Everybody's Working for the Weekend (and weekdays)

Ah, work. Over the holidays, as I played Xbox 'til my eyes bled, you seemed so far away. But now, its time to buckle down and get things done. Starting with the Political Science midterm on the 31st, it's one test/quiz/assignment/paper (collectively known as a twizzingmestaper) after another. Can't complain though - the great thing is, all the material is, well, interesting. I'd rather be learning about Victorian England in Dickens' era or ancient Greek drinking songs then, say, deriving the derivative of a cosine or pinpointing something on a microscope slide (no offense to math or science fans). The next few weeks will be like an everlasting gobstopper of education - tough, yes, but delicious all the same.
In other news, the Garnet and Gold production of The Wizard of Oz starts this Thursday, and the midnight movie this Friday is Primeval, the touching tale of a man-eating crocodile. Looks like a good weekend.

Current Music: The Shins - "Sleeping Lessons"

Hmmm...Methinks I could use a few of those. The Shins' new album Wincing the Night Away is superb, judging by what I've heard. (Fair warning: expect further expressions of music geekery in future posts, as 2007 looks to be one of the best years in music ever)
