QC and Sonic

QC mentioned Sonic today! Faye has excellent taste and should clearly pick up a strawberry limeade for me while she’s there.

Run Down and Questionable Content

Life’s pretty crazy and hectic right now. It seems like there are no ends to the projects to be done, the homework assignments to finish, and the students to tutor. If I spend any time doing something that doesn’t relate to classwork, research, tutoring, or applying to grad school, I tend to feel guilty, which is not a good place to for me to be mentally and emotionally, but there you go. I’m trying to do things for myself at the same time. Unfortunately, the bowling trip with friends this weekend has had some lasting negative effects. I started the first game with a ball that was probably about six pounds too heavy for me, and that, along with fencing, has aggravated my tendonitis to levels approaching freshman year, when I actually had to start physical therapy and have friends come to class to take notes for me. Needless to say, this is not good. I could really use a few days for nothing but rest…

I’ll leave off with the whining; no one wants to hear it, myself included. Instead, let me direct you all to Questionable Content, a web comic to which my suitemates have addicted me. Reportedly, it’s an indie music comic, but, in all honesty, you don’t have to be an indie music person to enjoy it. (If you needed to be, my suitemates wouldn’t be reading it. I think I’m probably the person that’s closest to being “indie” in the apartment, which really says a lot.) Pintsize, the main character’s AnthroPC, is a particular delight, although Faye gets full awesome votes from me, too, for that rapier wit. When I read through the archives this weekend, I marked some of my favorites.

We’re building a hovercraft this weekend. Hopefully, I’ll have some nice pictures of that later. Better yet, pictures of the hovercraft working.
