It's been a while since I last blogged. When you're working 3 jobs and spend your free time going to meetings, you're bound not to see or read anything interesting.

So, what have I been doing since? Basically, other than working, just reading blogs. Since the Gallaudet/UFG protests, the number of Deaf bloggers have grown significantly. I've pretty much been going back and forth with DeafRead.com and DeafDC.com.

Right now, there's just a lot of negativity. I was right when I commented that I had a sinking feeling that there will be a lot of blaming, arguments, jeering and the like before we even think of moving on. Right now, there are a lot of "woulda, coulda, shoulda" redundant comments.

At this point, I'm like, we could all talk our heads/hands off about the Gallaudet administration, education and ASL proficiency issues until the day we die. And from the comments I've been reading, it seems that we may just be doing that. We can all talk about it. However, I believe we'll be more productive by doing something about it.

I guess at this stage, nothing is being done UNTIL we get the presidency filled in. Well, at least until we get an interim president. It just seems like we will all be blogging, commenting and talking about it until Gallaudet gets a president, a provost and a complete board of the Trustees before anyone does some serious action. Maybe it's a bad analogy but I feel like we're at this track field. We're all getting ready to run a race. We've positioned ourselves at "ready!" "set!". However, we've yet to hear the "go!". We're still at the "set" position...just waiting to go.

However, when we do get that go ahead, which aspects of Gallaudet will be addressed with urgency? Will we be fighting each other that this particular issue should be made priority? Can we all afford to "wait in line"?

Moving on...


Wanted to wish a belated Happy Birthday to Rosey! Of course, I didn't forget her birthday yesterday. Just wanted to blog it here though.

So, Happy Birthday, Roe!

Then, I wanna wish one to Barbie, a beloved friend of mine. She's still one crazy girl. Today is her birthday but her son is having surgery on his torn knee. So, she's spending her day at the hospital. Motherhood, eh? Nonetheless...

Happy Birthday, Barbie!


So, other than working, what else have I been doing? Really...nothing! Well, watching TV and movies.

Brothers & Sisters

OMG! I love that show! Sally Field cracks me up as the matriarch of the family. Brothers and sisters are all of various personalities. One is a political pundit in a television show. One is a gay lawyer. One is a president of the family's business, which is in trouble because their deceased father did something illegal. One is trying to get pregnant with his wife but realized that he is sterile. One just came back from the war and is dealing with it. Throw them all together along with the deceased father's mistress and you have drama!


I had read a book of the Dexter series before I heard about Showtime wanting to make a show out of it. Indeed, a show was formed with Michael C. Hall playing the lead character. So far, the show has been pretty good.

Dexter Morgan is a crime scene investigator, for the Miami police, with blood being his specialty. However, Dexter is a serial killer. Yet, he just doesn't kill anyone. He kills the bad people...like the pedophiles, pimps, wife beaters, etc. So...interesting.


I really like Heroes. I don't love it yet because there are some people with powers that are like whatever. Anyways, people across the world are discovering that they have mutant powers. Right now, the story is building up to save this cheerleader from something.

Cheerleader - seems to have an X-factor healing power (think Wolverine) as long as nothing is puntured in her at the moment. Her adoptive father is suspicious.

2 brothers - both can fly. One is a politician and is in denial of his power. The other brother seems not only can fly but maybe see the future through painting.

Painter - seems to be able to see the future by painting. However, he feels that he can only do so after injecting himself with heroin.

Japanese guy - is able to freeze time as well as time traveling.

Blonde mother - is a confusing character. At first, she seems to be such a naive single mother who is hiding from her criminal husband. However, whenever she looks in the mirror, she sees a different version of herself who has superstrength. (think She-Hulk or Rogue). Her husband can make himself intangible.

Cop - telepath. Seems like he might become FBI.


I've heard so many people talk about Ugly Betty. I haven't had the chance to watch it.


Last night, I think I saw a dead body.

I was driving home from Gallaudet from a meeting, with KT and BH in tow. My usual drive to home was blocked off by police. I believe there was an accident. So, we turned around to an alternative path. However, it was also blocked off. We had to take a detour. Well, when I made a turn, I could see a man lying still on the street. I could see a small puddle of blood by the body. I thought, I've just seen a dead body from afar.

All I could think was grief that the family would go through when informed by the police that their loved one was dead.

What was shocking to me was that people, in the neighborhood, were walking by and around like nothing happened. I mean, was that something usual and a reality in the neighborhood?

All I know was that it was freaky. I sure couldn't wait to drive home for safety.


Well, y'all have a great weekend! Ta ta...
