Ahhh, there's nothing more relaxing

Ahhh, there's nothing more relaxing than sitting at your desk, wearing those comfy-cozy clothes, doing a little homework, listening to the classical music channel on your digital cable, and sipping a Diet Vanilla Coke. Ok--there are a lot more relaxing things to do, but if you have to be studying, it's not too bad.

I hope everyone is enjoying their holiday weekends. The weather here isn't cooperating too well, but there are ALWAYS great movies on TV on Labor Day weekend. I'm recovering from strep throat this weekend. But, my guy buddies from undergrad are having a cookout this afternoon, and I just can't miss out. Yes Mom, I know I should stay home and rest, but I have ALL day tomorrow to recover and finish my homework. Can I Mom, can I?? And for those of you out there who don't know my buddies, they are SO entertaining that they are worth venturing out in the rain when you're somewhat sick (although a million times better than you were 3 days ago).

Well, I suppose I should post my inaugural question for commentary. What does everyone think about the main TV networks not doing a whole lot of coverage on the upcoming September 11 anniversary? When I first heard it, I thought it was a good idea. Let those who lost loved ones not have to hear the re-hash for the zillionth time.

However, the more I thought about it, the more I changed my mind. If we have to sit through hearing about Brit French kissing Madonna, much debate over the "all-important" question of whether Hillary is going to run for el presidente, and each time Scott Peterson takes a bowel movement, then why the hell shouldn't we pay tribute and devote network time to the anniversary of the worst act of terrorism on our fine soil? And furthermore, why shouldn't these networks highlight how far we've come in the war on terror in two years? Ok, so we've been having some problems with those elusive weapons of mass destruction....But we HAVE caught many significant Al Qaeda assholes.

Ok. Rant away.

Excuse the typos--not sure if I have spellcheck on this thing yet.
