Being sick is stupid.
Corbin wins, I like The Wire.

So today Amanda, Matt Olsen, Corbin and I went to a Joe Biden rally in Tacoma. It was held at the baseball field the Tacoma Rainers play at. There was a lot of waiting, standing, and guilt tripped into signing political mumbo jumbo.

We had okay seats at first. The stage was at about 2nd base, we were by 1st. The they let more people down in the field. We franticly made our way there. We were about 2 people from the front. Pretty damn close.

Some small level politicians came on to talk, then Senators Cantwell and Murray. Finally the Gov Christine came on spoke, then introduces Joe Biden.

It was pretty cool being that close. Being a part of the action.

He totally gave me eye contact on several occasions.

I was seeing history in the making, as corny as that sounds. I will be able to tell my children I saw a future Vice President speak.

I can't wait for this election to happen. I hope ya'lls will vote.
The race for Gov will be even closer in this state. That vote really matters.
Little of the national stuff will make a difference if our state is going a different way .
So fucking VOTE!!!!!

The Hopless Romantic

Screw being in your 20's. All I heard when I was in high school was that this is supposed to be the best time of your life.

Well, I'm over it. I don't buy it. Being young, going to bars, hooking up, dating, going to college.
I'm an old soul.
I want to be in my late 30's with a wife, a house with a big yard in a rural area with 2.5 kids.
A steady job as a history teacher. I'll go fishing, and make coffee cake for breakfast every Sunday.

But I guess I should take in my youth while I can.

I get a lot of crap for being romantic about stuff, mostly from Corbin.
I idealize classic America and want to hold on to it.

That's why I like old rustic things, diners, farms, things clinging on in our modern world.

I have a field trip on Halloween.

It's to Seattle. We are not expected to be back until 11 pm
Fuck that noise!
Last Halloween I had to work.
I guess Halloween losses its charm in your 20's
I feel like costumes have to be ironic or sexy.
It was so magical when your a kid.

So Suppose'n I get back in time to even bother putting on a costume these are some ideas I have

Classic ones:
  • Werewolf/Teen Wolf/Wolf-Man
  • Mad Scientist
  • Sea Monster
  • A Detective
  • Disgruntled Fisherman

Back to Skwoul

So I'm in this program.
It's about the Middle East.
Today we learned about rationality.

I like football.
Most people know that about me.
I still feel weird that I like it.
I can't talk about football with anyone I know.
I would actually blog about the NFL
But I'm pretty sure no one would care
That's ok.
Maybe I could just talk about it anyway
Like how Corbin talks about The Wire.
Lots of people watch The Wire, Like lots of people watch football
But really only like 2 people have seen it.

The Second Candidate debate is going on right now.
All alone in the beach house.
I kinda like the whole "town hall" concept
But the set looks freaking ugly
What's with the carpet?
All wrinkled and crap.
Purple, Red, Blue?

That carpet is SO RED!

McCain really does not have a neck.
