so, about that long rant regarding my asshole professor - he wins. i am dropping the class.
meanwhile, it frees up more time to do my grad applications. i am amazed how much they have me stressed. UTA wants a 20 page writing sample, preferably on my research interests. so i am brushing up an old paper i wrote in prague. it is still my first choice.
others are: university of pennsylvania, rice, notre dame, and st. louis university. the last two are probably by second and third choice because they have specific medieval studies phd programs rather than supplemental certificates. i have no backup schools in this area, so i would have to move.... i really don't want to. even LSU has a very limited number of medieval courses. i have to set my standards high and expect rejections ;)

i am hooked on true blood. the political and cultural references are brilliant. if you watch, did you happen to catch the background photo in fangtasia of bush sucking the blood from lady liberty in this week's episode?



i also love the opening credits.... good ol back woods louisiana. :)

I hadn't been watching it and, in fact, had not heard of it before this, but now I'm hooked on it. (: I watched all the episodes STREAMING from youku which took forever to load. Not only that, but it would stop buffering all of the time, so I'd (usually) get to watch 5-15 minutes before I'd either have to pause it for about 10-15 minutes---my choice--or watch it with it buffering for about 20 seconds every five seconds. I wish I could have found somewhere better to watch them. But, at least I got to watch them.

Just goes to show how hooked you got me on it. You drug pusher.

Well, I already watched them all that way to get caught up, with the exception of the new episode. I kept thinking about how we needed to remember to watch it at nine on HBO. And, even though I wasn't doing anything important at the time, I completely forgot to. So now we're going to download it online to watch tonight. So don't worry about doing all that work to burn them for me (:

wandering does not make you a "gypsy."
why would you call yourself
after those who have no home?
long skirts and hoop earrings
do not make you a "gypsy."
why do you call yourself after
those who have no clothes?

"gypsy" is pejorative. please don't perpetuate the stereotype. educate yourself on what it really means to be a "gypsy" in this world.
