when i got home, i had a surprise from amazon (ok, not really a surprise seeing as i ordered it but the delivery date was a surprise), a rock band guitar!! i have been tirelessly hunting down the instruments so i can have a full set at my house plus some replacement guitars for jj's house since we have been doing some hard core rocking as of late. the guitar is a third party model and i noticed the buttons aren't as responsive as guitar hero guitars but it looks super sweet and all of the instruments are pretty hard to find now. still looking for another guitar, the drum set and a mic- all used or new doesn't matter- if you know of any leads. i've been losing all my ebay auctions for instruments (i haven't even bothered looking for rb1 &2 i figured i could find a used disc at game stop or somewhere and most people selling their instruments bundle it with the game) and have been wary to check out craigslist (not exactly comfortable meeting up with people i don't know) but it might be the only way, unless i buy all third party add ons (expensive). but anyway i have a rockband guitar!!! been playing some songs on rb3, fun fun. can't wait for finals to finish then i can play more.
i am also dying to play halo 4. didn't beat solo legendary yet so i have something to do over the winter break.
other xmas break plans:
- hike diamond head with my cousin (she is visiting from san jose for a week and staying at my house)
- spending time with le boyfriend (he hate my guts because of our reverse work schedule)
- bikeventure to see the city lights
- campy-genta research (if we don't get kicked out of our lab. this is still undecided.)
- pick up my comic books (a whole month of comics to retrieve, ahhhhh)
- bake christmas cakes and deliver them
looks like i'm working this christmas. am slightly dissapoint. but i had the last two christmases off so i don't really mind.

- You know those delicatessens that name sandwiches after famous people? What would be the ingredients of the sandwich named after you?
molasses rye bread, mustard (yellow or granulated), swiss cheese, tomato, crispy bacon, spinach, corned beef. pickle and olive on the side. with BAKED black pepper kettle chips (i swear, the best chips in the world and they are always sold out!!!!!! i bought a case of it from whole foods the last time they had it and now they are all out again) and an ice cold coca cola or creme soda.
who wants to eat at my future restaurant? ;D
- What’s your favorite part of staying in a hotel?
COMING BACK AFTER A LONG DAY AND NOT SEEING ALL OF MY JUNK. i really need to clean house. clean house and throw everything out.
- What was the last book you read, and how was it?
i've recently reread Richard Feynman's autobiography and The Number Devil. two of my all time favorites, both involving math (wtf). last first-time read was The Stand which i finished in august.
- What’s something super-unhealthy you’ve recently eaten?
beef jerky. ughhh, it's so full of salt but when you're hungry, sometimes a candy bar doesn't cut it.
funny side note: today i was studying with a friend and the lab manager came outside and saw us. she gave us some encouraging remarks and said good luck and recommended we not take too much caffeine and get a snack before our final; specifically, carbs. she said it's a nice slow energy and not a sugar rush. she left and i turned to my friend who said, "let's go get a snack, what kind of carbs should we get". at that point i knew i had gone off the deep end because when she asked me that question the first thing that popped in my head was POTATO. bwahahahaa... no, not french fries. just. a potato. it's a good thing i didn't say my thoughts out loud. :/ why can't i think of something practical like crackers? or out of all the uncooked produce you could eat, why not a banana? LOL. a POTATO.
- What do you do with all those Christmas cards with photos of friends and their kids?
sadly, i don't get many christmas cards. and the family photo ones usually go into the trash on january 2. BUT @XYNETHA HAS THE MOST ADORABLE CHRISTMAS FAMILY PHOTO CARD EVERRRRR this year and i don't think i can throw it out! /(* U*)/ stormy is so tiny cute and everyone looks so happy! THANKYOUUUU @XYNETHA!! instead of on my fridge it's pinned to my wall next to the drawing @valdezign sent me last christmas.
ok back to studying. :(
after several years, i updated the music in my music box (see left sidebar). enjoy the todor k. and emily haines! if you like the music, please support the artists and purchase the song on band camp (there's a link near the play button) only a few cents to own a masterpiece. :)
one day i will make a real rotating playlist. when i stop being lazy and can look up some code.
