Top Ten Reasons Why Peter Dombrowski is going to hell:
10. Yesterday, he said he hated Aslan, who as we know, represents Jesus Christ.
9. He is Catholic, and as the lady at my church told him, he needs to be redeemed from the Catholic Church (a lady at my church actually told him the story of her father who was redeemed from the Catholic Church, so there is hope).
8. He does the Catholic guilt trip whenever he "invites" people to Holy Family.
7. He often leaves CollegeLife early.
6. He really didn't have appendicitis, it was just an excuse to be able to sleep on the bottom bunk and get sympathy.
5. He turns serious reflections on his time as a college student into comedy hour.
4. seriously lusts after older latina women (Martita-Honduras, Josefina-La Posada)
3. Didn't do anything when a lit candle was seen within an anonymous person's apartment (as you know, he is an RA)
2. When he is having a bad day, instead of turning to Jesus, he turns to Stevie Nicks.
1. We are now stuck with only a VCR and a TV, he is the only one that has tapes...here's a list of some of those titles: Rockadoodle, Pebble and a Penguin, an American Tale, Fivel Goes West, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, etc...if that doesn't eternally condemn you...I don't know what does
(all a joke)

I'll be honest, I finished the Harry Potter book at 4 in the morning on Saturday/Sunday...If that makes me a huge nerd so be it. Wow, talk about dark and depressing. Anyways, I'm at work now, trying to decide what I should do this afternoon.

How can you concentrate on anything when you have a Paul McCartney concert in T-7 hours and 34 minutes?? Also, recommendations for CTA to the United Center...Blue line to medical center stop or bus?

I can now die a happy man...The Paul McCartney concert, amazing. Here's some of the songs he sang:
Hey Jude, Let it Be, Yesterday (on the original guitar that he played on the Ed Sullivan show), Live and Let Die, Maybe I'm Amazed, For No One, Fixing A Hole (the last three he played by himself on the piano), I Will, Blackbird (These he played alone on the guitar), Helter Skelter, Please Please Me, Penny Lane, Jet, Band on the Run, Let me Roll it, I'll Get You, I've Got a Feeling, etc. He did two encores, sang over thirty songs, and opened with Magical Mystery Tour, does it get any better than that? No, it doesn't, to answer my rhetorical question.
Downsides of the concert-$35 t-shirts, his corporate sponsor was Lexus (my gag reflex skipped a beat at seeing that), but the positives far outweighed the negatives
Highlights-For No One, and Hey Jude would have to be my two favorites. His band was amazing as well. The fact that he only did three songs from his new album was good too. Anytime those songs would come on, it was as if everyone got up to go to the bathroom so that they could get back in time for a Beatles song.
Currently in Duluth, leaving for Chicago Monday morning...Good times driving alone through Wisconsin...

Why I paid $10.88 to do laundry:
1. First, I had to get twenty dollars out of the ATM, giving me a 2 dollar surcharge, because I had absolutely no money.
2. Next I had to break the 20 at the Viking Cafe buying a drink that was priced at $3.88, which ended up being made wrong, and thus tasted gross, so i threw it away, just to make change for laundry.
3. Next I took the dollar to the change machine, which proceeded to eat the dollar and give no quarters in return, with the no service light mocking me in all its fluorescent nastiness.
4. next, I had to break the five by buying a lemonade, price approximately $1.50 to also get change and some ones
5. Then, I went to Magnusen to get my original dollar that had been eaten back and also to get change for $2 to put in the washer and dryer.
6. Finally, I did laundry...having to dry both my loads twice at .50 a pop...So lets add it up
$2 surcharge on ATM+$3.88 on drink i didn't drink+$1.50 on lemonade+$1.50 for two loads in the washer+$2.00 for two loads done twice in the dryers= $10.88 for clean clothes

Here goes a big stream of consciousness. I don't get how anyone can believe everything that one political party stands for, and this has been a cognitive process for me. I thought of myself as pretty conservative, but any time I see a hummer or a huge house, it almost makes me nauseous. Why do people need huge monstrosities like that? I don't get it. I think Jesus meant what he said about the love of money being the root of all evil.
However, I also don't get Hollywood liberals who are always talking about social justice but live in huge mansions and fly private jets. For instance, Bono doesn't pay taxes on CD royalties (or some other part of his income) in Ireland. Also, why should I have to pay so much money to go see him in concert to hear him talk about social justice? It seems he should be telling people to spend their money on more worthwhile things than a concert.
So what is the alternative? A third party? We all know that the aliens that took over Bob Dole and Bill Clinton's bodies during the 1996 elections on the simpson's were right when they said, "Go ahead throw your vote away," in response to someone threatening to vote for a third party.

Random thoughts while running:
1. Why do people have big dogs in the city? Is there really a need for a husky in Chicago?
2. Why don't people pick up their dog's sh%#t when it's all over the path?
3. How come the majority of people in Legion Park are over 65?
4. Why do I run when its freezing outside?
5. Why do I run period?
6. If I fall and broke some bones, would it be better to: a) alert someone and have them call an ambulance b) run to Swedish c) jog back home and drive
7. Why can't 93.9 play good Christmas music, i.e. more sacred music instead of Gloria Estefan's Let it Snow?
8. What should I do when I get the mid-jog head/back itch and I have my hat and gloves on?
9. Finally, a math equation to sum up jogging today
10. midnight Burger King run + morning jog = dry heaves

Ahhh...this is when I'm proud to be from Duluth...this picture, for those of you who are wondering, is Duluth's esteemed mayor after he downed upwards of 7 drinks in an hour and decided that it was a good time to start driving towards Chicago...the guardrail that he struck in Wisconsin had other ideas apparently. You make us proud Herb!
In other news, its beginning to look a lot like Christmas!!

Yesterday at KidCare, my brother and me were in the gym playing a game similar to trench. Before we would start, we would say things like, "Whoever is wearing blue...go!" After a few games my brother yelled, "Whoever is wearing brown...go!" An African-American kid named Xavier began running, obviously not wearing brown. As he ran, he yelled proudly, "I am brown." Made my life.
