So, this weekend I was planning on seeing the movie Religulous. The closest theatre showing the film is in Concord, an hour away. Damn.
Still loving my internship. Yesterday I ran prompter for the noon newscast, that was cool. I've also sat in in the audio room and the control room, helped with camera, and unloaded rusty nasty air conditioners from the back of a pickup. In the rain. Yes.
So remember that time about a year ago when I swore I would never go hiking again? This: http://thelegendarystm.livejournal.com/220706.html
? Yeah, the fuckers at the Fish and Game Department sent Rebekah and me a bill for $257.42. They are assholes.
So in Psychology class Thursday night we were discussing Motivation and Emotion. This talk eventually led to a discussion of the human sex drive and sexual orientation. There were a few points I wanted to interject about these topics but was unable, due to the fact that there are several loudmouths in my class who will talk over anyone just to make sure their funny little joke gets heard. They are also assholes.
Another note about that class. Two of these rather outspoken people are not doing well in the class. They have taken it amongst themselves to lead a crusade against our teacher, saying that she doesn't know what she's doing, and that since they're "A Students" and failing, then it's obviously her teaching style that is failing them. Ignoring the fact that we're covering 13 chapters of information in eight weeks, ignoring the fact that the grades for the midterm, as they were supposed to, came out in a perfect bell curve with an appropriate mean and standard deviation (though she did have to add 20 points to everyone's score so that the median students actually got the C's they'd earned), they still bitch and bitch and bitch and waste valuable class time basically tearing our teacher to shreds. She's not a bad teacher, but she is a newbie and she does have her faults. It's not a bad class, either, it's just a lot of material to cover. I was very close to just telling one of them to shut the fuck up on Thursday night, but someone else said it in a much nicer fashion. Fucking whiners.
I just took a computerized political poll over the phone, and my god that was one of the worst automated systems I've ever encountered. The computer would ask the question (for example, "Do you have a favorable or unfavorable opinion of Barack Obama?"), this would be followed by an epically long pause, then the options would begin ("If favorable") then another epic pause, then the rest ("...press one, unfavorable, two") And it was like that the entire poll. I seriously thought, a couple times, that the thing had hung up on me.
Man, WWE LOVES that Triple Stack superplex/powerbomb spot. They've used it, I swear, at least once a week for the past four months.
My next NLP show is Friday, November 7th, at the Elks Lodge in Woburn, MA. Be there, mofos.
That's all I got for now.
