dreaming tonight

I'm ready for Christmas.
I'm ready for the scrapbook paper, the craft projects and Bing Crosby. I know it's ridiculously early for all this, but it's so cold here, that I feel like it's December already!
I've already started collecting supplies: "figgy pudding" BasicGrey paper, some rub-ons, and glitter letter stickers. My Pandora stations are ready: Josh Groban, Bing and the Rat Pack.
I've already ordered from one scrapbooking catalog.

A good weekend. I just wish it wasn't over yet!

Trans-Siberian Orchestra. Yeeeeeah.

same old

I finally found this song. I've always heard it, but never known who sings it and what the name of it is.

So I share, with you.

the wanderer.

I have put over 40,000 miles on my car since I got it.. approximately 2 and a half years ago.

I get around.

Cue The Beach Boys!

welcome to hell.

I had a perfectly relaxing weekend, until. I went to the early service at church, I had taco bell for lunch, sushi for dinner.
then the damn neigh- wait.. I refuse to use that lovely word for them. The *heathens that live upstairs, decide to play bongos this evening. NOT KIDDING.
Then I hear a downpour of water... IN MY BATHROOM. I get a lovely waterfall coming out of my fan vent.



I usually don't say this.. but ...

the day isn't done.


I'm about to work, without going to work.
I hate doing interviews... mlargh.

and I have to work late tonight... :(

pictures, dishes and socks

Somewhere, between the mountains, I figured it out.
Journalism and I are like Billy Bob Thornton and Angelina Jolie.
It's so intense and crazy, that it's either going to work beautifully or crash and burn.
We'll see.

Today was good. I spit out a story, and of course, it wasn't Pulitzer-winning, but it was a story.
It was nice to work with people my own age.

Tomorrow is a semi-long day... but I'm going to try and make it shorter.. :)

life is a runaway train

The days just fly by.. it feels like it was just Friday night.
I guess that's good, because it will soon be Friday again.

Update on the Walmart trip - I only spent a little over 25, and even got milk and *real* chicken, which I haven't had.. in over 4 months.

Feelin' a little blue.. fighting a bit of an allergy thing..

but I guess I'll just keep on keepin' on.
That's all you can do.

Hopefully, I'll get to spend money this weekend, cause I really want some black boots (my others are dead) and a coat. Plus, I've got to start crafting Christmas presents.

ruby tuesday

So I have enough money for groceries, but it's in my new bank account, which I have no checks or debit card yet.
Boo hiss. Therefore, I must use my calculator to make sure I don't go over my $35 budget... and I didn't go shopping last week.

Don't freaking chant U.S.A. - that's for all of you.

Why is the media saying Palin won? If you mute, Biden won. If you keep the sound on, Biden won.
Everything she threw, he hit grand slams. Sure, Palin got a few in, but that's because she focused on Biden's Senate record. Palin didn't hurt the Dem ticket.. she saved herself and proved that she could stand up to the "Washington insiders" Biden did a good job of doing what was expected of him. The tear moment was not overdone - not like Hillary's at all.
People, working in Congress, you can't vote for everything. These omnibus bills they pass are usually full of crap that either party hates or loves. THAT'S WASHINGTON.
McCain is good. He's got a strong record, he's been around the block, which is one of the things I like (since being in DC, you understand how gov't works). McCain does have to carry the GOP ballot if they are to win... though he is as Cokie Roberts says "a boring white guy."
Obama is good. He's got that JFK quality, he's bringing a new generation to the voting booth. After being to a rally as part of the press pen, for me, he comes off on tv, but not in person. Obama seems uninterested when you're 20 feet from him. Either that, or the man needs a nap. The whole "change" thing is lost on me. DC doesn't change because of the color in office. DC only changes when it has to, and even though the economy sucks, it's not sucky enough. DC is a town of people who don't change. So many people keep their jobs after administration changes, that not much can change, unless BOTH PARTIES WORK TOGETHER.
Palin - give her some years in DC (in Congress) and ask me again. I'm sorry, but I need someone with DC experience in the WH. It's just how DC is. She skirted every question back to her comfort zone. Her job in this campaign is to be the energy to McCain's experience (much like Biden's experience to Obama's energy - though he's got some experience). She seems to TV sports reporter to me.. I seriously thought she was reading the teleprompter to me. You may be the outsider, but that just means you don't know how Washington works. And if you don't know how Washington works, McCain would have to give you remedial lessons. Good job handlers.
Biden - he's got the most solid experience in both tickets. He can be tough, he can be squishy (see almost tear during debate). He can give people the "boring white guy" but he can also give voters the comfort zone/safety, and light the fire under the Senate, so maybe he can do it for the executive branch.
Can we switch up the tickets after the conventions? I'll take a Clinton/Biden (either way) ticket versus a McCain/Pence (HOR, represent!) ticket please.
Though this whole election is who will bring "change" to Washington, voters must know that there is some things you can't leave to chance. Washington, no matter how much we hate it, can't change that much. Sorry folks.

Can I write-in my votes? or just get two new tickets?
