I was going to just do a 9/11 thought post, and then a regular one, but that just seemed even more depressing.
Its amazing how long it has been. How do the years fly by so fast? Monday on Oprah, a guy who checked in some of the terrorists will be on. I can only imagine how he feels. You know he feels responsible, even though there probably was nothing more he could do. I was also reading about how the 9/11 babies are starting to ask about where their daddies are. The tracked all the babies born within hours after, to 9 months later. I think they said there are over 700 they are tracking for "grief" something or another. I bawled my way through the article.
Um, my brain just erased. I don't know what else I was going to say. Hmmmm...
Well damn. Guess I will post again if I think of anything worthwhile (which is doubtful).
I've lived at home for 5 years now. *sigh* I miss Washington.
I actually tried to go to bed last night. I fell asleep around 3:30 but then woke up shortly thereafter. I had a headache going to sleep, and my throat and ears sort of hurt now. I am so achy all over. So, this is what it feels like to be 90. Weather must be changing, my wrist is starting to hurt a lot more than usual. Dad came down about 6:15 this morning to tell me that my brother's fish didn't look so good. I was like, thanks for the info. He made me text my brother. Who knows, was acting normal for me. The fish place says he might have a little eye infection. I told my brother to take care of it.
Work, then more sleep. Thank goodness.
Since I am a bit of a sheep, and others are doing it... this is how I found out about 9/11:
I had started working at the bowling alley on the 10th. I had just moved back here at the beginning of September. I worked and then came home... I think I got to bed about 1? That morning my uncle, who never calls... and since that day hasn't again I don't believe, called my dad at the house. My parents had already left for work, and their phone line was in my room, so I answered it. He asked for my father, and I told him he was at work, and he yells "WE'RE BEING ATTACKED!!!" into the phone. I was SO tired and SO out of it that my reply was "You Are??" Then he was like no, US, like the country, and he told me to turn on the TV. I had to work that night. I remember one of the leagues told everyone they could come in if they wanted, they wouldn't cancel the league. It was good because it took people's minds off things (sort of, we had the news on every free tv). The other league was cancelled by the league secretary because her brother worked in the towers, and she wanted to watch the news/wait for a phone call. Unfortunately he was one of the people who was killed that day.
So yeah, that's my story. I also remember getting on line and seeing if people from FF that I had been talking to were okay. Waiting for anyone from NY to check in.
I have over 8 months until the trip because every time I think I have a schedule of when to go where, it changes. For instance, my friend in Switzerland - Oh! You should go see Pompeii. Um, okay... the closest airport is Naples? We weren't planning on going to Naples... oh well. Hee. *adds*
Plus nothing is really available price wise this far out. Ooh! I fly EasyJet while I am over there... they have EasyCruise now. It's like $24 for 2 people to share a room for a night. Like $24 total. And you get to move to another location. Its so cheap because you have to pay for food if you want to eat on the boat, but damn... where can you find a hotel where you get your own room/shower/etc for that cheap? Nowhere! So, as they release dates, I will look into that. The only requirement is that your trip be between 2-14 days. I can handle that. I'd really love to do a River cruise that takes us to a lot of the places we want to go, but when you put the prices vs hotel/flight/food, it is still too much. Who knows, maybe I will get lucky and find something?
Ugh. Its amazing how lame I am. I am so bored without BB. Tomorrow night it will all be over. Thank goodness. I want to see the jury questions and the winner I guess... I'm just disappointed in the season overall.
I'm 2 episodes away from being done with disk 2 of Dawson's Creek S6. Rah! I like Eddie a lot, which means he won't be around long enough. I really really like Jensen better as Dean. C.J. is an odd character... but he's cute, so all is forgiven. :)
