Lunch: walk home, take dog to park 3 blocks from home, dog does business, dog chases 8 squirrels, I try to keep up, walk dog home, walk towards office, get hot pastrami & rye sandwich, catch bus ride to office, sit at my desk & eat.

Nice wheels Vas. Finish them however you want. I have polished lips and black centers. I like the polished part better than the black centers but that is just me.

The controls lab today was lighter work and there were a couple funny moments. We all had to use this one computer with a special program for a lab, taking turns and saving data. Then we all brought flash drives over and took turns downloading the data. Someone mentioned they were still using the flash drive they got for WoW (Week of Welcome -- a freshman thing at Cal Poly where seniors show them around the town.). In the course of that conversation I mentioned I had not done WoW. This guy then got this hilarious look on his face. A combination of amazement, horror, and rage. "YOU DIDN'T DO WOW?!!!". I was like "Uh, No, man. I preferred an extra week of summer (plus it costs extra for WoW)." I mentioned I have plenty of fun stuff to do where I am from. Then he starts off on a short tirade about "That's the whole point- to get you out of your comfort zone!!!" I'm like "Whatever ."

I did have flashbacks to this thread, though.

I am still laughing about his reaction.

I did not make any excuses. Just stating the facts.

You're right. I did not give an excuse and you did not accuse me of it.

I do have a bedroom to myself and pretty much a bathroom to myself. I rarely see my roommates. So the benefits of living on campus (short bike ride to/from class, no need to drive the car there) outweigh the drawbacks for the most part.

I am still thinking about how funny that guy's reaction was today in controls. My lab partner later said that the guy is a big nerd, but I guess my lab partner does not know that I am most likely an even bigger one. My lab partner did some of WoW when he was not at basketball practice and he said a lot of it was pretty lame games. So I am glad I did not waste my money on that. I prefer to do my exploring around SLO now as a senior. I guess I might have become more comfortable earlier if I had done that as a freshman but whatever. Can't change that now.

It is just funny how me not going to that silly, optional program from 4 years ago blew his mind and provoked such a strong reaction.

One of the first dates I got after I moved to Oklahoma was a real genuine dumb Blond. I was new to town and 24 years old and did not know anyone except some co-workers that were all married. I don't even remember how I met up with this chick. I am pretty sure she was the dumbest broad I ever dated. I was not looking for a conversation or a long term relationship.

I went to her apartment to pick her up. She wanted to show me around her tiny apartment. We walked into her bedroom and coming from upstairs was some loud squeaky bedsprings and moaning. She did not hesitate to say "I don't know what they are doing up there but they do it all the time."

I did not read the article. It was a nice enough place when I was there. Except for the Kamikaze deer population it seemed like a nice place.

While I agree that it is a great place to live I find it funny how it seems highly subjective. The writer has traveled and done some surveys but still it does not seem like there is much objectivity.
