Stats was surprisingly good today; the professor gave us all two bags of fun-size M&M's as part of this activity we did, and I only have two sections worth of homework to do this weekend because we weren't able to get through the other one this week. And that's the only homework I have this weekend, so it's going to be an incredibly low-key weekend. Maybe I'll FINALLY get around to doing some writing. Who knows.
The phonebank went really well last night as well. Our group ended up calling potential Obama supporters a few cities over asking them to volunteer for various "Get Out the Vote" activities over the weekend, Monday, as well as on Election Day. I was only able to get through one sheet of calls because I couldn't really focus (and there was really good pizza to eat.) We stopped around 8 to watch the Obama commercial, which was absolutely wonderful, despite the fact that it wasn't the Barack Obama Variety Half-Hour
that I was secretly hoping for. There's some more Election Day prep that our group is doing this weekend, but I don't know if I'll be able to attend. I'd really like to help out, but everyone was being really vague on details; I know that it's at a hotel all weekend, but I don't want to randomly show up and make it awkward. I'm perfectly content not doing anything politics-related this weekend. I'm still trying to figure out how I'm getting to the polls on Tuesday!
I finished (and am now in the process of re-watching) Sports Night
, so I attempted to watch Mad Men
online yesterday. It's a show that everyone has been talking about for some time now, and the SNL parodies finally drove me to it. I ended up not finishing the episode because I couldn't find one that wasn't a terrible quality and/or didn't have Japanese subtitles all over them. I'm considering getting the DVDs from the library, but want to wait until I have a lot of time to watch them so I can marathon them. (Thanksgiving break, maybe?)
If you haven't heard already, 30 Rock
premieres tonight! And you should totally watch. It's <>here if you don't want to wait, and if you've seen it already, I'm giving you 30 Rocks
, a Sesame Street
parody of the show. My favorite thing about it is that they made Liz Lemon an actual lemon with Tina Fey glasses. It's hilarious.The Office
is going to be AWESOME tonight, in more ways than one.
