Pointless Post #20

So many useless things to say, so little time. And I'm supposed to be taking notes in class right now... I was good during the first half, but my productivity and concentration dipped after the prof gave the class a break.

In other Tim-news, DO NOT, I repeat, DO NOT watch funny Super Bowl commercials in class if you want to maintain your dignity and be respectful of everyone, especially the one lecturing at the front of the room... kekeke... 8^D.
Hey dummy, I often dream of punting small animals... not punching.

This is so punny! Happy "Niú" Year!
Niú is the pinyin romanization for cow/ox in Mandarin and this Chinese new year is the year of the ox! Ok get it? Now read this.
It's funny because it's a cow! It's so cute! I love puns!
I could go for a good burger right now!
Om nom nom nom!

Pointless Post #18

Sandwiches are great. I have no problem making a sandwich at home, plopping myself in front of the TV and then eating it (hopefully, with something interesting on, otherwise CTV Newsnet wins by default). The problem with sandwiches manifests when I pack them into a bag, put them in my backpack and bring them somewhere, 99% of time to school. By the time I get around to eating them, they are usually partially squished. I could, of course, carry them in some sort of hard container, but then I hate carrying around empty containers because they make my bag bulky. Bulky bags are a problem when you have to transfer 2-3 times on public transit. In summary, yellow mustard is a fantastic condiment.

I saw gas at a low of 90.9¢/litre and a high of 95.9¢/litre today.

2009 feels like 2008

Happy 2222, as per this post. Haha, my jokes were even lamer 2 years ago...

School is started. For some strange reason, I feel like I haven't been to school in a loooong time, although it's only been a month. Very strange. Maybe it's all the snow.

Speaking of snow, I am very close to hating it. The movie The Day After Tomorrow will always be more meaningful to me now because of how many kilometers I've trudged through snow this past month. I am so glad however that it's all melting away... slowly. The rain keeps coming down as if we live in Seattle or something (sarcasm), but I am ultra thankful that it's not snow, even though it has been very messy the past few... days... no wait, weeks.

By the way, if you live on a street that has street drains/catch basins/whatever they're called that are buried by snow and you want to clear them up to allow water and melted snow to flow down it, check out Google Maps or Microsoft's Live Search Maps to try and aid you in finding those things. Worked for me, so I thought I might mention it.

Kind of pointless to mention (but not pointless enough for it's own post), but I've been starting to get behind in reading and replying to emails (not to mention all my feeds in Google Reader).... and I just realized todat that my SFU email has not been forwarding to my regular Yahoo email because of a system switchover that happened recently. I have lots of tedious stuff ahead of me now... and course information to catch up on, yikes.

Happy New Year from Lance
