Good morning, all you shiny, happy people.
Well, okay, as I discovered yesterday, many of you are shiny angry people, but I blame myself for that, as I got you all riled up. (And then you, in turn, got me all riled up, because I find myself empathizing with almost all the things that have you totally pissed off -- especially those of you who a) hate microsoft word, b) find yourself caring more than everyone around you and thus wanting to put a fist through a wall when you lose or they suck, or c) wish you could live inside the West Wing. So as they say: been there, done that. Feel your pain. And it totally SUCKS.)
But today, the sun is shining (at least in new york), the birds are singing (at least I assume they are -- I'm still in bed), the air is balmy (so they say in the weather report, cf the bed thing), and I think we could all use a relaxing breather.
But first, a winner!
Congratulations to Anjulie P, who has mustered up a storm of righteous rage that has me riled up all over again, just thinking about it:
This week? Hrmmm... well, generally I'm pissed off by this guy at my work who always tries pushing his religion bull s**t on me. I mean, just because he's christian it doesn't mean he can hand out his "all knowing" advice to me. I really don't like going to work happy and having my opionions trodden on by a sexist, racist, religios (in a bad way), idiot. The kind of person who says "you should accpet god into your heart or you're going to hell" and "all gay people are sinners and will burn in hell" that just annoys me because I believe in God and He's done so much for my family I just don't like religion as I whole so I go my own way. I don't believe that being gay is wrong, I hate it when people s**t all over people just because they're gay. I won't bother you on his opinion of woman and other religions because this post could go on forever. Let's just say that apparently christianity is the ONLY way to go... which I think is just plain stupid.Email me about where I should send your prize!
The rest of you: Today is the day we take a deep breath and relax. (Sorry, am I starting to sound like a yoga instructor?)
Reminder of how this works:
Every day I'll ask a question. You answer it in the comments. I'll choose one comment at random. That commenter will get a free, signed Robin Wasserman book. Whichever one he/she wants. You have until the next day's sunrise to leave your comment. (So for question #5, you have until sunrise on Friday.) Check back in the morning to see if you won. And if you didn't, you'll have more chances - I'm giving away a book every day until Sunday, when the movie airs.
And I promise, this is an easy one.
Question #5 (in honor of Book #5, Sloth, which fyi, happens to be my favorite):
What's your favorite lazy way to waste a day? (Shameful guilty pleasures both allowed and encouraged.)
I have no shame about mine (although clearly, I should): Give me a free sunday with nothing to do and nowhere to go, and I can lie on the couch for HOURS -- like, you don't even want to know how many hours -- watching Degrassi: The Next Generation.
Your turn -- I won't judge you, either...
