Happy Friday, everyone! I’m full of chocolate right now so I’m kinda energetic but I’ll try and calm myself down for a few minutes so that I can record some recent observations of mine:

1. You know those light switches outside the the bathroom for which they are designed? They have “prank the person inside” written all over them. I mean, come on.

2. I’ve started to watch Heroes based on a recommendation from a fairly new friend of mine. As I realize that it is meant to be fictional, I won’t be too critical of the concept or the plots. Has anyone else realized how convenient everything is in that show? It’s like House or CSI all over again. Nevertheless, I’m sufficiently far into the series that I need to find out what happens next. There goes another hour of my week…

3. Somewhat related to the above. I think being able to manipulate time would be so ridiculously awesome.

4. A few weeks ago, I was walking on the upper east side of the island before a show (Wicked, I think) and I caught a reflection of myself in a window. I was wearing a dress shirt under a red sweater, nice jeans, and dress shoes. (I am reminded of this as I am wearing something similar today.) In my left hand was a Starbuck’s chai tea latte. Almost immediately, a word jumped into my head: yuppie. I still don’t know how I feel about that.

5. After having my midterm review (which went quite well), I’m starting to think about whether I would come back to New York on a more permanent basis. I think there is a distinct possibility for the opportunity to do so. This thought scares me. As cool as this city is, I really don’t know how I’d manage away from the folks back in Canada for a long period of time.

6. I cannot stand the politics of America. The two-party system is such a disaster, and it’s surprising how it has lasted this long. Perhaps it speaks to the ignorance and/or arrogance and/or stubbornness of the people here, but it seems that it is always a matter of choosing the lesser of two evils come election time. On TV, politicians are more than eager to point out the evil in the other candidate; so many commercials go on and on about how so and so is going to ruin the entire country and your own, personal life if (s)he gets elected, then save the last four seconds to say that the message was approved by some guy. This fearmongering is not anything new (indeed, TV networks thrive on it here), but I fail to see how it helps the country. Just because people have something from which to run doesn’t really help them unless they have something to which they can run. An n-party system would do wonders here. Having choice is usually not a bad thing, and these people need a choice.

    Your site link wasn’t working for me for a while – that’s why i thought you weren’t blogging. I thought your site wasn’t working.

    Point #3 in your post reminded me of this tv show I used to watch when I was really young (did I already tell you this? I think maybe I did). There was a girl who was half alien and when she touched her two pointer fingers together time stopped but she could still move. Whoever she touched would come unfrozen and they could move around too. When she wanted to start time up again she placed her palms together. I loved that show and have always wished that I could have that superpower. If I could have any power that would be it (a close runner up would be shapeshifting).
