well, i finally got a job, starts next week.  can we say "yay" for the fred meyer deli?  i didn't think so.  and it is, unfortunately, a union job.  that means i'll make more per hour, but with union dues or whatever it'll come out to less.  i hate unions.  but i have to put my principles on hold, otherwise i won't be able to afford books this fall.
on a side note, i think i'm going to start an (x amount of time) weird email subject line post thing.  or something like that.  to post all those weird subject lines, like "poke commit sidewalk" and stuff like that.  if nothing else, it'll give me a reason to log on, maybe i'll think of something else interesting to write.  and now, before i become totally incomprehensable, i'm done.
