This is a little slow in the beginning, but its really cool toward the end. Its interesting how the first "person" to tempt her does sort of the same thing that Jesus does but shows her the darker side. Its a little scary.

Twas the night before finals,
and all through the college,
The students were praying for last minute knowledge.

Most were quite sleepy,
but none touched their beds,
While visions of essays danced in their heads.

Out in the lobby,
a few were still drinking,
And hoping that *Starbucks*
would loosen their thinking.

In my own dorm room,
I had been pacing,
And dreading exams

I soon would be facing.
My roommate was speechless,
her nose in her books,
And my comments to her
drew unfriendly looks.

I drained all the coffee,
and brewed a new pot,
No longer caring
that my nerves were shot.

I stared at my notes,
but my thoughts were all muddy,
My eyes went a blur,
I just couldn't study.

"Some pizza might help,"
I said with a shiver,
But each place I called
refused to deliver.

I'd nearly concluded that life was too cruel,
With futures depending on grades had in school.

When all of a sudden,
our door opened wide,
And Patron Saint Put-It-Off ambled inside.

His spirit was careless,
his manner was mellow,
When all of a sudden,
he started to bellow:

"On Cliff Notes!
On Crib Notes!
On last year's exams!
On Wingit and Slingit,
and last minute crams!"

His message delivered,
he vanished from sight,
But we heard him laughing outside in the night.

"Your teachers have pegged you,
so just do your best.
Happy Finals to all,
and to all, a Good Test!"

Forgive me

I guess I lied. I am posting something else, I mean other than the st. finals thing. Finals started today and it was quite a frantic morning!

I got up really early this morning (after going to bed at about 3) to study for the 3 tests I had today (well, study more the I had before )but I forgot to keep track of the time. My first exam started at 8:30 and when I looked at the clock, it was 8:25. I got up and ran out the door to class.

Today wasnt the best day to be late because it is slippy out there! Im lucky I didnt slip and become really late!While I was dashing through the snow, I decided to call Katie and catch her up to speed on my day. Im not sure what the message sounds like but its gotta be pretty funny. I was practically running to Egan, trying not to slip and break my neck while leaving the I said to her voicemail "this is not an ideal situation."
Well, to make a long story short (too late), I got there at 8:32 and they hadnt even started yet, so I was fine.

The last dance...

So, I thought Id do one more real post before the semester ends. I mean, I might take a break from studying to post a link, but I dont consider that real posting for me.

Finals start soon. Actually I have three the day after tomorrow. Should be scrumtralesent.

Phone conversation with my Mom about studying:

"Ok, you go study." - Mom
"No, Yugoslavia....hahahaha"(insane geeky laughter)- me

ok, it really wasnt that funny, but Ive gotta get all of this finals week excitement out now before the nazis arrive.

If my readers (Me, my Mom, my Dad, my brothers, and occasionally a few others) dont recall, my dorm is going into what we call Nazi hours tomorrow. This means no talking in any common areas (hallways,bathrooms, lobbies....) and if you must talk in your room, do it quietly. If an RA stands next to your door and hears you, youre talking too loudly. You might say this is a little ridiculous, I disagree. I think its completely mental(Sorry, Im talking like Ron Weasly now)

well, what can ya do? you can shut up and run from the nazis! baaaaaa!(
sorry its a joke from teeth- the narrator abuses the audience a lot and then does this thing with his hands to let you know hes joking...anyway)

Ill probably be posting that Night Before Finals thing again. Cya!

Santa's wild ride!

Wow! Thats really interesting and everything, but couldnt we use the time it took to figure that out do something more worthwhile? Like, how does the Easter bunny do it?

Its a cute idea, dont get me wrong. Its just that it seems like its more of a problem for college students interested in that stuff to figure out as a bonus project.

Oh, and Santa can totally make it in that there. lol.

I think I posted this already....

If they know of him at all,
many folks think Ben Stein is
just a quirky actor/comedian
who talks in a monotone. He's also a very intelligent attorney who knows how to put ideas and words together in such a way as to sway juries and make people think clearly.

The following was written by
Ben Stein and recited by him on CBS Sunday Morning Commentary.

I am a Jew, and every single one of my ancestors was Jewish. And it does not bother me even a little bit
when people call those beautiful lit up, bejeweled trees Christmas trees. I don't feel threatened. I don't feeldiscriminated against. That's what they are:
Christmas trees.

It doesn't bother me a bit when people say, 'Merry Christmas' to me. I don't think they are slighting me or getting ready to put me in a ghetto. In fact, I kind of like it. It shows that we are all brothers and sisters celebrating this happy time of year. It doesn't bother
me at all that there is a manger scene on display at a key intersection near my beach house in Malibu If people want a creche, it's just as fine with me as is
the Menorah a few hundred yards away.

I don't like getting pushed around for being a Jew, and I don't think Christians like getting pushed around for being Christians. I think people who believe in God
are sick and tired of getting pushed around, period.

I have no idea where the concept came from that
America is an explicitly atheist country. I can't find it in the Constitution, and I don't like it being shoved down my throat.

Or maybe I can put it another way: where did the idea come from that we should worship Nick and Jessica and we aren't allowed to worship God as we understand Him?

I guess that's a sign that I'm getting old, too.

But there are a lot of us who are wondering where Nick and Jessica came from and where the America we knew went to.
(Thanks for the e-mail Mom)

this is old but it still makes me laugh

"Award show banter is not pablum..reality..television celebrates the human condition..(rolls eye) by illuminating what's extraordinary in the ordinary person"
