I'm having an essay crisis, but The Apprentice: Zorg is finally over. It was majorly glitched in some unfortunate ways (all the glitches could have been rectified with a few extra days, but we know full well that if we'd had the extra few days, we would still have had the exact same glitches, because the nth law of [something] is that work expands to fill the available time), but most teams seemed to have had a reasonably good or very good time regardless.

A few photos from the event are up — I'm hoping that more teams will send stuff as they recover.

It's pretty clear that I'm having an essay crisis, isn't it? I mean, I'm posting on lj.... *sigh*

I love whoever put together this guide to MLA style. It's almost as good as if they'd done it all on fanfic.

Today was strange, fun, tiring, and many other things. It started out with me helping a French girl named Sandrine correct her paper on (in English) and translation of (into French) a novel by Linda Hogan entitled Power. I'd agreed to do this a few days ago, and I was getting paid for it (I figured 20 euros/hr was approximately equivalent to $25/hr, which is the going rate for grad. student tutoring at home). Besides, it means that I now know of a book I'd quite like to read at some point. But it also meant having to get up at 7:30, which didn't allow me to start catching up at all on my sleep (in fact, it helped deprive me of more of it).

Class was a mixture of stupidly hot and wearying room (our usual room, which we were back in today), much nicer (read: colder) room that we moved into after the break, and a large coffee during said break. There are also two new girls in our class, from Finland. (Have I actually listed the nationalities that have cropped up in the class? I don't think so. Here they are, and apologies if it's actually a repetition. ))

After class, I headed over to the Louvre again, since Monday's the other day of the week it's open late. My second trip to the Louvre )

Oh, and apparently today was Bloom's Day, which I really ought to have known. I'm not entirely sure if there's a suitable way to celebrate the holiday, though, anyway.

Cool, I finished my so-called second thoughts for Leslie's seminar (they really are second thoughts: second thoughts about whether I really wanted to get my Greek seminar requirement out of the way this badly!), and I'm not even the last one to have e-mailed them to the group! We are, for example, still waiting on Corinne's second thoughts. :)

'Night time. It's dark outside. (OK, it has been for several hours, I'll grant you, but now I'm actually allowing myself to pay attention to such facts.) This would not generally, but does now, equal sleepytime. WHAT a good thing. What? Stop babbling? Me? This might, I suppose, conceivably be generally on the side of Good Plan rather than anything else. OK....
