I don’t know how much longer I can handle this happiness and pride, how much longer I can walk around with this goofy grin, how much longer I can keep saying “president obama” and practically fainting at the taste of it on my tongue and lips.
this joy, so pure so unfettered, will end. I know it will. But for now, for this moment, it feels good, and I’m going to hold on to it as long as I can. I haven’t felt this way since… well maybe never. maybe just never. to everyone who voted: thank you.
on the disappointing side: alaska voted to keep a convicted felon in office? and that stupid house republican, what’s her face, the one who said those ridiculous things on TV? oh yeah, michele bachmann. she got reelected? embarrassing.
most disheartening of all, california (and arizona and florida) voting to ban gay marriage. A lot of other states have bans so I shouldn’t be surprised, but it bugs the shit out of me to have constitutions AMENDED for shite like this; amendments shouldn’t take away rights. thank god for massachusetts. and our decriminalizing of pot. woo!
in other news, I’ve been pretty sick the past few days, not with just my inoperable brain cancer but also with a stupid chest cold. bleah. Plus, I’ve developed some weird rash on my neck that I am convinced is a symptom of a Serious Condition. I don’t know what condition, but it’s serious! some very rare, deadly disease I’ve contracted, probably on the train. the rash is all red and blotchy and itchy. I am very worried about it. I wasn’t worried before, but I am now.
and that’s because I read on the dayquil bottle, “Stop use and ask a doctor if cough comes back, or occurs with rash or headache that lasts. These could be signs of a serious condition.” A SERIOUS CONDITION. Their words, not mine.
should a bottle of medicine be allowed to do that? just say off-the-cuff stuff like “an accompanying rash is a sign of a serious condition” and leave it at that? what kind of condition? how serious? what kind of rash? where? I’ve had a headache my whole life. is that the kind of headache that you mean by “headache that lasts”? “stop use and ask a doctor” is very unhelpful. stupid proctor & gamble, with their warnings and indications. look what you’re doing to me. just look!
- oh my sweet america.
- OMG. I have meningitis.
