Summer time and the livin's easy...ish.

Hokay, round two of summer courses.

I've got Social Psychology(Soc 340) at 8:30am for the rest of the summer (this makes me sad face.)

And then I've got Principles of Sociology(Soc 402) at 1pm, with an awesome professor who (unfortunately) kinda forgot how to teach an undergraduate seminar. I don't mind the extra work though, since he looks just like Owen Wilson. If Owen Wilson was 55, gone to seed, and a delightfully silly Marxist. The man is my hero.

Professor Wilson Hogan Quotes from class today:

- (referring to the fact that it would be more productive/cheaper to send criminals to Harvard rather than prison)
"A lot of people are in prison who are not very dangerous. Especially compared to the people in Harvard."

- (referring to himself teaching a class required for Law & Society)
"I'm just amused that Purdue hired a Marxist to teach Marxism to cops."

- (referring to positions in an organization, socially)
"It does have a social influence- a lot like the Tinkerbell Theory of Fairies. You know, clap your hands and Tink comes back to life? Peter Pan? Tink is dying and Peter says if you believe in fairies then everybody claps their hands and it saves her? Anybody? WHY ARE YOU PEOPLE ARE SO JADED?!?!?!"

anywhoots.

The point is I have a shazz ton of writing to do this summer, which is a good thing. Because I like to procrastinate required writing by writing whatever I damn well please. So at least I'll be doing something.

Also, I have the next two weekends off work for no reason. ...I'm suspicious.

Brody is getting a bath tomorrow which is good 'cause he's got ridiculously long claws at the moment. Plus he kinda stinks.

The pool at my apartment community is open, which means I've been hauling my day-glow whiteness out there most days, reading silly books about flappers and Steinbeck. And through a lot of time and SPF 45, I've managed to darken myself to white. YAYAH. Plus my back-to-natural blonde hair is sun-bleaching nicely. I look like my summer self.
