politics and opossums

First I would like to say I did not cave to the pressure of the opossum hating gods. I did not hit the opossum with my car last night even though aforementioned gods tossed opossum in front of my car with less than 10 feet between us. I do not bow down and worship at evil their alter. Hahaha.

And as Merb101 said somewhere there is a very grateful opossum living out his opossum life in a way only an opossum can that has not been hit by a car.


In other news, I wish Obama had just won Ohio and Texas last night so the whole thing could be over, but he didn't, so the race is still on. I also think it would be easier all around if Clinton won, because then Michigan and Florida delegates could be counted and not piss off the voters.

Edwards would make the safer VP choice for either candidate, but if they start to get nasty (at the moment it's mostly just jabs) they're going to have to pick each other to pull the party back together.

I hope whoever doesn't win runs again in the future. They're both strong candidates.

On to the Republican side... McCain. I liked McCain 8 years ago. Now I think it's stupid that he's decided to back all of Bush's current policies and getting a Bush endorsement. That's enough to make me vote against McCain. Bush has the honor of being the president who went from most liked to one of the least liked.

Let's look locally at what he's done for the country. Nationally, he's... well... made the Democrats stronger. That's a good thing, right? He's shown young people the importance of saving because the economy's shot and there's nothing the government can afford to do about it. I think that's about it.

On a global scale, he has managed to start a couple of wars and alienate almost all of the world leaders and most of the world's people. That takes some talent. To give him credit, he did remove a dictator from power (I'm inserting here I was always against the stupid war, but did not verbalize it. I thought there wasn't enough evidence of weapons of mass destruction and we were still needed in Afghan, but that's a different blog). Now said dictator's people hate the United States, the military and really wish we'd just left their country alone.

So McCain has decided he wants to follow in those footprints. Hmmm, can anyone else say dumb?


In global politics, Russia had a presidential election were President Vladimir Putin's man, Dmitry Medvedev, was elected as the next president. Apparently this decision was made because Putin supported him, everyone wanted Putin's politics to continue and Putin gets to be prime minister. NPR and a couple of other media outlets have indicated that Medvedev has shown some signs of being his own man. I wonder if that's good or bad.

Oh and in another surprising and probably brief plus for Bush, he did reach out to Medvedev. Good move, until you alienate him, too.


P.S. Do not give in to the pressure of the opossum hating gods.

Baby campaign trail

I found an amusing... blog? that I wanted to share. A father decided he wanted to have his daughter photographed with all the big name potential presidents. I just wanted to see the photos, but he wrote comments to do with them that made it entertaining.

My favorite sentence was "Strategically positioned against the Secret Service barricade, I hand him my little bundle of political propaganda."

Santa's a hit -sort of

Someone found this online and I thought it was funny.

I'm glad Santa's not more seriously hurt, but it's not often you hear about Santa getting knocked out.

snow and guys

I have come up with a good reason to have a man in my life for at least a few months of the year. I need someone to clean the snow off my car and fill it with gasoline when I'm running low and it's cold outside.

It snowed for the first time this winter on Wednesday. It melted off a little yesterday and snowed again this morning. Roads are pretty good today, but may be that's because it stopped snowing several hours before I had to drive to work.

There are several inches of snow on the ground and everything looks so clean and pure (except the roads). Looking out the window at it, I'm reminded why I like winter.

Then I step outside and it's freezing. The wind rips at my clothing, sinking in until I'm to cold to shiver. It reminds me of being at college, except college was colder. 

Today's not so bad. for one thing, I remembered to wear my hiking boots, not my nice boots with 3 inch heels that don't do much to keep the cold out. And the wind has calmed down.

I do wonder how much snow we're going to get this year. We didn't have snow at all until January or February last year. This is the first year in a long time I think we may have a white Christmas.

I'm looking for a good picture for a Christmas icon... I thought something with the Charlie Brown Christmas tree would be cute, so I started typing in words... But I'm a big Lucy fan, so changed my search to Charlie Brown and Lucy. On one of the pages, near the bottom was 

CHARLIE BROWN'S NAKED BOTTOM! it was a picture of Charlie Brown and Lucy. I think I'm traumatized! I don't know if I can ever look at peanuts the same way again!

To top it off, I was at work, and many people pass by my desk a day. On the plus side, I did traumitize my co-worker with it, but I told her what it was first and she stayed standing there, so I think it's her fault.

just another day

 

Yesterday we found out one of my co-workers got engaged. It was very exciting. I didn't add any more details here so I could be criptic and bother a couple of the co-workers who did not already know. One was not at work. The other was, but he's mean to me.

I bribed him with chocolate to not shake my chair, punch me or poke me in the arm for the rest of the just finished week. He didn't, though he did ask a couple of people to punch me/chair shake for him... and they did! He didn't even have to bribe them. By the end of Tuesday, I'll probably have a big black and blue spot on my arm. However, he's kind of whimpy, so after I punch him back once, he'll probably be crying on the floor.

Good times at work!

first post

I work with a bunch of crazy people, the most crazy of which have live journal accounts, so I thought I'd join them. If anyone work with them to long, they'd become crazy too. At least, that's my defense.
Hopefully, I don't suck at this. I've got to figure out how to add some photos... and find my crazy co-workers. Hopefully, I got their e-mail addresses correct.
