Long Walk, Quick Vote

After work today, I went out and voted in the special election for Fulton County Commissioner. This was a hassle, but I'd feel like a hypocrite otherwise.

Because the poll location isn't particularly close to any MARTA station and the Route 10 bus didn't happen to come by on Peachtree Street, I ended up walking over there, which took around 25 minutes. When I got there, it took a couple of minutes to fill out the voting form.

Once I got my electronic voting card, it took me like 30 second to vote, because all I did was stick in the card, click Start, pick my candidate, and Cast Ballot. Then I gave back my card and got a sticker.

It was so fast, it was scary almost!

Walking & Falling

I wanted you. And I was looking for you. But I couldn't find you. I wanted you. And I was looking for you all day. But I couldn't find you. I couldn't find you. You're walking. And you don't always realize it, but you're always falling. With each step you fall forward slightly. And then catch yourself from falling. Over and over, you're falling. And then catching yourself from falling. And this is how you can be walking and falling at the same time.

Damn, I love Laurie Anderson lyrics...

Finding the culprit

One of my meds is giving me hot nightsweats. I don't know how to find out which one. *Glares a pills and demands: "Was it you?!" Ughhhhh, what a suck way to feel in the morning.

Life Sucks, Do Me

Yeah, "LSD Me," as Tit Wrench put it!

Today is so TOTALLY sucking! I hate being a manager, I'm up to my eyeballs in my own work, I've got a huge pile of stuff at home too, I feel SICK and CRAZY because of these pills I'm taking, and our servers are fluking out.

"Life SUCKS! Do me. Fuck me! Fuck me! Fuck me! F-f-f-f-f-f-fuck me!"
- Tit Wrench

Where the Hell is Tit Wrench today? Going to have to hunt them down so they can write more soothing (he he) melodies about Saddam Hussein, immigration and Bush (this time, the son). Anybody live near Chula Vista?!

Damn drugs...

I can tell by how I feel physically and mentally that there is something in the meds I'm taking that's reallllllllllly bent on messing me up. My co-worker Shelley here says it's probably the antibiotic decongestant -- which is fine, as I only am taking that for a few more days. In the meantime, I guess I have to settle with feeling like I could go postal any second. I CANNOT cope with stuff today at all!

Revolutions Review

If anybody'd like to read a review of Revolutions, my friend John at scifidimensions has just done one based on a viewing last night. It's got *some* spoilers in it but he gives warnings. Also be warned that he gives the movie a C rating.

Movie Review: The Matrix Revolutions

P.S. I am feeling slightly better. I was just about to call the doctor, because I swear my pulse was skipping out, but now I feel steadier.

P.P.S. I bought a bag of sugar-free hard candies. They are DISGUSTING!!!!!

UMass Still Smokin'

Today I got an email from the UMass Amherst Alumni association. On the sidebar of the (HTML-formatted) email was a link to the Daily Collegian, where I used to work. I couldn't resist clicking on it to see what's going on. Well, looks like things haven't changed that much:

Marxism conference hits UMass

Maybe you have to be a UMass or Happy Valley grad to find that amusing but... LOL! One of my best friends majored in Social Thought and Political Economy (i.e. creative, interdisciplinary Socialist theory).

Also proving things not changed much: UMass student arrested for marijuana possession. Well, yeah, that's a given.

LJ Style

I finally figured out how to change my style. Man, for a web designer, I am dumb about this. And look how minimalist it is! I admire the really pretty LJ's, but I kind of like the spare style I think.

Two Things... Flewelling & David Hasselhoff?

Happy Book News
I just found out, via Lynn Flewelling's own words, that she's officially told her editor she'll be doing another Nightrunner book. YESSSSSSS! Of course, I still wish to hell she'll "allow" fan fiction but damn, I love those books and they're slashy and wonderful anyway, so hey, I can stand that I guess.

BIZARRE VIDEO
What the HELL is the deal with this David Hasselhoff "Hooked on a Feeling video?????? Is it REAL? What the HELL?! Where did it come from? I found this link and am just fascinated, yet baffled... What IS it?????!!!!
