“…Jane, his wife!”

That 3-dimensional cartoon on the far right is Cindy McCain. Don’t get me wrong, I like Cindy. She’s rich, and she owns more houses than her husband can remember. But holy cow…Michelle Obama was under a microscope during the whole DNC…what will she wear?…why did she wear THAT color?…why is she not smiling all the time? And when it came time for Cindy to take the stage at the RNC…well…that’s what she wore. That’s pretty badass.

I’m still on the fence in this election. I’m socially liberal and fiscally conservative. So I love and hate both candidates at the same time. They both excite and infuriate me. I’m wooed by the amazing rhetoric of Candidate A, and intrigued by the straight talk of Candidate B. I resent being told by Party A that we, as a country, are selfish, and I’m just flabbergasted by Party B’s choice of a VP.

But to be completely honest…the Dems put on a much nicer convention. Lighting, sets, speakers …better in every way. The RNC’s pretty boring.

Off to bed with me, where I’ll wonder about the best way to type the sound that the Jetson’s spaceships make. Brrbbrbrbrbbrbrr….pewbpewbpewb…

(aw, crud…the word “September” is too long for my date box! Must fix…)

Friday Five for August 22: Stupidity

OK..you caught me…it’s really Thursday. The Friday Five site publishes their questions early, so I figured I’d sleep in 10 more minutes tomorrow morning and do it tonight. Cheers!

Oh, this Friday Five was tailor-made for me! It’s called: Stupidity

1. What’s something really, really stupid you’ve done that could easily have resulted in your own death?
I’ve left candles burning in my apartment overnight and while I’m at work. I’ve also met numerous online people in person – nothing turned out badly (I vet people pretty well) but I’ve heard that sometimes online encounters go bad. ;)

2. What makes you feel stupid?
When I don’t get the whole story about something, either personal or work-related, then my lack of knowledge is put on full display when everyone around me knows everything.

3. What’s something that’s stupid in a very smart way?
Pari!s H!lt0n. She makes money being a stupid heiress.

4. What’s an example of a stupid idea working out in a way that solved a problem?
“Let’s just duct tape it back together!” Who’d have thunk that you could tape things like furniture, cars, appliances, etc, and they’d actually stay together?

5. There is apparently a brand of packaged popcorn called Smartfood. What might be found in the package labeled Stupidfood?
Cheese puffs. They’re radioactive orange, mostly air, and just a skosh of cheese. They’re addictive, so you can eat an entire bag at one sitting and get absolutely no value out of them whatsoever.

What a freaking nutty week. I’m still so very thankful the layoffs passed over me. Must have been the lamb’s blood I painted on my cube wall. ;) Of course, the rumor mill has started up already saying there will be more in December. Whatevs.

Wanna sneaky-peeky of my redesign?:

I’m writing this 99% from scratch, just lifting the WordPress tags from past templates and the Codex. It’s a hell of a challenge, especially continuously checking it in Firefox, IE, and Safari. My goal is to have it launch on September 1. Major challenges include: 1) How to get my sidebars to extend all the way down to the footer? 2) What to do with my HUGE list of links? 2) Re-re-recoding the hostess picture page, and 3) turning “Pets” into “Cast of Characters” page – because seriously, if you’re new to this site, how the heck will you know who WM, Coworker S, and BvP are? I’m proud of the little date block, which I saw on quite a few blogs but coded all by myself!
