Pandemic Panic

http://www.cnn.com/2009/HEALTH/04/30/ep.swine.flu.questions.answers/index.html

What is the cause for concern really? Its the h1n1 virus- so it can be spread from person to person, but it's just the FLU people.

I will tell you the one thing that DOES bother me- the people going around saying oh its the pig flu from Mexico- dirty Mexicans!

How ignorant. I know I'm not going to change the world posting about it, but come on. This didn't start from some "dirty Mexican" rooting around with the pigs. This all stemmed from medical technology. Our need to cure everything is causing these virus's to adapt and mutate. We are slowly creating the big bad uber ultra virus, and one of these days we will finally wipe out our own species.

The other question that was raised is if it could have been bioterrorism... boy, I know if I was looking to clear a continent of stupid American's I would definitely pick swine flu. That'll teach em. Forget the plague, or anthrax. I happen to know that America is so wimpy a stupid cold will kill them.

Come ON people!! Common sense!! I have a little more faith in all of you than that!

Anyway- moving on...

My sister is getting married. That's right, you heard what I said! May 22nd of next year. I am the matron of dishonor. :)

So, why don't I act in my typical Kristi fashion and get right down to the gritty of it.

My sister is one of the most selfish people I know. To make a marriage work (in my opinion) you have to posess the ability to think of this other person BEFORE you think of yourself... I don't think she has spent one day on this planet thinking of someone before she thinks of herself. So I am devising this sort of wedding bootcamp... I am going to make a list of things I want her to do with me BEFORE I will agree to stand in her wedding. I am looking for ANY suggestions surrounding this, so far this is what I have in mind:

Volunteering at a soup kitchen, volunteering at a childrens hospital. Doing a food drive, doing a stuffed animal drive.

Basically anything selfless and life altering.

  5. I have no idea what happened, but apparently you fell off of my Google reader somehow. I am completley confused. Anyway, I obviously have a lot to catch up but I just wanted to tell you that 05/22 is the day of doom. I got married that day and well, that obviously didn't turn out so well. SOunds to me like the deck is heavily stacked against her.
