i don’t understand people
midterms are coming up and i feel sooo uninspired to do anything… arrg..
i found new some “cool” signs last nite
Over a gynecologist’s office: “Dr. Jones, at your cervix.”
On a Plumber’s truck: “We repair what your husband fixed.”
At a dry cleaners: “Drop your pants here.”
On the trucks of a local plumbing company in NE Pennsylvania: “Don’t sleep with a drip. Call your plumber.”
Pizza shop slogan: “7 days without pizza makes one weak.”
Outside a muffler shop: “No appointment necessary. We hear you coming.”
In a veterinarian’s waiting room: “Be back in 5 minutes. Sit! Stay!”
Door of a plastic surgeon’s office: “Hello. Can we pick your nose?”
On an electrician’s truck: “Let us remove your shorts.”
In a non-smoking area: “If we see smoke, we will assume you are on fire and take appropriate action.”
At an optometrist’s office: “If you don’t see what you’re looking for, you’ve come to the right place.”
In the front yard of a funeral home: “Drive carefully. We’ll wait.”
i hate telemarketers with a passion.. all of them are so dumb and they always call when you are the busiest.
this will be a standard conversation i’d have with a telemarketer of any sort:
telemarketer: “is ____ there?”
telemarketer: “is your mom there?”
me: “no, i live by myself.” – feeling rather irritated
telemarketer: “oh, well, i think you can help me out here then, i’m the blah blah for blah blah company, how are you doing today?”
if the telemarketer is looking for me, the conversation will be the same except it skips the first two lines.
don’t they ever get more creative and make you less irritated? NEVER! i detest telemarketers; i don’t understand why such occupation exists. if i ever find myself stuck with such a job for life, i’d definitely shoot myself!
UI has continued its license agreement with microsoft. I got my student licensed win xp pro for $7.95 and my frontpage 2002 for $4.95 today. i got the xp for andy’s dad. i realized that they offered both frontpage 2000 and frontpage 2002, except 2002 is a dollar cheaper than 2000.. weird? i asked the cashier why, she said she had no idea. so i got frontpage 2002 because i like the “make the page xml-compliant” button on it. they have frontpage 2002 installed in our computer lab, with a single button, frontpage will do the little fixes such as change <br> to <br /> to make your page xml-compliant. that doesn’t mean it will correct everything but i think i will enjoy it a lot
plug lele’s new chicken domain, i mean personal.. =P
to kat: i got your letter thank you. i’m not depressed. i’m just too busy to get online.
if your cookie is set, click here. it features my second vector art. not too good but better than my first one. i notice it doesn’t look as good on opera but at least i tried.
i downloaded opera last nite so i can check my designs under more browsers. so now i check it under netscape 4.7 (if necessary), IE 5&6, mozilla, and opera.
HAPPY 21th BIRTHDAY TO LEAH!!!
i just read this and realized a very sad story happened around me a while ago. altho i won the award, i never thought the award was real. this graduate student applied for the award after he saw it on my website and also won. obviously he made a much bigger deal out of it. after he referred the web design job i have now to me, my clients were telling me how sad they were that they couldn’t work with the graduate student because the graduate student was so good and he even won an award (btw, he made this). this is not to dis my clients or the graduate student. i just feel so sad that a total scam website could even influence a person getting a JOB!!! i seriously think that site needs to be removed from the internet!
ray of light is putting up a beta. i absolutely adore the flash work and i’ve been waiting for a long time. being only 5 years older than me, his talents are.. well.. no words can describe. i’m happy to see his beta and of course it didn’t disappoint me at all.
i’m working on a new theme – everything’s done except i want to preview it on opera before i release it.
please spread the word and try to find this sick child abuser!
believe it or not the sound “pikachu” actually means “butt ball” in mandarin chinese. ask anyone who speaks mandarin. when i mentioned this to andy two years ago, he was thrilled thus “butt” was the first mandarin word he ever learned. he past this insight to his brother as well. since then “butt” in mandarin has been used in his daily conversation. of course it has also become an inside joke.
the first drop of rain since the beginning of school came down around 1:30pm today. i was lucky because it was time for me to work at the computer lab. i didn’t get wet at all. the rain was pretty much done by the time classes were over for me and as i walked toward the bus stop, the most dreadful thing happened — one big drop of rain fell right on my forehead as when i walked under a tree. i swear this has to happen EVERY TIME i do not get wet in rain. either from a tree, a roof or a window, the rain somehow always finds its own way to reach me. i truly detest that!
it’s final I’m getting a web design project at school for the social work department. the design sounds easy. just give you an idea how much those people know about the webpage. they asked me to please do not lock the pages (btw, this is pure html). they wanted it so other people may edit the webpages later. i was like.. sure…
i’m getting $12/hour and it sounds like 80 hours is a good time for them hehe…
