I went to Amsterdam, Paris, Milan, Florence, and Rome. Suck it.

Greetings to all.

I am very busy with essays and research, so I am going to keep this short. I just got back from my trip, and it was killer. I have embedded a video from my time in Paris -- we got to see a silly French protest! It was about the Pope and condoms. It worked out because when I went to the Vatican a few days later, I could continue the protest where the Ratzinger lives.

We got an unexpected surprise when visiting Notre Dame in Paris... a protest started right before our eyes! Man the french love to protest. This one was about the Pope's not allowing condoms to be used to fight AIDS in Africa. ASSASSIN!

I did IT. And IT was grand.


It's now St. Patrick's day eve, and because I fear I may be too zonked to post then, I will have to now, before I leave on my 8 DAY TRIP. WOOT.

Right now, I'm on my long ass break. Last week, I turned in my first graded assignment for Trinity titled "Tabling the Torturer Problem in Argentina: The Grey Zone between Forgiveness and Punishment". I know, really REALLY fun stuff. I also took my first test. It raped me. And as one of my fellow comedians commented, maybe I shouldn't have been taking my test in a dark alley.

Speaking of comedians, I am one now! Kinda. Well, whatever, screw you, I have at least a month where I can call myself one. This past Thursday, the 13th, I performed stand up along with 6 other talented students at Bowes in Dublin. I was just glad I didn't blank out and forget everything. I've embedded the video into the site, so luckily for you, it can be watched by all! But if you are one of my Penn State friends, don't watch it, because I plan on using the material on you next fall and pretending that I just made it up then. Or, watch it, and then go along with it. Whichever.
