So richard dawkins spoke on campus and we went to see him and it was pretty great except for the idiots who got up to ask questions. it was a pretty nice presentation.

Some highlights were his comparison of creationist/intelligent design folks to holocaust deniers. it seems ludicrous for people to expect that people who deny the holocaust should have equal time in the history curriculum to present their views, just like creationism. Second was that people should become aware of labeling children as the religion of their parents, i.e. catholic children or muslim children. it's as silly as saying secular humanist children or postmodern children or marxist children. he suggested that people become aware in much the same way as feminists have made people aware of the knee jerk use of man, masculine pronouns, etc. i thought that was nice. he also spoke briefly about how wrong it it to teach children about hell.

i also completed my very first video game of my life. we defeated diablo II on all 3 difficulties. i feel like i've accomplished something.

Also, work stress is coming to a head and matt and i had a conversation stating that we didn't need to leave but if we didn't at least apply to grad schools that we'd go crazy. then i got sad about leaving, not that i see or communicate w/anyone to justify staying close to indiana anyway. sigh.

i'm looking at people's pottery blogs and they make me jealous.

sigh.

i have an acquaintance who's back in town after he was arrested and is now facing felony charges related to a facebook status update.

so, if you are ever posting about what you would like to do on a day when you are feeling a bit grumpy at work just use some discretion or you can spend some time in a mental facility, in jail, and charged with a felony. esp. if your friends and acquaintances think that you may be mentally unstable.

it's no longer safe to joke around about hurting other people. dang.

I've been sick for over a week now and i'm ready to have my life back, thank you. my phlegm is an amazing bright yellow-orange. work is driving me crazy right now. i think it's because my medicine makes me just loopy enough to not really be able to get my head around things properly.

District 9 is an amazing movie.

it was so windy last night that i barely got any sleep. my boss called in for the same reasons. it's nice to be in charge and be able to call in because you didn't get enough sleep. i am a very jealous person right now.

how am i feeling?

so i was at work listening to a conversation between jodie and another co-worker about video games...then very sheepishly the co-worker said to jodie: i was watching this movie called role-models and i, uh, do you know anything about that?

jodie pointed at me and i told him about the whole thing. he was astounded and very excited and is interested in playing. hilarious! never would have expected it. the more we talked, the more excited he became. then he admitted that another guy (who had watched the movie with him) was also interested...wow. who would have thought.

So brodie, the entity comprised of one Brent and one Jodie will be undertaking their annual move. this year they are moving out of the old manse, leaving behind the hall of heroes and many fond memories. i for one hope that they have less spiders in the new place which is quaint and cottage-y. unfortunately it is lacking in dishwasher(yikes!)and oddly enough is across the street from my current boss. it's a small world after all and Bloomington is really small.

incident #1: i say to jodie while holding up the funny "U" shaped rug that you put around the toilet "hey, do you want this?" she gives me a look and says "no. ryan and adam have been pissing on it for a year." (duh) i reply with damn it and then we engage in a conversation about gentlemen and their pissing antics. why can't you just pee in the toilet!?

incident #2: "this is a nice trash can, are you keeping it?" i ask. "it is nice, Adam bought it," says jodie. i hold it up to inspect it "it's a little sticky" i find. "eew" says jodie. realization on my part elicits and "eew" as well.

what does tonight hold for our intrepid heroes? lots of A&E's pride and prejudice whilst madly quoting and cleaning. We should be in good shape for the move on Saturday with boxes packed and sun and a high of 80 forcasted. hopefully, it goes well.

needing more sleep. acgh!
