To be an Oregon State Beaver fan.
On the way to Thanksgiving at Stacy’s parents house in Michigan, I captured evidence of just how “hick” Michigan can be.
It’s been a long time since I’ve prayed for a C- but that’s what I’m doing tonight after taking my first final at DePaul. It feels eerily similiar to Spring term my first year at Oregon State. At that time, I believed I could pass CS courses while drinking heavily four nights a week. The only difference now is that I only drank one night a week and I actually committed to learning the material. I guess 19 year old Fred, was wise beyond his years when he changed majors from Computer Science to Business. And maybe history really does repeat itself, because I vow to never take a CS class again!
After receiving 14 citaitons for having tinted windows, I finally succumbed to the unrelenting ticketing. With the City of Chicago experiencing budget shortfalls, the meter maids have been putting in overtime. I’ve received citations as early as 2am and as late as 10pm. Who the hell is writing tickets at this time of night? I’m pretty sure they must work on commission.
This is just too good. Or too sad.
Something is seriously wrong with that pattern and the implication is true. Although I am staunch Republican, and have been since devouring “See, I Told You So” by Rush Limbaugh at age 16, this is the first election year I could not, in good conscience, vote Republican. Yes, I could have voted Republican and kept my pristine record, knowing that Illinois would go Obama no matter what, I decided it was necessary to choose the best ticket. Notice the emphasis. That should provide insight into my dissatisfaction with the GOP.
But also, it was extremely hard to resist grassroots efforts like below; I’m such a pig. 😉
Friday, Oct 23th -Bus ride (yes, we rented a yellow school bus) to the burbs for haunted houses. Think shenanigans like Whistler or Beaver Bus.
Saturday, Oct 24th – Halloween Party. Why do I embarrass myself like this?
