Will.i.am has a song called "#thatpower".

It's becoming harder and harder to remember a time when he was actually a person...

Fuck it all. This is gonna be a long one.

Over the weekend, we had a conference. Largest conference of its kind in the field, hosted by our endowed chair in that field. I spent all fucking weekend being diligent and cheerful and helpful, and even calm in the face of having to call the cops on a herd of dicks who take their research just a little too seriously.

I made it through the panel I was presenting on, got up to leave the table, and got caught in the tablecloth--and, predictably, fell and got hurt. Moving is sheer agony today, and because I'm technically a student here, even if I work for the university, I can't call it an on-the-job injury--so if I get seen for it, I have to go to the health center and get shitty treatment there.

So it continues today: A project dead to me will not stay so, and if the chirpy little office minion assigned to take it over emails me one more time, I am printing all those files out and filming myself setting it on fire, just to show it to her to prove a point. Miss Chirpy, I know the faculty told you to get the "information" they sent to me from me. Two things wrong with that:

1) I'm not dropping another second of time on a project some of the faculty bitched and moaned about not being done, then bitched and moaned about how it was done,

2) They're trying to get out of doing anything toward completion (few people actually sent useful information), so they're hoping to inconvenience me instead, because I've shown myself to be the department workhorse. Ain't happening. Get info from them. Make them work. Or better yet, send them to me directly. In person. So I can tell them that, hi, you need to give the info to Chirpy, because you obviously didn't like the info I used before.

And fucking fuck, my knees hurt and won't stop hurting and I don't want to be in this hellhole where it's already in triple-digit heat and it's not even fucking June yet.

UCR, right? It's supposed to cool down a bit by the end of the week--and you're almost to the end of the school year (not that that really helps when you get to the end-of-the-year, climbing-the-wall and sweltering-in-the-unusually-early-heat time). Do you ever feel like a hamster in a wheel, running and running and getting nowhere?

Oh, most definitely. Third year is a pain in the ass like that, and it doesn't help that both my disability liaison and my committee chair are leaving this year. Bonus with the heat? After the quarter ends, I get a couple weeks off to go swelter in DC with the relatives, then I come right back to our heat to teach for five weeks.

The one upside is that we have been getting amazing emails from conference participants about how well we did, including a really nice one that thanked me by name for all my hard work all weekend. It makes the x-rays and ice packs worth it.

So because I have a raging fever, it's really fucking hot, and my girlfriend for some reason turns the air conditioner off ever night I was only able to get 1 hour of sleep. I came to a different room, turned on the air conditioner there, and laid down to try to get sleep. No sooner do I do that but my girlfriend comes into the room and declares "I HAD A REALLY BAD NIGHTMARE!"

Now she's being shitty and passive-aggressive because I wasn't exactly thrilled to hear her 999th dream she's told me about where her grandma dies peacefully in her sleep and that's all that happens and oh look she's off in the other room sleeping. Man, I wish I could do that. Too wired now. Funny, I was just about to nod off finally when you just HAD to tell me all about your nightmare no I had no choice.

My married sister is spending two weeks here with me because she STILL hasn't had the Air Guard know that she lives in New Mexico. And the rest of the family is in another state for a church thing.

First thing he does when she comes in? Tells me how messy the house is when I'm chasing a mud covered dog around. Then she tells me she's on a diet to lose weight and gets a chicken pot pie meal out and refuses to eat the fish and salad that I made her.

She then invites her friend over and they drink coffee until 2 AM. And she sets her alarm in MY room so I can attempt to wake her at 10 am so she can go someplace.

Of course she just took two hours to get ready and was bitching at me the entire time because I woke her up.

I did call her a bitch right before she left, so I feel somewhat happy now.

I choose to believe this means you got a fancy new firearm of some sort, and you were eating a manwich while reading the instructions, and you didn't notice your stupidest friend walk up and start touching things, which caused him to accidentally fire the gun, shooting your manwich out of your and, which caused you to fall to your knees and yell, "MY MANWICH!"

Not actually today, rather about a week ago, but couldn't post right away because, well...

Computer died, very thoroughly. It had been halfway to grave for a long time, finally gave up the ghost. It was nice enough to wait until my school year was finished and I didn't need to write any more essays, but it wasn't nice enough to wait for us to have enough money saved for a new table computer.

I could have lived without a home computer for an undefined time, we live very close to a library. But roommate does a lot of his art on the computer and started getting serious withdrawal, so on Thursday we scraped together all we had and got the second cheapest laptop we could find. So all is well for now, yay.

Good news, I've been dropped from college for getting a 2.49 cumulative GPA instead of the college's 2.5 cumulative. The Something Bad Happened to Me Today Thread - Page 11 588739 fuck my life... now I have to hope this 3 week summer course will push me back up over the 2.5 so I can resume finishing my major. Angry

Nope, I just got an R/C quadrotor and they broke it. I've ordered another one and they're gonna pay me back for the original, but just in case, I also ordered a knife to duct tape to the quadrotor, which should deter...

I was watching the Price is Right, and noticed how different Drew Carey looked compared to when he was on "Whose Line is it Anyway?" 

It made me sad. I miss the pudgy, ugly guy who at least looked different, you knwo?

Now, it's like he's Clay Aiken's corpse.

Part of it just looks like he's getting older.

Maybe it's the Price Is Right Curse.  After Bob Barker, everyone who takes the job will quickly age in order to more closely resemble Bob Barker's animated corpse. Colbert

Did he lose the weight legitimately, or was it the Rex Ryan Fat Fuck method?

I'm taking medication that makes me drowsy. I fell asleep in my kitchen whilst eating a delicious BLT, and woke up four hours later to discover that I was covered in ants.

Did I mention my crippling insect phobia?

Just found out Eileen won't be able to visit WGW anymore because her laptop's been infected with a virus that originated from this site. It's the second time her laptop has suffered a virus infection in only a month and she doesn't want to risk having it happen a third time.
