I was at work today, and remember the part where I work at an ungodly hour of the day?  Anyway, I was talking with a coworker about this bailout.  He solved the problem, and I'm taking credit for it on this site. 

 

If the government is so keen on spendign 700 billion dollars, why not divide it up between every. single. taxpaying. citizen. over. eighteen?

Divided all out, that's about...oh...300,000 per person in America.  However, you have to add some stings o...

D and I broke up late last night.  It ended amicably enough, I mean, we're good friends, perfect for each other, but...it wasn't right.  I don't know why, but for some reason we just aren't right for each other.  I don't know how to explain it.

He's still buying me lunch today, though.

 

Just thought I'd update, thanks!  Have a lovely day!

Today at work my boss came to me and said, "I called a meeting at seven thirty, so finish your jobs fast.  We have some problems."

 

Come to find out that the school got a huge budget cut, and affects my boss because he has to cut back on hours that his students can work.  WE FREAKING CLEAN TOILETS!  FOR CHEESE AND CRACKERS!!!

 

Here's the deal.  Every day my boss has about 18 hours to divide between his employees.  We use about 16.  His hours ...

I think I'm all "politicked" out.  Do you like my new word?  I sure do.

I'm done with all candidates.  I'll still vote (Ralph Nader), but I'm done watching commercials of candidates bashing each other, of news stories about people and how horrible one party is over the other...I'm just over it.

That's it, that's all I have to say.

Thank you.

So about two and a half weeks ago, I was with the college radio station at our university's club fair.  At the table next to me was one of my classmates and a friend of his.  Out of laziness, the classmate will be called T and the friend will be called D from here on.

The first time I meet D, he starts making fun of me. I have very prominent veins, a phlebotomist's dream arm.  He is immediately attracted to these veins, I think he might be a vampire.  Anyway, I want to kil...

Today there was a "Meet your religious leaders" barbeque on campus.  There was free food, so of course I'm there.

I mean, I already know my bishop, but hey, free dinner.  Anyway, so all of the wards here had their own tables set up, which of course took up more that half of the space because hello!  Utah.  Then there were the other religions.

The episcopalians (sp) were giving out fruit and veggies.  I should have taken some, but I didn't.  Now I'm regretting ...

At least, I THINK that's how the song goes, I've never understood it completely.

 

Okay.  I'm ready.  I think.

There is a book.  A magic book.  It tells you all about how to love other people.  And how they love you.  And it's better than a horoscope, 'cause it's right.  It tells you that you have a special way of showing your love for others.

 

This magical book is called "The Five Love Languages."  Or something like that.  O...

Yesterday I filled up my gas tank.  See, okay, I'll tell the whole story.  I just got back from Spain, and had to work yesterday at 8 am forty miles away.  Ugh.  So I left very early to get there on time.  There was a ton of construction and traffic, so I thought I'd be late.  Nope, there at 7:30.  I had about a half tank of gas, so I went across the street to fill 'er up while I waited.  I had half a tank.  My tank is ten gallons.  I put 5 gallo...

Yes, this is a spammer, but I couldn't resist.

Maybe I should be naming this articles "Would You Ever..."

After hearing about shaved heads , new piercings, and tattoos, I'm curious.  What have you thought of doing but would never do?

Me for example, partly because of my religion and partly because I'm just a big chicken would never do a lot of things.  I know some of you would, but what wouldn't you do?

I would/have never...

My best friend is in Tennessee selling alarms.  He works every day until dark, so 9-9:30.

His birthday is on Saturday, I sent him an e-card, but he's alone, not having much success, and kind of frustrated.  His sister and brother in law are out there with him, selling...but I don't know them. 

I want to do something to let him know that I'm thinking of him, you know?  I'm broke, and don't have a lot of time to plan, but if anyone has any long-distance birthday ideas, pl...

At age ninteen, the young men of my religion are asked to go on missions.  They are assigned all over the world and spend two years serving the people they meet and spreading the gospel.  Naturally, some of them go out for the wrong reasons and waste two years of their lives, but for most I know, they say it's the best two years of their lives.


That's the background for this article.  Again, please don't fight.

As I grow older, more and more of my friends are getting calle...

I linked the site where I found this information at the top.


People keep saying that they can't vote for Barack Obama because he, among other things, went to a Muslim school when he was a wee boy and that he *gasp* knew/knows muslims.  Or even, that he IS one.  Now I know this isn't the only protestation people have against the poor guy, but let's just examine it for a minute.

 

What is Islam?: The name of the religion isIslam, which comes from an Arabic root word meani...

Recently I learned that I belonged to the Cult of Satan. Right on.
Cool, I've never been in a cult before. I feel all special now. I mean, I never thought of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints as a cult. We don't do 'culty' things, I don't think. Let's Wikipedia it, shall we? My response in bold.
The Merriam-Webster online dictionary lists five different definitions of the word "cult."[15]

1. Formal religious veneration- Um, like...a religion? Like, Baptists, Cat...

I'll be the first to admit, I'm a big nerd.  I love Buffy, Angel, Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, I'm a geek.

With that said, let's get to the main point.

Iwent to go see Prince Caspian with my family for Memorial Day.  Havingseen the trailers, I greatly anticipated two full hours of watching BenBarnes.  Little did I know.

I heard a review on the radio, where a MAN who interview Barnes said, "I got lost in his eyes."  A straight man said this.

With my mother on one ...
