Ok, I know I am not the only one but damn does it not feel like this election season has been going on forever? Granted we are now in the home stretch, its a week and a day until showtime. I am nervous, trying to keep my hope face on, but truthfully feeling pretty scared. Scared that in the end, hate will win out and this country will be on a path that we no longer have to worry about securing our borders from folks coming in but instead it will be folks trying to get the fuck out of dodge.
Seriously, I had a dream that McCain won and that not long into his presidency he drops dead and we end up with evil Sarah as the leader of the free world. Can I just say I almost woke up screaming. I wish I could say there is one specific thing about that woman that scares me, but its the whole package. The fact that considering McCain picked her ass out of relative obscurity that now she seems to want more, like a power hungry robot. You would think she’d be a grateful bitch instead she wants more. The fact that she seems really good at bringing out the worst in folks scares me, the fact that she has never came out and taken a stand against the hate that she seems to inspire is troubling at best.
I suspect after catching a glimpse of Sean Hannity this weekend once again ranting about Obama’s relationship with BIll Ayers, I really got tired…by the way, why the fuck did he show a picture of Ayers taken at least 30 years ago? Yeah, I know to scare the folks who listen to the ignorant shit he spews out of his pie-hole. Can I just say that if I ever met Sean Hannity, I would just slap the shit out of him on general principal.
Nope, I am tired and at this point, thinking I need to stop watching the news. Generally I am all about knowledge but this week just feels like a time to retreat into my own world. Of course as a blog junkie, I know I will have some exposure to political happenings but at least its better than full on news which is almost leading me to have a damn panic attack.
So this week consider this a no news zone, at least no political news. Instead I am working hard to wrap up a strategic plan for a client and spend some time getting my Suzy Homemaker on. I have a meeting this evening so dinner will just be burgers, but tomorrow I am trying my hand at that butternut squash soup and apple tart. So stay tuned, I will tell you how it turns out later.
For now, back to work and hopefully in a bit I can go and enjoy some of this sun we are having today. Its a gorgeous fall day in my little town and I am itching to walk on the beach, despite the crisp air. Something about looking at the ocean or really any body of water since back home, while I didn’t have the ocean I did have Lake Michigan and the Chicago River to soothe my soul.
