Ah, the second week of school. Normally, homework would be going by now. I actually do have plenty of reading that I have yet to even start. Why is this? Some strange kind of denial and unwillingness to do homework. While this is causing some minor guilt, it's obviously not changing my behavior. So I'll just continue to take long naps and look at random internet sites. After all, there's always tomorrow.
So. Yesterday was a landmark. I bought beef. Raw beef. This is the first time I have bought any kind of raw meat. Naturally, some confusion on cooking ensued but I successfully made myself some Hamburger Helper, complete with hamburger. This is also a landmark as the second time I've made such "food." Sometimes food from a box is the best kind of food.
I just found out that J.K. Rowling's favorite painter is Caravaggio. Ah, the woman has fine taste.
So today in Medieval art we talked about the cult of saints. To make a long story short, it centers around this obsession of relics. This got me to thinking that even now, eons later, not only does this cult still exist (less feverish though) but there's also a cult of celebrity. How else do you explain someone playing X amount of money for a grilled cheese sandwich that supposedly has Mary's face on it? Or paying (way) too much money for a cup of water Elvis drank out of (shouldn't this water be evaporated by now? Was it cryogenically frozen?)? Anyone seen the show Totally Obsessed? I rest my case.
I think it's time for me to continue not doing homework and read some more Fellowship. Over and out.
