13 on that list... I guess I have some reading to do!  :)

guess what?! I hate you.

I know I haven't posted in a long time.... but I need to vent.

GLENN BECK IS SUCH A FUCKING RACIST BIGOT!!!!!

ARGH!!!!

need some proof?  here are just a few examples.  But feel free to watch his show any time if you need more convincing.

"This president I think has exposed himself over and over again as a guy who has a deep-seated hatred for white people or the white culture....I'm not saying he doesn't like white people, I'm saying he has a problem. This guy is, I believe, a racist." –on President Obama, sparking an advertiser exodus from his FOX News show, July 28, 2009

"The only [Katrina victims] we're seeing on television are the scumbags." –"The Glenn Beck Program," Sept. 9, 2005

"I have been nervous about this interview with you because what I feel like saying is, 'Sir, prove to me that you are not working with our enemies. ... And I know you're not. I'm not accusing you of being an enemy, but that's the way I feel, and I think a lot of Americans will feel that way." –interviewing Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN), the first Muslim U.S. congressman, Glen Beck's show on CNN's Headline News, Nov. 14, 2006


I'm so tired of idiots parroting his ideas around like they are gospel.  Guess what, people?!  Glenn Beck doesn't know what the fuck he's talking about half the time!  I dont' have a problem with him because he's conservative, I have a problem with him because he makes all conservatives look as bat-shit crazy as he is.  He also has the audacity to criticize other fringe right-wing nutjobs because they aren't agreeing with HIM.  Who watches this asshole?  GRR!

Obama addresses America's youth

http://www.thedenverchannel.com/news/20776160/detail.html

Please read the transcript of Obama's speech to be delivered tomorrow and broadcast throughout America's schools.  I think this is a very inspirational message of confidence.  I know many people have been upset about this for a long time, but now that we know what he is planning to say, I'm not sure which part is objectionable? 

Frantic Monotony

That is what I would describe our life as.  We are SO busy, all the time!  If it's not working late, the car breaking down 3 TIMES IN A ROW, a computer breaking, a wedding, a family dinner, or cleaning, then we're grocery shopping, or falling asleep trying to watch the netflix movies we've had for 3 weeks.  The same events, over and over again.  But happening often enough that we can't seem to get ahead.  We can't keep on top of the dishes and the laundry and the housekeeping because we're so flipping exhausted when we get home that we have been known to fall asleep at 8pm.  (And for the record, the alarm clock goes off at 5:30.  So the day is long.)  

Bitching and moaning aside, I am so happy right now in life, I can't even describe it.  I have goals and dreams and I really feel like I'm working to achieve them.  That I'm making tangible steps toward what I want for myself. Hooray! Adulthood isn't so bad after all!




On an unrelated note, I deleted my other blog (RandomRittenhouse) for a few different reasons.  I plan to start a new one called Apple Blossom Time soon, but I am not quite ready. 

I can't find my paints, and I really want to finish my painting... I know I hid them somewhere last time I had to quickly clean the house for company, but they're not in any of the closets, and they're not in my crafting room or anywhere I normally stash things.  Not really sure why I threw that in here, but just in case anyone has ideas...

talk to you soon!

Aug. 21st, 2009

Holy Wow... I haven't written a word for 6 weeks...

yikes.  sorry.

not your typical meme

stolen from Barking Mad

1. What bill do you hate paying the most?
I would have to say the Qwest bill, and the reason is this:  We are overpaying. We know we are overpaying.  We don't feel that we have a lot of options on that subject.  We're overpaying because we do not need a landline phone at all (the only calls we ever get on it are snarky telemarketers or bill collectors for someone who used to have our number), and we also do not get adequate internet service for the $60/month we are shelling out for DSL.  We could switch to Comcast, but truth be told I have heard just as many bad complaints about their service as I have about Qwest, and at least we can bundle the one good part of this bill (Direct TV, who has very helpful and knowledgeble customer service) with the other two mediocre parts. 

2. Where was the last place you had a romantic dinner?
Depends on your definition of romantic.  If you mean a fancy restaurant, then it would be my birthday.  If you mean just a nice evening then it happens all the time since I graduated!

3. Last time you went to the movies?

Katie and I saw My Sister's Keeper, and it was pretty good.

4. When is the last time you got drunk and danced on a bar?

Never, although the last time I got drunk was Jesse's birthday at Lodos. 

5. Name of your first grade teacher?
Ms. Kircher   Nativity of Our Lord Catholic School

6. What do you really want to be doing right now?
Spending time with Dustin, but alas - he is asleep.

7. What did you want to be when you were growing up?

A dentist, a nurse, a vet, or a firefighter

8. How many colleges did you attend?

1, (and if you count the 2 summer semesters I completed, I took the equivalent of 4.5 years of coursework in 4 years. blech)

9. Why did you choose the shirt that you have on right now?
I did all the laundry in the house today, so it was clean.

10. If you could move anywhere where would you go?

I don't know... I really love Colorado so much, but I feel like I would like to live abroad for a while, possibly in England or Australia...  Not that those countries have anything remotely to do with my future career goals or anything like that...*
