the only earth?

so far.

i went to the office today and figured out how to connect my iBook to the network. it was really not complicated at all, which was the fun part since susan uses special software and described an in-depth process that she uses to connect her power book. simple pleasures.

after work, i wandered around capitol hill since i need want to find a new place to live. since driving1 to school or work would be unpleasant, i should stay near UW. i really hate looking; so if anyone wants to find me a new apartment or set of cool housemates, that would be brilliant.

in an effort to continue the string of evenings at bars, tonight's tentative plan is to go to the sunset tavern for rockaraoke.
the only earth?

or not.

so much for plans.

nearly everyone backed out. not that i'm crying over missed karaoke ...

had i known that people weren't up for anything i might've gone to hear alice sebold read.
the only earth?

extremists vs. moderates

tonight Jon Stewart conducted a beautiful interview with Ann Coulter on the Daily Show. He allowed her look nearly as ridiculous1 as she actually is without being argumentative or insulting.

(1) the most popular quote from the first chapter of Slander, her new book:
"Rarely had the great divide in the country been so manifest. Liberals hate America, they hate "flag-wavers," they hate abortion opponents, they hate all religions except Islam (post 9/11). Even Islamic terrorists don't hate America like liberals do. They don't have the energy. If they had that much energy, they'd have indoor plumbing by now."
