See if I care.
There are two things that have been really pissing me off in the news lately. Both of them are thorns in the paw of some really obnoxious democrat that just gets a kick out of stiring up a shit storm so he can see himself commenting on CNN.
The first is something that is beginning to die down a bit, but still bothers me : The USA shouldn't condone torturing "terrorists". Why not? Lots of people would disagree with me, but then I would remind them about the incident(s) about a year and a half ago when terrorist groups were cutting off the HEADS of American and foreign prisoners. And we can't torture a terrorist a little to get some information out of them? What ever happened to an eye for an eye? I think if that is still an applicable adage, then the United States is still the bigger man.
The second is the issue with GWB "spying" on the American people. This one REALLY pisses me off. How in the hell do you expect us to intercept certain kinds of communication without a little spying? And what the hell are these people belly-aching about anyways? They aren't terrorists, are they? Maybe a few U.S. Senators or congressman have some kiddy porn on their laptops they don't want anyone to know about.
Personally, I don't give a shit if the US is tapping into a few computers that they believe to be communicating with terrorist groups because they can fish through my computer all day long and not find anything. Where were these people when little Janey-Sue was getting fined thousands of dollars for illegal music downloads? Doesn't that mean that someone was "spying" on her?
I believe strongly in American rights. It is what is so great about this country. But, when I hear people making ridiculous arguments against the better decision for the majority, I get mad. If the US government said that from now on we monitor internet communications for terrorists and child pornographers and that could mean that anyone's information could be compromised, then I'd say BRING IT ON. As long as they weren't able to get my bank info why should I care?
And as for torturing terrorists, I think it's too bad that some poor, dumb soldier is the one that has to take the blame for it all when the shit hits the fan, but those people have no respect for us or our country so why should we be gentle with them? I do find some comfort in the fact that I think that the US military has been torturing people all along, but just haven't told us about it.

We played dirty santa in our office for christmas, and for the most part people bring nice gifts. This time, I ended up with one of the gag gifts, but the joke is on them because I happen to LIKE my fiber optic bonsai tree. I have an asian themed office anyways.... LOL Here is a pic of one like mine.....

Hi everyone. Thanks for all your well wishes and sincere concern over my pitiful little sick self. I am back at work today. I have been here for 45 minutes - can I go home now?
Yesterday - went to doc for the 4th time. Ears are infected again and I am going to see an Ear, Nose, & Throat specialist who is probably going to suggest I have tubes inserted into my ears to release the pressure.
Last night - tossed & turned. Why? I DON'T KNOW! I was dog-ass tired and yet, I couldn't sleep. WHY? I watched every 15 minutes pass by. At 4:15 Patrick woke up and he was sick too. We talked for like 30 minutes about what he should do about work (he's got the kind of job you just don't get sick days for) and then at about 5:45 I fell into a nice, steady sleep. 1/2 an hour later I woke up to my alarm clock playing BYOB by system of a down...
I must have rattled off about 20 cuss words and hit snooze...TWICE. Now, I am hardly congested, but I feel like a zombie.

So, I am sick yet again. Or I think it is more like my sickness is constant, but goes in and out of remission. I have never, ever in my entire life been so sickly and crappy before. Once, when I was 7, I was really sick and I had to have my tonsils & Adnoids removed and tubes put into my ears. That was the sickest I had ever been and now I'm moving in on that record.
1 and 1/2 months, 3 doctors visits, and approximately $200 later I still feel like shit. My sinuses are so clogged right now I think my head could just blow open. I hate this kind of sickness because it makes you totally unproductive and zombie-like. I didn't do jack crap at work today and I didn't even GO to work yesterday. Patrick should be home in like 45 minutes with some Kleenex (with lotion) for those rare moments when all the junk in my head moves.
I'm hope you are all haveing a lovely time reading about my Sinuses! :P

Patrick is at work and I've been watching that movie Garden State with Natalie Portman and Zach Braff. If you've never seen it, I suggest you do. I really like it. Only bad thing is that it makes me all weepy every single time. It really isn't a particularly weepy movie, but there is this one part when he's talking about how one day you just kind of realize you have no home to go home to anymore and you find yourself homesick for a place that doesn't exist and how crappy that feels. :( You know, I've lived on my own for almost 8 years, but when my parents moved far away and out of the only house I ever knew, that really felt wierd. The town I grew up in for 20 years is empty for me now--no one I know lives there anymore and it feels wierd not ever wanting to go back to all those happy memories. I can't go back. It would hurt too bad to look at places that I can't "have" anymore. I guess new chapters of your life end and begin at different times for different people. I just never knew how hard this one would be -- or how permanent it would feel. But, what can you do? I guess one reason why I like this movie is because I don't think about sad things very often and when I do, I guess it just feels better to hear someone in a movie say what I feel so I don't have to say it myself.

Patrick takes the LSAT on Saturday. He has been practicing SO MUCH. I know he will do well! Wish him luck!! Because I do have some lawyer folk who visit the blog, I thought you might get a huge kick out of this.
This dumb girl tried to give Patrick advice about the LSAT and it was funny because OBVIOUSLY she had no clue what was on an LSAT and had never taken one, but was trying to impress everybody. The first thing she did was give him some information about constitutional law to study for the LSAT. Um, what section is constitutional law in? Duh.
Second, she said (with all seriousness) that her "law professor" told her that in order to prepare, they should start thinking in 'legalese' for instance saying 'I concur' rather than 'I agree'.
There aer no law professors here. There is no pre-law. It just doesn't exist at this University! Also, the LSAT conists of Logic Reasoning, Logic Games, and Reading Comprehension and NOT Constitutional Law. I hate liars. I hate DUMB liars even more.
Oh, and she said that she never got her scores reported to her either. Hmm, I wonder why?

So, there is nothing (I want) to do at work and the blogs are slow as is my brain. So, guess what i'm going to do?!?!?!

I have to admit. I kinda like it.
-A Can of Air
-A Keyboard Cleaning kit (darn new mac keyboards are white!)
-JUMBO paper clips
-2006 Appointment book/Calendar thingie
Who knows what else, but I'm sure I'll get some ideas!

So, yesterday I went to the doctor for the 3rd time for the same problem. This time I got Nasonex and some decongestants.
I still feel like crap and my ear hurts like a biyatch. Why is it that decongestants make you feel like you want to sleep like you're in a mild coma or run a freakin' marathon, but nothing in-between? Meaning, why can't I get any damn work done??
