running mate
so john mccain has picked a woman as his running mate (sarah palin from alaska). surely the pick is not due to her experience since she has been in office less than two years. all we have heard from mccain for months is how obama does not have enough experience to be president, i guess you don't need any experience to be the vice president. is mccain just assuming that everyone who backed hillary will now back him because of his choice for v.p.? God help us if that happens.

obama just finished giving his acceptance speech, and he nailed it. i actually get shivers when he speaks, probably because he doesn't speak down to his audience. i found myself cheering, clapping, crying, i felt total elation. obama brought up the fact that he understands how the people feel that are having a hard time paying their bills and putting food on the table because that is where he came from. thinking back, how long has it been since there has been a president that didn't come from a wealthy family? i certainly can't remember. after tonights speech there should be no doubt any longer for anyone who calls themselves a democrat, if there is they must not have heard a word he said. these words spoken by obama tonight will be remembered for a very long time, "there is no blue america, there is no red america, we have only the united states of america".

"no way..."
normally i do not watch speeches on tv because i find them boring but after watching michelle obama the other night, i decided to watch hillary clinton last night. there were two things in particular that she said that really hit me. when she spoke of her staff and her supporters she referred to the "sisterhood of the traveling pant suits" and when she started to talk about john mccain she said, "no way, no how, no mccain". i can honestly say that i enjoyed her speech but there is one thing that i saw last night that really bugged me; the old lady delegate who said before the speech that she would only back obama if hillary told her to. since when, if you are registered as a democrat and truly are a democrat, would you not vote for the democratic candidate or vote a republican into office because you don't like the color of the others skin, his running mate, know enough about him, etc. for God sakes people this is the 21st century, wake up and smell the roses, we cannot afford another four years of bush like leadership.

i'm back!
got back yesterday afternoon and i feel like it might take a few days to recoup. had a fabulous time, ate like a horse, drank like a small fish and still managed to lose one pound! after a fabulous trip i have only one request...someone hold the room still! will post pics when i get a chance.

and here is todays horoscope.....Cancer

Even though you might have to work today, dear Cancer, you should still try and take things fairly easy. You are just not ready to embrace your workload with your usual vigor. Be sure to eat a healthy breakfast and lunch, as your body may be rebelling from some recent indulgences. Soup and a salad are advisable for lunch, along with plenty of water. By day's end, you will feel your energy begin to return.

just another saturday night
last night i went out with my friend tracy. we really enjoy having a night out to listen to music and having a couple of drinks. last night was the night to try something new so we headed to red rock station to hear a band called zowie bowie; it consists of a too tanned man with bleached blond hair and his wife who has what i am assuming are too expensive boobs along with a 10 piece band. they start off with music from "old vegas" like sinatra, sammy davis jr, etc. once the first set is done they come back on stage doing way too loud hip hop. half way through my second glass of wine i saw a very good looking man walk in and just stand facing the stage. tracy saw him too and we just kind of looked at each other and smiled. after a few minutes it was obvious that tracy and i were both in the mood to dance so i took off to talk to the good looker. it turned out that he was there by himself so i introduced myself and told him where we were sitting if he wanted to dance. i thought tracy was going to scream when i told her what i had done but within about ten minutes here he was at our table and asking us to dance! it turns out that randy was quite the gentleman and a good dancer as well as a police officer.

i read this and my first thought was, "and they do what kind of drugs?". I was very saddened to hear of his death, as i would be when any one dies, and while i believe that every one has the right to his or her own beliefs, i find this REALLY hard to swallow.

latest update
i was right on monday (8/4/08) when i said that mr e-Harmony reminded me of my last love. this morning i had a notice that he has closed communications citing, "i am taking a break from dating". this is probably a good thing since he obviously doesn't have the time to be bothered (even though he wanted to meet and have lunch last weekend). although he obviously owed me nothing it sure would have been more polite for him to send an e-mail through the E-harmony system either last weekend or just after instead of simply posting a pre-written comment. MEN SUCK

ode to k-mart
my oldest dog (banjo) takes medication for his blood pressure. the last time i needed his rx filled, the vet was out of the dosage i usually get (it had been on back order for about 4 weeks) and so i took the higher dose and had to cut the small pill into four pieces (usually ending up with 2 or 3 actually pieces and some powder).

i called for another refill this morning only to find out that they do not have the 2.5 mg pills in stock. i asked the vet tech to fax me a prescription for the 2.5 mg tablet and i took it to k-mart to have it filled (thank you kathryn for knowing i could do this). the vet charges me $19.90 plus tax for 60 pills and i just got the same amount from k-mart for $15.00 no tax. such a deal!

another update
i received a call saturday afternoon from the security guard, he wanted to get together and hang out, while i was very temped, i did not go. he has two small pieces of baggage that i am just not interested in getting involved with. as for mr. e-Harmony, i guess he must be like the lover boy i finally said goodbye to a while back; he never called or e-mailed, therefore, no lunch.

i just heard the perfect love song on the radio and it brought tears to my eyes, i guess no matter how i try to not remember i just can't help remembering the good times four years brought me! now i need to hear a song to make me remember why i said goodbye.
