Today I met with my undergrad advisor person to find out what the heck is supposed to happen with this award thing. Apparently I will get something in the mail. Also, there is some sort of ceremony and some amount of money is involved.
I handed in my first assignment for my humanities course (the survey of religions one). I wrote a little thingy about the book of Judith from ye Old Testament. For those of you who like me are unedumacated about Bible stuff, Judith is this chica from the olden days who saved her village of Bethsomething-or-other by chopping off the head of Holofernes who was the general big-wig of King Nebuchadnezzar's army. Judith seduces Holofernes and when he is all, like, drunk on her beauty (and lots of wine too!)she chops off his head, puts it in her picnic basket and returns to ... Oh, Bethulia, that's what it's called. There is much rejoicing etc and the army of King Neb is so confused and frightened they are easily defeated by the Israelites.
