Just got a draft of a paper that came from 123Essays.com. I mean.
I’m thinking straight F for the class.
The Pats play Cleveland, so a) DIAF, samsplace but b) I have to go out to watch them (hopefully) dismantle the Browns. Therein lies the dilemma.
There was this place called the Pickle Barrel, where I have had a few good meals and all, including a few great game days with Captain Annoying/Doug and Holly. But they wildly over-serve a small cadre of drunks who are no fun to be around, and they stopped carrying Sam Adams or any other decent brew. I’m not looking to get lit, but even if I was, I ain’t drinking no Natty Light bombers.
There’s a new place, with ok food, no drunks, and Ranger IPA on draft. But there’s no atmosphere. It’s dead, and no wifi. Eh.
Then there’s BWW. Wifi, decent food, good beer selection, but the Benning guys go there. Seemingly all of them.
I really wish that AppleTV would break the NFL and DirectTV’s exclusive deal on Sunday Ticket. I love MLB.tv’s package. I watch and listen to 100s of baseball games all season. I would gladly pay $150 or so for the ability to watch the Pats from my couch.
You are one big ‘nooooo!’
Love you forever Sparty !!! You are one big ‘yeeeeeeeeeees!’
You are one big ‘nooooo!’
Good lord, I have something in my eye, under my contact.
I think it’s a rattlesnake.
Not watching the Sound of Music, but I’m rooting for the Nazis this time.
Sports can be as bad, if not infinitely worse, than many of our institutions in being progressive whether in human rights or in just getting calls right.
But what they can do is offer relief from wounds both minor and near fatal.
I love that Mandela was a huge supporter of the South African National Rugby team, the Springboks, after his release and during and after his Presidency.
The World Cup winning team in 1995 united much of South Africa, for at least a moment, behind their team and the honor that hosting the event brought to newly democratic nation under Mandela’s leadership. And the 2007 winning team, seen here visiting Mandela, was more heavily integrated and of course paid their respects to the great man.
Sports can be ridiculous, but they can help bring a people together.
Requiescat in pace Mr. President. May the Springboks forever honor your memory.
The department secretary at my old job, my first TT position, died suddenly this week. They had to send the sheriff to break into her house when she didn’t show up for work.
I really liked her. She was batty and hilariously naive at times, but never anything but kind, caring, and supportive towards the students, me, and my wife, who wasn’t TT.
Rest well, friend.
Toyota is getting more serious about wireless charging for its electric cars, and a Boston-area company is benefiting. The world’s largest car-maker says
I, for one, welcome our new wireless electrical overlords.
This is seriously amazing.

GSOY Today… Also, just a fave…
I think this is my favorite Tom Waits song.
This is such a perfect example of everything I love about Waits’ music. The barbaric yawp of his voice, the battle with good and evil in the speaker’s soul, and the desperation of the horns in the arrangement.,
My ear is all messed up.
I think there’s wax all up in there, but not for trying to get it out. Peroxide like woah.
I really hope it’s not an infection.
This little guy just came across my FB feed.
He’s off to a foster family before going up for adoption at the local PAWS.
But I don’t think he’s too happy about it. What a face.
The Grateful Dead, ‘Ramble on Rose.’
Look, I am no Dead Head; but this is a fine bluesy tune, and Hunter’s lyrics are pretty good.
Whatever, it’s been in my head today as I try to get some grading done.,
Oh sweet jeebus. AJ Pierzynski? The Sox signed him?
In addition to being the most hateable man in the Major Leagues not named Alex Rodriguez, AJ is a hundred and thirty-seven years old and can’t hit anymore.
The kid Vazquez best have a great, great spring.
And Go Mariners!
