Every Thursday I will be taking a departure from talking about books to blubbering about the nonsense of my week.
To start off the inaugural installment, I can't believe the person I've become. I have become a slave to my iPhone. The first thing I do every morning is turn that contraption on to see if I have any e-mail. Before I bought this phone, I would go days without checking my e-mail. I could care less what was in my inbox. But technology has changed my tune and not for the better. If I don't have any e-mail when I wake up I think something is wrong. Was I not important enough? Nobody cares anymore? Sometimes I reboot the phone. I know the phone goes through some dead periods. After I reboot the phone, I'm relieved to find I have e-mail!! But then I delete it all because it's usually junk mail, and I just don't want to be bothered!!! Anyone else suffer from this problem??
Tidbits: This next nugget is extremely fresh for me: Umpire Jim Joyce made a bad, bad bad, bad, bad, bad call last night. I work on the sports desk at a newspaper and everyone was up in arms over the blown call in the Tigers-Indians game. THE RUNNER WAS OUT !!! Joyce cost that dude a perfect game!! What's up with that? If you don't know what I'm talking about just watch ESPN for two seconds. The replays will be shown until the end of the season, that's how bad the call was. I'm a long-suffering Mets fan, but I was right there with all the angry Tiger fans!! On another note, I hated the Lost finale!! I felt like I had been hoodwinked after six years of dedication. Loved the 24 finale. Why make a movie? There's nothing left for Jack Bauer to do! If you want to blubber about the nonsense of your week, feel free to leave a comment!!
As always, happy reading!
