Naama: So Emo

(no subject)

I was doing book-reservations for what ever exams I'll still have time for this semester. And what should I find among them, as required reading for a course that's compulsory for me? Alasdair MacIntyre's After Virtue: a Study in Moral Theory.

What of it, you ask?

His writing seriously irritates me. Of the two books that I've ever hated reading so much that I actually had a violent reaction toward them, throwing them all the way across the room as I had finished, his was one*. He might well have been the reason I switched away from Philosophy, because I was so pissed off taking that last exam.

'Twas the land of milk and honey, my new faculty. Book after book of enticing secrets, whispered temptations of 'learn more, you want to learn more!'

And now.


Why are you the bane of my existence, Mr. MacIntyre? Why?

* Yes, maybe I take having dialogue with a text a tad too far.
Naama: So Emo


I made an omelette today. Frozen peas, corn, red pepper, half an onion and turkey-cheese sausage bits with salt and bell-pepper. I usually mix the eggs with a little bit of water first, and then mix all of the ingredients together before pouring them on the pan. I hate having those white spots in my omelettes, and that seems to eliminate them.

Pretty low-cal, if that's of concern to you.
