- I can’t log into my LSAC account. LSAC is essentially the law school admissions website, and my password hasn’t been working. When I enter my information in the “Forgot your password?” section, it claims to send me an email, but 2 weeks after the fact, no email. I’m going to try and call them in the morning.
- My plan was to wake up at 3 a.m. Wednesday to watch the USA / Algeria game at Maengi’s. I woke up at 4:16. I could have caught the end of it, but at that point it was a lost cause. I might head over later tonight to watch Brazil / Portugal. I can handle a 12:30 a.m. kick-off.
- We have Parent’s Day at my school tomorrow. Last year Parent’s Day consisted of me lying around my house doing nothing. I’m crossing my fingers that happens again tomorrow.
- My pule called me into his office today to ask me to make ID cards for the student prefects. His presentation was quite the show. He made a big deal of taking out his wallet and showing me a ID card and talking about all the things ID cards are good for, and then he slides a shoebox across his desk. Inside are a whole lot of clear plastic name-card holders. So I’m essentially making ID badges. “Make sure it has their date of birth,” he told me. Sure thing.
- I’ve been assigned to be a recorder at next Friday’s inter-church athletics meet. Last year I brought my laptop and had all kinds of issues with battery life. This year the laptop stays home.
- The lamb-flavored cat food at Lucky Foodtown has been marked down, so Scouts been getting a lot of that lately. For whatever reason, it seems to make her pee a lot more. And she’s been going everywhere. It’s great. I know you wanted to know.
- The new panelist on “Wait Wait... Don’t Tell Me”, Peter Gross, was hilarious in his debut. The guy’s a natural.
- I broke down and bought Third Eye Blind’s “Semi-Charmed Life” on iTunes. If you can, try listening to the first 5 seconds of the song and then compare it to The Spin Doctors’ “Two Princes” and tell me there’s not a little bit of borrowing going on there.
- I sat next to Suasami at Interval today, and she asked what I will do when I return to America. I mentioned law school, and she tsked saying I should become an engineer instead. “All lawyers do is tell lies.”
Boy standing in front of controlled fire next to my house as I leave for dinner. House was still standing when I got home. Score.
I had the kids take ID pictures 2 at a time this afternoon.
We got a plate full of pastries at Interval today. See the maple frosting on the cinnamon roll? Yeah, that's peanut butter.
