When I sailed out the door this morning, rushing off to campus to get my paper printed by the time I had to turn it in after I managed to finish writing it a whole hour before it was due, I only took an apple with me and I’m hitting the point of the afternoon where I’m so hungry it’s becoming distracting. I’m trying to think of what to say about TV or Halloween or anything and all I can focus on is when I’m going to get home and what I have in my kitchen. Very poor planning on my part, but I think that’s included somewhere in the list of graduate student stereotypes that I’m contractually obligated to adhere to, somewhere below “having ramen in the pantry at all times” but above “preferences in alcohol that you can’t afford to buy.” With that, here’s your Thursday night TV:
7:30pm: “Major League Baseball - World Series Game #2” on Fox. I completely forgot to list the first game last night and I feel like an idiot for that. My sincere apologies to the baseball fans out there.
