(12:00 AM) | Adam Kotsko:
Tuesday Hatred: Philosophy of ReligionI hate that I can't take a virtual sabbath because my online time is actually an escape from work. I hate going second in a two-person Risk game. I hate that the little icon in the corner says that I'm disconnected from my wireless network when I'm obviously not.
I hate that my piano skills are slowly deteriorating, as are my already-meager German skills. I continue to hate Greek verbs. I hate that after years of steady work, my dream of a casually polylingual cosmopolitanism still seems very distant.
I hate that so many things cost money -- nearly all things, it seems.
I hate being in a confessing mood when I'm supposed to be hating. Or loving.
