Wednesday, November 5



Welcome to the new age.
The dramatically beautiful sunshine just feels a wee bit warmer today.
And I feel like I've fallen through a magical portal and landed in an actual future...
instead of living in a rebroadcast of a tv show that was canceled for good reason.

What do you say we all write to the president elect and ask him to make his
first order of business the passage of an executive order to collect Anne Coulter
and send her to Git-Mo for a couple of months of water-boarding?

Now that would be sweeeeeet.
~ and prol'y a lot more justifiable than torturing a 15 year old Canadian child for a few years.
(just one of the reasons why I have no patience for the ill conceived notions of the republican posture that all is fair in love and war...)

wearing
~ beige day... :)
~ same tie... but it works with both outfits...
~ and AND I have a brown belt on today... (goes with my brown penny-less penny loafers nicely)
planning
~ wake up and breath deeply... smell a little something new in the air...
~ put a crock pot on... pork roast... garlic, potatoe, carrot, cellery, onion, seasons... 8 hours on low. :D :D :D :D
~ get going early... with planned 9:00 am show at work, expecting several edits from the boss to get sorted before the show.
~ 9:00 am show actually happens. :D Listen to my boss's boss's boss tell everyone we rock and mandate that we plan to present to her boss in early December!!!!!
~ sit around being busy rocking... because I kinda do ... rock, that is. :D
~ answer the phone and struggle with the fact that as of now, I have THREE CLIENTS... sigh.
~ negotiate with my main client to allow me to bail for a few weeks to handle another client.
~ go get waxed after work.
~ what? hahaha... no seriously. I've decided be less hobbit like... (back, shoulders and upper arms) so ... wax on ... wax off. :)
wishing
~ Rodney King would get back on the television and say "Can't we all just get along" again...
~ to thank cerulean_me for sharing a little Milo. :D
~ and that the dips who think supporting Prop 8 (for example) will actually protect their way of life... get a clue... soon. It'll be a drag to see you all go the way of the do-do.

Birthday moments...
Happy birthday militantmomma.... I hope all is well in the land of you and that you get to celebrate your b-day with love and all the good stuff. :) And then take pictures so you can show your friends your pretty little face. :)
Happy birthday costello1177. May there be all kinds of good times sneaking up on you this year.

To all my friends that are struggling to come up with some new and theoretically effective
way to denigrate the results of last nights US election, I say that you need to go back in
Journal Land to the November 5th postings four years ago and see how the shoes fit when
they were on the other feet.
Everybody everywhere knows what a bleeding heart liberal looks like when he or she is upset
about being screwed by the process... because it frigg'en happens all the damn time.
Seeing pissed-off republicans making like they are going to gather up their marbles and go home
to be angry pants in their rooms... is almost humorous.
I'm sorry, but ... please... suck it up.

Truth be told... there won't be a civil war... the sky wont fall... and America will not become a big red-commi-fatherland.
There will be policy differences... foreign and domestic.
There may ultimately be changes to taxation and the re-distribution of wealth and program funding.
Stop making like these sorts of things wouldn't be true regardless of the election outcome.
And seriously... you sound a bit pathetic considering the outrageous bravado with which you
defended the scandalous election practices four years ago.
Again... suck it up.

It's time to move forward.

Oh... and the fact that he's black... is most definitely important.
Inescapably and immeasurably important.
Not only because it sends a message to the world...
But also because it finally "enfranchises" great segments of America that have been so unfairly left out of the big plan for far too long.
If you're black enough to burn to death in the trenches of every war from the civil to the current...
You're black enough to have a visible and irresistible voice at the helm of the ships that brought you to those hell holes.

All done. :)

//
Can you believe how badly Jon Stewart and Steve-o Colbert sucked last night?
Holy crap.
It is my personal opinion that there was (is) nothing to be gained by having them both on the same stage... for any reason, comic or otherwise.

For the first time... EVER... I'm looking forward to watching Oprah. :)

~ time to go. :)
