Went out late last night with Laura and sat at Old Chicago and just talked for a couple hours. It was really weird … zero pretense, just straight up how things are. No covering up of anything, no tender topics, just good conversation. It was good. I am glad I had the opportunity to do it again [for once]. Indeed, she is not a nut case, but she does wear too much pink. 😉
Went to church with my mom this morning. That was lame. I also realized that she either A) has problems or B) does not talk to people at all. It’s a 25 minute drive to where we went, and she yammered on and on the whole way, and I replied with maybe 6 words the whole way. Four of which were in one sentence. So she just talked and talked and talked, and I wanted to ask her if she ever shuts up, but I didn’t. Too nice to do that to my mom. Anywho, church was blah, and then on the way home, we heard the news on the radio —
CNN — U.S. attacks Afghanistan. The United States and Britain launched attacks on at least three cities in Afghanistan on Sunday in retaliation for the terrorist attacks on New York and Washington on September 11, President Bush said. I am glad that action is being taken, and am relieved in the knowledge that it is with the utmost confidence that the United Nations strikes at the Taliban.
