But the Nobel Prize Selection Committee isn't invited.


Louisville City Hall. Name that classical order.


I'm ending a very full weekend that followed a very full week with a blog. I spent most of today working on a paper proposal in the MUP lab, punctuated by an hour at the gym and a dinner break at Wendy's with Katharine and Lisa. There was also some Powerpoint work done on the presentation accompanying the Theory paper due tomorrow, and I really do hate .ppt. I just ... don't jibe with creating that kind of media; Prezi is somewhat more my style. Anyhow, my paper proposal is going well, sort of feeling like the project that proves Why I Came to Grad School.

Other fun times: went out to the Irish Pub with lots of MUPs on Thursday, made plans with Tall Matt to head to Aut Bar after that, but he suddenly disappeared so I was heading up the street alone when he called to ask if I could retrieve his coat because he was not being allowed to reenter. So I did my good deed, then we spent maybe 20 minutes at the gay bar (got there after 1:45); still, like that place a lot. Saturday was a football power hour at Abby-Amanda-Billy-Danny-Maria-Nick-Scott's house, then Scott, Danny and I went out with S's sister and her friends. First to the Jolly Pumpkin, then The Arena, and I was kind of a hot mess but had tons of fun. While walking home I stopped in to BTB for a huge chimichanga, and man I had enough leftover for a full lunch today. Crazy. Maybe I should cut down on the late night burritos and Wendy's. Or not.

And for 10 sentences on current events: I'm happy Obama won the Nobel Prize and think it's funny that suddenly so many people are experts on the parameters for selection. Get over it, be proud; this is an honor for our country, truly, and he does have the potential for great good. Give him a chance, and if he doesn't deliver you know what to do in 2012. The only downside is that Morgan Tsvangirai is truly awesome and was definitely deserving of the award. As for the Equality March, I really wanted to be there but couldn't have possibly broken away to DC this weekend. I'm really happy to hear how many of my NC friends were able to go, and I want to hear your stories about it (particularly the HRC paintballing, LOL).

Fall Break?! You've barely started school. As John Stossel would say, give me a break! (Pun intended). ;-)

The break is proportional to the amount of time we've been in school; hence we only get two days off classes. :P But I'm taking the Friday before to make it a 5-day weekend.

Admiring architecture is a little side hobby of mine. Love to photograph wonderfully beautiful examples of such, when I'm able to find them. Sometimes quite hard in South Carolina/Georgia. They are there (like in Charleston or Savannah) but it it rare. Guess would also explain my love of photographing cemeteries. It's like architecture on a miniature scale. Especially tombs and mausoleums.
