It’s difficult to believe that I’ve been living in Texas for almost three months now. Texas… f’ing Texas. It hasn’t been a shell shock and I’ve actually adapted quite quickly and quite well. No one has mistaken me for a local yet, and I am very thankful. The one benefit of living here has been the heat- you keep your weight down by constantly sweating and manage to get a glowing tan at the same time. Brilliant!
With the temperatures being constantly on and above the Celsius mark, I’m almost tempted to start using my cars air conditioner.
So much has gone on in the world since I’ve moved here and oddly enough I now feel like I’m in the hub of all that is going on.
In Oregon there was a sort of silence and disconnect of what was going on in society. My statement is my view only, but living in a population of over 6 million people, you become dizzy with the energy. At work I get to be plugged into the world while I research the past as MSNBC and other informative programs play in the background. My 40 minute commute has me listening to airwaves of the latest breaking news and my mind is excited with thoughts, opinions, theories and ideas.
I’m becoming awake and I enjoy daily getting to share this with people around me. I live in a very diverse neighborhood where white people are the minority and I must say I find it refreshing. I was worried I’d live in redneck central.
Any way, fortunately I surround myself with such a small group of people (work and home) that I’m constantly surrounded by open minded intellectuals. Hmmmm… or am I just saying ‘open minded’ because they think along the same lines as me? Perhaps ‘like minds’ would be the more proper term.
Okay, lets discuss topics that have gone viral. Casey Anthony. I believe the jury did the right thing based on what they had to work with. I listened to the drama unfold and no, they didn’t say she was innocent. Any way… It’s tragic and hopefully laws will change where it’s a federal offense if your child is missing and neglect to report it… especially a month later! Any way- I hate regurgitating what everyone else is saying.
Michele Bachmann- annoying mono-tone bitch I can’t stand.
Rick Perry- annoying psycho nut job I can’t stand.
Michele Bachmann… also a psycho nut job.
Eureka… about freaking time! I enjoyed the new episode and I’m excited to watch Felicia Day on it next week ^_^ I’ll always root her to Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
I watched the last space shuttle launch :’( I thought I was soooo over that part of my life, getting excited and all. I was wrong.
Throw in some of my feelings towards the bombing in India (sad and upset and it deserves more discussion than I’m giving, but I haven’t had time to find out more about it yet), the new story on having legal interference on obese children (all for it), and my sick feeling about being currently stuck on the 700 Club as I’m writing this.
Signing off for now. Must change channel!
