Finally time to get my Dad's b-day gift. Leaving right now to get him an Olympus C-50. The price has dropped from about $600 to about $300. And if I'm nice, he might even let me borrow it. ;)

Weird. I just went to get my Dad's belated b-day gift. My Mom gave me money for the camera, and I bought the memory card and extended warranty. The weird thing was, even though I was paying cash, they wanted to see my drivers license and credit card. Well, I just had my passport and my credit card is expired (waiting for the new one in the mail), and he had to call in to ask if it was okay to sell to me even though I didn't have those things. This was at the Shutter Bug in Washington Square Mall, btw.

So, any idea why? Is this some new Patriot Act weirdness?

Has anyone else experienced something like this?

I think I shall have to call their corparate HQ, and ask.

Those moral quandaries...

There are a number of people on livejournal whom their friends have made fan communities for them. I don't know if I should go off on how sad that is, or be upset that I don't have a fan community. I think I'm just going to go have a cookie.

Man... My head is still sore (as in to touch, not like a headache) from the ladder hitting it yesterday. At least the bump is almost gone. I was looking like I made fun of Mike Tyson's voice, to his face. But right afterward, Jamie actually attacked the ladder to defend me. Who can't love Jamie? :-)

Pet peeve #1987213488:

Ever since Peanut Butter M&M's came out, I can not find large bags of Reese's Pieces anywhere. I want my Reese's Pieces, and I want them in quantity, damn it!

Wow! So, I wonder if my family is on a terrorist watch list now. We live on this little loop that has a shared lawn that the community chips in to pay for the upkeep (watering and mowing). So everyone writes check to this one neighbor and she pays for the mowing service and the water bill.

A few days ago she was in the paper and she headed up a Muslim group that gave money to some muslim group who then it is suspected might have given money to terrorist organizations. Basicly, money from her group might have indirectly gone to terrorist groups, without her knowledge. As she said, she took the group she was giving money too at face value, that it was going for medical and schooling needs.

So, since we send her money (for the lawn), what are the odds we are on some government list as supporting terrorists?

I expect to see Ashcroft knocking on the door any day now.

If I am elected President, as a test run, I will legalize marijauna in Alaska and Hawaii, if their state governments agree to being the test bed for this experiment.

I feel that marijauna presents a very small risk factor to our populace, but we spend billions trying to capture, put through court, and inprison thousands of our population. This also costs us in that these people are removed from productive society. Not just while they are in jail, but even after, given how hard it will be for them to find someplace that will hire and exconvict.

Plus, through taxing marijauna, states stand to actually make money that could be used for our school and other programs.

I would like to run a 5 year experiment in Hawaii and or Alaska to see what the results are. How it affects crime. If it increases use amoung youth. And basicly how it positively and negatively affect society. With that information, Congress can decide ifwe should remove the nation criminalization of marijauna, and then let states decide how they wish to treat this substance.

Why Hawaii and Alaska? Because they are isolated from the main 48 states, so there is far less risk of people just crossing a state border to get marijauna to cart back home.

I think this will allow a lot of people to see through the myths of pot and make hard fact and experience based desicions on this substance.

Vote Harrison in 2004!
