It’s been a busy few weeks for me. I got sucked into reading Plato’s Republic for my philosophy class and now I’m reading Descartes. Or at least… I’m ditching the reading of Descartes that I am supposed to be doing, in order to bring you this post!
The democrats won many seats in congress on November 7th. That was sad. Most disappointing for me is that Maria Cantwell won again, and no matter how hard I try I can’t seem to vote that woman out of office. Even though she is almost single handedly responsible for the increase that we are about to receive in our power bill that may drive several Washingtonians out of their current lifestyles due to their inability to be able to afford expensive wind-power, which power companies are now required by law to use here in our state. I mean… forget the fact that Washington doesn’t get all that much wind in areas where that power would be most useful… forget the fact that we already have hydro out the wahzoo. No no, we need a more expensive form of “renewable” power sources. Sure it’s renewable, as long as you can figure out how to make the wind blow hard enough to turn the windmills… We can also forget the fact that the RIAA has her in their pocket. Let’s just forget all of it.
In addition to all of the world wide weirdness, such as K. Fed and Britney Spears getting divorced over text meassaging, I’ve also been spending more money on my anime collection. I updated the anime collection page today so you can see what new things I’ve blown money on this month. I’ve also started my xmas shopping and have yet to finish my birthday shopping (even though many of those birthdays have long since passed… ) and really… that’s about it.
