    @MagicSword!: That's wonderful! When something like that happens, it brings hope that things could actually get better. I know I could use an extra dose of hope...

    @ Rudi: That's one beautiful cat.

    This Easter has been both good and bad. Good, because last night me and a few of my friends had a big feast at my place. Nothing beats having good company over for dinner and some drinks.

    The bad comes into play with my studies. I'm desperately trying to finish my BA thesis whilst working on four smaller essays, of which one is in my native tongue. I thought I'd have no problems with writing a decent essay in my own mother language (Finnish), but was I wrong! Then again, I've been working in English exclusively for the past three years, so that might explain why I'm all of a sudden at a loss when it comes to writing things in Finnish. Still, it stings and hurts, because I never thought I'd be in a position where I can't express myself freely in my own language. So I'm sitting here, staring at a blank page and wondering, how to start. It's a bitter feeling, considering how eloquent I used to be, and how little I can say right now.

    In other news, I got a job for the summer. It's a nice office job at the directory assistance, in a really beautiful building at a lovely part of the city, and with a boss with whom I get along. So that's good.

    Otherwise, I'm just angsting over the load of work I need to do before summer. Somedays I really hate my workaholic tendencies.

    I've got a big boatload of nothing. Break ends this evening and I have so much studying to do that it's slightly ludicrous.

    There's a Monday Night Open Mic happening over at my Livejournal this evening.

    No picture this week either; can't find my camera.

    @clytemnestras_wrath - love the pics, looks like much fun!
    @all - dude. Sun's up where I am, and everything does look better by daylight. Except my room. But we can ignore that :)

    Eh, Monday Morning, Sunday Night. Same thing.

    I'm about to give the "Take this job and shove it" speech in about an hour.

    For anyone who read my rant last night. I now have nice anti-inflammatory meds which should get the asthma under control. Yay for being able to breath again soon.

    It's good that this is open because I get to add an addendum to the Easter story that's pretty hilarious. One of the guests was my good friend Jodi--you need to know what she looks like:

    So she comes in, and my Aunt--the one with the autistic kids--is sitting on the couch. Jodi says "Happy Easter!!", and my aunt replies "Thank you, did you celebrate Passover?"

    @Tedcroland - I just have to say... LOL for your Aunt. I needed that laugh.

    There's a strong chance your Aunt might be my Dad's g/f. It always makes for interesting holiday dinners.

    @Andre. Hey man that Vista hard drive crap drove me crazy too, Vista has this retarded extra restore point system, whereby it constantly makes extra copies of your essential files whenever something big happens to your computer. But then it keeps EVERY RESTORE POINT IT MAKES, taking up more and more of your hard disk, and this doesn't show up anywhere. Torrents trigger it like crazy too. You can easily clear the restore point cache, go to Control Panel/System and Maintenance/Performance Information and Tools/Open Disc Cleanup then More Options tab, then clean up system restore and shadow copies. You should get a whole heap of hard drive back. There's a way to turn the whole process off, but I can't remember how I did it, and I just hit that clean up button every couple of days for a while. Hope that helps.

    Holy shit, I did that and FOURTEEN FUCKING GIGABYTES showed up out of NOWHERE. From how far up their arses the developers pulled out this restore point system idea? Magic Sword, thank you immensely, man.

    Solve all your Vista problems in one fell swoop - install XP.

    As hard as that may be to believe, that was my only serious problem with Vista. The rest either works well or it's a minor problem.

    Better solution to your Vista problems - buy a Mac or install Linux.

    No, wait. I'm smarter than to bring that shit into any discussion.

    Even in my sleep-deprived state I know baiting when I see it. =D
