Please welcome baka_kit and cavaticat to my journal. Fellow writers--Yea!!!

My Type of BeautyCollapse )

Whom I Should Vote ForCollapse )

I now have two FBI cards with my fingerprints on them. The Houston Police Department (HPD) building is on the next street west and just south of Foley's, so it's easy to find, once you learn where it is.

I have now been to Krispy Kreme Doughnuts. I passed the blasted store three times while looking for HPD, and on the third time, I surrendered and had a chocolate iced, cream-filled doughnut. Yummy! Then I went to Slainte for lunch and had a couple of shandies and their beer-battered chicken tenderloins...Delicious! The chicken in those things is positively succulent--so tender and moist that, if there were bones in it, the chicken would be falling off of them. So good!

Another good part to the day--I explored more of the downtown tunnel system that I had never been in before. There's a Luther's Barbecue in the tunnel system, now, and a credit union that only charges $1.25 to use their ATM.

Travis Street is all torn up. I don't know what the heck they're doing up and down it, but as far as I could see, there were piles of dirt and bundles of planks. It's almost as bad as Main Street was last year, before they finished building the light rail system. Bleah.

Political Nonsense: I can't even call this an Outrage of the Week, because I am far more baffled than outraged. I don't understand the hatred that some people apparently feel for Bush and Cheney.

When someone destroys the Bush/Cheney sign of a neighbor and then burns a swastika in that neighbor's yard, that implies hatred (and stupidity, and rudeness) to me, and I call it like I see it. There may very well be people doing the same to neighbors with Kerry/Edwards signs in their yards, but I haven't heard about that yet. I'm sure it happens, though--what's stupid for the goose is stupid for the gander.

I don't have a problem with disagreement. Plenty of my friends support Kerry and Edwards, and these friends are good people. I love them dearly, and I will continue loving them, no matter who wins the 2004 presidential election. I hope they feel the same toward me, regardless of our preferred candidates.

But I really don't understand the hatred, rudeness, and complete contempt of some of the people I have seen, particularly on LJ. Cripes, people, I know we have freedom of speech to criticize the government, but when did that give us the right to be assholes about it? I don't see this in journals, themselves; I mainly see it in comments left in others' journals--just rude stuff.

Oh well, it'll all be over in less than a month, thank God--at least, it had better be. I really don't want a repeat of last election. That was, to say the least, tiresome. I hope it can be decided, one way or the other, on November 2--because I'm really tired of putting up with this nonsense, and I'm sure many other people are, too, no matter who they support.

Current Mood: grumpygrumpy
