Shop and Help Orphans

Hey if you're still shopping for holiday gifts (I definitely am) try buying through this link for Amazon.com. Amazon will donate 5% of your purchase to Orphans of Rwanada, an organization dedicated to helping orphans and other vulnerable children in Rwanda who have been affected by the 1994 genocide and diseases, such as HIV/AIDS and Malaria. If you go to this site you will find a bunch of other retailers that will also donate if you buy through those links. Even Orbitz is included! If you're like me and spend a lot of dough on travel, this is awesome!

Trying to Watch Survivor

Does anyone else HATE CBS' implementation of watching video online?
I'm trying to catch up on the last episode of Survivor, and honestly, it is such a disaster!

I don't mind the commercials, but, unfortunately, the "inner tube" program doesn't continue the show after the commercials! So it looks like the show is split up into 5 segments and after each segment, you have to watch a commercial. Well, instead of playing the show after the commercial, I just get another commercial and another one, until finally, instead of getting segment 3 - which is the one I wanted - I got segment 5! And there's no way to go back unless you start at the very beginning!

So after sitting through this torture like 3x and STILL not being able to get to the right segment, I just gave up. I'm so frustrated! Why couldn't they implement it the way ABC did? I think that online video player is SO much better. I think I might just go to itunes and buy the show instead. Why do these media companies have to make everything so complicated?? Just create a functioning video player! And let me go to the part of the show I want to see!

Sigh.
