The soup is gone

I’m really tired of looking at that soup everytime I come here. It was good soup, but it’s time for something new.

I came across an article today on Slashdot explaining why we hiccup. Anyone who knows me very well will understand that this is particularly interesting to me because I seem to get the hiccups all the time. The article indicates a relationship between hiccupping and suckling. You can draw your own conclusions about what that says about me since I hiccup all the time.

My birthday is only three days away. I’ll be 28 on February 9. I was planning on retiring by the time I turned 30, so I guess that means I need to really start investing soon. My birthday present came in the mail today. It’s a GeForce3 Ti 200 video card. It’s not exactly top-of-the-line, but it is the best card you can buy for under $100.

Classes are chugging along pretty well. I’m building circuits and programming PICs in Advanced Electronics, planning complex software to solve business problems in Systems Analysis and Design, and doodling in Introduction to Statistics. This is my last big semester, so it’s all down hill from here.
