Murphy's Law: Kaji kiri of the Academic Hashashin

This is comedy gold. Brace yourself. I am laughing, crying, bursting into flame. My final draft paranoia induced check has done me in. Can you believe this? Insert the swearwords of your choice here.

So, I go through with my highlighter. It's 330am, I'm being really thorough - unusual for me.
I look at the Capstone Essay instructions.

I make sure my docs are all named correctly. Ok. Cool.
I click on the DropBox, anticipating my warm bed.

And guess what. In the blink of an eye, the terror is upon you.
The entire fucking system goes down.

Hey! Let's try it now!
No, still offline.
And, you know... there was this part of the Capstone website that included a little bit called "When Technology Fails". I printed it, but after a week of paper shuffling, article reading, draft printing... I have no idea where it is. I might have thrown it out.

You know what made the Joker crazy?
This shit.
Excuse my vulgar language. I should be trying to make a good impression upon the LiveJournal 'verse, but... words fail me. I want to swear, but I cannot.

This is perverse. Still down. My wrist hurts. I should be tired, but instead my nerves are all jangly. I'm supposed to be at work in 4 hours. Oh, how the greek gods destroy!

I regret... NOTHING.

After falling asleep on the floor, I awake a little after 6am to find out that there's tech problems and the deadline is pushed back. I stagger to bed. Now I am awake for a few minutes, having turned in the essays, and I get to wonder if the quality of my work is up to snuff. We'll find out soon.

    No. No music. Sleep...

More Tests

Ok, my head is on a bit wobbly. Still waiting for a friend to come by and jumpstart my truck.

So, I bide my time between naps with this. All you gamers, take this test and post those results. I got a tiebreaker question this time! What's more important, being in a fun game that feels like a movie, or identifying with your character. I chose character, but it's close. My thought was some games I've been in were like decompressed comics, with a lot of talking, investigating, revelations of a personal nature. Anyhow, here it is:

You scored as Method Actor. You think that gaming is a form of creative expression. You may view rules as, at best, a necessary evil, preferring sessions where the dice never come out of the bag. You enjoy situations that test or deepen your character's personality traits.
