blue and red are not the only colors

6 November, 2008

upside down

I’ve had the Exxon ads on my page for less than 24 hours and I feel the need to publish something new- NOW- so I won’t have to look at their nonsense. Also, I did something pretty risky and sent a link to two of my professors I knew would think it was funny… I should be more worried, I guess, but the two I sent it to won’t hurt me for sharing my personal work (is a blog work? It’s certainly personal).

So, I voted. I don’t really vote or pay attention to politics as I should. In my defense though, I’m trying to understand a slightly grander and yet more intricate view of the world and the constant bifurcation of reality into blue/red, donkey/elephant just seems too arbitrary, and it forgets itself- it assumes too much about what is innate and what is created by humans…

I lost you, didn’t I? I need to stop these tangents…

But anyway, my younger sister told me they already had my form all ready at the polling place and it was super quick, so I figured, what the hell, I might as well vote for Nader…
(Which I did, resisting the urge to write in The Almost Royal)…But then there was some question about an Illinois constitutional convention being reconfigured and if I didn’t vote it counted as a no and quite frankly I have no idea if it needs to be changed (see excuse above).

So I almost felt good, and not like a victim of ontological violence (see tangent above)… If my choices are Turd Sandwich and Giant Douche I’m going to pick the Benign Cyst every time.

    You. Are. Funny. I’m going to think about this throughout the day, and it will get me through!
