Bountiful innuendo - RUNNING COMMENTARY
I'm already freaking out over the election.

Florida is recounting votes.

Voting is oddly thrilling, refreshing and vindicating.

I voted some greens for Verona city council.

Did you?

EDIT: I find my self staring at CNN.com's election map. Refresh. Stare. refresh...

EDIT, The Sequel: I can't wait for the day when all voting is instantly tabulated to a centralized computer. I want instant results! None of this bothersome waiting for humans to report. Humans are inferior. I want a vote by vote list giong. I don't care to know when a state can be declared to a single candidate.

EDIT - a trilogy: Has it already been a month simce the first debates? Holy fuck, wher has all this time gone. What have I done with it?

EDIT. A quartet in Minor. Kerry was projected as ahead in the last polls by about 2%. A lead is a lead (can you tell for whom I voted yet?), ne? I'm hoping that all this "Cell phone" generation talk is a joke and has an impact. Good thing about my generation? We like democrats, largely. Even the Xians (christians, like Xmas) I know are democrats.

EDITO Cinqo: never have I seen so much voting posts. I like that people care so much. My friend's list is all "I voted. Did yuo vote" I'd almost be annoyed but I love it!.

1:09. I have "Spendocrats" going through my head. Damn you Simpsons. Damn you and your fake Rush Limbaugh. Damn you Rush Limbaugh.

2:03 WHy do I like rice cakes so much? because it makes me feel like I'm eating a crazy cracka like Bush! (I need help)

WELCOME TO MY RUNNING COMMENTARY. I'M HERE TIL 4:30.

Current Mood: nervous nervous

How was the fish?

rubbery. Not much taste. Dinner is going to be quite a bit better...

Worst part of breakfast this morning was that lemon water stuff. I couldn't drink it. Grapefruit was ok and that Cereal is awesome.

I won't commence freaking out until some of the states on that election map have, you know, colors.

Right, right. I'm a nut.

What's with the Zimbabwe flag?

1: It's possible that I've begun freaking out. Thank you.

2. I haven't been so keen on the US flag for a few years (odd, that) and I found myself in need of a flag icon. I chose Zimbabwe because I once wrote a poem about it.

Every time I had a project on a specific country from 5th grade on I used Zimbabwe. I had taught myself quite a bit of Swahili because of it.

AMAZING.

What was your rationale for choosing that country, specifically?

I think because it had a Z in the name. Plus the Mbira Nyunga Nyunga is a really cool instrument used all over the country. I really wanted to find one of them for the longest time and never did.

I bet I could find one on State Street...

I think one of my dad's students played that. I know he's had a few from that region of Africa over the years.

That poem is weird. Reminds me of Gertrude Stein's "Tender Buttons"
assfingers From: assfingers Date: November 2nd, 2004 08:12 am (UTC) (Link)
I have been compared to Gertude Stein.

That's going on the resume.
abmann From: abmann Date: November 2nd, 2004 08:18 am (UTC) (Link)
Have yuo read any of her stuff?

Tender Buttons is the nly book of her's that I can stimache. It's weird and image-tastic - but almost too modern for my tastes.
assfingers From: assfingers Date: November 2nd, 2004 08:44 am (UTC) (Link)
I actually haven't (SHOCKING!), but I'll take it as some sort of praise, because I have actually heard of her.

I enjoyed that poem, actually.
abmann From: abmann Date: November 2nd, 2004 09:04 am (UTC) (Link)
You must be some crazy person then.

I bet you like Frank O'Hara and Thylias Moss and Wililam Burroughs.

Hippie...
