So it's Monday. Whoo hoo! And so begins another week. I will try very hard to post more than once this week. I didn't post at all last week. It was my birthday week, but I had the least celebratory birthday on record, so I didn't want to write about it. Or not write about it. Somehow that turned into not writing at all. I'll be better--I promise.
Under the "Sometimes I can't believe what I hear coming out of my co-workers' mouths" file, add this: "Well, if Hilary ever gets to be president it'll be nothing but the rich getting richer and the poor getting poorer." Excuse me, but WTF?! Have you been around for the last 6 years? The Bush administration is nothing BUT the rich getting richer and the poor getting poorer. This astute political commentator also said "Well, I bet you money Bill Clinton runs for president again." And when a co-worker said "He can't" she replied "Why not? He only had that one term." Again, I say, WTF?! She capped it all off by saying "Well Bill just wants Hilary to win so he can get his finger in the pie again." To which I actually had to respond (I usually just bite my tongue and do deep-breathing exercises) "Do you seriously think Hilary lets Bill tell her what to do?" Poor Hilary. I'm not her biggest fan by any means (she's a bit centrist for me), but she just can't win, can she? When she was the First Lady everyone called her a ball buster, and if she does ever get to be president, those same people will call her a puppet. Which is why I don't want her to run, actually. She's very polarizing, way beyond anything deserved by her actions or ideology.
I was going to write about my dog today, 'cause goodness knows there's plenty to talk about there, but now I just feel like bashing my head on my desk repeatedly.
Thud. Thud. Thud.
