I can’t stop changing the theme for this thing. I don’t want to use the same one as Hydragenic, but every other theme makes at least one type of post look butt-ugly. Oh well.
Also: can we talk about how deeply displeased I am by the fact that it is going to POUR RAIN all day tomorrow, when I’ve taken the day off to move apartments? That just ain’t cool. At all. It will, of course, be beautiful the following day, but that’s when the new guy moves into my old apartment. I lose.
NY Times Editorial Board endorses Hillary for the Democratic nomination. For the record, I’m still voting Obama in the primary, simply as a signal that I’d like a complete sea change in the way we talk about politics — and even putting that aside, I think he’s qualified and right for the job. But if the country’s going to insist on doing things the same way for another four to eight years, then I’ll be perfectly happy to have Hillary be the one who’s doing them. It really is the best Democratic presidential field in my short lifetime, and I’m thrilled to be casting my vote.
How could you, you bastards, how could you. Not him.
This whole season is just gonna be one long victory lap for Marlo, isn’t it? I don’t know if my heart can take that evil motherfucker much longer. But then, we don’t come to THE WIRE to get happy, do we? We come to get angry.
I love that my official role at the office now is “The guy who can get anything stuck in the vending machine out.” Either through brute force (shaking the machine vigorously) or finesse (a mangled wire coathanger). There’s been no pay bump for my increased responsibilities, but HR can only deny me for so long.
Set myself a goal of reading three books a month every month this year: two non-fiction, one fiction. Have already finished for January: Read Michael Pollan’s The Omnivore’s Dilemma and Jeffrey Toobin’s The Nine for non-fiction, and Haruki Murakami’s Hard-Boiled Wonderland And The End Of The World for fiction. Am now trying to read Pierre Bayard’s How To Talk About Books You Haven’t Read as a bonus, but it’s pissing me off and I might not finish it.
I wish Tumblr had built-in Amazon linkbuilding, but it doesn’t. I guess this post would’ve been better served on Vox?
Never played with Tumblr. Having a weird shitty day where it feels like all my thoughts are poisonous. Perhaps this will distract me. Inauspicious beginning?
