I can't believe that Jacob Hoggard is in the final 3 for Canadian Idol. Not only do I know him, but we went to the same elementary school and high school. Not to mention he lives JUST down the street from my house.
He was 2 grades younger than all of us, but me and Eric still had to TA some computer classes he was in. Jacob is one of the loudest, craziest, and most annoying people you'll ever meet. We made lots of fun for him and he tried making fun of us, but it just didn't work.
I remember this one time, we were in computer class and the teacher was away. Jacob was running around, jumping over computer desks and whatnot, and I throw a black plastic tube at him. I'm guessing it was some kind of weird computer partt from a macintosh, those machines are alien to me.
So he grabs it, and starts sucking it like a dick.
He drops it and screams "Ewwwww it tastes like ether!!".
He was definitely a weird kid.
So anyways, if he lives only a few houses down from me, and went to my schools, then why the hell does he say on the show that he's from Abbotsford? Is surrey not good enough for him? Did he think it'd hurt his chances if he said he was from HERE? Man, that sucks. Have some surrey pride boy!
Well as much as we made fun of him in high school, we hope he wins! Just so we can say, "we used to make fun of that Jacob guy who's a millionaire right now."
Well, the UPS guy brought the present I bought for Val today. That sure didn't take long!
The best part was tracking its route on the internet. First, it originated in "CHEK LAP KOK" (Yes, there is a kok in my lap). Then, the package was transported to "KWAI CHUNG" (Yes, Chad did say that she was quite young). The address was "93 KWAI FUK ROAD". Ok, I'm not even gonna comment on that one.
Val, I know you're mortified thinking about what I might have bought you. But rest assured, you'll love it!
The picture doesn't do it justice though, in reality it looks far worse!
My computer case has a window on the side where you can see all its guts. Over the past year, my video has has been drooping lower and lower. Now it's completely noticeable, but it still works perfectly fine!
Why is it melting? Am I overheating it? It's not like I often play any graphics-intense games that strain it. So what the fuck!
ATI needs to stop making video cards out of candle wax.
Wow I haven't made a real post in here for so long.
My summer's been going alright. Worked for the first half of the summer, had some excellent pit parties, and generally just doing lots of fun stuff with Vuv and all my friends. So many things have happened, there's no way I can type it all out.
It's hard to condense this all into a big post, but here's basically what I want to say:
I BOUGHT A NEW DIGITAL VIDEO CAMERA: I went and spent almost $900 on a new video camera for filming out movies on. It's the Sony DCR-TRV460, which uses Digital8 as the format (whish is basically the same as MiniDV except it uses 8mm casettes instead). This camera has night vision, night color mode, a touch screen, mind-blowing image and sound quality, and so many other features.... holy fuck. It makes me VERY excited about our new movie. It even does widescreen!
WE ARE FILMING ANOTHER MOVIE DURING THIS SUMMER: That's right, it's about a robot. The robot costume we made looks incredible! Me and Eric spend all of monday working on it! Filming will probably take 2 months or so, since I really don't want to rush anything like Copside 3. It won't be a long movie, 30 minutes at most, but we're going for quality over quantity. Remember the 80's scene in Copside 3? ALL OF OUR NEW MOVIE WILL BE THAT GOOD.
ERIC'S CAR GOT BROKEN INTO: Me, Eric, And Sara went to see I, Robot. When we came back to the parking lot, the car had been broken into. Eric and Sara both lost their phones, and sara also had her purse taken, with all her ID in it and her paycheque. It sucked big time. That crackhead bastard also got my NIN toque. I was so pissed off, I've had many memories with that toque! Fuck it, I got a new one the same day I bought my video camera!
I STARTED TAKING A SUMMER COURSE YESTERDAY AND DROPPED IT THE SAME NIGHT: Now, I had to take algorithms again so I decided to take it in August to get it out of the way with. It was 3 nights a week... monday, wednesday, and friday. Initially I thought that each class was only 2 hours long. Then I found out they were actually 4 hours long. So I'd be in there monday/wednesday/friday from 5:00 pm until 9:30 pm!!! Shitty hours eh? Ok, so the hours sucked, I decided to go ahead with it.
I go to the class wednesday night, and the instructor starts talking about how tough the couse will be, since they take the regular 3 month course and cram it into one month. Okay, I'm getting sorta worried. I mean, I did bad enough when I took it as a 3 month course, it's THAT hard. It shouldn't be too hard though because it's the only course I'm taking, and I'll get through it. Right?
Fuck no, he started teaching it, and I knew I was screwed. He's a REALLY REALLY good instructor, but the amount of material we covered in 4 hours, and me getting lost through most of it, I knew there was almost NO chance of me passing. I would basically be throwing away the $499 I paid for it, plus my whole summer trying my hardest to pass it. Not worth the shite.
It would be much better to take it in september with my other courses, at regular hours, over a regular period of time, and pass it.
I was getting so stressed out and depressed over it that I ended up dropping it and getting a full refund. So now the rest of my august is free, though I'll probably be working most of it.
