I... hate... exams. And... also... book-buyers.
They have this little table set up on the ground floor of the SUB - where they buy back text books. A couple of days ago I was thoroughly ripped off when selling back my English text book. Today I went to sell back some of my more expensive (and essentially useless) Sociology texts, and do you know what they told me? That they had no prices for these particular intro texts because they were so new. He said "they *might* have some value in the fall".

Now, okay, I can forgive him for unintentionally depriving me of... oh... eighty bucks that I desperately needed. I mean, *he* doesn't know I'm not even going to *be* here next fall. But *then*, the little weasel gives me this bright smile and says:

"I can buy 'em wholesale - $14.50."

Fourteen. Fifty.

One of those textbooks was $78.95 - the other was $55.50. And he wants to offer me FOURTEEN FIFTY for the pair.


Sigh. I really need to get the hell out of here.

Sleeeep... only two hours I *can* sleep before PoliSci... o.O

I collapsed into bed after returning from exams. I was all snuggled up in my fleece blanket and almost asleep, when ICQ goes "uh oh!"

It's my dad. He says: "Disaster!"

Apparently, his friend Rob, who was going to drive with him, has apparently backed out. Even though they were supposed to leave *today*. So Dad says he might not make it by the 23rd, now.

I suppose it escaped him that if I'm not out of here on the 23rd, they'll throw me out of residence anyway. And that I've got nowhere to put all my stuff. And that I'm essentially stranded if he doesn't get here on time. All this because he didn't get around to organizing this until TWO WEEKS ago.

Damnit! Like it would have killed him to plan ahead, a little? And now he's telling me *I'll* have to organize alternatives if he can't make it. DAMNIT. This is not my responsibility. I don't have time, and it's too late to organize shipping and stuff now. There's four days! And I have these exam things I'm doing?

Gah. This is not bloody FAIR...

Okay; I'm going back to sleep now...
