1982 Kawasaki KZ1100-A2 Touring bike with shaft drive, yellow. Aftermarket shocks, oil cooler, heated handgrips.

Rides beautifully.

Who can say no to 100HP of <3 between their legs?

You remember what happened to Schrödinger's cat...
and you're probably familiar with Murphy's Law....

Well, if Murphy had a cat, I would be that cat....

The new computer is only giving me issues... Windows is virtually inoperable without right-click functionality, context menus and a delete key, while OSX leopard is just plain inoperable, the date keeps resetting itself to 2001 every time I reboot, and the wireless stopped working after less than 24 hours of owning it... which is the whole reason I needed this computer in the first place - my old one could no longer support wireless.

I guess my luck really DOESN'T change... though I don't see why I should have expected it to... it's only sucked harder than a Hoover at a movie theater for my ENTIRE LIFE.

Meanwhile, I'm too far behind in 2 of my classes already to catch up and pass at this point, because I've spent all of my time trying to fix the impossibly extensive technical issues that were preventing me from getting my work done, rather than, you know, getting my work done. Without passing those two classes I'll be forced out of the program, so I may as well consider just dropping out now so I can get a head start at flipping burgers to pay off the thousands of dollars I now owe... Christ, who do I even owe it to? the money wasn't even MINE, I got a deferment on good faith so I could get some loans in order, but if I drop out, I can't get the loans, and I'LL STILL OWE THE MONEY! They'll probably send a collection agency after me. I'm fucked! >.<

I suddenly feel ill... as in, more ill than I've physically been for the duration of this term to date thanks to whatever pneumonia-like illness I've been unable to get rid of in spite of the antibiotics and everything else I've tried... I think I'm going to throw up, which should look nice with all the blood in my throat.

Do you ever get the feeling that you're being tested? That all life puts you through is one trial after another to push you to the edge of your sanity, then teasing you with just enough hope for you to keep going anyway, on into the next trial?

Yea, I get that feeling too...

But there is hope. And hope arrived today by mail.

I have a solution now to the laptop problem, and also real food and household supplies to help ease the stress....

I am now officially giving up on my old laptop and retiring it. RIP, Ghost.

I now have a MacBook.

1. Plunge myself thousands into dept and immediately max out all possible loans without fully covering the cost of tuition and housing.

2. My laptop breaks, and I can't afofrd to replace it

3. Fall behind in all four courses and drop a gradepoint already in calc because I need my laptop to keep up in class.

4. My bicycle breaks that I just bought a week and a half ago, and I can't afford to replace it.

5. The $100 parking permit I bought 2 weeks ago to park my car for the semester slides down the dashboard, and I get hit with $120 in parking fines that I can't afford to pay.

6. I'm forced to consider the possibility of dropping out of school without refund and paying off all that debt the hard wya because my luck is simply too bad to have any hope of recovery if I don't.

edit: it would take -years- working at the best-paying (shitty) job available to me just to pay that off, assuming I can live without anything but basic shelter and ramen noodles during that time :/
I hate having to consider the reality of my position at this point.

I had to do it... please don't hurt me!

Seriously though, from now on any music-related journals will go there. Feel free to watch if you dig that stuff. See the profile for a sampling of bands you're likely to hear about.

Hell of a drive... 23 hours nonstop each way... and I75 through Atlanta at 11pm.

Seriously though, it was madness... I was doing 70-75 in the HOV, and the majority of the traffic was still whipping by me on the right like I was standing still. I think I saw one guy in that whole city that was doing the speed limit, and other vehicles were slamming on their brakes to avoid creaming his backside.

We came within 20 miles of Cincinnati on the return trip... wish I'd known we would be beforehand, and maybe we could have stopped there for lunch instead of just the other side of the Indiana border.

Finished a gift story for Nyghtwulf during the hours of the return trip that I wasn't driving.


That is all.
