Hey!

Now that enough people have joined to make me feel like I'm talking to a community, albeit a small one, I can welcome everyone properly. So, welcome *waves* I'm Hannah, your guide to being a psyschotic-san-franciscan-environmentalist-teenager-and-sort-of-poet. Run away fast. I'm a little crazy when it comes to global warming. My mother has been driven nearly to nervous break downs because, little gremlin that I am, I unplug every light and appliance I can like a pre-schooler grabbing all the markers people "aren't using." I dream about floods. When I can, I spend Friday nights going to see slightly geeky science guys talk about global warming. If you're still here, I'm assuming your about as freaked out about what's happening to our world as I am. So welcome to the fold. We'll be the ones who go down in history for saving the world :)

Ah, even as I write this a friend has sent me a new lovely petition to sign, curtesy of Al Gore. http://www.algore.com/cards.html

On the oscars: I wonder what the reaction was to so many mentions of global warming at an event watched by people nation wide. I have the feeling a few people turned off their tvs in disgust when Inconvenient Truth won for best documentary! Bravo academy! Good choice!

Here are the lyrics to I Need To Wake Up for your shower singing pleasure...

Have I been sleeping?
I’ve been so still
Afraid of crumbling
Have I been careless?
Dismissing all the distant rumblings
Take me where I am supposed to be
To comprehend the things that I can’t see

Cause I need to move
I need to wake up
I need to change
I need to shake up
I need to speak out
Something’s got to break up
I’ve been asleep
And I need to wake up
Now

And as a child
I danced like it was 1999
My dreams were wild
The promise of this new world
Would be mine
Now I am throwing off the carelessness of youth
To listen to an inconvenient truth

That I need to move
I need to wake up
I need to change
[ Lyrics found on http://www.metrolyrics.com ]

I need to shake up
I need to speak out
Something’s got to break up
I’ve been asleep
And I need to wake up
Now

I am not an island
I am not alone
I am my intentions
Trapped here in this flesh and bone

And I need to move
I need to wake up
I need to change
I need to shake up
I need to speak out
Something’s got to break up
I’ve been asleep
And I need to wake up
Now

I want to change
I need to shake up
I need to speak out
Oh, Something’s got to break up
I’ve been asleep
And I need to wake up
Now
