This year I've been busy!
In November I put money in serenius1221's expired parking meter (14 points). In May I put gum in bocco's hair (-12 points). Last Friday I caught a purse-snatcher who stole plugin56's purse (30 points). In August on a flight to Bangladesh, I stole the emergency flight information card (-40 points). In September I saved a busload of nuns in Angola (326 points).
Overall, I've been nice (318 points). For Christmas I deserve a Lego set!
I respect John Stewart not because he affirms my beliefs or because his political commentary is particularly strong, but because he can talk to anyone. He can talk to Jimmy Carter about woodworking, Bill O'Reilly about politics without slitting the bastard's pompous-ass throat, and Kira Knightly about how fabulous her rack is with the same degree of composure and charm. One day, I hope to be half the conversationalist that he is.
Next semester, I'm taking courses that involve learning facts, and I couldn't be more excited. I don't have a decent fact learning course this semester, and I think that's at the root of why I feel like crap right now. I've had a lot of theory this semester. Actually, that's putting it mildly: except for Latin, everything I've done has revolved around contemporary theory, which in addition to being enormously depressing, leaves one questioning whether he has learned a damn thing in his semester's worth of books, papers, and exams. Fortunately, next semester should make up for it: I've got a history course on the Byzantine Empire, Music Theory (which at this point is more fact based), more Latin, a course on Samuel Beckett for which I am super excited even if it might delve into some heavy theory, and something called "Politics in the Courtroom," which just sounds fun.
Basically, this semester has shot its load, and it's time to have some pillow talk and hope that the next time can hold out for a little while longer.
But hey! Rob Corddry is coming on Friday and that's pretty cool.
