One week for me! (It won't even technically be Spring when my University gives me Spring Break).

Just opened a bottle of Mexican Coke (Coca Cola, not the drug, folks!). It's the real sugar kind! Mmm!

Absolutely! Wish they had more of it here in the states (though, as I have discovered, a few places do get it).

In my case, not having any days of school; my spring vacation lasts a week, so I'll have the whole first week of April off from school.

So, last night, I tried to adjust my watch for DST, I discovered none of the buttons on it worked. Sunday morning, my Dad hears me complaining about it and gives me his old $200 Seiko. Nice! (He got a Citizen Eco-Drive last summer and didn't need that one anymore).

I love my parents. :P

Been editing and revising the lecture Powerpoints for the professor I assist. Plan on incorporating videos and speech excerpts to help get students acquainted with primary sources and how the movers and shakers of American history saw things. Here's what I've got so far on a Youtube channel I set up especially for this task with some speech excerpts (and hopefully more soon!): http://www.youtube.com/user/jw00534/videos

I'll be adding more as I progress along in my editing.

I would not so dishonour God as to lend my voice to perpetuate all the mad and foolish things which men have dared to say of Him. I believe that we may find in the Bible the highest and purest religion ..... most of all in the history of Him in whose name we all are called. His religion — not the Christian religion, but the religion of Christ — the poor man's gospel; the message of forgiveness, of reconciliation, of love; and, oh, how gladly would I spend my life, in season and out of season, in preaching this! But I must have no hell terrors, none of these fear doctrines; they were not in the early creeds, God knows whether they were ever in the early gospels, or ever passed His lips. He went down to hell, but it was to break the chains, not to bind them. ~ James Anthony Froude

Ketchup on eggs isn't THAT bad. Just probably not preferable... unless you're eating powdered eggs or some rationed/MRE equivalent.
