The time: 10:57am

The wait: 2 minutes (sailed through! I rule!)

The wardrobe: Joy Division “Unknown Pleasures” t-shirt; gray cords; blue New Balance sneakers

The chick in line ahead of me: totally fucking hot, a girl clearly reared on Depeche Mode and Lush, and now working, most likely, at a non-profit arts foundation or a grade school

The vote: hint: he’s actually intelligent (e.g. he doesn’t say “internets”)

Pre-vote lyric: Morrissey’s “Evil people prosper over the likes of you and me always.”

Post-vote lyric: (I kinda got into this on the walk home, sorry.)

We are the champions, my friends.

And we’ll keep on fighting til the end.

We are the champions!

We are the champions!

No time for losers

‘Cause we are the champions – of the world!

[AJS note: Break it down!]

I’ve taken my bows

And my curtain calls

You brought me fame and fortune and everything that goes with it

I thank you all!

But it’s been no bed of roses

No pleasure cruise

I consider it a challenge before the whole human race –

And I ain’t gonna lose!

We are the champions – my friends

And we’ll keep on fighting til the end
[AJS note: guitar flourish!]

We are the champions!

We are the champions!

No time for losers

‘Cause we are the champions – of the world!

Current lyric: “America — fuck, yeah!”

WHY I’M ANGRY TODAY

I suspect I’m going to be really angry tomorrow.
