My old Pad (heavily-modified 3001) was wrecked in an Accident, and I decided to start mostly anew on the new One. Like with before, I'll post some Entry - Apology if I reiterate initially. I'm from Tarsa-on-Rhein, a small Town most known for Mustard. I'm at Eras-Uni, in my first Year, and have not yet decided on my Foci. Like my Family, I'm with the 11th - my Father and Mother crossed from the 10th shortly before I was born. </p> <p> This is the first chance I had to load the Pad - the old One died on 51st, and I didn't order the 3314 until Midday on 52nd. It felt like Forever, and I had to use my old 2950 to take Note in Class Yesterday (which obviously did not work for Equation). After Class today, I'm heading to a Plugcentre to hang out with Nana for a bit. I'll write more then -- I still have a lot of Stuff to configure on this Thing, and I don't want Nana to laugh at me. </p> <p> Today for lunch, I'm having branded Willow with Uwe (and possibly Belle). I've slotted extra Time for it because Uwe has never had a Cellin Meal before -- I'll probably be talking more than eating. 2006-12-10T05:17:38Z Nana and Tenchyo <br />Date: Sun Dec 10 00:17:45 2006<br /> <p> Date: 19:32-53:2613 </p> <p> Sometimes I don't understand my Friend. After helping in Cafeteria (mostly cleaning up), I went to the Plugcentre (later than I meant to), and had to wait anyhow because Nana was helping someone replace some equipment in their arm. I get along pretty well with Nana - my Family have never been much for traditional Living, and still sometime argue about it in Council, but sometime seeing Grey modding makes me feel ill. I sat in a Corner for a bit and played with the 3314 (Plugcentre always have fast Net connection), and then Nana came over and we went out for a walk. Grey usually don't vie for good Land - as they say, most of the time they don't live in this World anyhow, but near Eras they have a Forest and some Farmland, and Isa and I like to head out there to sketch. No matter how many time I see it, it's amazing to see her draw on her Pad without Stylus or Keypad - I know she doesn't need her Pad (it doesn't have any normal Input) - that it's just there to show Thing to me, but it's like Magic to see Grey in their Element. </p> <p> Unfortunately, we didn't make it to the Forest - partway there, Nana got a distant look in her Eye and started talking slower, and then told me that Security called about me. The Grey normally have no Problem with my being in their FactionSpace - it's by Nana's invitation, and unlike the 7th or the Rescs, they don't care much about Boundary (or Land). When the 10th was still around, according to my Family, they had connections to some Subfaction in the Grey promoting electronic Socialism, and closely collaborated on that Front, sharing Resource and Information more closely than any existing Faction. Those Time are past, but by Family or Friend, my guest Pass has never needed Renewal. I sometimes wonder if my old Ancestry (I think Nana has some Japanese Ancestry too) has something to do with why we get along so well. Heading back to the Gateway, we saw the beginning of a beautiful Sunset, regretting the lack of Draw Stroke defining and encouraging it. </p> <p> My cousin Tenchyo, the crazy Artist in my Family, was there in the Waiting Room - he somehow found out I was here and tried to enter Grey Lands to ruin my time with Nana. Naturally, they didn't let him in, and he was livid, sitting there in the waiting room. When Nana and I came near, he pulled a half-finished canvas Painting from his Bag, a horrid Caricature of Nana reaching from a Coffin, offering her electronic Arm to the Viewer, Viewer's Arm offering her Coin. Nana's eyes widened, Light flickered, and a water Sprinkler above Tenchyo turned on, covering him and the Painting. Predictably, he advanced on her in a Rage, and I had to stand between, listening to their political Argument. Tenchyo and his close Family (I'm a Cousin) were firmly in the 11th and instrumental in the Divide, and we've never agreed on matters of Technology or the Grey. Eventually, Nana exploded, shouting "That's the Problem with you Marxists - your love of Leisure and Tradition keeps you in Plato's Cave". Tenchyo shrugged at me, smiling, as if he had won a point. I hate it when Tenchyo and Nana argue - they always say Something horrible, and I need time away from both of them. I mouthed to Nana, "See You Later", and head back into our faction Land, leaving the other Two behind to shout or whatever. </p> <p> Tenchyo caught up with me on my way Home, and after some nudging, eventually understood that I didn't want to talk to him. I'm probably going to make Lo Mein Tonight, and then turn in early. I sometimes wish I had normal Friend and Family.. 2006-12-10T05:17:45Z Class <br />Date: Fri Dec 15 20:30:22 2006<br /> <p> Date: 09:01-54:2616 </p> <p> My Mother and Father are thinking about taking Vacation sometime soon, somewhere distant. I'm trying to recommend Somewhere interesting.. </p> <ul> <li>New Hayden, Australia - Few people go, and it'd be dark Outside, but It'd be interesting culturally and would be Something to talk about. This is kind of wildcardish.</li> <li>Auss - Many Packaged Tour, and everybody has been, but interesting and pretty. </li> <li>Amur - Poor Weather, might make Faction nervous, but Technology Museums are supposed to be incredible (I should ask Nana about this)</li> <li>Hadash Judea - Several Lev Goldfield Museum, culturally interesting</li> </ul> <p> I'm leaving out most Place without Faction presence/credit. 2006-12-16T01:30:22Z Class, revised <br />Date: Tue Dec 19 01:39:54 2006<br /> <p> Date: 14:41-56:2626 I forgot to actually talk about my class Schedule in last Entry. This Quarter, I'm taking: </p> <ul> <li>History 1007a: Europolitic of 27th and 26th Century</li> <li>Math 1201b: Introduction to Number Theory</li> <li>GenSci 1141b: Introduction to Fractal Numerics</li> <li>GenSci 1131a: Selection and Game Theory 1</li> <li>Psych 1101a: Psych Overview 1</li> <li>StatProb 1021b: Introduction to Statistics</li> <li>Philosophy 1033a: Focus on Lev Goldfield</li> </ul> <p> Next Quarter, I'm likely to take: </p> <ul> <li>History 1071a: Fall of Capitalism in Eurasia</li> <li>Perspective 1043b: Flexible Thinking Exercise</li> <li>Recreation 1010: Introductory Tennis</li> <li>Biology 1031b: Cell Biology Overview</li> <li>Modern Language 1401a: Introductory Judisch</li> <li>Recreation 1061: Introductory Cooking</li> </ul> <p> I'm not that interested by Tennis (I'm a bit clumsy), but Uwe and Astrid talked me into It. Judisch looks pretty tough.. Cooking should be fine - I'm hoping to learn to cook some family Recipe. As Tarsa specialises in Meal with Mustard, it would be good to know how to make some. If need be, I'll get Help from Tenchyo, but hopefully not! 2006-12-19T06:39:54Z
