In January, I picked up an external Zip drive for my then dying computer. As luck would have it, they were giving away web cams to everyone who bought a USB 250 meg Zip drive. Like Ralphie in "The Christmas Story," I sent off for my prize. It came in today and it beats the hell out of a Little Orphan Annie decoder ring.

I know there are hundreds of thousands -- maybe millions -- of web cammers out there, but this is new ground for me... and, people, it's pretty cool. From time to time, I still think that it's cool as shit that I can chat with people around the world on the Internet (and for free). My new toy adds a brand new dimension to that. Not only can people talk to me, they can see me, too.

Yeah, I know... Sometimes, it takes so very little to amaze me. Now go and drink your Ovaltine.

Did you know that March is almost over? Yeesh. I've only got one "whole" month of school left... April. After that, it's a week in May and it'll all be over 'cept for the crying.

Speaking of, we got grades back from a test in Geology today. The class average was 48. I made a 70... the second highest grade in the class (some guy made a 72). This is geology one-oh-frikkin-one. It's not supposed to be rocket science, is it? Grades like this (with graduation looming on the horizon) worry me. Sure, I've got a C in the class, but some jobs are wanting to see my grades and C's in freshman level classes can't possibly look good.
