An exercise in futilty

So. I just cleaned my laptop screen. Which is blog worthy because, well, this is the second time, in two and a half years of ownership, that I’ve actually cleaned my screen. I mean, I used Windex and a paper-towel and everything– more than just brushing it off with my hand.

The thing is, though, that the dust never becomes more than partially opaque. It’s like making your bed– your bed can either be “made” or “not-made.” When made, it will inevitably become not-made again, in short order. But if it isn’t made, it will simply remain not-made, and will certainly be no less useful for being so. I guess it’s like that with my laptop screen. It could be not-dusty, or dusty. Once it’s dusty, it doesn’t really get any dustier. It just stays dusty. Having cleaned it, however, I’m sure it’ll only be a few weeks, and it will, once again, be dusty. So … I learn to deal with the dust. I just turn up the backlight a little more, yeah? Like my bed. Ya know? I think I’ve made my bed on three or four occasions this year, including sheet changes. But… who am I trying to impress? Quan? Psh. If anything, I’m sure he appreciates that I don’t try to make my bed in the dark at 5:00 in the morning (which is, painfully enough, the hour I find myself waking up with an increasing frequency… ug!).

In the mean time, though, it’s 61′ in Bozeman, and people are walking around in t-shirts. All I can say is … damn the Bush administration for not signing the Kyoto Protocol! It’s the 6th of November. There should be two feet of snow on the ground.

That aside… it’s a short week for me. No class tomorrow, and no class on Friday. Which means I’ll have lots of time to catch up and get ahead with, uh, my school-work. Yeah. That’s the one!

In the mean time, I guess it’s time for me to see what the rest of the internet looks like with a clean screen. I’m excited! Onward!

    I don’t know what’s going on with the quotes and slashes and stuff. I certainly didn’t change anything… and it seems to work for me…

    Uh. I think so. I could be wrong. For example: I’m under the impression that I slept for 7 hours last night. But I could be wrong. It’s perfectly probable that I, instead, spent four hours posting and removing posts. That might explain why I feel sick and tired today…
