The GRE is finally here on Tuesday. I can't wait to take all of these flash cards and cast them back into the pit from whence they came (i.e. the recycling bin).
I love this portion of Saturday evening. I just got back from a run, I have a dinner planned with friends, I'm listening to A Prairie Home Companion, and I have time to kill but don't feel like I have to fill it with busy work because it's Saturday night!
This clip of Elizabeth Warren made me fall in love with her all over again. Awooga! (*moving my glasses away and toward my face*) She may be my new political crush (as opposed to Samantha Power, one of my academic crushes).
What is funny is I could end up voting for her if I end up going to Boston University! One of the four t0 five schools I'm applying to.
Oh boy! Keillor's talking about the new crazy uses of "socialism" and "class warfare," which have nothing to do with what the words actually mean. You know what sounds like class warfare to me? Mary's Magnificat, Hannah's prayer in 1 Samuel, the Beatitudes, the last being first and the first being last, actually a lot of what Jesus said seems to fit into how the Republican candidates are using "socialism" and "class warfare." Obviously this is really getting under my skin; I just can't stop talking about it. Okay, I'm going to shower now while listening to the dulcet tones of the radio show. They just sang, "How Great Thou Art" -- one of the many reasons I love this show.
