I was watching CNN today and they had this big long debate about what should be done about Michigan and Florida’s primaries. Ok… THEY CHOSE to have the primaries EARLY and they KNEW that the votes would NOT be included in the delegates. What’s the confusion here?
So now, there’s all this debating going on about the fact that millions of people’s voices are not being heard and outrage and how is this democracy, etc etc etc.
Ok, shall we repeat? THEY CHOSE TO HAVE THEM EARLY! They KNEW that the votes WOULD NOT BE COUNTED. They broke the rules and now they are crying FOUL? I think NOT! They want to spend MILLIONS of dollars to have a “do-over”. NO! You do not get a do-over! You fully knew what the fuck you were doing when you broke the rules.
Good job Iowa… with the whole Obama thing. Not so much on the Huckabee…. WTF were you thinking?
I’m glad that Obama won there and that Hillary was in second, although if things continue like this, that probably means Hillary would be vice-president… Anyways, I really don’t like that woman, I don’t want to see her in the White House.
But the whole Hukabee? WTF! I’m glad to see that Ron Paul got 10% of the votes, 6% more then Giuliani got. Ron Paul is great. lol
The last few days have been interesting. I worked in Temecula yesterday. Annoying ass drive! 180 miles in one day for a commute! The office out there is disgusting as well! Only two people work there, but there’s 6 computer terminal/desk things. There’s soda can’s and water bottles piled everywhere and nasty stains on the carpet! The two room office has only a SMALL window in the corner, which was covered up so basically no sunlight gets into the office at all. I sure hope I _NEVER_ have to go back to that gross place!
Constantine comes back tonight which is exciting, and tomorrow we have a dinner party with some of his friends. That will be fun to meet more of them. Then next weekend we are heading out to Vegas to meet up with Zach and Amanda, that will also be exciting. I’m really looking forward to it!
“The Senate’s high-profile ethics and lobbying reform bill was sidetracked yesterday after conservatives voted against further consideration of the bill because it didn’t include an amendment giving President Bush line-item veto power, the ability to single out individual spending items in legislation for elimination.
Umm, last I checked Line-Item Veto was ruled unconstitutional back in 1998. So why are we pushing for it again?
Check out these COOL Soviet Era bus stops! The real question is why are the all out in the middle of NO WHERE?
Apparently you can still cancel your Verizon contract even if you have a txting plan. However, it seems that Cingular doesn’t want your business until the iPhone actually does come out.
Detox your diet. I’m gonna have to start having more green tea or something.
The Aids/Lifecycle Campsites have been announced.. check them out. So who’s coming to which nights to hang out with me? haha.
And now for some real news. I posted a while back that my building was for sale, etc. Well, on Monday the boss called me and I had a total Office Space moment. The boss asked that I send him a list of what I do, and how much time it takes up. I could honestly only account for about 50% of my time. Since before Christmas, no new projects have been sent to me and I don’t have any LONG TERM projects that really keep me busy. Well today, he calls me again and basically said that they want me to start working out of that office 3 days a week so that they can integrate me on some other projects down there. Because PHS hasn’t fully utilized my time like they kept talking about when I moved up here! UGH.
WHAT TO DO!? :'(
But either way, starting Monday I will be in Newport Beach M,W,F and Santa Monica T,R.
So. I talked to the Verizon people and they are NOT changing the costs to people who CURRENTLY have a TXT messaging option on the plan they have. I do sadly, so it means that I can’t get out of the contract on the material change issue. However, they ARE upping the prices on International TXT messages, so all you International people send me a txt so that I can complain about that and get out of the contract! hahaha. J/k, please don’t txt me from ot of the country! I went ahead and just changed my TXT plan from the $2.99/250 message plan to the Unlimited IN + 500 messages plan which is only $10 a month. If only I could go back to last month and apply it then!
I ended up just spending all day Sunday on the couch. It felt nice and yet lonely. I made Chicken and Rice which was amazing and then Jello for desert! Yumm!
Next weekend I really wanna escape somewhere for a camping trip.. Anyone game?
[private]Perhaps I’m reading too much into it, but Mayko randmly txted me last night saying “I am making some tea with my cute present and telling my roommate’s gf that you gave it to me”… And the point of that is? lol And then later said that he would invite me over to have some tea this week… Boys.[/private]
I know I’ve talked about Dr. Laura here before. But lately I’ve been listening to a lot of Talk Radio . It seems like I’m always in the car when she’s on. I like some of her advice, but some of it is just OVER THE TOP.
For example, this guy called in today and was asking her which of two jobs to take. Job 1, he works late (9pm) 6 days a week. But he’s home every night, sees his kids every morning, etc. Job 2, pays more, but he travels 5 days a week. Thus he doesn’t see his kids at all for those 5 days, but it means he gets 2-3 days off in a row (depending how his travel schedule works out). First.. Dr Laura seems enraged that he would EVEN consider taking a job in which he’s not home for dinner! How DARE he want to provide for his family by taking a job that he needs! WAKE UP Dr Laura, not EVERYONE can get a cushy 9-5 job. Some people have to work odd or off hours to be able to provide for thier family. At least he’s WORKING and doing something… But honestly, someone who needs to call into a radio show to be told which job to take is just an idiot anyways.
Another example, this guy called in. His wife wants him to THROW away everything from his previous relationships. Including his pictures, keep sakes, etc. This is just stupid. if the woman isn’t comfortable letting him keep things from his past, then she clearly has trust issues and needs to get over those before they get married. If anyone EVER asked me to get rid of the stuff I have from Adam, Andrew or anyone else I would be PISSED. Ugh. It was just annoying.
Last example, I swear! 🙂 A woman called in. She’d been dating this guy for 1 and a half years. Been married for a year and a half. So 3 years together total. The guy cheated on her. Dr. Laura acted like it was HER FAULT that he cheated on her! HER FAULT. Excuse me? It’s the GUYS fault that he cheated!
I disapprove of most of her advise.
I’m also really annoyed that SOO much media time is being spend on this damn priest scandal. (They should call it priestgate! hahah) Who cares what he did. Just investigate and get over it. There’s a lot more interesting news going on that SHOULD be reported at this time with elections so damn close!
And lastly. Watched the Colbert Report, and he intervied this guy who is a republican running for senate in Beverly Hills.. (David Nelson Jones) when they first showed him, I could have SWORN it was that guy, the one we dislike, from Santa Monica.. You know his name! 🙂 Fuck he’s HOT though!
