Erelong the month of December will be upon us (it has already arrived for some of us), and I am still what seems to be light years away from any decent opportunity that would enable me not only to make Christmas happen this year but also to regain those life XP which I have lost in this devastating, dormant phase.

A factor that has refueled me, however, is the fact that Thanksgiving Day turned out to be a positively memorable one. There was (and is) still something for which to be thankful, amid the myriad internecine problems worldwide:

In other news, the Christmas tree still rests in the box which it has been resting for nearly a year. Hopefully that shall be changed within a matter of minutes, for it is imperative that I have this thing up before the start of the new month.

Emptied even of the excitement in choosing my attire for Thanksgiving 2010, I am here semi-cloistered in this room amongst a landfill of semi-organized books and strewn-about papers and envelopes.

Update: I actually have organized those books and papers, so there's next-to-nothing on my floor now.

After those tables having demonized data entry for me, I am in a refractory period for dispersing characters. However, I have been slightly regressing in my posting ways (frequency) because the holiday season is here, and being ready for it is imperative! I'm even leaving right now to prepare even more. Auf!

I shall promise to have more substantial posts than those made within the last few days.

Mine trappings seem to be quite the common occurrence in the world today.

Today was about analyzing and strategizing with the intent to maintain what little social utility there is in relation to me. Some helminth has possibly slithered into what has already been my relatively protected social domain.

I'm ending this post right now. I was just alluding to my bouts with website security. I usually do this, but I just cannot right now.

Being halfway finished with these tables, an alternative must be sought out and implemented so as not to be absolutely frustrated with characters altogether by the time I'm finished with what is now the laborious task of inputting these characters (let's ignore my misplacement of frustration, though.)

I am seven minutes tardy in making this a November 15th post, and I won't alter the date and time of the post (I see doing that as some sort of 'cheating'; I attach some sort of opprobrium to doing it.)

As it nears Thanksgiving, I grow more and more excited. Attenuating that excitement, however, are concerns about this Thanksgiving not being a white one (i.e. part of my idyllic Thanksgiving Day). This certainly wouldn't serve to allay such concerns:

(Oh, bit.ly has a new look.)

However, this does:


Prestidigitation with my heart is prestidigitation with my heart is prestidigitation with my heart. Quit playing games with my heart, please.

Here are more of the tables that have induced a phobia for All Things Data Entry within me (I still do it for my benefit in the foreseeable future):

I come by rather briefly to post these, as I'm rather tired at the moment.

Allow me to state that exceeding your self-determined limit on your Procrastinators Unite...Tomorrow card verily has its consequences. Other than having set myself a few days behind and having leveled up to a Level Four Trichotillomaniac, this was an awesome day: nebulous skies lasting into the night, harmonization of the weather with its season, and a reunification between a laptop of the times of olde and its companion.

Oh yes, and I managed to finish these:

ماه است که در این بلاگ در فارسی نمی نوشه ام. آیا ایرانی ها هستند که این بلاگ را بخوانند؟

While Iran has been cast as a bête noire in the eyes and minds of many around the world, it has much about which it can be proud amidst the lot of haters. In addition to being backed with millennia of history and religions--remnants of which may be seen and perceived throughout the country--a more recent accomplishment is Philosophy professor Karim Mojtahedi's receipt of the Avicenna Prize for Ethics in Science, and the 90th birthday of its first female physics professor and female astronomer, Alenoush Terian (الینوش تریان), was celebrated today. Iran does have its merits; it does have significance beyond being a player in the internecine Judeo-Islamic, (Middle) East-West, and nuclear-non-nuclear dissonances that have both/all parties teetering on the lines of war.

Today was pretty vacuous event-wise, save taking some of my baked goods to my grandmother.

I made more cookies today with the leftover's from Halloween. Surely saturated with sugar, I'm sure that they are amazing.

In other news, the awkward highs in the 60s, which are rather irregular for this city in near-mid-November, continue throughout the week.

Finally having paid off some of the temporal debt that had accrued on my Procrastinators Unite...Tomorrow black card, I am very happy to say that I may now proceed to exhaust this newly gained credit by shirking and procrastinating in other tasks!

No, the creation of these Chinese character tables isn't one of the tasks to be punted to the backburner, but Arabic translation certainly is something that I shall not do again for quite a while.
