Strike Week IV

I was wondering if I was going to have to break out the letter V to represent the strike weeks. :) I guess so. However, word on the street (and in my apartment building, and on CBC) is that some sort of deal has been reached (tentatively). I must say though… this whole craziness has certainly given new meaning to “March Break” whereby if we do indeed go back on Monday we will have only had classes one day in March - March 1st. Frankly, I’m not sure how I will be able to handle terms in the future without a month long hiatus somewhere in the mix.

I watched the Oscars on Sunday night. That was fun… I think it was the first time I had watched the whole thing before. You may have seen my predictions page, but in any case, A Beautiful Mind came away with best picture. If you haven’t seen this movie, you don’t need me to tell you that it is really good. Russell Crowe is amazing in the role which is quite a bit different than his work with Gladiator.

I tried/succeeded at cutting my own hair. I was getting sick of it getting long, so I cut it. Oh yes, I am also too cheap to pay to get it cut and while my grandmother normally cuts it, I wasn’t about to bother her with it. She has a pretty crazy couple weeks, not to mention that she is going to the UK tomorrow to visit my aunt. The point being - the back is very hard to do and I am not finished with it, but I think I did a good job on the top. Not an endeavor for those who really care what their hair looks like. Recommended for those with relatively simple styles and a tight wallet. :) Enjoy.
