I woke up approximately 24 hours ago, watched the Gators lose the SEC championship, watched a room full of herbal supplements for nine hours and then stood at the door of aforementioned room for seven hours. Now here I am, sleep deprived, doing a blog post before I pass out because I know I won't wake up before midnight.
Can you say "dedication to a self-imposed writing challenge"?
You would think that Sunday's topic - the vague 'Personal' - would be the easiest because it is so broad and I could pretty much write about anything. But you would be wrong. Like 2+2=7 wrong. Then again, there is a chance that my sleep deprivation would make for a more interesting than normal post. Of course, there's also an equally viable chance that it will result in an inane, unintelligible and/or mundane post.
I just considered ending this post here, but writing a post just to tell you I wasn't really going to write a post really isn't in the spirit of National Blog Posting Month - and I'm a glutton for punishment.
Unless you've being under a rock out of wireless range, you know by now that the Gators lost the SEC championship yesterday (was that yesterday? I don't know what day is it anymore) to Alabama. For Florida fans this stings deeply. Not only was it sad to see Timmy (yeah, that's what I call him), who had experienced such a fantastic college football career, end it that way (ok, there's a bowl game but it's just not the same), but it had been so long since we lost a big game that I forgot what it felt like. No really, I'm not saying this to brag or whatever. Remember, I was a student at UF during the cursed Zook Era: I had forgotten how much it sucks when your favorite team loses.
But do you know what sucks more? Mean People. I'm not talking about the people who cheered for Alabama. I was talking about people who 'cheered' against Florida. I'm talking about the people who, having no other reason to cheer for Bama than they knew some poor Florida fan whose soul they wanted to crush, were rude insulting jerk-faces. I'm talking about one particular person who thought it was fun to tease my sister about the loss until she wanted to remove him from her Facebook friends. I mean... really... why? Grow up!
As much as I love Gator Football, it's just football. Channel all that energy and aggressiveness into something like this or anything here.
So there's my random sleep-deprived rambling for today. I hope to be more coherent tomorrow for my Things I Don't Like post... which I suppose this blog subject could also fall under...
Until next time...
