I'm a Chaotic Good Human Sorceress! )

What a long, long day.
I went to sleep at around 3 a.m because I don't know how to manage my time in a proper manner. On the other hand I know I can work into the night and have a pretty good assignment done on time.
I can imagine what my Semester tests are going to look like.
*sigh*
It was mainly the defensive driving course that put me out of whack, because it basically ate up all the spare time I usually use to read articles, essays and finish up my notes.
Tomorrow is the final class of the course and there will be a test and dir ba'alak if I have to do this whole thing over again.
Any way I need a cup of coffee and some supper.

Yeah, it's been three years and I get to do a twelve hour course (three meetings, four hours each) where I get to be bored out of my mind in order to get my license renewed.
Blah, what a waste of time!
But at least they don't fall on University hours, two classes are on Tuesday which is a free day and the other is on Sunday when I finish classes early.
So it's not all bad.
Other than, you know, it being a complete waste of time!

But oh well, I'll survive and barring any really negligent and crappy driving on my part (unlikely since I'm a defensive driver in any event and hate driving like I'm in a race for my life) I shouldn't need to go to one of these ever again.

And onto something completely different; On the 4th of March Wafa Sultan was in a debate with Tal'at Remieh on Al-Jazeera: Video with translation on MEMRI-TV.
I really admire Wafa Sultan going up against the culture she left, really going into their faces and saying what needs to be said. I don't agree with her politics as such (because she's a bit of a neocon), but I think she needs to be listened to, she's another voice which is often silenced in the Arab and Muslim world, not only as a moderate but also as a woman.

V and Justice

V: Ah, I was forgetting that we are not properly introduced. I do not have a name. You can call me V. Madam Justice...this is V. V... this is Madam Justice. hello, Madam Justice.

Justice: Good evening, V.

V: There. Now we know each other. Actually, I've been a fan of yours for quite some time. Oh, I know what you're thinking...

Justice: The poor boy has a crush on me...an adolescent fatuation.

V: I beg your pardon, Madam. It isn't like that at all. I've long admired you...albeit only from a distance. I used to stare at you from the streets below when I was a child. I'd say to my father, "Who is that lady?" And he'd say "That's Madam Justice." And I'd say "Isn't she pretty."

V: Please don't think it was merely physical. I know you're not that sort of girl. No, I loved you as a person. As an ideal.

Justice: What? V! For shame! You have betrayed me for some harlot, some vain and pouting hussy with painted lips and a knowing smile!

V: I, Madam? I beg to differ! It was your infidelity that drove me to her arms!

V: Ah-ha! That surprised you, didn't it? You thought I didn't know about your little fling. But I do. I know everything! Frankly, I wasn't surprised when I found out. You always did have an eye for a man in uniform.

Justice: Uniform? Why I'm sure I don't know what you're talking about. It was always you, V. You were the only one...

V: Liar! Slut! Whore! Deny that you let him have his way with you, him with his armbands and jackboots!

V: Well? Cat got your tongue? I though as much.

V: Very well. So you stand revealed at last. you are no longer my justice. You are his justice now. You have bedded another.

Justice: Sob! Choke! Wh-who is she, V? What is her name?

V: Her name is Anarchy. And she has taught me more as a mistress than you ever did! She has taught me that justice is meaningless without freedom. She is honest. She makes no promises and breaks none. Unlike you, Jezebel. I used to wonder why you could never look me in the eye. Now I know. So good bye, dear lady. I would be saddened by our parting even now, save that you are no longer the woman I once loved.

*KABOOM!*
