"To announce there must be no criticism of the president, or that we are to stand by the president, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public."

It's Friday. Time for Friday Fivin'

Why the heck is there no Friday Five today? The one week that I actually remember to do it, and there are no questions. ARRRRGGGGGHHHH Such is my life. Well, fine. I'll make up my own Friday Five.

1. Why does your life suck? I dunno. It' doesn't always suck, just sometimes. And I think it tends to be a problem of my own perception, but my sulking gets in the way of recognizing that at the appropriate times.

2. You sure? Yes. I am always right. Remember that.

3. So, why do you sometimes perceive your life to suck? Because I still live with my parents. There are many worse things out there, you might say. But you don't know my parents.

4. Do you mean that? Not really. I'm just in a bad mood.

5. Why a bad mood? I live with my parents, remember?

And the hunt is ON OVER

My search for an affordable Cleveland apartment is officially over. I've scoured the scene, looked high and low, and have come up with absolutely nothing within my price range. Of course, my price range is probably ridiculously low, but that's what I get for being a private school's laboratory pee-on. I am now condemned to live out the rest of the school year with my folks, who never fail to remind me that as long as I'm living under they're roof, I will be treated like a child, ultimatums and all. It's the story of my life.

On the bright side, I'm not home that often, so my parents and I have fewer opportunities to regret my post-collegiate move back to the nest. But it's just so hard coming home after living parent-free for so long. I've been finding myself fantasizing about hopping the grad school train to UCLA just to be as far away from them as possible. It's horrible, I know. But desperate girls will do desperate things when it comes to preserving their sanity. And right now mine is vanishing, just like my independece.

For now, I just have to tough it out with Mom and Dad and hope I still feel like an adult by the time I move out on my own. Apartment, sweet apartment, I can not wait until I finally find you.

Hey, am I alone, or what?

Does anyone out there know where they are going in life? Where, in ten years, they will find themselves? Has anyone got a game plan? If so, make one up for me, because right now I don't have any of those things, and it's starting to make me anxious. Graduate school is in my future, this I know, but besides that I got nuthin. Absolutely freakin nuthin.

A crystal ball would be nice right now. Anyone got one I can borrow? Maybe I could buy it off of you... I pay cash. Call me.

Think star for dyslexics.

You knew this was coming. I've been a rat owner for five months now, and as my regular readers know, I'm crazy about my little albino rodent. His name is Fat Bastard, and he's the best darn pet I've ever had. So I figured it's now time to push a little propaganda. Hey, all you internet nerds looking for a pet: buy a rat.

Rats are some of the smartest little animals out there. They love exploring things and playing with you. You can even teach them tricks. Forget Willard... he was a freak. The rats you get at the pet shop are the friendliest little furballs. And buying one will save her from being eaten by a python. You won't be sorry if you went and got one. Buy a rat!

Smack me now... I need it

Lately I've been finding myself complaining about my job instead of being thankful I have one. This happens to me every time... I get lucky, I get blessed, I get anything good, and for a while I'm thankful. Then, after I get used to my new blessing, I start feeling resentful of something... maybe by the things I didn't get. Before I know it, my thanks turn into episodes of intense bitching. It's madness, and it's happened again. It's time to reevaluate my blessings.

+ I am thankful for being born in the first place
+ My job, without which I'd be penniless
+ The opportunity to do important work
+ My friends, my amazing friends
+ Sarah, Steph, Alicia, Tina, Mark, Lisa, Theresa...
+ My brother and sister, the putz twins
+ The rest of the Vurbic clan
+ Parents that would sacrifice a lung for me
+ My little rat, Fat Bastard, who eats my sweaters
+ My high school diploma and college degree
+ The lab crew that keeps me sane at work
+ Jenn, for fighting for me in the first place
+ The infinite universe and the beautiful stars in it
+ Rights, opportunities, & choices women now have
+ The bed I sleep in and the roof over my head
+ Art, music, fiction, & poetry
+ The ability to pick up a book and read it through
+ Valerie Stultz, pastor of Berea Methodist
+ Rachel Joy Scott and Cassie Rene Bernall
+ 23 full years on the planet Earth & the eternity beyond
+ Two arms, legs, eyes and ears that all work
+ Always having shoes, coats, and blankets in winter
+ E-mail, which helps me keep in touch with people
+ Court, Stan, Tray, Erin, Amber, Brina, Mich...
+ Bebo Norman, for not sucking
+ Every hand-written letter I've ever gotten
+ Never having heard the sound of gunfire in person
+ Everyone who ever took a chance on me
+ Including God

My list. I should do this a little more often.

The Friday Five

1. What vehicle do you drive? Aqua blue 1996 Chevy Cavalier

2. How long have you had it? Since September '98. I got it a couple days after getting my driver's licence, and the first week I put over 800 miles on it. I can't believe it still runs.

3. What is the coolest feature on your vehicle? There are no cool features. It gets me from point A to point B. That's about it.

4. What is the most annoying thing about your vehicle? No power windows, locks, anything. Before I bought my Cavi it was a rental car, so t's a stripped-down Flinstone ride.

5. If money were no object, what vehicle would you be driving right now? A new Volkwaggon Beetle, half blue, half green.
