Nothing beats friends and beer

Unless of course it’s friends with beer. Or beer with friends. Either way, you’re in good hands.

So last Friday was the last day of finals for a few of my more edumicated compadres, so to celebrate we had a minor get together. Starting with a little Battlefield fun down at the Cove with Matt and Terry, we headed down to the Keg with a gift card that Terry “found” that had a whole $60 on it. Mmm, tasty. Gotta love rib eye steaks and beer. From there we went and grabbed Mike, who wasn’t in the best of shape after not doing too well on one of his finals (Don’t worry Mike, we know you’re awesome), and it’s off to Bailey’s!

First time I’ve been to Bailey’s,it’s a pretty nice looking place on the inside. But what’s this business where they make you check your bunny hug? Pfft! So a round of Kokanie later Mike’s more than a little tipsy, and I’ve got a nice Guinness buzz going. Another pint later and Mike’s a little MORE than a little more than tipsy. But he found the bathroom! A schooner later and I think he’s about had it. And he wondered off…. For like 20 minutes and we have no idea where he went, so we just stay where we are with a couple of Terry’s pharmaceuticals friends (Nice peoples) and eventually Mike comes back.

Long story short, a trip outside and a confrontation with a bouncer later Riley and Dan make their way over to enjoy the funness that is whatever we’re doing, and a schooner later (for Riley this time, we cut Mike off good), we’re all singing and having a grand ‘ol time.

Soon enough though, we’re on our ways home. I gave Matt, Terry, and Mike rides home and then headed over to Riley’s to watch Tron for the first time. I love Tron. Tron kicks ass. I should have watched it way sooner. Next on my list: Dune and Blade Runner.

All in all, definitely a fun night, and I’m looking forward to doing it again. And I think Matt owes me a campus tour…An EPIC campus tour! Mwahahaha!

The Ultimate Star Wars Personality Test

Well, at least I’m a Jedi Master for reals now.

A learned man

So, about 2 weeks ago I went down to the University to see if their dental and orthodontic students would work on my head (Which went pretty well by the way, looks like there’s a good chance they will), I also stopped by the Admissions building (Handy folks) and got some information about enrolling for learning in the fall. Got my transcripts and everything into them, and about a week ago got a letter from them!

Dear Steven,
Sorry bud, you missed getting a grade 12 science. You lose at life. Or do you?

That is to say, I don’t. Though I’m deficient a grade 12 science (Technically a natural science or a fine art), there’s a very handy program called the Arts and Science Transition program. It’s set up for students with a grade 12 average over between about 70 and 60 (I think), or those who are deficient a class (That’s me!). So in light of this new discovery we took another trip down to Mr. Humbert at Walter Murray. He thinks that this program is the best thing since boxed pie crust (Much better than sliced bread, for the record), and wishes that everyone HAD to go though this for a year before going head first into higher learning.

Basically, program is the full fledged Arts and Sciences program, but for the year you can only take up to 18 credits (The minimum to be a full-time student), and you also take a class called Campus Life 101 (The class is open to everyone, but it costs $50 normally and is optional, where it will be free for me and I have to take it) that teaches you all sorts of handy things, like how to properly write essays (Something I suck at) and how to write papers and do other collagey things. The program is also supposed to have some of the best proffs teaching in it, which kicks big butt. Best part is, with this as my first year of University, the second year is right onto the main campus and I can pretty much do anything from there. Higher learning here I come!

How Not To Be Seen

In response to How Not To Be Seen, the Halo Edition, Graham wanted to see the original. Hail Python!

Gotta love those Naked Ladies

I’ve loved the Barenaked Ladies since I was but a wee lad. I was even lucky enough to go see them in concert in February (Fourth row for the win! Take THAT Matt!). And I think I’ll keep on loving them (In a totally platonic heterosexual kind of way) until either they’re long dead or I fall into a bottomless pit. They’re just so damned fun. And here’s a fun video I found on YouTube.

You know how on YouTube there’s always those people who set up their little webcams and play their favourite song from their favourite band? Ever wondered what it would look and sound like if the professionals did it? And what if those professionals were Naked Ladies? I think that’s asking for greatness!

Play hundreds of classic Nintendo 8-bit games on-line

Definitely one of the more notable things I’ve seen come up on Digg. Definitely need to check this out!
“Super Mario Brothers, Zelda, Mega Man, Castle-Vania and most of the other classic Nintendo titles playable directly in the browser without download. Gotta digg this!”

Everyone hates hangovers

Everyone hates hangovers. And everyone seems to have some sort of trick to getting rid of them. Well, most of them don’t work. So rather than finding a cure for a hangover, why not try and lessen the blow a bit? No, I don’t mean stop drinking, where’s the fun in that? Lets get drinks that don’t cause as bad a hangover! Hooray!

Clear Alcohols with Water Based Mixers: Clear alcohols (Vodka, Gin, Light Rum, etc.) have less hangover causing Congeners, and water based mixers will lessen dehydration.

Drinks that Contain Vitamin B6: Bananas contain Vitamin B6 and B12, which are known to help reduce hangovers. Bananas are also high in Potassium, which is depleted from alcohol consumption.

Have fun and happy drinking!
