Pete's Log: like a banshee

Entry #1135, Wed, October 10, 2001, 15:06 EST (Life in General)
(posted when I was 23 years old.)
Certain aspects of my life these days are beginning to remind me of middle school, and it's not simply the fact that I'm speaking more German of recent than I have in a while.

I'm rather enjoying myself. Unfortunately, I'm really tired right now and thus I've found myself unable to focus on doing any work today. So instead I'm writing down (some of) the results of whatever random thought processes are currently coursing through my brain.

I definitely appreciate that the latest VLSI homework I did allowed me to draw pictures with crayons and colored pencils while pretending I was doing some sort of serious mental exercise.

I desire a greater understanding of punctuation rules in English (or American) grammar.

I've finally made my way through one of the most boring parts of Tolkien's Lord of the Rings. As much as I appreciate Tolkien's storytelling, there are parts that just drag on forever. I remember having difficulty with this bit last time I read the books. But my rate of progress has increased again as I have found myself back in an interesting part of the story. I'm nearly done with the Two Towers. I watched a new trailer for the movie yesterday and am more excited than ever for it to come out. In the words of Mr. Sordi (who is wise in the ways of Hobbit-lore), "December 19 can't come quick enough."

Last night Andy, Cari, Meagan and I watched "The In-Laws" with Peter Falk. It was a zany comedy, and I would have enjoyed it simply for what it was, but the fact that it included a "like a banshee" reference turned it into a superb film. And I always did like Peter Falk.

Number of times I proofread this log entry: 4. Sadly this isn't really above average.
