Yesterday my brothers and I decided to watch all the episodes of The Simpsons, starting from the very first season.
I had a weird thought while we were watching. It’s a miracle Homer and Marge haven’t ended up using tubs and tubs of wrinkle cream. I think I’d go crazy if I had a kid like Bart.
Anyway, we’re continuing the marathon later. Should be fun.
Today, I will confess that I’ve always had an obsession with men’s polo shirts.
I like how they look on men, I like how they look on women, I like how they look on dogs (haha). Everyone should wear them. I have – on occasion – filched a polo shirt from one of my brothers’ closets (usually my younger brother since my older brother has gained a lot of weight lately).
Take that as your dose of quirkiness for today. You’re welcome.
My bedroom is currently littered with packing boxes. We’re moving soon, and we’re worrying about more than doorbells. But right now I’m worrying about packing.
I’ve come to the conclusion that I’m a total packrat. I’ve kept so many pictures, notes, and documents that I don’t even need. It’s funny. This time I’m making a promise to myself to only pack things that won’t end up collecting dust in a corner.
I’ve been out of the radar for a while, since I’ve been super busy with work. There are so many things I want to do, yet I don’t seem to have enough time. Good thing I don’t have sat prep to worry about.
So what’s new?
* It’s still hot.
* We have to move soon.
* My gaming activities are practically zero.
So yes. Life has been basically uneventful.
It has been two days since we (if you’re registered) went out, chose our leaders, and fed that ballot to the polling machines. The partial results have given us an idea of the official results.
I’ve been hearing a lot of noise, with regards to the partial Presidential and Vice Presidential election results. Some of them have me shaking my head in disbelief. Better to look at a free credit report than these comments.
Here’s what I have to say, outlined in bullet points. This is addressed to the supporters of candidates who have already conceded defeat.
* Voting is over, and some of the candidates have graciously conceded to the candidates in the lead, and offered to help our new leaders. If you truly love our country and desire change, why don’t you do the same instead of promoting elitism and divisiveness?
* How can you keep harping on about other people’s immaturity and lack of intelligence when you’re acting like a 6 year old who was not able to get his way?
* If you truly care for our country, why are you rooting for our new leaders’ downfall and failure? Shouldn’t you be hoping for the best?
The fact of the matter is, it’s done. Other candidates have accepted defeat, and the least we can do now is to look beyond May 10, 2010, set aside our egos, and see what we can do to help repair this nation. I understand why other people are feeling frustrated about the outcome of the elections. I, too, was disappointed when only a few candidates from my dream senate slate got into the Top 12. But I am also aware that I’ve done my part by voting, and there is nothing else I can do. Let’s just suck it up and work together.
This is probably going to be my last election-related blog entry. Tomorrow, everything’s back to normal.
