I am TOTALLY SCREWED. As always, I have done this to myself. I lost my list of paper topics for my Western Civ class. Luckily, I had read them and started my paper very early and it’s not due for at least another week. This wouldn’t be such a big problem if any of those things were true. The paper is due tomorrow; I never read the topics and therefore have no idea what I should be writing about; and obviously, I haven’t started the paper. I did finally find my syllabus (on the floor of the backseat in my car) and I e-mailed my professor, desperately seeking a new copy of the paper topics, but I have little hope that this will come through (not to mention the obvious reduction in esteem asking for a copy of the paper topics THE DAY BEFORE A PAPER IS DUE).
In better news, I have tickets to see Fellowship of the Ring:Extended and The Two Towers:Extended with and Pooch. I also have tickets to see both shows on my own, apparently, because my multiple clicking on the buttons at movietickets.com seems to have purchased me the ticket I thought hadn’t gone through before lunch! So I’ll either be seeing The Two Towers twice on Friday, Dec. 12 (the 4:15 and 8:30 shows) or I’ll find a way to give the 4:15 ticket away. Either way, there’s TONS of LOTR fun in store for me. Woo-hoo!
EDIT: Woo-hoo! Called Mom, started to complain about losing paper topics, picked up a stack of reciepts and – YAY – found my list of paper topics. Too bad I haven’t read any of these books. Still, I think all will now be well.
