Oh, baby you can walk, you can talk just like me.

With a little practive, you can walk like, talk just like me.
If that's what you wanna do.
Well, you can look, you'll walk in circles around me.
But first, I'll walk in circles 'round you.
But first, I'll walk around the world.

sorry for the lack of lyrics lately, I've been grooving on non-lyrical music the past week or two.

So, ja, I've come down with something. I slept in yesterday, which helped a bit, but today I have helpline all morning so I couldn't be late again. We'll see if I stay the whole day or not. :)

I've discovered that I can use a little salt/pepper packet to help keep my glasses from cutting my nose. See, the little pad-thingies on them fell off months ago, and I'm left with sharp jagged plastic mounts where the pads would normally go. These hurt. I've tried tape of various types, but they didn't stick well enough. Using a napkin to cusion them worked after a fasion, but the various layers of the napkin seperated in under an hour or two. The pepper/salt packets work well, though. They are just perfectly sized and the grains inside provide a little cusioning. The only problem being that when I use pepper, I have a slight scent of pepper for the rest of the day. :)

I spent some time working on the iBook last night, I've almost got KDE acting perfectly like I want it to. For some reason it keeps launching quartz-wm, though. Which is kinda cool in that I get the Aqua titlebars and the apps minimize to the dock, but I preferr the graphical look of KDE titlebars (in particular, the glow decorations, which don't seem to be available on the OSX port of KDE -- I'll have to go download the set from somewhere).

Which reminds me, anyone know where I could go to pick up a set of those oversized tennis balls they make for the geriatric crowd? I've got an experiment I want to try involving them (or, rather, the case they come in).
