Working Hard, not Hardly Working

There's so much going on in the world right now that I hardly have the time to comment on it all. The Bush Administration is crumbling around Dick Cheney. Luckily, Bush hasn't really had enough to do with it to warrant any sort of criminal investigation.

The Supreme Court has finally upheld a ruling on the way Bush and his cronies have (mis)treated the environment. I bet Robert F. Kennedy is throwing a Happy Fit somewhere still, even a few days after the fact.

Alberto Gonzales and Karl Rove might be out of work this year (as if they've ever done any in the first place)! I'm on fire tonight!

I have no joke for the Pat Tillman thing. It's just sad that he died in Friendly Fire, which, according to David Cross, is the most unfortunate euphemism. I agree.

But yeah, there's a lot going on, to say the least. I'm not positive about this, I'm really not. It's a shame that the office of the president has been sullied like this. But do any of you get the feeling that the bully's secret is finally out? Like, it's been revealed that the one kid in school who always made everyone else feel stupid can't read, or something?

Phew. For a long time there, I thought this administration was bulletproof. I'm glad/not glad that it's not.

What's confounding my sadness is that I'm reading a book called The Price of Loyalty. It's about the Bush Cabal, starting with its inception in 2000. Gosh! We had such a great f*cking chance to save Social Security, change the tax system, fund education, give a 1 trillion dollar tax cut, and then have some money left over. Oh, Jesus, that makes me so mad/sad/cynical.

So that's what I'm going through right now. I know I promised that I wouldn't talk politics as much, but this just had to be said.

Oh, but on a lighter note, I'm 140 pages - or 42,000 words - into the third book. I'm going to attempt to have it done by the end of the month. I've been pacing myself at 2,500 words a day. That's 75,000 words a month, or nearly an entire novel a month. If I could write 6 books this year, I'd be stoked.

But anyway. I hope you all are doing well.


  1. And I'm proud of myself when I write one page in a day! Double spaced! With big margins!

  2. About the bulley's secret and the bullet proof administration? That is EXACTLY how I feel about it.
