Dear weather, make up your mind what season it is. I don't actually care which you pick, but mid-fall one week and high summer the next is all kinds of not cool.

So I think I make my ASTR TA uncomfortable. He's obviously an Orthodox Jew, and the first discussion I was wearing one of the lesbian t-shirts and then today I look kind of proto-goth (nails are still painting black from Monday, and I'm all in black and red, clothing-wise). I missed the two discussion sections in between, so I actually had to talk to him after class today, and he blatantly didn't look at me the whole time. Is it bad that I'm amused? Yeah, I know, I'm going to hell.

I'm not going to rant about C and the boyfriend (sounds like the name of a band: C and the Boyfriends :P), it just makes me too angry. She's a wonderful girl, why is she dating this bastard? (starkravingsane, you can't keep him anymore, he's a violent, manipulative dick). He had her in tears for hours last night, and had threatened to hurt his family and himself if she broke up with him. I want to help, but I have no idea what to do.

Yeah, so I'm camping out in the Art Library tonight in the hope I can gather enough images for the design project due 3:30 tomorrow. It's going to be pretty interesting. As in "Oh god, oh god, we're all gonna die".

Oh, for anyone who wants a laugh:

blah blah blah how to write a paper we're in fucking college, if we can't write papers by now we're fucking fucked, paper due 17 October, write a bibliography blah blah blah *headdesk*

stupid question the moment the actual lecture starts, roundabout answer oh dear God, kill me now


[Manichaeism = sort of Christianity; ooh, Mani's a deviant]

blah blah blah Christ was either warrior or teacher feh (Yo, Christian historian types, did Christ ever say he was the Messiah in as many words?) Dude, he was a scapegoat. JEWS DO HAVE HORNS! Sorry, I'm terrible.

Hum, she says that the biggest paradox of Christianity is that the death of the Redeemer (Christ) is a victory over death. Personally, I'd think it's the Trinity, but then again I'm a heretical Christ-killer. :P

Why is she pronouncing it "zee-laht"? Kill. Me. Now.

She just said "these are the things the Jews didn't like about Roman aggression." There are no words. No. Words. And then she said "in the third place". Oy.

Yes, professor, crucifixion is violent and gory. But this was a period when they made prisoners fight lions. Tell us something we don't know.


And she just compared the record of events on the Arch of Titus to a comic strip.

And then some guy didn't raise his hand. This lecture is way too big to call out in.

Heh, she just leaned on the power button on the projector and turned it off. "Power of Darkness", my bum.

pax deorum = worship or die! Ok, lady, seriously, in a period driven by religion, even "nominal praying" means a whole damned lot. You're supposed to be an historian! *sigh*

Dude, shut up and put your hand down. She's on a roll, she's not looking at you.

Paradox is the word of the day: five and counting.


Prorsus credibile est, quia ineptum est. Certum est, quia impossible est. (It is to be believed because it is absurd. It is certain because it is impossible.) ~ Tertullian (who is a philistine who hated the theatre). Yes, Christianity is opposed to logical thinking.

Seven...If she uses the phrase "to cross the Rubicon", I will commit seppuku on her desk.

Ok, and she finally mentioned the fact that the writings of Christians aren't exactly the most reliable sources when talking about their own events.

The chicken didn't go off today! (don't ask)

Augustine was a dick. End of story.

And now to discussion, where I'm sitting on the air conditioner. Nice.

Yeah, as a matter of fact, I was ficcing during both lecture and discussion. I'd do it every class, but the laptop's a little heavy for it.

Give Cassie lots of huggles from me. *Hugs*

And huggles for you too. Good luck with the class. And the chicken...whatever that means.
