A Learned Man

After much delibration, I’ve decided to attend that class. Stupidly, I enrolled at a graduate level which means more written work. But starting immediately I will be studying “Designing the American City: Civic Aspirations & Urban Form”  two days per week. I also ordered the books yesterday using a gift certificate my boss gave me for Christmas (thanks boss!).

But even with all of the stress I put on my self deciding whether to take this course or not, enrolling was actually the easy part. Now comes the hard part: completing the course and recieving a good respectable grade.

I won’t worry about that this weekend, though, because we have friends coming in from New York City (OK, Jersey City…same thing). Randy is hosting his 7th annual Re-Gift Party (essentially a Yankee Gift Swap where you bring a horribly tacky or useless gift you didn’t want and force it upon other victims). In years past I’ve seen a messenger bag with a built in AM/FM radio, a package of Fruit of the Loom tighty-whities, a Fog Hat poster, and my all time favorite: a gigantic head of Lucy, from Peanuts (see pic above).

Ah, good times.
