I am not Liz Lemon

During the summer between my sophomore and junior year of high school, I found some old sheets cut up into squares at my grammy's house. My aunt had initially planned something for them and never put it together. I started sewing the squares together that summer, and now, four summers later, I finished the quilt. It's not perfect by any means, but it's done. Unlike Liz Lemon, I finish the quilts that I start in the summer. Even if it is four summers later.

are you part of the 2% of Americans playing sports right now?

This is a fascinating graph showing how people spend their time. At approximately 2:44 PM, I, a white female between the ages of 15 and 24 seeking a bachelor's degree and employed, was engaged in computer use. I think it's striking how little time the unemployed spend volunteering and that whites and hispanics eat at traditional meal times, whereas blacks tend not to. I'm not sure what to take from that, but it sure is interesting =)

is the space pope reptillian?

I've recently discovered Futurama. A solid show that ended before it could be dragged into the ground like The Simpsons (even though there are going to be 26 new episodes sometime soon). It's full of witty one-liners and thoroughly shallow (but highly entertaining) characters. Who could ever tire of Bender's thieving ways?
