Yes, though feeling like I’m in some sort of time vortex as I’m wrestling the final pieces of my masters degree into shape, on top of work, on top of family, on top of life in general. I’m almost not sure how I will feel when this burden is finally lifted in a couple of weeks. I’m certainly looking forward to finding out.
Sad to see the Caps go down last night in a Game Seven overtime, and to the Flyers, of all teams, my least favorite NHL franchise of them all. Looks like the Wizards are gonna get swept too, after they stupidly declared LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers to be over-rated. The Royals started out hot, but after losing four in a row dropped below .500 day before yesterday. Glad to see that my sports universe is falling back into its proper order. I don’t know how to handle pulling for a successful team. I get all embarrassed, assuming that everyone else considers me a bandwagon jumper, since no one could really root for such bad teams for so long, right?
A week from today the new album from The Fall, Imperial Wax Solvent, hits the shelves. Can’t wait. The geekoisie who are into them and post regularly on the obsessive sorts of websites that I frequent are declaring this one a masterpiece based on advance promos, which I refuse to download. I want the real deal.
Until then, though, back to the grindstone: three presentations, five classes, one major paper yet to finish. Not that I’m counting or anything.
