The Medieval Bestseller
I read it somewhere on the Internet...

When I was tidying up my room this morning (it has become a colossal mess), I remembered (as if being reminded by the divine on high) that I turned in some sweaters to be dry-cleaned and that they were ready to be picked up about a week ago. So, after putting a load of laundry into the washing machine, I dashed off to the dry-cleaners, hoping I could be back before the cycle finished. When I got there, I was expecting to get some sort of scornful glance for having neglected to pick up my clothes for so long...a glance akin to the one I usually get at public libraries when returning my books late, as I often seem to do. But there was absolutely no judgement!

The judgement, however, came later when I was leaving the parking lot. As I was pulling out of my row in the parking lot, another lady was pulling in, but was driving to the middle/right of the road - right as in instead of being on my left-hand side, as she should be, she was directly in front of me. I figure that I'm flexible - I can most certainly switch to driving on the left-hand side. Who needs traffic rules, especially when in a parking lot? So, I start to maneuver left to drive around her and then she tries to maneuver to drive on that side as well, so I figure I'm flexible (yet again), so I maneuver back to the proper side of the road and then she sort of stops in the middle, gives me a glance full of attitude and looks as if she is talking about me to herself. I just wanted to say to her, "Hey, Lady driving the SUV that pollutes the environment...I'm not the one who wasn't following our conventions in the first place...don't you talk to yourself about how I'm the bad driver."

Well Baltimore was really fun (probably the most fun weekend I've had in a long, long time), but I really didn't do any of the work I am responsible to do this week. I have to prepare both a (short) paper and lead a precept discussion. I could really use a noreaster this week...from like this afternoon until Wednesday night or something. Noreasters, when they come, usually deposit a lot of snow and school closes. Snow is predicted for this afternoon/evening, but I think it'll only be 1-3 inches, which will likely melt by morning. But even if I don't get one, I think I can easily finish this stuff before me as long as I focus. Entirely possible.
