God... Robarts is a terrible, depressing place... I can't believe people can spend so much time there. Its really really horrible. In fact I'm reexperiencing my hatdred for that place right now. Maybe I hated the place so much that I didn't notice any desirable sorts of women there, unless you desire 'depressed girls from burlington wearing pink and white sweatsuits with pony tails and a baseball cap', or 'unconscious asian exchange students', or 'Get out of my way I've been doing the same halfbaked masters program since the mid 70's women'.

Now, across the street at the AC was another thing all together.

I took a masters level course as a 4th year in campaign theory with 6 girls. One of them would later admit that she fell for me because of my knowledge of gerrymandered congressional districts.

How's DEM apples.

edit: Shiz I think we need to do a little field research so we can get a grasp of the tastes in the group, then Mystery Method FTW!

Art history classes are the worst! Avoid them! Anyways, all you see is the back of girls heads. The photography classes on the other hand... Its always a funny conversation when you are trying to assure them they will never go up on the internet (only the contact sheet)

Do you have 1 or 2 years left Rob?

Oh crap I just realized I have my graduation in november... THATS gonna be fun. Nothing like watching a few thousand people you have never met shake some guy's hand. I think since my parents aren't going to be there theres no point in going. I guess I'll consider it skipped. Hooray for school pride!

mmm.. park pcs-4.. chock full of clampy goodness.

I couldn't put it together until I visited our friend, Canadian Tire (where I ran into our other friend, Cavernmech) for a real socket set. I'm also totally amazed at how many bits and pieces are in the one I bought. 241 bits and/or pieces to be exact. It's nice to see a bill that says "(SAVED $200.00)".

I totally pwned all the deals this week.

2 including this one. Pfft our school loyalty wise is close to zero. Besides having my name hopefully on a 40k piece of paper I will have absolutely no affiliation with this ****ty school.

So I had my closest call ever today w/ some ped who decided to look RIGHT and then step off a curb. I think I could have shrugged my shoulder and broken his nose on the way by. It was such a sketch situation as well, because once I saw him start to move (5-10' away from me) there was no way I was stopping in time, so I actually tried to speed up and just cut in front of him in time. Didn't say a word, just blew by him and kept going. I didn't hear anything from him either except his shoe dragging to a stop as I went by, which is probably a good thing, otherwise it would have ended up in my rear wheel.

Oh well.

Edit: Wee, Halloween C.M. tomorrow! That should be good times. Anyone showing up wearing something entertaining?

Phwww, started back this year at 33, and started teaching as well. Double whammy. It is great though to have all these teachers at Danforth ask me why I am back at school. Usaully starts with one them asking what m ymasters is in (no masters says I), then honours ( 0 for 2) then confusion. Love the faces when I tell them I have no degree and get paid the same as them, well I let them figure this part out as it would be too cruel to let them know, without 4 years plus one more at teachers college.

It is good to be me.

Oh yeah, I almost scratched the limo of the Swedish king and queen today! They had 4 big coach buses blocking off a chunk of front st in front of the royal york (maybe for security? it just could have been stupidity too), so I hopped the curb onto the sidewalk and jumped down squeezing between some chauffeurs and a limo with a little swedish flag flapping on the front. I didn't think much of it, but I just saw a news clip talking about the swedish king and queen being in Toronto, and lo and behold, same car! There were also about 20 police and OPP motorcycles lined up outside. I actually assumed it was some classy cop convention, but I guess its just how we treat foreign royalty.

I will have a very silly costume for tomorrow. I'm actually blown away by how well it works.

what are you talking about!? there's always the tutorials, or the study groups...

"what? of course they'll be tasteful...you DO care about art don't you?"

if it makes you feel better shiz, i didn't go to my graduation and don't know where my paper degree is.

what are you taking at school, pyze? sorry if i've asked before...
