Wacky lady and other observations

Riding the Metro the other day, to get to work, I was sitting in the handicap seats (hello I have a cast on my foot, oh yay did I mention I broke a bone in my left foot). This lady gets on the train and stands immediately right in front of me, facing me - though there was space to stand in the middle of train. If I had stood up this lady and I would have been kissing! Has she never heard of personal space? Sheesh!

Why John Edwards? Because I voted for him in 2004 (primaries), LOVE that he has apologized for voting for the war (owing up to his mistakes), pro-union, working for universal health care, pro-choice, not a religious fanatic, intelligent, funny, and in my opinion the best bet to win the nation-wide election.

Commuting to Richmond (two hours away from DC) on Tuesdays and Thursday's for class - why are people such stupid drivers? IQ testing as part of the driving certificate now!!

Speaking of class....I'm not enjoying some of my classmates - the course is taught in the Socrates method (question & response, not lectures). A few of the students, who work in finance (ahem unfair advantage) are always dropping acroynms and instead of being supportive, work to tear down those of us who don't understand. I HATE BEING MADE TO FEEL INFERIOR - f&$# you I say to those classmates, I'm not dumb I just don't do math that fast, super you're great at math, but you're probably crap at something else.

It's interesting, I went to P-'s wedding this past weekend. He and I had never met, only communicating via email. I was nervous to see him in person, what if it was akward, what if we had nothing to say once face to face? But no way!! - it was like we had been friends since childhood! I had a blast at his big day, will write more later.

Why do the same people who shop Wal-Mart (as Molly Malone says beating the crap out of their kid in the housecleaner's aisle) also fly Southwest? When did air travel go from glamorous to common?

Why is Elizabeth Hasselbeck a Republican? She's a young Anglo-Saxen Protestant, affluent, happily married with lots of opportunities in life handed to her without struggle - wait I just answered my question. PS I have no sympathy for her - because she supports a party that if you can't give empathy to your fellow human beings you can't expect it in return.

Pirates Three - better than Two but not as good as One, bittersweet ending.

YES on John Edwards! I am SO sick of Obama and Clinton, as great as they may be in their own right, getting so much attention because of their skin color and gender... yes, an advancement in some ways but yet sad as other worthy and amazing candidates are not getting the attention they deserve but yp, in our household our vote is with Edwards FO SHO!

As for that damn biatch Hasselbeck, she makes my skin crawl and I would just love to knock her one. Ugh!

Excuse me, I am suddenly nauseous...

Edwards is SO sexy, too.

Hasselbeck is so very annoying. You KNOW Rosie made her cry on a daily basis... she just reminds me of one of those people who gets so worked up and so angry, she can do little else BUT just sit and cry... ugh.

I'm with Miz BoheMia she really makes my skin crawl, too.

Occassionally I'll open the door to our waiting room and the two (unrelated) people waiting are siting side by side, with three other chairs empty. I alway wonder what made the second person who arrived sit so close to the first.

MizBohemia - oh lovely you are first!!! We are totally sisters, having the same Hasselback aversion, hee hee.

Rock on for supporting Edwards!!

Adorable Tony - Yes Edwards is definitely yummy on the eyes, hey I say if we have to see 'em for four years, might as well be good looking, hee hee.
I don't understand why she cried, if she felt her positions were just - why are you crying?

CS - It was weird what that lady did, I was confused as well. I should have asked seeing as how I'll probably never see her again in my life. (smile).
