I want to live in Kid Nation.

I have no real work to do (well, none that the temps can't do when they get here), so I'm planning to spend the day catching up on Kid Nation, listening to the new Fiery Furnaces album, and playing Scrabble on Facebook.

I'm not going to go into great detail about Kid Nation, by the way, since I'm three weeks behind in watching it (I just discovered you can watch episodes on CBS's website), but I'm pretty amazed with it. I think the best thing about it is that the children act their age, yet they are so much like the adults you see on every other ridiculous reality TV show. My favorite part: when one of the children yelled that he hoped he didn't have to poop in the outhouse. Can't you see someone on The Real World screaming the same thing?

My interview on Monday went well, although I'm not sure I really want the job. I also had two phone screens, as well, and one of those was very good and I expect to get an interview. Meanwhile, I'm still applying; I've sent my resume to seventy jobs at Northwestern alone.

I want to live in Kid Nation too. that little girl Tyler is such a bitch (yellow team Council Member). this show may be the one thing that saves her when she sees herself portrayed. Except maybe she'll think she's really cool and a princess. Is it illegal for me to admit that if I was 14 i'd have a crush on Michael from the green team. If so, final answer I don't have a crush on him.
