|In Praise of Winter
I tried to take a walk today and just turned right around and came back inside.
I’m ready for autumn and winter. I’m ready right now.
No more heat. No more humidity. No more difficulty breathing. No more glasses fogging up from going outside. No more oppressive levels of sunshine. No more legions of Cubs fans. No more people wearing too little clothing. No more quadrupled electricity bills. No more sweating and wet hair from just sitting or standing around. No more feeling like a toadstool that requires hiding in the cold and dark. No more having to deal with people saying the weather is gorgeous when it it anything but.
When I drive in my car I turn up the AC until my hands hurt from the cold, and I revel in it. I love the dark, and love seeing the days shorten, and cannot wait for the end of daylight savings. I cannot wait for people to start covering back up and looking classier. I find the cold invigorating, and the heat draining. I’m already lethargic enough without being sapped by the heat. I cannot wait to start wearing my hoodies again and for everyone to want to stay inside and do indoor things. I want hot soup, hot cocoa, and lots of hot black tea. Most of all I want cold nights where I sleep bound up in layer after layer of sheets, blankets, throws, and covers.
Yes, I know I am a heretic and blasphemer for those in the cult of summer’s thrall, but I say bring back the cold and let me live happily in darkness.

So... for some reason I fell asleep at 6:30, and now I'm awake... this isn't good.

All I can say about this weekend is "EVERYBODY PIZZA".
Thank you Corey and family for the hospitality.
Now that I am home though...
ZOMG, I couldn't care less about the song, but the video is like the internet is alive. Current Mood: amazed by that video

|Sometimes I just need a vacation
I am very tired, not physically for once, but mentally and emotionally I really feel the need to just get away.
I'm tired of everything and listless. I'm bored at work and I am bored at home.
The next two weeks Alex will be gone, and it will be like I am working two full time jobs. Parking has gone to shit on campus and around the hospital due to a hospital parking lot closing and the seemingly ubiquitous construction. I'm tired of the same problems never being fixed while new problems constantly seem to spring up. Nothing is ever solved in the hospital it seems, newer and more urgent problems just keep coming. In a way it feels like nothing new ever happens because every problem is in a cycle of constant renewal.
I'm tired of watching DVDs or reading during all of my downtime. I'm tired of reading all the same old internet shit just on a different day. I'm tired of traffic, bad parking and drunken assholes roving my neighborhood due to the Cubs. I'm tired of the political process and news media grinding away at my ability to care at all about the future of this country. Finally, I'm also tired of all the same inside jokes from six months ago hanging around and the feeling of doing the same thing every week. This isn't a rut, this is a burnout.
I need some new blood. I need to do some new things and reclaim some semblance of action in my life. By no means are things as bad as they were at this time last year, but I cannot help but feel like there is a proverbial noose slowly tightening around my neck and some bold action is required to stop the asphyxiation and give me some purpose. Current Mood: blah

That is easily one of my top ten favorite comics ever.
|Traveling for work...
is kind of the best thing ever. I attended a conference for a new drug study that we are helping to conduct. This does not sound like a lot of fun, but it ended up being a lot of fun because the conference was in Las Vegas, and the company was paying for everything. I had some amazing food (Sushi and fancy
Mexican), saw a free show (KÀ
was probably one of the coolest things I've ever seen live, to the point where I am afraid I might be a fan of Cirque du Soleil), and they provided money to use in our free time. Also, I loved being put up in the MGM Grand, and have decided I love Vegas because it is so God awful tacky and over the top. It felt like walking in a world of new money trashiness and camp, so I just ate it up. I also walked through various hotels and attractions up and down the strip for about six hours on Wednesday night. The conference was actually pretty useful, and should really help with the study, but mostly I just want them to bring me back to Vegas on their dime.

|Come see me eat nipples
Yes, it's juvenile and kind of long, but it made me laugh outloud.
