I've Sure Enjoyed the Rain

(no subject)

Oy, long weekend.

The holiday was good. Thanksgiving = such good food! Family was...family. So take that how you will. Overall, a decent time.

I was an utter slacker and though I should have been doing work, probably nonstop since Friday...I didn't. Though I did spend most of yesterday and today helping my sister paint her kitchen, dining room, living room, and hallway. It took about 4 hours the first day, and 2 today. Not to mention the 1.5 hours on Friday night that we taped off everything. (By the way, I hate painter's tape. Rollers and brushes aren't high on my list either.) The remainder of Saturday (after painting) was spent drinking and watching movies, so that was good.


Anyway, so a lot of painting, and my arms and legs are killing me. A lot of up and down and squatting and stretching and ladders. 6 hours' worth, to be exact.

And in addition to soreness, I'm trying to catch up on the work I didn't do. I'm not quite behind yet, but I'm getting there. The good news is, my TV show pilot is finished. I still need to revise it, maybe cut out a couple pages (ugh), but it as a "the end" at the end, so it's done. And I found all the images I'll need for my Mesoamerican Timeline (I'm making it into a PowerPoint...it seemed easiest). But I'm going to need to find more dates than I have. The problem is that most things don't have dates, but I need to compile them into a timeline...see the issue?

Eh.

So I'm giving up on the Timeline for tonight. I'll compile it all (and figure out what the hell to write on the slides and how to make some image that resembles a timeline for the main slide) at a later date. But before Thursday...which is when it's due.

Good news, though. I got an A on my Communication test from last week...which puts my average at 90%. And the final is optional, for those who either missed a test, or want to try to raise their grade. So, no Comm final for me! The best part is that the final is during class on Thursday, so I won't have to go at all. Tuesday will be my last class...rock the fuck on.

Alright, I think that's it for my disjointed comments. I'm sleepy and my brain is not working well. So I think I'll read over the script, edit what I can, and then finish the rest of that tomorrow.

Alright, I'm really done this time.

The CBS Monday night line up is quite possibly the most brilliant thing ever. See, they hook you with "How I Met Your Mother," which I used to dislike, but now I watch religiously. (Is it bad that I started watching more after Neil Patrick Harris came out?) Then you stay tuned for "The Class," which isn't great, but it's not terrible and it's on already, so you may as well watch. And some of the characters are entertaining, so good. Then there's "Two and a Half Men" which really isn't very good at all, but who doesn't love Jon Cryer, and I have had a major crush on Charlie Sheen since 1993 when he was in The Three Musketeers (Kiefer too). But why switch the channel for just a half hour when you're just going to come back for "The New Adventures of Old Christine," the show you were actually going to watch in the first place. Because it rocks. I LOVE her brother, and her ex-husband, and though I really didn't like "Seinfeld" and I definitely didn't like Elaine at all, but I adore Christine. She's so damn neurotic, it makes me think that my life might actually make a good sitcom. ;-)


Anyway, "Studio 60" time.


So about all that work I have to do....yeah. No.
