I have returned to bring you an important message about bacon

Well, I thought since it has been over a year it was time to maybe write a few times on this blog, before most likely taking another hiatus (lets be honest, most people don't break patterns, that takes like work and years of therapy). To catch you up, I still think Brandon is an obnoxious twit and that Dylan is totally misunderstood. I have a job now, so sadly my 90210 watching only takes place on the weekend. Though to be honest, you can only watch these episodes so many times (who am I kidding, so many times means a limitless number of times at least until they get to the point where Kelly's rehab roommate tries to kill her and then things begin to go off the rails a little).

So anyway, oh right, maybe me catching you up wasn't only supposed to involve talking about 90210. I do occasionally do other things and have other thoughts. For instance, during my time of unemployment I took up baking. I mean I have always sort of enjoyed baking from back when my mom and I would make ice cream cone cupcakes for my birthday (I made these for a friend's birthday in the spring and they are still awesome. Only need to find a way to get better tasting flat bottomed cones, but I digress), so when I had a lot of time on my hands and needed something comforting/cheap to do, baking seemed like a great option. Plus people get so happy when you share homemade baked goods with them, seriously it is like a natural high.

So now that it is cold again, and you can turn on the oven without wanting to kill yourself, I have been trying to keep baking and experimenting and tweaking recipes to make them my own and so forth. My brother has been bugging me to make some chocolate chip bacon cookies for awhile, but other things got in the way. But then the other day he had bought bacon for something else, so it was in the fridge and I happened to have basically all the other ingredients around the apartment, and it seemed like a nice way to make Monday better, so I did it, I made bacon chocolate chip cookies! And let me tell you they are awesome.

I searched around the internet to get some ideas about what other people do. A lot of recipes candy the bacon first, which is just putting some brown sugar on top of it when baking. I decided not to do that, but might try that at some point in the future. I also decided to add maple syrup in place of vanilla. I stopped adding vanilla to my cookies awhile back for a few reasons:

1. The ladies who make Levain cookies said they don't use vanilla and that it is useless, so hey, if it works for them it works for me.

2. When I was unemployed I felt vanilla was pricey, and since I had good word it was useless, donzo. I am curious who the vanilla lobby is and how they somehow got everyone to add it to every recipe no matter what you are making. It is like a weird conspiracy.

3. Once I stopped using vanilla I realized it was in fact useless and unnecessary. You have all probably tasted some of my cookies, and told me you enjoyed them. Were anyone of you thinking, I enjoyed these but I miss a weird hint of vanilla that detracts from the actual flavor of the cookie? Good, I am glad we all agree.

I have totally forgotten about what I was talking about and now can only think about the weird vanilla lobby. But I guess I could save that and let it be its own post some time (lets be honest, it probably won't be because that would require me actually posting).

So, the recipe for the chocolate chip bacon cookies, in case you wanted to try them (though I will be making them again, so if you ask nicely you could maybe try mine):

1 stick unsalted butter (leave out to soften)
1/4 cup granulated white sugar
3/4 cup dark brown sugar
1 egg
1 1/2 tsp maple syrup (I eyeballed it...I would maybe add a bit more next time)
1 1/2 cup flour (a little less than that actually, fill up the 1/2 cup about 3/4ths)
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp sea salt/kosher salt (don't use table salt)
1 cup chocolate chips (plus a little extra - my tip for baking - always add a bit of extra chocolate to whatever you are making)
7 strips of bacon (I used 6 this time, but felt that extra strip would have put it over the edge)

Preheat oven to 400F

Bake bacon for 15-20 minutes, until nice and crispy. Drain bacon with a paper towel, leaving a little oil on it. Let it cool for a bit, and then crumble into small pieces.

Turn down oven to 350F

I don't have an electric mixer, so I do this all by hand. If you wanted to use a mixer (you and your modern conveniences)I have no clue what settings or anything like that. Anyway, since it is probably only Jason and Becky reading this, that point is moot anyway.

Cream together the butter and sugar until fluffy. Then add in the egg and mix. Add in the maple syrup and mix. In a separate bowl mix together flour, baking powder and salt. Add the dry mixture to the wet dough and combine. Stir in chocolate chips and bacon. The dough will be pretty thick.

Make the cookies as small/big as you desire. Leave a few inches in between each round on cookie sheet since they do spread a little. Bake for 10 minutes. Let cool a couple of minutes on the sheet before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.

This is my first attempt at writing out a recipe for people to follow. It would make me happy if someone tried it and enjoyed it. I will try to post some other recipes as I bake this winter. And no this isn't going to become some blog that only posts recipes! It will also continue to be a blog where no one really posts much at all.

I did take some pictures of the finished product and stuff, but I am not totally sure how to post a photo, and don't really feel like trying to figure it out right now. I am sure it is easy, but frankly, people don't use their imaginations enough anymore, so this is a great opportunity for that. Your welcome.

Happy bacon and cookie eating to all!

Dylan McKay for Sainthood!

As I brought up in the earlier post I am on a mission to make people understand that Dylan McKay is not a bad boy, in fact he is probably the saintliest of all the 90210 boys (and year I am looking at you Brandon). Now, he does have some skeletons in the closet, but who doesn't. And eventually the series will explore his darker side, but based on the storyline where Jim Walsh decides that Dylan is absolutely by no means allowed to see his daughter, well it makes Jim look like an idiot (which is another mission I am on and will explore more in the future). Lets look at the evidence:

1. Brenda goes to live with Dylan and Dylan sleeps on the couch! Um, yeah exactly, he doesn't try to take advantage of a vulnerable Brenda who is fighting with her parents. What is more upstanding than that?

2. He doesn't approve of Brenda lying to her parents. In fact, several times he tries to convince her to stop going behind their back and be honest, he even offers to face the music with her because he is a stand up guy.

3. He helps Brenda make up with her parents! Yeah that's right, the same people who have told him he is a bad seed (well not Cindy because Cindy is awesome and smart, but Jim is a chauvinist pig who never listens to her). Okay, so I will come clean and say that he does have some selfish motives because Brenda is being annoying and driving him nuts, but still, he put up with her AND helps her go home!

4. I just want to reiterate the point from the previous post about how he lives alone, in his own house and NEVER has a party or like stays up late watching bad tv or really doing anything that a normal 17 year old would do. I mean that is responsibility. That is trustworthiness. That is the person I want my 17 year old dating!

Okay, that is what I got for now. But this is something that perplexes me that we are supposed to view Dylan as this dangerous bad boy. He is like the most upstanding person on the show. I get why Brenda is attracted to him though I mean her dad is constantly telling her she can't see him, that is dangerous - yeah that seems like a good way to get your daughter to stop dating someone.

Jim Walsh is an idiot!

I want to sex you up!

When I saw that the Color Me Badd episode of 90210 was on today I got really excited! As you saw in my chat with Becky from the previous post this was a seminal moment in my young life. My favorite tv show was 90210 and one of my favorite bands was Color Me Badd – the two together – um, perfection! Now, I suppose I should be ashamed to admit this, but screw it, I totally wore out that Color Me Badd cassette, they totally rocked!

Without further ado – my breakdown of the episode, enjoy!

Donna: I was into Color Me Badd before anyone ever heard of them
Kelly: Yeah you and 10,000 other people

Okay, so I love how Donna thinks it is cool to have been into them before anyone else. I mean you hear people say this about like The Beatles or something and you think they are obnoxious, but to say this about Color Me Badd, well I am pretty sure even at the age of 10 I thought Donna was lame. And I also love Kelly’s come back as if 10,000 fans is a lot? I mean that is a pretty limited fan base, I am giving the point to Donna here.

Felice (Donna’s mom): I don’t want you hanging out at the sunset strip, isn’t that a little seedy
Donna: Is it?
Felice: Of course it is”

I don’t know, but I just found this exchange to be funny.

Hotel worker: The hotel is for registered guests only (As Brenda, Donna, Kelly and David try to walk into the Bellagio where Color Me Badd is staying and they are trying to stalk them to get free tickets to some special concert they are having).

Um, this always happens on tv, but have you ever had trouble getting into a hotel? They are four teenagers from Beverly Hills, they aren’t dressed like bums, there is absolutely no way that they would have a problem getting into the hotel. PUHLEASE!

Dylan: I am a human male.

So, if you feel the need to make this statement you obviously have some insecurities, right? I often question how Dylan is considered a bad boy? I mean yes, he was an alcoholic, but he is sober now and like really into being sober. He has his own house at like 16 and never throws a party or does anything particularly crazy. You're telling me there wouldn’t be a party here every weekend? Every night? In fact, the only party I can ever remember him throwing is a bbq that 8 people attended. Oooh what a bad boy!

Oh I always forget about the stupid sub-plot where the guys order a stripper (really?) and AndrĂ©a comes over to study with Brandon. First of all, who goes out in the rain without calling? I mean, what if he wasn’t home? You just rode the bus and probably had to walk a bunch, in the rain? I hate rain! I don’t even like the think about going out in it. She is like single white female or something. Call ahead! So now the guys are freaking out, I mean Andrea might write a four part series on this for the Blaze (she totally would or probably just force Brandon to write it).

Ah a time before cell phones! Steve tries to call the stripper to call her off, but gets her home answering machine because she already left. Shit! What are they going to do?!

And they won’t tell her to leave because they don’t want to tell her a stripper is coming, I don’t know, why don’t you tell her that you are having a guy’s day? Why not tell her she wasn’t invited and to back off! Better yet, tell her she looks like a 35 year old and she will run home in the rain crying and maybe even kill herself or something (very special episode)!

Now we are pretending the stripper is Cindy’s niece. Hijinks!

Meanwhile, Donna’s mom is slumming it on the sunset strip for a “meeting.” What meeting could she possible have at the Belaggio hotel on a Saturday? Then again, we know that Donna has a learning disability, so we can’t really blame her for not cracking the code, but what about the rest of them. I mean David must be mega smart since he was somehow able to graduate early because all of his friends were. I don’t know about you, but in my high school that was a totally valid reason for skipping a grade.

David: Plan b is to think of a plan b.
See, he really is mega smart. Oh that silver!

Kelly is a total bitch. She comes up with plan b by stealing a key, but ditches David and Brenda in the process and then Donna – even though she doesn’t even like Color Me Badd? All she had to do was like whisper to them, come this way… I am on a mission to remind people what a bitch Kelly is since they tried to make her all saint like once Brenda left. Girl is a grade a bitch. I mean Donna has been established as basically the world’s biggest Color Me Badd fan (I mean even bigger than me) and yet Kelly, her supposed best friend ditches her when she has the keys to the kingdom! Bitch.

OMG Donna just saw her mom KISSING another man! No Fuckin way! That was her so-called meeting? I can’t even believe it. I think even when I was 10 I saw that one coming.

Ok, so once Kelly gets to the floor the group is staying on she gets mistaken by a groupie as a groupie. And Kelly like doesn’t even understand what a groupie is. It is amazing!

Kelly to groupie: I don’t get it, what do you want from them? – Really Kelly, you used to be a slut like two years ago, you know, you totally know…

Groupie (In a really condescending tone): What are you doing here; you don’t exactly look like their accountant or anything.
This is awesome; they should make a show with this funny groupie. I mean good point; Kelly says her and her friends want to just meet them. BORING! You are 17, live a little. Have a beer, do something!

Um, Kelly lends one of the guys a dollar and doesn’t realize until the guy says his name that he is Brian Abrams from Color me Badd! And now they are all out in the hall! Aaaaah! This is so exciting! They are so dreamy! (For the record, they are so not, they are freakin weird looking, why did I like these guys? Oh right, their beautiful music!)

Kelly’s big question to the group is, so, I hear you guys get mobbed at malls now? I mean I know she isn’t Andrea or Brandon, but come on, you couldn’t come up with anything better than that. And best of all is this:

Kelly: I am personally sick of malls
One of the dudes in Color Me Badd: I kind of miss it

Malls are totally last season.

Oh Donna is acting all pissy and as always no one figures out something might be wrong. You’d think Brenda would be more attuned to these signs since she just did this herself! After a tearful phone call with her dad she finally breaks! That took a lot less time than to get Brenda to break! But then again, Donna is lot weaker because she has a learning disability.

Meanwhile, back at the casa Walsh, Andrea the investigative reporter sits and chats with the stripper for like hours and never even thinks something is up! Andrea decides to go (since it is clear Brandon isn’t sleeping with her today). And now it is time for the stripper to do her thing. To Color me badd! That is such a weird coincidence? But alas, now the guys know her so well and feel uncomfortable with her stripping for them! What about that statement before Dylan, that you are a human male? More evidence to the contrary, just saying.

OMG Cindy and Jim come home and the stripper is still there! The stripper introduces herself to Cindy as Cindy’s cousin! HILARIOUS! Brandon has a great cover though, different Cindy, Cindy sanders, but Cindy isn’t really buying it, wouldn’t she be Steve’s cousin too? Why would you introduce her like that! Jim chalks it up to weird California families. Oh the Walshes! Doesn’t Cindy remember that we found out a few weeks ago that Steve was adopted, so insensitive.

David (trying to comfort Donna): Maybe your mom and day have some kind of arrangement.

How exactly is this comforting? Have you met Donna? I think this might freak her out even more than her mom just simply having an affair!

Kelly finally calls them to tell them she is with Color Me Badd, took her long enough. Brenda is all excited that Kelly got passes, but then she remembers Donna’s ordeal and that it is rude to be happy. And then tells about what happened and that she should definitely still go and report back. Um, Kelly isn’t even a fan of them? Maybe Donna needs her best friend? Or maybe she should offer Donna the chance to go? I mean it is her favorite band, wouldn’t that cheer her up? Brenda is being pretty clueless here. She hangs up the phone and doesn’t even tell Donna that Kelly is with them? WTF?

Donna and her mom have a showdown in the lobby. EMMY EMMY EMMY! They won emmys for this, right?

Brenda (to her parents): Donna had a kind of weird thing happen to her today.

I personally think it is a great way to explain what happened….

So, Donna’s mom comes to get her at the Walshes but she refuses to go and so just leaves to let her cool off and Cindy comes to comfort Donna.

Cindy: Whatever she does in her own life has nothing to do with you.
Donna: How can that be?

Can we say narcissism!

Now comes the inappropriate part where Cindy tells Donna all about the time where she almost cheated on Jim in the first season. Um, really? NO! Not okay! And there is no way that once Donna deals with her own stuff she wouldn’t tell Brenda this. I was a 16 year old girl that is how it works.

Please note that Brandon and Brenda are talking in their bathroom? Why, I do not know. And then Jim comes in! I guess the acoustics are better in there?

Jim: Tough news about Donna”
Brenda: This morning she was Donna, and now she is still Donna, but a completely different Donna”
Some other things are said
Jim: We really are square

OMG Jim found the stripper’s business card!
Jim: Brandon in two years remind me to tell you about my bachelor party
Um, no, he holds such a double standard it drives me crazy! Can you imagine if Brenda had hired a stripper? Guarantee you she wouldn’t get that reaction.

Aaw Donna and her mom have a nice heart to heart. And then she encourages her to go out with her friends! She never does that! Maybe things will be okay after all. Did you know one of Nat’s burgers is actually the best medicine, not laughter like was previously thought.

Okay maybe Kelly isn’t such a bitch, she did bring Color Me Badd to meet Donna at the peach pit! OMG OMG OMG! I think they would have flipped out a little more, Donna blurts out one omg. No way she keeps it that cool if she is as big of a fan as she says she is. I call liar!

We get a nice musical performance from Color Me Badd to end the episode. AWESOME!

Whatever happened to Color Me Badd? I’d like a where they are now.

"Didn't she take a shower last night?"

I'm baaack! You are probably all going to wish I wasn't, since once again I am switching gears and devoting this blog to re-living the classic high school years of 90210! Get excited! To begin I am doing it gchat style as I gave Becky a play by play of the episode, it will be like you were living in the house with the Walshes! ENJOY!

disclaimer: Becky is actually quite smart, d
espite some of her comments in the chat below. She may or may not have been drunk during this discussion.

disclaimer 2: Much appreciation if you forgive what I am sure is atrocious spelling and grammar.

disclaimer 3: Sorry for the appearance of this post, I am apparently not too savvy, but you loved me for other reasons, right?

Are you still here? Next up: Color Me Badd! Strippers! Donna gets a problem!

Things that Debbie likes

Hello Everyone! This is Becky guest blogging for Debbie! I know. Jason, you must be really excited since you 'check this blog once a week' and it hasn't been updated since November. Well, besides Erin's post yesterday. YES, I read it.

I am Debbie's knight in shining armor, stepping in to write a blog entry and SAVE this blog when everyone-Jason and Erin, had lost hope for it.

I must admit, I kind of lost hope for a little while too.

But it's fine, cuz here I am and there you are and we're going to get this show back on the road. I had a hard time thinking about what I could blog about here. Sure, no one's reading so it doesn't really matter...but what about my inner critic? The little bald guy, with glasses, wearing a suit, with a pocket watch in hand who's critiquing my every move? I need to please him. I NEED TO PLEASE HIM! That's what she said.

But I also need to please Debbie. And she's a tough crowd. So let me blog about things Debbie likes. *please note that this list is no way supposed to be considered a definite guide to who Debbie is and what she likes. it is just a few things I could think of...and I'm not very smart*

1) The Wire. I don't know anything about this show except that it mostly takes place in Baltimore. I have been to Baltimore before. It's pretty fun. There's that whole inner harbor area that's pretty, and you other things that are there?

2) Seinfeld. HMM. Debbie really likes Seinfeld. I really don't like Seinfeld. I just feel like the characters are all obnoxious and selfish. In theory the episodes are funny, but then when I sit down to watch one I'm just like 'why is this happening to me?'. The same goes for...

3) Curb Your Enthusiasm. What I said about Seinfeld, just ditto it. The part about Debbie really liking it, too. She really does like 'curb'.

4) Trying new foods. Debbie considers herself a 'foodie' and loves to try new foods. You know of a new thai place, she's down. You heard about an awesome Korean wing place (true story) and want to go? She'll accompany you. You want to order food for lunch and have heard of a place selling pretzels with an olive on them next to a hamburger patty (untrue story)? She'll probably try that too. Now, this doesn't go for all fast food obviously. Cuz like right now there's DELICIOUS looking new sandwich at Dunkin' Donuts. It's basically two waffles with egg and possibly cheese and possibly bacon in the middle of them. A WAFFLE SANDWICH. I don't think Debbie would want to try that. Well, maybe she would...but not from Dunkin' Donuts. Or maybe she would. Well, she at least wouldn't like it if it had vanilla frosting. I know that much.

5) The Decembrists. OH YES, Debbie really likes The Decembrists. She's gone to see them a bunch of times and she talks about them. And when I asked her to give me new music for MIPOD she gave me a few albums of them. Thanks, Deb!

6) Annoying people.


7) Chocolate. Debbie really likes chocolate. Like, really likes chocolate. In particular, she likes dark chocolate.
8) BECKY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I don't know if it's because I'm adorable, or if it's because I'm creative, or if it's the way my teeth are shining INSANELY in this picture...but Debbie kind of likes me. And I kind of like her too.

8) Relaxing. Debbie really likes relaxing. She curls up in her sweatpants and her Queens long-sleeved pink shirt (you know the one I'm talking about, right Jason?) and she can stay put for hours. Good for her!

9) Not relaxing. Debbie also likes going out. In particular, she likes going to bars for happy hour, out to new restaurants (see above), over to her friends' places (preferably if they live near her), to do karaoke ('Livin' On a Prayer' anyone?), to do stuff for Barack Obama, to parties....and lots of other things.

10) The TV show 'Chuck'. It's apparently very funny. HMMM

11) Coach Bags. Is this list painting an accurate picture?

12) Cheerios for breakfast. I don't know if she really likes this...but she certainly does eat them so...they can't be all bad, can they?

13) That song 'And I'm proud to be an American where at least I know I'm free!'. She and Erin did a horrifying rendition of it once. HORRIFYING. I've lost so many hours of sleep over that don't even know.

14) ERIN! I would be remiss if I didn't mention Erin in here. She guest blogged for Debbie too and definitely deserves some credit/a shoutout. So Erin, HI. Debbie likes you!

And what about...

15) JASON!! Debbie's one loyal blog reader and brother. She likes him too...or at least I think she does. Where would we be without you, huh? WHERE?! No really, where?

In conclusion, Debbie might be a Seinfeld/'Curb' watching, new-food trying, annoying-people hating, relaxing-loving, Decembrists-listening gal, but in the end it all comes down to this picture:

Debbie, and the three people who either a) read this blog or b) now write it.

Yes We Can *Blog for Debbie*!

so, i told the debster that i would blog for her, in her stead, even, whilst she's gallivanting around israel. slacker.

i don't have so many blog ideas of late, but in honor of jason, who checks at least weekly (in vain) to see if debbie has actually blogged, i'm going with....

do you know what really grinds my gears?

do you know what really grinds my gears? when someone, due to their own incompetence misses out on something, and then they proceed to ask you a million questions and make it your responsibility to fix it. Like it's your fault they're in the pickle to begin with. that really grinds my gears.

do you know what else really grinds my gears? when someone dressed up as a pot smoking polar bear punches little kids in the nose. don't get me wrong, a lot of kids deserve a good nose punching, but let's be honest. polar bears don't need any more bad press. their habitat is going out of style like...i don't know, i'm not very stylish. that's not the point! the point is, if you're going to smoke illegal substances and punch children, don't pretend to be a polar bear. be a koala. mad props for mustering up the energy for punching people while high. every commercial i've seen of late involving marijuana makes it look like you'll never move again. so, yeah, that really grinds my gears.

do you know what else really grinds my gears? having to pee, but being too lazy to get up. i'm going to work on that right now, actually.

Countdown to Obamageddon: less than 48 hours until polls start closing

Just to update all of you, I am in fact going mental.

I hope all of you are dealing with the upcoming election better than I am, if you are, any wisdom from you would be much appreciated (though lets be honest, something is kinda wrong with you if you are dealing with this sanely).

This entertained me, though it also made me uncomfortable because I mean, how stupid can these people be?

Countdown to Obamageddon: 2 days to go

Wow, so here we are, less than 48 hours until the polls open, how are all of you doing? I've been better, very nervous, hoping these next 48 hours go by quickly. I've been kind of busy these past two days, so I haven't had time to watch any Obama speeches, I know you have all been waiting with breath that is bated. So, you can wait a little longer, while I tell you about what I have been doing with my time (I suppose you could just scroll down to the videos, but lets be honest you all love to read my boring commentary).

1. Canvassing! Yes that is right, my brother and I carpooled with two strangers to West Philadelphia (where I was born and raised on a playground where I spent most of my days) to canvas for Barack Obama. It was a really amazing day. It is rare to feel like you are really doing something that could help or make a difference, but I do think yesterday we got a few people to vote that might not have, and we got some people who will volunteer who wouldn't have, but mostly we talked with people we would never had a chance to meet, people whose experiences are very different than mind, but because of Barack Obama we all realize that there is more that unites us than divides us, sometimes we need someone to come along and remind us of that. I mean we met awesome people like Cynthia who pretty much insisted we come into her home and fed us delicious food and who discussed with us for her disdain for all things Mccain and Palin and why Obama is so important to elect or the 90 year old lady we met who talked about how she was the first black woman to vote in her precinct. I am so glad I went, it was a really terrific day, but still didn't make me any less nervous about the election, but I can tell you, Southwest Philly is in the bag for Obama!

2. Friends! So, friends are great and all, but can be kind of time consuming. I mean they always want to see you, and spend time with you and talk to you. And I mean I want to do the same things with them, except right before the election, when I kind of just want to be home watching Keith Olberman and Rachel Maddow and checking the same 6 blogs for the hundredth time that day. But I am lucky that my friends have forced me to not only do this, since then I would probably be going even crazier than I already am.

3. Work. I used to blog at work, ah those were the days. Work has been really busy recently, I've had all these meetings, and stuff to do, I mean it is so rude, don't they realize we are so close to an important election and my mind should be focused on these things, rather than Tu B'Shevat.

4. Halloween! I am not really a fan of Halloween, but I am a fan of cute little kids dressed up in cute costumes, and so I tolerate Halloween for this. I may have almost stole a few children, but then I reminded myself that if I was a convicted felon I wouldn't be able to vote, and I love voting, so that would have made me sad.

Now, that you've gotten through that on to the videos. I am posting three to make up for the days that I didn't post any. The first isn't too long, but the second two are on the longer side. It is Sunday though, what else are you doing (besides watching football, and this makes a great companion piece)? I thought these three speeches would all go nicely together, so sit back and remember days that seem like yesterday, but also seem like three years ago.

South Carolina Victory Speech

MLK Day Speech

Philadelphia Race Speech

Countdown to Obamageddon: 6 days to go

I just watched Obama's half hour infomercial on tv. Check it out here:

Okay, so my brother tells me that this does not count as a speech, and he is right. I may have promised that I would post a speech everyday (I am too lazy to go back and check if I actually promised this, so I am just going to do it. Check out Barack Obama at the Virginia Jefferson Jackson Dinner, it is a half an hour, so a bit of a time commitment, but well worth it.

I am going too crazy today to really write anything coherent. 6 days, I don't know how I am going to make it 6 days. I am like a loose cannon that can burst at any moment, so I would tread carefully around me for the next 6 days.
