I found a pair of gloves just like I was looking for in Chinatown yesterday for $3CDN! I think I scared the poor little Chinese guy when I yelled that I'd been looking for them for six months and finally found them! (I don't think he spoke much English... maybe he thought I was mad at him.) I bought three pairs so that I'll have gloves at least three winters. Psy gave me money for some work I did for a website. I also bought a bottle of this stuff called "Inca Cola" (it tastes like those cream-soda DumDum suckers) and some butter tarts from a bakery in the Kengsington market. I walked around for like five hours yesterday while he was in classes.

I got searched at the airport on the way up here; pretty good since it was an international flight. I took my hat off and put it through the x-ray, and I had my wooden box of art supplies and backpack too. Apparently something on me set off the metal detector and I ended up being stripped down in front of two army guys until I was just wearing my shirt and jeans. Then this nervous-looking Indian guy padded me down. I kind of liked it. ;) The flight was good, though, and I think I want to fly Air Canada from now on because they play movies even on short flights and have better food. (That, and the head stewardess had an accent.)

We're leaving tonight on a train for Quebec. (Sorry, I don't know how to make the accent over the e in Linux.) I bought some boursin yesterday, but it's a bit stronger than I remembered it... not bad, though! I hope you are having fun. I'm a bit tired from not getting any sleep at night. :D.

(Mmmm.. there's a cable modem here, too. :)

I think the main difference is that everyone who acts like an asshole here is doing it on purpose... From what I can tell most k5ers don't conciously know they're incredible jerks. :P

But I am on vacation and I don't care anyway. So nyeh. :P

Wow, here's your chance to score on the only female on the weblog! Quick, it's a woman, start posting sappy nonsence. (Alternatively, you could start learning how to flirt. Unless you're a g**k, of course, in which case your best bet is to become a homosexual.)

Peace and much love...

...who has constant daily contact with many, many Jesuits -- it's a Jesuit school, ok? -- I can vouch for this. All Jesuits are unbelievably g**ky. They are the biggest g**ks you ever saw, bar none. Far, far bigger dweebs than any puny ESR or RMS, let me assure you. We're talking bad haircuts, sad beards, pants too short, gut over the belt, body odor, you name it, they got it. God.

You know who is even more of a g**k than a Jesuit though? A Jesuit math/computer-science professor. Yeah. Wrap your mind around that one.

You know what else? The Jesuits all have funny shaped heads. I mean it. They all have like these really large mellons, and they are asymmetrical. Don't believe me? Here's one example: example. See? Here's another example: another example. What is up with that? Or that.You know, HP Love-Craft wrote a story about this town called Inhismouth, where everbody had funny shaped heads, and also a fishy smell. Turns out they weren't really human after all. Think about it.

Sometimes you sit in class while your Jesuit professor is lecturing, and you thing: man, they must wank a lot. I mean, they have to, you know?

Look, if you start deleting my posts, that means you lose. My opinions aren't any worse that yours, and if you start to randomly delete discussions, this weblog ends up no better than Slashdot. Which ultimately means that you fail in your mission statement. Are my comments so "controversial" that your site can't handle them? I don't believe that for a second. Is that any way for an "adult" to behave -- deleting posts just because your closed mind disagrees with them? Does the word "groupthink" mean anything to you? In the end, you can do whatever you wish; just remember that ultimately you'll end up hurting only yourself.

P.S. What exactly is wrong with anger as a way of stylistic expression? I don't much like free verse, that doesn't mean I burn Whitman's books.

Peace and much love...

There is nothing controversial about anything you write, it's all quite annoying no matter how you look at it.

THere is nothing wrong with anger either, but don't personally attack me for no reason, or I will delete your posts. Got it?

OK, I'm sorry. I didn't know you were so touchy -- there wasn't even a hint of me trying to insult you. The original post was just some sarcasm on the inept attempts of g**ks to flirt with females[1]. I have nothing against you personally, I don't know you, and I have no reason to persecute on weblogs. Let's call a peace treaty, OK?

Do you realise that your "you guys are so lame" act could be construed as a different sort of attempt to impress women on weblogs. Not that you'd be doing anything that lame, of course. Not even by accident.

It is our willingness to delete the crap from this site that makes it so superior to slashdot.

Hey Jin! How are you. I'm ok. Today I read a book called Northern Lights by Philip Pullman. It was good. What are you wearing? I'm wearing green trousers and a blue jumper. Are you a goth? I heard that you were a goth. I like goths, and fluffy kittens. Hmm...kittens - they're nice.

My friend has six baby cats and last time I went to his house because he was gonna fix my computer I got to pet them all! They were really warm and had these big eyes and ears. Very cute! :)

My cat refuses to be normal and sleep curled up, and instead sleeps lying on his back, fuzzy gut and all four folded legs facing up. If you rub his belly he looks at you as if to say "what? I'm sleeping on my back - have you got a problem with that?"

He also makes us open the door for him by staring at it.

if you like being patted down by Indians then perhaps I should tell you that I am one, too (well, technically native american, but some might still consider me an Injun). so how about it? :)

The way you make an é in HTML under Linux is just like making the é in HTML under any other OS - you type é. Using the character code directly is very much non-standard and non-portable.

Okay, Scoop converted the & in the é in my subject line to the literal one, and then when I did type it as a literal, it got converted to an entity. Crappy.
