So I have a bunch a of pictures from the Leopard release event, and then when I installed. Plus one of the crew (as in rowing) team on the CMU Cut drumming up support (in the cold). One of Quinn being Quinn. And a pumpkin I made cause I was bored and was given a pumpkin. Then Optimus Prime in my calc class. Oh, and one last one of Kate (my sis) that I found while cleaning up my hard drive - she looks so different.

So its around an hour and 15 minutes until 6PM and the Shadyside Apple Store opens up for the Leopard release. It's raining, but I'm #6 in line! But it is so worth it. Hopefully I can get it for the $69 education price - if not I'll just get the free shirt and play around. Did I mention I'm on about an hour's sleep?

Now 19 & Vegetarian Food Evil?

So close to midnight last night I realized that I hadn't opened all my gifts yet. Subsequent opening revealed a lot of food (plus a bike pump and a 3D puzzle). This I like.
In unrelated food news, Entropy+, an expanded version of the CMU convenience store opened on the 24th. Someone pointed out the odd pricing on all the frozen vegetarian food (see the pictures).

T-Minus 1 Day to B-Day

Anyone who has spent time with my father knows he has these weird shakes in his hands whenever he tries to hold something (apparently from ODing on caffeine in college). I'm here today to tell you that this may be hereditary! All this time I've poke fun at him - and now I've got it.
I also had another 7:30 AM calc exam today. This = no fun. Especially when, with 15 minutes of exam time left, you're told that the problem you have been slaving over is being changed because it is impossible as-is.
In other news, it seems the poor lad pictured is being slowly eaten - head first - by a bean bag chair in Wean hall. Further investigation reveals that it is a Google branded bean bag. Perhaps this is the beginning of Google's attempt to index people, as well as everything else in the universe.
One last thing - go to The Vote here at shullian.com. Cast yours and tell everyone you know to do likewise. (Note, if you already voted as "other" then vote again - I had to remove that option.) The Vote is the result of a couple of conversations I've been in that have concluded that we can no longer rely on the US government to work for the people. That's the central US government - the executive, legislative, and judicial branches housed in Washington, DC. My opinion: there is just to much self-interest, corruption, and plain old stupidity (oh, and religion) in our nation's capital for things to work out.

Happy Birthday - to Me

And a very happy un-birthday to you!

It seems that as a very special favor to me, my class schedule is totally blank today! That's not to say I don't have tons of work to do - but at least I have all day to get it done. Plus, the Scrubs season starts today!
Oh, I've already opened all my cards, so thanks you Mom, Dad, Kate, and Shira (the iTMS card came). Packages are later tonight (and apparently there's another one waiting for me to pickup).
As a special treat to myself, I stayed up all night and wrote a program called Suckface. It scrapes Facebook profiles, parses them, and enters the data into Address Book.app (so you can quickly store a person's proper name, b-day, phone numbers, screen names, email addresses, and picture). Let me know if you want to give it a go.

Happy Birthday Shira!

I just want to take a moment and wish Shira B. a happy birthday! 

Happy 19th Shira! (You've got me by just 3 days.)

I don't know if it's because I'm in a city, or it's just Pittsburgh, but I've come across more blind people here than in the rest of my life combined (though that really isn't saying much). And they're amazing. I was riding the bus one day and this woman with a seeing eye dog was there. All she needed was someone to confirm what stop she was at. She seemed otherwise unhindered. And then today I was grocery shopping and a little old lady came up to me and asked if I knew where the baby carrots were. When I attempted to point them out she informed me that she was, in fact, blind. The only clue was a cane over in her shopping cart - no characteristic sunglasses, dog, etc, and she was looking right at me. I was stunned, and after apologizing brought her over to the carrots. My guess is that they must have switched location or something, and she didn't feel like groping all the produce. But other than that...

It's just awesome.

More Poetry

I've updated the Closet Poet page with Sweet Nothings Four through Seven. Why aren't all the Sweet nothings sweet nothings per se? Because they're part of a compilation (which I have the rest of my life to finish) called Sweet Nothings: Poetic Libations of Love, Lust, and Lament (a verbose alliteration of a working title, no?).

In Transition Preview

So if you were wondering what this sitcom pilot is that I'm working on, maybe this will clear things up. (But I doubt it.)

October 13, 2007


In recognition that Coming Out Day was on the 11th I've decided to admit it:

Sometimes I think I'm a lesbian trapped in a man's body - I'm always attracted to women. ;)

Catch Up

So I haven't posted in a while. But I've been busy.
On Sunday I began work on a TV sitcom pilot. Some grad students have connections, so they're making a pilot to pitch to some studio(s). It's essentially a based-on-real-life college student comedy. For the time being I'm figuring out how things are going, so I don't have much to do outside of waving people away from our shoot. But I'll try to move up. 
I got started in it cause I'm a part of cmuTV (our campus TV group). I haven't really done anything for air yet, but I have been redesigning the website.
On a different note, my sister's birthday was Monday. So Happy 16th Kate!
Speaking of birthdays, mine is coming up in 15 days. I know what you're thinking; "What can I get this guy that will show that I care?" Well, if you do care, send me monetary contribution. And the next time I go grocery shopping, or get a haircut (I really need a haircut), or get new shoes (I'm contemplating these), I will think of you.
Oh, and I just got email indicating my heating will be turned on soon!
