So, it's been an interesting couple of weeks.
Those of you who may have been following - which, I guess, would just be strikinglyalert, since I don't think any other Dozo types read the LJ - may have been slightly surprised that the SBA presidential election was won by a bright, easily-flustered woman rather than a large, bearded and easy-to-get-along-with man. For reasons I'd rather not get into, I found myself unable to take the election that was all but mine, and had to withdraw. At this point, it's not looking like I'll be back at Cardozo.
Long story short, two years at UB (in accordance with the ABA's sixty-credit policy for transfers) is cheaper than another year at Cardozo. Other than that, there's just not much to it.
For now I'm back in Buffalo. We'll see what happens from here.
I've been drinking this evening, which is most likely why I updated. I drank one of the 25-ouncers of Three Philosophers, a lovely lambic-style from Brewery Ommegang in Cooperstown that reminds me of myself. At 9.8% abv, it's certainly a heavyweight, and once I've gotten through one or two of them, I can't help but be Professor Tom.
I also finished off a 25-ouncer of Apple Ephemere, one of the seasonal fruit beers from God's favorite brewery, Unibroue. I've had the Apricot Ephemere before at Swift's Hibernian Lounge, and it was swell. The Apple's not bad, but I've developed a bit of a taste for well-made cider like the Woodchuck Granny Smith, so it seems to pale in comparison.
For the record, the Dubliner white cheddar that I had with it went much, much better with the Three Philosophers. With the Ephemere, it left sort of a medicinal clove taste that I wasn't thrilled with.
Read the ex-ho's journal tonight. (Ho's a misstatement, considering that she posited herself an ethical virgin but was in fact a drama queen for whom virginity was an extra bargaining chip.) Interestingly, it doesn't mention the boy she was engaging in muchas smoochas with at Barrister's Ball. It also doesn't list me among the people she kissed at midnight last New Year's in her "Year in Review" quiz, which I find mildly interesting. I expected I'd at least rate a "Friend A, Friend B, Friend C, Friend D, and someone else who didn't deserve it" or something.
Funny how people's lives go on, isn't it?
But I digress....
