Sorry, but I haven't yet shared the information about myself that would typically display here. Check back later to see if that changes, or if I instead choose to remain an enigma.
Santa Wolf has decided to give everyone Christmas presents this year because the spirit of the holiday has filled her soul wtih love and joy.
However, because she is part wolf, you'll have to forgive her if she gives someone an inappropriate gift. I assure you she was well intentioned.
You get ME! =D Haha. Just kidding. You deal with me enough as is. Check your HGmail for a surprise, though. =P
A few things come to mind for you. You could receive a bottle of your favorite beer, a Philosoraptor T-Shirt and/or something that relates to accounting that I'm not clever enough to think of right now. The choice is yours. =P
I haven't done one of these in a while, so here goes. Hope you all appreciate it.
Formentor was probably the most touristy place I ever visited on the island. I think, from what I saw, there were more Brits and Germans there than there were Spanish. Seriously. I think the only Spaniards there were the ones doing the vending.
Considering just how touristy the place is, I had to wonder whether this was where EmP wound up on his vacation. Though, I didn't see anything about a crazy golf course, so probably not. haha.
So far, this semester is looking like it'll be a bit of a "break" from what I've been doing. Which is good, because if I ever have to do anything as strenuous and exhausting as last year, I'll shoot myself, I swear. I do have some concerns, as I always do, but they'll probably work themselves out... as they always do.
I'm actually less concerned with getting straight As this semester (*shockgaspawesurprise*), and am more concerned with just getting the work done. I also want to try and start job-searching, though, the problem with that has to do with my schedule, as you'll see in a moment.
Ok, if any of you saw the message where I awkwardly tried explaining the Rollercoaster Tycoon situation, I spoke with my brother and what I had thought was an issue wasn't really the issue I was thinking. Rather, he had installed the expansion and it had wiped all our progress in the process. That's a glitch I had read about some time ago, so I can find a way how to fix it.
America loses to Ghana because, as usual, we fuck up during the first half and have to concede a goal. It's LAW or something. We might have been fine if we hadn't given up that second goal during extra time, but really, that wouldn't have been an issue if we'd just played right from the beginning.
Again, we're the laughing stock of the world (of soccer). Let's all celebrate our perpetual averageness.
Still, I guess it's an achievement we made it out of group play at all, though I still think the majority of that was sheer luck also.
For the first time since God knows when,* the U.S. advance out of group play in the World Cup. To top that, we even beat out England to top the group because we scored more goals throughout the tournament than they did. All that getting dicked over by shitty calls from the refs doesn't even matter now that we qualify for the last stage of the tournament.
That being said, I don't have much hope that we'll progress much further. It's a heart-bleeding miracle we even got this far. Even with lousy ref calls, those wouldn't have mattered to begin with if we weren't sloppy during the first half of our first two games. I'm just glad we managed to pull it together this time around, though it really was looking hopeless for a while there.
This oil spill is only the latest in a series of disasters from that oil company. The first, that I know of, occurred in 2005 (or was it 2007?) when that Texas oil refinery blew up killing about fifteen or more people. Then a few years ago I heard about them dumping waste material into Lake Michigan. And now this. I'm sure there are other infractions as well, but those I'm not aware of. What's especially infuriating about this whole thing is that BP has always stated that they "support" the environment, and yet their actions show quite the opposite.
