Today’s Mood

War Journal

Full disclosure: I never watched Agents of Shield. But I’m  incapable of seeing the picture above without laughing. It’s hard-coded into my disposition. Husbands disappoint you, presidents lie, and I laugh at primetime TV misfires.

A lot of years in review out there! I’ve been ducking doing one. I enjoy them, I just assume that introspection ends in learning I’m a replicant.

Maybe later.

Are you familiar with the Babylon Bee? The extremely defensive reactionary knockoff of The Onion?

i just wrapped up my second semester of teaching. It’s more rewarding than I expected. I’m having a good time with the students and management, which are the two parts everyone warns you about. I may survive this world yet.

I do worry about falling into arrested development. I don’t want to be the undergrad version of that teacher that clearly wishes they were still in high school. If that happens, I’ll take off my professor costume and walk into the snow.

I should be fine. I had a miserable run in undergrad.

Hope you’re doing alright.

The Present

The aforementioned Babylon Bee parody.

What the hell’s a Vegemorph? Find out now.

 Welcome to life as a seven.

I hope you brought a pencil The one and only true satire test is here.

The Future

I may or may not have another Amran Gowani crossover coming.

I do. I wouldn’t say it if I didn’t. Weird move, really.

This month’s 1-900-HOTDOG column is…different.
