A Paco Lips. When? Now!

Today is off to a lousy start. I overslept, missed my train, and finally got in to work an hour late. I finally arrived at my office in the middle of a scheduled building evacuation drill, which meant waiting around outside for another 20 minutes or so. My giant Dunkin Donuts coffee has only slightly woken me up.

The election results haven't done much for my mood this morning either. At this point, no victor has been declared, but I'm pretty sure that Ohio is a lost cause and that we'll have four more years of Bush. What makes me sadder is that this seems to be what the American people want. Unlike four years ago, Bush actually seems to have won the popular vote and not just the electoral college. Not by a landslide, but by a majority. I have a bad feeling about the repercussions this will have for our economy, civil liberties, and general safety... but I'm gradually realizing that while I've always considered myself fairly moderate, I was just fooling myself. Apparently I'm way left of center and center is much further right than I was aware of... I've always been directionally challenged. Never ask me for directions. This is the point in my post where I could really start ranting... but I'm just not in the mood today.

Tonight I'm going to go home and find out what Jack Van Impe has to say about all of this. He's my all time favorite end-times theologian! I love the way that he and his lovely wife Skeletor Rexella break down current events and show how all of them are predicted in the books of Daniel and Revelations. Apparently it's just a matter of time before the European Union, the Illuminati, the WTO, and the Skull and Bones folks manage to pull us all together into the New World Order led by the Antichrist. Good times! Years of tribulation and then the triumphant arrival of Shiva the Destoroyer Jesus to put the smack down on the sinners and deliver all the people who have sent $29.95 to Jack Van Impe straight to heaven. Rock on! Jack's "Final World Government When? NOW!" DVD is most definitely going on my holiday wishlist.

Mastah Chief!

Last night on my way home from the Salem train station, it started to snow. Not very much and only for a few minutes, but it was definitely snow. I'm actually looking forward to the snow this year. I know it's going to provide new challenges for my commute, but I can only imagine how beautiful the beach at Winter Island must be in January.

In geek news, my copy of Halo 2 has shipped and is somewhere between Ohio and Boston. I'm all giddy... It's sort of the video gaming equivalent of a new Harry Potter novel. Wow. Did I just say that? I am a huge geek.

Year One

One year ago today, Lizzie married me and made me the luckiest guy on Earth. I couldn't ask for a more perfect partner, friend, lover, cheer leader, or center of my universe. Every curve ball that life has thrown at us so far, we've faced together. It's only made us stronger. I love you, Sweetie!

A Modest Proposal

I stumbled across a reference to this on William Gibson's blog...

"Christian Exodus is an association of Christians who no longer wish to live under the unjust usurpation of powers by the federal government, and therefore resolves to formally disassociate itself from this tyrannical authority, and return to the model of governance of a constitutional republic. We seek a republican government constrained by constitutionally delegated powers. If this cannot be achieved within the United States, then we believe a peaceful withdrawal from the union to be the last available remedy."

Basically, they ask that all like-minded people move to South Carolina! They figure that if they can convince 12,000 ultra-Right wing Conservative fundamentalists to move to a particular part of South Carolina, they can gain control of the state government. From there they will either force change on a national level or secede from the friggin' Union. They consider our current conservative Republican administration way too LIBERAL. Wow... I wonder how the current citizens of South Carolina feel about all this. I mean, I know it's the bible belt, but c'mon...

Maybe we could offer them a nice island somewhere... let them have their own little theocracy in the middle of the ocean. I think that would be neat. Maybe this one is available.
