3:05 pm - Book List
In the mist of trying to read 3 books at once, I finished one so far. The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer jumped out at me from the Young Adult New Fiction section at the library. It was pretty good in my opinion. A bit on the supernatural side. Some parts were a bit hokey, but I had to remind myself it was geared towards teens. When I got to the end it was a bit disappointing that it ended, but turns out a sequel will be released in October. *waiting* Wonder if this is could be the next teen book/movie crazy...

1. Here Comes Trouble by Michael Moore (1.3.12)
2. Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? by Mindy Kaling (1.11.12)
3. Love Lies Bleeding by Jess McConkey (1.28.12)
4. The Next Always by Nora Roberts (2.14.12)
5. Now You See Her by James Patterson (2.23.12)
6. The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin (3.18.12)

9:17 pm - Office Moron Test
Found this quite amusing...

The janitor with the chip on his shoulder says 'boo'.
Which Office Moron Are You?
Rum and Monkey: jamming your photocopier one tray at a time.

Which Office Moron Are You?

Whaddup, lil Janitor. I see you have a chip on your shoulder the size of Montana.

It's not enough that you have to watch those overpaid idiots go about their inane business every day on twice your salary, as you relentlessly clean up after them. It's not enough that they refuse to say more than a quick "hi" to you day after day, and never invite you on the office outings or give you so much as a Christmas card. But the things they leave in the toilet, on their chairs, across their keyboards and clinging to the outsides of their wastebaskets like snot to a child ...

... it's enough to make you shudder with grief and fury.

And shudder with grief and fury you do, behind their backs, in corridors and broom closets. Some day, you'll get your own back. But you're not going to play their underhanded games; you're not going to stoop to their stuffy little level. You're going to take the moral upper hand and screw them over one day so bad that they won't know what hit them. And until then?

Until then you wait.

3:56 pm - My two cents.. you've been warned
I try to stay away from political issues and talk. Mainly due to the fact that I am just very inexperienced in that field. Plus, I stay away from all those news channels an one sided opinions that are always blaring on CNN, FOX, etc. I'd rather listen to both sides, unbiased. Ok, so now given my disclosure, here's my take on this HUGE health care issue.

First off, I would consider my self a democrat (I hear the moans already). Yes, I believe as us American's we should not only help ourselves but attempt to help those less fortunate than us. And I'm not talking about those that just simply do not give a rat's ass and plan on living with assistance for them and their 12 babies they constantly pop out to get more government assistance. Those people need to be shipped to a 3rd world country and fight for their own well beings. But anyways. I do think it is a complete shame that our country consists of millions of people that don't have and/or can't afford health insurance. And yes, I do think it should be a right as an American. And yes, I will us the current cliche of re-iterating as an American we have the right to free education, why not health care for our well-being. Many countries, including Canada, France, etc, use a universal health care program, sure they pay for it through their taxes, and sure there are probably areas that their programs could be improved (as with anything), so why can't it work for the United States? The US is spends so much money on health care but yet so many people are without that benefit. With the current state of our economy and such a high jobless rate, health care is going to be the last thing people are going to pay.

The real issue(s) should be to examine the insurance companies and prescription drug makers. The government seemed to have done a good job at picking and choosing who/what they want to "bail out". How have bailing out the banks helped American's in general? Only made it harder for us to obtain loans and who really knows how these new credit laws REALLY help the consumer. The auto industry... how did the government really help bail out GM?? Most of these "American made" cars (Ford, GM, Chrysler) are made outside of the US, or at least the parts to make these cars. I know personally how these fall out has effected people.

This country (Washington, specifically) needs to get things in order and actually HELP the people of the United States. We, as a whole, can not dig out of the debt our leaders have caused. Communities are becoming ghost towns, 100s of people are applying for jobs they normally wouldn't have in the past, just hoping for a small steady income. All the while, Washington big-wigs, CEO's, etc are riding around in brand new cars, flying in personal jets, and laying their head down in the king sized mahogany wood bed.

I've obviously gone way off on this. But I don't believe Washington is/has looked out for the general public. This country has not been led by how the founding fathers had intended it to. And granted, things need to change with the times, but still. Our country is being ran BY the big conglomerate companies. The "people behind the scenes" in all different departments in Washington come from these big corporations. Banking, health care, commerce, hell, even agriculture. If you look into the background of those in the departments, they are the ones running the country and looking out for their own interests, not of us as a whole.

Anyways, this country has a very long ways to get back on its feet. And even if it get to that point, it will never be the way it once used to be.

9:44 am - Found once again...
Knowing me, I probably posted this before, but as I continue to go through filed emails, I came across this and decided to post again.

Just for today I will try to live through this day only,
And not tackle my whole life problem at once.
I can do something for twelve hours that would appall me,
If I felt that I had to keep it up for a lifetime.

Just for today I will be happy.
This assumes to be true what Abraham Lincoln said,
"Most folks are as happy as they make up their minds to be."

Just for today I will adjust myself to what is,
And not try to adjust everything to my own desires.
I will take my luck as it comes and fit myself to it.

Just for today I will try to strengthen my mind.
I will study, I will learn something useful.
I will not be a mental loafer,
I will read something that requires effort, thought and concentration.

Just for today I will exercise my soul in three ways:
I will do somebody a good turn and not get found out.
If anybody knows of it, it will not count.
I will do at least two things I don't want to do just for exercise.
I will not show anyone that my feelings are hurt.
They may be hurt, but today I will not show it.

Just for today I will be agreeable,
I will look as well as I can, dress becomingly,
Talk low, act courteously, criticize not one bit,
Not find fault with anything,
And not try to improve or regulate anybody except myself.

7:09 am - RIP
They say death happens in 3's, I never understood why they say that. But it's sad to hear about 3 great people (all in their own way) have passed away this week.

Ed McMahon (born in Detroit) 1923-2009, age 86

Farrah Fawcett, 1947-2009, age 62

Michael Jackson, 1958-2009, age 50 (His infamous white sequin glove and hat from Thriller is on display at Hitsville, USA in Detroit)

A sweet grandmother telephoned St. Joseph 's Hospital. She timidly asked, "Is it possible to speak to someone who can tell me how a patient is doing?"

The operator said, "I'll be glad to help, dear. What's the name and room number of the patient?"

The grandmother in her weak, tremulous voice said, "Norma Findlay, Room 302."

The operator replied, "Let me put you on hold while I check with the nurse's station for that room."

After a few minutes, the operator returned to the phone and said, "I have good news. Her nurse just told me that Norma is doing well. Her blood pressure is fine; her blood work just came back normal and her
physician, Dr. Cohen, has scheduled her to be discharged tomorrow.

The grandmother said, Thank you. That's wonderful. I was so worried. God bless you for the good news."

The operator replied, "You're more than welcome. Is Norma your daughter?"

The grandmother said, "No, I'm Norma Findlay in Room 302. No one tells me s**t."
