boulevards that straddle this town ... I no longer crave the sterility
of Borders or Stoneridge Mall. I'd rather take the hustle-and-bustle

The Hawaiian shirts, sandals and shorts go away, and the shelves
are instead filled with pants, parkas, jackets, scarves, and other
warm wooly looking things. I understand that these are the items
of clothing that the fashion world has deemed appropriate for
the fall and winter months. There's just one problem: this is
$$$$ SAN DIEGO. We are not Boston. This is not Chicago, Detroit,
or Minneapolis. I don't care how cold it is here, because it is
NEVER cold enough to wear a scarf in San Diego. Ever. Bring back
the $$$$ shorts, t-shirts and sandals! -Student

go out and get a life. -Prof. Elkan

considering UCSD has the lowest percentage of cute girls of any
college I've ever been to... well...wait, nevermind. I looked
at ITT tech's OC campus with my friend one time. that was worse
I think I realized I was too tired to study productively when
I started writing my function "is_uppercase_number()"
for my compilers project... lol...wtf is an upper case number?
anyhow, i'm taking that as my cue that it's bedtime. goodnight
