1. How far do you currently live from the place where you were born?

1,698 miles according to google maps

2. How many times have you moved in your life?

24. I think. I feel like I'm forgetting at least one.

3. What was the shortest move, in terms of distance? The longest?

Shortest is however long to the trailer next door. The longest would be 2,943 miles, coast to coast.

4. Have you ever moved for school? Love? Work?

No, yes, yes.

5. Did your family ever move when you were a child? How did that make you feel?

Repeatedly. I can't answer the last part, because NOT moving is the abnormal state, for me.

If you didn't start a Live Journal for the sole purpose of being an attention whore and having everyone pity you because of your sob stories, put this in your LJ.

Good thing there's the and in that. Since sure, attention whore absolutely! But not so much with sob stories.
From [livejournal.com profile] anacrusis (original author) -- let's meme this to hell & back and see if the blogosphere makes it happen.


Comedy Central. Your time is now.

We have no debates. Our debates are a sham. What's more, we have no prospect of their being a presidential debate at any point during this (and probably future) elections.

So here's what you need to do. Find a smart, eloquent, possibly slightly hip, guy from each party who supports their candidate and can say why that is. Put em in a room with John Stewart MCing, with a panel of real journalists, the kind who won't be allowed to ask question in the debate. Throw hardballs. Let em call each other names. End it in a steel cage match for all i care.

But make it a publicized, meaningful debate, where people are smart enough to say "no, that's bullshit, how about a real answer?" right there on TV.

It'd probably be a rating flop, but I hold out a tiny sliver of hope. It's something I'd watch.

And What scares me most is that I can trust no other network but Comedy Central to do such a thing.


If you agree with this, put it in your journal. Or your webpage. Or...wherever.


create your own visited states map
or write about it on the open travel guide
I have a pretty good handle on the middle of the country, eh?
