A Lame Weekend
Weekend Hell. That's what I like to call Saturdays and Sundays that don't involve football in these fall and early winter months. Despite the nice matchups between USC/UCLA & Georgia/LSU and the semi-nice games of Texas/Colorado or VA Tech/Florida St., not to mention the Sunday smorgasbord of NFL action, yours truly will be working on a project for my job that may keep me on the inactive list all weekend. What do you do when you know that football (even some games watched the tivo way) will prevent you from getting done something that effects your ability to put bread (I prefer white on sandwiches & wheat if toasted) on the table? Do I say screw it, I can do it in the evening, and then at 2 am I'm still not as far along as I need to be but I don't care so I just sack out? For those still in college and even those now finished, we all know or remember how that panned out with research papers that were due or tests that were the next day. Unlike college, if I get the equivalent of a C on this project, I'm still not passing. Damn. Hell is Hell for a reason. I'm pretty sure guys living in Hell right now don't look at each other and say, "beauty eh?". Nope, hell sucks, and I may be headed for the earth-bound version of it tomorrow.
