worst post ever.

I thought about writing a post about equality and how far our country has come, but still has miles to go blah blah blah, but I have today off.  Thanks, MLK!  Also, it is cloudy, overcast, wet, and cold out. Therefore, I have very little motivation or energy to climb up on any sort of soap box.  This laziness is only compounded by the fact that I was out until the wee hours of Saturday night turned Sunday morning dancing on a speaker box...

Seriously, the only thing I've done all morning (which started a mere 30 minutes ago) was make coffee.  Considering it was a French press, you can imagine the kind of concentration that took!  

So, I'm doing absolutely nothing today and that includes writing a post that probably should just be deleted, but that little disclaimer was built right into the title of this post.

If anything on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, I can offer you these tips: if you are off work today, I hope you accomplish more than I do today.  (Showering alone will most surely accomplish this feat).  And, if you are NOT off work today, go up to your boss and call him or her a racist.

I promise to have a good post on Wednesday.  Seriously, it'll be so good my writing career and/or Internet infamy is nearing.  I can smell it.  Or that could just be me.  I really have neglected my hygiene this long weekend...

PS - I grew up Lutheran.  For some reason, growing up, I thought Martin Luther (German priest who got this denomination rolling and martyr) and Martin Luther King, Jr. ('I have a dream' civil rights activist and martyr) were the same person.  Let's add history to the list of things I wouldn't consider my strengths.




UPDATE: My friend, TJ, was doing nothing today as well.  So, I decided to be productive.




This was actually A LOT of work.  I have never done video with my new camera and I get really anxious and nervous when I'm about to try and scare someone... I usually end up scaring myself or horrible backfire situations where the scaree ends up scaring the piss out of me while I lay in wait.

My company is most definitely racist.

Sorry about your horrible company. If the fed and markets weren't closed, I would most definitely NOT be working. To make things better for you all, I'm about to update this with something that will warm your heart. That is, if my Internets EVER speeds up enough to upload this damn video!!!

Add me to the list of doing absolutely nothing today. The whole showering thing, I only accomplished that an hour ago, and that's only because I stunk. Yep, I'll admit it, I smelled awful.

The people I live with have no idea they are rasist.
I like them pretty much but I'm afraid I might tell them off when I get drunk.

One of them couldn't believe I would dance with an Arab because, you know--they stink.

One of them can't play basketball at this outdoor court I know because, you know---blacks play there and they are inherently better at sports

One of them wants to date woman who are child like, you know, like the way asian girls are, but could stand to date only his racial equal...seriously, his words.


I know I should try to help them realize how silly this is but one of them already accused me of being the thought police. I don't know if French culture is more backwards then ours or if I am just more progressive then other people I know, generally...


But I fear a drunken outburst is in our collective future..

I didn't have th day off so I totally had to shower. Womp.

I hate trying to scare people or being scared. I HATE IT. It makes me want to cry. On another note, was Florence and the machine playing in the background? Or am I crazzzy? "/

Lorraine - It is Florence! I was just turned onto her album by a friend, and haven't stopped listening since. Also, Adele's new album, '21' is as equally if not more overflowing with buckets of awesome.
