Why is it that blogs are so much easier to write than papers, even papers that are mostly written? Or is that writing about conflict management is just inherently repellent? Somehow, it will get done, though it may take a few more hours before I start to feel the urgency. It'll get done. Right?

I picked up X-Men: the Last Stand at the library yesterday. Which is good for the following reasons 1) I will get to see the parts (or it is part? I guess there is more than one) I liked 2) I won't have to think about how I paid money for it during all the many parts that make me crazy. One day I will have to make a list of grievances, but it is not this day.

Every morning I walk past a bunch of different flowery trees and bushes, and I only know what two of them are. But there is one bush type in particular next to the BCC* that has little white flowers and it smells heavenly. One day I will get a book about Indiana foliage, but today is not the day for that either.

In other news...going to Seattle this weekend, hurray! Some small part of me wishes I could just hang around for the weekend and revel in my lack of homework and just veg out. But I know that small part of me is awesum** and will change its mind as soon as I get on the plane. Besides, I have a whole summer afterwards to revel in my lack of homework and just veg out. So take that, awesum small part!

*Is that the abbreviation? I don't even know but I know all those letters are in the building's name.

**Is not the same as awesome.


  1. Nice use of awesum!

    Where is the BCC?

  2. The Black Culture Center...across the street from Wells to the south. That's the name right? Whatever, it's not like I walked by that building every day for 8 months. .. Or something.

  3. Ok, so maybe I'm ignorant, but I don't know what awesum means if not an odd spelling of awesome. Also, it's not in my dictionary! (Yes, I'm enough of a nerd to look it up.) Please elaborate!

    It's nice to know you didn't like X-Men 3 either, but for a couple bits. I really liked the bit where Magneto stops the truck full of prisoners after tossing the escort cars over his head, though I'm not sure it trumps the coolest prison break I've seen in a movie, where he escapes in X-Men 2. I liked Ian McKellen in the whole movie, in fact, and felt bad as he tried so hard to deliver such awful lines.

    "That's why the pawns go first!" Doesn't that kind of go against the whole thing he's been trying to achieve? The reason he's my favorite villain is that I can so easily sympathize with his motives. His evil isn't the result of some mad experiment gone wrong, like so many villains. Then again, my entire knowledge of comic books is from these movies, I tried but couldn't get into comics.

    Like the Star Wars Prequels and The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy movie, I pretend X-Men 3 didn't happen.

  4. X-Men 3? What's that?
