Actually making progress

Well, well, well! It's only a quarter after nine in the evening and I've got a mere three and a bit more pages left to write. How did that even happen?? I still have to write an introduction, a conclusion, and one other key point (which I haven't figured out yet, but I will soon enough). That should be perfect. Yay!

Last night the entire MA cohort had a Non-denominational Holiday Party and Gift Steal. It was fantastic. There was food, and fun-ness, and great gifts. I got a tool kit. I needed a tool kit! At least twice I've lamented not having a hammer and now not only do I have one of those, but I also have a measuring tape, some pliers, two screwdrivers, and some other stuff. Can't beat that. Well, I suppose you can beat that. Other good gifts were: women's underwear, a USB key, a Kama Sutra book, a piece of artwork, a hip Toronto 'zine collection, a Chinese tea set, and some other things that slip my mind. I feel lucky with my tool kit. The gift I brought was a U of T t-shirt which was alright and well-liked by its recipient.

I didn't get to go shopping yesterday as planned so now I have nothing to wear to the faculty Christmas party that's happening tomorrow at a pub. Open bar and kitchen! Right on! I need an outfit. And a new mp3 player because I lost my ipod which I bought at Technomart from a very cute man who had me call him Opa and who wanted to drink beer and eat some crazy food with me but it never happened. I want an FM tuner on my next player and I'm considering not being sucked in my the crazy apple marketing scheme. I don't know if I can. That shuffle's mighty cute. Maybe tomorrow I'll go shopping for a bit.

Back to work. You should see my desk. I look very academic.

Good job on the test. Was it easy because you studied hard or because you're S-M-R-T, smart!?

I too find myself wanting a new ipod. I lost my 4G Nano in Hongdae dancing to...probably Billy Idol as he's probably the only artist that can get me moving to such a degree that my ipod would jump out of my shirt pocket and run away. So, now, i've downgraded to the OG Apple Shuffle 512MB. It's awesometacular for running as it's so light. I'm hoping my rich brother buys me the video Ipod for Christmas...or my Mom in a guilt driven spending spree (guilt over not seeing me) willl buy me something cool like that.

At any rate, if you want a built in FM tuner, check out the Zune from Microsoft. It may be worth it. If you bought any music from Apple though, it won't work on anything other than an Ipod (Booo!). So, you'll basically be losing that stuff.

Anyways, ttyl.
