I know, llevo mil sin actualizar. Ya hasta me da bueva pero no me lo quiero saltar. El trip a Dallas con las correspondientes aventuras pseudo kafkianas que pasamos antes de presenciar a Radiohead EN CONCIERTO! el regreso a clases para las últimas dos materias por muuucho tiempo (pinche MBA me he tardado casi el doble que con la carrera), bodrios de movies como 27 vestidos o como se llame, quiero robarme a la novia o lo que sea, (esa ya la reseñé, no?) y dizque indies aburridas como la de Lars que me la chuté por mi novio Ryan Gosling, la pérdida de la inocencia y la llegada de la madurez, querido diario....

Bueno, mañana es domingo y es el día de las resoluciones a las nueve de la noche cuando me doy cuenta que no he leído nada de provecho y no lavé ni tengo las cosas listas para la semana, así que mejor tomemos vodka y clight (mmm, vodka con clight ya se me antojó...) Espero poder actualizar algo mañana. Entonces es cita, ya quedamos. jaja

Perdón por este post tan mal escrito, pero mínimo establecí que sigo aquí y que por alguna razón sigo creyendo en los finales felices.

Does it matter?

Edwards is endorsing Obama, we found out yest at around this time precisely. Does it matter anymore? I was quite psyched at first, but really isn't he just lemming? The tipping point was about a week and a half ago I think. Although Hill doesn't seem to be winding down yet.

The confluence of food, energy and climate is going to be the economic issue of our lifetimes.

Hey Jude

Sick of Facebook applications, I added the "Which Beatles song best describes your life right now?" because, hey, everyone loves the Beatles, and this one didn't sound too annoying. It turns out I'm Hey Jude, ha. And this is the description. I almost kinda liked it.
You are a little hesitant and insecure when it comes to taking action, but the truth is you are extremely capable and full of life and hope, and are a natural leader. You are an idealist and you often wish that there was something you could do to make society a little better. Although you can be overdramatic when faced with obstacles, you have a strong support group of people who love you who will be there to set you back on your feet. Sometimes you have difficulty opening your heart and expressing your feelings because you are worried that people won't accept you, so you act nonchalant and cool. However, you are slowly learning to let people into your heart and let go of your fears.

I'm sitting in a fake Chili's (a faux fake then?) with WAY to many dumb posters, listening to Jim Carroll's People Who Died. At first I thought it was Tobias Wolff, but then I remembered that was another Leonardo DiCaprio movie role. No, I'm not DiCaprio obsessed, I just associated it. Am I not supposed to be an E/INTJ (E or I depending on my mood, I swear), with the N being concept based thinking (intuitive) as opposed to associative (sensory) thinking? Yes, I am Myers-Briggs type obssesed. It's what I'm working on wight now.

My beer should be colder, it's as hot as hell today. Is there gluten free beer? Is there a market for it? My friends are here.
I don't know if I read this, or saw this in a movie or what. It was a YA romance kind of thing, and the girl says,

"Did you ever play with magnets when you were a kid? Pushing the ends together, and they just kept pulling apart. And then you just flipped them over and click; all along, all you needed to do was flip them over".
or something to that effect. You know, she's coming on the guy about how opposites attract or soemthing. It was said in the sporit of "You know how to whistle, don't you Steve? Just put your lips together and blow".

Oh, how I wish Google really could search everything! The knowledge database, or at least the database of my brain! unlock my stubborn head. I know it's there, since I had to have come accross this fairly recently.

Guess the quote

el consumismo ético es el nuevo catolicismo: un sistema que crea nuevos pecados y nuevas culpas.

Procrastinación del miércoles....

pecados capitales de hoy:

- umm, sí, soy mercantilista y quiero un iphone.

- tengo como cuatro herramientas y un test ya planeados pero no he avanzado nada. Llevo más de una semana que me rehuso a hacer algo más que planera lo que voy a hacer y no hacerlo.

- y fui a ver el chick flick más pendejo del año porque quería ver a mcdreamy y no me importó. Pero soy una cascarrabias y no me gustó el final. Copia barata de My Best Friend's Wedding. Además, ayer planté a Rous y a Rocco que fueron a ver Ironman. Mínimo avisé.

- desde que alguien comparó a JM con el principito, cada vez que pasa por mi lugar le quiero decir "dibújame un cordero!". Es una lástima porque esa frase es super característica de Rusty, y aparte como que nada que ver con JM pero es que en verdad sí se parece, jajaja. Una disculpa a Saint Exupéry.

-he abusado de tangerine no puedo / quiero dejar de escuchar volver a comenzar de cafeta. Las guitarras después del puente de meme son la expresión musical de la felicidad. Quiero aprender a tocar la guitarra.

Bueno, ya divagué suficiente por hoy.

Jesus, Hil, way to polarize the issues!

I find the Senator extremely annoying with her simplistic sales tactics. Is she really willing to ruin her party, her country, just to win?

The gas tax thing is just another one of her little ploys to make people believe she stands for "normal Americans", for the little people.

“I believe it is important to get every member of Congress on the record. Do they stand with hard pressed Americans who are trying to pay their gas bills at the gas station or do they once again stand with the big oil companies? That’s a vote I’m going to try to get, because I want to know where they stand and I want them to tell us - are they with us or against us?”

It wouldn't save the individual consumer much. Yet she pretends tobe taking on big oil by proposing to cover the cost of this tax holiday through a “windfall profits” tax on oil companies.

Demonizing oil companies won't help. Bush and his cronies are far more responsible for the current price of oil than they are, with their cronyism and their war. I know it sounds like I'm excusing the snakes 'cause they can't help being snakes, but think about it.

And yes, there are plenty of other factors like China and other emerging economies, OPEC and a diminishing supply, but taxing companies 'cause they're "too profitable" is a crock and it goes against the so called American way.

In any case, reducing this tax would NOT help the States wean itself off fossil fuels, or even foreign oil at least. Yet she wants to play this as David vs. Goliath. Anybody who doesn't agree is cast as an arugula eating elitist or guilty of cronyism.
