Dumb as....a Really Big Dummy*

I took a mental/physical health day the other day. Meaning that I felt like ass and therefore did NOT drag myself to the Metro station by 8 A.M. in order to make it to Commercial Transactions by 9.

I had stayed up really late finishing up a short paper and hadn't done any of the reading anyway.

How was I to know that after spending half the semester on Article 9, we would plow through Bankruptcy in ONE CLASS??? (Looking at the syllabus would have been a good start, but whatever.)

How could I have missed the ONE CLASS on Bankruptcy? I've tried to read the material, but after an hour of reading, I didn't understand it anymore than I did before I started. Two people have been kind enough to share their notes, and I *still* don't get it. Prof CT has already said that material is "weighted" on the final according to how much time we spent on it in class, but still - I am completely clueless.

And Article 3 doesn't seem to be shaping up much better. *sigh*

* The title refers to an "Almost Live" skit about a "Simile School" for people whose similes suck. Does anyone know what the hell I'm talking about? Almost Live was a Seattle show from the mid-1980's to late 1990's. I think it's where "Bill Nye the Science Guy" got his start. You should see him as "Speedwalker." It's very, um, revealing.

Comments:
I totally know what you're talking about! We watch a ton of Almost Live. Even though new episodes haven't been on for 10 years, except a recent anniversary special, my husband still insists on TIVOing every single episode. That's 5 per week!
 
Totally! I was just thinking about Simile School and decided to Google it. Thanks for being my one hit :)
