procrastination post number twelve thousand

  • Some things I don't get:

    • Twitter. I watched the video and everything. Nope, still don't get it.

    • Elective Caesareans, a.k.a. Please Perform Major Abdominal Surgery On Me For No Medical Reason Whatsoever. With this mentality I should be able to get an appendectomy just because it's Sunday and I feel like one. No wonder the US Caesarean rate is 31.1% with a bullet. Quote from here:

      "I liked the idea of knowing what day and time my baby would arrive so I could schedule my parents to be here, a baby nurse, and furniture delivery[.]"

      Um, sure.Go right ahead and put yourself and your baby at risk for convenient furniture delivery. Also, baby nurse? People still have baby nurses? Wow.

    • American Idol and the whole frenzied fanatacism surrounding it. And not just because I loathe just about everything the show stands for.

      There have been plenty of talent programs in TV history that haven't used contestant humiliation as a gimmick (Community Auditions and Star Search, for example). Why has this one, and why is it so freakishly popular despite (or maybe because of) it?

    • How this isn't torture. wtf?

    • Hillary Clinton. She's a smart woman, so why can't she see that she's undermining the Democrats' chances in November by staying in the race? I get that it's a great way for the whole country to have a say in the primary election, but it sucks for the Dems. Yes, I'm supporting Obama, but I'd say the same thing if the situation was reversed.

      Also, I still don't know how I feel about Michigan and Florida. Yes, everyone's vote should be counted. But IIRC Obama didn't participate because he thought that the votes wouldn't be counted, so the outcome wouldn't be fair. One thing I'm positive of: I would definitely not want to be Howard Dean right about now.

      And. Sen. Clinton changing her mind about the whole thing now that she's not the frontrunner? Not On, Hillary, Not On. Besides, in the end it's not one person, one vote anyway. It's all down to the superdelegates and the Electoral College.

    • The Electoral College. See above. I'm sorry, Founding Fathers, but you missed the boat on this one.

  • Some things I do get:

  • A thing I want to get:

    • This. When I have $301.99 plus tax, that is. And to think that until today I had no idea such a wonderful thing existed. I emailed them anyway.Just for future reference, understand.

Obviously I'm procrastinating. Must get out of avoidance mode and go be a Responsible Adult (not easy to do and I'm not looking forward to it). Bleh.
