Grrrr. Landlords are evil. When we moved in, I made sure to write down all the things wrong with the apartment, including or crappy screens, and water damage on the wall by the shower and on the ceiling under the bathroom. They decided to do nothing about that. So now, we noticed yesterday that whenever we shower, the ceiling leaks. It leaves nice wet spots on the couch in the living room. Not cool. Josh called Hunziker (landlord) right after that, and they were closed for the weekend. We managed to get a hold of some emergency maintenance, but they couldn't do anything. They said the best they could do would be to call a plumber at 8AM on monday and make an appointment. That means we are without a shower for the weekend. That sucks. I called up my parents and they said it's probably where the tub meets the wall, and once I looked I agreed. That means that if we go buy a cheapplastic curtain and tape it to the wall in the shower, we can keep it from leaking. Or I can just take a bath. That's nice, since yesterday I thought I would have to go somewhere else to shower. Ashley told me to light some candles and eat some chocolate. I'm not sure she realizes that I'm a guy...

The other day I played a semi-joke on one of my team members. His name is Ryan, and I just met him a few weeks ago when we started working on our 2 semester long senior project together. He actually run a little website called Cyber Net News that is updated many times a day, and features geeky things. If you like computers like me, you would enjoy the site. Anyway, the other day we were working on the project plan, and instead of asking everyone what their addresses were, for the document, Ryan decided to Google everyone's name to find their info. Little did he know another group member, Aaron Nordyke, used to be in a band. A fairly famous Chritstian band actually, named 38th Parallel. They made it pretty big few years ago with their biggest hit being a song called Horizon. I still see people with their t-shirts from time to time. It makes sense, since the band is from Ames and all. Anyway, Ryan stumbled apon a few websites that had Aaron's name on them. He thought that was the coolest thing, that Aaron had a rock star with his name. I think Aaron and I had him going for fifteen minutes, surfing the web for pictures and everything. I'm not even sure he believed us when we told him the truth.

So that's my story. It's mostly a shout out for 38th, and Cyber Net News though. Click on the picture for a link to 38th Parallel's music video on YouTube. I even saw the music set to Anime, which Aaron was astounded to see.

Finally! I have time to do things other than homework. I guess I have been doing other things, but now I won't feel slightly guilty about it.

So I've been working on this website for a while. The last 3 weeks actually. It is finally finished and posted on the internet. But since the assignment required it, it has some stuff that shouldn't be up there. Like my contact info, and my resume etc. So I may take the page down, or change it. But not tonight, I'm tired. So enjoy the website! (click on the picture for a link to my crappy-ass site).
