The Friday Five ('cause I'm looser just like the rest of you)

But before I start the friday five, quick update on my health:
Nose: Still plugged up
Sinuses: Still blocked, and I suspect there may be blood
Throat: Starting to get tight, like I'm being strangled
Body: Still aches, encluding my pinkies
General Status: So doped up on medication I can't think straight. WHEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!

1. What is your most prized material possession?
*sighs* My laptop. Yes, I know that's nerdy, but it's the truth. I judge this on the fact that it's the easiest thing to take with me in case of an emergency. And it has my life on it, papers I've writen for the past four years, pictures, my all time high score on Bubble Trouble. . . See, I would love to say my books, because I love each and every one of them. But you try carrying two full bookcases with you in case of fire/gerbil invasion.

2. What item, that you currently own, have you had the longest.
*blushes* my baby blanket Oh, sorry, you didn't hear that? Too bad.......

3. Are you a packrat?
HAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH d00d, I've been called a packrat by my brothers since the early age of five. It's only gotten worse over the years as anybody who has helped me moved can tell you.

4. Do you prefer a spic-and-span clean house? Or is some clutter necessary to avoid the appearance of a museum?
*Sighs* you guys all know why I moved out of the apartment and why I can't live with any body. . . . .

5. Do the rooms in your house have a theme? Or is it a mixture of knick-knacks here and there.
*looks around* I have rooms? As in plural?

One Minion short of an Army of Darkness

Well, my friday is quickly drawing to a close, and for that I am happy. I have work tomorrow afternoon, but that's alright, I'm down with that. I like to work.

Still feeling sick, but I'm not nearly as pathetic as I was earlier today.

My morals are starting to collied in this whole war with Iraq thing. On one hand, I do not want to go to war at all. I admire those people who are exersizing their rights to civil protest to speak their mind about the war. It is very clear, all over the world, that people do not want to fight. I can understand that, and I can respect that.

On the other hand, I don't think this war is simply about gas, or oil, or Bush feeling the need to show the world how large his dick is. Saddam Hussein is truely an insane man. He's tested weapons on his own people, he's starved his own people, and his son is just as crazy as he is. Of course, this is what "they" tell me.

Here's my problem. I don't know who to belive any more. I can't trust the media, and I can't trust the anti-media. All day long numbers are thrown at me, statistics rubbed in my face, and I don't know who's got the right. All I know is that people in another country are suffering, and shouldn't we help them? Shouldn't we do something?

But Meg, says the little voice in the back of my head, people are suffering all over the world. We tried to help them, and didn't do much good with that. Shouldn't we let them sort it all out on their own? Why do we feel that we have the power to go and fix governments when, let's face it, ours is more screwed up than a barrel full of crazed monkey weasles?

So what ARE the anti-war protesters actually suggesting we do with this situation? Just Saddam go on? Just stay out of it and when things get bad complain bitterly, break out the protest signs and do some more chanting? I don't know, I wish someone would tell me.

Peace is great and all, but somebody still has to wash the dishes.
