And so goes Week 11. Not as busy as I thought it would be.
On tap this weekend, two Eyeopener stories to finish writing, a resumÃ© to update, a letter to write, and some other shit that's getting too long to talk about in this sentence.
But the year is almost finished, and then it will be four months of summer spent in an office. Today, I also signed up for a 13-hour shift in said office in two Sundays. Still not sure what I was thinking.
My Was-Conscious-In-Class record through this week is 44-23 (66 per cent), which isn't great for the average student, but I haven't been able to stay awake in class since first year, so it's a passable record.
Laura, who woke me up in most of my classes last semester, was back in Toronto today. Great to have lunch with her, and get caught up. I'm going to try to work out some excursion to London this summer.
Right now, I've had Richard Ashcroft's solo albums on a seemingly endless loop. Ashcroft, best known for "Bittersweet Symphony," is, and I have said this before here, probably the most under-appreciated singer/song writer in music today. I've never heard him played once on Canadian radio or on MuchMusic.
If you (whoever 'you' is) wants a free sample, I got something that'll do the trick.
Seems like an interesting book.
A clear sign this blog may be headed to hell is that I'm writing about Britney Spears. If you have been fortunate to miss the story about her nude sculpture, below, then you're lucky.
Here's how Britney Spears responded to the sculpture on her website:
"Just like the false tabloids, Daniel Edwards got it all wrong," wrote Ms. Spears. "I delivered Sean Preston in the hospital, as everybody with a computer knows. I realize there are a lot of people who envy me for how rich and happy I am, but I'm willing to give them the benefit of the doubt. Perhaps they confused making babies with delivering them.
"I admit I was in that [doggy] position when Sean Preston was conceived, but only because I was too drunk to stand up like Kevin prefers. Furthermore, we weren't doing it on a bear rug. I was wearing the rug because we had just gotten back from a costume party."
That sounds about right.
