(12:00 AM) | Adam Kotsko:
Tuesday Hatred: RiskI hate waiting several days for a Risk move, only to get terrible dice rolls and then make a mistake when placing my troops. I hate the difficulty of keeping up a solid Risk addiction when playing with non-addicts who only move once or twice a day.
I continue to hate the weather. I hate that The Girl and M. LeBlanc don't love me anymore. I hate passive-aggressive blog posts.
I hate how much time I waste "checking" things on the Internet. I hate that sometimes I give myself all day for a task that takes only a short amount of time, then fill the rest of the day with nothingness rather than take on another "task."
I hate that my copy of the issue of the Heythrop Journal in which an article of mine appears hasn't arrived yet. I hate that n+1 had an outdated address on their files (I also hate that I'm not completely sure I can blame them for that), meaning that I must continue to wait interminably for a period of blissful bathroom reading to begin. I hate that there are no branches or ATMs for my bank in my neighborhood. (Why not switch banks, you ask? You apparently don't know me very well.)
I hate that it'll be weeks until the next new episode of House. I hate that The Wire is going to be over next week (for On Demand customers, at least).
UPDATE: Love is all you need.
