meanwhile angela, siya, and i walked our butts off at queens centre, entering empty handed, coming out empty handed. i promise i am never shopping on BLACK friday anymore. it gives me headaches. lines snakes and people galore.
post thanksgiving: food is always good at the yungs. i have plenty to be thankful for. i should express gratitude everyday and not only on the day of thanks. lately ive been an obtuse, obnoxious, shape at home.
first order of business, in us history yesterday, we were talking about ol’ abe lincoln. yes, the 16th president in the us of A, who interestingly enough, had a psychotic, mentally unstable, mind. check it:
“he was a sad looking man; his melancholy dripped from him as he walked…the perpetual look of sadness was his most prominent feature” -william herndon
“still he was the victim of terrible melancholy. he sought company and indulged in fun and hilarity without restraint, or stint as to time. still when by himself, he told me that he was so overcome with mental depression..” -robert wilson
vibrated an iron sting in my heart
mr lincoln: what a scary monkey face.
secondly, i jacked this off someone’s site, someone who would never happen to land his eyes on this puny blog. nevertheless, i took this pitch/tone deaf test, and i’m not tone deaf so woohoo. take it and you might just learn that you are tone deaf…haha. i took it twice and the second time i did tons better.
thirdly, ITS FRIDAY!
Postscript: this suckers gonna be under my christmas tree
National Geographic wrote about a little town in Laredo, Texas, nearby the border of Mexico. They have this annual Martha Washington Pageant which is extraordinarily lavish and extravagant. I found the above picture striking.
I think it’s stupid how people get scared of ruining the innocence of children. They will never be innocent. Like fact 3 in “20 things you didn’t know about Seasame Street.” So what if they get scared, kids will have more things to be scared of. Finally, they dispelled the myth: Bert and Ernie aren’t gay.
i know no one cares about God vs. science, but if you just happened to care and havent seen Time Magainzes cover, read the debate between francis collins, a christian geneticist, and dawkins, an athiest biologist (i forgot his first name). you cant read the whole article online but id gladly give free viewing pleasures, no charge. tell me what you think.
and the democrats sweep the house, i think the senate too. i know bush isnt the best president ever, hardly, but the things he the social issues he believes in are critical and important. rumsfeld steps down too, about time dude.
i posted this awesome scarf somewhere else before but LOOK AT THIS THING AGAIN!
i missed my daily dose of wentworth miller last last week, but fox streams their episodes WITHOUT commercials, except a stupid burger king one that lasts like 20 seconds. if you are a time management freak, watching these episodes days later SAVES YOU 20 MINUTES.
