Comp # 3

I have my final comprehensive exams today. Two hours on Nazi Germany/Holocaust and two hours on Mexican borderlands. Wish me luck.

Ice Ice Baby

Hooray for scraping a 1/2 inch of ice off of your car in the morning!

Seriously though - it was nuts out there this morning. Our car was completely encased in 1/4 - 1/2 inch of pure ice. I just let the car run for about 20 minutes before I attempted scraping. Our neighbor couldn't even get her car door open because the edges where the door meets the car were completely iced over. It took some warm water and chipping to crack that thing open. It was like cracking nuts. Walnuts, to be exact.

Comp # 2

Tomorrow is my 2nd comprehensive exam. Supposedly, I am to cover ALL of US history in a four hour, two question exam. Wish me luck. And all prayers would be appreciated (apparently it worked last time - who said miracles don't happen anymore?!).
