Darn it. I’m not tired right now, but I’m also not currently angry at idiots I went to high school with. And it seems dumb to court anger by writing about the idiots. I should save it for when I’m actually angry, right? So I guess I won’t be writing about that today.
I avoid conflict so much that I try to avoid making myself angry. This is why I don’t watch the news. And why I tried not to pay any attention to the Republican primaries and the RNC. I like my horrifying political news delivered through a prism of humor, so thank God for Twitter.
In other news, I (actually) did the reading for one of my classes today and I’m pretty sure it’s “how to use a computer.” For graduate students. In library school. This is slightly horrifying. But if I’m right, it should be ridiculously easy, which isn’t a bad thing in my last semester. I understand library students not knowing how to use Excel or whatever (even though I am an Excel power user, but I was also an accountant for eight years), but the introductory chapter in the text legitimately explained how to turn a computer on. I will take my A+ now, thankyouverymuch.
Plus and also, the Phillies beat the Mets today behind another solid outing by Kyle Kendrick. And thank God for it, because getting swept by the Mets at home is very high on my list of terrible sports outcomes. But can someone seriously explain what kind of weird, Freaky Friday stuff is going on so that Kyle Kendrick has a better record than Cliff Lee? And I know that Wins is a terrible, useless stat for a pitcher, but still. Last year, a Cliff Lee start was practically a guaranteed win (especially in June and August) and this year that hasn’t really been the case. Man, this has been a weird freaking season. (I would say that I can’t wait for it to be over, but we all remember what happened when Cole Hamels said that during the ’09 Postseason.)
Y’know, I’ve missed these stream of consciousness blog posts. I should try to blog at a decent hour more often. I don’t know if you’ve missed them, but they amuse the hell out of me 🙂
