the only earth?

...

Today I am "working from home" which means that I did a little work and organized some stacks of paper while CNN played in the background. In the news today: fires, bus accidents, our president telling the palestinians to get rid of their leader, and maybe a new video from Osama bin Laden.

The "new video" language seems funny. I can almost imagine throngs of teens waiting in ecstatic anticipation for the latest hit from al quaeda. yes. watching the news makes you (and by you, I mean me) stupid. Really, the whole concept of a criminal mastermind evil-doer hiding out in caves and releasing occasional videos is so bizarre.
the only earth?

nonsense

instead of eating dinner, i went for a jog. eight o' clock is a pretty good time to be outside exerting energy since it's still nice, but not hot. in the heat, i just don't get the point of trying to move quickly.

and it's still light out. i feel like i'm in alaska, though I've never been there. Though I did see Insomnia. I guess it's not quite that much -- I haven't resorted to pushing all of the furniture in front of my window to block out the light ...

now i think i'll go to dante's for a little bit. bye bye.
