One down, three to go

I just got out of my final Chilean Literature exam, the first of four finals I have this week. Next up are Brazilian Identity tomorrow, Moral Social on Thursday, and Political Theology on Friday. But the major monkey on my back is this stupid (stupid because I haven´t yet done it and that´s killing me, not because the assignment itself is stupid) four-pager for CIEE. It was due an embarrassingly long time ago, but I was really sick, and then I was sort of sick but had to run all over freaking Viña seeing a specialist about eighteen billion times, and then we were travelling, and by that time it was so late that I didn´t even want to think about it because it made me feel guilty.

I think I´ll write it tonight.

But more than that, I´m updating to pass on a link to this McSweeneys article: Models of Conflict in Literature, Which I Think Justify Beeping My Horn While Driving, Even if My Girlfriend Does Not. I laughed out loud!
