I love movies, mystery novels, and good coffee.
I am the eldest of seven siblings (hence, bossy and opinionated).
I am a European-American.
I currently manage a movie theater.
I am working on my MSM.
I am old enough to know better, but still young enough not to care.
I think Liberals are stupid.

I have to thank Frank for his link to Glenn Reynolds, and Glenn for his link to this story. While I have always suspected a "slight" bias in the post-combat media reports from Baghdad, this story by an embedded reporter confirms that it is a little more than slight.
Don't you hate it when you wake up in the morning and all the clocks are flashing at you? That means that not only do you have to re-set the VCR, but that at some point during the night the power went out and you slept right through it! I HATE it when I miss all the excitement!

I spent all my time before work reading other blogs...I love Frank J! He makes me laugh. I am also outraged by the attempt to shut down the boycott-hollywood blog, and overjoyed at the widespread support the blog is receiving as a result.
Gotta run...time to go work for 4 hours (and sit around for 5 --if only I had a laptop!!!!).

Omg...I don't like one of my teachers! The fact he is
a) a University Professor and
b) in Hawaii
almost certainly means he is a (shudder) Liberal, but that's not why I dislike him. He seems to be humorless and dogmatic and incapable of following a logical train of thought.
Yep, he's a (shudder) Liberal.
Ok, I am starting to figure how to do cool blog stuff, like add links, and I decided to add an email address just in case someone other than me reads this and might have a comment (since I haven't gotten to the lesson on adding comments yet). But I warn you, if I get a lot of Spam I will be making sandwiches......with tons of mayo. On toast.

Another beautiful, albeit overcast, Spring day. April showers bring May flowers.....goodness, I'm babbling. If I didn't have to go to work, the day would be near perfect.
It's not that I dislike my job---the pay is low, but the hours are long---it's just that all there is to do there is work! Ok, so I get to see a few minutes of different movies here and there from up in the booth; big whoop--there's not even any sound. I must have seen Maid in Manhattan 15 times (in random, 5 to 10 minutes segments)....I just never heard it. The real problem is there is no internet access. Even worse, there are no computers! See, what makes the low pay essentially tolerable is the fact that, between movies, there isn't really anything to do. Unfortunately, that's the same thing that makes the long hours intolerable. Pretty much I am getting paid for working fours hours out of every day, and that would figure out as pretty good money. But I have to stay there for 9 hours, which kindda defeats the good money argument, since I have all this time on my hands and can't be doing anything constructive with it, at least not anything high-techish. I read a lot. Sometimes I do my homework. But since my classes are via the internet, I can't do much more than the reading assignments, and one of my teachers scolded me for reading too far ahead! So I can't win. Hmmm....maybe if I got one of those paypal things, I could use donations to buy myself a laptop which I could take to work!

Well, through the amazing versatility of the internet, I was able to discover a list of the countries in Cuba's grouping. I think the racial profiling thing is probably true, except that Spain and Portugal are in the Westen Europe grouping. Turkey is in the Western Europe grouping, too. I would have put them in either the Eastern Europe or Asian grouping. But then, I'm pretty good at geography. :P
Cuba was reelected to the U.N.'s Human Rights Commission today. Hurray!! We will now all be safe from.....oh, wait.
Kinda makes you really wonder about the U.N., especially since Cuba ran unopposed in its "regional grouping".
'How can that be?' you ask. 'It's in the region of North America, isn't it?'
Au contrair .....the U.S. and Canada are in the "Western Europe and Others" grouping (along with Austrailia and New Zealand).
Huh????? Either the UN is REALLY bad at geography, or we got some racial profilin' goin' on here, Lucy. Of course, I don't know what other countries are in Cuba's "regional grouping," but it sure makes me curious.
Hmm, I seem to remember that Iraq was on the Human Rights Commission, too. Maybe that says it all about the U.N.

Classes start today. oh joy. Why did I sign up for two? I must be nuts! especially since this inertia thing is lingering...Maybe I ought to start eating energy bars or something, for when the coffee wears off.....
I think I shall have to write a paean to ellipses.....
Oh versatile ellipsis!
I sing thy praises.....
The unappreciated punctuation mark,
I salute thee;
The caesura personified:
( I warned you the first day about the poetry....)
THIS is a must read.

Oh my goodness, it is a beautiful Spring day today! The sun is shining, the temperature is moderate, there is a delicate suggestion of a breeze...if every day were like this, I would never go to work. That's because the theater would close for lack of business. Honestly, who is going to plunk down $$$$ to be inside on a day like today? It's going to be hard enough to keep the employees inside, and we are being paid to be there.
I can't think...the weather is just too nice!
