Wax me
Mould me
Heat the pins and stab them in
You have turned me into this
Jush wish that it was bullet proof

So pay the money and take a shot
Leadfill the hole in me
I could burst a million bubbles
All surrogate and bulletproof

Well, this has been an interesting week to say the least. Last weekend I went to Dallas to have the first Texas Jabber dev meeting. It was at reatmon's house, so it was a limited attendance meeting. It was great to get away from school for a bit, have high speed Internet, great food and hack again. I didn't do much, but I played secretary and enjoyed the DSL. After getting back, I jumped right into the week with a call from my dad saying that my car is probably going to need the engine replaced and it may or may not be under warranty. Great. Still waiting to hear back on that one. This is our first week of school to not have a Monday off. This is going to be a long week.

I do not like the the new Dave Matthews Band single that is on the radio. I hope the rest of the CD isn't like that. Ugh.

I got a $10 off coupon at Amazon to buy any CD or DVD. The CD I want "leitmotif" by Dredg is $9.99. Hrmph. So, do I buy another CD or find a more expensive one? Iain, can you suggest a CD that you really like right now that I should try? I'm in the mood for some new UK acoustic / emo stuff. Dunno.

Poor Debian Gabber users are still waiting for me to fix the packages. I'm having a lot of trouble getting packages to fit all three distros. It doesn't help that it takes forever to rebuild C++ programs! Ah well.. I think I've almost got it.

Tomorrow (Wednesday) is my busy day. I also get to decide if I'm going to apply to be an RA for the floor next year. I think I'm going to go for it. I'm going to miss not having a roommate though. :(

Every day, every hour
I wish that I was bullet proof.
