so today this article came up on my faceboooooooooooook:For the last four years, Capitol restaurants used eco-friendly plates, cups and utensils. Now, the Republicans in charge of the House have switched to plastic and foam.
NPR with Onion headlines. HAPPENING IN OUR WORLD TODAY!
in all seriousness, though, what am i supposed to do now? i have spent a decent sum of cash purchasing reusable grocery bags, recycled paper products, eco-friendly clothing and utensils, organic food, and general uh, 'greenery,' all the while thinking i was doing a good thing supporting fledgling businesses selling innovative, useful products for mass consumption. but apparently i was undermining the pillar of community we call the styrofoam and plastics industry instead!!! i was just a gullible hippie after all :T
anyway since this qualifies a serious policy business on Capitol Hill i think it's safe to say we're all fucked regardless of how you feel about hippies.
on an equally petty but less depressing note, i have slooooowly been inching my way through Resident Evil 5's achievement list with some success. i am now LOADED WITH GUNS and have one thing left on those stupid scavenger hunt-type achievements. next up: raising approximately a bajillion dollars by looting the homes of outrageous racist caricatures for treasure. why am i playing this game again?
okay it's pretty fun with all the shooting and the tentacle beasts and the COMPLETE GLOBAL SATURATION and the boulder punching and Sheva and Chris and all
prepare for the apocalypse
go to the Borders closing near the NH-MA border. i would be disappointed if there wasn't another Borders staying open about the same distance away from me. so basically: cheap(ish) books with none of the drawbacks! sort of.
no, i have no idea what this entry is for
