Pansy Tanks!

This is what I did at work today. Thought I would share.

Ten Minute Tank

Mac Attack!

That is my Pansy Tank Army attacking Lindley Hall 026 and enforcing the Ten Minute policy! 🙂

Ok, now to tell what’s been happening to me lately.

Not that much has been happening, really. Group project hell is almost complete and that’s possibly the highlight of the recent time period. Other than that, things have been pretty normal.

Erin and I went to see Walk the Line the other night, and it was amazing. I was skeptical at first, but as the movie went on, I was more and more engrossed. Joaquin Phoenix and Reese Witherspoon really brought Johnny Cash and June Carter back to life in this film. I give it [rate 4.5]. Everyone must go see this film.

My Information Systems Security group did our security audit of Gentry Group last Sunday. It went well. There were some things we found that made us scratch our heads and wonder “what were they thinking?”, but I can’t really go into that here, mostly because it’s not right and also because they trusted us to look for flaws in their security. It was definitely a good experience.

I’m sick.

There, I said it. It’s true. I hate being sick, but I am. I’ve got some strange mucus growing on the inside of my trachea that I keep coughing up. When I wake up in the morning, I cough for a good 45 minutes so I can breathe quasi-normally. My body also aches, and I’ve been suffering from headaches on and off. It’s just great that the week before finals, I get sick.

I will be here over winter break working and trying to find another place of employment for next semester. I think in the interim, I’m going to see if I can get a job with TIS for break. It’s spring book rush time and I’m sure they could use some help plus I’m only working about 30 hours over break for STC, so an extra job would be nice.

It’s snowing today… a lot. I went out the other day and bought bags of pea gravel to put in the bed of my truck. I think I added about 500lbs. to the weight of the bed of my truck over the wheels. I’m definitely not going to drive for a couple days in hopes that the idiots who have never driven in snow are off the roads. I know it’s wishful thinking, but I really hate the first snow… and frankly every snow because people down here don’t know how to drive in it. We’re scheduled to get 4 to 8 inches by tomorrow. Pretty as it may be, it’s going to cause inconveniences.

I think that’s really about all that’s been going on in my life lately. If you want to hang out over break, let me know. I’m pretty much free almost all of it.

  1. dude… you listen to the trans-siberian orchestra? i just started looking at them with aaron.

    my impression? WEIRD. their bios make them sound pretty impressive, yet i’ve never heard of ANY of them.

    i’ve also never heard the music, but i’m convinced that it’s new-agey, yanni type stuff.

    and why do they only make christmas albums?

  2. I’m into them mostly because in High School, whenever we would go to movies around Christmas time, they would play the “newest track” from their albums in the pre-movie music. I like them because they are new-agey and they give a different take on classic Christmas tunes. Definitely my kind of thing.

  3. Are you aware that the box for “URL” in your comments actually says “URI”?

    And also, I think we should get some posterboard and make a giant tank… and aim it at Tim’s house.

  4. Yes, I am aware it says URI. URI stands for Universal Resource Identifier. It’s the “new” way to say Universal Resource Locator (URL). Whatever.

    And yes, we should aim a giant tank at Tim’s house. Maybe we can make it out of something that can withstand the snow and leave it out front 🙂
