I would probably be more upset about this if I wasn't so bloody overloaded right now. Two midterms before I even had a meal today, then off to furiously chisel at cherry wood for three hours, then a guest artist lecture, then back up North to pick up posters for the rally tomorrow which everyone in Michigan should clearly go to. Noon. Capitol building. Lansing. Be there.
All this on 3 hours of sleep, mind you. 9 over the last 3 days.
Honestly, what sort of major public university has midterms right now anyways? It's cruel, is what it is. It's in the midst of Rosh Hashana/Yom Kippur season, it's in the middle of Ramadan, and it's right when playoffs start. So that's three major religions you've gone and stomped all over right there.
So, yeah, I am dead certain that I would be freaking out more if I was actually running on anything other than caffeine and grim determination right now. Poor Tony G. You can't give the ChiSux an extra out like that, not in a relatively close game. Not in the postseason. What can you say, though? Wells shouldn't have let those guys get on base, and he shouldn't have floated that ball to Iguchi. Edgar shouldn't have grounded out to end the game (he's got a real knack, huh?).
It was very confusing having Bill Mueller up to bat with Bill Miller behind the plate. It was also annoying having Boomer on the mound and Boomer in the announcer's booth. The second I strongly dislike for baseball games, by the by. He's annoying for football too, but I tend to think his overbearing, blustery manner is better suited for it. Mike Piazza was surprisingly tolerable, though he was no Al Leiter.
Time for wood. If I need to use the bandsaw or the radial armsaw I'm just going to flat-out refuse, if I try to use power machinery on this little sleep I'm liable to lose more than my ability to flip out properly over the Sox. Last time I was in the studio I left a little bit early to get back to a TV in time for the first game of the series. My professor told me to "enjoy the game" I really hope he doesn't ask how they're doing.
