We've all heard the question "Can God make a rock so big He can't lift it?", but this one just passed through my brain and I think it's much more interesting.
Can God make a temptation so great He can't avoid it?
Today was more or less ruled by anhedonia (for those of you coming in late, Merriam-Webster defines anhedonia as "a psychological condition characterized by inability to experience pleasure in normally pleasurable acts"). There wasn't a lot that happened today which gave me any kind of pleasure-fun-buzz. In fact, in thinking about it…nope, not a damn thing. Reading, watching, playing, listening…none of it was able to draw any kind of affirmative reaction.
From a review in Locus: "So go out and buy the Top Ten trade paperbacks and all the other ABC books. Alan Moore simply isn't just the greatest writer to ever write comics. He's one of the world's greatest living writers, period." Damn right. Where do I sign up to nominate Mr. Moore for the Nobel Prize for Literature?
This anhedonia is more annoying than anything else. I try to keep a fairly strong cap on my emotions anyway, but when one of the ones that I WANT to be in contact with goes on the fritz and disconnects itself, it's irritating, bordering on infuriating.
Oh, and this was a nice bonus: today was the first time I really started thinking about looking for a new job because my project is ending (April 27, get your tickets now). While I dislike my job as it is, I don't particularly think I want to be unemployed again-I've grown used to having money, and being able to, y'know, buy things.
Today's Link Of The Day is, due to my increasing ineffability, BuddyWeiserman.com. See how they conned the con man! Marvel at the lengths to which they went for their hoax! Learn something about West Africa, if you can! http://www.buddyweiserman.com/
