I admit I’m behind the curve on this one. This book has been out since 2006, but it’s better late than never, right? It’s just so inspiring to see children so eager to learn. And it’s so refreshing to see an informed, compassionate perspective on the Muslim world. I couldn’t agree more that the real way to effectively combat terrorism is through education. Why is that such a hard thing for our government to comprehend?
*[Side note: Palin just announced her replacement for former State Senator Kim Elton. Elton left Alaska to be part of Obama’s Dept. of the Interior, and the only name that Democrats submitted to Palin as a replacement was Rep. Beth Kerttula. Kerttula is awesome, but she publicly stated that she didn’t think Palin was qualified to be VP during her presidential bid last fall. Big surprise, Palin decided to reject Kerttula and has instead named Tim Grussendorf to fill the empty senate seat. Plus, she used up almost all of the 30 days she had to name a replacement, leaving Juneau without representation right in the middle of our legislative session. Vindictive much? Now there is the potential for the senate to reject this selection and the process would start all over again. This comes after Palin has created a big stink even with state Republicans by not accepting Obama’s stimulus money. The circus show continues…]
Okay, so that’s my political rant for the month…

I am 30-friggin’ years old and I am getting the biggest zit ever. Wasn’t that supposed to stop like, over a decade ago? I hate acne and now I have a planet growing on my chin. And I can’t stop touching it, which I am sure is really helping. It’s gross.
Know what is as bad as adult acne? Office politics. I absolutely loath when a coworker comes into my office and asks me for money for a band fundraiser or baby shower/going away/marriage present for someone in the office. I don’t like everyone in my office. And also, I don’t really have a lot of money. Nine months into living in Juneau and I still haven’t paid off all my moving expenses. I spent over a thousand dollars on gas to get up here. All those stupid gifts start to add up but I don’t want to be the one ornery bitch that refuses to chip in.
