Exercise in Futility

Wednesday, August 31st, 2005

Yesterday I mailed in an application for a job opening here at my workplace, and I have no expectation that I will even get an interview. I doubt, even, that I will make the first cut of applications. If by some miracle I do, I will not make it to the interview. If by some […]

Things I Don’t Understand

Tuesday, August 30th, 2005

1. The need to take your cellphone everywhere. And I mean, EVERYWHERE. Does it need to come with you to the restroom? Can’t you call the person back a little later?? 2. The need to put stupid things on your car. I understand the occasional sticker of your favorite punk band, or a sports team […]

Other Things

A few weekend notes… “Battlestar Galactica” was as fab as always. I sometimes get a little lost when they start babbling on about the myth about Earth and whatnot, but it’s still cool. Apollo and Starbuck are adorable together, but, as the recapper on TWOP stated, they are “emotionally retarded.” It’s amusing that Apollo’s so […]

Thinking of New Orleans

Monday, August 29th, 2005

I understand the Louisiana governor has asked us all to pray for the state today. I don’t pray, so praying would be somewhat hypocritical, but I am definitely hoping that the state makes it through the hurricane with as little damage as possible. I have heard that damage is already extensive, and that parts of […]

School Days, and Goddamn It’s Hot

Friday, August 26th, 2005

Whew, seriously, 110 this weekend? Gimme a break. Ugh. First two classes of graduate school this week. Eep. Only slightly scared, but that’s mainly because of the subject matter. I haven’t ever had an economics class, and my math skills are rusty, so this will be a challenge. The professors seem to be fairly nice […]

Yay, Monday night pre-season game at Pittsburgh… that they are currently winning! Squee! If they lose that two touchdown lead now? I will not be a happy camper. Hines Ward reported to camp today! Hines! We love you!!! I have decided that the dippy female interviewer has to go. In the middle of the damn […]

Drrrrrr

Totally useless post, sound the alarms! Aiiiooooooga! Aiiiioooooogaaaaa!! BSG, omgwtf FARMS. Creeeeeeepy. I was creeped. The hell. Out. Starbuck’s in love! Aww! But she might be knocked up with a Cylon baby! Boo! Weird scars are upsetting! And why is Adama more upset over Boomer v 1.0 dying than he is that his bratling Apollo […]

Oh Fudge…

Joey Porter is out for the preseason with a knee injury. He joins Duce Staley in the Hurt Locker. Cowher says he’ll be back in time for the opener in September, but… the guy just had knee surgery. Can they really get guys back from surgery so fast? What DO they feed these guys at […]

And Now for Something Completely Different

Wednesday, August 10th, 2005

Just kidding. It’s just updates from my life again. So sorry. So! I was accepted into graduate school, so life is Skittles and beer again. Or close to it. I have also been awarded some financial aid, so I will be able to buy books and shoes for school. Happy things, happy things, la dee […]

The Week that Was

Friday, August 5th, 2005

My pear exploded on Monday. I can’t sum up my week better than that, really. I took a pear to work with me in a bag of other foodstuffs (bottle of water, small bottle of milk, some cheese, crackers) and I dropped the bag at work. The pear got squished to mush under everything else […]
