Whinge: A Post.” 2012. Plastic, circuit board, solder, wire, flat-panel monitor. On loan from collection of the artist.

I mean, I realize that sometimes a post is just a dud, and there’s nothing to be done.

But you’re such a wonderfully vocal and funny bunch that I was looking forward to a zany comment thread full of over-the-top invented art-speak for everyday occurrences. I guess you all had to wash your hair that night. I understand.

Tonight, I had grand plans for chicken thighs and Israeli couscous and veggies with ras el hanout and yogurt sauce followed by a post regaling you with my newly-discovered fear of random quantum events. Alas, that will have to wait, because I neglected to take into account that today is the single busiest day in my entire work year. I’m not sure when I’ll get home, but I’m sure that when I do, I’ll be lucky if I can make it through a single beer before I keel over dead on the floor. Pray for me.
