A Thing That Is Irritating

Do you know that there are layers upon layers of details to enter and hoops to jump in order to to log into individual online secure sites, like, for example, your cell phone provider's? Further, do you know how irritating it is to attempt to log in--after months of meaning to change your text message preferences to a more economical option--and get barraged with text messages from the system while you do so? And the most irritating thing of all is to finally get in to change things, only to find out that the menu option for the add-on features doesn't work and just spins "loading," endlessly, teasingly. Someone get me an iPhone with a master plan, stat.

Hope everyone had a nice holiday and looks forward to stellar New Year's plans. For those of you refreshing my blog while I was sitting next to you on the couch: Yes! I will update. As witnessed by the above, the important thoughts don't just trickle down like rain from the heavens, you know. There's no rushing genius or inanity.

Blog inspiration, like mercy, is not strain'd. It falleth as the gentle rain from Heaven upon the place beneath.

Merchant of Venice, high school freshman English class. We had to memorize that speech, along with a sonnet. "Shall I compare thee to a summer's day? Thou art more lovely and more temperate. Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May and summer's lease hath all too short a date." Then I forget the rest, something about how the person who this sonnet is dedicated to will now have eternal life in its words "and through this, I give life to thee." It's a shame they wasted this on me when I was 14. I failed to recognize its full genius.

Man, Shakespeare was so wise and ahead of his time.

We were too busy memorizing that great existential crisis: "To be? Or not to be?" etc. etc.
