4:27 pm - To see the world in a grain of sand...
This makes my toes curl:

How much does the internet weigh?
We put cyberspace on the scale.

By Stephen Cass

How heavy is information? Most of us know that computers represent all types of information – e-mails, documents, video clips, Web pages, everything – as streams of binary digits, 1s and 0s. These digits are mathematical entities, but they are also tangible ones: They are embodied and manipulated as voltages in electronic circuits. Therefore, every bit of data must have some mass, albeit minuscule. This prompted DISCOVER to ask the question: How much would all the data sent through the internet on an average day weigh?



current mood: geeky

Because chronic headaches and depression wasn't enough, now I get to have an ulcer too. My doctor sent me to the ER yesterday so I got to spend five hours waiting around for a man to come in, poke my belly and tell me what we already knew. I think the whole process would go remarkably smoother if they administered the pain killer first rather then last. I know i'm more complacent when doped up and probably wouldn't have created such a scene when they tried to get me to take off my pants. In fact, after the drugs i probably would have volunteered to strip. It really didn't do a thing for my headache but it sure picked up my mood.

current mood: stressed

2:29 pm - Tarantino on collecting movies
"If you're a film fan, collecting video is sort of like marijuana. Laser discs, they're definitely cocaine. Film prints are heroin, all right? You're shooting smack when you start collecting film prints. So, I kinda got into it in a big way, and I've got a pretty nice collection I'm real proud of."

If men could menstruate ... clearly, menstruation would become an enviable, boast-worthy, masculine event: Men would brag about how long and how much.... Sanitary supplies would be federally funded and free. Of course, some men would still pay for the prestige of such commercial brands as Paul Newman Tampons, Muhammed Ali’s Rope-a-Dope Pads, John Wayne Maxi Pads, and Joe Namath Jock Shields —”For Those Light Bachelor Days.” -- Gloria Steinem

At age 22:

Charles Darwin set off as ship's naturalist on a voyage to South America and the Galapagos Islands.

James Joyce left his family, his church and his country for the European continent, in order to become a writer.

By 22, Swiss psychologist Jean Piaget received his Ph.D., published 20 articles, and wrote a philosophical novel that outlined many of the issues he would explore during his career.

Caresse Crosby became the first person to patent a brassiere, which was made of two handkerchiefs and ribbon sewn together.

The Greek orator Demosthenes, orphaned at age 7, took his guardians to court when he was 22 for misusing his inheritance. He won the case.

Olympic runner Herbert James Elliott, ranked by many as the greatest mile runner ever, retired undefeated at 22.

U.S. swimmer Mark Spitz won a record 7 Olympic gold medals.

Inventor Samuel Colt patented the Colt six-shooter revolver.

Cyrus Hall McCormick invented the McCormick reaper, which allowed one man to do the work of five.

Earlier tonight I was most deliberately not watching the Oscars when I was struck with a strong desire for something jiggly.  I'm a bit of a hedonist so I like to indulge my whims when I can and I thought on the feeling for a moment before as quickly as lightning finds a fat man with a key I hit on an idea. "I know!" I thought proudly to myself, "I'll make some Jell-O!"   I rummaged through the pantry and sure enough there was a small pink box winking at me from the top shelf. Mmm, strawberry. Feeling a bit Martha, I made it in a clear apple-shaped glass bowl and set it in the icebox to cool. I was quite happy with myself. I even a hummed a bit as I walked away when the thought crossed my mind: I wonder what makes Jell-O wiggle? Obviously something to do with the gelatin... Hmm, gelatin... why do I think I don't like that? 

Oh, yeah. Because it's made from grinding up pig or cow's bones, hooves and connective tissues.

I am the WORST vegan in the world. How could I have never connected that? I always think of Jell-O as being so innocent, I totally missed it for being the sinister little psychopathic dessert that it truly is. 

So moral of the story? Constant Vigilance!

I'm so sick. I'm sleeping like a million hours a day. I saw my doctor this morning and she wrote me some prescriptions (because i'm not taking enough pills already... ha!) so hopefully that'll help but i'm not feeling terribly optimistic. I always dream so funny when i'm sick. 

Speaking of dreams, I watched the Science of Sleep and loved it but I can totally see how it can basically be compared to Eternal Sunshine without, you know, Kaufman's writing. 

And...speaking of Charlie Kaufman, who i totally dated in a past life, anyone else excited about the movie he's working on right now? Yeah, he's actually writing and directing for the first time- which just typing that sentence honestly got me a little wet. I seriously can't wait to see what his mind comes up with. The basic story is about a theater director who is trying to like build a life size replica of new york city inside a warehouse for a play. Ug, I hate waiting for things. 

Other news... um, nothing. My life is devoid of meaning. Ha! I sleep, i go to school, i eat and in the rare moments i find myself with actual time to spare i try to fill it with mindless tasks that'll keep me from questioning my existence. Oh the joys of winter.

Delta is High School with smoking breaks.

Josh is the greatest person in the world because he's the only one who can truly appreciate the hilarity of the random encounter I had today. But he's probably sleeping because he works insane hours in the morning. 

I want coffee but I need sleep. Oh what a quandary.
