I have a really boring project at work that I should be focusing on, so naturally I’ve been spending an inordinate amount of time on the internet. If anyone here is tracking such things, I will surely be fired.
All of this internet surfing has led to some great discoveries, such as happyplace.com, which might be the most brilliant collection of ridiculousness ever gathered in one spot.
I’m also really up on my news and current events. Today was a bummer of a day in the news. Giulana Rancic was diagnosed with breast cancer. I do not know her, so I have no idea why this has been so upsetting to me. To top it off, some two-year old girl in China was run over by a car, then a second car. Not only did neither of the drivers of the cars even stop, at least 18 people walked by and ignored this little girl in the street.
Three people in Pennsylvania were found to have four mentally disabled adults chained up in their basement. Authorities think the alleged kidnappers did it for the victims’ social security money.
When a day of news is as depressing as today was, I cling to the hopeful fluff stories. This one really got me, not least of all because this guy could be the Indian, marathon-running version of my grandfather, with his “always be happy” mantra.
It might be the equivalent of sticking my head in the sand, but this last story is what I will try to remember about today. My grandfather and the Indian guy would want it that way.
