You can say that, at least for today, I’m “up to here” with all the bs.
Look at it:
The 2-year long Presidential campaign is a thudding bore. No matter the facts, the media is intent on bringing about Obamatopia (Ed came up with Obamatopia). Hillary’s not throwing the towel until there’s blood on the Convention floor. McCain’s embraced global warming. Worst yet, there’s an excruciating five and a half more months of this stuff to endure, and then the politicians will start on the 2012 campaign.
Peachy, isn’t it? Just thinking about it makes you warm all over, doesn’t it?
Then you have four judges in California overturning the law and the statewide initiative approved by the voters in 2000 (both of which had defined marriage as limited to unions between a man and a woman). Reason enough for Baldilocks to leave California – but don’t come to New Jersey, Baldilocks, because where California goes, NJ follows. Forget about Seattle, too.
It’s enough to make a woman want to go out and buy some nice shoes to take her mind off things. Even today’s horoscope for Virgo says so:
Buy something that makes you feel stylish, now that the Moon is in your 2nd House of Self-Worth. Taking extra time to look good allows you to feel good, too. This can seem like a superficial indulgence, but when you see yourself in a more flattering light, you’re likely to be more confident on every level.
Since I only own one house, I’m not sure where my 2d House is, but shoes are always good retail therapy. All the same, you can be assured that my Self-Worth is doing very well, thank you.
