10 Things I Think
2. It’s fall television premier week, so from here until December I’m just going to be in my pajamas watching shows everyday during the night hours. That is the life indeed.
3. Scotland voted to stay in the United Kingdom, which is interesting because America’s founding fathers had no idea that seceding from the British empire could be so… civilized. Could have saved us the hassle of a revolutionary war and everything.
4. Happy autumnal equinox, or more colloquially, the official beginning of fall season. For San Franciscans, however, it’s the beginning of our Indian summer. It is as cool as it sounds. After that we go straight to winter. I wish that wasn’t the case though, because the change of colors during autumn is one of the loveliest things mother nature does.
5. Updated my phone to the latest iOS 8 and I absolutely cannot tell the difference. Probably weren’t suppose to anyways given that the eight iteration of Apple’s mobile operating system is more a polish job than evolutionary overhaul. Thanks for the free stuff though, Apple.
6. John Oliver will win an Emmy award next year. Book it. I love his program on HBO.
10 Things I Think
1. I am currently boycotting watching NFL games on television. After last week’s cluster-fuck of events, I simply cannot continue to support a league that is so cavalier and careless with such important moral issues. I’m not sure what the impetus will be for me to reverse course, but the NFL definitely need to doing some major house-cleaning and shore up its conduct policies.
2. It may be an utterly useless skill in a word connected by wi-fi, but I now know how to crimp and make ethernet cables. Add another bullet-point to the resume.
3. Just devastating what happened to Giancarlo Stanton. Fast-ball straight to the face without catching any helmet and not bracing yourself is probably a batter’s worst nightmare.
4. Really though, now that Luca Di Montezemolo has officially vacated Ferrari’s chairman position, can we please revert the awful ‘LaFerrari’ name back to its prototype designation (F150)?
5. New York Times’ expose on the death of adulthood in American culture is a fascinating read. From my perspective, even though i’m turning 27 this year, I definitely don’t feel any more “adult” that I were back when I was 17. Quite strange, isn’t it.
