Monday Thoughts: Hokies Searching for Rock Bottom

My mind has been roaming around to a lot of different subjects over the weekend, so rather than make this week’s column an over-arching summary of last Thursday’s action and its context in the season … and all that … I figured I would just touch upon various topics.

In case you missed my post on the Lounge last Tuesday night, I stuck a knife in my thumb while attempting to carve a pumpkin. The doctor, while stitching it up (four stitches), remarked that I didn’t do things halfway. It was an ironic statement, considering that yeah, I had sliced about halfway through my thumb pad. More like a third of the way, but it wasn’t serious in the grand scheme of things, and six days later, it doesn’t really affect my typing. Who knew that you don’t really use your left thumb that much when typing?

Having said that, I haven’t tackled a 6-7 page article, either, so we’ll see how this goes.

At this point, I think we can all agree on a few things.
