I'm sick of being angry and sad all the time. I'm sick of feeling bad about this shit.
||[16 Feb 2010|09:17pm]
I really don't have shit to say today.
I feel lik e a giant asshole, and want a cigarette so fucking bad.
I'm gonna try and ge tup at a reasonable hour tomorrow morning, and go for a run.
Lets see how well that works out for me though.

Ughhhh store meeting at 6:30. Till like 8.
Then work from 3-11.
Then off on Friday.
But no downtime, regardless.
I feel oddly cocky.

I wish last.fm worked with the Zune media player, because I like it better than WMP and iTunes.
I also use it because of my Zune. And because its pretty.
I started writing again today.
I started running again yesterday.
My stomach hurts. I should probably sleep.

No Doubt never applied so well.
Except about friendships, not about relationships.
I dunno. I treated one of my best friends like shit.
Repeatedly. Didn't try hard enough to keep in contact, etc. Didn't make enough time. That sort of thing. Kept saying shit would get better.
Just kinda not trying to get back in touch is the best thing to do for now right?
I've got no friends here, really. Brad, and Isaac (a coworker who I've started hanging out with recently), and thats really it.
I wish I was better at meeting people, or keeping in touch. I'm a little amazed at how easily others do it.
I mean-- Colin makes friends so much more easily than I do.
I also have seen nothing thus far that makes me not want to be disgusted with the Scott Pilgrim movie.

Fuck all this shit.

I'm butter on a summer day
When she's around
I was on the tracks
When the gate came down
Suddenly I recognized
Those bloodshot rearview mirror eyes as mine
I heard that whistle call my name
I almost drove away
But Megan I had a feeling that you would be on that train
So I just waited there for you
Caught a ride to another town
Where the air was clean
And the sun never goes down
Everyone was standing in a line
Between the landing and the stairs
I heard somebody call my name
I almost climbed the stairs
But Megan I had a feeling that someday you'd meet me there
So I just waited there for you
Butter on a summer day
When I hear that name
It's a dream that never came true
Sat down on the tracks
And waited for a train to take me back to you
Somebody came and took my hand
I finally had to go
But Megan I just want you to know
That I waited as long as I could
Butter on a summer day when she's around

If L is the length of the snake and T is the thickness of its body wall, and the snake swallows up to length S, the snake's growing diameter is given by R=2T(1+int(L/(L-S))).
Since the horizontal diameter of the snake-donut (measured out to the snake's axis) can't get smaller than the width of the snake, S is constrained such that 2T(1+int(L/(L-S))) is less than (L-S)/pi.
Say the snake in the picture is 1m long and has a 1cm body wall thickness. This means it can't swallow more than 74 cm of its tail before it closes up completely. At this point it will have swallowed its own tail nearly four times.
If you forgot to impose the length restriction, you'd find that the snake would contract in width but grow in vertical thickness, so you'd have the snake donut rising out of the horizontal plane toward infinity while contracting its diameter. However, this relaxed constraint means that opposite points in the snake donut that are both in the horizontal plane would start overlapping themselves, so the whole thing would remain as a sphere with a particular maximum radius. Though it's fairly straightforward, I'm not going to work out the volume of the resulting sphere -- because honestly I've had it with this motherfucking snake on this motherfucking plane.

the "me" in this is Colin.
me: what on earth is that purple stuff?
me: what is it in?
Kyle: a speaker
I will have pet corn starch in their own big speaker habitats posted as sentries on either side of my door to my dream home
Kyle: the cornstarch will no doubt dance to the songs of the Indigo Girls
me: I listened to every indigo girls CD there is the other day
and then watched three year's worth of Lilith Fairs on Youtube
and then listened to some Paula Cole
I think I may be pregnant now
Kyle: I can't believe I dated a lesbian
me: I told jake that I did this, and he became concerned for me
Kyle: it is kind of messed up
me: well it's not like I sat in front of my computer in a dakrened room, rolled up in my blanket while I listened, crying, over the crinkle of empty luna bar wrappers
Kyle: I'm not convinced you didn't
me: I was doing things, and it was good Being Industrious music
Kyle: and good industrious years-of-lilith-fair-watching
me: well, I only watched a few of those in front of the computer
the rest I cranked up and listened to while cleaning
Kyle: doesn't change the fact that you're a total lesbo

"I thought what I'd do was, I'd pretend I was one of those deaf-mutes. That way I wouldn't have to have any goddam stupid useless conversation with anybody."
I'm on the verge of total dissociation.
I need a few days, I think.
