Aaaaah! I don't think I can take anymore of this irritating final projects preparation! I think my eyes are going to fall out of their sockets and my brain is going to ooze out of my ear!!!
Any vibes of strength and endurance sent my way will be much appreciated! It'll all be over on Friday!

His kind sense of humor and calm confidence were so inspiring and so comforting to me. I know he is enjoying being back with his wife and doing all sorts of great things for everyone on the other side. I just miss him is all. I miss a lot of people and things that have moved on whether it be through death or through the natural process of life and becoming adults. My friends, my family, I miss you.
My roommate stole the vacuum again. Who knows what she did with it. It isn't in her room and none of the other roommates have it. She acted awfully guilty about it when asked. I think she's a kleptomaniac. I have had to lock my door every time I leave my room. I can't wait till May. I gatta get out of here! I pray I pass all my classes so that can happen!
Finals are due next week!!!! So needless to say, it is not going to be much of a holiday this week. Daaaahhh!!! Oh well.

Went on a fun date with PJ tonight. We went and saw "City of Ember". It was funny- we were the only ones in the theater. It was a good movie, but I see why it wasn't very popular. It was a bit slow moving and the stupidity of the characters annoyed both PJ and myself.
The point is that it was so fun to actually get asked out on a real date where my date actually paid for the entertainment... phenomenal. Lol. Sometimes I feel like I'm stuck in some underground world where all the men have forgotten what it is they're supposed to do.
I.E: ask girls on real dates, open doors, say nice things. And maybe girls have forgotten that we're supposed to dress up, try to look cute, say nice things, give good back rubs... be independent enough.... Hmmm... what else is expected of us? I am sure I am missing a large list, but I think I'm going to cut it short and go to bed for now.

The other day I went downtown to run a few errands.
I went into the local coffee shop for a snack.
I was only there for about 5 minutes, and when I came out, there was this cop writing out a parking ticket.
I said to him, 'Come on, man, how about giving a retired person a break'?
He ignored me and continued writing the ticket. His insensitivity annoyed me, so I called him a 'Nazi.'
He glared at me and then wrote out another ticket for having worn tires.
So I proceeded to call him a 'doghnut eating Gestapo.' He finished the second ticket and put it on the windshield with the first. Then he wrote a third ticket when I called him a moron in blue. This went on for about 20 minutes.
The more I talked back to him the more tickets he wrote.
Personally, I didn't really care. I came downtown on the bus, and the car that he was putting the tickets on had one of those bumper stickers that said, 'McCain 08.'
I try to have a little fun each day now that I'm retired.

Lol! As you can see, Halloween has taken its toll on my roommate Monica. Actually, she sleeps on the couch more often than she sleeps in her bed. It matters not that the rest of us roommates are bustling about the kitchen or vacuuming, She sleeps through any of it! When asked if she wouldn't rather go to her room so as not to be disturbed by the noise, she says, "I don't want to get up." I think the reason she doesn't sleep in her room is this....
She can't get to her bed! Yes, this morning since it is nearly 1:30 and she's still snoring away loudly in the living room, I kicked open her door to discover why she couldn't sleep in her own bed. I think she can't get to it. What a MESS!!! I noted also the location of most of the dishes in the house is in here. I was wondering where all my cooking pans went. I am going to make her bring them back to us later if I can get her to. Oh the joys of living with teenagers.
As for those of you who have criticized me for who I voted for... come on, I didn't give you a hard time for who you are voting for. I didn't just wake up one morning and decide who I was voting for, I have been researching the candidates for MONTHS! I have listened to both of them in their speaches, I have read policies that BOTH of them have suggested. I have prayed about my decision.
I like some of what McCain has to offer, but I like what Obama has proposed better. I think you are wrong about the socialist thing. The media has said things about that once or twice, but I've looked into it, because it did concern me... and if you go and you read his policies and not what other people are saying about his policies, I think you'll see that he's not a socialist.
I could go on and on, but let it suffice. It's much safer to remain neutral, but at some point in my life I have to take a stand and decide what I believe in even if it isn't popular. If I'm wrong and we all end up in Socialism, then you can call me and tell me it was all my fault. Anyway, I still love you all and I think things will be okay no matter which candidate gets elected.
