Yippie!

My DVD arrived today!

Now the question is... do I wait to watch it until I can do so with either (a) my parents or (b) Ginamarie?

The horror... (http://www.nytimes.com/2004/10/24/politics/campaign/24points.html?oref=regi)

To Bush-bashers, it may be the most infuriating revelation yet from the military records of the two presidential candidates: the young George W. Bush probably had a higher I.Q. than did the young John Kerry.

Collapse )

And this just goes back to the whole intelligence thing. Bush is supposedly an idiot because he has occassion to bumble his words. I remember there being some story going around in the run-up to 2000 that he was dyslexic, and he was mocked and derided for it. Yes, communication skills are important for politicans and, indeed, anyone in a 'public' line of work. But hey... I've got my own problems, with numbers (I'm likely to read "138" as "one-eighty-three" if I don't concentrate on it), and I still make a good cashier.

And as a future teacher (oh, excuse me, preservice teacher) I want to be able to tell any kid in my class that they can grow up to be President, no matter if they have speech difficulties or a primary language that isn't English or, God forbid, a regional accent that's different and distinctive... and even if they don't have their sights set on the White House, that they can still be respected.

PS: Howdy to my new friend aricadavidson!

Getting ready for work

I look quite cute today, I must say.

Also, I made scrambled eggs again this morning, this time with bell pepper, tomato and salsa.

That is all.

Kate & Leopold

"I'm that dog that saw a rainbow. Except none of the other dogs believe me."

I love this movie! The time travel stuff is silly and full of plot holes, and Meg's hair looks like crap through most of it, but I love the writing! And Duke Hugh... yum.

(no subject)

I'm watching a show on HGTV about "Extreme Halloween"... basically people who enjoy celebrating Halloween just a leeeetle too much.

I'm so jealous! I want to have the money to buy gobs of awesome creepy Halloween stuff and make a haunted house and dress up and have a Halloween party.
