tv // lbd // shoulder touch

(no subject)

I'm in the school computer labs, on a Mac also known as the computer of evilness. And I'm pretty sure that this computer has AIM somewhere on it but because Macs are so useless and impossible to navigate I don't know how to find it.

I'm here so early because a girl from school, Jennifer, and I had a meeting with one of the admin folks to find out if we could do our student teaching in our hometowns next semester (we both live in about the same area; for those who know the area, I'm in Oakley and she's in Brentwood, and school is in Stockton). There is supposedly this rule that they want you to do student teaching in the Stockton/Lodi area, for the sake of convenience, but that there's this 30-35 mile range of the school that you have to be under. And we're under that. So we go to see her and point this out and she's like, well, it depends on how many people we have student teaching, and where the supervisors are who are going to be observing you, blah blah blah. And I'm like... why is it that you can never get a straight answer out of people???

Bette Midler needs better drugs

"I could stand up here and talk for hours (cheering) about ineptitude, stupidity (louder cheering), blame, in-e-qual-i-ty, global warming (cheering), the dangerous destruction of the wetlands. But if I did, what will all those other people have to talk about? I'm telling you these are -- these are not just dangerous times, these are -- these times are disastrous. We're surrounded by disasters! The war, the hurricane, the Fox News. (cheering) It just goes on and on. I get so depressed! [...] A terrible thing happened to me. Today I got a letter from the Republican Party thanking me (boos) thanking me, thanking me for supporting this administration's policies. I did what any self-respecting American of integrity and class would do, I wrote "Go f*$# yourself!" (wild cheering) I sent it back! Postage due!" [...] I would never actually pick on George Bush, because, you know, he's a big fan of mine. He came to see me in the seventies, came to a show of mine in the seventies. A coke dealer of his, uh, got him some tickets, and... (cheers) Tonight we are here to be together, to help rebuild the Gulf coast, to help -- help rebuild the soul of America, the soul of America, New Orleans, New Orleans. We have to find a way to start listening to each other, to nature, and to the rest of the world, because who wants to live with so much danger."

So was this little tirade at one of her "shows"? On her website? Nope. It was at a concert for aid to Katrina victims. What, she can't get a camera on her any other way? Pathetic.
