1. When the government shut down last month, pretty much every news report I saw said, "Oh no! This could put us back in the recession!". And my reaction was, "But we never left the recession!".
Seriously, it bugs me when news reports (and President Obama) pretend that the economic recession is over now. I'm sorry, but the economy has not been fixed. It is still near-impossible for people to get jobs. Things might be better than they were in 2008, but they are nowhere near as good as they were in 2007.
2. I don't understand why people say Christopher Columbus proved the world was round, not flat. Everyone already knew that, thousands of years before Christopher Columbus was born. Aristotle talks about it in his work on astronomy, unless I'm mistaken.
3. I'm in a choir that's doing a special concert for Christmas, and I'm not feeling good about it. I know I'm doing something wrong, but I don't know what it is. Choir practice last night caused the back of my neck to start pounding like crazy, and I was feeling dangerously light-headed. You know, the kind of light headed where it feels like the area behind/above your eyeballs has been scooped out. At a few points, I felt the need to pant in order to get air back into my body.
On a positive note, I didn't get a sore throat like I have at other practices! Still, I wonder what I did wrong. Maybe I drink too much vodka before choir practice.
