    i Still use hotmail v-v

  • I’ve also been trying to avoid the Olympics results until primetime, but it’sfruitless. Having so much coverage makes watching the events much less exciting because you already know who won or lost. *sad face*

    I must say, I love my life, but stories like the Murch case, Aurora, etc. sure make me hate this world. Sigh.

    Um. I have hotmail, but I don’t use it because of the high spam-jacking rate. So I’ve been keeping it open, but deleting my address book and change my password every 90 days to keep the hackers on their toes. Don’t know what has been stopping me from canceling the account. Guess I won’t have to worry about that going forward.

    I have a love/hate relationship with how Obama has ripped the curtains off of the idea of minority candidates. I’m not familiar with Castro, but I hope people don’t start treating politics like some side show, throwing out candidate names like Mardi Gras beads. It irks me to see the likes of Cain, Palin, Rev. Jackson, etc on a ballot as if being minorities is all it takes to get this country in shape. So I hope Castro isn’t the hispanic version. I’ll stay tuned. I’ll read the article a little later.
