article dump:

Been in my drafts folder for a while. for those on (and off) my FL that said mccain's tax idea was better... well, i certainly make under $100,000 and this was an independant study after all. http://www.nytimes.com/2008/10/31/us/politics/31taxes.html?ref=us

Why yes, it seems that palin turned more ppl off than the handful that i personally know: http://ap.google.com/article/ALeqM5jLmKbgJ9-ZUE7iK-CRfAzoJPbfjwD948L1NG1

who's the electoral college anyway? http://www.cnn.com/2008/LIVING/wayoflife/11/04/mf.electoral.college/

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2008/11/05/AR2008110502053.html?hpid=topnews has some good things from leaders around the globe - even the unfriendlies. i'm seriously sensing what i'm calling the 'yuuri-effect' and in my naivite, i HOPE it works out ^_^

there's a good possibility i'll be throwing more links in through the day, but i SHOULD do some work around here LOL. I will end with this tho...

While i'd been supportive of obama since primaries, i was pretty indifferent towards the republicans. in 2000, i hoped that mccain would have been on the ticket cuz bush was just OH GOD NO. While i don't agree that his ideas for policies were in my best interest as a lower-middle-class person, i do think that the choices he and his campain made were quite damning. Palin was a huge mistake and turned off people very quickly after she began to speak. In 2000 he 'took the high road' and strove to run a clean campaign. people across the globe had been talking about how this campaign was anything BUT clean. (i read foreign newspapers - or have the spanish ones read to me by my lovely coworker who sits for citizenship in 2 weeks ^_^). There's no doubt both had the country's best interest in mind, but while hte president himself doesn't do all that much, what he DOES do leaves a profound impact. there's the possibility of having to appoint supreme court justicies... that's a lifetime appointment and as an american, balance is good there, but as a woman, a conservitve court shift really upsets me. while i don't think i'd be getting that abortion, i don't wnat it mandated that i CAN'T. something about america being a free country then having rights taken away is kinda annoying (like CA and what looks like the outcome of prop8). then there's the VETO. congress can make attempts and strides and stuff (some not great, clearly), but it's the president's right to VETO or sign the bill.

What excites me the most is the reaction from the 'unfriendly' countries. They wanna talk, they want DIPLOMACY. this is a sign of a good thing for the world, and hopefully we can be rid of this shoot first ask questions later mentality can go away. put the guns away, have a drink, have a chat, and go from there. America's been a global bully for way too long. it's time we get our "time out" and think about what we've done.

i now return you to your regularly scheduled workday.

EDIT: i'm so unproductive today... here's an excerpt from wiki about my favorite president. oh he was a republican, btw.

In many ways Coolidge's style of governance was a throwback to the passive presidency of the nineteenth century.[1] He restored public confidence in the White House after the scandals of his predecessor's administration, and left office with considerable popularity.[2] As his biographer later put it, "he embodied the spirit and hopes of the middle class, could interpret their longings and express their opinions. That he did represent the genius of the average is the most convincing proof of his strength."[3]

EDIT2: more from world leaders, in a nutshell: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/americas/us_elections_2008/7710020.stm

o3. Find the fifth sentence.
o4. Post the text of the next five sentences in your journal along with these instructions:
--Don't dig for your favorite book, the cool book, or the intellectual one: pick the CLOSEST.
--Tag five other people to do the same.

"These individuals are indeed qualified to implement FNA. However, good results depend on their having received training in aspiration wtih frequent performance of the technique and on having made provisions for proper handling of aspirated material by suitably schooled personell. When the clinician involved is not a surgeon but is an internist, gynecologist, or general clinician, the degree of expertise brought to the aspiration my be considerably less. these physicians may deal with patients in need of FNA less often and thus have little ongoing practice in the method. it has been shown that those performing aspirations on an occasional basis do not obtain the best results possible."

there, some FNA qualificaions from my Modern cytopathology book.

i'm exhausted, sore, and don't remember much of anything at the moment, but i'll give a try?

what loke remembers...? )

anyway, i'm sure there are many blanks here to be filled, especially concerning kuma-gwendal and the 'breasts'. XD i haven't gotten my pix off my camera yet, so i've none to post yet. tho Gunter totally loved being surrounded by soukoku (2 daikenjas and 2 yuuris ^_^) *nosebleeds*

maybe more as i remember it.

Otakon

glitteringloke: (VB - Orpheus - oh noes!)
Ok, so since i'm super busy tonight and tomorrow morning, likely.. those coming to otakon who want to find me can do so in the following fashions:

-randomly find me.: i'm veigue lungberg on friday, gunter von christ on saturday and kaitou kid on sunday. there's a tales photoshoot fri at 4 i THINK at the fountains and my panel is at 6 in panel 2. saturday, kkm shoot at the harborplace fountains (not connected with the con) at 10am. sunday 9am in i think panel 1 is the mystery panel.

-text me. this is a public entry, so if you don't have my number and you want it, then send me a pm or email. also, my AIM when i'm offline will send to my phone. cool isn't it? just make sure you tell me who you are.

-call me: i'm likely not to hear or feel my phone, so it's likely you wont' get me to answer right away. kinda the same with the texting, but that's easier to reply. i hate listening to voice mails.

i'm minimally hyped for otakon this year, meaning, i'm less likely for ZOMG HUG TIEM! so please ask before glomping me. unless you're on a very short list. those ppl know who they are.

RE: Tales Panel for those involved - sadly, i don't think i'm gonna have the epic page done, so it'll be a folder of videos and pics. just hopefully you guys can answer some qs that i'm lacking in knowledge of, esp the newer games. stress has made my brain mushy.

aaaaaaand, i think that's it. see some of you tomorrow or friday!

Imagine a world which people and events are drawn to like a moth to the flame. By some it's considered the afterlife, and by others a station between dimensions. Whatever it may be, its unsettling mystery keeps you at the edge of your seat. You never know who you may encounter or what may happen. This is the Vortexx. It has swept you away from your home and deposited you onto unfamiliar grounds.

Unpredictable weather, untrustworthy food, and multiple strings pulled by imaginary fingers that make all who inhabit this world dance;

Your imagination is only the beginning...

Ok, so my new purple PSP is on it's way, and once i finally get it and get it running, i will be willing to reluctantly part with my blue one. Gamestop's page doesn't tell me how much they sell used ones for, but ebay has ranged from about 90-120. use that as a guide.

now, i've taken quite good care of my psp, but it does have external wear on it. because i use it so much XD. most of it's life i had a screen protector on it, so there's only minor dings and stuff on it. nothing much to note about. the system was upgraded about a week ago, so it should be about up to date. I would really like to just give it to someone, but it's in such good condition that i'd rather sell it. and i need money to cover a lot of the cost of the one i just imported. (and the tv out cables i think i still need to buy T_T)

so, flist, if you know anyone or you yourself is looking for a way to spend some xmas cash, i'll be offering up a japanese BLUE psp. all games are region free but UMD videos are NOT. I'll include a 1gb memory stick and power cord (of course). sorry, you will NOT get crisis core with this system XD i'll even mail it out fully charged XD. I will ship with insurance, if shipping is required. if you're close enough to baltimore, you can come pick it up ^_^

First, i would like to know who is interested (Via comments-post is unlocked). then i will contact each person about pricing and somehow I'll come to an agreement. I'd do first come first serve, but it's not fair for those that don't check lj often.
