Good news! Yes yes. I now have three professors who have agreed to be references for me on my grad school application. They're all three very well respected and are at Eastern, which is where I go now and will hopefully go to grad school, so that ought to get me in good. That's a load off of my mind. It has to help give me points when one is even the last Graduate Advisor and one has been around forever, although he's retiring after this quarter. And the other is Dr. Finnie, aka Big Daddy, who everyone loves. Soooo.. I have a better shot than I might. Just need the $35 to send it in and I'm all set. Then it's only waiting. Of course, that's the hard part.

Today was a decent enough day. I couldn't force myself to go to my first class, though. It was freezing outside and raining and it was way across campus. And I was still groggy somewhat from Vicodin, so I just crashed in the PUB for an extra hour. That stuff just wipes me sometimes. Then it was off to Chicano Studies for the few minutes it took me to take a 20 question multiple choice test. It went all right, not great but not bad. Then after that it was Dr. Logan's class, where we discussed Mark Twain's Pudd'nhead Wilson. I liked the book, but then I'm not sure I could dislike anything by Mark Twain. He simply rocks. Must try to read more of him during summer break.

Well, I must get to the dishes, lucky me. What a dreary chore. Ah well, a couple quizzes first, then back to the drudgery.

Oh yeah, straight on with that one. I could lose myself in the ocean.

I think Jason is obsessed with Metallica. Mike seems to have influenced him. Not that I'm complaining. I like them, too. It's cute when he decides to dance to it and then gets to looking all tough. What a kid. Gotta love him.

Well, almost half through the week. It hasn't been too bad. Got my appeal off to the financial aid people, I should get my rejection soon enough. Not that I care all that much. It would be nice to have spending money, and I really would like to buy some new clothes (I'm so tired of the usual jeans and tee shirt shit), but if this was gonna happen, this was the right quarter for it. I'll hopefully get my application for grad school off really soon, too. Just have to wait for John's paycheck to get the $35. I'm not sure if I've missed the deadline due to lack of funds, though. If I have, I can just skip fall quarter and go in the winter. I'll be bummed if there's something I really want to take in the fall, but ah well. I know that Dr. Urcia is offering a class on Chaucer in the winter, I just don't want to miss that. I so love Chaucer and would love the chance to delve more deeply into the Canterbury Tales.

If my arm doesn't start feeling better here soon, I'm afraid I'm going to have to go to the doctor again. The pain's moved down the arm some and those anti-inflammatory pills aren't doing much for me. The pain pills have, though. Boy, do they make me goofy. Last night was a trip and a half and reaffirmed that I am better off not drinking alcohol. Being drunk would just be wrong. Especially if it affects my talking the way this does. I can hardly shut up. No comments from the peanut gallery, either. Yes Becky, I mean you.

I do have one more thing to say before posting a couple more quizzes, though. Mark Twain was a literary genius. Yup yup. Gotta love him. I do love Lit classes where I get to read neat stuff and get graded on it.

Bitch Slapper!

What kind of non-weapon related attack move are you?

I would've preferred punch or something, but ah well. Slapping never was my style. Doesn't leave much of a mark most of the time.

Sounds cool to me! The second movie will be out on DVD on Friday. That's good news indeed.
