    I agree. I haven't worked since...Dec. 20th. I had a nice lonnnng break. And I'm sitting at work right now half asleep. Maybe it wasn't such a good idea to sleep until 1pm basically everyday on my break.

    There's barely any work to be done right now anyways, so it's all good. One of the good things about designing the newspaper is that it's not busy around this time of month. :^:

    I worked Thursday/Friday last week which was kind of a joke. This week is starting to feel more like "real work" again already. :P

    I've heard that before but I honestly don't know. We get mice but I've never seen a rat.

    This is even cooler, a giant robot filipino movie that looks goofy and fun.

    for added bonus, the actor that plays the main character is actually supposedly a governer in the Philippines.

    So, according to these guys Spanish is the second most spoken language in the world. For some reason, I thought it was English.

    So I had this dream: I found a hat somewhere on campus (similar to the one Gabe's character wears in todays PA comic), and it granted you the ability to fly if you flapped your wings like a bird. The rest of the dream was me flying around my campus, on the usual paths I take. At one point a handycapped, overweight woman in a wheel chair started chasing me. Some how she was able to walk, and was running after me with a broom, trying to get my hat so she didn't have to use the wheel chair anymore.

    What a dream.

    I don't think those figures make much sense. I mean, the table damn near contradicts itself in every row. And arabic has an almost 200 million discrepancy? Its sorted by the Ethnologue, but there are all these other estimates on the same table. And like Hindi has an estimate of 948 million total in one, and only 181 million in another? How can India have about 1 billion people with only 20 percent of the population actually knowing the language?

    Its a well known fact that 80% of all statistics are bullshit or made up on the spot to prove a point.

    Gahhh... Don't you hate it when you get part of a song stuck in your head? All I hear is the Indian chanting in the background of the song. It was a song i heard in the 90's and it came back to me today.


    Hope All you guys had a good New Year's! I have to go back to school tomorrow. :<

    Man, do yourself a favor. Go out and get laid or something. Then again, with your enthralling conversation about punctuation, I guess it'll be kind of hard. Better just pay a girl to give you some MBOS™.

    I'm supposed to be gaining weight at the moment (I got put in hospital for that and my heart a couple o' weeks ago), but somehow I managed to loose a bit last week (I think I have a crazy high metabolism now, or the scales screwed up or something...).

    So now my mum's freaking out and trying really hard to put on a rapid weight gain. But I swear, all I want is a nice sandwich or something.

    Bingo.

    EDIT: Well, was, really. Plus I was never ridiculously underweight like those freaky models who look like they're made of sticks or something, it was more that I had dropped a lot of weight really quickly and it was messing me up (especially my heart; my pulse was dropping in to the high twenties).

    You'd be better off eating lots of carbs. Eating lots of bread and stuff like that would help put on the weight more quickly than sugary stuff.

    That all really sucks. Plus it seems like junk food wouldn't be any better for your heart in the long run, either. Maybe you can point out things you like to your mom as well as the calorie count? Meat & cheese on a big, thick sandwich isn't exactly slimming. Things like fresh bread, potatoes, etc. That's assuming you DO like those kinds of things.

    You can eat healthy and still put on weight, I would research that before you kill your self on the opposite end of the scale :p

    Like it was mentioned carbs, meats, cheeses, dairy.
