A Brief Leave of Absence...

As everyone at Cal knows, we are approaching the end of the semester. A very busy time. For me, the following week is looking to be especially busy. I have a research paper to write for my Alexander the Great seminar (my self-chosen topic is the interaction betwixt Alexander and the Brahmans of India in legend). Being worth a third of my grade in the class, it needs to be of sufficient length, well structured, and possibly insightful. And it's due next Wednesday. While not a problem in itself, I also have two nights of RA duty, several meetings, participation on a student panel to interview a new Resident Director candidate, a end-of-year party with my residents, and a freakin' carnival that I'm partially in charge of.

So, yeah, it's one of those "crunch weeks".

While it pains me to do so, I'm going to be placing my blog on the lower rung of my priorities, at least until that paper is done. Once that's out of the way, it's relatively smooth sailing from there on out (only having two finals is nice), so I should be back in action.

So, while I am busy typing away about the correspondences betwixt Alexander and Dindimus, I have a little assignment for all of you. Basically, in the comments section of this post, I want you to ask questions or pose topics for me to address when I come back. I promise I will answer them all (to some extent or another). You can think of this as a sort of retribution of me. Since I am abandoning you for a couple days, you can make me talk about anything (though tasteful topics will be given higher preference).

So, sorry 'bout the short notice, but papers have to be written. I look forward to see what you have to look forward to in the future. Wish me luck on my report!

Toodles for now!

Well, a while back you mentioned your pregnant sister. I've seen her as well, so my question is, are you an uncle? yet? How's she doing?

To quote Darth Vader:

"NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!"

As for your task, I'll take one from the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy:

If the ulitmate answer to to the "Life, Universe, and Everything" is 42, what is the ultimate question?

I lost what little respect I had for Darth Vader when he screamed that...I mean..how can the most feared man in the galaxy grow up with a nickname like 'Annie'? I keep expecting him take off his helmet, and turning out to be a little red headed girl, burst out into song.

Are we going to ComicCon? I wanna go..I have brilliant cosplay ideas...How would you like to go as Gannon?...and Squall can go as Zelda..Imma go as Dark Link...

And...

You should explain to everyone how wonderful and fantastic Xena is..particularly much better than Squall.. >_> She could kill gods...and she has a chakram...Her chakram is soooo nifty...
