I've noticed that I update MySpace more than LiveJournal - lo siento.

I had surgery last Tuesday to have my gallbladder removed. Yes - I had it done in London! Stayed a night in the hospital and been resting and trying to strengthen myself ever since. I never realized how much surgery takes out of you. It's hard to walk up one flight of stairs to my flat, walk to the end of the street to buy groceries, even just to sit upright for more than two hours. It sucks. I should be traveling to Spain, Prague, Croatia... anywhere these last few weeks of my abroad program!! Oh well.

On a brighter note - the pain of surgery is FAR LESS than the pain of gallstones!!!

Everyone has been really wonderful - especially my flatmates! I don't think they understand my hard-headed tendencies sometimes - but it's okay. They always just want to help.

I'm having my gallbladder removed either Tuesday or next Friday.. depends on when mom can fly into London.

She gave me strict orders (if you know my mom, you'll laugh).. "young lady.. you will not have surgery without me there.. and that is final.. now lets find a nice place to stay"

I do miss that lady.. and it will be great to see her - just wish it was under better circumstances.

Industrial Hemp is a crop that can produce....

Paper, Carpeting,

Cement, Caulk,

Plastic, Stucco, & Mortar,

Fuel, Fiberglass substitute,

Food, Rope,

Apparel, Oil paints,

Diapers, Varnishes,

Shoes, Solvents,

Fine textiles, Cardboard,

Soap Break/Clutch lining,

Cosmetics, Chainsaw lubricants,

WITH LITTLE TO NO POLLUTION!



Right now there is a chance to bring Industrial Hemp back to America (it was used as an essential staple crop until it was banned 70 years ago)It can basically do everything EXCEPT get you high, and that's why it has no reason to be illegal. It's like banning poppy seeds because of their relation to Opium. Learn more about this crop, and the Industrial Hemp Farmers Act of 2005.

The most important thing that anyone can do right now is contact your Representative! Correspondence from just ten 10 constituents (people) can draw the Representative's attention. You should receive a letter in reply from your Representative. Visit www.house.gov/writerep/ and ask your Representative to cosponsor HR3037!

Just go to house.gov/writerep/ and let your representative know that you support HR3037 (the Industrial Hemp Farming Act of 2005) and you want him/her to co-sponsor it immediately!

Good places for information on industiral hemp (in case you don't know what the hell i'm talking about) is http://andykerr.net/IndustrialHemp/IndustHempPT.htm

I havent been homesick at all since Ive been here, but at this moment home is the only place I really want to be. I love having alone time - but right now it would be nice to have someone around. But there isnt anyone in this entire center. I dont even know what to do with myself. I knew it was coming and I thought I was prepared, but I guess I wasnt.

We missed our flight to Amsterdam Thursday night, by 10 minutes. It took us 2 hours to get to Luton airport, but we have that shit down now! We came back to our flat before we had to be back at the airport at 5 in the morning. Chris and Matt got wasted and didnt sleep and I got about 2 hours of shut-eye.

After doing the whole airport thing and taking the train into the city, it was about 9am in Amsterdam. Do you think we could resist a coffee shop before even setting foot in our hotel room? Not so much. Needless to say we drug our bags into the coffee shop and proceeded to buy the most amazing marijuana!!

Thats right, the name of the coffee shop was The Pink Floyd. We smoked some New York Diesel (as seen in the photo above).

We went to a few museums, including the Van Gogh. I've been before - but it was still amazing.

Honestly all I can say is I stayed pretty fucked up all weekend, tried a fantastic assortment of pot and hash, drank pot hot chocolate and tea, ate muffins (aka "space cakes"), and just had a damn good time!! I'm trying to find a cheap flight back before the semester is over and I'm going after school gets out with my mom. Yay for Amsterdam!

I'm feeling much better, but I'm sad I didn't get to go to Atlanta with Jakki.

Hadas has been in town - which was awesome. I miss her so much! Jakki, Hadas and I called Ben in London. I miss him a lot too! btw - I don't know if I said this already but I AM GOING TO LONDON. *excited*

The first time I've been out in over a week was last night for the comedy show. Still wasn't feeling so hot - but 3 pain killers in one day helps a lot.

Brian called me and has a charter tomorrow, which also happens to be the day Jade gets back. So I am picking Jade up and driving him down the Steinhatchee. Don't let my bitching fool you, I love that town. They owe me, but I love them.. and it will be nice to see them tomorrow. I miss Brian a lot.

Solar Technology

Hyper-Powerful and Inexpensive Solar



"A company in California, Pyron Solar, is making the bold claim that its solar power system can compete head-to-head with conventional power plants. The system, developed with Boeing-Spectrolab, is very compact, and uses short-focal-length lenses to concentrate direct sunlight to photovoltaic cells. The company says these cells produce 800 times more electricity than conventional non-concentrating cells of the same size. Their first prototype, which is 23 feet in diameter and 16 inches high, produces an astonishing 6.5 KW of electricity, enough to power six homes.



The Pyron Generator costs around $18,000 (with California rebates of around $2.30 per watt, or just over $2,000) compared with around $32,500 for flat-panel systems. Basically, it has a cost of less than $3 per watt, compared the the average solar system cost of $5 per watt, which translates to a 40% decrease in the cost of solar power.

Pyron Solar has future plans for large-scale production, with 30 kW and 50 kW units planned. With the size, price, and efficiency of the system, it has been calculated that, with a piece of land measuring 50 square miles in the desert southwest, the Pyron system could provide all the electricity consumed by the entire US."

Senate panel OKs oil drilling in Arctic refuge

By Tom Doggett 

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Senate Energy Committee voted on Wednesday to open Alaska's Arctic National Wildlife Refuge to oil drilling as part of a broad budget bill to fund the federal government.

Tapping the refuge's billions of barrels of crude oil is a key part of the Bush administration's national energy plan to boost domestic production. Environmental groups and many Democrats oppose drilling, saying that instead of threatening the habitat of wildlife in ANWR, lawmakers should look at ways to cut oil consumption with more fuel-efficient vehicle standards.

The refuge, which is about the size of South Carolina, sprawls across more than 19 million acres in northeastern Alaska. It is home to polar bears, musk oxen, caribou and migratory birds.

The energy panel approved the ANWR drilling provision, 13-9. All Republicans on the committee voted in favor of the plan except Gordon Smith of Oregon (CORRECTION), plus Democrats Mary Landrieu of Louisiana and Daniel Akaka of Hawaii.

"Opening ANWR is sound public policy that would serve the country well many years into the future," said Pete Domenici, the Republican chairman of the committee. The oil produced from the wildlife refuge "would provide some cushion" for U.S. supplies, he said.

The legislative proposal will be folded into a much bigger budget bill to fund the federal government, which the Senate Budget Committee is scheduled to vote on next week and the full U.S. Senate the following week.

Republican leaders decided to attach the Alaska drilling plan to budget legislation because under Senate rules the giant spending bill cannot be filibustered. They argue the drilling language can be in the budget bill because it will raise an estimated $2.4 billion in leasing revenue.

However, Democrats said they plan to object to the drilling language when the bill goes to the Senate floor, claiming the drilling plan sets policy more than raises revenue. Democrat Byron Dorgan of North Dakota said the Republicans were "short-circuiting the process" by attaching ANWR to a budget bill.

The Senate Energy Committee also rejected a proposal from Democrat Ron Wyden of Oregon that would have prevented Alaskan oil production from being exported to China or other foreign markets.

Under the drilling plan, ANWR's 1.5 million-acre coastal plain would be opened for energy exploration. As much as 10.4 billion barrels of crude could be recovered from the refuge's coastal plain, according to government estimates.

The Interior Department would be required to hold two lease sales before October 1, 2010, to lease tracts in ANWR to oil companies.

Opening ANWR would have no impact on replacing the shutdown oil production in the Gulf of Mexico caused by hurricanes Katrina and Rita.

If Congress approved drilling in the Arctic refuge this year, oil would not begin flowing until about 2015, according to the Energy Information Administration.

A coalition of moderate Republicans and most Democrats in the Senate in the past successfully blocked attempts to add ANWR drilling to energy legislation. However, the House of Representatives has repeatedly voted in favor of opening the Alaskan refuge to energy development.

If you have never heard the song Eve Of Destruction by Barry McGuire, download it - great song!

The eastern world, it is explodin’.
Violence flarin’, bullets loadin’
You’re old enough to kill, but not for votin’
You don’t believe in war, but what’s that gun you’re totin’
And even the Jordan River has bodies floatin’

But you tell me
Over and over and over again, my friend
Ah, you don’t believe
We’re on the eve
of destruction.

Don’t you understand what I’m tryin’ to say
Can’t you feel the fears I’m feelin’ today?
If the button is pushed, there’s no runnin’ away
There’ll be no one to save, with the world in a grave
Take a look around you boy
It’s bound to scare you boy

And you tell me
Over and over and over again, my friend
Ah, you don’t believe
We’re on the eve
of destruction.

Yeah, my blood’s so mad feels like coagulatin’
I’m sitting here just contemplatin’
I can’t twist  the truth, it knows no regulation.
Handful of senators don’t pass legislation
And marches alone can’t bring integration
When human respect is disintegratin’
This whole crazy world is just too frustratin’

And you tell me
Over and over and over again, my friend
Ah, you don’t believe
We’re on the eve
of destruction.

Think of all the hate there is in Red China
Then take a look around to Selma, Alabama
You may leave here for 4 days in space
But when you return, it’s the same old place
The poundin’ of the drums, the pride and disgrace
You can bury your dead, but don’t leave a trace
Hate your next-door neighbor, but don’t forget to say grace
And… tell me over and over and over and over again, my friend
You don’t believe
We’re on the eve
Of destruction
Mm, no no, you don’t believe
We’re on the eve
of destruction.

Steinhatchee = orgasm.

Life has been kind of crazy lately - so being there, even for only a night, made life a little better.

Little John took us out on the boat and we did some water testing. I got to see Jade - he was back to acting normal. I saw Mr Lynn, Debbie, Ray, Mandy, Jim.. and some others.. and Brian, of course. He knew I was in town within 4 hours of me being in town and came to find me - how fucking awesome is that? I already miss him. He wants me to come down more - but I don't know if thats going to happen. But I do love that little town - and most of the people.

::sighs::

It feels good to be happy (dur, right?)

Goin to Steinhatchee to do some water testing. Kristy is going down for the day. Jakki is coming for sure and Vanessa might come. Yay. I love Jakki and Vanessa.

We can't get the house because it sold and the closing is today, haha. But the guy who bought it is going to work out a deal with mom, so we can use it before he builds condos (eww he's not one of my favorite people).

So I woke up at 7:30... don't ask, cuz I have no idea.

Im looking forward to driving with the windows down.

I got sooo drunk last night.

I had been on campus all day and I went to see commissioner Gillum speak about why hes voting YES to the coal plant. He really just made me angry. I didn't feel like he adequately answered any of the important questions. I'm so sad - he usually votes for the environment. But YES to coal?!?! WTF. This is gonna be a good fight - and we're gonna stop the damn coal plant!!

Comedy show was amazing as usual - and I needed it after listening to that asshole for over an hour.


I have such a bad hangover. Oh well, time to get to campus.


VOTE NO TO COAL!!!!!!!!

It's 8am!! I took the best shower EVER!! and I made myself a smoothie! yum.

Jakki and I have a meeting with Dr Stallins at 10:30. We are sooo excited about the water quality testing program we're going to start - more on that later.

Yesterday was such a GREAT Sunday. Got to Jakki's and made smoothies, Jakki made pancakes and Vanessa made like hashbrowns with kale - soooo good! Then we drank Mimosas, hehe.

After all that exciting business, we settled at All Saints. I read all day - it was so nice. I think I spent about 8 hours total at All Saints yesterday.

What I hear..: FSU Football
We went to our weekly garage sales this morning. Bought some books...
but the REAL story is..

I bought The Illustrated Leaves of Grass by Walt Whitman. When we got home I randomly opened the book to a RANDOM page in the middle.

This is what I found.....

Can you believe it? MY MOM IS IN A WALT WHITMAN BOOK... and sure, there is a chance that it isn't my mom - but it's damn sure her twin!

I am so amused. I can't wait to show her and get confirmation that it's her.

Water
Your element is Water: Understanding, intelligent,
quiet and calm. You know who you are and no one
can change that. Usually quiet but only because
your listening, don't let anyone think you
haven't got an opinion! Your not quiet because
your shy or sad, your usually quiet because you
are thinking. Your answers are well planned and
helpful so people generally seek your advice.
Your the perfect balance between solitary and
outgoing. But sometimes you need a little time
to yourself to sort out your emotions and
figure things out. You understand the phrase
'sticks and stone' and rarely let things get to
you. What's that important for you to have to
get so upset over? You know what you want out
of life but are simply taking your time and
enjoying things. To you your life is fine as it
is, you can always change things later if your
not happy.
