i am journal slacking again.....
we'll all get over it.

the hard drive on my powerbook died. i was devastated. poor thing has been all over the world with me. i was even more devastated because i thought i had lost my thesis. (Do NOT even say the word backup) but i am smarter than i give myself credit. i backed it up a couple of weeks ago and, of course, i haven't touched it since. but i lost other things. i'll get over it. so now i have a new macbook. i feel like i am cheating on my old powerbook...which is now living in the closet because i can't part with it. BIG thanks to ph4red for entertainment and sanity (well, as much as i have anyway)

i passed czech. with a damn B, but i will take it anyway. still waiting on another grade and another exam to write. very much ready for the summer so i can play brain dead for a few months, drink lots of vino and read nonacademic stuff.

i have been audible-ing, off and on, a great book by Bill Bryson - A Short History of Nearly Everything. though scientific history, it is quite interesting and he is a great narrator.

We live in a universe whose age we can't quite compute, surrounded by stars whose distances we don't all together know, filled with matter we can't identify, operating in conformist with physical laws whose properties we don't truly understand.

makes me feel a bit small.....

wandering does not make you a "gypsy."
why would you call yourself
after those who have no home?
long skirts and hoop earrings
do not make you a "gypsy."
why do you call yourself after
those who have no clothes?

"gypsy" is pejorative. please don't perpetuate the stereotype. educate yourself on what it really means to be a "gypsy" in this world.
