Detention, rendition and torture, oh my!

Yeah, still trying to get my ass in gear for my Law and Terrorism exam tomorrow. 23 hours and counting. Went to a study group all afternoon and that was actually pretty helpful, especially when they helped me figure out I was missing one entire supplement and that's why I had no idea what was going on in an entire section of the syllabus. Still not outlining. Still making no effort to try to read the half the book that is, as yet, unread. Still not really caring if I do good or bad. I'm telling you, it's unnatural to have exams at times other than exam week. Where's the stress? Where's the bad eating and the lack of sleep and the caffeine overdose? I'm just not feeling it. In fact, I have every intention of watching the two-hour Alias season finale tonight...I might open my book on the coffee table just to make myself feel better, but, then again, maybe not.

I'm gonna put in two hours and then it's walk time.

I've been thinking of lots of good stuff to blog about...maybe tomorrow night after the exam or Friday before post-exam happy hour starts I'll try to put something not crappy up around here. But, once again, maybe not. Also, it just occurred to me that the one good thing about two exam periods is two post-exam drinking periods...YAY! Finally, a bright side!

As a last aside, here's a little story for ya's.

Riding in the elevator this morning with Dean 'o' the Law School and he asks how I'm doing. Because I'm standing there stooped over under the weight of twenty kajillion books I go "Well, you know...just standing here with my 500 ton backpack on." Then he goes "Hey, you need to look on the bright side!" So, in my usual eloquent and respectful way, I go "Yeah, on the bight side I'm building up my muscles in case the only job I can get after law school is as a sherpa!" He didn't laugh though. So uptight.
