I have had to stop reading about the oil spill disaster in the Gulf Of Mexico because it was just raising my blood-pressure too much, as well as making me angry. There is nothing I can do about it and it is so frustrating to see BP who is responsible running ads on the tv trying to do damage control on their public image. That was money they should be spending on cleaning up the spill and not on pulling the fake "OMG! We are so so sorry, please like us still!" act they put forth on the ads. This whole thing makes me angry and seeing the oil covered animals, marshes, and beaches royally pisses me off and makes me sad. So, I am trying to not seek out news on the event to keep myself from being constantly angry about it because the anger does nothing.
I am feeling the post-LOST sadness today as well because it is the second week in a row where there is no LOST at 9 p.m. I know this will fade and be replaced by True Blood excitement since that show started up this coming Sunday!!! That is something that I look forward to. They have another LOST Minisode out:
I love it because it hints at something that happens in the books...and looks like will be introduced this season! Yay!
My dad got a second part-time job. He has a lot of experience so he gets hired of part-time jobs dealing with the public and talking about products in garden/pet care. This new job is at Fred Meyer and he starts this morning. At least this keeps him busy and brings a bit of money in for my parents. he likes to be busy and drives people crazy when he is home all the time.
The single ladies group I went to see SATC2 with are going to Japanese food at Shogun this coming Saturday. I am not sure I will be able to go because it is all the way across town and I have no way of getting there at night. The downside of living in a city with a crappy transportation system and where everyone lives far from where I do way out here in the northern suburbs. I would love to go though because I have never been to Shogun and they cook the food right there in front of you!
And now I will attempt to head and get some food and then read a little this morning. My sleep pattern is all kinds of messed up and I am going to try to fix that starting today.
