Good morning, America, I love ya!

Wow, I feel super-cool! Someone has linked to my blog--admittedly, it's my friend Erin, but it's still cool.

Okay, so you know you're too dialed into current events when you're looking at the carton of half and half, and instead of 'homogenized,' you read 'homosexual.' Yes, the Prez has me bummed out. Nobody I know can get married, not if he has his way. And while I don't even *believe* in marriage, lots of people do, and they should get to tie the knot if that's what fills their heart with joy, damn it all! So anyway, it looks like I'm going to be making some phone calls this Monday. Sigh. Why can't the fucking government just take its nose out of our business?

Or for that matter, our library records?

Anyway, the book project took a bit of a nose dive after we went to see Fahrenheit 9/11. My brain is way too wrapped up in politics to concentrate on my novel. Of course, it doesn't help that I keep doing awesome stuff like having barbecues and going to the Oregon Country Fair! Now that was righteous! The energy, the passion, the fun, the naked people! Hooray!

THere was a kid at the fair singing about how he dreamed of a better country, one that was pretty much like the Oregon Country Fair, all the time. He was sitting on a bicycle-powered stage, singing his heart out with his friends, surrounded by a lot of people in cool hats. Now that's an America I can really get behind!

Sounds like you're in the same place I am. Damn the president. I don't know if I can stay in the U.S. anymore, but if I leave, and other liberals leave, this country would be way out of whack!!
