The 15 minute rule that we have here was taken in to effect for the first time this semester, and only the second time in my college career. What, praytell, is the 15 minute rule? Well, good people, I shall tell you of the 15 minute rule. The 15 minute rule states that if the professor does not come to class within 15 minutes you are free to leave, as the class is therefore considered cancelled and there can be no consequences because, hey, that was the teacher's fault. So, today, my early class, the only class I particularly like to attend, despite the earliness, which is often the downside... Matt, the professor (we rarely call teachers by their last name here... it just sort of works out that way) didn't show up. We waited 15 minutes and then we left. I was pleased, but at the same time I wasn't because I like Matt and I hope that he and his baby and his wife are all okay. Matt is frequently late, sometimes bordering on very late, but he has never MISSED the entire class period. So yeah.

In other news, I watched Smallville and Everwood last night. Smallville is horrible. Honestly, horrid show, people really shouldn't watch that crap. I intend on watching next week as well, because of the fact that Aquaman is going to be on, and any chance I have to mock Aquaman is a chance that I'm going to take. I mean, come on, it's AQUAMAN. How can you not laugh at Aquaman?

Everwood has gone downhill so much. It's boring, it isn't cute anymore, it isn't the same show it once was. It saddens me, the extreme dip in quality that it has taken. Gilmore Girls remains good, though I don't find myself enjoying this season as much as the others, probably because of the lack of Lor/Ror togetherness. Desperate Housewives is kinda boring, it's still good, don't get me wrong, but it isn't as good as it was before. House still won't be on for two or three weeks, and I grieve. Commander In Chief isn't a comedic show, doesn't mean it isn't good it's just not very amusing. Reba's still decent, though.

More Stolen Crap

The week has ended, and I am glad. I'm still EXTREMELY bored, but this is par for the course. Come Tuesday Fire Emblem will come out, and that will help with the pain, at least for a little while, but any ease on the pain is worth taking, let me tell you. Plus, it's Fire Emblem, and they have people who turn into animals, or animals that turn into people, one of the two. I probably won't use them, unless they have a tiger, a white tiger, then that person shall be in the party, just because. Now, for some random tidbits-

Apparently, Kim's decided that she no longer wants to actually see if people who want into Hellbound are competent, and is just letting everyone who applies in regardless of their reason. There was this one person who couldn't even spell simple words... she lets said person in. Crazy woman. She's apparently been cloaked all weekend, but she showed herself now. And watch as the group becomes infested with even more untalented hacks, because there aren't enough of them already.

Rebecca, a girl in my Chicano Lit class, was talking about how she doesn't want to watch Gilmore Girls, but I told her that if she didn't then it would be the ultimate blasphemy, so, come Monday, I shall give her Gilmore Girls season 1, and if she does not love, then she does not love, but if she does not watch then she is a fool. I don't see how people can not love, especially since she has a sense of humor like mine, so that at least means that we're somewhat similar like that. And, before you start thinking about anything, crazy people, she's got herself a man.

I find myself stuck at a specific spot in the Opus version three. Didn't write any of it today, probably won't, although that can't be certain one way or the other because, you know, you never know. I know what I want, I know where I want to go, but at the same time I can't have everything happen one after another, I need to build it up and then deal with the aftermath before I spring each and every 'big' event on the characters. It's better this way, I acknowledge and accept it, but, dammit, I don't really know what to do in the middle.

I hate the fact that I can't find a writing group that seems marginally competent these days. It irks me SO much, and then the knowledge that I certainly can't do one myself because I would set the bar too high comes into play. Damn my need for competent writing groups, damn the need to hell!

I've had my wallpaper for like a year and a half, I want a new one. Sadly, Solid is NEVER EVER up, it is always dead, or only up for two seconds and then dead again. If anything will get me out of the scene it's that fucking site and its unreliability. Bastards, all of them.

I'm still bored, and then I decided to steal something to help take the boredom way. Like many stolen things, it was taken from snowflake_girl A random, pointless meme, hidden under the cut so that people who don't want to deal with it don't have to.

I just went to look at the things I need to do before I graduate. There is a small chance, a REALLY small chance, but still a chance, that I could be done with everything that I need to have done before I get those two pieces of paper that say 'now you can go and put these on a mantle or something and stare at them while you get a job that has absolutely nothing to do with the degree that you worked five years to gain!' If I knew that it was coming I wouldn't be so afraid, but I seriously thought that I would have to wait until the end of 2006 before I had to, you know, start thinking about going out and joining society and doing all that good shit. So, the small possibility that I may have to do it half a year sooner... not good. I don't even know what I want to do, all I know is that I don't want to have to know what I want to do yet!!!

But, odds are higher that I won't be able to graduate till I intended, hopefully.

Random tidbits-


Reba was amusing, and a bit sad. Hurricane survivors and all. If I were a better person I would be motivated into doing something. Don't get me wrong, I hate that it happened, I hate that so many people are suffering and did suffer and all that, but yeah. Steve Howie (Van) got his hair cut, and it looks much better. That mop of hair on his head earlier in the season was just... blah. I love Van, he so funny. And Reba. And Cheyanne. And Barbara Jean. The show really is quite decent. I've seen funnier, but, for what it delivers, Reba has never failed to at least entertain me.

That said, Living With Fran would be more appealing if that Ben Feldman guy wasn't on. I dislike him.
