Brief update

I think I need to ban myself from the intarweb for a while. I bombed my Business Law quiz tonight. This class is going to kick my ass. Last week, I took the practice quiz and missed 3 out of 20, basically a B. But it didn’t count. And I hadn’t even read the chapters we were quizzed on last week.

It pains me to say that not only did I read the chapters we were quizzed on tonight, but I thought I knew what I was doing. Until I got my score back… 13 out of 20. I MISSED 7! That’s a D/F! Holy crapola! Good thing we are allowed to drop our two lowest scores from our final grade. But that means I have to ace the quizzes from here on out. If I believed the secret of getting a good grade was not reading like I did last week, then I would be blogging a lot more.

But right now I have a nerdly 3.95 overall GPA (I would have a 4.0 if I hadn’t received an A- the semester my Dad passed away because I bombed a final), and I would like to maintain it. So now that I finally have a book to read, I’m going to put more effort into reading and understanding the book so I do better in the future.

However, I still allowed myself to watch tonight’s HEROES. OMG! zOMG! Eeeeeeeeee!

In related news, VARIETY reports the following:

“Heroes: Origins” will air in “Heroes'” Monday night timeslot, most likely after the original completes its season run (but possibly when it takes a hiatus). The net has ordered six segs of “Origins,” which combined with “Heroes” makes for 30 hours.

NBC Entertainment prexy Kevin Reilly said “Heroes: Origins” will allow the regular show to air virtually uninterrupted through the season.

“I’m calling it the ‘Bulk-Up Challenge,’ ” Reilly said. “We’re trying to stay more consistent in the scheduling for our audience … so we’ll fill out the year, with not a lot of repeats or a long hiatus. We’ll keep the pedal to the metal next year on ‘Heroes.'”

Reilly credited “Heroes” creator-exec producer Tim Kring with pitching the spinoff. Kring will oversee a second crew that will write and produce the episodes simultaneously with the original skein.

“Heroes: Origins” will air as stand-alone episodes that center each week on a different character not yet seen on the original show. Peacock has also added an interactive element to the show: Viewers will be asked to pick their favorite character from “Origins,” who will then join the cast of the full-blown “Heroes” skein the following year.
