Sooo… I just don’t even want to post. It’s all too depressing. I’ve had a really shit 24 hours.
Work was just awful on Friday – and its far too long and complicated to go into. I got some depressing family news. I had worked out my budget earlier in the week and saw I was in trouble, and then I heard from the laptop repair place that they were not able to restore power to my laptop, and fixing it would probably mean replacing the system board. At which point, it might be more cost effective to get a new laptop. But… I can’t afford either really. Basically, I’m in tough straits. I don’t know. I’m going to wait to hear back from the laptop guy again on Monday and try to figure out what to do.
Oh, and then I got a call from the electronics store to say that my ipod had arrived. Yeah, a week too late. Awesome. Maybe the laptop guy can give me a battery that’ll last long enough to back up my hard drive onto the ipod? Or I could repair it and save a couple hundred, even if I’ll still have to buy a new one in a year or so. Ech. I just don’t know. I’m going to go home and sleep a lot.
In other news, read “the life, the universe and everything” and watched quiz show. I might be going to Akaroa tomorrow. I need to go to the gym a bunch next week, since I only made it once this week what with everything going on. I need to go find a good coffee milkshake.On a happier note;
This is a great post from the fug girls. Mostly how they point out that someone decided to take a classically trained singer and waaaay overproduce her voice. I mean compare that song to this. I mean, say what you will of the song, but her voice is clearly better here.
Jorja Fox is leaving CSI. Sadness, but the important bit of the article is the following, “Fox is leaving at a time when CSI couldn’t be stronger. Last night’s season premiere bested Grey’s Anatomy by 21 percent in the overnight ratings.” Hell yeah it did. Stupid upstart surgical soap.
Yay! The dems might stand a chance in ’08! An e-mail I got from courage campaign, “Dear Jessica, The dirty trick campaign to steal the White House is dead. They stared in the face of tens of thousands of activists from around the country and turned and ran… for now.
The dirty tricksters were driven into disarray and defeat by you. They lost their funders. They started in-fighting. People resigned their positions, all because of the pressure you placed on them. The Los Angeles Times just broke the news that they are officially “pulling the plug” on their attempt to steal the presidential election. According to the Times, the dirty tricksters no longer have the capacity to put an initiative on the ballot to take 20 of California’s electoral votes.
Frankly, it is hard to trust that. Knowing the right-wing like we do, it is crucial that we stay tuned and plugged in. This dirty trick could roar back to life, or they could find a new way to steal the White House. There is always a dirty trick up their sleeves.
That said, this is a huge victory that deserves to be celebrated. The grassroots and the netroots came together, in a show of strength and right-wing backed down. So spend the weekend and do that, because come Monday, it is time to get to work. It’s time to stop playing defense and start playing offense. There is so much that we can accomplish together. I can’t wait to get started. Sincerely, Rick Jacobs
Good Colbert on here. Geneva convention is a good safe word.
I’m feeling somewhat calmer than I did yesterday, in large part to playing Absolute Garbage and decemberundergound over and over and over at very high volumes (I NEED MY MUSIC). And the following; this time imperfect and endlessly, she said.
