Last night I finished The Audacity of Hope. Go read this book. NOW. Senator Obama has such a way with words. I have so much hope for our country after reading this book. I feel so blessed and lucky to be where I am. He puts things in perspective. He just seems very true and real and honest and down to earth. He needs to be in the White House in some capacity, whether it's President or Vice President and whether it's 2008 or 2012 or 2016. But it needs to happen.

If you have any interest in politics, or even in the welfare of our country, I suggest reading that book. Yes, it's not exactly a page turner. It's non-fiction and certain chapters were slow, at least for me they were. But then then were other chapters where I couldn't put the book down. So the book gets two thumbs up from me.

Now I'm on to J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone. Yes, Philosopher's Stone. I'm reading foreverseenstar's paperback copy and she has the UK version. I need a break from hardcovers for a while. Hopefully I can get through all six books before Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows comes out. That's my goal. If I can do that I'll definitely get back on track for my tweleve books a year. I hear they're quick reads, and The Philosopher's Stone looks particularly undaunting in paperback form (only 223 pages).

I'm not going to UMass tonight and I'm totally going to go to the gym. I have been a lazy fuck for a while now and it needs to stop. I have like mad DSP stuff I have been putting off. I don't even know why I'm writing this, I should be doing that DSP stuff. (Or you know actual work work because I am AT work and when I'm here that's what I'm paid to do...) But yeah, gotta get that done tonight. And go to the gym. So I can stop sucking. Yeah. Later, skaterz.

PS - This weather is fantastic and it's so warm and beautiful out. But this makes work doubly painful. A) It's crappy being stuck outside when you can see sunshine and beautifulness outside your window. B) IT'S A MILLION FUCKING DEGREES IN MY OFFICE. Our little corner of the office is like a sauna or a greenhouse or something, but even with our windows closed the heat just like gets in and raidiates. Gah. I'm melting.
