In all senses

My roomie and I were discussing today how angry the current system of society and civilization makes us. We both got pretty riled up about how rich people are so selfish about their stuff. They would prefer buying a 3000$ handbag to feeding the entire country of Zimbabwe for 6 months....
So we were feeling rather frustrated with the whole thing. And my roomie decided to go through her stuff and give all the stuff she wouldn't use to the MCC so that it could at least help someone. I contributed a bit to the box.
It felt good to be at least trying to be part of the solution instead of part of the problem. I know it doesn't make much of a difference except the knowledge of the attempt to help.
Then after the little rampage of discarding useless stuff, I was counting out the random change jar we have. It came out to like $33, which is pretty decent. Then it was suggested we buy one of those World Vision gifts with it. We actually went and asked a couple other res people for change to contribute. (Let it be known that Richard contributed and is a good person).
It came out to about $43. We're sending someone a piglet!

In other news:
The bunny chewed masses of holes through my very expensive favourite sweater that i got as a gift from a friend.
I have a new theory about time travel: it never gets invented. If it were, we would have people popping up now and all through history saying like "I'm from the future!". And we don't. So it clearly never gets invented. It's a good thing to know.

Also, today, for a change, was kinda quiet and restful. I had a nice nap in a very quiet, warm room, and a very quiet, sunny walk accross campus.
