A. I don't know if it's a popularity contest, but there is a sense that that president, at some point, has to somehow be no better than us. Much of the campaign is, "Put on this jean shirt, roll it up. I know it gives you hives! Just put it on! Get out there and tell the guy in the Dunkin' Donuts you're fightin' for him." And so a lot of their plea is, "I'm just like you." And you just wanna say, "Really? You watch 10 hours of TV a day? 'Cause it seems like you got a country to run."
last night, i went to tres ambiance, and had 10" cut off my hair, to donate to locks of love. i'm still adjusting to the change, but overall, i'm happy i did it. i think i'll keep it short for a while, although maybe have it a bit longer than present - in order to cut 10" and re-shape, it's just above my shoulders, and maybe a bit longer will be good.....
i also went to the YMCA to sign up (finally!). i'd been meaning to get there ever since i quit smoking, all in part to just be healthier and more active. i'm fairly lucky that i'm pretty small in stature, but i know i've gained weight after quitting smoking and after years of sitting on my butt all day in an office. it's funny, it seems so many people get crazed to start working out before summer starts, and here i am, a few days before labor day, getting my butt in gear.
better late than never! that's my (slacker) motto, for sure.
