Research=Hell (and) Hell=Research

I am convinced hell will consist of one or perhaps both (if you are in need of extra punishment) of the following options:

1) An eternal research project which will never end but yet will have ever looming deadlines. There will be an eternal literature review in conjunction with an eternal research proposal and defenses and absolutely endless data collection and analysis.

2) An eternal car ride in a small compact car going nowhere. Just endless driving, FOREVER. No bathroom breaks, no getting out to stretch your legs, not even asking where you are, because you are NOWHERE. No scenery, no snacks, no magazines, just you and the car. Perhaps for extra punishment there will be a couple of people you really don’t like to fight with for eternity.

I’m not really sure which of these options would be worse. Its a toss up.

I think I need to cut back on my WOOT time

I was on WOOT again, and I found this shirt as one of the derby options to vote for. I almost laughed out loud in the library.

Therefore I:

a) want one;

b) will wear it with pride;

c) need to start dumpster diving again. I miss having more bags of salad than I know what to do with.

Hmmm, I don't know about you WOOT

I bought a WOOT shirt. Only $6.66 too, wait a minute, isn't 666 a bad number? What is WOOT trying to pull. The deal is you don't know what one you are going to get, so it could be a really crappy shirt, but its only $6.66. I probably should wait until there's one I really like and pay the extra $4 but what's the fun in that?
