arthoniel: (Star Trek- Bondage Fun Time)

I could've made an LJ post about how awesome I am that I read all seven Harry Potter books in roughly as many days.

I could've made an LJ post along the same vein about how I found so much Harry Potter-related stuff in my room from when I was younger, and how I realized that I was, in fact, a Good Kid. Because, without even realizing it, I was a total nerd back then too.

I could've made an LJ post about how super special mega foxy awesome hot Robert Downey Jr. is, and how there really is just no look he can't pull off. I might've then mentioned how I finally saw Tropic Thunder the other day, and fansqueed over blond, blue-eyed RDJ with an Australian accent.

I could've made an LJ post about how we're getting Snowpocalypse Part II up here in New York, and how I've never known it to snow so much in one winter. Or, if I have, it was a while ago, and I don't really remember it. While discussing that, I might've mentioned that I'm glad that the NYC snow plows are actually doing their job this time around... because the plows are constantly scraping the street beneath my window. But at least this time around people won't die because cars can't get places due to snow.

I could've made an LJ post about the tragedy in Arizona this weekend and how, when I first heard about it, I ran to the internet, trying to find out what's going on... and when I saw the details, before I the sadness, shock, and horror could set in, my first thought was "Oh thank god, it's not too many people. It's not like a place got bombed again." and how that thought then disturbed the crap out of me.

I could've made an LJ post that would've been similar to the previous one, but with a different tone as it discussed Jon Stewart's response to what happened in Arizona, and how he's really an incredible writer and speaker at times.

I could've made an LJ post about the flooding in Brisbane, and how scary somelthing like that is, and how I hope everyone's okay.

I could've posted about any of those things. But I didn't. Why not?

Because THIS has taken over my brain. And it is amazing. If you are a guy, or have ever heard guys going off about how difficult it is to remove women's clothing, or are a girl, then it is worth a look. It won't take but 5 seconds of your time! And it'll make your day that much brighter~

September 11th, 2001.

Don't ever forget.

That does not mean lay a blood libel on anyone. That does not mean talk about insensitivity about an Islamic cultural center existing. That certainly does not mean burn Qurans- ever.

But it does mean that we can't ever forget what happened on this day, nine years ago.

So I'm in class today. First period- Criminal Law and Forensics. And, because of what day it is, at 8:45 we had a moment of silence in the school. And afterwards, since we're pretty much done with the lesson anyway, our teacher comments on how September 11th (of the 2001 variety) is becoming more of a lesson plan then a memory.

It's not that I disapprove exactly- I mean, if you were four when the towers went down, obviously you're not going to remember, so it won't be as powerful a memory as it is for others who do remember the day... and they need to learn about it too. The same thing, I assume, happened with the attack on Pearl Harbor... it's just wierd to me. Something that affected me so much (and I didn't even know anyone that died in the attacks)- one of the most horrible, most vivid memories of my childhood is just a lesson to someone maybe just two years younger than me.

My... "generation" if you will, my birth year, is probably the youngest to remember 9/11 properly. Even though on September 11th, every year, it's something I can't unsee. I don't even know what to say.
