++ HAPPY NEW YEAR!! it's 2004! there is a chinese custom on the Chinese Lunar New Year (which isn't the same as everybody elses new year and doesn't usually fall on the same day as the last) that whatever you do on new year's day will foreshadow the rest of the year. ok, maybe thats not quite it. but its close. so all debts are settled before the new year. red is considered lucky, so everyone decorates everything with red. people, usually elders, give the younger people in the family little red envelopes containing money, called 'lucky money'. everyone dresses up in new clothes from hats down to the shoes as this symbolizes renewel and a fresh start in life for the coming year. everyone visits each other and spends loads of money on entertainment. and to top it all off, everyone lights firecrackers at the stroke of midnight.

and so i on new year's day welcomed the first day of the year by staying up til 8 in the morning watching the entire second season of friends with chubbs, i mean fatass, i mean tubbs, i mean cow, i mean suzie! a great way to bring in the new year. :) ++

++ VAIL!!! oh powdery snow. you are my friend. i depend on you when i am falling. your fluffy features fluff my every flail, my every fall, my every flop. when i lay my head down violently against your coldness, you provide me with moisture to reinvigorate my taste buds. sometimes you touch my skin and it burns...from the cold. but you are still my friend. oh powdery snow. ++

++ OH THESIS. how i loathe you. ok, not really, but you make me stay up late. you cause my brain to think. you impose intellectual stimulation when i don't want it. sometimes you even kick me when i'm asleep. i don't like that. my computer whines when you're around. i know. it told me last night. it's tired of doing your busy work and constantly having to try out new programs. the lights in the room are being paid double-time right now as a result of you constantly 'hanging' around and not going to bed. the desk which i work at has complained everytime you put another dent or scratch on its surface. i'm pretty sure it's gonna just go off on you at any moment. the printer is always empty. i'm not trying to turn this into a race issue, but it's always out of black, but the photo colors are used rarely. perhaps you could for once cater to it and print more pretty pictures and less boring unintelligable text. oh, and the wallet. i think it may loathe you even more than i do! oh thesis. how i loate you. ++
