Well, technically it’s not the Killing Tree anymore… see, Learning Tree International used to print all their powerpoint slides on ordinary overhead transparencies, glued to a piece of paper you tear off and throw away before using the slide. Which meant at least 500 pieces of wasted paper per course. Now, they’ve finally upgraded to a digital projector hooked up to a computer’s video output. Let’s hear it for the environment!
And let’s hear it for me doing an hour and a half combined driving through some of the most evil, mean-spirited traffic that this damn state can provide. Every day. All week. Getting home late and going in early.
It’s gonna be a suck-ass week, folks, so bear with me.
At least WWE Raw was good tonight. Some real twists and strong moments. But once again, it had the same crappy WWE Standard Flaws that the show always has… refusal to shuffle the ranks any signifigant amount.
I was NOT happy at the double title switch at the end, even if I should’ve seen it coming… when will Vince learn that just because you’re 300+ pounds and a ‘WWE Original’ instead of an ECW or WCW import that you don’t deserve an unstoppable push from hell? What good was it to have Triple H beat Jericho last night, for instance? Or Taker, old as the hills and lacking the nostalgia power of Hogan, to take the belt? Or RVD to get such a strong momentum today, even beating down Taker at the start of the show and getting in LOTS of offense on the Awesome Noselling Machine, getting that lame-ass dusty finish? UGH. ELEVATE THESE GUYS! Get the young blood in! Give them some wins! Do SOMETHING other than crush them in favor of your tired, overexposed old guard!
…but nobody really cares about me ranting about wrestling in this journal, so I’ll shut up now.
Hopefully have some UE to read tomorrow. I’m not wholly sure how to close off UE07 and I’m actually tempted to cut it there, but we’ll see. I also gotta write up the plot to UE08… that’s gonna be hard, particularly with this corporate training sucking my will to live.
Bleh. I’m going to bed. Later.
