I realize that it will probably be Friday before most people read this, but that’s okay. It’s Thursday right now. It’s been a while since I’ve done a random list post (a.k.a. a cop-out), so I think it’s about time, don’t you? As I mentioned on Sunday, this has been an emotional week at work, and my brain is not feeling a serious or profound post.
What’s that? You’ve never read a serious or profound post on this blog? Oh, that’s right.
In keeping with that theme, then, here are some non-profound things:
- I love this album:
My students are always shocked if they find out I like Eminem. I tell them that I liked Eminem before they were born. I thought I was exaggerating, but then I googled it…turns out his first mainstream album came out in 1999. That’s when my freshmen were born. Ouch. So much oldness.
- Know what else is old? This laptop. Good gravy, just load the Internet, you junk monster.
- I just read this book:
I liked it. It kind of made me want to run an ultra.
- Now I’m reading this:
It’s weird. Please tell me I’m not the only one who likes an ultrarunning book more than a Pulitzer winner.
- I had to go to the elementary school the other day, and I saw this on the wall:
I nearly died. Get out of the gutter, you pervs. Those are OBVIOUSLY lungs.
- I need to eat this ASAP.
- I thought I hated both sauerkraut and olives. Then, I started the Whole30 and decided to give them another shot. Turns out, I like them both. Moral of the story: When you’re a grown-up, try the foods you hated as a kid. Maybe they are good now.
I think that’s all the randomness I have for you tonight. I had two more things, but they need their accompanying pictures, and this &@$* computer won’t load them. Another time, then.
Tell me something random about you. If you already did that list thing on Facebook and you’re my Facebook friend, you have to tell me something else.
