I have my last game of the tournament tonight. I'm 7-0 so far with two of those victories being forfeits. I'm playing the only guy with only one defeat right now, so losing will clinch a tie for first and anything else will be a clear first. I haven't been playing well lately, so I hope I play decently tonight.
I went to visit the parents this weekend. The wifing unit gets along suspiciously well with my mother - I have to make sure they don't exchange too much information about me, as that could turn disastrous.
Bachmann appears to be polling well. I have mixed feelings. On the one hand, if she gets the Republican nomination, the Republicans will get zombie-stomped. Hooray. On the other hand, there's always the chance that she would win. Boo. She is terrible. She is not the worst conceivable candidate, but she is bad. She's smarter than Palin, though. If she gets the nomination, I'm pretty sure I would consider doing something to actually hinder her campaign beyond merely voting and trying to convince people I know not to vote for her.
Also amusing: Ron Paul got second in the straw poll. He's another guy who would get zombie-stomped. Same reaction.
Why can't there be sane opposition? Bush is looking competent in comparison.
MAN, that was awkward. I was walking back to the office after grabbing lunch and, while crossing the street, I broke stride and moved over a step to make way for somebody and my hand accidentally brushed against the hand of the woman behind me (my hand was going back and hers was going forward). I was like, "Oh, pardon me," and scurried into the office.
Pondering whether to get David Foster Wallace's unfinished novel. I like DFW a lot.
My ID-holder for work broke randomly while I was going to lunch. I stopped at security on the way in to get a new one. After scurrying in to escape the woman whose hand I accidentally touched.
I think the 0th commandment in religion is not to be a dickhead. You have to do that before you can get to "love thy neighbor" and all that. If religion is just giving you another way to be a dickhead to people, you're doing it wrong.
