Friday Afternoon Confessional: Apprised

I confess that I am tired. I confess that I am relieved that I have found a roommate and can keep my current apartment. I confess that I cleaned out the fridge last weekend and it brings me pleasure to open it and see it in its spotlessly clean state. I confess that I have a mostly empty “bachelor fridge,” but that it looks much less pathetic now. I confess that I find the Cottonelle ads on buses, which explicitly refer to the ass-wiping process, to be disturbing and inappropriate. (Example: “Too much bran today?”)

I confess that I envisioned writing much more today, but am too tired to do so.

  3. I confess to mailing it in today because it’s the last day before a much desired vacation.

  4. I confess that I’m always a little too impressed with myself when I write something for my freelance work that’s exactly the required wordcount on the first try.

  9. I confess I’m becoming addicted to the somewhat awful late 1990s X-Files wannabe TV show Millenium.

  10. I confess that I create conflict for my own entertainment. I confess that I try to pretend this is not true even though everyone already knows it is. I confess that I find it secretly satisfying that that knowledge doesn’t stop people from taking the bait.

  12. I confess that I just submitted the final copy of my dissertation for the library, meaning that literally all requirements are fulfilled.

  13. I confess that I had a confession earlier in the week, but I’ve since forgotten it.

  14. I confess that I have returned to the Middle West for the week, so that I can watch yet another cousin get joined in Holy Matrimony to some dude.

    I confess to indolence and self-justification.

  15. I confess that when I said “week” above, I meant to say “weekend.” Just in case you were curious, you know.

  16. I my more immature moments, I like loading up StatCounter and seeing the exhortation to “increase my log size.” I can’t imagine anything more satisfying. Unrelated: I also confess that is more interesting, on average, to talk to people of the clothe than it is to talk to left political/social theorists. Had a nice talk yesterday about public executions, mutilation during the Sierra Leone war, Schmitt on founding myths, American deistic civil religion, and arguments from dominion. Also unrelated: all thinking and feeling people should be absolutely repulsed and embarrassed by Peter Singer and Richard Dawkins.

  17. I confess to being a total dumbass.
