Boo!  
One of the very few things I like about summer weather: a warm nose.

Ever notice the difference between Happy and Mad?
It's so simple, really... and yet profound.

To start with, in much the same way as "Love," these are primarily referred to as states of mind, but are also verbs. You might say "So and so (is) Mad at" in much the same way as you'd say "So and so threw (object) at" or "So and so was running at." This is a forceful verb. Happy is more easily grammatically pleasing; the phrase "person is happy with person two" is directly correlated to a phrase like "person is shopping with person two." Happy is a gentle verb.

But the clearest difference is the usage of "at" and "with." You cannot say "mad with" any more than you can say "happy at." Not only do these particular unique qualifiers sound right, but they tell you more about the verbs. At infers that one object is being spoken of. At is a solitary word, and "mad at" is polarizing... one person can be mad at another, but the other person does not have to be affected by the angriness of the first. With immediately tells you that two objects/persons are being unified. "Happy with" works in grammar and in real life because when one person is happy, in the majority of cases that happiness is contagious, especially if the happiness is directed at someone in specific.

So... more scientific/oddball then profound... but i thought it was an interesting concept.

Ok, so.... college is not fun sometimes, because... I REALLY like sleep! And... i would REALLY love to sleep one of these nights. *sigh*

Writer's block majorly sucks, and having 3 classes the same day an article is due = killing of all surviving brain cells.
Luckily my brain seems to be composed of the same alchemical properties as a phoenix, therefore it must resurrect itself each time it is thoroughly killed by my suicidal attempts at taking more classes than should be legally possible for someone of my mental status.

And does this make any sense? No it does not. For I am going crazy with these all-nighters and something needs to change...
Hmm, though, it might be in the process of changing right now.... we'll see. After the next 2 weeks... hmm, yes.

Ye hear it all the time... people can't finish an essay fast so they just B.S. it. Everyone's done it! It's quite simple... yet everyone has their own method for BSing.

Has anyone stopped to realize that BSing is actually writing?

My trains of thought are very long... but they tend to stop at railroad crossings to let the cars past!

I've discovered a little more about how my mind works. Knowledge, to me, cannot be a hobby, it has to be a job. Thus I've learned more about Processors, RAM, and different versions of the XP and Vista operating systems in the last few weeks that I've been researching laptops than I have in my entire 8+ year career as a technophile. It seems I learn in these really short spurts that tend to crop up only when I'm endeavoring into some new project, or buying something that will be of use to me.

How long can you read a book simultaneously (ie: heads together, cooperating on when to turn the pages) with someone before getting tired of the effort?

.... just wondering.
