Would You Like A Side of Politics with Your Toast?

I have something embarrassing to tell you. But because we are all friends, I know that you won’t judge me. As you probably already know, Pat works from a home office. It is upstairs. And for those of you who have a two-story home you’re already aware that it takes a great deal of energy to walk up stairs. You have to pick up your foot extra-high and repeat it at least 14 times, I mean, who has the time for that? So, what I end up doing is ichatting him when I need to ask him something, yes, I ichat my husband when he is just UPSTAIRS! We’re both in front of our computers, I figure, why the heck not? Here is a small excerpt from our morning conversation:

Me: Do you think I can get Gloria Estefan’s “Turn the Beat Around” for my ring tone?

Him: Maybe

Me: I want the part where she says “rat-tat-tat-tat-tat-tat-tat on the drum….heyeehhyeeayhhea!!”
But only when you call.

Him: No. I refuse.

Me: And then when my mom calls I want “Hips Don’t Lie” by Sharkira

Me: Then when my brother calls I want a song by John Tesh, I don’t care which one.

Him: I’ll see what I can do.

Me: Thanks a bunch. Hey what are you doing right now?

Him: I’m trying to figure out who I should vote for.

Me: Oooh.

Him: My dilemma is: should be voting for who will benefit ME the most, or who will be best for MOST?

Me: I think you have to go with the best person for the job. and who is going to help our country the most. You have to go a step above being selfish.

Him: Yeah, but I find it to be such a selfish process; Who aligns with what I think?
Who will benefit me the most? Those are the questions it seems like everyone is asking.
Not that that isn’t ok, just interesting to consider. I have trouble with the main difference between democrats and republicans; less government vs. more government–Is the government the solution to helping poor people?

Me: I don’t know. I feel that I am ill-equipped for this conversation. But what I do know is I had a slice of sourdough toast for breakfast, and it was good. That, I can talk about.

Radiohead is one of my most favorite bands. They are always reinventing themselves and their music is so beautiful. As I’m sure you already know, they released In Rainbows recently, but they also released a second disc from In Rainbows that kicks a fair piece of ass as well. Please to be enjoyed:
