As you may recall, I had a midterm in Anthropology Tuesday morning. I asked you to pray for me. Well, you must have because I got a 50 out of 50! Who would have thought that being prepared actually paid off? I cannot begin to count the meetings I’ve walked into and came up with the idea to sell while walking across the threshold.
Last night I went off to watch Ten Thousand Things Theater perform A Winters Tale. It was a great performance. Lentos was performed by Steve Epp, a member of The Moving Company (of which I was a board member for five years) and Polixenes was played by James Craven, a friend since junior high. Not only was i able to get extra credit for attending in my Shakespeare class but my professor was there as well, so I had a wonderful opportunity to brown-nose. I probably shouldn’t have repeated every line as it was spoken and saying, “Brilliant, Oh My God This Shakespeare Fellow Is A Genius!” Maybe she wouldn’t have left early.
This week I need to get busy on two papers, one for UK History, selecting some object of UK origin and wax on it. And the other on the autobiography of Heda Margolius Kovaly, a holocaust survivor, and a history paper on a relevant part of her life.
For the UK History paper I am going to write on one of the most beautiful cars that ever came out of England, the 1966 Jaguar XK-E convertible. For Kovaly, I am going to write about the Prague Spring of August 1968 when Alexander Dubcek opened Czechoslovakia human rights to the consternation of the USSR (Czechoslovakia was a communist satellite). Needless to say, things didn’t go well for them. But how brilliant an attempt it was. I hope to write about the opposition to USSR invading and taking control.
That’s it for now. Before I go, did I mention I totally aced my Anthropology midterm?
