Welcome (back) to the suck

About the only things that are going well right now are my blood sugar and Anime Detour, and after today's lunch of comfort food at the Bamboo Garden, the former is probably shot. God knows what unspeakable horrors await me on Sunday at the staff meeting. I'm severely tempted to just crawl into bed after doing the shopping tonight and just whimper quietly to myself until Sunday, but there's a volunteer meeting tomorrow as well as chebutykin's Zombiethon, and I should really put in an appearance at both.

Well, not everything is despair and gloom in the world of the Chief Wombat. Via Aaron Gleeman, we're treated to Dead Spin's "Why Your Hometown Columnist Sucks" feature, most recently featuring Bob Sansevere. I used to think Pat Reusse belonged to this category, since his Strib columns were just chock-full of vitriol, bile and just plain meanness, but after listening to him on Garage Logic and Bob Davis' shows, I've come to the conclusion that he's not that bad a guy - certainly not bad enough to get lumped in with Squid Hartman or Jim Souhan.

*That would be $8.55 for a four-piece dinner at the Popeye's in Hartsfield-Jackson International's Terminal B, plus the $33 overdraft fee. It was good chicken, but not that damn good.
