I taped Peter's Friends tonight, since Lost was on at the same time. I can't wait to see this film, since you rave about it so much, Libby. ;)

I got out books for my religion and ancient history assignments today. I've decided to tackle Liberation Theology for my Bible: Fact or Fiction one. Should be interesting, since it's a school of religious thought that I haven't seriously looked at before. And then I'm doing the perceptions of male sexuality in the Roman empire. Which is a good excuse to read Ars Amatoria. And probably re-read Apuleius' Metamorphoses.

Anyway, my back is sore from carrying so many library books. Someday, I'll fall over and not be able to get up. Probably in a month or so, if I keep this up. ;p

For some odd reason, I'm dreading Latin tomorrow. It may or may not be to do with the lecturer. Re-evaluating last week's lecture, I felt like I was waiting for him to whip out a cane and get me to hold out my hands for making a mistake. Was it not Latin that caused the most canings in school back in the day?

Ok, I am definitely overreacting. Maybe. But I hope tomorrow's lesson isn't as nerve-wracking.

According to my father, Latin lessons were marked primarily by teachers grabbing you by the ear and shaking you, while saying "NO, BOY, TRY TO ACTUALLY THINK ABOUT IT."

... I suppose the only lesson this anecdote can offer is to hide your ears from Latin teachers. Perhaps not one of life's greatest inspirational truths.
