So, since I normally wouldn't need my key to go from my room to Franny's then back again in the course of 5 minutes, I left it in my room, along with everything else. As it turns out, the elevator breaks while I'm downstairs. I take the other elevator up to six to take the stairs up to nine. As usual, the elevator is broken down on the sixth floor--stupid bastard freshmen. So, I hike up another three stories until I hit my floor, which is when I realize that, *gasp*, I don't have my key! Why the hell would I have needed it? I was only going to be gone for five minutes! So now I'm downstairs in the lab, killing time, because I can't get to the stuff I really need to work on.

More about the 3:30 p.m. lecture:

Animal Liberation: From Stubbs to Delacroix

Artists, scientists, and all humans can appreciate the closeness and relevance of their fields in this talk by art historian Robert Rosenblum, professor of fine arts, New York University, and curator, Guggenheim Museum, New York. Rosenblum discusses the complex and loaded topic of artists’ portrayals of animals and heralds the trials and tribulations of humankind’s quest to define a role in the animal kingdom during the 18th century. This thinking inspired the realization that humans could share emotions with “lower” species and the establishment of anti-cruelty groups-topics still relevant today.

So, as a member of S.P.iR.iT., I get e-mails that other students do not, naturally.  Today's gem is that: "The S.P.iR.iT. website is now up!"

There are even virtual tours!  So, this means that along with the lies that get spewed all over the place, they can make the campus look tons better than it actually does.

But hey, anything to get more students, right?

The first/second floor of Grace Library is not the Quiet Floor. There are floors above us, say the fourth floor back by the windows where no one ever is, where you could study.

I understand that you're stressed, but saying that it's inexcuseable that the non-quiet library floor is not quiet is rather like cursing the rain for being wet.

Now why is it that a SISTER OF MERCY president would allow this, yet a LAYPERSON would not?

This school sucks!!!!!!!

I did my degree audit in NOVEMBER and they waited until TODAY to tell my advisor that I'm missing one class.  Because apparently, you can't have one class cover two areas.

Great, my only other hope is to take a second CAP class this semester just so that I can fucking graduate.

Does anybody have the inside scoop on what happened in the cafeteria last night? I wasn't there for the slip heard around campus, but I did see the woman afterwards and she looked fine to me.

This is a self-promotional thing than anything. I need money to get to Chicago to see my fiancee. I plan on taking the train and paying for hotel expenses. I won't be going for a month or two but money will still be tight. So I am offering services to you! Yay! Be joyous!

Portraits for Twenty Dollars

I will draw you or someone else (or whatever, I guess) either by using a picture or a live drawing.
I will use a medium to your choice (of course, if I have it - and I have a lot).
Any done on canvas will cost extra according to the size.
I require ten dollars before I start drawing and then I'll take (or be paid) the other ten when I finish.
If you don't like it, I'll give you five dollars and probably give the drawing to you anyway.

Tarot Card Readings for Ten Dollars

There are 78 cards in a deck and I do not have them all memorized and still need the aid of guide books.
You'll get half back if you are not satisfied with your reading.

And I can assure you that all proceeds will go toward travel expenses to Chicago.

I'm in the computer lab. You know, trying to concentrate and do my work like a good little student. (To those who know me, ignore that last sentence.) Well, I just love when I can't concentrate because the person all the way on the other side of the lab has her music up so loud that I CAN HEAR EVERY WORD FROM ACROSS THE ROOM EVEN THOUGH SHE HAS HER HEADPHONES ON. It doesn't help that she's listening to some crap hiphop with whiny voices and a louder-than-fuck bass. I hope she goes deaf. Then I can dance on her corpse.
