Wee! I just helped Jason put together his very first home-made PC. We haven’t powered it up yet, it’s break time first. Lets hope it doesn’t explode. We’re both idiots so there’s a very good chance of that happening (jk). Anyway, we’ve been ordering the parts all month and today the final piece came. Now comes the o’ so fun job of installing every piece of software on the planet. Joy. He’s opted to run Win98 instead of 2k and so I can’t make him a boot disk. This’ll be interesting.
In other randomness, I was able to get out and shoot some pictures today, but I need to shoot a lot more by Saturday. Ok, dinner and software time. Later.

Woot, my photo paper wasn’t a complete loss after all. I was able to salvage a good 75% of the box. Yah! That solves a minor problem for the time being. I still need a source of income, and quick. At this point I’m no longer picky. A job, a shitty job, a good job, a loan, winning the lotto, anything, just something at this point. Arg. I hate not having money. Ok, well, Color Class is over and I’m in the lab upstairs, a few minutes away from finding out what I missed and will have to make up. Hopefully not much. Actually, that reminds me, I’ve got to run back downstairs and get another assignment out of my locker. Later.

Ok, sorry, last thing… I want one of these. Anyone want to load me a few bucks?
Great, I’ve got a whopping $30 in my bank account and no credit card to get supplies with. Shit. Talk about lousy timing having my credit card stolen. Can’t criminals have better timing, damn them. Well, tomorrow I’m going to have to wing it with supplies I don’t have. This will be interesting. I’ve also got to shoot 3 rolls of slide film and develope them by Monday… also with the money I don’t have. Yah! Ok, I’m sick of being tired in the mornings for my 9am, so I’m going to go to bed now. Hopefully I won’t fuck up and ruin another box of paper. But, before I go:

Talk about a random, crappy day yesterday. Things seemed to be resolved though, at least for the moment. I got the tire patched, the car is running fine, Lauren came over with chicken salad and cake to make me feel better (I love her!) and I might be a Canadian citizen. That’s right, you heard me. After a reminder from my father as to my actual rights when it comes to nationality, it seems that I can legally be both a citizen of the US, with all rights and privileges, as well as a Canadian citizen.
It works like this. Since you (and I) were born in the US, we’re automatically a citizen. You’re also considered a US citizen if you were born to American parents over-seas (people on military bases for instance). Same goes for Canada. I was born in the US, making me a US citizen, but my mother is Canadian, hence I was born to Canadian parents on “foreign soil”. All I have to do is some paper work, and I become a Canadian citizen as well. And, quite frankly, now seems like a perfect time to do so. I know what you’re thinking, “wouldn’t I loose all my American rights/privileges?” Nope. Since I was still born here, I’m a US citizen for life, even retaining all the right and so forth if I leave and don’t come back until I’m 80, I’d still get things like Medicare for example. It’s called Duel Citizenship. Basically, my paranoid brain, with the help of my paranoid father, figures that if the proverbial “shit hits the fan”, I could make a dash to the boarder and just say that I’m a Canadian citizen, then I’m in, no questions asked.
Ok, enough talk of “shit hitting fans”, and on to lighter topics. Thanks to a conversation over on Tess’ page, I went looking for the Dunkin’ Donuts website. Not that it was hard to find. I do want those “diner mugs” they’ve got for sale. That would be awesome. And they’re only $5.99. Neat! At any rate, I was just using the “store locator” to see if there was any around here (besides the one I already knew about) and of course there isn’t. There is that one, but it’s really really sketchy and I don’t think I’d go there after sundown.
Ok, since I didn’t exactly get much sleep last night, I’m going to go to bed early. Night.
