a busy little bee am I

I have been so damn busy the last few weeks my head is spinning like a toy top. Working 70+ hour weeks, working on my house (which, by the way, makes me feel like I'm living in real life "Money Pit") and trying to have some kind of social life, has made me drop weight like I am on the atkins diet on steroids.

On the personal news front, my brother AND my boyfriends sister have just gotten engaged, (all in the same month)! What a strange coincidence huh ? Also, unlike in weeks of past, I did take some much needed personal time the last two weeks for wondrous lovemaking, sleeping somewhat in, and most importantly, a social life.
Among the highlights: eating some kick ass Ethiopian food, hanging out with friends to play pool, and most recently: seeing Def Poetry jam this past saturday with my honey, which had the effect on me that can only be described by the image of giving a hungry ass baby a tit to suck on. Ah, it was heavenly to be amongst so many creative individuals all longing to hear verses and soliloquies humming in the air.

Last but not least, I might be up for a nice promotion. I have an interview with the big bosses later this afternoon. So wish me luck and send that positive energy, I am going to need it. Ciao.

god help us all....

Another 4 years of hell, can you believe it ? Kerry actually conceded and Bush has been declared the winner of the 2004 presidential elections. Sigh...I can't help but be filled with an uncontrollable urge to cry tears the size of texas, scream profanities that would make baseball fans blush, shout at the tops of my lungs "Why, lord, oh WHY ????!!!"…or simply bop someone over the head with a really heavy bat for a good 10 minutes straight. Sigh

My only Q is: What is up with these Red States ? Can they not see what a moron Bush really is? How can they honestly want another four year term full of his arrogance, lies, and letdowns for our country? It just doesn't make any sense.

Slowly but surely, I am being sucked of all love for our system, questioning our so called freedom. I see no freedom in a place where gay and lesbian couples are ripped of their natural right of sharing their love with each other and god like everyone else...a place where women's right to choose between undertaking the choice of abortion is in jeopardy of being revoked...a place where affirmative action is slowly being reversed. All I see is a war for oil masked over by threat of terrorism to scare the bejesus out of the public.

I sit and type furiously at my desk trying to woof down my lunch and realize that Bush is single handedly reversing the forward movement of this nation back to a place and time where the minorities of this country were bound & gagged in order to be controlled by the government.

It just doesn't add up why people would be so gullible & we are all forced to endure more hell. Sigh...The ONLY consolation I have is the fact that after this term, Bush can’t run for re-election.

I am too tired and pissed to write another that is all I have to say about this for today.

judgement day is upon us....

Today's the day which will decide the fate of our country for the next four years. So, march your ass to your local polling palce to cast your vote before it's too late. As for me, I woke up super early this morning to ensure I had adequate enough time to make my ballot chad free. And for the first time in my life, my ballot was neither over or under counted in terms of votes. I voted exactly perfect FOR THE FIRST TIME IN MY LIFE. WOW. Maybe thats an omen...or maybe not.


Maybe I was just felt like doing something extremely drastic last night, or maybe it was the fact I wanted to express the state of my soul, heart, country & world. But in a the matter of a few seconds while I was shopping at my local drug store last night, I decided to pick up some midnight black hair dye and commenced to go home to dye my hair PITCH BLACK. Since then, everyone at work and in my perosnal life have done a double turn. It is a very drastic change in my appearance, but somehow it is very symbolic of my own life and soul at this moment of my life. who knows. In either case, pictures are soon to come for those who are interested. :)

vote or die...bitches

I know that saying (and that god forsaken t-shirt) has become so passe, but I have to somehow stress the importance of getting our collective asses into those polling booths to vote tomorrow. I kid you not, I will be biting nails and shitting bricks the size of city blocks into the night awaiting news which will in my opinion make or break this country for the upcoming years. I hope and pray that this country will not have to endure another Bush term.

If he DOES somehow manage to weasel his way into another term, I am seriously considering packing up my things and road tripping it to Canada to partake in some of that free healthcare and canadian beer/bacon I keep hearing about for the next 4 years or so. Care to come with me??
