"Many are always praising the by-gone time, for it is natural that the old should extol the days of their youth; the weak, the time of their strength; the sick, the season of their vigor; and the disappointed, the spring-tide of their hopes." — Caleb Bingham

I like this quote:
'Then Melkor lusted for the Silmarils, and the very memory of their radiance was a gnawing fire in his heart. From that time forth, inflamed by this desire, he sought ever more eagerly how he should destroy Feanor and end the friendship of the Valar and the Elves; but he dissembled his purposes with cunning, and nothing of his malice could yet be seen in the semblance that he wore. Long was he at work, and slow at first and barren was his labour. But he that sows lies in the end shall not lack of a harvest, and soon he may rest from toil indeed while others reap and sow in his stead. Ever Melkor found some ears that would heed him, and some tongues that would enlarge what they had heard; and his lies passed from friend to friend, as secrets of which the knowledge proves the teller wise. Bitterly did the Noldor atone for the folly of their open ears in the days that followed after.'

I don't normally browse around looking at furniture online
but Jon Barlow had a link posted on his blog that I happened to click (I do that with most of the links he posts, and they're usually really good). Why does this cost $6,230? It's made out of fiberglass and I can only think of two ways to sit on it....with both feet in front of you or with your left leg propped up on the side. Very uncomfortable-looking.

Organizational Behavior final project
I need to come up with a final project for my OB class. It's due in 2 weeks. Basically we're supposed to take OB concepts and present them in some kind of childish creative way. For example, last semester one guy made a drink recipe book, but the ingredients were concepts. Some girl wrote a fictional story, and a buncha people made board games. I've got a couple ideas for mine, like either architectural graphs or classified ads. I'd like to come up with some other ideas tho. Anybody got any?

I'm driving back to my apartment
and I pass this silver Z-28 with 2 girls from my Policy class sittin' in it. They're 2 thirds of a group my team is competing with in our CapStone game. The third girl I left studying her capsim manual at the computer lab. She's frustrated because she's doing all the work, and the other girls don't seem to care. Right now their team is finishing dead last, and there's no way she or either of the other two are going to get a passing grade if they don't shape up. There's really nothing this girl can do about it, though, because in these teams, the majority rules. I pass the other two, and I just know they're justifying to each other their laziness, talking about how shocked they were that this girl would accuse them of putting social life ahead of academics, how even if they are somehow remotely responsible for this mess, they certainly didn't deserve the way the other girl mouthed off to them. But it won't help things any, and the other girl is going to keep working, and when final grades come in, she'll probably fail along with the other two. One team down, 10 to go! 5891 ANDREWS R0X0RZ.

Speaking of Rick....
He posted something yesterday by the Iraqi blogger known as "Salam Pax." I read this guy's blog back as the war was starting, but he stopped posting for a while, so I stopped going. Apparently he's been able to get a lot more written and published, and it all makes a really great read. Here's an excerpt:

Ok.... to continue the story:
I actually promised to blog about this back in January, but never got around to it. It was the post about revenge and unforeseen consequences. I think everything's pretty much over, but there's this feeling I have that something may happen soon. It just doesn't feel over.

So next week school starts
and I'm wondering what's going to happen this summer, and if it'll be anything like last year. Last May I was staying with my aunt and uncle in Pensacola, bored out of my mind and sick of hearing my uncle's liberal bullcrap. I get enough of that from school and the news. I took a couple classes, hung out with Michael at his apartment on campus, but that was about it. Except for one saturday around 1 in the morning in June or July (can't really remember exactly when it happened), when Michael, myself, and our buddy Arch made a spur-of-the-moment decision to paper somebody's car (nothing good ever happens after 10PM, as someone once told me). After mulling over our options, we decided that John needed it the most, because his parents were out of town for 2 weeks and he was home alone.
