So it is here is something that will scare you...

Either John McCain or Barak Obama will be the next President of the United States....

Life... is like a box of chocolates. A cheap, thoughtless, perfunctory gift that nobody ever asks for. Unreturnable, because all you get back is another box of chocolates. You're stuck with this undefinable whipped-mint crap that you mindlessly wolf down when there's nothing else left to eat. Sure, once in a while, there's a peanut butter cup, or an English toffee. But they're gone too fast, the taste is fleeting. So you end up with nothing but broken bits, filled with hardened jelly and teeth-crunching nuts, and if you're desperate enough to eat those, all you've got left is a... is an empty box... filled with useless, brown paper wrappers.

We're Screwed 2008

I can't wait for this election to finally be over...

I freaking sick and tired of all the bs'ing back and forth.

On one side you have what people believe to be the Messiah and on the other you have two "Mavericks."

Frankly I continue to believe that either way we are screwed.

I mean really do you think that whomever is elected will be the end all of the United States of America?

I still don't know who I am going to vote for...most likely a 3rd party.
  • Obama just frightens me because he is inexperienced and has a "cult of personality" following and apparently can do nothing wrong.
  • McCain is not the same person he was back in 2000 and has changed his stances on many issues in order to get in line with the Republican Party base.
  • Neither of the candidates have addressed issues that really concern me like: Where do they both stand on the all important issue of Geppettoism
I think I will be voting for Bob Barr, not because I agree with everything he stands for but he is a nut and makes no bones about it. I can also proudly say that I didn't vote for either McCain or Obama. My second choice will probably be General Zod.

Anyway this is what I think will happen:
No matter who wins in less then a year the other party will start the campaigning process once again and whomever wins will most likely be a one-term president unless they can work magic.

Tomorrow after work I am going on a news blackout. I am going to leave work, go to the gym, go vote, then I am going to come home do what I need to do to get ready for Spin class and work on Wednesday, depending on the time I might watch some of Season 6 of the X-Files and then go to bed and hope that when I wake up in the morning and get to the gym hopefully this election debacle will be over and done.

Yeah it makes me feel all Mavericky inside...

11 Years and Counting....

So today is the day that I don't look forward to all year.

Today marks the 11th year since my father was killed.

Since I started the blog back in 2005 I have used this as a place to record memories and the times I spent with my dad. Unfortunately this year I don't think I am going to be able to do it. It is not that I don't want to or can't think off anything but nothing that I have tried writing feels real and I don't want to "phone it in". It really upsets me since this has been a very cathartic process but I just don't feel into it this evening and I have been sitting here for over an hour typing and deleting and repeating but it just not going to happen. So call this what you will...a "Best of..." or the "Clip Show" I really don't care.
