I'm finally making Durkheim make some sense to my adled brain. Which is good, so that I can get this damned Durkheim outline shipped off to my professor (only Durkheim would take 448 pages to say what we're going to sum up in about 15) and get started on Marx and Weber, whom I promised to have to him by next Thursday, and then I can tackle Simmel (whom even my professor says is going to hurt) and then with that, I should be through the old dead white European males and then we can move on to the anthropologists and religious studies folks and other people that make sense. I'm not sure where my prof got the idea that I'm good at theory; I must fake it remarkably well, because I never feel like this stuff is making sense to me.

Gnargh.

[eta]: Durkheim shipped off, yay!

Also, no matter what I do, my Pandora channels always seem to mellow out over time. Currently my Godsmack channel is playing something slow and sweet by BNL. I don't want to mark it thumbs-down, because I like BNL, but dude, they don't belong on my Godsmack channel.

Also, does anyone know how to unlock a pdf that has been locked? I have a nice pdf annotator program that allows me to highlight my pdfs, which rocks and saves me a lot of printing, but one of the pdfs for class this week is locked by the original authors. Googling turns up various software solutions, but I'd rather not pay $10 or more to unlock one pdf. Ideas?
