I forgot about doing homework.
Kept getting sidetracked, and now it's past midnight.
When it's past midnight I feel like I should be winding down for bed, not ramping up for hours of homework.

stupid tuesdays.

My body didn't particularly care for the mere 5 hours of sleep I allowed it last night after having been spoiled with several consecutive 9+ hour nights.

On the day of the week that I should be most worried to get to all my classes on time, I just felt like sleeping through them all.

But I got up. It sucked. I took my scalding/ freezing/ scalding/ freezing shower. I rode to class on my bike in the freezing temperature, without my gloves (I lost them somewhere a few days ago). I made it through Physics tutorial.

Classes to go: Geography, Music, and a 3 hour physics lab.

I'm going to fall asleep.


Read this interview with Dubya. Even ignoring how poorly he speaks (most disturbingly, starting the majority of his sentences with the word "And"), read how arrogant he his about his new position:

Tom Brokaw: And some forms of — birth control even. What if he appoints a Solicitor General who will make the case of the government before the U.S. Supreme Court who shares his feelings, would that make you unhappy?
George W. Bush: But you understand who’s the president? He understands who — who’s going to occupy the chair in the Oval Office. John’s a team player when it comes to that.


Tom Brokaw: President Clinton is going out of office with an approval rate of 64 percent, higher than Ronald Reagan or any other outgoing president in modern memory. That says the country likes what he’s been doing.
George W. Bush: Well, maybe so, but he’s not going to be the president on January 20. I am.


I walked out of music class, bored, tired, and annoyed, leaving Blythe in there ... I feel bad about that. But GRRR ... stupid girls need to shut the fuck up. Plus all we do in that class is review the homework for 35 minutes, which took only 4 minutes to do. Not worth my time.

Physics lab is easy today, says Dana ... hope that's true.

After lab I have to:
  • do physics homework
  • nap?
  • Innertube basketball game
  • physics homework
  • get to bed early?
I'm so tired.

Interesting things

My Tuesday Hell is almost done. I only have a few physics problems remaining.

Interesting things:

  • back from my innertube basketball game ... we won! we were down a bunch in the first half, but our offensive picked up in the second half and we smoked 'em.
  • lost my keys while I was there. we did an exhaustive locker room, car, parking lot, and bleacher search, until we finally found them in the bottom of the pool. (which makes sense, of course, since keys don't float)
  • even more interesting, my remote car opener still seems to work (the lights go on) I haven't tried to open the car yet, though ... I assume it's fine.
time to finish physics homework. I actually really enjoy physics homework, it's just that I enjoy other things so much more. (my big revelation from earlier)
