News Roundup of ANGST!

- I continue to wish, above all things, that I could teleport. That would teh coolest, evar.

- Moving-in of the lovely faithlynn has not gone as smoothly as anticipated. Miah didn't get his shit out of here until around 9 pm today. If I'm not much mistaken, I think some of it is still here. In fact, he has just returned to grab it. It is 9:30 on Thursday. Faith got here on Monday. Her stuff has been sitting in the living room... since Monday. This is her apartment.

- "It's so weird being here when it's clean. I'm used my being stuff thrown everywhere." - Miah ... So. Much. Hate. *sizzle*

- Craigslist has become my new best friend. Faith and I just got an massive Center de Entertainment - complete with a 27 inch TV (which we are totally selling to muhnipul8a, Dan, Preston? and Damon) - for 90 bucks. We are also getting a SNES with some awesome games, and also some lame ones that we should be able to sell and recover the cost of buying the thing in the first place. I am also trying to get a turntable, because I am obsessed with vinyl. (Not that kind, you pervs.)

- I love Faith. Really, I do. Great big hearts.

- I most emphatically do not love, however, the bogarting of my roommate by the Nic. I'm actually just more annoyed by the apparent clingy-ness. I can't stand that in anyone, even if I'm not being clung onto. Not that I don't love Nic, but I, personally, need my space. I also need variety in my social interaction. I don't want to always be doing the same old thing with the same old crew. I don't want to dissolve into the "let's drink and watch a movie" rut right away. Plus, lately he's been so unbelievably whiney. Yes, I realize that things are pretty shitty for him right now, but he's not exactly doing anything to solve the problems at hand so my sympathy is limited.

- Faith came and picked me up from work and we did lunch today. It was beyond lovely. We sat outside at Noodles & Company and were blasted by the gale-force winds. We also listened to, and participated in, a discussion on the prices of gas. I honestly never thought I'd see the day when it went above three, but I suppose that with the extremely-well-publicized ecological disaster that has swept over the S'th - it's understandable. With that, a warning.

- If I continue to hear people piss and moan about the price of gas as if it is entirely the government's fault, I am gonna have to choke a bitch. Yeah, it sucks. No, neither Islamic Terrorists nor the Bush Administration created yon Hurricane of Woe and Doom. Yeah, we definitely should have been building more oil refineries over the past 20 years. But regardless of all this hindsight-nonsense, natural disasters of this magnitude do have catastrophic economic backlashes. See tsunami for details. It's not just the oil refineries, it's the oil fields and the ports and the people for fuck's sake. So yes, in short, it sucks but shut up. Everything is about to change, and there's nothing you can do about it. At least take it with some intelligence, grace, and dignity instead of whining about how much it costs to fill the tank of your Escalade. Gas prices are ridiculously high, so transportation cost is going to go up, so the cost of goods is going to go up... You've been warned. Shut up and deal with it. It's not the end of the world. Maybe this is the shock that our gasoline-dependent country has needed. Maybe this will finally illustrate to the masses how out of focus we are as a nation; that we care more about taking rights away from people in love then finding alternate energy sources that would save the environment and protect us from catastrophes like this. Still, this isn't the first time there's been a gas shortage. We survived, and we will again. One can only hope we'll be a little wiser. I, however, am not getting my hopes up.

- This whole Hurristeria thing is depressing me beyond belief. It's so tragic, but at the same time it's nature. It's incredible just in statistic form and beyond humbling, but I feel so heartbroken at the devastation. I can't turn the news on anymore or check the Weather Channel for the local forcast. It's getting to the point where I'm almost afraid to read my friends-list, because there are so many linked articles and things that I feel so compelled to read. Ugh.

- Alex is leaving, and that sucks. 'Nuff said.

- Last full day of work tomorrow, thank sweet, merciful Christ.

- I have spent too much money lately. After we get a TV, I am cutting myself off for awhile.

- I wonder if Alice is coming tomorrow? I don't even know.

- Again... teleporting would be the coolest. God damn, if only.
