24 hour bug and early Xmas gift

I was completely, totally sick yesterday. I woke up nauseated, light-headed, with achy joints and a headache as well as my legs feeling like I just completed a marathon. Ugh, I couldn't even have a bowl of soup. I tried one spoonful of chicken soup and wanted to throw up. By late yesterday most of it was gone but I still had the headache and achy joints this morning. Right now I'm feeling back to (ab)normal.

My mother bought me my Xmas gift yesterday: a 120GB hard drive! Woohoo! No, I'm not going to open it until Xmas day. I can wait a week. :o)

I love these

Most Loathsome People in America, 2002 My favorite being:


Misdeeds: Without question one of the most smarmy, vile, hypocritical talking heads on television. Has the uncanny ability to vilify and generalize those who disagree with him, and then state that he's not a partisan person. Exploits his devout Catholicism and patriotism to the point that it makes you think he's selling something—like his book, whose cover features his giant head in front of one of the glossiest, waviest American flags ever. Much of his wrath can probably be traced to his displeasure that Reagan still can't remember his name although he's met him many times.

Aggravating Factor: Since 9/11, pretends to be genuinely convinced that anyone who disagrees with the Bush administration does not want America to be safe.

Aesthetic: Repressed kid from Long Island who got to college, was scared of sex, discovered other repressed white kids in conservative student group, joined them, devoted rest of life to blasting people who didn't."
