Boredom...

Well it has been an uneventful last few days. School starts in just under two weeks and for the first time in a few years I'm actually looking forward to the start of a school year (I do not however envy John or Nathan who are both neck deep in more work then I will ever desire). So at the moment I'm getting in as much reading for pleasure as I can, Robert Jordan (again), Dan Brown, Barth; I'm sure I'll pick up a few more things because once school starts I'm fairly certain that I'll be reading about 2-3 books at a time and several poems, shorts, essays, and articles, all in a continuous state of fluctuated understanding within my meager brain. Life will become interesting and I'll once again have concepts, ideas, and thoughts to discuss with other folks rather than just "what I did today". Speaking of which, the other night Stites and I went to see Four Brothers. Word of warning, this is a drama movie with a few action scenes, not an action movie with dramatic moments. A bit disappointed because I was expecting something different I came home and watched The Transporter, the sequel is coming out soon and I had not seen the original I figured it was about time. This movie happily satisfied my need for gratuitous explosions and gun-fire. All in all this past near week has been rather boring, school seems so far away, but work is early tomorrow morning. Good night all.

Jordons new book will be out this Novenber, it seems that every one is rereading before they come out again. I have reread them several times and still keep slapping my forhead going how did I not know everything from the begining?

The transporter was amost excellent movie. The fight scenes were unique, especially the oil one, and the plot wasnt to bad either. I am looking forward to the Transporter 2, though it seems from the preview it might have lost something from the original, we shall see.

You can tell Dracula that the bite wound is just about healed.

Oh! And check it out, the other day I got to hold (1) some of Emerson's letters (2) a 2nd edition Shakespeare folio (3) a page of the Guttenburg (4) a 14th C book of hours and... wait for it...wait... Faulkner's ORIGNAL notes for As I Lay Daying!!! The chapter which says "My mother is a fish." is an entire page. And he drew a little picture of the coffin in the text too. Kick Ass! I have to say, it was truly orgasmic.

Ok, what's your excuse for not updating, Mr. Robinson?

Yeah! Hey when do you start your classes? Next week right? Have you started doing any prep work? I got all high-and-mighty yesterday and though I would read a short book on the medieval ages to refresh my memory. After one chapter, I got an email from my Medieval Heresy prof (Father Augustine Thompson) saying that he wants us to be "thoroughly intimate" with one of the texts and be expected to dealwith all texts in the original language. Shit. So I'm cramming right now...for the first day of class. Sad. But I hope you're sailing better waters. Let me know how your classes go!
