I stopped on my way home from kung fu and picked up some bananas and white nectarines, which are my new favorite fruit ever. And I also bought a copy of Thor on DVD. So I'm excited about popping it into the player and watching it while I make flash cards for some studying I need to do.

But I'm also kind of bummed out, since there are a bunch of special features I'm missing out on because I don't have a Blue Ray player. I'm not going to rail about it like it's some sort of injustice, I'm just sad about it. I wish I could afford Blue Ray. But I can barely justify buying this DVD, let alone a relatively expensive piece of electronics.

Sometimes being a grad student sucks. This is definitely one of those times.

Then I got home and found an e-mail waiting in my in-box from Amnesty International, about Troy Davis. Which I guess puts my little DVD whine-fest in perspective. I feel like such a douchebag. And I feel ashamed.

I'm not going to turn this into a political rant, no matter how much I want to. There's more than enough of that out on the internet, and probably better written than anything I could manage right now. So I'm going to go upstairs, wash all the sweat off, and then watch Thor. Because what the hell else am I going to do?

So,now that Sin and I have the PS3 my blu-ray player is feeling all lonely and neglected. Would you like to adopt it?

I would love to give your Blue Ray player a good home. :D We'll have to talk adoption terms. ^_^

I'm off on Saturday if you want to pick it up. I have an eye appointment at 10am but should be free around 12ish. No serious terms needed. Give the blu-ray player a useful existence and it's yours.

Awesome! I have a study session for kung fu from 11-1, so I will swing by after. :)

I keep telling myself that there isn't and wasn't anything I can do about it this time. That it has to be enough to keep watch and do everything I can to ensure it never happens again.

I just feel like it's pretty much guaranteed to happen again. If nothing else, all I can think about is the cheering about the number of executions under Rick Perry.
