12:37 am:  Huh, so I did not look at old posts before this past one, I just had the urge to see what's been going on on this end of things. Turns out that that last message isn't as uncommon as it could've been.
But, seriously, I hope you're all right at worst. I'm going back to studying for a $100 test that I only want to take once.  Go Bears.

12:37 am: *waves*
I hope you're well!

I hope you're okay at worst, wonderful at best.

09:34 pm: I swear I'll have an actual post sometime soon.
However, until then, I would like something free.

Take care!

10:01 pm: Studying would be so much easier if I had nothing else to do.
Take care of yourselves!

08:11 pm: It's time for my inconsistent update!
 It's amazing how much weather can influence a mood. And how wonderful wearing shorts can be.
I don't think I'll make a good engineer, but I'll probably be a decent person.
Both of these past weekends, I was near the ocean, standing on or near a sea cliff. This past Saturday, I even got to get my feet wet. I do dearly love the ocean.
I love California (the state and the university). There aren't many places like it.
I love it despite the fact that we've had two earthquakes in the past three weeks or so (though neither was dangerously strong).
Although I love both those things, and quite a few others, I'm in love with a particular girl who loves me. That just makes things all the more pleasant (I don't mean that that everyone needs to be loved by others--I mean that it's nice to have something in my life that at one point I expected never to have (Not that I was a terribly depressed boy. Just resigned)).
I am doing well, and things could easily be worse. I hope you're all fairly well and enjoying life to the extent or more than you ought to be.
Hopefully school and life are treating you well and the wonder in it is more apparent than it isn't.

Enjoy yourselves and music!


("...and send her down to Menlo just to coach the Stanford team. But if I had a little boy, I'd dress him all in blue, and he'd yell, "To hell with Stanford," like his daddy used to do!")

05:43 pm: Revision:
So, these links should work, plus there's one more song from the wonderful Tom Lehrer (whose "The Element Song" one must definitely hear if one's heard "Modern Major General" from Gilbert and Sullivan's "The Pirates of Penzance" (which is one of the few productions I need to see at some point)).
Also of note, if any of you are familiar with "Modern Major General" and was a fan of the show Reboot, I highly suggest you watch what's here.

Christmas in the Stars - What Can You Get a Wookie for Christmas
"Bog Down in the Valley"
The Pogues and Kristy MacColl - Fairytale of New York
Coldplay's "The Scientist" and Sum 41's "Pieces" (Mashup)
Tom Lehrer - Bright College Days

And, I realized the question I asked at the end was an odd one, but this was what was intended:
The person: A total stranger, as average as a stranger could be. The kind of person you might pass a second time (though the chances of that happening aren't nearly as good as having that passing consist of nothing more than an observation). I think that gets the point across (though it probably does). Oh well! It really doesn't matter, I was just wondering.
And, the words/terminology'd be along the lines of "Excuse me, you look really pretty today."
..And no, I never actually said that to a stranger.

I think that The Blues Brothers is my favorite "musical," despite my never having seen it in its entirety. Also of note, I think everyone who thinks I am capable of making decent judgments should see Love Actually in its entirety.

Hope you're well, but if you aren't, I hope it's not anything long-lasting. If it is, you have my regards (for whatever they're worth).
However, whether you are or aren't, take care. Of yourself and those around you.

Also: Two more views from the Big C, this time taken by me. First. Second.

03:19 am: So it's after 2 AM...
...and I'm playing a game of Freecell.
...and I'm taking over Shane MacGowan's part in "Fairytale of New York" (which is by far the most enjoyable Christmas song I've heard. I definitely recommend it to anyone who...is anyone. And even to people who aren't).
...and the the next song on my playlist is "What Can You Get A Wookiee For Christmas (When He Already Owns A Comb)?" Now, honestly, this is the most unreasonable song I have ever heard. Is it really reasonable to offer "love and understanding" to a Wookie for Christmas? In the movies it's shown that they don't like losing, and I, for one, am willing to make the jump and say that a Wookie wouldn't accept that kind of present for any holiday. Also of note, as warmhearted as Chewbacca may be, he's still a smuggler, and as such, I would expect him to want something more tangible in a present. (Most important note: Would Wookies even celebrate Christmas? I think the entire song hinges on the answer to this question. Honestly.)
...and I think The Blues Brothers is an amazing film. Probably the best thing to come out of Saturday Night Live.
...and I'm tired of seeing all these Girls Gone Wild commercials during the breaks. Honestly. If I hear that girl say It's my first time... one more time, ..I'm going to change the channel? Or just stop watching the movie.
...and I was feeling glorious because I managed to write the code for my computer science class in a very simple way (when I expected it to be otherwise). Even though all this means now is that I'm caught up. Which means that I have homework to do. Huzzah! (Basically, I'm back in Berkeley early for summer school (taking an introductory computer science course (which I didn't have to take, but not only did I want to, I would have to retake at some point because of my lazy buminess)).
...and I am still filled with wonder from hearing a bunch of drunks at the Big C singing "Bog Down in the Valley," a song I never expected to hear performed live, by drunks from Ireland. The song is similar to "The Green Grass (Grows All Around)" or whatever the proper title for that song is. (Honestly, it's amazing what music can do to me. I was having a terrible day last semester (it was Finals Week) and my roommate's playlist started playing a Sum 41 song (Pieces) and as I heard it, I realized it was structured the same as Coldplay's "The Scientist." ..Exactly the same. And just realizing it made me feel wonderful. ..Which is incredibly lame. Just as realizing John Mayer's contribution in Common's "Go" is the background "go." I'll return to this topic. Later. Possibly.) This is another view of the Big C. But, why was I there? This is the view though in person it's amazing (particularly on a clear day) (Visible in the photo is University Avenue (the bright street on the right), the Campanile (the clocktower) ...and that's it). Basically, although I was around four miles from the nearest fireworks show, I could see three going on from on the hill. And that was a new, enjoyable experience.
...and it is now after four, and I don't think I'm going to be working on my homework anytime soon. Even though I don't feel tired in the slightest. Huzzah, huzzah, huzzah.

But, that is all for now, but I offer two things:
1) For girls: How odd would it be if a guy walked up to you, told you you looked particularly attractive one day, and just walked away? I've been wondering about that for a while, just how a girl would take that.
2) I figure since I have the space to, I offer some of the songs I've mentioned:
Christmas in the Stars - What Can You Get a Wookie for Christmas
"Bog Down in the Valley"
The Pogues and Kristy MacColl - Fairytale of New York
Coldplay's "The Scientist" and Sum 41's "Pieces" (Mashup)

Have fun.
