On Wednesdays, I have a 3-hour lab at 7:30 in the morning. Ten minutes after that, I have the lecture for that same class. An hour after that, I have another class.
All in the same building.
So I spend upwards of six hours in the EE building on Wednesdays... joy.

Well, today I finished the lab two hours early. We had to implement a set of specific functions with the integrated circuits in our lab kit. But during the pre-lab in which I designed my circuit, I didn't have my kit with me... so I wasn't aware what chips were actually at my disposal. I made some conservative guesses and designed my circuit.
Turns out one of the chips I used three times, wasn't in the kit.
So I cheated.
I used one of the integrated circuits from one of my other classes.

But that's not the point of this update.
The point is, after I got out of the lab, I sat out in front of the classroom for my next class for about 90 minutes--which means I sat through the entire lecture before us. So that means I heard the teacher assign their homework at the beginning of class.
She told them, "Your homework is to engage in deviant behavior."
I think one of them should've walked out of class as their deviant behavior. But no-one did.

And! On the walk to the lab this morning (around 6:45, I guess), I saw a rabbit on one of the large grails outside some building. It reminded me of how our cats would sleep on top of the heat registers back at our old house. And it was kinda chilly today.

And I think I saw a squirrel bullying a chipmunk outside of my dorm on my way to dinner today. I chastised the squirrel, but he just gave me a look as if he was thinking "What, you want some of this?"

Damn them!

The Gideons came to school! They caught me completely unprepared! Grrr.

Oh, well. I don't really have enough money to buy a couple dozen copies of the Bhagavad-Gita and give one to each Gideon who gives me a Bible. Though I did to one.

Maybe some year I'll get a large box of Necronomicon's and set up shop right next to one of them, pushing a Necronomicon on everyone who gets a Bible.

[Somebody] I hate you.
[Me] That makes two of us.
[Somebody] You hate yourself?
[Me] Everbody does it; I just want to be popular.

Random Duck quotes et al.

"And tonight I have a message for the people of Iraq: go home and die."Earlier this week, I was having a dream about... something related to death or the afterlife. I can't rightly recall.
But anyway, when I woke up there was this really bright light shining down on me, and my first thought was "Oh crap, I'm dead."
But it turned out to be the moon. So I went back to sleep.

"Duck is a terrorist! Behold Duck and his mighty arsenal of atoms, any number of which Duck might split at the slightest provocation!"
"Uh... Duck, are you all right?"
"!! Why you...! Just for that, Duck's gonna split some atoms right nOW! OH DEAR GOD, DUCK'S SPINE!

"Oh yeah? Well, Duck's written a book that's so holy you're not allowed to read it. In fact, Duck should be put to death for being blasphemous enough to write the thing!"
