Last update today, I promise.

Of course, there are only 2.5 hours left of today, so how many more could I do?

Anyway, I went to the VA Tech candlelight vigil tonight, which made me think. Why can't we as a society be this close all the time? Why do we come together only in times of tragedy? Sure, we come together in times of joy, too, but eventually we go on with our lives, which saddens me. Why do we need something this shocking to bond us?

In other less depressing news, I did what I do every semester, and I put the rest of my semester on Post-it notes.

I just realized that sometimes my print isn't readable. Of course, my cursive isn't all that readable either, but the 3 May post-it says that I have an astronomy paper due on galactic cannibalism. I seriously pulled that topic out of nowhere ten minutes before class. It went something like this:

9:00am Tuesday morning
"Oh crap, I need a topic."
*opens astronomy book and turns a few pages*
"Ooh, cannibalism! Galactic cannibalism! I remember this."
*opens OpenOffice and makes up a few sentences on the topic to turn in*

I still made it to class on time, too. Go me.

Also, I just added one more Post-it for the "First of May" lyrics. Yes, another Jonathan Coulton song. How did you guess? The song's about having sex outside, so click with caution. Speaking of which, the song's available for free download on the site, and the karaoke version (!!!) is available for free download on the main page for the month of April. It's not his fault if you get punched in the face for singing it in public, though. I should add one for No Pants Day that Friday. Coincidence that First of May and No Pants Day are within a week of each other? I think not.

I put mine on notecards. Perhaps I'll take a picture.

Galactic cannibalism. Interesting.

Where are you getting your book? Am I going to see you at midnight at Barnes and Noble?

Right now I have an order through Amazon, and I'll get it on the 21st. I don't have a car, so I probably won't be at the release party. (Party pooper, I know.) Plus I don't want someone there to open to the last page and yell "___ dies!" Seriously, I'm disconnecting all methods of contact after the book comes out in the UK. That's how serious this gets.

Little parts of the Internet are going to explode after DH comes out.

The 'thing to do' on my hall is blow up balloons and write your exam/essay on them. That way when you're done with one you get to pop it. I think it's a thing from SAFE women.

I remember a lot of people doing that, too. I can't stand the sound of balloons popping, though (I think it stems from my childhood or something), so I stick to post-its.

*sings Re: Your Brains to go with your icon* Hrm, I need some JoCo lyric icons. I'll do that when I get a chance...and improve my graphic-making superpowers.
