So now I have officially turned in my research paper and a portfolio and final essay. That leaves one last big homework assignment, a project, two take-home finals, one portfolio, and one sit-down final. Sigh. I have to have my big homework assignment done by tomorrow. Most everything else needs to be turned in on Monday.

I don't really get the appeal of "Chrono Crusade" thus far. Even in Japanese it's pretty lame. I have no love for any of the characters. Apparently it's good as an adaptation from the anime until it drastically changes a big plot point and then, well, whatever for it all. I haven't read the manga, but I don't like what I'm reading about the changes. Although I suppose that if the manga is this bad, I could be wrong. The story is boring - it's just a monster of the week meets "Trinity Blood", but lacking more plot.

I'm making my way through more of J. Michael Straczynski's "Amazing Spider-Man" run, and I realize that reading stuff at 2 AM really improves it, because I changed my mind about a lot of them after a second look. They still have great story, but they're just not worth a reread. I also went back to the early "New Avengers" because I've just passed that area in my reading.

I started reading "The Other Boleyn Girl", which is rather interesting because a) it keeps bringing up "hey, look, legalized pedophelia!", b) women commenting on how much sex sucks, especially in relation to the habits of men when they're undressed (which is hilarious and awesome), and c) Anne Boleyn's sister was... a teenager. Like, with actual thoughts actual teenagers have, and not the "fair-haired angel" personality almost EVERY SINGLE chronicle of her paints onto her. Even the film adaptation of this book painted her that way. FOR SHAME! I also think she was older than Anne. Which... is odd.

I hate computer science, the course. I understand the value. I just have no interest in doing it. It's not my field. I will gladly stand up in court someday for some computer scientist pushing through something to save us from an apocalypse, but I. Do. Not. Like. This. Course.
