end of school

So I finally did it. I wrote my last undergrad exam. Ahhhhhhh the sweet feeling of being finished school after all these years.

So afterwards, we went to AMC Forum to the former Jillian's restaurant. We ate and watch the hockey game. I predicted a 4-1 TB win, but they only won 3-1....pity. Anyway, a good time was had by all. Over a dozen peeps from school attended and we had fun.

Then we went upstairs to the arcade place and the fun began. Karthik asked this big tough-looking black guy if he could play table hockey. The guy told him to back the eff away. Karthik doesn't take kindly to things of that nature and a seriously murderous gleam entered his eyes. He was immovable. The guy started shoving him, unprovoked. Soon, 10 people were in a huge shoving match, almost toppling the table hockey set. In the middle was Bassem, holding people apart. If I thought Karthik was immovable, man, Bassem was a rock. So much so that I'm giving him the nickname The Rock from now on. Anyway, more people jumped in and the fight was separated, with the big guy's glasses almost broken.

Then we all left.

Few notes

So last night, Tim Meadows was on Kilborn. Man, do I enjoy him. He's such a funny dude, too bad, he's doing nothing nowdays. Sigh...

So on The Simpsons a few weeks back, they went to a science fiction convention. It was called Bi-Mon Sci-fi Con. I feel cheated. I thought I came up with To-Ron Sci-Fi Con and its weaker brother, Mon Sci-Fi Con. Oh well... :(

weather pixie

Well, I was growing dissatisfied with my current blog weather service, so I followed JBo's excellent advice and put my very own WeatherPixie. Damn you Jbo! You selected the nicest one. I was gonna take her, too, then I looked at yours and it was the same. And here I thought we had different tastes...you with the redheaded waifs. Oh well.

If anyone wants to help test this out, email...err..i mean "gmail" me at droopymcc@gmail.com
Werd...

Expos home opener tonight! Yes!!! Also, Habs play TB. Should be a good game, maybe I'll catch the replay on CBC at night.

Did anyone see my boys Calgary put Detroit away in OT? Yehess!!!!

Gmail, dvds

Have you seen google's new webmail thing, Gmail? It's like hotmail, except you can store 1 GB of emails and stuff. Perfect if I download something huge elsewhere. I can send it to myself and re-coup it when I get home. Also, it incorporates google into the email. I can therefore search my emails using google. Neat.

Ok, has anyone seen this new Pizza Hut promotion? You order pizza and they send you a DVD to watch with your pizza. The 3 choices of movies are: Lost in Space, Weekend at Bernie's and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Yeah, I can't wait till the 2nd phase of this promotion when they give out Masters of the Universe, Death Becomes Her and Ski School. Jesus, man! Who's the ad wizard behind giving bum-f*** nothing movies with pizza? I laughed out loud when I saw that commercial.

To all those skipping the home opener to watch Game 1 on tv: I am severely disappointed.

links

A couple of neat links (thanks to fark.com):

Delorean
and Star Destroyer.

I thought that was neat.

So, where would YOU go in a Delorean?

I couldn't resist.

I couldn't resist. Sorry, JBo.
Fanta ad.

Go Flamos

Well, the Flames/Canucks series came to an excellent end. The best series of the first round looked like it was over until Vancouver scored with 5 seconds left in the third, tying it. But worry not, for Calgary came back and won in overtime, sending the pansy Canucks packing. Take that, Bertuzzi. Loser.

Day 2 of my break till my next exam begins thusly: wake up at 11:45. Read newspaper, come to computer, write this entry.

So the Canadiens won. Wow. Those Boston losers must be crying into their Bruins jerseys. Thornton was such a non-entity that people were calling for him to be stripped of his captain-"C".

The good thing about having some time: catching up on DVDs.
The bad thing: not much to talk about on blogs.

nothing for a while

Yup! I got nothing for a while. My last exam is on the 29th. Hooray!! I get to catch up on DVDs. Yehess...

Also, I get to look forward to the baseball home opener. I cannot wait.

I finally saw Bubba Ho-Tep, and it was very funny...and had a little message, to boot, about old people still being useful. Anyway, it was a fun movie. Very weird, but fun. Ossie Davis was hilarious.

Kill Bill: Vol.2 surpasses the first, so you should check that out, too. As for me, I'm gonna play some video games, watch some movies and generally chill for now. Ahh....the good life.

smokers

To the girl who was smoking in front of me in line for the bus:

After sucking a last drag from that cigarette, you blew a lungful of smoke in my face.

To all smokers: I wish you all a painful and emphasemic death.

That is all.

POST'D

Did you see the hockey game yesterday? "Oh, I'm Kovalev! I will grab my wrist and abandon the puck. Not only that, but I will take Souray out of the play, as well. Oh, look at me act!" Loser.

Meanwhile, the Calgary/Vancouver series has gotta be the most exciting series out there. Very fun to watch. Go Flamos!

What the hell is up with these Expos? Everyone predicted their pitching would suck, but they'd have nuts hitting. Now that the season started, it's the opposite!! Their pitching is something like 3rd best in the league but their hitting is last. Dead last. They're batting a collective .190! The only team nearly as bad it...the Yankees! They're somewhere near .208. Hopefully, if their batting wakes up, they'll win many games.

Good job, Omar, on signing Livan Hernandez! Yay!

Man, so this final on Friday? Screwed! What am I to do? Sooooo nutty. Why did I ever volunteer to do what's basically Signals 3? Oh my...

After Friday, my next (and last) exam is on April 29th, so I have plenty of time to do that. So, Friday night: Kill Bill: Vol.2? Perhaps!

So, I downloaded all 20 episodes of Star Wars Clone Wars cartoon and made a VCD out of them. It's so neat. I must rewatch it.

So, the lady from SNC calls and says she'll call back next week to tell me when I start. When I start? She didn't even outright tell me I got the job. I guess I did...
Meanwhile x2, I keep checking the online posting of Tyco Brossard. I've been rejected for 5 of the 6 positions I applied for. But the 6th...I meet the criteria! Hopefully, I'll get an interview. Imagine working in Brossard? Screw SNC's summer position, if that's the case. This would be permanent!

Anyway, I'm out homeys.

P.S.: I will update some stuff on itoopia.com next week. Stuff is busy now.

update

So I was watching the Expos game today. Yesterday, they won 1-0 and today, lost 4-1. What's the matter with them? Before the season started, everyone thought the hitting would be potent and the pitching, suspect. But now it's the opposite! The pitching rocks but they can't hit to save their lives! Argh! It's so frustrating. Once the hitting wakes up, though, watch out, NL East. This team will win a bunch of games.

Anyway, I was watching the game and Cliff Floyd injured himself, chugging to first base. This guy is 6'4'', 230+ pounds. As he's running, he pulls something. When you're that big, I suppose it's easy to pull something. That weight must be a tremendous strain on his frame. At least he's all built and stuff. Maybe he can deal with it better than, say, Yao Ming. Sure, Yao is also muscular, but his weight is divided among his body more. He's like a horse. If he even breaks his leg they gotta shoot him.

Has anyone seen that Yao Ming is going out with some star on the Chinese woman's basketball team? Wouldn't it be hilarious if they have kids and they're, like, hobbit-size?

Man, what a week this will be. Reports due, finals to study for...lab to attempt to demo at the last minute (actually, after the last minute). Sigh...

Oh, and the Star Wars Clone Wars cartoons ended this week with a bang. Episodes 18 and 19 had Anakin fighting Asaaj Ventress on Yavin 4. Very cool. The rain sizzling on the lightsabres was great. Then in episode 20, they introduced General Grievous (pictured below). He's a lightsabre wielding Droid general and a badass, to boot. This guy is gonna be a villain in episode 3 and allegedly has a fight with Obi-Wan. If that fight is anything close to his first appearance in this cartoon, then it will be awesome. Go download the episodes from www.suprnova.org or here. Well worth it. I hope the success of these Genndy Tartakovsky made cartoons sparks a full length animated series. That would be wicked.
All rightey, peeps. It's time to overeat. It's Easter.

The end of an era

Yesterday was the end of an era. I attended my last lecture as an undergraduate student (for the record, it was DTSP, of which I understoof little). I can't even understand what this means, having finished school. Sure, I still have a few reports to hand in, and 2 finals, but wow! Never to attend a lecture. Nice.

And as a bonus surprise, I got a call yesterday for an interview at SNC for a summer position. Sure, it's nothing permanent, but it'll be good experience. The interview went well. The lady asked me a few questions and made sure I know how to write and speak and generally found out if I was interested. She eventually said I'm an excellent candidate for the position and she'll find out next week what happens. The position would be technical writing, more specifically, writing the help files for their in-house project management software, or something. Let's see what becomes of this.

Baseball season

Aha!! Today, the Expos start the season!! Excellent....let's go!

Skimming through my regular blogs (by my fellow ECE students), there is a feeling of sadness going around. People are getting sentimental about this being the last week. I didn't even realize. Thursday marks my last undergraduate lecture (I hope). I suppose it is sad. But it's not the same since we moved to Trottier. Back in McConnell, we used to hang in McC12, eating lunch and stuff. Sure, Trottier has the Halo lab, but it's not the same. Remember in PErfect Strangers, when they moved from the apartment to the house? It wasn't the same after that. Same thing.

Anyway, no time to think about stuff. Too many things this week to realize what's going on.

Nutty week

Well, this coming week will be nutty. Comp arc presentation. Lab demo x2. Quizzes, etc. Argh! So with all this stuff, I'm naturally looking forward to my Sunday night tv lineup. But alas, everything is a repeat (except for Arrested Development, hooray!). I heard the The Simpsons was new today, but apparently, that's false. I don't know what to believe anymore.

Ok, back to work.

Still at school

Wow, I've been at school a lot lately, with no end in sight. So much to work on, most specifically Comp arc lab project. Argh!
Tomorrow is Saturday, which will be spent at school. Tonight will be spent doing school-related stuff. Sunday will see me write a DSP lab report. Next week...well, I don't even wanna think about next week. I haven't even had time to explore my Weezer DVD that I bought recently. Fie, oh fie!

Whew, another deadline met! Stupid DTSP assignment!! What's the teacher's problem anyway!?

Why can't baseball season start any sooner?

Anyway, I'm out for now.
