Well, almost. At least I got that nasty JDBC project and two finals off my back. Phew! My life for the past few nights has been

while ((project.NotFinished()) && (caffeine.Available()))

Also got back a group assignment in ops management. Here's the gem of a comment we received on the back of our paper:

"I keep seeing wavy lines as I read this... Was it my beer or your printer?"

XD That's almost as good as the one I got on a paper from my senior year of high school. I had to write about a personal experience of "tragic comedy," and so I wrote about how, that year at Homecoming, I almost tripped and fell on my ass getting into my (platonic) date's truck because my heels were so high and my dress was so long. Right next to that bit, in the margin, my MALE student teacher wrote, "I know what you mean!"

How the hell he knew what I meant, I don't want to know.

So, I've got three more finals next week, the JDBC project demo, and an all-day interview tomorrow. Wish me luck! ^_^

This was in the Pitt News today, BTW - of special interest for anyone who isn't fond of Sprawl*Mart to begin with ( thedemonprist ? ;) ) It's really sad and sickening, what the holidays have become nowadays.

Oh yes, I've heard all about that insanity. *rolls eyes* Man, I'm glad I bought my DVD player *before* Black Friday. I might've paid $100 for it (that includes all the hookups and conversion thingie I got because my TV doesn't have the receptacles that newer TVs are being made with nowadays - the actual player was around $80), but at least I didn't get stomped all over by idiots. I can appreciate a good bargain, but sheesh, not at someone else's expense like that.

Similar crap has happened in the past - remember the stories about parents getting into fights over trying to buy the last Elmo doll a few years ago when that toy was popular? Get over it, people, there are plenty of good things to go around for everybody, for cryin' out loud.

Mall-Wart was probably selling cheap-ass (as in cheap-quality) DVD players anyway...
