For someone such as I, who watched anime on Adult Swim until 1:30 a.m., awoke at 8:30 a.m. to watch My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, and then awoke again at noon for day, Sunday was so busy thereafter that I did not write any post as I had planned to do. Denton had asked me on Friday to help him with his college mathematics course on Sunday, and I am not complaining, but I did not realize that that afternoon I would be watching Inception on Denton’s mobile phone while he and our friend Sam worked on a Honda motorcycle, which belonged to our other friend Jimmy, while Jimmy was in turn working on a car for someone else.

For someone who is not complaining, I could indeed sound like the opposite. The serious post that I meant to write Sunday will be written tomorrow, so the absence of any post on Sunday, September 11, 2011 can be appropriately perceived as a moment of silence. As in improv, I may reverse-justify my actions.
