Email your prof. Be Nice!

Simply ask your status in his/her class, and how are you performing when compared to your peers.

Smile: It's Wednesday, and that means new comic day. I also got news that I might, might, be able to get a sneak preview of Prometheus this weekend.

Ticked: Last night I opened the fridge, a beer dropped to the ground, and basically erupted all over the kitchen. Not a fun clean up.

Happy: Picked up the Japanese version of Jet Set Radio for $7 at a local shop. Missing the manual, but it was cool to find it for that price.

Sad: There's a seemingly insignificant scratch on the disc that's in just the right place. The game won't load properly. It crashes just trying to go into the options menu from the title screen. I was able to play through the first stage and then it locked up. Going to take it back and see if they have JGR as a replacement... thankfully I don't already own it.

Hopefully you get to, I'd like to hear your THOUGHTS.

I'd better be good or else I'll be sad.

I'll add spoilers after it is released (early June I think) but will definitely let you know if it is worth seeing. I'm fairly sure I'll see it this weekend, but I don't want to get my hopes up. Either way, I'll be revisiting Alien and all the special features again on Friday.

I like Aliens a lot, but Prometheus is directly tied to the best of the Alien films, Alien. I"m sure there will be a few callbacks to sets, and all kinds of goodies from the original film. And now I'm doing what I should never do; get hyped for a screening.

Ticked - have to go to the dentist tomorrow or Friday. I hate the dentist, hate hate hate. My old one use to talk the entire time then get upset when you didnt respond. I havent been able to go for a few years due to insurance issues, but now that they are hammered out, well I have to bite the bullet and go in.

Smile - finally got my two coworkers up to speed so my workload just lessened, alot.

See if your coverage covers Nitrous. No, I'm serious. They can put you out for a cleaning if you ask.

Also, make the dentist WORK. Before leaving, in a blender add 4 oreos, one dill pickle, a handful of cheetos, 1 TBSP of horseradish, 1/4 cup juji fruit, and 2 cups of buttermilk (room temp). Blend, gargle, spit, repeat.

Thats sounds good, but sadly, my coverage is only accepted at dentist in a boxes - All of which have HORRID reviews. So I am going in for a cleaning out of pocket, any fillings I need will have to be handled later. I am pretty pissed that this didnt work out, but ohwell.

Frown: I missed my court date yesterday, and the universe conspired in keeping me from showing up on time today.

Smile: I made it with a minute to spare (pretty literal here), my case was up relatively early, and the judge dismissed everything, including missing yesterday.
