Well, I finished the buggers. Me, being me, I finished editing the last essay at 3:45 AM on Monday morning. Got home at 5:00 AM and then left the apartment back for campus at 6:45 AM, very well rested, to turn them in. On the walk home at 4 in the morning, I had this long, hysterical blog post written in my head. It involved anger, humor, impossible fits of strength, and inappropriate words. But, you know, a day later, I'm still really tired and it's time to let the comps go. So forget about it. FYI, this was the writing part of the essays. I will defend them in about three weeks to my dissertation committee. Then it's on to the dissertation -- or to that McDonalds job I've always hoped for.
So since I'm not talking about comps, I'm going to talk about the Olympics.
They start in two days!! Woot! We've been talking ABOUT the Olympics for so long now without any actual Olympics that it's gotten worse than the NFL Draft. I'm excited. Go USA. Go Australia! Go UK! Go.... Spain? Do I still have my reader in Spain? Go Korea! Go China, just don't win everything, okay? We know you are a great world power. We get it. Now stop the inferiority complex. That's America's game. And for all the other countries, yes, I deliberately left you out because I hate you. Particularly Andorra. Tax-haven... smuggling... mountain-living bastards.
