for those NOT living in the area and NOT having it shoved down your throat every 2 min, Mt. St. Helens, approximately 55 miles from my house, has now been upgraded to a 70% chance of an eruption in the next few days. i find this highly interesting.
watched the presidential debate. felt Kerry shirked the questions somewhat (why do you think bush is a liar? well... i feel he isn't being candid with the public. VOTE FOR ME! I'LL MAKE THINGS BETTER! VOTE FOR ME!), but otherwise was extremely calm, professional, and absofreakinglutely wonderful.
Bush, on the other hand, i felt seemed much like a rich, spoiled brat who was defending his sandbox. "well.. well.... YOU topsyturviertopsyturvey!!! YOU FORGOT POLAND! but the war... i sent the troops I SENT THEM! I AM THEIR LEADER! why? BECAUSE I'M PRESIDENT! THAT'S RIGHT! *poutpoutpoutpout* it's MY freaking playground, and you! you're trying to play with my ball! DAAAAD! *sniffle*" the split screen shots of his reactions to kerry's speaches were classic and wonderful. i giggled.
my favorite quote? "war is HARD. i KNOW it's hard! i read the casualty reports every day! i watch t.v.!"
hrm. veitnam vet.... a guy who knows war exists because he's watched M.A.S.H. a few times.
i'm sleepy and cranky. send me to bed.
