feels like it’s come to this again.

time for an update!

Portfolio status: deadline extension.

Paper status (the paper referred to in the previous post): done.

Revisions status: not done. (You know, undone is not really the opposite of done.)

TA status: -fist pumps- really good. Good class, cool topic (early modern: Descartes through early Kant), great lecturer, but lots more work than last semester’s assignment. TWO discussion sections, enrollment’s at 89, bleargg.

Classes: so far so good. But school started Wednesday, so there are still two seminars I’ll likely take that haven’t yet met.

Um, I made chicken tenders from scratch tonight.  Well, not completely from scratch, but from scratch as opposed to just heating up the packaged, pre-breaded, frozen kind.

I guess that’s it.  Uh, hm.

Conversation with a professor of mine at a reception today, upon my mentioning Xanadu arriving from Netflix:
him: (pained) Oh man… Xanadu??
me: Haha, yeah, why? Is it bad?
him: Yes, … but it’s not so bad that it’s good.
me: Man, really?  That’s too bad. Why not?
him: I don’t know, it’s only mediocre.  It’s not campy enough.
me: (pause) It’s a roller musical.  That’s not campy enough??

Really, what are his standards?

    Believe it or not, it doesn’t say. So unfortunately, I have no idea. It looks like it might be, although the leaves are smaller and more curled than I’d expect…
