Screwed…Literally By Screws!

February 11, 2009

Okay. I voted for Obama but his press conference on Monday caused the FOX to NOT air House last night. THIS IS NOT ACCEPTABLE! Interrupting my favorite TV is not the change I voted for Barack!

Well at least we had Heroes to fall back on and it has been freaking awesome since returning for the “Fugitives” stage of Season 3.

I enjoyed the first half of the season well enough I suppose but I haven’t been totally digging the show like I did in the first season. This half of season three appears to be coming back to that season one form.

Oh yeah! I went back down to Ann Arbor today for a follow-up on my surgery from last June. Turns out that atleast one of my screws broke (perhaps two). At this stage in the recovery process this is not such a good thing. I have to go back under the kinfe to get it repaired. Everything should be okay after this one. The doctor said with all the work they did the first time there was a good chance that my body would have a hard time healing all of it perfectly.

No Scrubs (Sorry TLC, Not About You)

January 21, 2009

House returned on Monday. All was right with the world.

Very good episode I thought. The show is in a bit of a holding pattern at the moment though and that’s fine, every episode is still quite good. Just waiting for the next big revelation to come out…..perhaps it will be next week. Speaking of next week…Heroes returns with their new chapter. I am looking forward to what that has in store.

Okay obviously I was an idiot on for some reason thought that Scrubs would be on, it was not. I watched the whole inaguration ceremony though and it was quite a spectacle.

The crowd was huge! Say what you will but I LOVED the spectacle and the grandeur of it. Obama’s speech was very good I even re-watched it online later with Jen (who missed it because of work). From a historical standpoint it was magical, and the thought that the last person to put their hands on the book he was sworn in on was Abraham Lincoln gave me chills. It was truly a great moment and I hope it is something we can build off of. The cynic in me says to not get to excited but I maintain high hopes for a new mindset in this country.

The Speech

January 20, 2009

My fellow citizens:

I stand here today humbled by the task before us, grateful for the trust you have bestowed, mindful of the sacrifices borne by our ancestors. I thank President Bush for his service to our nation, as well as the generosity and cooperation he has shown throughout this transition.

Forty-four Americans have now taken the presidential oath. The words have been spoken during rising tides of prosperity and the still waters of peace. Yet, every so often, the oath is taken amidst gathering clouds and raging storms. At these moments, America has carried on not simply because of the skill or vision of those in high office, but because We the People have remained faithful to the ideals of our forebearers, and true to our founding documents.

History Has Been Made. My World Has Been Changed.

November 5, 2008

Hello, Chicago.

If there is anyone out there who still doubts that America is a place where all things are possible, who still wonders if the dream of our founders is alive in our time, who still questions the power of our democracy, tonight is your answer.

It’s the answer told by lines that stretched around schools and churches in numbers this nation has never seen, by people who waited three hours and four hours, many for the first time in their lives, because they believed that this time must be different, that their voices could be that difference.

It’s the answer spoken by young and old, rich and poor, Democrat and Republican, black, white, Hispanic, Asian, Native American, gay, straight, disabled and not disabled. Americans who sent a message to the world that we have never been just a collection of individuals or a collection of red states and blue states.

We are, and always will be, the United States of America. Read the rest of this entry ?
