4 reasons I have cried in the past 2 weeks.

1. The new academic director at my college suggesting that giving me a study skills/organizational tutor (which my disability recommendations mandate) is not accomodations, it's "enabling". Apparently, the College making sure I am able to learn is like them giving free booze to an alcoholic. I have other gripes with the new academic director, but complaining about specific people is not what Random Lists of Things is for (especially complaining not in list form).
2. Poking myself in the eye while removing a contact lens.
3. Six Feet Under's series finale on Sunday.
4. Six Feet Under's series finale replay on Monday.

10 things kids from MTV's "My Super Sweet Sixteen" did that normal, well-adjusted kids would never do for their birthdays.

1. Arriving to the party in a helicopter.
2. Hiring people to dress up in tuxes and hand out invitations.
3. Having auditions with to determine which guys from a local college are going to carry you into your party.
4. Starring in a fashion show in the middle of your party.
5. Going with your dad to a strip club to audition women to dance at your party.
6. Having a hangover...from drinking too much Red Bull
7. Your parents hiring a security guard to follow you around your party and make sure that no guy dances too close to you.
8. Flying to Paris because you couldn't find a dress to wear in California.
9. People are scalping invites to your party.
10. Rollin' up in a Bentley to handout invitations at school and then rollin' out.

5 dances that I'm incapable of doing.

  1. The Roger Rabbit

  2. The Tootsie Roll

  3. The Electric Slide

  4. The Cha Cha

  5. Anything that was deemed good dancing in Save the Last Dance

5 reasons my friends have had to cancel plans with me.

  1. I have to take my dog to the vet.

  2. I have to do something with my family

  3. I’m really tired.

  4. I forgot.

  5. I’m contagious…I got scabies from the little kids I was babysitting.

1 hilarious Bob Jones University story.

As told to me by a friend who debates on the same circuit as BJU

1. BJU has a looking policy. This means that if you are looking at anyone in a seductive manner you can get in trouble. Also, a bit of background. There is no dating at BJU. It is called courting and you may not "court" without both parties having a signed permission slip from their parents. Even then, you must have a chaperone. Anyway, this engaged couple was in the library sitting across the table from each other studying and they were looking into each other eyes. Soon they were busted and sent to the dean. The guy, being a smartass, said to the dean, "Well, it's a good thing that I was wearing my glasses or she'd be pregnant". Mr. Funny was then expelled from the college. Hee!

5 5 Places I will be visiting on my way back to school.

1. Madison, WI
2. Milwaukee, WI
3. Evanston, IL
4. Chicago, IL
5. Erie, PA

Here's hoping that I don't get lost in Lake Forest/Gurnee, IL again.

4 Business magazines that I enjoy reading.

  1. BusinessWeek

  2. The Economist

  3. Business 2.0

  4. Fast Company

3 armed robberies that have occured in my neighborhood recently.

1. At 6am one morning a guy was held up at a bus stop
2. At 1pm one afternoon a guy was held up while taking groceries out of his car
3. At some daylight hour a woman has held up on the way to the bus stop

Note: They caught the little punk who was responsible for these. I hope that he's forced to toss someone's salad in jail.

2 Things said by this dude in my lame summer course at Lame State University that didn't quite make sense.

1. "Basically she's patronizing herself."
In response to my comment that a story written from a certain character's perspective would be patronizing.
2. "It's about him overcoming endurance"
In response to a Jack London story of survival.
