what a miserable day, cold and wet. i stayed in my bedroom most of the day, letting my monitor and body heat warm up the small confines of my home office. generous amounts of ginger tea helped as well. days like this makes me regret turning off my heat, but with 2 weeks until june, it's the principle that counts. that didn't stop the room temperature to drop to 58 degrees though. for lunch i made some mini-omelettes with the GT xpress. i did some work for client S and spent the rest of the day watching the da vinci code. i crawled into bed and fell asleep in the early evening, waking up around 9pm to make some rice noodle for dinner.
i've been thinking about politics a lot these days. a few weeks ago i watched the bill moyer documentary, "buying the war," and yesterday i read a great essay by chalmers johnson about the american empire. i see the recent slew of presidential candidates, and i don't like any of them (republican ron paul seems interesting though, but he's getting zero televised coverage and most of it cast him as an insignificant player). i think even with a democratic president, it's still not going to fix a lot of wrongs with the government. i already see it with the democratic majority congress, that there's still a lot of mutual back-scratching politics. everyday there's more bad news about the war, yet the administration still seems to be in mind-boggling denial. i wish one of the major news networks would step up and confront the president regardless of the windfall. why can't we impeach? it's the least we can do, since there really should be a war crime tribunal for this current administration.
