mari-ju-an-a!

We're currently sitting here in SUB looking at the paper that will not end. The sheer suckiness of it is sucking the life forces out of us. Literally!

We started it last Wednesday and don't feel like it’s EVER going to end. It's not a big paper by any stretch of the imagination. We planned for it to only be 7-8 pages. But, like a mole in a hole, we are approaching the eight pages with no end in sight. Arg! We really dislike these small paper types. All we want to do is write our little heart out, and they restrict us... anyway...

We're sitting here in SUB and we can only be described as a refugee from our massive pot-headed housemate. We're like the Palestinians of Garneau! (kidding...) We have nothing against mari-ju-an-a on its own, it’s the moron on the other side is the problem. 24/7 can be a little overwhelming. It’s like living with Cheech or Chong (the non-cool one-the one that wasn’t on Nash Bridges). Our friend thinks he's a dealer. We don't think he's smart enough to pull that off.

Anyway… for the record, the wireless connection here in SUB sucks in a major way. So far, we've been sitting here for over 3 hours and have had to reconnect over 20 times. We're willing to accept that it could be our lame PC laptop, but we're not ruling out that it's the fault of that shady organization known as the 'Students' Union.' Shady bunch, indeed. ;-) Maybe we’ll write an epic story for this blog soon. We’ll see… Anyway, back to the paper mill...

ADDENUM 1.1: We see that the scoundrel of Calgary himself, Mr. C. Grit has linked us up in a post again. Props for the linkage, Mr. Grit. You are a lady and a gentleman.

ADDENUM 1.2: For those of you interested in heckling, Mr. Peter Mackay will be on the U of A campus on Thursday speaking about how he gave up the chance to be Nova Scotia's Premier or something.

I sympathize. I had a pot addict (and yes despite popular pot-head mythology, it is addictive) room-mate for a while. He smoked all day, everyday and when he wasn't, the guy was cranky as all get out. And that's MY job damn it!

Go to the Sugar Bowl. They have great wireless.

daveberta said...

yeah, it's not that he's a bad person, it just gets very annoying.

And yes, the Sugarbowl does have good wireless, so does Remedy. We went for coffee at the Sugarbowl this morning actually. We like their cini-buns... yuuummm. :-)

When'd you finish your paper, Dave?

I was up until sometime after 4:00am this morning finishing a 10 pager for my Law & Politics class. Ugh. Fucking papers.

In the summer, I vowed no more late nights like that. How quickly do I break my own promises...

Also not helping is the fact that I have another paper due Friday that I have yet to start (thank God that it's only a 3/4 pager for a dopey intro Classics course).

daveberta said...

finished about 2:30am-ish. Indeed, we vowed the same thing... who's your Law & Politics prof? Is that Garber's class?

Jim said...

Working on that other paper right now. Thankfully, this won't be a 4am closer like last time. Um, unless I keep checking the blogs...

Yep, Garber is my 390 prof. I like her a lot--it's easily my favorite POL S class this term (outside Keating's 365, which is very interesting, as well).

daveberta said...

well, that's good. 4AM paper writing sessions are NEVER EVER fun. How do you like Garber?

Jim said...

I like Garber quite a bit. I have a bit of an American political fetish (much more so than my interest in Canadian politics, actually), so I appreciate her perspective on the American political process. I don't know, man, there's something about the filibuster that really tickles my pickle.

Dr. Garber = Good prof. She keeps me awake.

Have you had her for anything, Dr. Dave?

daveberta said...

"Dr. Dave", eh?

We kinda like the sound of it...

We've heard good things about Garber.
