Things I can't believe
This is news?
Come on. Is this really a big enough deal to get up in arms over? Does Bush really care if women wear flip-flops to the White House? They are all dressed appropriately. There is very little difference between sandals and flip-flops.
Why does this constitute news? I have a hard time believing that wearing flip-flops to meet Paul Martin at Parliament would create an uproar. Any average person meeting Paul Martin in itself isn't even newsworthy, let alone what footwear they're wearing while they are at said meeting.
You shouldn't mess with The Joshua Tree
I was watching videos this morning over breakfast, as usual. On came Pras Michel, of Fugees and one-hit wonder "Ghetto Supastar" fame. Turns out he has a new cd. The single is called "Haven't Found". The chorus of his song uses U2's I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For. It was not sampling, but women singing the chorus. Reminiscent of Puff Daddy/P. Diddy.
WHY?!? Bono said this was ok? Can't people write original songs anymore? Step away from The Joshua Tree, please.
More time sucked from my life that I can't get back
I had a call at work this morning from someone who needed to vent, and they unfortunately chose me. 25 minutes he vented on me, saying the same things over & over again. Look buddy, I told you what I can/can't do. That's the end of the story. Thanks for wasting my time.
