Life: half a pizza and 5 cans of coke later

Yes that’s right: he who lives off of dehydrated lentil soup, oatmeal, soy milk, homemade Indian curries, and pumpkin seeds has resorted to the tactics of cheesy-fatty-starchy garbage combined with a carbonated, high fructose corn syrup and caramel colored caffeine delivery system as aids through the perils of cram-writing an MA dissertation upon which (how much I don’t know) my future hangs.

You think that’s convoluted, you should see what I’m writing about Kant’s ethics…

Here’s a randomly selected sentence:

“Kant gives the examples of a shopkeeper who may sell honestly to maintain a good reputation, the person who preserves his life out of enjoyment with it, and the philanthropist who’s actions are motivated by honour” (p.8).

Not so bad I suppose… (note the British spelling. I’m told they’re pretty sticky about Americans trying to slip in some of our nutty flavor flavour into their academic programs programmes. Sometimes it makes sense, sometimes it’s just a big pain in the ass arse.)

The only problem is that I’ve turbo-written about 9 pages that I need to condense into 3, and only covered 25% of the material…. sigh….
