This week's rambles...

It would really suck to be a man in Botswana. Their average life expectancy is HALF of what it was TEN years ago... due almost entirely to HIV. Honestly folks... is a condom THAT much to ask...

Five Whitney Houston ballads in a row is enough to make even Ghandi throw in the towel... I had my iTunes on (shuffle was off for some reason). I went through "Run to You", "I Have Nothing", "I Will Always Love You", "Exhale", and "Didn't We Almost Have it All" before I noticed that I had heard A LOT of sadness in a row. I was only half paying attention because I was studying. I started to think about all the sad things like dead puppies, jet lag, cellulite, holes in the ozone layer, epic failure on the final, and that all-important Tibetan Freedom before I thought, what on earth is going on here. OH! My shuffle is off... A quick click of the button brought about much happier music mixing... One mark in the LAME and PATHETIC category for me.

December 16th cannot come quickly enough. and January 6th is going to come far too quickly.

I'm incredibly and inexplicably annoyed by peoples' inability to distinguish between YOUR/YOU'RE and THERE/THEIR/THEY'RE and the inability to use pronouns properly, or adverbs at all. I mean really's not that deep. It takes ten minutes to learn the difference. I learned them in 7th grade and can still spit them out. I guess I should send Mr. Klempner a Christmas card this year...

Taylor Swift is incredibly annoying. Period. Paragraph. Add Lady Gaga to that list (she's a crackhead I swear).

I read pieces of Barack Obama's acceptance speech for the Nobel Prize (a perennial joke if you ask me regardless of who receives it). I actually developed a little respect for the man.

I don't know how I'm going to be able to cope with the fact that I'll be missing a Hee Haw themed Christmas party at my old job this year... What will I have to chemically alter myself with to deal with this loss...

The Lion King is still one of the greatest movies of all time.
