Good at Math
I was kind of surprised because I never think of myself as a math person anymore.
I also was 97% for vocab, 96% for comprehension and reading but only
76% for spelling. Luckily, spelling has not been very important in my life since the computer corrects almost everything.

Buffalo Public Schools 818th/829?
Anyhow, I didn't believe him how bad it was because the people I know who went to Buffalo public school seem okay. I figured it was just private schooling parents freakin out about how bad the schools are.
Then I tried looking up some info about the schools in buffalo and happend upon schooldigger.com's entry for Buffalo. Apparently, Buffalo is 818th out of 829 cities reviewed. Yes, that puts it at 0/5 stars.
Omg, look at Buffalo Elementary School of Technology over at 313 South Division Street - It is 2273rd/2278 public elementary schools in state ranking. Can it be worse? Yes, but only 5 places worse ;(.
Clearly it is a economics issue as that school has 97% of students on discounted/free lunch.
It seems like all the white people are leaving. Looks at the stats. Its interesting that this site offers so much information about each school. Sadly, there is not much info for the private and charter schools.
Same with Bennett which was 750th out of 776 public high schools.
Same with Buffalo Traditional School which is now close
Where did all the whities go, this is during the 90s and early 2000s that it all changed? Did they used to have forced integration that ended. Just look at the numbers that dropped since 2000.
Hutch Tech got great reviews. Is there any hope for buffalo with such a crappy education system in place? Is there even a solution?

At School WIth Terry
(e:terry)'s classes are in a room that could hold like 300 people. It has the ambiance of a bingo hall. It actually sounds almost just like one. People were disgusting and they left food everywhere.
Liek in every direction people just left food and drinks. I don't think I was ever in a class with more than like 30 people. Oh, once this biology class in germany but it was very intense and the people were really into it as you had to respond.
UB had this whole display about planning and talked about parking. Wow, there is sure a lot of it there on North Campus.
I got home a decided to take apart one of the old PDAs to see if I could canabalize the gsm modem for the not phone. I think it is totally possible but now I want a HSPDA one.
Watching the way over GPS
They had these crazy new pillar statues that look like they are being blown over, over by capen.
We ate dinner at Fuji Grill again.
Fuji Grill tastes pretty good but my surf clam was nothing liek the one I got the other day although it was very cute
(e:terry) got stir fry

Nameless Bitch's Graduation
Anyways, so before that can happen I have to post about nameless bitch's graduation and Mother's Day.
It started out with (e:lilho) dressing up nameless bitch
Unfortunately, the shoes she choose for her
I can't believe how commercialized this stand makes graduating.
There was the sign with sangia on it. Imagine being the butt of everyones joke.
Someone lost their toupe in the parking lot.
Hot wrestler guys in the painting - does anyone know this painting
(e:lilho) was being her usual celebtritant (celebrity-debutant)
Then off to cozumel for cocktails and food.
I had the blue crab tacos.
We stopped by the new head shop on elmwood where squeeky wheel was. They tried to sell (e:lilho) a pair of sunglasses for $300. She talked them down to $200 despite the fact she was not buying them. It was all very sketchy. I mean who is to say they are real.
I peeled lots more paint. Soon it will be painting time. I kind of love the pressure washer. I just wish that it would be 3500 psi instead of 2200 psi.

Graduation, Vents, Tea and Brownies
Well, it took long enough but today was graduation day celebration with my family and it was great. We went back to marotto's It is a delicious restaurant in Buffalo. I had lobster tail. I haven't had it in years and it was exceptionally delicious.
I am determined to eat more of them which I know is cruel or something. I want to order them from this online store in Maine They have jumbo 2.5 Lb ones for $26 and I have some graduation money to use up but the problem is deciding to have them shipped dead or alive. If they come dead I have no guarantee how fresh they are. If they are shipped live it is cruel.
There is a furnace vent in our bedroom that basically opens up into a chimney. You can see the sky. It is so weird. I cannot imagine the original purpose of it. Here is a pic from it
Betty Crocker makes these Warm Delights that allow you to "bake a cake in your microwave." They require a lot of work and make a lot of waste. The bowl they "bake" in is basically a Tupperware quality piece of plastic. I would never buy one but my mother had like 5 flavors she got on sale so I figured why not try it. It did taste good.
I got a graduation card from (e:mike) and my parents but there was one more envelope. It turned out to be a graduation card form Nonna that she put together before she died because I was suppose to graduate when mike did. Remember, that she had the stroke on his graduation day. It was sad to think it will be the last card I ever get from him although it was nice to have an extra one.
(e:mike) bought me goldschlager and enough lottery tickets that I got tired of scratching htem and had him do the last one as an additional gife. I actually won a $1 on a coupel of them and one an additional take 5 that I need to go get. I love lottery tickets but not the ones that you have to think about.
The might leaf tea company makes this really awesome tea. My father got some for my mother in California and then they found it at bluemountain on elmwood at 509 Elmwood Avenue
My mother also had these tea blossoms that (e:mike) in Boston.
The other day one of our server freaked out at work. I hate windows.
I a down to 145 pounds. That means I lost half the weight I had gained at the gym before buying the house. It is time to go back to the gym. I really need to commit to that.

Now I have the paper. Tomorrow I will have the papers for the house. Then I will be set.

Submitting the Thesis
I would like to thank Lisa Wist (e:twisted) for encouraging me to make my ideas a reality and for helping squash the bugs that got in the way. I would also like to thank the members of elmwoodstrip.org for contributing millions of their words, tens of thousands of hours of their time and thousands of their personal media files to the digital quilt that is elmwoodstrip.org. Moreover, I would like to thank Terry Mickelson and Matthew Sliwinski and all of my family for putting up with my unavailability during this entire thesis process.
Man it takes forever to load It could have been better I guess but I spent all my time on the project as you all know.
These instructions are so conflicting with their Important! and [Optional]
Handing it in - Last trip to the CFA?

The activity formerly know as school
I really don't have time to write about all the steps that it involved but after jumping through like 65 hoops today including having to reset my UB card ID strip to print, I now have a thesis in front of me and am going to hand it in. This morning I sucessfully defended it, which I have to say was way less scary than I thought it would be. I wish I have more time to deciate to the process and write a book about estrip but I will leave that for the sociologists of the future and return to programming and graphic design where I belong.
Hopefully, soon now I can go back to adding new featjres each week after a quick rewrite of the entire system!
I am now off to go buy a stove, a washer and a dish washer with my mother. She is going to be so exited to get so much big shopping done as will be the woman she made the appointment with.
