Presidential Election 2008

What a historical time!!

This is totally something that I'll be reliving years from now when we tell our unborn child about this historical time. The 2008 presidential race is close and I am both pleased and excited to see how it is unfolding but this isn't a post about who I voted to be president it is about how historical this time is. The desire and hope for change has crossed party lines, racial lines, gender lines and has made me very proud to be an American. One way or the other this is a historical time, we'll either have our first African American president or we'll have our first female vice president come 2009. That is a very cool, very historical thing and we all got to take part in it! I am also...

Damn fleas and forgetfulness… Random musings.

Yesterday after passing out at the doctors office and spending the rest of my day in bed I was kept company by my 4 indoor cats and a lone flea. Yep, was just laying in bed resting and the thing was jumping around on my arm. I hate bugs in my house. They make me crazy! Our neighbors warned that fleas were big here and that we needed to get treatment for our outdoor pets in order to avoid major infestation. Unfortunately we weren't quick enough and now the indoor cats have a few fleas that were tracked in by Dixie. It is time for a flea battle now! We got the liquid stuff you put on the animals and we are treating the carpets and linens too. Good times! Also, I made...

On Halloween we got legally married and voted.

While walking in to the courthouse this morning to be legally married we realized that we were being married on Halloween. Everyone was walking around all decked out in full costume. We didn't realize we were scheduled to be married on Halloween until we were walking in the courthouse doors and noticing all the dressed up people. At 9:45 am we were married on paper and official for the insurance that kicks in tomorrow, November 1st. Talk about cutting it close huh? Now our documents are official and our unborn child will have access to prenatal care through N's insurance. We don't see ourselves as husband and wife though and I wont be changing my name until we have our actual wedding with the family and friends after the baby is...

On politicians and real life…

Guess who The Secret Service just cleared to interview Sarah Palin?. She was attending a rally in Jeffersonville on the 29th according to this article and the plan was for him to interview her at the airport in the afternoon of the 29th. When he found out his first reaction was, "How am I going to keep from laughing through the entire interview?". We are not fans of hers if you can't tell. I said he could chew the inside of his cheek or pinch himself to inflict some pain and keep him from laughing in her face. This whole presidential election has provided us with a few eye opening experiences. For example, when we lived in Flagstaff, AZ a few months ago N was often set to interview John McCain. Funny...

The Celebrity Ads, what are your thoughts?

It seems everyone but Britney Spears has responded to McCain's petty celebrity ad! When Paris Hilton responded it was funny but now that Obama has responded I am not sure what I think. I mean there are too many other important issues to focus on right now and all we can dwell on is the celebrity ads. I have already made up my mind about the candidates but isn't this petty stuff just ridiculous? What are your thoughts on it all? Here are the videos in case you missed them, though I doubt you did. See Paris Hilton Responds to McCain Ad and more funny videos on FunnyOrDie.comSee more funny videos at Funny or Die ...
