The Trib's weather forecast: "Yet another damp, dreary day." How do they expect me to get out of bed in the morning?
I spent my walk home pondering the lyrics to Yankee Doodle (don't ask) and came to the conclusion that, although the story is that the song is meant to poke fun at the silly American colonists, it in fact characterizes American men as nancy-boys obsessed with dancing, clothes, and pedophilia. Amazing how the distance of twenty or thirty years can change your perspective on the songs you learned as a child!
Classes start next week, as do my TA duties. I foresee great busyness in my future. Must play my Sims while I still can.
