Bluebooks, Pens and NBC Suits

  • Early morning test?
    • check
  • Too many people crammed into the lecture hall? I know all these people didn't come to the lectures
    • check
  • unexpectedly warm weather leading to sweaty sticky atmosphere
    • check
  • Dude behind me who seriously needed about a bottle and a half of Bean-o before coming to class?
    • Oh, dear lord, check.
Seriously, my eyes were watering. I don't even know what was in my bluebook.

If One Used A Calender, Perhaps...

It's a funny thing when one thinks that one has a big exam tomorrow at 8am, only to find out it's actually Friday at 8am. If, for example, one is in the middle of a nasty cram session, one might lose a lot of the anxious enthusiasm for studying.

One might, anyway.

And I Decided

That one big link dump is better than two little link dumps, and rather than bring that one up I decided to post mine here.

  1. Another, even more insidious game
    1. Also, for Jayish - a Kaboom! clone. Do you still have an old Atari paddle?
  2. Top 15 most unintentionally funny panels in old comic books
  3. Another silly get to know yourself quiz - pick the photo that you feel best represents the word they give you.
  4. Make your own cheap light box! I may just try this one out :)

It May Not Seem Like It, But,

I am working.

But here's a game to play.

Connect the squares. They grow each time you click on them (a maximum of three times). Once they are connected, they can't grow. You can't click on twice in a row.

There was another one, but I lost the link.

Notes From The Underground. But Aboveground.

I'm still completely unenthusiastic about the paper I need to finish up in the next couple of days, but here's the fun thing - I'm getting really excited about another paper that I'm starting to put together. I don't want to jinx it, but it's a nice big juicy topic that no one has really gotten in to yet. I'm still looking around to see if there are any hidden monographs out there that have already done it, but I think the topic will be mine all mine!

Also, as a good recorder of random items, I report to you the graffiti on today's library cell which focuses on the dangers of Mary J:
  1. 4/20!!!!!!!!
  2. 4:20!!!!!
  3. Fucking potheads
  4. Albert, Mary J is the Satan (unclear - crossed out) devil's smoke. All of smokers will burn in Hell w/ rapists, murderers and Hitler.
    1. Yaright.
    2. Thank you for your advice, Mrs. Doubtfire
    3. How in hell do you equate pot smokers w/ rapists & Hitler?
    4. Be careful with pot kids, it's very dangerous because it's so subtle. It can get out of control and ruin you
      1. How?
  5. Shut up!
    1. Turn around!
  6. Hello!
  7. I love you deformed lips.
  8. Shut up and get back to work.

Dude. Seriously.

Notes to/regarding freaky guy who moved into the library cell behind me:

  1. General library etiquette frowns on yelling out "Holy Fuck! Why isn't this working?"
  2. Either you are just banging randomly on your keyboard or you type faster than humans should be able to type.
  3. That weird grunting sound you make with every third breath or so is uber creepy
  4. Answering your phone in the library is rude and all, but understandable. However, it's especially bad when I can hear your end and her end of the conversation. Also, she seemed quite ticked. You're in trouble.
