Where is my jetpack?

There is a new book out called "Where is my Jetpack?" that talks about the future and all the gadgets we were promised, but aren't here.

I heard the author speak the other day and it did amuse me and how far we've come yet how lacking our gadgets and technology is in some areas.

One gadget that we bought that i love is the Roomba. Now its not the whole Rosie the robot house cleaning maid we saw a child on the Jetsons, but its a great little device. It vacuums while we are away, and who wouldn't love that? If you have dogs, i highly recommend it. And while its not perfect, i think its important to be building these devices and to be researching new technologies. To that same effect, we just bought a Prius. Yes we are THOSE people now, but no i'm not moving to S.F. And again, while its not perfect its a step in a better direction, and its a step worth taking.

so that said, has a roomba on sale. Its just fun to watch this thing work.

we need to be working toward the future. I want my jetback, and a hover board!

hide and seek

a couple months ago ben purchased a 'universal remote' - which is supposed to control all the stuff in our entertainment unit - and as always i rebelled.. i was very good with the old remotes.. and didn't want to learn anything new.. ben put up with it for quite a while.. until this week.. finally.. he hid my old remotes.. now he gives me no choice.. i must learn a new remote system.. i am not happy..
here is part of an email i got from my school:
The school's Police and the FBI are questioning an individual in
connection with a threat that was made... the school may be targeted for
violent acts similar to what occurred at Virginia Tech on Monday. The
threat was for Thursday, April 19. Investigation conducted to date by
Campus Police and the FBI indicates that the threat was a hoax.

....what am i supposed to do with this?

Temet Nosce

Know thyself.

I think its important to know who you are. Know what you are good, at and almost more importantly know what you are not good at.

i am not a boat person. I should know i'm not a boat person. The problem is i forget. I got on a boat trip once every two years and have a horrible time and then proceed to forget how bad it was and want to go on another boat trip.

I am not a boat person. That is my new motto. I don't do boats. I will never sail around the world. I'm just not that guy. And its ok. I need to know that, and more importantly remember that.

I am still dizzy...

anger management

this is a bad week.. and it's only tuesday..
today thanks to nerissa, i realized that the paper i thought was due next friday, is actually due this friday.. this is a huge problem, because this paper is like 30 pages long, and a major pain... it wouldn't be so bad if i didn't have a test this thursday, which only gives me two small afternoons to do this paper, and tomorrow afternoon to study for this test... and i have a major test next tuesday - which i have no time to study for.. because some where this weekend i have to fit in easter.. actually easter might be canceled this year..
but.. i do have to say.. ben has been great.. he came home, brought me dr. pepper, a cadbury egg, made me dinner.. and then.. just as i was losing it, yelling at the printer.. he busted out some ben and jerrys.. what a good guy..
i just can't wait for this all to be over.. i have no idea what it's like to get home from an 8 hour day, and be done.. as it is now.. i get home from 8 hours of school, and i have another 6 hours of homework to do..
