catching up

So during this break, I've done minimal studying. I still have much to cover, but I think I can catch up. Everything comes to a head on Thursday, when I get my Iron Ring, baby! Can't wait.

So I finally headed down to Golden Bowl's new competitor, Winnsie (or however it's spelled). This new Asian joint is pretty good. It's just like Da Bowl, except they have a sushi bar, to boot. The prices are comparable and the place is bigger. I ordered the peanut butter dumplings and the garlic butter pork chops. Oh my god. Delicious! I've never had pork that way. I would most definitely recommend going there to anybody. The prices are good, too. Under $10, with no tax (technically, the tax is included, but whatever...).

So there's this band called Alexisonfire. I saw a couple of their videos. I hate them! This is what they're all about: some guys cranks out distorted chords on their guitars, while the 'singer' SCREECHES at the top of his lungs...for 3 minutes. This is music? At the risk of sounding like an old fart, if that's what music is coming to, I'll keep my Bing Crosby LPs, thank you very much. If ever you come across Alexisonfire, run, don't walk, away. You'll thank me later.

Spring Break!

Well, having gone to school only 2 days this week, I'm already getting a head start on spring break! I'm not going in until Tuesday, March 2nd...11 days from now!

I plan to catch up on movies I need to see, tv shows I've been neglecting and oh yeah!...studying. I got 2 midterms when I get back.

So time to chillax.

I'll keep y'all posted.

New style

I just changed the template of the blog from pea green to...this. You likey?

4 day weekend

So I didn't go to school on Friday. And I'm not planning to go tomorrow (Monday). 4 day weekend is amazing...if it weren't addled with work!

My iron ring ceremony is allegedly on the 4th of March. However, I have 2 midterms that day! 2! Imagine I'm forced to miss iron ring for a test? Not cool. Not remotely cool.

I've noticed my blog is usually made of little tidbits...Reading other people's blogs, I realized the stark difference. Other people talk about where they went, what they did, have amusing anecdotes about stuff. Nothing like that here. Mainly cuz I don't go and do much. In fact, what did I do just yesterday (Saturday)? I worked on a prelab for DSP class. All night. Yeehaw! Let the good times roll!

My Xbox calls my name, yet I am forced to turn a deaf ear. I yearn to play games, however I have loads of stuff to do first. Can't wait till next week: spring break. Am I going to party like crazy and go somewhere? Hell no. I will stay at home and sleep/play video games all day. That's how it goes.

So goodbye, farewell, auf wiedersehen, adieu. I'll catch up will everyone (I have readers?) later.

MEAT!!

So Saturday we went to Le Milsa Brazilian restaurant for Dave/Mo's bday. It's all you can eat of 10 different types of meat. Sirloin, pork, filet mignon, chicken, etc etc....
It was incredible. Sure, they also give you potatoes and salad but the meat's where it's at! The Sirloin was so tender...it melts in the mouth. What beautiful food, if food can be called beautiful.
Dave and Mo each got a vintage Habs jersey as gifts and they seemed quite pleased.

Afterwards, we went to Dave's and hung out. We caught parts of movies on the dish. Jeepers Creepers 2 is hilarious! It's one of those movies that's so bad, it's entertaining..unlike Gigli which is so bad, it's unwatchable.

Alright, dawgs, I'm out for now. School work is a-calling!

Busy busy

So I was at school for a good deal last night and had an overwhelming urge to go see the Super Furry Animals concert, just like that, out of the blue.

Alas, everyone bailed on me. (by everyone, I mean, like, 2 people, but whatever).

Besides that, today is Mo and Dave's bday dinner. We're going to this Brazilian joint with supposedly 3 things on the menu. One of them is all-you-can-eat meat. hmmm....meat

Meanwhile, this stupid comp arc lab assignment #2 is causing much grief. As I mentioned in the last post, the best laid plans of mice and men often go astray. How true. Word comes now that everyone has been doing the assignment incorrectly. Back to the drawing board with a Monday dude date! Argh.

Sad news for fans of Ed, as the "season finale" was aired yesterday. 17 episode season? C'mon! You so know that NBC isn't renewing it next season. Oh well...here's to the happiest little show few people watched.

Wonders of the Net

Have I ever mentioned how great BitTorrent is? I missed Scrubs last night, cuz I was watching 24. No worries! I simply downloaded it! Everything works out fine! Hooray!

On the other hand, DSP lab is nutty. It's much harder doing it and DTSP at the same time, but DSP requires info from DTSP that we haven't learned yet. Roughness...

On the next other hand, CompArc Lab doesn't seem too bad. I'm hopinh to finish it on Friday. although, the best laid plans of mice and men often go astray, as they say...

Did anyone see 24 last night? It was pretty nutty. It's the halfway mark and who knows what will happen in the coming 12 episodes! Wow, I love that show.

A big happy bday to Mo. Happy bday Mo.

Super Bowl

So during Janet's super bowl hijinx, I read that TiVo usage went through the roof. Everyone was rewinding the live feed to see if they saw what they thought they saw.

Anyway, Super Bowl fun was had at Mo's. Lots of sodas and chips were consumed. Afterwards, Ameeeeesh trashed talked at Halo, so we just had to go back to Dave's place to hash it out. I would say we're all around the same skill level. I want to play again when I'm less tired and queezy, as I was yesterday.

It's looking as if there will be another GameDay this weekend, but of a different sort. Maybe exterior activities will occur (bowling, people? followed by dvds/movies/food/games?). Only time will tell...I guess...

Oh, and the Super Bowl was pretty entertaining, too.

MegaDay is a go

So, MegaDay went down at Dave's, yesterday. 11 people were there, including Dave: Allison, Samir, Karthik, Jean (fresh from 'Nam), Rice-a-roni, Carmen, Me, Mo, Franco and Joe. We played Clue, Taboo, the Game of Life and the much loved Murder Mystery game, Mafia King.

At 1:30ish, everyone bolted. Dave berated people for leaving so early, so I stayed. Dave suggested we try and watch Gigli for a lark. We tried, but after an hour, it was too unbearable. Really rough....It's so bad.

Anyway, today was hockey, and we played for 2 hours. This little punk kid was at the rink and outskated everyone. He was such a hog, though. Should have crosschecked him across the back!!!

Now, after a nice Terry's meal, I am tired and will soon retire to my bedchambers. Tomorrow is the Super Bowl, with a gathering at Mo's. I'm sure much merry-making will occur.

Oh yeah, about Mafia King, Carmen is so evil!!! She's all like, "Oh I wonder who the murderer is" and nobody suspects her...Very deceitful...Gotta keep an eye on her next time we play... Tricksy hobbit...
