After tonight, I have 5 weeks in the books in my eight week semester. Thanks to the wonders and teachings of my stats class, I think that puts me about 62.5% of the way done with the semester. But, truth be told, one of my classes essentially ends a week early so I've got to be damn near 65% or so - woooohoooo! I have a big project due Tuesday and should be able to keep up from there.
A few observations: I never used crib notes before to skip reading but that has turned out to be essential for my lit class. I have been able to skip a couple readings and still keep up by using the crib notes (or sparknotes, as they are known online). Feels a little weird and I'm a little guilted about it but I suspect I'll get over it :-)
Our home has been taken over by Harry Potter mania. The better half checked out the movie last weekend and is getting the book tomorrow. A town nearby gets nuts and decorates their entire downtown like the town where the books are set. People are in costume and it all leads up to the opening of the doors to the bookstore at midnight where people get the newly released book. It's really kinda like a Star Trek convention or something similar, not that I've ever been to either actually. Anywho, if I wake up with a lightning bolt on my forehead, babe, you'll know what happened.
Musical notes - the better half is journeying to see Rocco DeLuca this weekend. I'm looking fwd to hearing about it.
I'm really digging Hey There Delilah by Plain White T's. Very catchy little ditty, although I suspect I may not quite be in their target demo.
Smashing Pumpkins - holy smokes! great new CD, I will review it here shortly. Good to have them back (at least those who most likely played their own instruments).
Possibly the worst song I've ever heard - The Editors - Smokers Outside the Hospital Doors. Man this song sucks. Heard it a couple times on XM and just couldn't take it any more.
Other - big poker tourney this weekend, my first social event since weekend before 4th of July. Looking forward to a good performance, I'm high in the standings in this poker league on the strength of a 3rd place finish in our last event.
And I've signed up for a triathlon, takes place in a couple weeks. Someone who participated previously said it's very easy as far as triathlons go so I'm hoping it will be good. I've done a pretty mediocre job of staying on top of the running since class has started so this will keep me motivated.
OK, enough of my nonsense. Bring on the limerick!!!!
Said Miss Farrow, on one of her larks,
'Sex is more fun in bed than in parks.
You feel more at ease;
Your butt doesn't freeze
And passers-by don't make remarks.'
Until next time.
