another one for the history books...
Just blew the last game of chess online, forgetting I set a timer when I mostly play without -- and Ding! But then I'm driving a cab in an hour and I really don't have any time for this nonsense anyhow.
Last night was the slowest shift I've had since starting with the company (netting me all of a coupla Jacksons) and I'm getting the sense that Obama's right, that it's gonna get worse before it gets better. All very disturbing, thank you.
I have images of breadlines in front of billboards depicting American prosperity and my being too weak from hunger and depression to not give a shit about the irony anymore. Then I snap out of it, sample some caviar and sparkling wine and I'm all better.
That last sentence is meant to be ironic too.
