Oops

haha it just occured to me that i never posted anything about the 10k entry party. it was a lot of fun. it was nice to meet everyone. (e:ladycroft) maybe this fall we can go geocaching.

I made a friend at the gym this week. She's in her 60's, retired school teacher and can bench press 185lbs. Its quite fun to lift with her. sadly i think our relationship is short lived. she goes to the gym in the afternoon, I prefer to go in the am. :(

I'm glad this week is over. Work royally sucked, mostly because of a series of misunderstandings and the fact that the scheduling dept at buffalo general hospital is an evil department. Who puts their garbage can underneath the broken tray of the fax machine?! {im not kidding; for the longest time faxes were just falling into the garbage can and no one was pulling them out of the trash}

priorities

Did anyone else happen to catch the small blurb in the newspapers about how the Discovery crew saw huge stretches of land that we have destroyed? Complete forestes just disappeared since the last time the shuttle was up in space?

It was in the paper monday or tuesday I think, it was shortly after the shuttle got into space.



Funny how that isn't on the news at all and a story about our continuted hunt for osama bin laden is. I wonder how regulated the government keeps our news feeds.

a-bomb

When I was 11 my dad took me to Japan with him. We spent three days in Hiroshima while he gave a talk at a conference. Our hotel was across the bridge from the peace park, the location where the bomb landed. Inside it was solemn and dead quiet. There weren't any people talking, there were no birds chirping. It was completely silent.

When you walked around the muesem, they had display after display after display of how horrid the atomic bomb was. There was a set of concrete stairs with just an outline of where the person was sitting. Their body had been evaporated by the blast. There were pictures of people trying to walk down the streets with their skin just falling off the them.

Further into the park, there were thousands of paper crane's in the grass. I guess the school kids made them every year to remember the people that had died.

The United States use of the Atomic bomb was a mistake. Future use of nuclear warheads will do nothing except probably seal our fate. It would take what, five ICBM's to completly knock out most of the country, if not make it entirely uninhabitable?

ugh.

Poof!

I took the day off from work today. Wow! I so much stuff done it was incredible. No lines anywhere, just mostly middle aged women and kids all over the place.

After two hours of one-on-one training I am pretty sure my dog will now go to the end of the driveway and pick up the papers in the morning and bring them back to the door, provided the treat is already in my hand. I know he had it after the first try, the rest were just for the food. haha
