The U is Silent

My Cultural anthropology teacher says nu-cu-lar and not nu-CLE-ar. It drives me nuts. How do you get to be a person going for their PhD with out pronouncing this word correctly? I can't listen to him. I clench my teeth too much.

And Then There Were None

A chapter in the book of George has come to a close. I have taken the piercings out of my back. I just got tired of people I didn't know coming up and touching me. I mean seriously. It was very FCUKING annoying.

It's a Glass full of YUM!!

I REALLY like the new 7Up. I'm not really sure it is all that different or natural, but I still LOVE it.

Tsunami Who?

I had a very strange dream last night about a tsunami that hit Waikiki and made its way to my house. There was also a lesbian chef and a strange reporter for Time magazine who also happened to be a car salesman.

Well, the tsunami part got me thinking. I live at sea level about a mile in from the ocean. MAybe I live 10 ft. above sea level. At most. When the earthquake occured off Tonga, Oahu was placed under a tsunami warning. This is where I got concerned. The warning was only anounced on the news at super early in the morning once. The little tsunami siren we have which could wake up Jesus indicates you turn to the am station and listen for the weather announcements. I didn't know about it until I woke up and the warning had been lifted. It didn't go off. I asked Kristen about it later that day and she told me they don't crank that sucker until the water on the shore is retreating in a threatening manner. Now, we are over due for a hurricane or a tsunami or some major ocean related natural disaster by at least 10 years. Don't you think it would be a good thing to have an earlier warning system, especially somewhere as populated as the state of Hawaii, namely Oahu? I mean, nothing happened this time but it could have and we wouldn't have had time to move up the mountain.

PS~ I never had tsunami nightmares until I moved here.

I forgot to water my plants for four days and I thought they were goners. I watered them yesterday before school and by the time I got home, they were lush and perky again. AMAZING!

That's my news... What's yours?
