Being in D.C. you have access to some pretty interesting professors, especially at GWU. One of my professors was on a taskforce that had to determine what would be the most likely dangerous scenario - and his team determined pandemic. He's talked at length about it and how it will logistically affect our country and the types of choices people will have to make - who will have access to medication, etc., how schools will be turned into triage centers, and those too sick will be ignored while they try and save individuals likely to survive. Ice skating rinks will be used as morgues because people will not be allowed to bury their dead. Then he apologizes for being an alarmist and tells us he stockpiles pop tarts, wine, water, gasoline, and liquor (the last one is to barter). He said people will want to close the borders, but that will do nothing, because there is nothing you can do. It will just help people feel like they are doing something.

Today the Centers For Disease Control declared a national public health emergency in reaction to an outbreak of swine flu in five states.

U.S. Rep. Eric Massa (D-NY) wants the border with Mexico closed.

wtf does a new yorker know about the Mexican border??

In mostly unrelated news, According to a Research 2000 poll (http://www.dailykos.com/statepoll/2009/4/22/TX/288) paid for by Daily Kos, more than one-third of Texans favor secession, with half of the state's polled Republicans saying that the state would be better off as an independent nation.

OKay, I told myself I wouldn't do this..
But I f'ING LOVE BEYONCE! Her music is *SO* good. I downloaded her new album last night and can't stop listening to Disappear. In fact, I downloaded ten albums last night (good ones! Britney! James Morrison! Girls Aloud! Fleetwood Mac!) and cannot separate myself from Beyonce.

Streisand, also a singer/actress, started with a sensational bang, fizzled a bit, and maintained quality of artistic output for a decades before gracefully fading into the wings of the stage. Beyonce just keeps getting better. It is a dissimilar progression, and Beyonce has nothing on Babs in terms of musical or acting talent, but she is the closet anyone has ever come in recent history. Fuck those haters who are making Miley Cyrus and Jessica Simpson comparisons to Babs, it's just plain irreverent.

I feel like I should have vlogged this. Maybe I will tomorrow.
Current Music: Beyonce, still

I got a phone voicemail from an estranged friend out of the blue today while on the metro. She's doing a documentary on drag queens in the valley, so naturally, she called me for introductions. Love it!

I made this for class tonight. My professor liked it and wants to show it to Dr. Harvey, who I reference in the video (and will get to meet on Tuesday!). I used a Truman Capote, Dazzle, story to explain theories of organizational change.

(there are some errors my roommate has since found, so I'm gonna have to edit them out before I turn over a final copy to Dr. Harvey)

my dad just emailed me his itinerary for his visit. didn't consult me or anything. he's gonna be here from monday-monday. That is eight days. I don't know what I'm gonna do with him for eight days!!!!!!

But it is very sweet that he is gonna visit me. He never visited me in undergrad and did that thing where he takes you and your roommates out to dinner. And the last time I saw him was in February and I won't seem him again until August probably. And he is my absolute hero and I love him dearly.

Okay, yes, I am excited now to see him. Just a little shocked at first.
