It's like candles vs lightbulbs... light bulbs are great at performing a function, but you don't turn on a lamp when you want to relax, and you don't gift someone a light bulb. They will never truly kill off candles.

so, some of you out there may have heard this already. for those of you who read my lj and follow the Wheel of Time series and haven't heard yet, the final book has been declared too long and the publisher will be splitting it into a trilogy.

the official press release and the author's comments on his blog are available to help explain why.

i think i've got it to a point that i like. i'm still not real happy with that education part, but i can't figure out how to make it better. i only had passing grades for about two semesters (about 1 year). so, my academic record isn't that great. so, here are the two options i've got at the moment:

so, i saw this show up today. it's a movie trailer for a movie i want to see. the trailer says that the opening date is july 4th, 2007, the webpage that the trailer is on says that the opening date is july 29th, 2007. i wonder if they changed the opening day because of this movie?

so, i have the new job at pitt. i got my ID last night. now i have a december bus pass i don't need and a november bus pass that i don't need and will be valid for another week or so. i'm looking to sell the december bus pass, if i don't hear anything here by this weekend, i'll probably post to craigslist or something.

the story:

while i was working for the county, i got a monthly bus pass taken out of my pay pre-tax. unfortunately, this meant that it had to come out several weeks before i received my pass (first pay period of the previous month). so, this means that my bus pass was paid for on november 14th. i put in my two week notice on the 17th. i would have had to request removal from the bus pass program before october 20th. in order to not have it taken from my paycheck. so, now i have this december bus pass i don't need.

the offer:

so, normally, PAT bus passes cost $60.00. since i had it taken out pre-tax, i technically paid a little less. i'm willing to sell it for around $50.00. if you are interested, please comment on this post. thank you.
