Spring rains were my companion today. They flushed away tons of unwanted pollen and refreshed the earth, which no doubt needed it. I watched it all happen from my window while I worked for ‘the man’ on this wonderful day. Fortunately ‘the man’ didn’t have much for me to do today, so I cleaned my desk instead. It would have been perfect except that I spent nearly my entire bonus pay for today on a new battery for my laptop.
I want to be all zen about it, but it really pissed me off. Technology seems to hate me lately. Cars, computers, you name it. If it has to be powered to operate then it’s probably not going to work for me. But that’s not what I’m thinking about today. I’ve been able to put that aside because today I was distracted. Today, I watched MTV. I know. Let’s savor that for moment. Yeah, I know. WTF. Today, MTV had a marathon of its show, “16 and Pregnant”. It was probably the best thing I have ever seen on TV, ok it’s the best thing I’ve seen on MTV since they stopped showing Lip Service. Every school should just watch this as part of any sex education curriculum. My parents kept me out of trouble by just scaring the crap out of me. To this day I’m still petrified of getting pregnant and that will probably never change. And then I flip the channel and realize there is a lot of crap out there. Who would want to raise a kid in this world? Is it even worth while?
