Anderson Cooper and the Daily Show

Current mood: crazy

Holy crapolie,
Anderson Cooper (one of the three people in the world I'd most like to meet) was just on the Daily Show with Jon Stewart (another of the three people in the world I'd most like to meet). It almost made my head explode. Anderson is so friggin cool, I don't think I'm all that hot for him, but he's more like an idol. An Icon, if I may, of what Journalism should be and someone you can idol, unlike those American Idols or those little girls that once wanted to be just like Britney Spears (boy did she hit the wall!) So, yeah it was awesome.

Side note on the Daily Show. Jon Stewart is also an idol of Journalism and one of the 7 gods. However! Though Steven Colbert is obviously supported by Jon Stewart and the Daily Show, how come when I watch the Colbert Report, I oddly feel somewhat shameful and dirty as if I had somehow been cheating on Jon Stewart. What if the ratings of the Daily Show go down because of the Colbert Report and somehow the CR replaces the Daily Show?! Oh how shameful of me to have supported such a thing! I deserve a stern scolding for that one. Sorry Jon Stewart, you are my one and only (and you too Anderson...)

Johnny Vegas

Current mood: bouncy

I'm going to Vegas!
I was once in Vegas for a layover and I was walking around and this payphone was ringing. So I look at it, people around it tell me to answer it.. I pick up the receiver and say the first thing that comes to my mind... "VEGAS" can I help you?
Who it was and the rest of the conversation are just not as entertaining as answering "Vegas" to a random ringing payphone while in Vegas. I am so clever it hurts.
So yes, I'm going to Vegas and I'm staying at the Venetian from July 6-9 and I'm so excited! I'm gonna see the Bellagio fountains and lose money and wander around casinos as big as the town I live in. Yeehah! It's so gonna kick ass.

An Inconvenient Truth

Current mood: determined

I just saw this movie last night and holy crap was it GREAT. Please, you all really have to go see this. Just at least watch the preview right now. It will make you want to see the movie. And then GO SEE THE MOVIE. And when you are done seeing the movie. DO SOMETHING.
When you see the movie, tell everyone you know to see the movie.
I'll keep harassing you until you do it. Everyone I know will get it as a xmas present, so you might as well go do it right now.
Go. Now.

To Whom It May Concern,

My name is August and I am a Travel Consultant with Cross Roads Travel American Express in Kenora, Ontario Canada. I have a client that would like to travel between the cities of Sydney, Tasmania, and New Zealand at her liesure and would like to know if there is a train or railway system that links these places.

If someone could email me back and let me know where I can find this information, that would be great as I have spent the better part of the day searching to no avail.

Thank you for your time,

August xxxxxxxxx

Current mood: okay

Create time for the things that you WANT to do, not the things that you HAVE to do.
