A year later and I’m still surprised that this song isn’t a Hunger Games tie-in.
Stymied by state tax form. Shouldn’t have left it this late, but eh! can’t go change that now. I just wish it was written as clearly as the federal return I did. :P I could be done by now and sleeping.
Good times and bad hangin out after work with the sibling today. :P The good? Finishing the second episode of In The Flesh and being totally in sync vis-a-vis what parts were cool and whether the main dude had been secretly dating his BFF. (Answer unclear! Signs point to YES)
The bad? Trying to open up afterwards about problems in my life and having Sibs make parallels between our differing current life-difficulties which, while apt enough, caused Siibs to reframe everything in the wrong emotional tenor. (Liiiiike, I’m frustrated that my friend didn’t even finish the job interview I set up for her at my company, but I’m not angry with her, right? And so I wanted to talk about how difficult it is to self-start when you and almost everyone you know have a broken get-up-and-go… not complain about how my friends are jerks for not getting as enthusiastic about the group activities I come up with.)
During World War One, 10% of all casualties were civilians.
During World War Two, the number of civilian deaths rose to 50%.
During the Vietnam War, 70% of all casualties were civilians.
In the war in Iraq, civilians account for up to 90% of all deaths.
AUGH this is like, years too late, but I absolutely loathe whoever is responsible for converting all tv channels to digital. My house never got especially good reception, but the conversion took us from like 10-12 channels (with half of them being staticky 75-100% of the time) to 3 channels. Just 3. And of those 3, one is 100% paid programming 100% of the time… and all of them cut out occasionally.
I really really loathe the conversion to digital. Especially since my really good friend from high school, who I haven’t spoken to in ages, has his freaking movie Spirit of ‘68 on public programming tonight and I can’t fucking watch itttttttt.
UGH. Fuck this for real.
