Random Tuesday Thoughts


Hurray for Random Tuesday, a super cool place created by Keely @ "The Un Mom", head over and check out the coolest graphics in the bloggisphere!


In my job, I have a giant pile of work. Within this pile, I must seek out the most urgent issues requiring my attention and devote myself to these items.

If I were a congressman I'd do the same. So when I hear of Republican Rep. Doug Lamborn proposing a bill to cut funding to NPR I have to scratch my head and wonder WHY is he prioritizing this bit of work??? In the three weeks I've been to Asia GAS has risen $0.25+ per gallon! This is particularly galling considering the root of the problem is evil speculators on Wall Street. Where is the regulation congressman??? The war with Libia is only a few weeks old, oil is already processed and sitting in containers ready to be distributed and yet evil speculators have the power to jack the price up on oil already bought and processed just waiting to be distributed to gas stations??? Priorities government!


In less outrageous news, a study has been done on Birds VS Cats! This article points out the helpful statistic that cats are the number 1 killer of birds!!! I'm shocked. I thought cats just laid around and ate dry cat food. The American Bird Conservancy estimates 1/2 a million birds are killed by cats every year. I'm still Team Cat.

The NPR thing is completely puzzling. I just don't get it.
And don't hate me but I don't like cats OR birds. Ew.

The NPR thing is strange. Why that of all things?

The NPR thing really is a head scratcher...

And I'm team cat, too - though I do feed the birds. ;)

I like cats specifically for that reason. Seriously, is it shocking that they kill birds? THEY'RE CATS.
