Fourth of July, 2007… Independence = Freedom, Freedom = Not Incarcerated? So I guess Bush was just wishing Scooter Libby a Happy Independence Day, yeah? I like that. Bush and his cronies have the freedom to do whatever they want, and we have the freedom to … bend over I guess. Hubby says I should stop moaning about it and work for change if it upsets me so much. I say that’s an awfully good idea, but since i feel helpless to do anything meaningful there, I’m just gonna keep bitching about it to you all. Actually, I decided that someone’s xanga about the length of time that this government is in existence is not even the blink of an eye in the scheme of eternity was right, and that instead of 1) bitching helplessly or 2) working uselessly to change the government, I would 3) do what i can to ease the suffering of those around me who are hurt by this government. I mean, something I actually have the power to do instead of being powerless.
But that’s not what i got on here to talk about. Probably more interesting than my intended post which was…. Fourth of July… we did nothing festive, but we played our computer games and watched movies and didn’t cook or do chores, so all in all a good day. Watched Close Encounters of the Third Kind on Comcast’s On Demand service. It was like watching a new movie it had been so long since I’d seen it. I’d completely forgotten the plot other than “guy sees UFO, goes a little nutty with mashed potatoes and clay trying to make a replica of some mountain, a series of musical tones that i DID remember (amazing) and some aliens and a spaceship at the end.” So really, it was a new movie for me. Very enjoyable I must say. Also watched Only the Lonely with John Candy, Maureen O’Hara, Ally Sheedy, and Jim Belushi. Don’t normally like John Candy movies, but it was pretty good. John Candy was the normal person for once. That’s probably why i liked it.
Power just blipped at work, UPS beeping, shutting down now bye!
