Exciting doctors appointment news and random politics, what an interesting combination

There's a kitty who really would like to claw me right now, so I figured that it would be nice to keep up the tradition and write. You'd think that she would never have been payed attention to.

I watched most of President Reagan's three, four, five, ah I lost count, funeral services yesterday. I didn't think I would seeing as if, looking back on life retrospectively, I definitely would not, had I been older, supported his policies at all. He was a nice guy, and as a kid, that's all I remember about him. We here in the U.S. have been absolutely bombarded by coverage and tributes of the man and I and my many liberal friends just have/had it with the over coverage. But I watched it, mostly because you generally don't get to see a state funeral many times in life. So what you're watching, what I watched was something in history that you hope you'll see very little in your life time.

I didn't like some politicians politicization of the event though. George W Bush had a huge tribute to Reagan, paid for by Bush Chainey '04. And W had the audacity to insert his politics of erasing evil in the eulogy. I hope that we can find a leader that will bring together the country as Reagan did. Somehow I think this is unlikely, at least with the current administration. I'm just glad the whole thing is over so now I can watch CNN and not hear about tibutes or see coverage of this thing or other. At least George HW Can just go on; he's parachuting for the last time today for his birthday. Lets hope the country can go on that quickly as well.

On a lighter and more happy note, I also did go to the doctor yesterday too. Besides talking about fishing and the fact that when I go to Alaska this summer I must bring him back copious amounts f fish, he did say that my x-rays looked good and that I could come back in December. Translation, I've completely made it through this injury and I'm ready to take on the world with a lot more than a computer, a speakerphone, and a live journal. I suppose all I can hope and pray for now is luck, pure and utter luck, to get me through the rest of my education.

    The plan is to go to the beach this afternoon, but I'm not sure when. We don't have too much special planned besides that, but it's the last full day…

    I'm not sure what the plan is today, but we have done what, in my opinion, is the perfect vacation activity, slept in and veged out so far. I think…

    Well, we made it, finally! Everyone's up right now, but we're not doing anything so I'm writing. We got here last night, after several delays and…
