Yellow Turtle Jr.

My blog now has a junior. For my first assignment in my Information Sciences class, I've had to make my own i312 assignment page. This will be the page that my instructor will use to grade all of my assignments, as I will be linking them to it. If you'd like to see the progress of the page, I'll be linking it here and hopefully finding an awesome picture to use as a logo. That way the wonder that is my junior page will always be just a click away.

Yellow Turtle Junior.

It looks extremely simple right now, but I'm actually enjoying this a lot. I'm learning about Unix and Linux, using xhtml and typing "pico" a lot, and just generally feeling awesome that in a few months I'm going to have a page that I've truly created from nothing.

In other news, I'm in love with Tina Fey and Steve Carell tonight. If you don't watch NBC on Thursday nights, you're really missing something good.

Football for Ladies

My friend Rebecca just posted about this, but I shall too.

You may have noticed the nice big Austin Outlaws logo to the right of this post. I highly suggest you visit the site, because it's only the most awesome thing in this world. Mainly because my friend Marci is a member of this female football team. She tried out, she wowed and impressed, and she got in. Words can't describe how proud I am, but they will have to eventually. Because I will be holding a sign up for her at every single home game.

Please visit the website and consider a game. If you want season tickets, you can buy them from my friend directly (I recommend this), or you can buy them through the website (I'm pretty sure you can get single game tickets through her too--ask me about it if you're interested). There are only 4 home games, and season tickets only cost $35. That's more than a single seat at an NFL game, and these girls are playing for the love of the sport rather than the money. Which always makes it better.

This post may seem rushed, because it is. I apologize for this. I am trying to publish before 5.

Go Marci!

Oh No!!

I mistakenly called Pig Pen Linus!! How can I ever call myself a Peanuts fan again?

Well, I've always liked them. But as is obvious, I was never a fanatic.

I shake my head in shame.

My apologies

I've been so quiet lately! Here's what's been going on:

I've been improving my GRE math score (by 50 points on the practice tests) so that I can take the GRE and THEN figure out what I'm going to do with it.

I've also begun a class at the university where I work that will ultimately teach me more HTML. Also, I shall know CSS. I'm a bit excited.

I've finally felt ok with running my cellphone battery down to nothing (like everyone says you're supposed to) before plugging it in to charge. This is a big deal for me, because I'm not known for my patience.

I've just realized that I have two of the boyfriend's books. I've begun reading both. I've finished neither.

I cleaned a bit around the house, so that I don't feel like I'm sharing a space with Linus.

I laughed a lot at the Caveman commercial again. How does he do it?!

I've realized that I probably have a rather unfortunate addiction to the show Dirty Jobs. This revelation came when my roommate was flipping through channels in the living room. She came across Dirty Jobs and said, "Look, it's your favorite show." And then she proceeded to change the channel. Even though I wasn't even in the same room and therefore had no say over what was on the TV, my heart broke a little when Mike Rowe's voice disappeared.

I watched a Modern Marvels about balls. I'll leave it at that.

Just an aside: how did The History Channel swing www.history.com? Crazy.
