finally off the sushi kick (three meals in a row, sheesh) i am now eating pizza and drinking beer. you'd think i was back in college.
i've nearly given up the ghost of cooking for myself. now and again, i will, perhaps, but it's really silly. all i need from the grocery store are juices and sodas and other drinkables. i enjoy cooking, but it is simply not practical with my current (urban, living alone, busy) lifestyle. (hehe, lifestyle. i can't even read that word without thinking of rabid anti-gay conspiracy theorists who think i have a) a 'lifestyle' and b) an 'agenda' on account of i like girls.)
i've been sucked into a right-wing blog where i am now posting lots and lots of comments of a dissenting variety. but after a bit of that, i find myself so tired. i am tired of trying to discern all of the facts through all the spin.
wake me up when november ends.
(anybody else heard the new green day album? it's pretty good. that's a quote from it, changed from september.)
however, in doing all this googling and research and such for this election, i keep running into phrases i heard in my history classes... the alien and sedition act... anti-federalism... that seemed so utterly unimportant then. who could EVER remember what the dred scott case was about? now who can forget? was it a failing of my history books or my history teachers that kept me from being interested in it then? or simply stubbornness on my part? i remember so little from those classes. i did take and pass the AP us history test, but i'm not sure how. dr. miller, i guess, made it more interesting than most. but still, i was always so much more interested in the definition of continuity at a point of a function, which i will never forget because i came up with it on my own in 10th grade with very little prompting from my calc teacher, after a discussion on limits. i don't have any memorable history moments like that. ok, i am a huge dork for having a memorable calculus moment.... so what? pthththth.
