Today went by pretty fast. I got up, got dressed, drove over to Terry Café for lunch and then went to OUGL for a few hours and yea….Came back to my room and few minutes later headed back to Terry for dinner. I ate with Andrew, he is in Lander 8th floor for Summer. Poor guy, the room is so small I can’t even go in the door, LITERALLY. I think most of the people didn’t think to hard while designing. Hell, look at me! I am on the top floor of a building, and I thought being one floor up at McCarty was bad. But hey what do we know, we are just little peons. When I came back from dinner, around 6:15 it was bright and sunny, now it’s gone!
I upgraded to XP Pro on Friday, I didn’t pay a dime, borrow a disk, or “sample it from KaZaA”. It is a 100% legal copy too, muwhahahaha.

I am still waiting for NateDogg (& Mindy?) to say if he is using my room or not. He blames Mindy for not knowing yet, aaaw poor Mindy. 😥 LOL
