A Beautiful Problemette

Okay, people, I have a problem. It's not really a big problem, like the failure of the economy, the fact that Sarah Palin might one day be president, or the shooting pain in my stomach. No, it's more of a problemette. And a beautiful problemette at that.

I am obsessed with We Heart It, a "visual bookmark for everyone." I can't stop. Because look at this!
And how much do you love this!And apparently there is a photographic technique known as bokeh and I love it and want to have its babies?And color!
I can't stop. I have been doing this for hours. And when I think I can get away, I end up checking the Flickr Hive Mind and FFFFOUND and getting sucked back in. I need help. Send help. How do you expect one woman to fight the pretty, pretty, prettiness, colors, birds, bokeh, christmas lights, skeletons, Alice in Wonderland, clouds, pretty color prettiness? I'm weak. I can't stop.

Or you can come on over and obsess with me - I'm kissonwetglass .

Things that make me cry in my cubicle. Part IV

If you haven't seen Jill Bolte Taylor's Powerful Stroke of Insight, you should watch it immediately. "Jill Bolte Taylor got a research opportunity few brain scientists would wish for: She had a massive stroke, and watched as her brain functions -- motion, speech, self-awareness –- shut down one by one. An astonishing story." Plus, you get to see a real human brain!

I want to unlock my chest. I want to escape.

Cold front + full moon makes me feel like this:

Republicans: They continue to make me throw up in my mouth a little.

Apparently Sarah Palin will not be interviewed by the media during the campaign? And all we will learn about her will come from scripted speeches? And according to the McCain campaign, the American people don't care about her views on domestic and foreign policy? And also, the media did something to Palin's family that we have never seen before?

I am so sick of such blatant manipulation and disregard for the American people. I'm not sure whether to cry or throw up. I have been saying, "Well, who cares who is elected president, as long as it is not Bush?" But I don't think I can say that anymore. Because the McCain campaign is feeling more and more like a manipulative, clueless narcissist who is out of touch with reality. And since I have dated a manipulative, clueless narcissist who was out of touch with reality, I can tell you that all they do is spend your money, lie, and cheat on you. Blech.

Please to return to the unfettered optimism of the Obama campaign?

P.S. Jon Stewart is a genius.

P.P.S. Holy crap! I just realized there is going to be a vice-presidential debate between Biden and Palin! That'll be good watchin'!
