I've been in Aurora, IL for weeks now. I have no idea how long because I have no job and I've lost all sense of time. I have learned a total of 38 new words, however.
Jingoism : ridiculous devotion to one's own country
Such as : my poor Republican parents who have no idea that George W. doesn't give two shits about them as long as keeping buying petro
Xenophobia : fear of strangers or foreigners
Such as : what do you know? another chance to talk about my parents.
I'm not bitter. Maybe I am for the moment, but it won't last.
