on the debate and the day and the cats and a dog?

the debate last night did nothing to allay my fears about Romney. instead, it gave him the opportunity to show off what a real misogynist he is. it isn't his fault. it's the church. generations of the church. and coming from a polygamist family where the women were even more oppressed, forced to share one person for love and spiritual growth.

my primary fear is, what if he really wins? unless the senate and house go full democrat, there is no way i can let a man like romney rule my life and dictate my rights. will i actually have to leave the country for four years? or, fates help us, 8? it really scares me. in my heart of hearts, i don't think he will win. i think obama will out, but not by much. i have a feeling the election will be hotly contested and very ugly. should obama win, republicans will never accept it. they are already questioning polls and making up lies about them because it isn't going their way. they remind me of a bunch of spoiled children. of course, the democrats remind me of a bullied child.

the sun is shining through Tony the Tree and dappling the couch and the sai sai. the leaves are waving in the breeze, which is coming in through the window. it is fucking beautiful. i mean it. really brilliant weather. i think i'll rake the pine needles in the back yard today and be out in the weather. it's only supposed to get up to the lower 80s today. it's 68 right now and like i said, amazing out. i love this house for it's large and plentiful windows. with the trees and the patio overhang, direct sunlight doesn't come in much. it all comes through filtered to a tolerable degree.

there are sleeping cats all over the place. simon is on the couch. i spoil him so much, today when i mixed lelu's food, i brought the fork to him to lick. instead of making him come to me. i couldn't help it, he looked so comfortable on the couch. he's really starting to take possession of the house. and it sounds much less like a coyote and snake pit in here when the cats are interacting with him. freddie still doesn't like him one bit and growls every time he passes. lelu growls when he gets too close to her. and felix, of course, growls when sai sai gets too close to me and felix is on my lap. sai sai and jack seem to play chase lately, so i'm encouraging that. jack is the most easy going and easiest to get along with. he'll be standoffish for a while, but will eventually find a playmate in the new cat.

i'm starting to seriously wonder what they would do with a dog around. just a small to medium sized dog. a shelter dog. no puppies. puppies suck. kittens are better than puppies and i'm no fan of them, either. i like my animals a bit more mature. but i'm thinking of getting doc a shelter dog for xmas this year. the yard is set up for it, some things would have to change with the proximity of the cat food to the floor, but these are easily solvable. doc misses having a dog, and he deserves one. he's tried very hard to be a cat person, and to a point he's been very good. but you should see his face when he encounters a dog. you can tell he goes all weak. it's time for him to have one. and if we have to, we'll save the money to pay the dog deposit here.

  • Tue, 17:26: doc says i'm paying for going out in the chill barefooted *achoo* and i am believing him. huddled around the space heater when it's 86 out.
  • Tue, 17:37: RT @michaelianblack: Good strategy to rattle Romney tonight: five minutes into the debate, Obama should walk over and lightly stroke Rom ...
  • Tue, 17:42: wouldn't it be great if #Romney actually fell off the bar stool?
  • Tue, 17:44: and when i say @maddow is dreamy, i mean her mind. i am in love with her brain.

gratuitous use of the word "fuck"

fuckin' nyquil man. i took it and was incoherent 15 minutes later. comatose most of the day. i woke up at 2 and had a smoke, but then went right back to sleep. i don't even remember what doc told me he wanted me to do today. i'll do whatever it is after he gets home. i still feel like shit. i'm waiting for sudafed to kick in. so i can breathe again. i never know whether to take that or mucinex d. doc had to sign his life away for the sudafed, so i guess i'll take it.

i let jack out today for a while. he somehow got out and into the front yard. i went around the side of the house and he was at the gate. i called him in and opened the gate for him, and he stubbornly jumped over the chicken wire. silly cat. we have this box in the kitchen. i have no idea what is in it, but the cats sleep on it so i leave it alone. jack has learned, with only two days of training, to jump up on the box to wait for his treat at feeding time. he's so bright.

we have this menagerie of stray cats that all kind of get along and are all very smart in their own ways. except maybe freddie, but she's still young. she's supposed to be stupid for a while. she did learn that "bop-bop" means "outside" and is granting her permission to go out. it's so cute. we tried to teach her "outside" but it didn't work, she just wouldn't take to the word. and she goes bop bop when she jumps outside, so that's what it became, and she learned it in two days.

candy crowley was brilliant last night at the debate. she didn't let either candidate bully her and she fact checked brilliantly at that one point. i really enjoyed the debate, no matter how creeped out by romney i got. i hope the third debate is just as good. the undecided voters were a real downer with their questions, though. "why should i vote for you in 2012?" jesus, that was a real question during a presidential debate? read something, bitch! other than the enquirer. listen to a fucking news cast. if you're this far along and that's the best question you can come up with, just don't fucking vote. you'll fuck it up anyway.
