More than planned; Less than helfpulI have a post saved as a draft... unfortunately the essential information is on a piece of paper I can't find, so instead here are some random things of interest.
See ya later kiddo.
First Liverpool manager Gerard Houllier went, then out-of-form striker Emile Heskey, and now other out-of-form striker Michael Owen. Congratulations for moving on Liverpool. Welcome Rafael Benitez and, hopefully, a new era for Liverpool Football Club.
The Opening Ceremony begins in 2½ hours. I didn't see much of the last olympics while I was living in the US. We have two free-to-air TV stations covering the games, with no overlap of events, meaning more than 24 hours of Olympic coverage per day... Hopefully I'll get some sleep in the next two weeks. Several events have begun in the last two days, pre-Opening Ceremony. Highlight of the games so far? Iraq beating Portugal 4-2 in the soccer.
On a personal note, I let the deadline pass today for handing in a news story for my writing class at university. This is the first piece of assessment for the semester. I've discovered I'm halfway decent at telling friends who they should contact to get interviews for a story, but make little effort to ask and answer those same questions for myself.
[lengthy - two hour - pause for reflection here... things written, deleted, rewritten, deleted...]
Sometimes I think about getting rid of this blog. I thought perhaps here I would express what I'm really feeling. I can't. I won't. It's a choice.
I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do.
I ignored, or didn't acknowledge, my responsibilities today. I could write for pages. Instead I'll leave you confused, ill-informed and disinterested. Don't worry, it's not too far removed from where I'm at.
