So I woke up today convinced that in the next week or so, Norv Turner would be fired. I'm setting this down in writing in a semi-public place in the event that it happens, so you can all marvel at my prescience. If it doesn't happen, then, well it should.
My other football predictions are so far looking pretty good. Maybe it's time to just start a sports blog? There are so few of those around, right?
Not much else to report around here. The Wife and I are going on a fall vacation to Boston starting on Thursday. I bought a Kindle, thinking it would make it easier to read and travel (and because Infinite Jest, the current project, is a bit of a monster, luggage-wise.) An unexpected benefit: reading on a Kindle allows you to instantly look up the meaning of any word you don't know (just hold your finger on the world in question--no need to both with getting up and going to the dictionary). I generally think I have a pretty good vocabulary, but David Foster Wallace seems to take an obscure joy in using words that, well, I imagine few people would know. So that has come in very useful. Also nifty is the ability to read his footnotes instantly--you just touch the footnote number, and you are transported there. When you're done, you touch the number again. There's no need to flip back and forth. It's really the perfect book for a Kindle.
All right. As you were.
