Deal of the Week

I think I may be the only person in America who watched Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip when it was on TV a couple of seasons ago. I don't get how people didn't love that show! It was a favorite, and I was seriously bummed when it got the ax. Once they put the series on DVD I decided I needed to make it mine. Only one problem...Amazon was selling the DVD for $45 bucks! To me, that's a lot to ask for a show that didn't even get a full season. But I loved the show, so I put it on my wishlist hoping maybe I'd get it for Christmas. Imagine my surprise when I go on Amazon the other day and the price of the DVD set has plunged to $12.99! I ordered it immediately. Which was good, because no less than 24 hours later the price went back up to $45. So I got a great deal, and now I'm watching Danny and Matt exchange witty banter with the Studio 60 gang....I LOVE good TV!

Polarized America

It's amazing to me how people have had such different reactions to the election of Barack Obama. I have a really good friend who is seriously worried about where we're headed as a country. It's just amazing to me that I can be filled with so much optimism and hope about where we're headed, and my friend can be filled with the complete our nation that polarized? I guess the answer is yes. I was in the car today, and I flipped past Rush Limbaugh on talk radio. I decided to stop and listen to what he was saying. I was a little perplexed. He was talking about the Democratic majority in congress, and how the Republicans won't be able to stop Barack Obama. As if that should be their only goal in life. Not to worry about working together to pass legislation that will have an effect on the country, but to make sure they can stop Obama from doing what he wants to do. It just made me sad.

I wonder, can bipartisanship really work anymore?

I really want to believe that it can.

Quick Update...

First of all I hope you VOTED today! It's a little after 3:00 California time, and the East coast polls will be closing soon. I'm an Obama supporter, and even though the polls say he's up, I'm still nervous! I won't be excited until it's official.

I had my first day of training at Disneyland, and I found out that I'll be working the Indiana Jones Adventure. YEAH! No Tiki room for me! I also found out something really cool. I live really close to the the Disneyland employee parking lot. They basically shuttle employees to and from the park. Since I live nearby I decided I would ride my bike to and from work. I found out yesterday that Disney is basically going to pay me to ride my bike to work! Can you believe that?! I'll get so many points each day I ride my bike to work, and those points translate into dollars. It equals out to $2.00 per day. It's like free gas money!
