i immediately went to the supermarket when i got home. julie wasn't able to come by for our usual tuesday night dinner and television (too busy with work), but i still made something anyway, old habits are hard to break. there was a sale on grapes and i tasted one to see if they were sweet or not. "i wanted to do that, but since you were standing there, i was afraid to," the woman next to me confessed. "sometimes you just have to find out," i told her, then bought a bag. i made some tacos and sliced up that canteloupe that'd been sitting on the counter for two weeks before it went bad (actually it did go bad, i had to surgically remove some spoiled areas). i alternated between the primary converage and 24. who else thinks the show has jumped the shark with chloe's baby? my television dinner was interrupted by a knock on my door. i went out to see my upstairs neighbor steve and my next door neighbor renee. "sorry to disturb you," she said with a smile, "but do you know anything about locks?" she asked. apparently she's got one of those bathroom doors that lock from the inside, and her son locked it and closed it and now she can't get into the bathroom, so she first asked steve if he knew anything (they tried to pick it with a paperclip), and now she was asking me. i had no idea, so she went across the street to ask our neighbor jeff. later in the evening, i saw the flashing of a fire truck parked outside, two firemen in full gear going into her house. i hope they don't use the axe.
julie did come by later in the evening, she said there was a new episode of queer eye, but turns out it was yet another repeat, the model dad with the long hair. to be honest, queer eye is so yesterday, the novelty has totally worn off for me. law & order: special victims unit is a much better show, which was exactly what we ended up watching, a crazy episode about a brother and sister couple sleeping together because they didn't know they were related (complicated by the fact that she was found dead and pregnant with a child of incest). jane seymour guest starred as a socialite mother. julie and i ate cappuchino klondike bars for dessert and later she continued to try and convince me that the new entourage e-mail application in microsoft office 2004 for OS X is supercool, despite the fact that i like using apple mail just fine.
john kerry wins virginia and tennessee, and wesley clark has opted to drop out of the race with an announcement in his home state tomorrow. it looks all but certain that kerry will win the democratic nomination. my only regret is that when massachusetts has its primary next month, my vote won't really make a difference because kerry will probably have everything locked up. even though i intend to vote for kerry in the presidential race, i might vote for clark in the primary even though he's out of the contest. all this race for the white house is very exciting. i find myself watching the news more than anything else nowadays. it bothers me that america is so split down the middle. by the very nature of the controversial way he became president, george bush has done nothing to mend our country but instead america is eve more divided between the liberals and the conservatives. i was reading some conservative GOP website earlier, and it's scary how rabid these people are in their defense of bush and their attack of kerry and the other democratic candidates. i don't have any friends who are bush supporters, but i love to meet them, just so i can hear their reasoning. i like to think i vote for the best interest of the country and not because i support one party or another. right now i think anyone would be better than bush. i'd love to see a president for a change that's beloved by everyone, but you know, even washington had his critics.
