No good title for this post
So guess what I got today from my awesome, wonderful work? They gave us all iPods!! Weeeeeee! It was thrilling! We just hit a milestone, and instead of a t-shirt or a hat they gave us technology. Hippity Hoppity glee!

On the down side, I was very depressed watching the news last night. I can't imagine what it is like to be out of home, a job and to wonder if my friends and family are alive while watching my hometown be destroyed. I feel a little guilty opening my iPod box while I see people standing on top of their houses clutching their dogs for dear life. I think we should all do our part to help - give to the Red Cross, offer our homes up to the homeless for tempory shelter, whatever we can do. It could be us some day. As most of my readers know, I am not much of an optimist when it comes to the planetary changes we are starting to see. Us on the West Coast need to prepare for earthquakes and volcanic chaos, those on the East Coast, more hurricanes, those in the middle, tornados. And for all of us - terrorism. I think it is just a matter of time before we see nuclear activity. I don't like this prognosis, mind you, not a bit - its just that I have a bad feeling. I have had this feeling since 2003. A sense of urgency is the best way to describe it. Pray, people, pray. If you don't pray, START.

Oh, and, speaking of prayer: "The Exorcism of Emily Rose" comes to theatres Sept. 9th. Looks a little unnerving...and its based on a true story!! A must-see, of course.

An iPod? YAY! FOR! YOU!

You know, yesterday I heard a clip of the president's speech and I couldn't figure out if he was talking about the war in Iraq or the crisis in the South. It was creepy the way everything is military with him.
