10/09/2003 Archived Entry: "Free Mouse Pad! XD"

OMG, my anthro teacher so friggin' rulz! He, like, gave the class the topic of every single question on the test we're taking next Thursday! XD To top that off, it's an open note test! XD XD XD XD XD On top of that, I think I can wing it without studying a bit. Yeah, I'm happy. ^_^

Today, in oil painting, my teacher did a varnish demonstration. I was expecting more, but he just took some of the varnish on a big brush and just went over it quickly. ^_^; Come on, when the man says it's going to be a "demo," doesn't that sound a bit more involving? At least I got to learn some stuff about the chemistry of oils painting. Stuff about how natural saps are some of the nicest looking because of a high reflective index and all that crap. There's a lot of science that goes into oil paining! I honestly didn't realize that before going into it. Of course, I knew next to nothing about oil painting at that time, so that isn't saying very much. ^_^;;

Earlier today, Gamestop called me. Apparently, for those who pre-ordered FFXI, some limited-edition mouse pads arrived and they were distributing them. Well, needless to say, I just had to pick one up. XD I, like, don't even use a mouse (trackballs all the way, baby!), but hey, who can turn down a free, limited edition extra? XD XD XD The thing is kinda cheap and has a very generic image, but hey, it's free, so I can't complain.

For a project in my design class, I had to look through magazines to find solid color swatches. Being the nerd that I am, I picked up the Macworld magazine because there were no other tech mags. Not a huge Mac fan, but they are well-built machines and do some pretty impressive things. That's when I came upon an article about the new G5s. Oh freakin' man, them things sound so~ sweet. *drools* I'm envious of Mac owners. By having standardized machines, they are able to get sweet brand-new high-speed ports and standards. PC users don't usually get that. -_- Well, at least, on the plus side, PCs are cheaper. ^_^ Wouldn't mind owning a Mac too someday, but them price tags are a real defining factor.... Guess I'll only have Windows and/or Linux boxes anytime within the forseeable future....
