Randomness on Wednesday

I'm in Contra, so someone get me a Konami Code - I need a life or thirty.

1) I was thinking, wouldn't a terry cloth ballgown be the best? You wouldn't have to worry about the cost too much: Just sew a couple of towels together. You'd have the most comfortable dress at the dance.

2) I have a new vacuum. It's a gently used Dyson and I love this thing. It actually vacuums the floor. Which is a definite improvement over my old one.

3) It's only the third day of school and I've already overslept. Wow. Just wow.

4) The campus bookstore is a total ripoff. Last semester I bought one of my books used for $35. Apparently it retails new for $25. And the scary part about buying my textbooks online this semester is that I'm not sure if they'll get here on time to actually be effective.

5) It's cold.

6) I'm hungry.

7) I have four classes today.

8) Spring Rush is tonight.

9) My to-do list is a mile long.

10) I'm in class and blogging, and the guest speaker actually thinks it's cool. I love classes on Social Media.

The Vacuum Must Die

I want a new vacuum. For most of my life I've been dealing with this:

The Vacuum from Hell

From the time I was a kid and was terrified to try and work something that had gears you had to change (neutral and drive - yes. This thing drives itself), to the memories I have of using it for my bedroom, it's been around.

And I hate it. I have always hated everything about this stupid vacuum. It doesn't go into the corners well, the drive is too fast and feels like it's going to yank your arm off, and now the drive belt won't stay on.

It dies tonight. I'm now officially saving up for a new, fancy vacuum so I don't have to ask an inanimate object to do the job it was built to do.

Save me, Craigslist!

Come Play With My New Dog!

He's here, on the computer, so the apartment complex people can't say I'm not allowed to have him! ;)

Wordle, New Year, and Randomness

I've become obsessed with a website called Wordle. Basically, you upload a paragraph or a series of paragraphs and the program generates a cool picture with certain words bigger than others, depending on how many times the word shows up in the uploaded text. Here's one I did of a recipe for an Apple Tart with Caramel Sauce:

Wordle: Apple Tart with Caramel Sauce

It's also the first post of the new year! So happy New Year to all, and I hope it's a fantastic one.
