I forgot how much it sucked being sick. I may go home tonight and rest there ... just so I don't also get my roommates sick. But there goes any chance I'll be at CALL this year - damn - and I was kind of looking forward to it ...

I found $10 on the ground today, but some odd reason, I felt guilty about it. I looked around to the left, then to the right, then picked up the bill. But why did I do that? Would there be any way I would know if someone had JUST dropped it? No! So why did I feel so shady picking up that $10 bill?

To those of you who are unclear what a man-bag is (see previous discussion), I found a snapshot I took while waiting to board my flight at Incheon airport:

It's a Burberry manbag. Look at the way the "man" has to hold it; just like a woman. Notice also it's unwieldy size: too big just hold your "wallet," yet too small to hold anything of manly value (e.g. laptop).

Speaking of craptops, I figured it was time to show you my craptop, the IBM Stinkpad 600x:

Yes, I am missing both Alt and the Ctrl keys on the right side. The reason I use cardboard is that it hurts just to use the little nubs. While in Korea, due to weird power transformation, the thing would actually shock you if you didn't have the cardboard there. And as I mentioned a long time ago, I also have rearranged my keyboard to serve as a "dummy filter" (reasoning: If someone can't touch-type this day in age, I really don't want them using my compter).

We want paintballing this last weekend:

I'm honestly not sure why I'm holding out the number '5.' I think I thought doing two fingers was gay, three fingers was still too close, and four fingers was ... well I'm not really sure. Sadly, I got only 2 kills during the whole 4 hours we were there. I suck at paintball. But I serve as a great target.

And lastly, a picture from driving back on Highway 54 back to Chapel Hill...

I love Chapel Hill.

Damn boy, what did you do to your Thinkpad? Those things are built like tanks (trust me, I abused the crap out of mine while in Korea).

Hope you feel better dude.

Heeey, that's not a Burberry bag, it's a Louis Vuitton bag! Specifically, a Louis Vuitton Damier bag, although I don't know what the style's name is. =b *sigh* I love handbags...

Being sick blows, man. I just missed a day.

I'm getting a parse error when I check your feed...

Haha, my friends would hate your keyboard more than they hate mine, and mine's like piano keys - pure white without anything written on them. But yours is absolutely misleading! :D

Wow! did you buy special keys for that?

Nope, it's the product of low-quality keyboard + excessive typing to wear the letters out. :) The effect is quite nice though, watching people struggling to type their passwords when they want to check their webmail. Mwahahaha.

Hope you feel better soon Roy. Get plenty of rest, take lots of fluids and chicken soup, and Tylenol for fevers. :)
