Ok, this cold is officially trying to kill me. I hate not being able to breathe, and it seems that I keep trying to loose my voice as well. Not having a voice makes it really hard to get class participation points!
We broke up into groups this morning in Operational Behavior. Our group didn’t seem to interested in doing much, so as soon as we got the required stuff done, it was head out, see you later.
In Operations Management, we all learned a very important life lesson: Apparently pretty much all milk is created equal brand-wise. Our professor used to work at a dairy and he said that they get milk from so many different places that there is no substantial difference between any of the dairies, except for Altadena. According to him, Altadena only takes milk from their cows (or cows somehow under their control) that are basically more organic than the rest of the bunch. The moral of the story: Buy whatever is cheapest, unless you want the Altadena organic milk.
We had a quiz in Statistics which I know I didn’t do so well on. After I finished the test, I started second guessing myself and somehow convinced myself that I should have used the z table instead of the t table. Fortunately, I only got about half of my answers changed before time ran out. Moral of this story: Don’t second guess yourself!
I decided to venture off campus for lunch today. I almost convinced myself to give Carl’s Jr. a try, but Fudds was just calling my name, and I had $5 in Fudd Bucks to use before the end of the month. (I still have one card left.) My burger was a little overcooked, but other than that everything was great. I really enjoyed by cream cheese brownie. I made it back to campus with plenty of time to spare, but I still couldn’t find a spot. After going through all the lots, I went back to my normal spot and waited for class to get out. Surprisingly, I was even able to make it to class close enough to not consider myself late.
Here, I saved you a piece of my brownie:
Now it is time for my stupid question of the day. Why is it than whenever you get out of a lane, behind a car, to pass them, they suddenly decide it is time to speed up? Then, as soon as you get back in line behind them, they slow back down. What’s up with that? I had this BMW that I had been following for miles that I finally decided it was time to pass around Murrieta, but as soon as I moved to the #2 lane, he sped up (at least 80) so that I couldn’t get around him. I moved back to the #1 lane and he slowed back down to 70! I tried again, and got the same treatment. Finally I decided I wasn’t going to stand for that, and I decided to put my engine to good use. Pedal to the medal and a quick trip to the #3 lane and then back again to the #1 lane and he was toast.
I got off at Mission Road in Fallbrook and found a long line of cars waiting to turn. By this time I was really getting fed up with traffic, so I decided I’d take Live Oak Park to Reche. Well, there was a Jaguar in line in front of me to turn. Let’s just say that I tried to keep up, but it just wasn’t a fair race… Ryan: I don’t know how you handle driving to LA as often as you do. I don’t think I could take it!
I watched episode 8 of 24 tonight, the one where the terrorists try to set off the gas in a mall. It was good, but I think it is time to stop watching and wait for the DVDs. I can tell that I’m loosing interest with the long delays between episodes. There was a scene which I thought looked like Pasadena, but when I called Susan in for further inspection, she thought she recognized it from downtown. Either way, it looked familiar.
After 24, I switched over to an episode of Roswell (Season 1, Episode 10). The show seems to be getting a little weird on me now, but I’ll keep watching to see where it take me. I was thinking while watching it that it is interesting how they seem to keep relating the aliens to how everyone feels different. I am interested to see where the story-line eventually takes us.
