another day, another adventure

November 8, 2004

well pooh. what a shitty end to a long journey. another four years of the same. whoopie.

anyhow, i feel the need to vent a little. i feel like i have the touch of death. almost everything i touched over the past year or so went to shit.

first there was dean. damn that was fun while it lasted. too bad the media fucked that up.

tried to recoup with morris meyer. but that wasn’t the same. he lost too.

tried school politics by helping a friend run for student congress president. we got our asses handed to us.

even restarted the university democrats on campus only to have that ruined for me by the same asshole who fucked it up in the first place.

i could never really support kerry, but i tried.

even the stadium tax thing went to shit. fuck the cowboys.

bummer. maybe i should just stay out of politics in general. now seems like a good time to focus on what is really important to me. my home life needs some fixing. me and the wife could use some time to get to know each other again. she is so sad right now, and i feel powerless to help her. in fact i feel in the way.

school sucks but i need a job, so i have to graduate. another income would help a lot. i hate what i study but it will get me a good job and that is what’s important.

i don’t think happiness is all its cracked up to be. i haven’t been happy for a long time but i am still here. i get up everyday, do my thing and survive. that is what matters in the end. everything else is a distraction. no one ever said we are supposed to be happy. we just stay alive a little longer.

so, another day another adventure. there is more i would like to talk about but people who know me read this so i can’t even really get it out here. i am imploding and there is nothing i can do about it. nothing except survive another day.

oh, and iraq is still fucked up. joy.

    Hey Chris– my name is Rosanna.. don’t know if you remember me– but I know you from when Tommy used to drag my butt up to Kinko’s so he could hang out with you on the graveyard, oh– and from Fred’s parties.

    Your post really symbolizes how a lot of people feel right now– and the eternal optimist in me just keeps saying, “It *has* to get better, it just *has* to.”

    I’m sending this in hopes that it will reach you because I loved your post and empathized greatly– as well as hoping it will reach Anna as well.

    I know she must just be ripped up by all of this. I have tried to contact her (even tried to bribe her with tickets to the Mavs game on Sat– I ended up going alone– the babysitter cancelled, so the hubby stayed home) to no avail. Just please tell her there are those of us who are worried about her, and of course that we miss her.

    Here’s hoping it looks a little bit better each day until everyone starts healing.

    Chris, take heart: Ashcroft resigned tonight. Let’s hope he’s not replaced with someone even more odious.

    On an unrelated note (but perhaps related to getting on with life, dismal though it may be): do you know if Reverend BT and Mika are hosting a Turkey Day gathering again this year? I’m hoping so; I plan to make pumpkin soup again. This time, I’ll make enough to go around.

    hey rosanna and robin. thanks for your kind words. yes, i think at least half of america feels similar to me right now. i am already tired of the right and their bullshit rhetoric about how bush now has a mandate. bullshit. scaring people with terroism and gays does not mean people really want four more years. but anyhow, anna is very depressed. she put too much of herself into this election and now i think she feels like that part of her died. i am proud of all the hard work she did. she fought hard for what she believes in. hopefully she will find a way out of this funk.

    i am glad ashcroft is going. i hope someone less evil takes his place.

    what strange places life does lead us and what a wonderful mystery it turns out to be.

    The news appears pretty bleak as far as Ashcroft’s replacement is concerned. Alberto Gozales has been nominated. That’s one of the White House counsels (or the?) who advised the administration that the President is not restricted by pesky little things like international treaties regarding torture.

    It’s time to start stockpiling weapons for the coming civil war.
