Fuck you, Murphy!

I was going to tell you all about how I can't feel so bad about my PhD because there is now someone in my department in a far worse position than me (when other people's misery is greater than yours, you tend to feel better, after all). I was going to go on about how things are okay, not too stressful, just boring.

And then FUCKING Tuesday happened, and FUCKING Murphy with his FUCKING laws had to leap up and spoil everything. Sure, a lot of what has happened today is my fault, but it wouldn't kill the universe to not have everything hit the fan on the same day, would it?

I'm in trouble at work, I have sooooo much work left to do, and I have not enough time to do it in. I was on top of everything, relatively speaking, and then today hits and suddenly I'm way behind and haven't done enough work and have pissed everybody off and everyone is chasing me up for STUPID things.

I just want to ignore it all. But I know I can't.

Fuck it. Fuck it all.

The worst part is, I know what would cheer me up, but that would be irresponcible and selfish of me.

Serves me right for dancing with the devil.

I feel sorry for Murphy... he gets blamed for so much, and most of it is Finagle's fault.

Finagle's Law states, "If anything can go wrong, it will".

Murphy's Law states, "If there are two or more ways to do something, and one of those ways can result in a catastrophe, then someone will do it".

Murphy's Law is actually about idiot proofing your designs. If you have a plug that should go together one particular way, don't make is symmetrical and label which way it should go, instead make it asymmetrical. It originated in 1949 when testing human tolerances to acceleration, and the person fitting the accelerometers to the sled put all 16 in backwards.

So really, what happens is that Finagle's Law leaps up and spoils everything when Murphy's Law has been overlooked or ignored.
