Sheer Charisma

Busy, busy, busy. Monday is here and already I can feel the weight of my Friday philosophy paper bearing down on me. Fortunately, that means I'm getting things prepared. I hope to have a outline of my paper ready for tomorrow so I can discuss it with my professor. Will idealistic goals yield realistic results? Only tomorrow will tell.

In other news, I went to a luncheon with Joe Garden, a writer from The Onion today. He was very entertaining. In his words: "I hope my sheer charisma is enough to carry me through this speech, because, as I mentioned, I only got 2 hours of sleep last night."

The Scholastic staff is working double-time to crank out ideas for our Sarcastic issue coming up in about a month. (For those who don't know, Scholastic is the campus newsmagazine I work for; Sarcastic is our annual parody issue which is written much like The Onion. For those who really don't know, The Onion is America's premiere satirical newspaper.)

Time for some weekly phone calls to check up on the family.
