See, the reason I don't update for awhile sometimes is because I'm often working on larger projects that can be slow progress at times.

It's annoying to put the same picture up multiple times with incremental progress.


that and I forget to update.

Ah well.

I could blog about the interesting things that are happening right now, but it's 3:17 in the morning and I have to wake up in five and a half hours to feed my kitties and go to class, so I'm just going to do a photodump of unfinished work and leave it at that.

I'm almost better from being sick .

LIfe is pretty interesting at the moment.

Tempted to make a metaphor, but nothing that isn't a total cliche comes to mind.

All I'll say is that the days are nice, the people I see are great, and work is fan~tastic.

Also mystery berries may make lemons taste like lemonade, but a milkshake beer it does not make.

There is a chain of events (for me) that occurs when I possess an item.

In the beginning I treat the object with careful and tender delicate devotion. I greedily protect it from others, letting them touch it only when I am near. All the same I don't really understand it, and it is because of it's mystery that I am so interested in it.

After awhile it becomes a more normal part of my life. It will be used, or not, and it usually loses a fair amount of significance for me. I usually become somewhat flippant in my care of the object, and although I expect it to work for me, i will happily let others borrow it. This is the state of most objects. They exist to be used, but have lost the shine of newness, and are thus common.


A rare few move beyond this point. And for them i develop actual *affection*.

These are the objects that have lasted above and beyond the normal scheme of things, long after they should have broken, been lost, or just outlived their usefulness.

One such object is my dear old ibook. Going on five years it is now an antique in the computer world.

But having entered into the third stage in my mind, I cannot let it die.

I have just recently replaced its internal hardrive, have previously replaced its ram and its battery (which has to be taped in to stop it from falling out), the power cord is frayed and taped together, I have installed software to overclock the graphics card, and another two pieces of software to underclock the actual cpu as well as overdrive the fans respectively. The little feet have been replaced by makeshift eraser feet in order to keep it higher from whatever surface it is on and thus cooler, and I have to constantly keep it on a piece of wood so it doesn't have direct contact with anything and overheat.

The screen has parts that if touched make lines and madness appear, if a usb cable is pulled out unexpectedly it sometimes freezes up, if the machine gets a bit too hot it freezes completely, and the trackpad clicker no longer works.


And I love this machine.

It has a huge fast hardrive now, loads of memory, a fresh install of 10.4 with no bloatware and runs faster than most machines I go on with almost all basic tasks.

It's my beautiful frankenbook, and by god I'm going to keep it alive until it blows off my hands.



On another happy note, school is fantastic, my classes and teachers are the best I've ever had, and I absolutely believe that this year is going to prepare me for the future better than I could have believed.

I feel stable, happy and blissfully moving in the right direction.


Also I'm going to eat miracle berries next weekend!

There is a delicate balance for me with the tastiness of food.

It is not just simply a matter of the food BEING tasty.

That is, well cooked, fresh ingredients, interesting combinations, etc.

That is simply the *first test*.

Then there are other factors.

1st. The price of the food.

A five dollar burger that is good tasting is is infinitely better than a 100 dollar burger that is delicious.

It actually *tastes better* simply by having a better price to taste ratio.


Difficulty in obtaining the food.

If I have to go significantly out of my way, wait an inordinate amount of time, or am in some way inconvenienced more than would be expected the quality of the food drops.


uh. yeah, those two above are pretty much the main factors.


In any case I waited in line for probably close to an hour and a half today for a burger with some friends.

the wait wasn't bad, it was a beautiful day and my friends were there.

but dammit if a delicious burger and a shake wasn't downgraded severely because of it.

So the first week of school is done.

I think it's the just the way that my brain works, but it already feels like summer was a lifetime ago.

Don't mind really.

Every class that I have looks *amazing*.

Great teachers, great lessons, great people.


My hand is aching (not unpleasantly) from drawing, still have a few sketches left to do, friends are lounging nearby working and relaxing, and I'm about to head out to relax and enjoy my saturday night.
