Blog-abstentia


WOW! I just realized that I haven't written a writerly blog in a very long time, and I'm gonna stay on that roll...

I blame it on ELECTION 2008.

I've been unable to function properly ever since a certain bespeckled brunette took the stage for a possible No. 2 spot in the White House. And all those debates had me enthralled. So much better than the usual prime-time shows. I mean, only on Dexter will you see the horror such as the likes of waiting for John McCain's carotid artery to explode. I mean, really - his face looked like he just had a chemical peel; his eye twitched like someone hid his Prozac; and did Joe the Plumber ever show up at whatever berg McCain put the shout-out to him? I think he wanted to buy old Joe a beer, or maybe offer him a high level cabinet position if he happens to win.

Oh God, please don't let it happen! I know I said Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada is only a two hour move from here, but I can't be held accountable in a city with that many casinos. I was just kidding. Really, I was. (But I do love Labatts Blue and hockey...)

I want to stay in the shiny new United States with Barack Obama at its helm and not a wrinkly has-been former POW who only has that going for him.

So please, all my blog readers who are at the same end of the spectrum (the left end), say it out loud so the Universe will hear you: Give the job to Barack Obama! And make sure everyone gets out and votes!!!

(Stay tuned for writerly blog after the election...)

Kath, I'll be voting for Obama tomorrow! He's going to win!

I know the feeling! I have barely been able to write since Palin appeared on the scene.

(I have a word for the verification: grist!)

Kath Calarco said...

Edie, go shout it from your rooftop (or front porch)! My stomach has never felt so twisted with angst - UGH!

Kath Calarco said...

Spy, exactly how I've felt. And you should see me try to do the Sudoko puzzle. OY! It's always the final part of my newspaper reading day, so you know, my mind just isn't there.

(How dare S.P. jar our thinking and creativity! ;) )

Barack got my vote. Although, I hesitated on Bob Barr's name only because the shock of seeing him on the NC ticket had me at a loss. Heck, I almost punched a hole in the ballot trying to fill out Barack's circle.

Erica Orloff said...

AMEN! I voted!!!!!!

Kath Calarco said...

Oh, Marcia, you kill me. I'm just happy you got the right (left) circle.

Kath Calarco said...

Erica, me too! Stood in line for an entire seven minutes. I think I took more time inside the booth studying the rows. I was so afraid I'd pull the wrong lever - but I got it!

Hip, hip, hooray! Today is a day to celebrate! Obama got my vote weeks ago and I'm so happy to call him the president-elect.

Kath, I'm picturing you doing the happy dance!

Kath Calarco said...

Robin, you should picture me not only happy-dancing, but crying. And you should have seen me this morning while watching The View. Whoppie and Sherry's (?) comments were heart-stopping.
