So Far So Good

Three weeks into my new job and I still love it.

Ok. I've been told I'm still in that 'honeymoon' phase; but if it continues the same way, I can see many many happy days.

So far, I've been given a MacbookPro, been to two training session, and all is well.

Of course, I'm still missing my 'colorful' band of misfits, especially their colorful language; though the tall, vegan I work with now is quite colorful in his own right... like all he eats is horny goat weed. Hah!

As an aside, I'm falling in love again with NPR's On the Media. Everyone who watches the news or reads a newspaper needs to listen to this program; especially during all the election news coverage - it's not only important to be informed about the news, but also know which news informs.

Like that last sentence? That's an antimetabole! And I learned it listening to On the Media! Whee!

So I Wore White After Labor Day

That totally doesn't explain why Britney won best video of the year for "Pieces of Me". Seriously, what kind of standard are they measuring music videos now? It looks like it was shot in a two day period in the back of some lot without a real choreographer (probably because they made fun of Britney's weave; or something). The song's ok.

But what was hilarious was watching Russell Brand make fun of the Jonas Brothers' virginity, and then have THAT be a "top story" on CNN Headline newsthe next day! Complete with teen sex experts! What kind of standard are they measuring "top" news stories now?!

And don't get me started on Sarah Palin.

With all the craziness in the world, I think I get a free pass for wearing white jeans and shoes on September 2nd, right?
