OK SO EXCITED. also, do you think Pat could stay too? Maybe just for a night so that he’s well rested for his drive out to Aspen? This is an ineffective means of communication, so I’ll call soon. We’re due for a chat anyway. xoxo

please hire me. i don’t care if i have to be a shitty hostess and stand around for 12 hours with a dumb smile on my face for $7 an hour. i have too much experience and education for about 80% of these craigslist listings. i need monay.

“i just wanted to let you know that i’m hungry for meat. so when you get off the plane call me and tell me where we should meet.”—a lady in the bathroom of the piper inn leaving a message for her “friend”.
every time there’s another dude that i like who’s not into me, i act like it’s such a bizarre thing. i say to myself, “weird, this dude’s not into me. why does he not like me. how strange and incredibly out of the ordinary.” when in actuality it’s incredibly in the ordinary, because it is the only thing that ever happens. and yet i have such a difficultly seeing the record of similar situations and am soo surprised when it doesn’t play out the way i planned it to in my head.
buy a coloring book and a box of crayons and color that shit. why? because the semester’s over and i don’t have to do anything cerebral for the next month and coloring is the least brain-y thing i can think of.
“In a quiet, unassuming way, this guy from the previous generation has become the symbol of many of the things our generation is all about: logic, skepticism and policitcal change through merciless teasing. And the fact that most of our elders call us “the worst generation” for relying on a comedy program for our news, while we call them “the insanest generation” for creating an environment in which a comedy program is one of the more reliable sources of news, seems like one of the more interesting conflicts of the decade.”—cracked.com on jon stewart and the daily show
Coming from a purely political perspective, I’m thinking about how the Committee vote will look for her nomination to the Supreme Court. Sonya Sotomayor was voted out of committee 13-6, with Republican Lindsey Graham voting with all 12 Democrats. Early statements from Senator Graham don’t indicate that he’s going to outright oppose her, but lately Lindsey’s been a bit…volatile. If he goes, we’re now at 12-7, a party-line vote.
Arlen Specter: imagine if he loses his Democratic Primary against Joe Sestak next Tuesday, and some of the latest polling shows him behind Sestak 47/42. Since switching parties, Arlen has become one of the most reliable Democratic votes, mostly due to his challenge from the left. He was always a thorn in the side of Republican leadership, but hasn’t caused the same trouble for Democrats. Why? Because he wants to keep his job. If he loses the primary, he loses his job. Then what does he do for the next 7 months? I doubt he falls lock-step with the Democratic Caucus, especially when he’s already voted against her once as Solicitor General. We’re now at a committee vote of 11-8
Wild Card — Russ Feingold: Feingold has never been one to shy away from progressive causes, and for using and sometimes withholding his senate vote to further them. If, in digging through the nominee’s paper work, he decides he cannot in good conscience support her nomination to the high court due to her (some would say “conservative” but we may want to add “neo” to the beginning of that word to more accurately reflect what I mean) stances on executive branch powers concerning terrorism and torture, he may decide to vote against her. Now we’re at 10-9 and that’s just one vote shy from defeat.
Of course this is all pure speculation but it’s what’s been running through my head this afternoon.
