I'm Done!!! And I hate Word

So, here it is, after 1 AM, and I'm putting the final finishing touches on my final paper, which is not stellar work, but enough to get me through the course, when the file DISAPPEARS from my drive and Word is refusing to open the file, because it is not a valid path. I hate Word! I am forever a convert to Open Office, since it had no trouble finding the file on my thumb drive. Now I don't have to throw myself at the mercy of my instructor, who I have already determined to be a hardass and unlikely to be too sympathetic that I had a problem at the 11th hour due to my extreme ability to procrastinate.

Why I wish I were Karl

On my way to school today, I saw an awesome example of mutton dressed as lamb- a Korean specialty if there ever was one. This woman was, shall we say, of a certain age (I'll generously guess mid-fifties) wearing skintight leopard skin pants and platform stilettos at least five inches high. I had my camera, but not the balls to take a photo on a crowded pedestrian mall. Karl would never have let bystanders put him off. I'm pretty sure he would have walked across broken glass to get a photo of her.

For those keeping track, I finish my MEd. tomorrow. I have a manageable-ish amount of work to get done before school tomorrow. It's far from my finest, but it's enough for me to pass. Unless my teacher is stricter with the grading than last semester. I could link to my previous complaint about him, but I shouldn't even be spending this time writing this down. My ace procrastination skills have limits...

A Good Time Was Had By... Me or The One Where Chandler Dates Rachel's Boss

I may have just gotten a little karmic retribution for snubbing Soldierman so cavalierly for intellectual deficiencies in the form of a rather brutal dating experience tonight.
Well, as you may have guessed from the title, *I* had a great time. To quote Rachel's boss, "Click, click, click." He's smart, funny, and articulate. ;-) We talked for hours and the clicking *seemed* to be mutual.
Until it was time to go and he gave me a one-armed, sideways hug and said..."We'll have to keep in touch."
So, I'm going to try not to dissect the evening and figure out where it all went wrong. But I probably will.
On a more positive note, I got an email from Please-Be-My-X and he is NOT coming back to Korea at this time.
