<clears throat and steps up, onto the soap box>

After all this political schtuff, I'm a Republican.

I'm a Republican who can't agree with Republicans on abortion or gay rights.  Which causes a bit of a problem.  I'm like stuck.

I'm sorry--but there are few Republicans (people in general, I'm sure) who have met a 14 year old girl pregnant with her FATHER's baby.  And until they do, I can't hear what they're saying about pro-life.  They've lost their minds!

And screaming at me that marriage is between a man and woman just crushes any freedom of religion this country was built on!  COME ON! 

So, humpf.

Obama's got the right message right now.  I'm worried about how much government he's going to put into our lives, but sometimes its necessary to get over our prejudices!  I mean, Ab Lincoln-JFK-... these are big names who fought for some equlity but lost their lives because of ignornace. 

So, VOTE.  And try to make an informed decision about your vote.  Don't vote because of emotions, a feeling, candidate color, gender or age. Educate yourself and then DO IT. 

<removes herself from the soap box>
And in other,  very exciting news:

I've lost 20.2 pounds.  

I wish I could see it, but it's rather exciting, to say the least, that the scale says it. 
 I need $2,500 by June.

Any suggestions as to how I get it?


Something always brings me back to you.
It never takes too long.
No matter what I say or do
I’ll still feel you here ’til the moment I’m gone.

You hold me without touch.
You keep me without chains.
I never wanted anything so much
than to drown in your love and not feel your rain.

Set me free, leave me be.
I don’t want to fall another moment into your gravity.
Here I am and I stand so tall, just the way I’m supposed to be.
But you’re on to me and all over me.

You loved me ’cause I’m fragile.
When I thought that I was strong.
But you touch me for a little while
and all my fragile strength is gone.

Set me free, leave me be.
I don’t want to fall another moment into your gravity.
Here I am and I stand so tall,
just the way I’m supposed to be.
But you’re on to me and all over me.

I live here on my knees as I try to make you see that you’re
everything I think I need here on the ground.
But you’re neither friend nor foe though I can’t seem to let you go.
The one thing that I still know is that you’re keeping me down.

I'm getting closer to my home.

today was awesome.

gotta do subplans and remediation plan
What is yours?
Explain yourself
Culinary: leaving food on the floor the dogs really have never let me down in this department.
Literary: skipping descriptive sections I need dialogue...
Audiovisual: foreign cartoons (NOT anime, though) If you haven't seen 'Kirikou' you have to rent it. It's so hilarious...
Musical: my dad's 70s music I can rock out to some Elton John and ELO
Celebrity: Rachel Weiss "The Fountain" was terrible. But her kissing made it totally worth it.
