that said, i think i just pinpointed why i have my P.G. county pride while talking to todd:
SnideGrrl (1:18:05 AM): anyways, i think the attitude of "move somewhere where things are better because i can afford to instead of staying put and fixing things where i am" is one that contributes to things like the PG school system being shittier than all the other school systems.
if i ever do buy a house, i hope i buy one in P.G. and i hope i get involved in the community. warning: any comments from the peanut gallery will be met with scorn, because that's all i've got holding me up right now. and then when i'm out of scorn, i'll fall over, and won't you feel bad that you caused that. oh wait, no you won't, because i will just have been a caustic bitch.
Addendum: One good thing that I did see on TV was Burden of Dreams, a documentary about the making of Werner Herzog's film Fitzcarraldo. It was fascinating and I believe necrocannibal should watch for it, specifically Herzog's speech towards the end about the jungle. I couldn't watch it without thinking of Hearts of Darkness though.
