Auf Wiedersehen

I'm pretty sure that means goodbye. I'm off in about half an hour for Poland by way of Germany. Hopefully I'll have lots of pretty pictures when I get back. So long and thanks for all the fish.

I can be such a girl sometimes. I got my hair cut today AND my eyebrows done. I know. I pamper myself too much. A haircut every six months?! The insanity!

All because I wanted to look nice in my Europe pictures. Tsk, tsk. So vain (I bet you think this song is about you).

busy work

My Holocaust class midterm essay question is:
Historians speak of a radicalization of antisemitism in National Socialist Germany from 1933 to 1938. Do you agree or disagree?

Um. Disagree. Entirely. Obviously the correct answer.
Basically I'm providing a summary of Nazi actions against Jews in this time period. Reads like a textbook and is very boring to write.

In other news, has anyone noticed the new widget in my sidebar, under my gorgeous picture? Click on the "Star-Studded Love" article to see a clip of George Clooney asking Regis about the ND- Syracuse game on the Oscars red carpet. He knew we were up at the half! Could I love this man any more? It's doubtful.

To close, a guilty confession: I haven't watched a single debate yet this presidential race. And I'm a polisci major.

Papal Plane

From Wikipedia:
"Whenever the Pope flies on a plane, it is nicknamed "Shepherd One". Typically, it is a chartered Alitalia Jet, however, the nickname follows the Pope to smaller craft when necessary to land at small airports. The tradition is for the Pope to fly to the country he is visiting on a chartered Alitalia jet and to return on a jet belonging to a flag carrier from the visited nation."
