fucking bored

the by-product of someone with nothing better to do

The traditional Big East is just gone. As a fan of the game, I think you’re going to be cheated. There are a lot of rivalries and history. Not seeing UConn and Georgetown play each other. I think you lose fans with that.

Kitty Unimpressed with Android Tablets at CES
Miles, a cat journalist working for the MeowTechTimes.com blog, has so far been disappointed with the Android tablet offerings at this year’s CES.  After three days in Las Vegas, Miles isn’t finding a lot to get excited about.
Polaroid? Meh. Acer? Yawn. Panasonic? No thanks. Vizio came closest to piquing Miles’ interest with their bevy of new Android tablets, but even their offerings made him want to go to sleep. (Which he did — he’s slept most of the trip to Vegas, actually.)
“I think Miles feels that most of the tablet spotlight this year is on Windows 8 and there just isn’t as much for a Android fan like himself to get psyched about,” explained Jim Stanton, Miles’ editor.
Maybe next year, kitty.

holy war

me: we should get a leg lamp, you know, from “A Christmas Story.” It’s a major award.

half-jewish roommate: i don’t know what that is. i’ve never seen that.

me: i can’t believe you’ve never seen that movie.

half-jewish roommate: you ever see A Hannukah Story?

me:  (owned)

an impromptu and personal evaluation of christmas (in general)

i didn’t really want anything. i don’t like gifts.

"well, it’s the end of december, so here are some gifts. now i’ll be poor until january 15th. it’s cool, i like spaghetti."

bought everyone books (“you did that last year,” … but i’m a writer … “cop out”). drove to upstate new york to give everyone their books. forgot the books, handed out apologies.

re-gifted a digital camera i won after i stole an absent co-worker’s raffle tickets at the company holiday party. got drunk, took drunk pictures of my balls and the cabbie who drove me home (not at the same time), and forgot to delete them. merry christmas mom.

here’s what i wanted (a christmas list):

a moderately sized bong

some (finally) good pot to put in it

sleep

underwear

or a wash/dryer

a new apartment in which i was allowed to install a washer/dryer

success, fame, self-satisfaction

here’s what i was given:

a tea kettle

a nice shirt (i really like it)

pants that are too small

"the zombie survival guide"

here’s what i got:

guilt

the realization that i am much more broke than i thought i was

fat.

maybe i’ll convert. judaism sounds nice.

349 days til christmas 2011 (can’t wait!)
