Montefiore II

I visited Nicole today. Even though she wasn't sick, injured, or even in pain, seeing her in a hospital bed irked me. I never like seeing people in hospital beds. No, it's not a fear, it just makes me uncomfortable. This all stems from seeing my grandfather and great-grandmother in a hospital bed. It's upsetting. This wasn't a hospital visit in which the person I was seeing was in a serious condition or recently went through surgery, so it wasn't as emotionally moving as if it was such.

Coupled with that... I'm starting to get paranoid about her test results...

Montefiore

Today marks the beginning of a possible ten days of hell for Nicole. You see, back a few months ago her doctor recommended putting her in the neurological center at Montefiore Medical Center in the Bronx. The reason for this is to find out once and for all what caused the June 2006 seizure she had.

No problem, right?

Well, she has to stay there for 7 to 10 days. Sure, she gets to use a plasma screen TV (bad channels according to her) and her cell phone as well as her I-pod, but she has to deal with that crappy hospital food and the lack of privacy as well.

Hell, she called me early and stated she's already caving...

Oh well...

There's always a price to pay for finding truth.

August 18th

I just recently noticed that I haven't mentioned that my mother, brother, and sister are moving out to Long Island to live with Bill, my mom's fiance.

A sea of boxes has really begun to rise out of almost nowhere in the past week. Lots of old photos have been showing up such as the following.


(I'm the one standing, my brother is the one in the stroller; I forgot what year this was taken in... Please... hold off on the Timmy Turner-esque jokes for later)

You may now be wondering where I'm going to be living. Well, I'll be moving as well. Not 40 miles, but only a floor down. The room currently beneath me with soon be my new room, my own room (no more annoying sharing... ugh).

I'm pretty sure I'll be settling in my new room before August 18th, but alas, there is no wireless internet connection, yet (I'm using my laptop for things like this from now on). Don't expect many updates around moving time.

Abortion

I'm an advocate of abortion, albeit not a front-liner, because I do have one ground rule here. This is my appeasement gene kicking in. Check it out:

Abortion should be legal in all cases EXCEPT being used as a contraceptive.

Now, before you say, "But Jonathan, that means if a guy knocks up a girl, she shouldn't get an abortion.", here me out.

The following is a collection of situations to help clarify what I mean by abortion not being used as a contraceptive:

Abortion is legal.

Abortion is legal.

  • Guy knocks up girl during unprotected sex.
Have fun taking care of that kid.

  • Second and Third Trimester Abortions?
Legal, though they are kind of gruesome if you've read about them.


Basically, if you're going to have sex, use some god damn protection. Abortion is a last resort, not a reason to not sacrifice a little pleasure. In fact, abortions cost much more than the pill and a condom COMBINED.

Of course, this is all personal opinion and not politically stable.

It's tricky trying to please everyone.

Agnostic Plunge

If you're one of the people who know me personally, then you're probably aware that I'm not the most religious person around. Frankly, I'm not religious at all compared to when I was little and couldn't make up my own mind. Now that I've grown older and am more than capable of putting two and two together, I've taken experience and ideas to formulate my own views on issues that have an affect on me.

Though the following announcement is a little late, I think it's the best thing to make it known: I am Agnostic.

Think of this as poor-man's atheism. While I doubt the existence of God, I do not outright deny Him nor renounce my own religion. I'm taking the path of weak agnosticism, which basically means: "I don't know if there truly is a god, but you might know."

If There Ever Was A Draft... / Funny Monkey

Not that the odds of this are completely zero, but if the country ever went to war with a country, and called for a draft, you bet your ass they'd have to drag me out of my home to get me to fight in their ill forsaken war.

You've got Bush (and the government) to blame for my lack of patriotism.

Speaking of Bush, after he is out of office, a game show should be made with him as the star. It'll be him, and a bunch of news reporters giving him questions, and the contestant has to press a big red button whenever Bush dodges an important question with meaningless rehearsed generic answers.
