Happy Thanksgiving Everybody
Happy Thanksgiving everybody. Sorry I haven't been on. I've spent the past couple days trying to get my laptop up and going on its new hard drive. It would be going great...Except for the not booting part. I'll get that tracked down soon enough though I'm sure. I don't think I like the new Gentoo guide. They pulled out the stage1 and stage2 instructions (which were the ones I preferred to use), so you do a stage3 and adapt it down. Only the guide seems to be missing a few things...Like syncing your downloads so that it's not looking for files that don't exist anymore.

I hope everyone had a good Thanksgiving. I managed to spend mine with my family, though I won't get to spend as much of it as I'd like, since school seems intent on intruding in all my free time. Also, though I had a good Thanksgiving, it must not have been as good as Sapph's, judging by the email he sent me. His Thanksgiving appears to involve taking shots. I haven't even managed drinking (I don't drink the same beers as the rest of the family). Also, I've learned that my parents have evidently been lying to me. I'm not 3/4 German and 1/4 Polish. Now I'm told that it's half and half. Odd that the Polish side has the French last name. But I didn't talk to the grandparents to be sure.

Now I'm stuck at home, doing homework. My maternal grandfather is staying with us. This means that we've got his chickens, which aren't so bad -- I never have to deal with them. But we've also got his STUPID BIRD. It's one of these cockateel or cockatoo things, you know, the ones with the yellow faces and the red cheecks. I hate this stupid bird. It would take government scientists working around the clock for thirty years to come up with something more annoying. It seems to despise all humanity. This hatred it expresses with a virtually never ending series of high pitched shrieks. If you're lucky, it just whistles without ceasing. But mostly it shrieks. It's been quiet the past couple minutes, but I think that's just because I hit the cage and shouted at it. It also doesn't help that I've got a mild allergy to feathers, so I'm not inclined to like the thing in the first place. But I guess I am thankful for it. After all, it's taught me that I never, ever, ever want one of these horrible things in my house and I will prevent my children from ever possessing one with all the power I have.

    I'm just... freezing up here. Highs in the upper 20s, constant wind, virtually no cover... is it as cold in Overton?

    Regardless, I'm eternally thankful my grandparents for upgrading to satellite internet some time ago, which means I get to leech off of it. Yes, that's legal... when I use my own router and not their busted non-functional wireless router.

    Which reminds me, I have a funny story to tell you when we all reconvene after the holidays.

    That's cool, can't wait to hear it. And why would it be illegal to leach off your grandparents' Internet?

    Umm, temps back home weren't bad. It wasn't warm most days, but it was just a bit chilly, not really that cold. And today (Saturday) it was quite warm, in the 60's. Sad to hear you and my brother (who's up there with his girlfriend visiting her folks) are freezing though.
