I'm sick with fever, sore and swollen throat, coughing, earache, etc... and I'm sitting in my office on solo duty. This is the second time I'm sick in two weeks, my schedule is just killing me. And now my transfer to evening shift is being delayed for an indeterminate amount of time. My mom was encouraging me to quit tonight.

On the upside, my skin is grey. I feel like an alien. It's pretty cool.

Other than that, took the psych exam this week, waiting for the results from that one. And thanks to Craven and darsovit, I'm pretty close to finished with my current programming project. It's due Monday night, but I'm pretty sure I can get it done well ahead of the deadline. I don't know about Punk Karaoke yet (Neil, call my cell at some point to see if I can come out), but I won't be panicking trying to finish it 2 hours ahead of the deadline this time.

So, yah, sorry I'm not so interesting these days. Pretty much it's stress, stress, more stress, so much stress I'm getting sick, and no end in sight.

heh, cool...

London and World Protests Oppose Iraq Occupation


Meanwhile, The US military has activated 10,000 Army National Guard troops to go to
Iraq and has put 5000 more on alert for likely service
... Soon we're not going to have a defense military left on US soil. But wait, aren't they supposed to be protecting our freedom? PLEASE DO THAT.

I went to a "Banned Books" thing this week with Wandi, which was very cool, but why I'm bringing this up: one of our local old school politicians, Tom Flaherty, spoke. He's pretty funny, very drole, and read a poem that was moreso. I really wish I could remember its name, because he introduced it as "This is a poem that gives me hope in these times," and about the fourth or fifth line is, "I want to see us fight a war that protects our safety of anarchy." There are times I love Pittsburgh. :)

fun! well, hopefully.

So, we started posting lyrics to my last post. I decided to make it a full post on its own. Let's be in high school again and repost old lyrics that apply to the current times!
