One of Those Everyday Days

August 23, 2007

What I did over my summer vacation:

“So I was sitting in my cubicle today, and I realized, ever since I started working, every single day of my life has been worse than the day before it. So that means that every single day that you see me, that’s on the worst day of my life.”

“What about today? Is today the worst day of your life?”

“Yeah.”

“Wow, that’s messed up.”

IMDb: Office Space (1999) – Memorable quotes

Also in the world today: Amazon.com emails Your Montag to tell there’s a sale on the CD-ROM “New Classic Edition” of Orwell’s 1984.

[Emphasis (i.e. links) added.] Product Description
Orwell depicts a gray, totalitarian world in which privacy does not exist, news is manufactured according to the authorities’ will, and those with unorthodox ideas are brainwashed or put to death. Orwell’s 1949 nightmare vision of the world we were becoming is still the great modern classic of negative Utopia. [Amazon.com: 1984: New Classic Edition]

What “negative”? I for one embrace our future totalitarian overlords.
