WHY ME?!?!?!?!?!? Why did this lecture have to fall on a TUESDAY!!! Ok, yeah so Dallas is 7ish hours away from where I live, but if it were any other day of the week, I would SO JUST GET UP AND GO! But NO, with my luck it falls on the busiest day of my school week, when I have class until 9:30pm. Hmmm.....so tempting! BUT WAIT its kinda close to the end of the semester, so what if I force myself to NOT miss any other Tuesdays during the semester.
I mean c'mon, I've been waiting for AC to make his way to Texas for a while, and now that my change is just 4 months away....oh geez....maybe I should talk it over with the parentals...I mean Dallas is way closer than NY, so maybe I can have some leverage...shoot I'll even pay for my friend to accompany me!!
Anderson Cooper is live in Beirut taking you "Inside Hezbollah," its weapons, its warriors and its mission. Tune in at 10 p.m. ET.
