More Than Valentines or New Years,

More than Valentines Day or New Year's Eve, January 31st is a time when no liberal should be alone. Even if you're stronger than most, the Bush State of the Union Address can have strange effects on people. Heck, it only takes sixteen words to scare a nation stupid!

Anyway, the Democratic Party is helping people organize and find SOTU watch parties. Check it out! There are already a number of events in NC, and it should be a great way to meet people who actually want to talk about the content of the speech.

Where are people in CH going?

I have never gone to a house party for a SOTU - I normally get sick half way through and watch Law & Order reruns or something equally innane.

Jesus Swept ticked me off. Too short. I loved the characters and then POOF it was over.

I've been thinking of having a party at my house

though I've yet to have the stomach to watch Dear Leader for more than five seconds.

Who wants to come?

I'm in Chapel Hill . . . pretty easy to get to near Eastgate.

I'll check with the fam

and see if there are any plans, otherwise I would love to come by.
Let's see:
* Pepto, check.
* Bucket, check.
* Ear plugs, check.
* Foam brick, check (it's your TV after all).

Oh Anglico...I want to come!!

Unfortunately, I will have to sit home and watch it upstairs in my office while my Republican husband watches downstairs. I don't usually speak to him for days afterwards. He can forget hot meals and clean clothes. That's OK though. He still doesn't know why we had such a nice meal on October 28! There's this part of me that wishes Fitzgerald was a staunch Dem and he would ruin the spin on the SOTU by indicting turdblossom the next day. Ahhh a girl can dream, right?

How can you stand it.

My wife threatened me the other day with becoming a republican if I didn't start doing something she asked. It was hilarious, but that is because I don't have to live it.
You must be a patient Dem.

Patient, yes

able to control my glee over indictments, no. I was in a good mood the other day for no reason and he came home and noticed....he asked me, "who got indicted this time?" Hehehe.

I know we have a lot to do before the 7th, but I may not be around much tomorrow. I have to help chaperone 40 7th graders at the UNCC library. Imagine being around 40 preteens as they try to act cool enough for college. Urgh.

Don't you wish

you could go back and tell yourself not to worry about all that crap? I remember the college orientation, some freshman telling us we absolutely could not use both straps of our backpack!!!

I can't say I rebelled and used both straps, because I couldn't afford a backpack, : )

I came home to let the dog out....

This has been the funniest experience. Some of these kids don't know the first thing about research, so I'm doing a crash course for them. There are a handful who are brilliant and I think might have been born with the Library of Congress call numbers implanted in their brains. The girls sure did primp and preen trying to impress those college boys and the boys took their dork pills because I've never seen them act so goofy.

I know I was cool at this age. No way I acted like this.....hehehe.
I have to run back so I can relieve the other parent of my wards and get back to researching with the gang. See ya'll later.

And Robert...yes, I do remember, but I'm not sure I would want to go back. I wouldn't mind recovering some of my lost brain cells, though.
