How thankful I am that the BSC will be open for part of Thanksgiving Day. It will provide me with a preemptive strike against the impending belly fat from all the calories I plan to consume that day. Or, maybe it won’t help that much other than ease my guilt.Filed under the gym | Comment (1)
I must have blocked out many things associated with Dubya’s presidency, because for some reason Clinton’s 1992 election and inauguration are a lot more vivid in my memory than George W. Bush’s.
I remember thinking it was pretty cool that Clinton played the sax, because at the time I was pretty into my clarinet. Woodwind power!Filed under My Life, Politics (general), nostalgia | Comment (0)
I’m not really sure why people are so surprised it passed. An almost identical proposition, Prop 22 passed in 2000 with 61% of the vote. And in 2004, San Francisco began doing same-sex marriages and shortly thereafter the California Supreme Court put an end to it.
It disgusts me beyond belief…if California is supposedly a liberal state and a garbage prop like this gets passed, what hope is there for the majority of the country? How can something that discriminatory pass?
I’m ridiculously happy about Obama AND the Massachusetts ballot questions (No, Yes, Yes — it happened!) but this Prop 8 business infuriates me.
Right now I’ve never been prouder to be from Massachusetts.Filed under Current Events (other), Local & State Politics, Local News, Politics (general) | Comment (1)
Today is moving in slow-mo. I feel beyond antsy! I seriously want to take some Tylenol PM so I can wake up and know the election results. I’ve had butterflies in my stomach since yesterday! As confident as I may feel about Obama winning, after the 2000 and 2004 elections, I cannot really relax.
Plus, there are some really interesting ballot questions here in MA (No, Yes, and Yes for me), and additionally I’m concerned that Prop 8 in CA will pass. (I lived in CA during Prop 22, which to my dismay passed and subsequently got me interested in politics.)
I think I need a glass of wine. I’m wound up. :-)Filed under Local & State Politics, Politics (general) | Comment (0)
We harvested two out of the three pumpkins on Halloween night:
That’s Matt in his Halloween costume. He was the failing economy, with a noose instead of a tie. He was also handing out money to everybody. He was wearing a suit and hat and the suit was purchase for only $13 at a local thrift shop!
Somehow I think the picture seems awfully creepy…Matt with his hat and noose, on a crisp Hallow’s Eve.
We still have one pumpkin that’s not ripe for picking yet, but it will be soon!
Hopefully next year will be a better one in terms of pumpkin crops, but hey, three pumpkins isn’t so bad.Filed under Photos, gardening | Comment (1)
I cannot stand those Sununu and Shaheen commercials anymore!!!! They are driving me up a wall. Yesterday Matt was watching football all day and I swear, each commercial break there would be multiple commercials for both of them. They’re so scathing, especially Sununu’s commercials.
They’re also on the radio a lot, so sometimes we wake up to those awful commercials on our clock radio.
AND we can’t even vote for either of them because they’re in New Hampshire!!!!!
In 48 hours, not only will we learn who won the election (and these butterflies in my stomach will finally wane) but then I won’t have to see or hear those terrible Sununu and Shaheen commercials anymore!!!Filed under New England, Politics (general) | Comments (2)
