Well lookie here

After being down for, oh, about six hours, the damn campus ethernet decided to revive itself just as I was planning on giving up and going to bed.

I know what it's trying to do. It's trying to make it so when I finally have to leave it in 11 days, I won't miss it as much as I would if it was functioning normally.


I am now done with two of my five classes. And no final! Hee! The third class will be over and done with (again, with no final) on May 6th. My American Lit written exam will be on May 7, and my final Physics exam is May 10. I'll probably officially move out of my dorm on the 11th. The School of Ed Awards ceremony and University convocation (with Ted Olson! Wee!) is on the 14th, and Commencement, otherwise known as the day I have been counting down to since at least March is on May 15.

Because I have a limited number of graduation announcements, I can't send copies to all the friends I'd like to :( But I'm going to follow Denise's suggestion and scan one of them and put it online for all to see! And hey, if you want to send me a gift, I can't very well stop you, can I?

On to tonight's TV.

The Tru Calling finale was awesome. US folks who didn't watch this season should be flogged. UKers -- this is your last warning. The series started off quite slow, rather formulaic, and I thought that the lack of humor was very noticable. But in the second half of the season a lot more twists and turns were thrown in that really upped the interest and suspense.

So we knew that someone was going to die: Davis, Harrison, Lindsay or Luc. I was pretty sure Davis was safe because he is, after all, Exposition!Boy. And Harrison is Harrison. I got kind of freaked when he got shot, but I was fairly sure it was misdirection as far as the 'who's gonna die for good?' issue went. I was a little concerned about Lindsay because she wouldn't have married the Irish (?) dude if Tru hadn't told Har and Har hadn't talked to her about it. But Luc... Luc just didn't have much reason left to hang around. He was a pretty boy and he was nice to Tru and it's not like we can blame him for first breaking up with Tru and later thinking she was bonkers. He was a good guy. But he was kind of a boring character, and it would have been uncharacteristically happy of this show to let the two of them back together.

Now... Jack. Before I go on, I just have to say this:


I knew that he was a bad, bad boy. Wait. I'm going to skim my journal and find the post where I first said so. Ahh. Here we go. And I don't think I was too far off!

*is proud*

I'm happy, because if this show is going to keep on for another season -- fingers crossed -- it needed an antagonist. We already know that Jack has a screw loose, and if he doesn't have a death wish he certainly doesn't have an aversion to it. I wonder how long before he goes from this passive sabotage of Tru's efforts to a much more direct approach -- like Richard (Dad) did with Tru's mom.

It is very cool. Like there's these two teams squaring off to fight over these people's lives.

Now, time to catch up on my friends. I've been telling myself that, now that I have a smaller flist, I'm going to be a more generous commenter.
