So anyway, Bill Gates is here. Yes here, as in actually here in Waterloo. He's over at Hagey Hall right now answering questions and being interviewed and all that jazz in front of a crowd of over 650 people. All the overflow are all sitting around a screen in the SLC watching--that's about another 500. Wow.

I had a class over at Hagey's this morning, and as I was coming out, I heard the BEST conversation:

"OMG do you think Bill will like this shade of lipstick?"

(Note: Her lipstick was some sort of soft sparkly pink)
(Second note: They were quite near the end of the line, no way would they have been in seeing distance of any shade of lipstick unless it be electric blue or something)

"I have no idea--do you think my shirt's okay? It's not too slutty, is it? Come ON guys, I need your help here!! But I guess even if it is that's okay I mean like it doesn't matter so much if he can see me, right?"

...Snicker snicker. People make me laugh. And then I'm just bidden to mock them.

[EDIT]: Oh my god, I've got all of a calculus assignment to finish by today and just because Jezebel Red came on my playlist, I got the random urge to go and visit Nautibitz--and promptly was led to reading Older which I hadn't yet and which is bloody hot. Oh fuck...

Current Mood: busybusy
Current Music: Jezebel Red - Your Bitch

Kehe, I too have Jezebel Red on my playlist -- and zomg i only need S7 and my buffy collection will be complete, I am pleased but I must resist all fic and watchage of things because I have a major math assingment due tomorrow that i havent started, my big programming assingment (which i am luckily almost done) and 4 hours of class left today.

Errr, plus, im out of clothes and have to do laundry...

Siggh, but now youve got me thinking of fic -- Older is awesome, I wonder if it was ever finished... hmmm

I so remember replying to you so gah, go LJ for eating my replies!

But yes. Older was finished, it's the first version that's ever been tacked with a "The End" at the end, if that's of any source of reassurance, despite the fact that Nauti is well-known for extensive revisions.

I have a CS lab that is due... about two hours ago. Erm.

See, that whole entry is even better when accompanied by this headline: Gates strokes Canada's high-tech talent pool.

*grins* I love that they were actually serious too. There was a bunch more talk about all the time they'd spent the previous night going over jewelry ideas and stuff. x_X;

Jesus, being a girl looks like it's hard work!

lol ...trying to look good for Bill Gates is funny. If we were all in high school with him, we would not be treating him the same way at all.
Stephaniemirroredsakura on October 15th, 2005 11:00 pm (UTC)
*snickers* With that kind of money? I don't believe you. He'd be getting buried under a rain of panties if he was within throwing distance of that many money-hungry schoolgirls.

Especially in Japan. ;p
Hareimachang on October 16th, 2005 03:35 am (UTC)
lol Again I can't write correctly. What I meant was that if we were in High school with Bill Gates, as in we are all the same age, I'm pretty sure no one would be that impressed. XD Sorry for the confusion.
Stephaniemirroredsakura on October 16th, 2005 03:55 am (UTC)
No no, I got that. But I'm still pretty sure he'd get pelted with plenty of offers. Money's sexy, after all.
Hareimachang on October 16th, 2005 04:02 am (UTC)
lol I don't think Gates was rich in High school. I think he was still his his dorky nerd age.
Stephaniemirroredsakura on October 16th, 2005 04:14 am (UTC)
OH you mean if WE were HIS age THEN. OH.

Feh. Then yes. Let him play with his toys in his garage by himself. *trots after schoolboy!Hyde*
Hareimachang on October 16th, 2005 04:20 am (UTC)
Gosh you make it sound so much easier when you write it *hides in a corner*
Stephaniemirroredsakura on October 16th, 2005 04:59 am (UTC)
Why thank you! *beams* Second language and all that.

*luffles* It can only get easier. I slogged my way through writing a whole slew of fanfic, you recall. ^_^;
Hareimachang on October 17th, 2005 02:32 am (UTC)
lol Of course I remember. And it was great.

you know somehow I just dont think bill gates really would care no matter what you had on, he might like you more though if you could unfreeze windows! ^_____^
Stephaniemirroredsakura on October 24th, 2005 03:17 am (UTC)
Or provide him with the ultimate weapon in which to beat down Google once and for all.

He might marry you for that. ;p
aylengyraylengyr on October 24th, 2005 06:25 pm (UTC)
yeah maybe he hates not having a monopoly on the internet im sure! i saw his house on tv once, it wasnt at all what you would expect it to be like. not at all!
