fermenting grad school...

ah...

well beer is fermenting.. i'm going over ot check on it tonight... i think this reciepe called ro 3 - 5 days for fermentation... so we may be bottling this week... i chcked on friday... and it's startingot smell like beer, instead of jsut nasty...

i found out i'm "admissable" at MSU... and I'm talking to a professor about doing an assisantship under him... i shoudl hear form OSU this week... still all things being equal I'd go to OSU... however i will go to MSU provided they have a better match for me and/or provide more funding...

firdya night movie... didn't happen she got called in to work... so i dunno... see where that goes from here... she said she'd lie ot reschdule but didn't ahve a time that would work yet... so...

buckeyes lost... umm, not sure what eslse ot say... defense was shit in the first half... second half was very defensive... PSU is still undefeated, and they looked pretty good... i think it's neat joe paterno is still aorundand has an awesome team... he's so old school... and it's almsot sor tof cute seeing him onthe sidelines...

ah f1... i was up till nearly 3 watching the Grand Prix of Japan live... second to last race of the season... first lap was terrible, montoya broke his car.. and kimi was forced to star tinthe last position due to having ot qualify inteh rain plus and engine failure in practice giving him his 4th ten position grid penaltiy of the season... without montoya it was up to Kimi to keep mclaren inteh constructors championship race... wlel with 2 laps left it made a pass to get itno 1st position where he finished... it was jsut amazing 20th to 1st... amazing driver, amazing car... mclaren is now only 2 points behind renault, they were up by two last week... so they can very easily take the championship in next weeks grand prix of china... it was worth staying up till 3 to see...

i liek the announcers comments onthe kimi pass... he was saying how f1 is an acquired taste, especilaly to americans used ot allthe passing that occurs in nascar... but then he said passe sin f1 are worth 200 nascar passes... hehe.. nascar... ::shakes head:: sanctioned road rage... professional wrestling on wheels...

finally ordered more cd's from metropolis... my last set was rotersand and unternull... i liek rotersand a lot... unternull.. i idon't like much... my new set was system syn, cruciform injection, and iris... i listened ot each labum thorugh once... now i'm listening exclusively to system syn, i like it... i'll listneto cruciform injection next... they opened for grendel wheni went to that show and was fairly impressed with them... iris... umm synthpop... it's different... only listened to once.. but it's not my norm...

this coming week.. should hear form OSU... have tomorrow off work... columbus day... friday going to the farm house in southeast ohio for a family pig roast... it was fun last year... i think i get ot take mone of my 7's this year.. the roads down there will eb a balst inthe 7... i dunno what else... work... so yeah...

this seems to be a post...

i don't even remember what i wrote about in my last post... but i just feel like typing right now.. so here it goes...

back in dayton... stuff is going well... i'm being reasonably social... i've yet to play a computer game... have spent a fair amount of time on the 7, tha'ts not looking good... but lets not talk about that... works going great, keeping busy and the days are flying by...

have grad school apps in... i'm honestly leaning towards OSU... there is just a certain feleingi get in columbus... stuff just feels right there... people wan t me ot go work for them in cali... also the guy i worked for my first co-op term at my dad's work would like me ot come work for him... i think they would be willing to help out withthe cost of grad school at either place... but i've decided only to go that route if i am unable to get a research assistantship or a fellowship though, i think i'ts more important to work on school full time, and develope strong relationships with my prof and other students i'm doing research with, instead of trying not juggle work and school and half-assing both...

doug and i have decided we're gonna attempt to make our own beer... it is probably goingot be absolutely terrible... but i wanna try it... if all goes well we'll purchase equipemnt we didn't already round up along with ingredients and brew up our first batch... then we wait two weeks and pray... while getting some materials at lowe's a employees asked us if we were getting supplies for a "drinking party"... they see college aged guys buying nylon tubing they assume it's for drinking... jeez...

hmm...sunday after chruch i went ot doug's to play poker and watch football, afterfootball we went to the dayton art institutes octoberfest... i tried spaten a gemran beer which was allright... i actually like the Leinenkugel red lager on tap more... an dit was much cheaper... i had it befor ein bottles but on tap it was jsut very good... i can't believe people were paying the same price for miller...

i'm supposed to see the corpse bride friday, with girl mentioned in previous post, yay...

umm... afterwork getting supper with doug then going beer fixin' huntin'...

i finally found a way to keep moisture in roland's house... i stuck a failry large sponge on one side of his cage... he's been far mroe active since this addition... it holds the water better than the substrate...

work tomorrow... i hope i can sleep tonight.. last couple nights i have had severe issues finding the sandman... it is cooler tonight... cool air helps... i suppose i should tryto sleep earlier since i am tired... goodnight...
