- Fr. Cobb hasn't taken the Lord's name in vain or sworn yet, but he's a lot funnier than I realized he would be. Especially when it comes to analyzing the advertisements in The New Yorker
. Who knew page ads of cars were hilarious?Modernism in Art and Lit
- Dr. Tung, in the meantime, has said "shit" several times every day. It's kind of hilarious. Today he bounced around the front of the room in a button-up shirt and sweater-vest. There's just, I dunno, something fantastic about that to me. As I told Fr. Cobb last year, I like Tung because he's engaging.Buddhist Philosophy
- Frustrating. Sort of. Yesterday we were still going Buddhism 101-type things and covering some vocab. Which is good if a little boring. However, the professor only actually spelled out about a third of the words we talked about, making it very difficult to take notes on. How can I know that what I'm reading is what we've talked about when I don't know if the pronunciation is going to match the spelling?
Grr. Yesterday I got fed up with it so the whole second hour was devoted to keeping my head down and writing (original and fanfiction). It makes the time go a lot faster and I really am not missing anything (so far).
Tonight we're going to see Doubt
at the Seattle Rep. I'm really looking forward to it.
This last weekend Mom came over and I got to go shopping. Got some seriously nice things (like a snazzy jacket and shoes) and some seriously silly things. How can I not get the only Colonel O'Neill action figure at Suncoast? I mean, come on. He was all alone. He needed buying. Now I need Daniel Jackson to go along with him. This will lead to moments of intense immaturity on my part (and the part of my roommate). But, hey, when you're a senior in college you need moments of intense immaturity.
Back to watching BSG. Only three episodes left and I'll be caught up! Except for the webisodes.
