So I have come to the conclusion that I am totally and utterly incapable of doing anything homework related when I'm supposed to. Anything and everything can and will distract me, and ultimately lead me away from the task at hand. How have I managed to make it through 4 years of this so far without being kicked out of school.... and can I hang on long enough to graduate?

My Uncle e-mailed this to me today, I just had to share....

Playwright Jim Sherman wrote this today after Hu Jintao was named chief of the Communist Party in China.
By James Sherman
(We take you now to the Oval Office.)

George: Condi! Nice to see you. What's happening?
Condi: Sir, I have the report here about the new leader of China.
George: Great. Lay it on me.
Condi: Hu is the new leader of China.
George: That's what I want to know.
Condi: That's what I'm telling you.
George: That's what I'm asking you. Who is the new leader of China?
Condi: Yes.
George: I mean the fellow's name.
Condi: Hu.
George: The guy in China.
Condi: Hu.
George: The new leader of China.
Condi: Hu.
George: The Chinaman!
Condi: Hu is leading China.
George: Now whaddya' asking me for?
Condi: I'm telling you Hu is leading China.
George: Well, I'm asking you. Who is leading China?
Condi: That's the man's name.
George: That's who's name?
Condi: Yes.
George: Will you or will you not tell me the name of the new leader of China?
Condi: Yes, sir.
George: Yassir? Yassir Arafat is in China? I thought he was in the Middle East.
Condi: That's correct.
George: Then who is in China?
Condi: Yes, sir.
George: Yassir is in China?
Condi: No, sir.
George: Then who is?
Condi: Yes, sir.
George: Yassir?
Condi: No, sir.
George: Look, Condi. I need to know the name of the new leader of China. Get me the Secretary General of the U.N. on the phone.
Condi: Kofi?
George: No, thanks.
Condi: You want Kofi?
George: No.
Condi: You don't want Kofi.
George: No. But now that you mention it, I could use a glass of milk. And then get me the U.N.
Condi: Yes, sir.
George: Not Yassir! The guy at the U.N.
Condi: Kofi?
George: Milk! Will you please make the call?
Condi: And call who?
George: Who is the guy at the U.N?
Condi: Hu is the guy in China.
George: Will you stay out of China?!
Condi: Yes, sir.
George: And stay out of the Middle East! Just get me the guy at the U.N.
Condi: Kofi.
George: All right! With cream and two sugars. Now get on the phone.
(Condi picks up the phone.)
Condi: Rice, here.
George: Rice? Good idea. And a couple of egg rolls, too. Maybe we should send some to the guy in China. And the Middle East. Can you get Chinese food in the Middle East?

My boy just called to say hi - to make sure he got ahold of me before I went to work (he's in Calgary at a training camp right now). I don't know why, but it was just so sweet that he made a point of doing that for me - I'm feeling positively teary. These camps are pretty time-intense, and although they pay for a 10 min call per day to 'home' I'll be at work by the time he gets up to his room for the night. He snuck off to the bathroom and called me from his cell phone to make sure that I was home.

After being together for almost 3 years, it's easy to take the fact that there's someone waiting at home for you for granted. He knows that I miss him bunches, and it's nice to know that he misses me too. Despite the amount of bitching that I usually do about him - he really does have the capacity to be a complete and utter prince.

aah.... amour....
Christmas has arrived at my house. yay!
