Saw Madagascar last night…Oh My Freakin’ GOD!!! That movie rockz my sockz…. A lemure….doing the Robot!? W00T!! Definatly another hit by dreamworks…they know what they’re doing 😉
We went out to dinner before we went to the movie, and had a rather difficult conversation. My friend and her mom both are disappointed and frustrated by people who donate to just one charity, like the brest cancer society, because it’s the ‘hip’ charity to donate to, because of all the advertising they do, etc (I should mention this friend is in advertising, so she does have the bias here) and seem to do nothing about any of the others. Ie, she would rather that people donate to say..the canadian cancer society, and have them figure out where the money is to be spent, perhaps based on the percentage of the population which is suffering from the disease…their reasoning was that there are so many mutated diseases out there that will never get any publicity, and therefore get very little money…but this also limits the amount…because if there’s only 1% of a population that suffers from a particular form of say cancer, they’re still only going to get 1% of the money…I have no problem with the donation to the general society, but I do have a problem with putting a value to a disease. It’s like saying ‘oh, i have brest cancer, you only have diabetes, my disease is worse than your’s is…’, I don’t think that’s the way to do things…She thinks even if you Have one of the diseases, that you shouldn’t donate more to it’s research…Somehow, no matter how much she feels this way now, I kinda think she’d feel different if she developed something like that…
I was wandering around on 1up earlier and I noticed the contests thingy…heh, I’m at 76 on the ‘most viewed’ page’…that’s kinda cool!
Other than that, definatly going through halo withdrawl…and it’s only been a day since I last played…Is there an AA type group for us?
I didn’t think so…catch ya’ll online!
