Misc

Not much happening, really, just being pretty productive.

Last night, did about half of my twice a month finance maintenance.

Also had some funky dreams, one of them about Charlie Jade coming to the US. Not only that, though, they were showing a second season. Woohoo! Too bad it's not real.

Also taking my thesis into this convergence of utopia, dystopia, organization theory, social cognition and perception, with social cognition being the newest part and social cognition and perception having more to do with each other than anything else. I don't really have anything more specific to say about it, though. I just have a bunch of rumination going through my head trying to make the thesis consistent and closer to my understanding the topic, academically and colliquoally .

Otherwise, tonight finishing up my finance maintenance then packing for the weekend Chicago trip starting tomorrow night.

Glad to hear you're makin' some process on that Big Dig of a thesis of yours...word up, cherry coke

Thanks.

Something real annoying somewhat on the topic: I had recently gotten a reward gift certificate from my credit card company for Amazon.com.

Rather, I should say that I got the packing slip for the certificate. I didn't really bother to look at the packing slip before assuming it was the certificate, though. So much going on around, you know, that I don't bother looking at details until something doesn't work.

So I tried buying a book about social cognition last night off Amazon.com with the certificate. Of course, it didn't work, but stubborn as I am, I tried for about an hour or so to make it work.

In the end, I dug through my recycle bin a couple times then called the credit card company to let them know that I got the packing slip but no certificate. They said that they have to refer it to the marketing department, and it'll take them 7 days to send me a certificate.

Argh! And I was pretty excited about reading that book. From what I read, it looks like something that touches upon a lot of questions in my head, not just about the thesis, but also about nationalism and ethnic disagreements and wars and such.

Jerks.

see - when you get a reward certificate...they treat you like mud.

When you wanna BUY something...well...
