I ... I ... I have writer's block. Bad.
Well, it's not so bad that I can't write at work, but I do have a lot of anxiety about if I'm growing from my work. The pleasure of putting the words together for ANYTHING is starting to lose the luster. I'm choosing stagnation over growth.
Might as well not dwell on it for now. I'll try to talk about a few things.
Re: The Democratic Fight
You know, we do have those Superdelegates there for a reason ... maybe it's time to try out and see if we actually like the way this system works. You know, like how we wanted to see if the electoral college was relevant ... or something.
Reggie, my betta fish, scared me today. He was swimming on his side and I was convinced he had swim bladder disease, but I think it was just temporary gas. He's swimming straighter now. But yeah, I was worried about him all throughout work today. Maybe he did it to get my attention. :-P I cleaned out his bowl fully for the first time today ... only to discover it has or I gave it a slow leak. Well, I put some invisible tape over the spot. I guess I'll get something else to hold him in if it proves not to work.
It's weird, when Dad bought him for me for Christmas I really resented the gift. As low-maintenance as bettas are, I felt like he was giving me a responsibility I wasn't prepared to take on. Now I've grown rather affectionate to Reggie (and kind of weirded out that the name my brother suggested as a joke ended up being the one that stuck). He seems to hate me less than he used to, too, which is very cool.
Not that many of you needed a reason NOT to see Ben Stein's "Expelled", but take a peek at this
. I never thought I'd feel BAD for Richard Dawkins, who always struck me as a jerk.
I mean, as dubious as Michael Moore's methods are, I'm going to venture that he probably wouldn't kick his own interviewees out of seeing the film
You know, I was all rushing to read Prince Caspian
before the movie came out and then I realized I still have a month. Sheesh. It was interesting, though.
Bigger review later. Maybe.
You know I checked out a WiiFit simulator and ... it doesn't look that awesome. Weird precise movements um ... is that really the best way to judge how hard you're working out? Actually, I wonder what kind of studies they have backing it up because I hope it does have some use and is not just quackery or whatever. Also, I'm kind of bummed that they're using BMI as the standard too because ... [sigh] it seems like I was declared obese long ago and having that label seems to inspire more of a "I don't give a fuck" mentality than actually working out.
Speaking of which, I think I'll have a glass of water and play DDR. I have not-exercising guilt ...
