long day. tired. exhausted from little sleep. full moon FUHREAKS in all freaking day, including a guy that yelled at me, calling me stupid because i asked a SIMPLE question (he wanted to know how to use his printer without having a computer.... not one that had the little camera memory stick inputy thing, either, just.. a printer. by putting in a piece of paper. THAT'S IT. i told him i wasn't exactly SUUUUUURE how to work that, and he demanded to talk to someone else.), a lady in hot pink stretch pants that stole something, being chased down the parkinglot by Manager Tony yet again, and inumerable other mini stressful situations.

for those NOT living in the area and NOT having it shoved down your throat every 2 min, Mt. St. Helens, approximately 55 miles from my house, has now been upgraded to a 70% chance of an eruption in the next few days. i find this highly interesting.

watched the presidential debate. felt Kerry shirked the questions somewhat (why do you think bush is a liar? well... i feel he isn't being candid with the public. VOTE FOR ME! I'LL MAKE THINGS BETTER! VOTE FOR ME!), but otherwise was extremely calm, professional, and absofreakinglutely wonderful.

Bush, on the other hand, i felt seemed much like a rich, spoiled brat who was defending his sandbox. "well.. well.... YOU topsyturviertopsyturvey!!! YOU FORGOT POLAND! but the war... i sent the troops I SENT THEM! I AM THEIR LEADER! why? BECAUSE I'M PRESIDENT! THAT'S RIGHT! *poutpoutpoutpout* it's MY freaking playground, and you! you're trying to play with my ball! DAAAAD! *sniffle*" the split screen shots of his reactions to kerry's speaches were classic and wonderful. i giggled.

my favorite quote? "war is HARD. i KNOW it's hard! i read the casualty reports every day! i watch t.v.!"

O_O

hrm. veitnam vet.... a guy who knows war exists because he's watched M.A.S.H. a few times.

i'm sleepy and cranky. send me to bed.

ah, well. wish i'd known when it was on.

interestingly enough, i had a few people that told me they though Bush beat down Kerry in that debate. i *almost* wish i'd seen it so i could give my own personal opinion, but i'm actually pretty glad i didn't because i might have given myself an anyeurism arguing over it with people.

the second debate, i can SORT of see why people thought that it was a tie. SORT of.

the first and the third, though, i think kerry won, hands down. i mean, for pete's sake, bush was hissing (unless you really want to call that hideous sound of his a laugh) and DROOLING. and the whole litmus test thing. egads.

i had still been convinced that kerry won the second one, though, because of bush showing very little respect for the moderator or the people asking the questions.

some printers can be used as copiers.

but that's giving the idiot the benefit of the doubt.

i even asked him if he was trying to copy something, which caused him to talk to me as i were even MORE stupider ;)

Maybe he just wanted a demo plot from the printer. If you hold down certain keys while turning the power on, many printers will print a demo plot even if they are not connected to a computer.

While you are probably not in immediate danger if an eruption occurs, you are close enough to the volcano for the air to become very nasty to breathe. Hopefully everything settles down up there.

he had said that he knew how to print the regular size, but he needed to know how to calibrate it to print something smaller, because they had something smaller in size to print out.

mom swears that she smelled the volcano erupting yesterday, but i don't think so. the wind blew it away from us, not towards us, so i'm certain that whatever she smelled was something more from the ghetto.

but i didn't burst her bubble ;)

Very similar to the way you use your VCR without your TV sir..

except with the vcr, it gets more info than from a dead computer.

i LOVE that analogy, thank you :D i told it to all my coworkers (at least, the ones who would listen!)

Not to pop your bubble, but M.A.S.H. was set during the Korean war, but it was definately anti- 'nam.

i know M.A.S.H. was in the korean war. it was just an example of watching war on t.v. vs. living it.

Bush's quotes about understanding how hard the war is, was classic. Glad you posted it. Visiting the family of a soldier who died, ONE visit, mind you, is not understanding the situation. Grief and pain last much, much longer than that.

I did like how Kerry made the comment about how Bush the first, did not get in too deep in Iraq, because he saw no viable way to get out later. But I do think Kerry is too vague on how he is going to do all these things.
aubkabob
Oct. 2nd, 2004 06:45 pm (UTC)
i agree about the vagueness, but i keep telling myself that he has only 2 minutes of availablity to discuss it, and an entire 4 years of damage to correct.

plus, although he's a politician and you can never tell what they say vs. what will happen, at least he's showing he's PASSIONATE about changing things.

and, funnily enough, it was the first time i had ever seen kerry talk anywhere at any time. i went into the debate just being anti-Bush.

i came out being Pro-Kerry.

i was very impressed with his poise, passion, and professionalism. i love how instead of glaring or huffing at the opponent when bush gave his retort or said anything, he would calmly stand there, listen, and TOOK NOTES, then throwing everything back at bush his next turn.

beautiful.

Uh huh. War is hard! Taking all that vacation during your mostly wartime term must be hard work!

Also: Loved when Kerry praised Chimpy's daughters, mentioned how they say some outrageous things, and Chimpy slips in with, "Well, I try to keep them on a leash," and Kerry says (paraphrasing) that he's not going to touch that.

Of course not. *cough*AbuGharaib*cough*

I dunno about Kerry shirking questions. I can only imagine being handed a "why do you think Bush a liar?" question and being tempted to incredulously blurt out, "Look at him. I mean, geez, look at him. Would you trust this man with a lemonade stand?!?" I thought he handled everything very statesmanlike.

LMAO. in retrospect, yes, i totally see that.

i was also playing everquest with it playing in the background, so...

Hm, well according to the news sites, it already had a small eruption today.
It's interesting, though, given that there has been some concern up here that Mt. Spurr might go off. Something must be going on on this side of the continent.

i was wondering that, meself, what with all the volcanic activity, californian earthquakes, etc.

maybe we're set to all fall into the ocean ;)

Well I guess we'll all have a good swim then. I'll see you there!

But you're okay right? Since it's gone off twice now, at least?

oh yeah, quite good, even though she's now drooling magma at a massive rate.

they say that they're still expecting a massive blowout, but that it will just "shoot straight up and not harm anything."

um. aren't these the same scientists, who, even up until the day of the first eruption, swore up and down that she wouldn't blow at all?

it erupted! YOu alright? I want updates.

Oct. 2nd, 2004 06:51 pm (UTC)
hee hee, i'm perfectly fine. i could see it from my work if we went outside, it looked like a tiny little mushroom cloud. the wind didn't even blow it in our direction.

pretty uneventful, if you ask me. i wish the local news would shut the hell up about it, unless there was anything NEW to tell. now they're all recapping CONSTANTLY the original blast in '80 and the tiny burp again in '86. egads.
