incongruities

I think I remember that an incongruity is a deviation of the norm, something that's different from what has happened in the past. It started this morning with white, not white cotton, not white clouds, but white snow. It's not supposed to snow in April, but we had light flurries today at our house as we left htis morning. Then parts of Baghdad were liberated. I don't think the war is close from being over yet though. As Saddam was being trampled on, his efigy being passed around throughout the central square in Baghdad, I think that there is a lot of reconstruction to go. Utilities have to be restored, political systems rebuilt, and rogue forces removed and/or "Eliminated" as the cen comm people say. It still puts a somewhat non human quality on the war. Though I am happy that the people of Iraq have been helped, I wonder if it was the right thing to do, was it worth the gallons of blood that were shed, I'm still undecided on that one.

The day at school has been very average, I've been continuing to listen to the Left Behind series. IT's good, yet scary. I'm missing a part which I'll have to procure from somewhere else and get placed in the special place that is cool. I hope to take home my mom's sound mixer today and hook it up so that my show will be even cooler and more easy to operate on my weekend broadcasting duties.

On the beverage front, I have no alcohol at home except for some irish cream which I might make a dessert coffee tonoight. Tea will be in order for this afgternoon, as usual.

The broad front, we have no news there, as usual. We will update you when the apocalypse comes or we have more news. Thank you for your cooperation.

Not much else is going on here, I think I'll end this entry and think about the 31 minutes we have left in school. I ordered a mixer yesterday on EBAY and then realized that the ad was wrong, basically I bid on what I thought was a newer model, and it was in fact an older one. We're still discussing what to do, but at least the dudes taht I bought it from or theoretically bought it from are willing to work with me and I'm not s.o.l. At least I don't think so.

More later maybe after tea about the events of yesterday of which were still quite boring. Peace.

Am I obsessing

We must find a b alliteritave for music, because that's another thing that I talk about in my journal, the music and how freaking cool it is. Today it's b-tribe, a cd I'm downloading from Steve's ftp site, the guy whose supposed to get me the dvds. I've written him again about it but I decided I couldn't take it anymore and started downloading the stuff seeing as I'm not paying for bandwidth these days. This stuff is kind of kcol, must be a Spanish dude playing to a dance beat; those who don't like techno or driving beats probably wouldn't like B-Tribe, but those who like a combination of Spanish freak show and Enigma would love it. flamenco and techno I can see going together now, wow.

I had planned to write about yesterday's nothingness in this entry. I spent much of the day sitting there, and also going on ebay to look at mixers. I picked out my mixer, and it will be very cool to have. Must wait for it and cables and microphones to come, and must order cables, microphone etc. I have to rid myself of this stupid microphone for sure it's very very sucky. I also listened to NHB Radio. They reviewed an audio porn site I haven't actually went to it though India does not believe me, but during the show so many people went to the site that it was knocked offline. Very very sad people. Plans for tonight include not much of anything interesting. I believe Survivor's on tomorrow so nothing to watch much on tv but maybe a documentary or two. I also think I might have some Irish Cream coffee, alcohol Anna? And then I might, will, talk on msn later about random and senseless stuff. More later, tea is getting cold because I'm typing so fast and not coming up for a breath to drink. Have fun and don't do anything I wouldn't which would I'm surprise you how much I actually would do. Contemplate that.
