It's rough at there right now, eh? I don't know about you, but I am so worn out from election talk that I can hardly think about it anymore. Or at least I wish I could not think about it anymore. Sadly it is EVERYWHERE. The worst part is not our candidates (although, I think we can agree they are not the greatest), the worst part is how we are speaking to each other and behaving online...and lots of times, in person. Guys! Cut it out!!! Let's focus on real problems.
Like scary clowns.
I'm sorry. I can't even take them seriously. If a clown tried to rob me I would be laughing too hard, I would offer them my therapist phone number, because honestly, if that's the best you can do as a criminal...
Anyhow...I don't know why, but this made me laugh.
Let's all try to cheer up, K?

Being introverted is not the same thing as being shy. I can talk to people, small talk or big talk. I'm a talker. I don't want stay at home all the time, in fact, sometimes I LIKE to go out. Introversion is not agoraphobia. BUT, I need to know that there's going to be an end to the work day, the party, or the conversation, and when that end comes, I need to be able to be alone for a while. Maybe I'll read a book, or watch TV, or relive every single word I said while I was out in the world acting normal. It doesn't matter, what matters is that I get that time alone.
Ahem...I found this in my draft folder. It was obviously written a couple of months ago, before our vacation, but I wanted to post it anyway since this is my journal and I hate forgetting things. I don't want to spoil the ending, but our vacation was JUST FINE...better than fine. It was dandy. And I am feeling much less stressed. Today. That comes and goes, but what are you gonna do, right?

We interrupt this terribly fascinating travelogue for a short rant about sexism.
Last night Sylvan & I went to the movies. Before the previews they played this...
OMG, Seriously!?! I was so mad. I started giving Sylvan a lecture about not wanting our daughter...or anyone's daughter to think they need to trim anything down there, especially into the shape of a heart...AND ALSO... where are the commercials giving BOYS suggestions of what shapes to use if and when they groom their bushes????
There are SO many things wrong with this ad.
I was whispering so loudly that I think he was a little embarrassed, but I don't care. Society's expectations of girls...good grief.
Excuse me. I have to go send an email to the idiots at Schick.

This was taken right after we got in the car. 20 minutes later they turned into 3 year olds who were touching each other and complaining about my choice in music.
