sweeeeet

I went out to the Galleria mall and it was really busy. I didn't find anything I wanted to buy except the iPod shuffle. I thought it was pretty cool, esp. the weight of it. I would rather run with it than my sony cd player.

What a Dick

I cannot believe that anyone would even entertain this idea. This makes me sick to my stomach.

Democratic Party Chairman Len Lenihan was on the radio Wednesday morning, talking about the dire situation involving the Erie County Budget.

He suggested animals at the Buffalo Zoo may have to be put down.

"For him to say that is outrageous," said Dr. Donna Fernandes, President and CEO of the Buffalo Zoo. "I am not going to euthanize our animals!"

The county budget deficit of $108.4 million dollars is putting the zoo, and other departments, in a tough position, however.

Dr. Fernandes says the zoo stands to lose all of its county funding in the plan now before lawmakers, which amounts to 30% of the zoo's income. For now, the zoo is borrowing money to meet operating expenses.

"By now, we should have received a check for $350,000 from the county," said Dr. Fernandes.

As for his claim that zoo animals may have to be put down, Lenihan declined to comment to Channel 2 news.

Dr. Fernandes said they may have to ship some animals to other accredited zoos. They are making plans to do that with animal species for which they have more than one animal, and for rotating exhibits. Because it can be dangerous to transport animals in the winter, Dr. Fernandes said they would not begin shipping animals for months to come, and hopefully, not until after their busy summer season.

She said it can be difficult to find another zoo that will accept older animals, like some of their lions, but if they need to get rid of older animals, the Buffalo Zoo will search for animal sanctuaries that will accept them.

Good news is I am off from work today! YAY!

WHEEEEEEEEE!

I haven't been on (e:strip) in so long, everythings different. CooL!

I've gotten into humor essayists over the past couple of years. It started out with what I thought was a kinky gay sex book called Naked by David Sedaris. I picked up a few random authors along the way like David Rakoff who wrote Fraud, but they aren't as good as Sedaris. In December I stumbled onto Laurie Notaro who is hilarious. She has three books out; I'm half way through the second one.



I miss school. Work is boring. Really boring. I get paid to sit around. Its not fun, its not cool. I got a membership to the YMCA Southtowns so I can swim on my lunch hour and run after work. I decided to train for a triathlon so my efforts aren't in vain.


I have HIPAA coming out of my ass. I can practically recite the entire legislation from memory standing on my head. I have patients asking me "important, serious questions" about their information daily. There must be something up about it because there is a huge renewed interest in it. Blah. I really want to tell people the truth which is the only thing HIPPA does is create massive games of phone tag.

Airports... blah

Terrorists used planes as mobile missiles three years ago. Ok. Now we have to wait and wade through a ridiculous system which isn't really that much more effective than the old way.

Isn't it all stupid? I mean c'mon we have thousands of people using train systems and no one gets frisked board subway systems, or buses, or renting motor boats or, even scarier, U-Hauls and those big yellow Rider trucks.

What idiot would attempt to use a plane to unleash terror on the US again?

If we are going to clog an already teetering airport transportation system up so the dumb fucks that believe Bush feel the world is safer, than we need to totally fuck everyone over and make sure you can't even sneeze without an FBI agent riding your ass.

blah.

US news media

ugh. I've gotten into the habit of scouring USA Today, Buffalo News, NY Times and the Wallstreet Journal every morning. The Wall Street Journal is by far my favorite. USA Today is the easiest to read. NY Times has pretty good articles. The Buffalo News sucks.

Blah. I wish we had UK papers imported here. I'd like to get into reading those and see what the daily media thinks of the US. I've noticed that the papers used to ride Clinton and Bush appears to get a light smearing.

Now that doesn't seem very fair does it?!

AIM: I've cut the rope

After years of being tethered to AIM I am ready to take the plunge and disconnect myself.

I still have my cell phone and email, but AIM appears to do more harm then good. I have felt like I am dodging people when I am online; I leave my away message up and get anxious when I get IMs and just ignore them.

My away messages serve no purpose other than stupid message to people I should just call on the telephone to begin with.

I took iChat off of the dock, out of the status menu. I deleted my AOL program as well as AIM.

I hope I can stick this out. :oP

Bouncing off the Walls

I've felt like I am bouncing off the walls the past four days. Its very odd.

I hate my job. Its part-time, I think my co-workers are fantastic, but the actual job is numbing. I went in today after having an entire week off and I felt horrible. Its time for something new.

I saw the Cole Porter movie yesterday with my friend Paul. It was entertaining. I think the title was De-Lovely.

I went to see Little Black Book tonight with Britney Murphy and it was terrible. Weak story line and it dragged. V. low budget.

Is AIM on its way out? I used to have a ton of people on my list and I could spend hours chatting online. Now I have about 25 people, four of which are on but always away and I have no motivation to chat with anyone online for any length of time. I have text messaging on my phone which I enjoy, but sitting in front of my computer to chat with people is really boring.

I bet I'm boring and too arrogant to admit it. hum.
