I, for one, welcome our new alien overlords…

So, yesterday was fun. Didn’t you have fun? I sure did.

Work was a funeral yesterday. Everyone trudged around with these 1000-mile stares. A couple of us went to the gym at lunch to work off some anger. Surprisingly, it worked. After the first ten minutes the endorphins kicked in, and my feelings of suicidal angst toned down to a mild incapacitating depression.

Today I’m feeling better. We had the first frost of the year, and the walk to work was enchanting. A pond filled with frost-tipped cattails is a good tool to restore calm. Like most blue state Americans today, I’m going to get on with my life, do my job, and live the way I want to live. That’ll piss ’em off.

  1. Hey Erica!

    Maybe you should move up north to a country which is much more progressive and liberal (we even have a political party called that!); CANADA! No, we’re not perfect, but sometimes it sure seems that way (even the UN thinks so!). It’s always fun to visit your country, but I feel a sense of relief when I cross that border back to my home…hmm, wonder why??

  2. Why was work a funeral yesterday? At my library most of us were having a blast. (Probably because most of us are Republicans though…)

    I won’t gloat. I respect your sadness. The Democratic Party has become a regional party out of touch with broad regions like the south and the mountian west. It will have to find ways to appeal to voters in these regions or it will never win a national election again and it will continue the steady dive of seats in Congress. I hope it recovers. This country needs two strong parties. (Or maybe a third strong one too.) Keep your chin up. Life goes on.
