and mine is wasting. I am so incredibly bored I'm HERE, inflicting it on cyberspace! My grandmother always said that only boring people are ever bored. Well, I hereby confess to being a boring person then, because I'm going starkers sitting here in this little office with nothing to do, and no one to talk to but myself. Now don't get me wrong. I like myself, in general anyway. But one does like a little variety in one's company after all, and I'm afraid even my many personalities are sick of each other. What do you guys do when you're bored? If, that is, any of you are willing to cop to being a boring person.
I'm not sure about anyone else, but my mind does odd things to keep itself entertained. For instance, does a question mark just seem like an old and tired exclamation point to anyone else? Is it a metaphor for life? All the strongly held and loudly proclaimed opinions of youth are weathered and beaten into the questions of maturity. And speaking of maturity, the pitiable amount I have is starting to bleed away. I'm so bored I've resorted to taking pictures of myself!!!!
It looks like some sort of seizure!
She's gonna blow!
Eye see you! Ha haaa!
SNAP OUT OF IT!!!!!!!
Okay. I feel better now.

I just read a news article. Yeah. Guess what? The "victims" of Katrina are SUING the federal government. Big shocker, there, right? No. The big shocker is for how much. Guess. Just guess! Take a deep breath, 'cause I'm gonna tell you:
That 3 QUADRILLION, ladies and gents. Dollars.
One word: LEECHES.
Let me quote the article here briefly:
"For the sake of perspective: A mere $1 quadrillion would dwarf the U.S. gross domestic product, which (an economist) said was $13.2 trillion in 2007. A stack of one quadrillion pennies would reach Saturn."
Seriously! What is WRONG with these people?! Some lawyer actually was able to say, with a straight face mind you, 'measuring Katrina's devastation in dollars and cents is a nearly impossible task."There's no way on earth you can figure it out," he said. "The trauma these people have undergone is unlike anything that has occurred in the history of our country."'
Oh, really?! They lost their homes in a completely foreseeable event that their utterly corrupt and contemptibly inept local government did NOTHING to prepare for, despite manifold opportunities AND resources! This is the greatest US tragedy of all time?! REALLY?!?!?!
I am very angry about this. My sympathy for ANY of these people who are involved in this legalized rape is non-existent. I'm honestly beginning to think we should just let that city sink back into the swamp from which it started. I'm DONE with New Orleans. They have gotten enough money to bring a third world country up into the second world! What are they doing with it?! Some people need to start being held accountable. It's an endless sinkhole of money and misery and WHINING, and I just want it to go away.
