06:49 am - bring me the head of the one-armed man
i have found, in my political musings, that i have a bloodthirsty streak which i am not happy about. i am taking great pleasure, for example, in the republicans' ridiculous string of scandals running up to this election. not just because it's going to cost them politically, but because i think they're tools and like seeing them get it on the head. this is a disney morality, where not only does the good guy have to win, but the bad guy has to get tossed off a building. i don't like it. i am opposed to retribution, i don't want to want it.
oh well, welcome to humanity, self.

i had something else pseudo-deep that i was going to say, but i forgot it, so i'll just go to bed.

oh, this isn't it, but -- i realized today that i'm not passionate about any kind of art anymore. i mean, i still like it, i like watching movies and listening to music and reading books. but i like it the way i like a good sandwich. it's tasty, if i'm really in the mood for it it's wonderful, buuuuuuut who cares? it's just a sandwich/book/movie/song/poem/painting/sculpture.

okay, now bed.

i get that way sometimes. and then some particularly good movie or music or sandwich will completely blow me away when i wasn't expecting it.

Did you listen to The Speech the other night? I hated pretty much all of it (liar liar pants on fire) but this little piece in the news really torked me: http://www.realcities.com/mld/krwashington/news/nation/13767738.htm?source=rss&channel=krwashington_nation

ok that's enough policital talk. How's your mom these days? Hope everything's good.

yeah that caught me too. how the hell was that not literal, he was giving specific numbers! maybe i shouldn't pay taxes anymore, and say i thought the IRS wasn't being literal.

my mom is good. my parents might be coming out here in the spring! or to florida, they haven't decided yet

i'm glad you clarified that they may not visit you because you would have seen them recently and not because they hate you and would rather vacation in florida.

Last year my parents went to florida instead of California to visit me. And they didn't say why.
