It's a little cold. [Jan. 20th, 2005|07:05 pm]
After a rigorous, mind numbing lecture on sovereign immunity in International Law I went outside of Sid Smith for a bit of sustenance.

There was only one hot dog stand left, one out of a usual five that line St. George preying on depressed and undernourished poli sci students.

The proprietor of the lone stand stood huddled against a small propane heater. She looked at me with undisguised hate as my request for a veggie dog would mean she would have to move from her one position of comfort. The $2.25 hardly seemed enough to compensate.

It took me five minutes to chip away a couple of iced olives from the cube. The relish was a solid mass, a complete no go.

The mustard and mayo were unrelenting.

Every rational part of my being revolts at the sight of those vendors, once again my base, appetitive nature overcame my good sense. I'm not proud of it.

And yes, I was a mere 4 minutes from home, but I was drawn by their siren's song, just as Homer described Odysseus as being.

Even noble men(or half-pints like me) have their dark moments.

Can you still be my friend?
