this morning was pure schadenfreude as indictments were brought up against lewis "scooter" libby for perjury, obstruction of justice, and making false statements. what's bad for the administration is good for me and my ilk, and it's been a great few weeks. we've got indictments, failed supreme court nominee, dissension within the republican party, 2000th american death milestone in iraq, delay's dirty money, frist's insider-trading investigation, cindy shehan campout, rising oil prices, and waves upon waves of hurricane disasters. i almost feel sorry for bush and company, i really do. it's exciting to be living in interesting times, who needs movies when i can turn on the daily news and catch all this great drama?
other than the news in washington, my day came and went without a hitch. for lunch i had some jalapeno poppers, and i basically stayed in my room the whole day, working on my project at my usual pace. sometimes i'd play with the scab forming on my back, tracing the edges of its scaly surface. maybe i could've gone out for a run, but with the temperature dropping (somewhere in the 40's), i got lazy and decided to just stay indoors. in the evening jawei and i had dinner at my parents' again before i drove us back to cambridge in a borrowed car. i continued working in my bedroom, this time on my own personal project, migrating my files over to the new server via ftp proxy.
