I'm feeling a bit blue because I'm coming down from such a fantastic trip to Washington D.C. You know how that is, you look forward to something for so long and once it's over it's like "Oh crap, it's over." I really love Washington. I think I could live there.
I'm also a little bit depressed about the election. I hate politics so much. I'm depressed because our representative, Jim Oberstar, a POWERFUL Democrat with lots of seniority got beat by a guy who seems pretty normal (in his commercials), but I listened to a debate and he told lies about how Oberstar was trying to "federalize" every field that has water on it at any time during the year by calling it a wetland, and taking it out of state control and putting it in federal control under the umbrella of the Clean Water Act. Just a bald-faced lie/scare tactic and that depresses the shit out of me.
And I shoveled a bunch of bullshit snow off the deck today. SNOW!!!
Now nothing is on TV so Mitch and I are watching a weird show with Kirk Cameron telling the secrets to more effective street-evangelizing. Like giving people million dollar bills with the Lord's message on the back. He says to give them to waiters. Then the waiters are all, "Hey, thanks! Wait a minute, what the fuck is this bullshit million dollar bill? I'm totally spitting in your food if you ever come here again." Kirk didn't say that's what the waiters would do, but I've been a waiter(ess) and that's what I'd do if someone gave me an evangelizing fake-million-dollar-bill instead of an actual tip.
That's about it for now, Peeps. The rest of the week I'll be in a third grade class. That should be fun.
