Good morning everyone. This is the first morning of November everybody - can you believe it? It's sad that the best month of the year is now in our rearview mirror, but somehow we'll have to cope... If you could only understand how much of a baseball fan I was growing up, and to have my birthday in the same month as the World Series (which I don't believe I've even mentioned in the blog)... Now my favorite band has the word 'October' in its name, and this year the final table of the World Series of Poker was even played in this great month. The month bids us farewell with Halloween... October is tough to beat my friends... When I was walking home from the library on Tuesday evening, and was very close to home, I saw this written on a wall: "If you're still free, start running away..." I wasn't even sure what type of context it was being used in, but it sounded like a great idea for some reason... :) Reading this happened moments after I passed a pair of people walking down the hill, and the girl was wearing a pink tanktop that said (as I cringe)... "San Marvelous" - now these people have SHIRTS, and all that I am fighting back with is this blog. Remember friends, it's San Marcos, America... ;) Okay, this is the point where the ramble turns from its sometimes cutesy self to a more serious topic. I am a person who generally has a lot of patience. I am not one of those dramatic people, always ranting and raving about something or arguing with people. I am the type of person who doesn't lose my temper often, but when I do, I make it count... I say this to lead into the fact that I see of lot of silly things on facebook. Facebook is a way to communicate, and there are a lot of silly people, so seeing silly things follows. Yesterday however, while reading through the facebook Halloween posts, I read something that resulted in me "unfriending" a person in less than a minute. This was the status, which was preceded by the culprit adding, "this is the best post that I've read today": "Well, it looks like New York is dressing up as New Orleans this year..." Oh, you're HYSTERICAL... How many people has the storm on the East Coast killed? How many people died in New Orleans during Katrina? How many people are currently displaced, or without food, power, heat, a way to communicate with their families? HILARIOUS... What amazed me to about the same degree is that TEN people had liked this status up to the post when I had read it.... AWESOME... It's really hard to understand people sometimes, ya know?... Thank you for letting me get that out in the open. It is going to be interesting when I see this person and they ask me why I unfriended them, that is for certain... I hope that you have a great day and I'll see you again tomorrow with my football predictions for this weekend.
