if you want to be the future president of the united states, you have to be able to write a book. that seems to be the new litmus test following the legacy of george w. a bunch of democratic candidates have thrown their hat into the ring. as much i am a fan of bill clinton, i can't see myself voting for hillary. she seems too calculating, too fake, like her every move is to get one step closer to the oval office. it seems like the perfect president is somebody who's reluctantly pulled to the job (i keep on thinking about that kevin kline movie dave ). i like john edwards, he seems like a genuinely nice guy who cares about normal people, and i voted for him and kerry back in 2004. i like obama too, but the question of is he qualified enough to run will dog him. my dream is to one day see the both of them president at some point.
i seemed to have caught a cold and there can only be so many potential places where i might've contracted it. working from home, i almost never get sick, but i woke up this morning sneezing and with a slightly runny nose. i don't have any other symptoms but i do feel runned down, which could just be because it's monday and it's cold. since i don't often get sick, i almost look forward to it in some strange way, as long as the symptoms are minor. viruses let my immune system go to work and build up helpful antibodies to protect me from further diseases in the future. back to work, the delivery i promised for friday i was finally able to upload today. soaking up that temporary post-delivery high, i spent the rest of the evening properly hydrating myself and having ramen for dinner.
