Majority of Americans Reject Theory of Evolution.
NEW YORK (Oct. 23) - Most Americans do not accept the theory of evolution. Instead, 51 percent of Americans say God created humans in their present form, and another three in 10 say that while humans evolved, God guided the process. Just 15 percent say humans evolved, and that God was not involved.

americans are just stupid. now, perhaps evolution isn't THE theory, but i don't think 'god' had much to do with it either.
it's actually just reaffirming reading these things... you can safely say to yourself, 'at least i'm not american...'
and then daman showed up..
not much has been shaking, i had my first thanksgiving, canada style. so i helped make as australian as i oculd with some awesome potatoe salad. it was really good.. i should make more. and i made custard, but that didn't work out so well. it was kinda fun making such an old person's meal. i think i'm still grappling with this whole growing-up-sorta thing. anyway, it was good, we had too much food, and i did all the dishes.
then daman showed up. and that was cool, but i was too tired from all the entertaining i'd previously been doing and couldn't muster much more than a few drinks. he's off to calgary now to go work at some horse stable. i haven't heard from him yet, so i hope he's ok, we'll just have to wait and see i guess.
aside from that i'm now desperately looking for work, of which there seems to be a whole lot of nothing. but i have applied to a publishing company which I think sounds promising. at least, it seems like a place i'd like working at.
I have a phone interview tomorrow, which should be as exciting as hell. i'm a little scared, i guess i should brush up on some nerd literature tonight. i'm not so keen on this job as it requires a bit of web site nerdism, which i'm not so hot at. but we'll see. perhaps i can outsource it..
its getting cold here, which makes me happy!! more and more reasons to stay in bed.
i've been listening to a band called 'Stars'
today. very poppy, but so delicious. i like. high five.
a great success!
that's right, andrew and naomi tied the knot, their shoe laces, silk ties and curly fries yesterday afternoon with a stiff breeze coming in from across the bay. you could almost smell Geelong in the air... well not really at all, but the adjectives just kept falling out..
then we partied on down in the city of melbourne, australia. it was great to be back and with such good friends, it was just a killer of a night. hi-fives when they wake up. i'm not sure how much i drank, and thats probably a good thing. i just had so much fun, although it would have been the delicious icing on the cake if rachel had of been able to come too. it really would have been such a blast with you there.
im heading down to mccrae with hammertime either this afternoon or tommorrow sometime. i love to get down there and walk along the foreshore detailing all the newly painted beach boxes and subsequently graffitted newly painted beach boxes. oh and of course the water on the bay. and it will be great fun just hanging with hammer, he is so on top of things and has made being back home such a lot of fun and generally hilariously entertaining.
i head back to canada on thursday morning, stopping over at nadi and honoloulou, which i didn't realise last time i looked at my itinery... odd...! oh well, i'm sure they'll work it out, or i'll have to one way or the other. no more anal probes though , please, i really don't think it is an effective way to 'gather intelligence'.. it just doesn't seem to be all that smart to me thats all.
i usually just wear my normal pants, but just sometimes, i find the secret pants.
