Hi, remember me?

So I'm at work right now. Ainsley is here with me because it's take your kid to work day and I'm a nice Dad so put two and two together...

What child labor laws?

I don't get paid enough for this.

Kaylee was supposed to come but bailed at the last minute. Ainsley, to her credit, was quick to jump on a way to get out of going to school for a day. That's my girl!

I'll post to explain my prolonged absence from here soon.

Well my laziness paid off!

For the past couple of weeks I have been all set to write a rant about how lame 24 has been this season. Well I would be eating crow big time right now if I had because season 6 just saved itself... Jack is off to fight China!

Although my prediction of Audrey dying is now back in the pending file, this is an excellent development that has completely revived the show for me. Hopefully the last 7 episodes will concentrate on Jack taking out two years of frustration on helpless Chinese people and not worry about whatever Wayne Palmer's problem of the hour is. Happy days are here again!

Wednesday is going to be a long day.

Here's the breakdown:
  • Liverpool plays the home leg of their Champions League quarterfinal with PSV Eindhoven. Not a huge deal since they're up big thanks to their 3-0 away win, but it's still the Champions League none the less.
  • The Penguins open their playoff series against Ottawa (my least favorite team for the next two weeks). First playoff game for the Pens since 2001 when The Moose made believers of us all.
  • I register for Fall semester.
  • I have a Geology lab quiz. I kinda sorta care.
My head may explode at some point during the day.

And exhale...

I just got out of my latest "quiz" for Fundamentals of Technology. All in all I think it went well. I'm hoping for another B. Then I just have to nail the final and keep on keepin' on in the lab. My life would be so much easier if I hadn't bombed that first quiz. Oh well, life goes on.

All stations, report in!

Okay, so the fallout from my pre/post Spring Break barrage of major assignments has settled. Here's the breakdown:

-Test: 84/100 (just need to pass this class, no need to show off)

Computer Ethics:
- Mid-Term: 89/100
- Presentation: 100/100

Fundamentals of Technology:
- "Quiz": 81/100 (that's solid for that class. 3rd highest grade in the class.)
- Lab Mid-Term: 85/100 (this lab is a mess!)

Discrete Math 2:
- Mid-Term: 87/100 (he's letting us hand in corrections, so it will be a 92.)

All in all things turned out well. Fundamentals class is the only one I really need to worry about since I bombed the first quiz so bad. Everything else is under control.

A nice stroll through Holland

The Champions League quarter-finals got under way yesterday and the Reds came out flying. Hot off their trouncing of Arsenal, Liverpool took it to PSV Eindhoven from the get go and took an early lead thanks to a Steven Gerrard header from inside the box.

It's Superman!

John-Arne Riise would add a goal off a poor clearing attempt by the PSV defense. And then it was time for Crouchy to strike! A brilliant header from Peter Crouch (compliments of a gorgeous Steve Finnan cross) put the Reds up by three.

Celebrate good times come on!

Liverpool now has one foot in the semis as PSV would have to beat them by four goals when the teams meet again at Anfield to advance. That just isn't going to happen.

Don't even think it.

Bring on the winner of Chelsea/Valencia!!!
