Ahoy! I'm updating! So, quite a bit has happened in the months that have passed. I've moved twice (I'm now at Frontenac and Union) and am nearly done my thesis! Hurray!

Onto other things. Harper as PM = boo-urns. I was reading yet another article about him on and I began thinking: How did this douchebag get to be PM? I don't know. I'm hating this US-style patriotism talk, too. For instance, if someone in the House mentions anything about an Afghanistan pull-out, then Harper drops the "how can you question the war while our troops are dying? aren't you patriot?" I want to punch his ugly face in. I hate him. I hate his "I'm your father, I know what's best" attitude.

Next. The lab is having a ceiling put in to (partially) cover the overhanging pipes. Great! However, the implementation is a little fucked. Apparently, whomever conceived of the plan, thought it would be completely accaeptable to have the workmen come in one day, move all the shit around in the lab, put nine tiles up, and then leave for 3 weeks. Then they come back today, do a little more work, and leave. At this pace, they might be done by the time I'm leaving in Decemeber. Brilliant, just brilliant. Because, y'know, having half the lab as a permanent construction zone helps me work better. The drilling and hammering is nice too. Now I don't have to intentionally distract myself anymore.

That brings me to my next criticism. When the Powers That Be decided to put this ceiling in, there was no discussion with us, the people who actually use the lab. Nope, the Powers just decided it was a good idea.

Anyway, that's it for now.

Why does everyone always feel obliged to tell you that you live in a shithole? I live in a shithole. I know this. I've known this for the 8 months I've been living here. You coming to my house and telling me it's a shithole is not news. It's rude.

Why do I bring this up? Well it seems that everytime someone brings somone adulty to our apartment, they have to put their nose in the air and complain about how gross it is. And then refuse to use our washroom or something. Well this is what I have to say to you:
Get the fuck out of my house.

Moving on. It's been quite a while since I last updated. I can't even recall what I last posted about (on LiveJournal, not Blogger). I'm now a graduate student at Queen's University at Kingston. I work in a building that feels like a converted sanitarium. All the walls are concrete, and my lab has exposed pipes on the ceiling. However, I don't mind that. What I find really annoying is people who ride the elevator up or down 1 floor. Unacceptable. You may only use the elevator to go up or down 3 or more floors. 2 floors in the gray area, and I'll tolerate it sometimes. But 1 floor? Fuck you.

Well, now that LiveJournal has officially gone evil, it looks like I have to move my blog over to Blogger. On the bright side, I'm saving Google the trouble of having to collect my personal blog information.

I'd write more, but I'm a tad tired.
