work and school while sick makes bill go something something

Ok, so that obviously wasn’t really my first day of class.

By the way, if you were wondering why no update, and no online this week… well, see, I caught the plague. And I felt pretty damn shitty for a few days. I consumed about 2 gallons of OJ, 4 Sobe’s, ~6 dayquil gel capsuls, ~6 echinacea pills, half a box of kleenex and about 10 orange otter pops. And I think I can safely say that none of it helped much at all.

But my first day did go alright, I suppose. I’ve got Jahnel for history again, so no suprises there. My CS classes are both online – which is nice – but it looks like my javascripting teacher’s webpage kinda, well, sucks – which, makes me wonder. And she’s using Blackboard, which she referred to as the “Bee’s Knees”. Personally I think Blackboard is pretty crappy, and more than a little awkward to use. And again, as a Website Designer, I’m not sure why she’d pick that, instead of making her own (like my perl scripting teacher has done).

My english teacher reminds me of that pothead guy from Road Trip… or Alexander, the Pussycats’ Band Manager if you prefer. Somewhat in looks, but totally in the way he talks.

I think I may ask this Lisa from work if she wants to hang out. She’s most definitely one of the nicest people I’ve met at PetCo. She’s a lot different from some of the other people that work there, too. Especially for a cashier. I don’t know why, but management has this tendency to hire cashiers based on one or more of these factors:

  • a) as old as possible
  • b) completely bitchy and cynical
  • c) deer in the headlights look
  • d) Those yet to make it to Step 1
  • e) wow, is it totally sick that I acutally remembered how to do an unordered list in HTML by hand? I feel the need to bathe…

Anyway, the point is, she managed to squeeze in between my store’s stringent anti-decent policy, and is probably one of my favorite people to talk to there, especially now that Melinda’s gone. She’s always good for a laugh, and she liked Fight Club and Memento.

Thats pretty much it.
