Wasting time

So, I've got plenty of time on my hands right now. Time to sleep, time to read, time to cook, time to talk on the phone. Time to email people I haven't spoken to in years. Time to watch the BBC Planet Earth special on DVD, the whole thing. It was fucking awesome.

I'm home from work with a broken knee.

Which is why I suddenly have the time and inclination to start a "blagh". Plenty of internet time at the moment. I also found time to organize my photos on one of those photo-organizing websites. Next I'm going to get one of those Facebook accounts and get back in touch with even more people I haven't spoken to in years.

I broke my knee in Peru on August 22nd. I had surgery to fix it in San Francisco on August 28th. That's what, about seven weeks laid up? I've actually been keeping busy. Only just now starting to get bored.

I really should tell the story about how I broke my knee, but that will have to wait for a later post. There are other things on my mind right now.

As I mentioned before, lots of time on my hands lately. The other day I spent WAY too much of it on this website.

I don't know what it is about that woman. She's like a high-speed wreck between a hearse and an ice cream truck. It's impossible to look away. I have this bizarre love/hate thing going on with that lady. I find her endlessly fascinating. All of it, the whole shit show, from day one. It's been great. And it continues.

While leisurely browsing the web yesterday, I was fortunate enough to stumble upon

Which led me to

And this, which is fucking hilarious.

First let me say, I really don't think Sarah Palin is an evil woman. I truly don't. I think she was an embarrassment to the great state of Alaska, I think she holds some repulsive and delusional political views, but I don't think she has evil in her heart. I would go fishing with her, even go out for beers after. I believe she means well, in her own crazy little mind. I also think she was thrown into a spotlight that she had no idea she wasn't ready for yet.

All that being said, Levi Johnston, you are my hero.

When does that Playgirl come out? Because it seems to me that Sarah Barracuda's embarrassment level will likely be related to how well the issue sells. I'm always willing to help see justice served, and if I have to look at naked pictures of a hot, young, Alaskan man to do it... Well, that's a sacrifice I'm willing to make. You know, for the good of the country and all...
