TOD

I still have my HS School Year Book and Class pin.

I also have my infamous 18 hour, 2000 word original research paper on the Monroe Doctrine.

The paper was a term  assignment in 10th Grade History. In my usual don't do today what you can do tommow mode, I waited until the very last day. I spent the afternoon at the Library checking out a raft of reference books. I then went home and earmarked with paper slips all the applicable references I could find. Based on the available data, I created an outline and annotated the paper slips with a Topic Code. I then sat down at my typewriter and read each topic's selections and paraphrased them for the report. This endeavor carried me until 10 AM the day the report was due. Mom agreed to take the bus to school and hand deliver the report so I could get some sleep. I hastily composed a one page introduction and sent Mom on her way.

A few days later the History Prof called me to his office with "questions about originality". Oh-Uh - here's trouble. He said he was certain some of the paper was plagiarized but he could find no proof. It seems he had no trouble with the body of the report, but said the introduction was too professional and had to have been copied from somewhere, but try as he could, he could not find out where. I had little difficulty swearing that the Introduction was, in fact, my own work - but I'm sure he disbelieved me.

He awarded the paper an A Minus.

I retyped the paper my senior year in college and submitted it for a solid A.
I guess writings improve with age.

I was in a great deal of pain this morning, but I took my Vicodin at 6 and got ready for my day. My driver's license is expiring in a couple of weeks, and I was determined to renew it today.

I get in the car and drive to the bureau (we have to take an eye test and pass the roadsign test to renew). The driving position in the car is bad for my affliction, and my arm started killing me on the way there. It's a 15-20 minute drive to the bureau, and I almost turned around a couple of times, but at stop signs, I contort my arm around my back and ease the strain on the parts that were causing distress.

Anyway, I get to the bureau, but the parking lot is suspiciously empty. I walk up to the door, and there's a sign saying they were CLOSED today from 8-1!!! THE ONE DAY I PICK TO GO DO THIS, AND IT'S CLOSED!

I guess I have not been living right. I wanted to burst out crying right then and there.

That's terrible, Matt!  Hope everything goes well with the MRI tomorrow and they can find what's wrong!

From your fingers to God's ears!

Back from my first ever, and hopefully last, MRI.  They only needed to do my leg/knee, but I was still more or less inside the damned thing, which made an appallingly loud noise.  I had to giggle at the thought of BK ever having to go through one of these--a small, enclosed space surrounded by ear shattering low frequency rumbles that are exactly like loud construction noise.  ;)  They did give me headphones where I got to "listen" to "soft rock", all to the thrumming backbeat of supercollider magnets.

For some reason TV GUIDE said tonigt's show was a rerun, but in setting my DVR for tonight's recordings, I saw that it was indeed a new episode. Thanks for the addition.

Before I headed out to lunch, I managed to watch last night's MAD MEN. Good season premiere. Sal gets one step closer to consummation!

When I got in from lunch, I watched my work project for the afternoon - CRUEL GUN STORY. Cruel is a good word for it, a very blood-thirsty tale of crosses and double crosses among thieves. Excellent movie.

ATWT: more fallout from Holden's "death" and some scheming behind the scenes from Damien. Luke and Noah were very good together.
