political tattoos dressed up for cold weather lunch with neurotic coworkers


I listened to this entire interview with Congressman Patrick Murphy (D, PA) this morning. Man, forget Obama, he's all idealistic and great speaker and all, but where are all the politicians like Murphy?  If guys like this were running the country I'd feel so much more proud.  Plus don't you just want to pinch his little cheeks?

I just realized that I need to call and confirm my tattoo appointment for Saturday, which made me realize, secondarily, holy shit, new tattoo! On Saturday!  I'm glad I was able to forget it.  The anticipation always kills me.  Of couse now I am totally obsessing about it and there's still DAYS to wait.  *sigh*   (AHAHAHAHA!  Just as I was typing this Pandora gave me Lucero's "All Sewn Up (in Bad Tattoos)".)

In a conversation this morning, I said, "I need a huge lump of cash so I can make my whole work wardrobe 'sexy librarian' and keep the casual wear at 'cowgirl.'"  I amuse myself so much.  But really, I think this a great idea.  This concept brought to you by today's out fit: pointy, pointy black heels, dark blue trousers, white blouse, floral cardigan in two shades of blue, hair in a bun, minimal make-up. Mmmmm, librarian sexy.

If I has a choice, I'd vote for no more temperatures below 40°F.  I am so tired of being cold. I can't seem to spend enough time complaining about how spring isn't arriving early.

I can't decide if I should just my lunch now, or eat a bunch of Girl Scout cookies and save lunch for later.  I'm not even sure I'm hungry exactly.  Just bored.

I just noticed that my hideous coworker has a 16 oz pump bottle of hand sanitizer on his desk.  Yikes.  I maintain that hand sanitizer is only for when you do not have access to soap and water.  Needing a huge bottle of it on your desk in a building with functioning plumbing? A definite sign of serious issues.

  1. I just read this: http://guerillawomentn.blogspot.com/2008/02/hillarys-accomplishments.htmlAnd I was overwhelmed suddenly with how little I know about these people I will be voting for this fall. Do you know of anywhere online that I might be able to find something like this on all the candidates? (Where "something like this" translates into a general list of actual accomplishments, and not just what their "positions" are on various issues.) I thought I'd ask you first since you know such things quite often. I should also address this question to the Punster.

  2. Punny would have way more info than I would, I think. Thought hat list of accomplishments seems very biased to me. I mean, yeah, you can spin her stuff into good, but you can do that for almost anyone, so I'm not sure how useful it is overall. I think ti's more important to look at how politicians have voted int he past on issues that matter to you. Just because they have personal values that have lead them to good work sin the past doesn't necessarily mean when cash and power are on the block, that they will vote their personal conscience. Voting records say way more, I think, especially when contrasted to something like this list.

  3. Do you have any idea where to find a list of voting records? I'm sure it is public domain or whatever. Nevermind, I'll google. I agree that cash/power is something I'm pretty biased against Hillary over, as we've discussed, but I do think that actions speak pretty loudly and so does experience. I do think she's likely to sell out for power, but I know next to nothing about Obama except that I think I like him better, and that's not much to vote on. LOL!

  4. You might start with:www.votesmart.org/andwww.ontheissues.org

  5. I'm disturbed to find that as far as the voting record goes, I'm more onboard with Hillary than Obama. Weird. Very strange.

  6. I hit post too soon. I was going to clarify and say that at least upon a rather superficial perusal. I didn't look at every single one of her votes, but she did seem to abstain less than Obama, for one thing, which I am interpreting as a positive since it seems to imply decisiveness, something I envy and admire as an indecisive person, myself. Anyway, thanks for those links. I'll spend more time looking more closely.
