Lists

I never thought that I'd come to appreciate having portable apps (programs you can use out of a thumb drive) around, esp. Portable Firefox and Portable Gaim. I mean, if you can surf the net and chat out of one's thumb drive, go for it. It's handy for when you use school computers a lot and you don't want to really leave an electronic trail behind... :) Oh, and if said computers in question don't have Firefox (which they do here, so I'm fine) and only have IE.

Here's something I received from a penpal via email... How true is it I have no idea.

Subject: 13 signs of ur soulmate
13. When your on the phone with them late at night and they hang up but you miss them already when it was just five minutes ago...
12.You read their texts over and over again...
11. You walk really slow when you're with them...
10. You feel shy whenever you're with them...
9. When you think about them, your heart beats faster and faster...
8. You smile when you hear their voice...
7. When you look at them, you can't see the other people around you... all you see is him/her...
6.You start listening to slow songs, while thinking of them...
5. They become all you think about...
4.You get high just from their scent...
3. You realize that you're always smiling to yourself when you think about them...

1. While reading this, there was one person on your mind the whole time...

Then there's the part where you make a wish and pass it on to others something good would happen to you, bla bla bla.

Anyway, so-called Festival of Nations is coming this weekend. From what I heard, there's not much of a response. Personally am not sure if it's cos of Malaysian domination of the event or what lah. (Which a someone didn't fail to point out one day last week).

Here's another thing that I found on another blog... fecking hilarious.

How many Minnesota students does it take to screw in a light bulb??

1. At Augsburg, it takes seven and each one gets four semester credit hours for it.
2. At Bemidji State University, none, Bemidji doesn't have electricity yet.
3. At Bethel, it takes none. They don't screw.
4. At Carleton, it takes two. One to change the bulb and one to explain how they did it every bit as well as any Ivy Leaguer.
5. At Concordia, it takes ten. One to figure out how to screw it in, nine to find an ugly enough lampshade to match there school colors.
6. At Gustavus, it takes six. One to change it, two to mix the drinks and three to find the perfect J. Crew outfit to wear for the occasion.
7. At Hamline, it takes three. One to change the bulb and two to phone a friend at St. John's to get instructions.
8. At Macalester, it takes four. One to screw in the bulb and three to figure out how to get high off the old one.
9. At Mankato State University, it takes 1, but it takes him 6 years.
10. At Moorhead State University, it takes 3, one to change it and 2 to crack under the pressure.
11. At St. Ben's, it takes 4,one to change the light bulb and 3 to figure out how it will help them meet their future husband.
12. At St. John's, it takes none. We get the Young Tommie Sluts to do it for us, and they make us lasagna.
13. At St. Mary's, it takes five. One to change it and four to talk about how they would have done it in Chicago.
14. At St. Olaf, it takes 100. One to change it, 49 to talk about how they do it better than Carleton, and 50 who realize it's all a lie.
15. At St. Thomas, it takes eight. One to change it and 7 to bitch about how they wouldn't have gone to St. John's/St. Ben's even if they could have gotten in.
16. At University of MN St Paul, none, down town St. Paul looks better in the dark.
17. At University of MN Twin Cities, 4, one to change the bulb, and three to write up a complaint to the Board of directors stating that they could have gone to a better school If they had wanted.
18. At the University of MN Duluth, the whole student body, there's nothing else to do in Duluth on the weekends.
19. At University of MN Morris, it takes 1; he just holds the bulb and waits for the world to revolve around him.
20. At Winona State University, it takes 3, one to change it and 2 to figure out how to turn it on.
21.At St. Cloud State University, "who gives a FUCK ... let's drink in the dark!!!"
