brief eulogy for my car, and how getting an A is like porn spam, among other things

My car is dead. Purchased brand new on December 12th, 1989. Sold to a junkyard on September 12th, 2002. 161,002 miles on the odometer.

You look at this old car, you think it's junk, you think it's shit? Well I think you're shit!

I loved that car.

In other news, I'm still alive. But I am back in college and Final Fantasy X has been taking up all my spare time.

Looks like I took up right where I left off, hmm?

This Iraq thing is weirding me out. Why Iraq, why now? Are you intentionally trying to get the whole world, especially the Arabs, even more pissed off at us than they already are? Just because we're king of the hill doesn't mean we need to go out of our way to give people reasons to try and push us off. I just don't understand why it's necessary, and it bothers me that the executive branch doesn't seem to care what I or anyone else understands about the situation. Though I have to agree with something mimi smartypants once said. I'm not going to bother trying to find the exact entry and quote, but it was something along the lines of- "Do we really think Saddam Hussein is going to stop producing biological and chemical weapons because we asked him to? Do we really think he's going to stop brutalizing the populace of Iraq because it's the right thing to do?"

Did I tell you I'm taking a French class again, for the first time since Winter 2000 (when I started writing this diary thing, incidentally)?

What is the best thing to do right before going to bed? Look at the sky? Read? Listen to music? Play music? Study kanji?

Why is there not enough time for all that I want to do?


I dropped modern physics in favor of Persian music. That's more of a reflection of the relative time commitments of the two classes than my interest in the respective topics. The professor is a touch flaky, but as long as he's handing out As like porn spam I don't really care.

I wish I understood Islam and its culture better. I wish they understood us better.

Enough! Enough!

one way is rome and the other way is mecca,
