Neko (lofulah)

Me? Perverted? Whatever are you talking about!?

For the mass loomed before her; it protruded; she felt it pressing on her eyeballs. Then, as if some juice necessary for the lubrication of her faculties were spontaneously squirted, she began precariously dipping among the blues and umbers, moving her brush hither and thither, but it was now heavier and went slower, as if it had fallen in with some rhythm which was dictated to her (she kept looking at the hedge, at the canvas) by what she saw, so that while her hand quivered with life, this rhythm was strong enough to bear her along with it on its current. Certainly she was losing consciousness of other things. And as she lost consciousness of outer things, and her name and her personality and her appearance, and whether Mr. Carmichael was there or not, her mind kept throwing up from its depths, scenes, and names, and sayings, and memories and ideas, like a fountain spurting over that glaring, hideous difficult white space, while she modelled it with greens and blues.

And what struck me when I first read this was:

Ugh.

6.1 and 6.2 quiz tomorrow. I think I get it, but there's a few things that confuse me. Must clear it up with Han tomorrow. He had better have his math stuff. Feh.

it's only 11:30. I've got 3 more problems to do and a final method to learn.

Really, I should read the textbook beforehand so I understand what we're learning in class and can pay less attention, 'cause you know, after lunch, I tend to be sleepy and discombobulated.

Scratch that, I'm always sleepy and discombobulated.

Mmmm, Lily keeps talking about beach week, which sounds more and more interesting... If she continues to carry on about it during math, I may have to make sure I tag along with wherever she ends up going, just to annoy her. (And see girls in swimsuits, but that's just the guys side of me thinking there, you know...)

If anyone wants to know, this is what we're learning in math right now. :D http://radon.mat.univie.ac.at/~gerald/ftp/book-ode/ode.pdf
That actually looks a lot like our textbook, but a tad bit more ugly (in terms of the variables that it uses, but looking carefully, it's the same formula's we use, just ugly. ::sticks her tongue out at it::) If you scroll down to Frobenius, that's what we're doing right now... 6.2, the thing I don't quite know yet.

Frobenius - section 4.3 in the above link.

Note to self: See if you can verify the Easter Egg - "The Practical Pig", Disney Silly Symphonies (another link)... Why? 'cause I want to see that Disney short... saw it twice when I was young, and it was one of my favorites at that time... And there's other reasons that I won't going into right now... Lady would know them. Need to find that DVD... Amazon isn't being clear if they have it or not... and I don't want to buy the DVD if I'm not sure if it contains the short or not... :P
