Just finished grading the discussion-section papers. It wouldn't have taken until this late if I hadn't forgotten I had them until 10 pm tonight, but still! Ten instead of twenty-five every week is niiiiiiice. No more grading while I drive!! The world is a safer place!!

    "Take the Money and Run" -- who sings that?

Uh oh.

This morning when I went to bed, I was for some reason so nervous about sleeping through class today that I never managed to go to sleep.

So here I am. I just slammed a mocha and I'm determined to stay awake.

For those of you who've never seen me pull one of these before, it starts in minute-by-minute recounting of the ticking clock as I grade and ends in... well, weird-ass posts.

Stay tuned.

Kellinator to the rescue!!

I decided this morning that I need a superheroine identity. Vote for your favorite!

Soap Opera Girl!
Her special power: She turns the lives of her friends, enemies, and pets into an episode of Days of Our Lives, complete with hysterics and demon possessions!!

Credit Card Girl!
Able to max out tall Visas in a single bound!! What's in your wallet?

Useless Trivia Girl!
Trust me, she's the one you want on your side at Trivia Night!

Disappearing Metabolism Girl!
Never mind, this one's too depressing even for me...

Caffeinated Girl!
When mild-mannered Kelly pops into a coffee house for a mocha, out comes Caffeinated Girl, ready to protect the citizens of Atlanta through sheer obnoxiousness!

Nibbler! (thanks, gamgee)
She'll eat anything, drink anything, and then she'll burp!

Time-Wasting Girl!
I'll give you a hint, she just wrote this entry!

Oh well, this is all just a lame attempt to get Jaaason to draw me a cool userpic!

Okay. Classes finished for the day. I have tons of homework to do, and a very substantial LiveJournal update that I won't be happy until I write, but first things first... I'm going home for a nap.

Beautiful people

Sunday afternoon my phone rang. I glanced at the display and saw that it was gamgee.

When I answered, he and atomicnumber51 informed me that they were concerned because they hadn't gotten a call from me in hysterics in a couple of days, and wanted to make sure I was still alive. They did this in the middle of a social brunch on their first weekend living in the same city in a year and a half.

I love those two so much.

Oh no he didn't...

99X replaced Mandatory Metallica with this new thing where bands pick stuff they like for you to hear. It's supposed to introduce you to stuff you haven't heard before.

Tonight, for reasons I can't fathom, they invited that guy from Creed. And he starts talking about this band that had a song in the '80's that really influenced him...

It's U2, "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For."

Does anyone else get the pretentiousness of this? It's like if I said to someone, "Hey, if you lke my poetry, you ought to check this old guy out. His name's William Shakespeare."


At least I got to hear U2. Now if only they'd play U2 every time they're thinking about playing Creed...

What's next? Writhing in a cage with a python draped around my half-naked body?
