My Feelings Today...

Michael Vick entered a plea deal today for illegal dogfighting and participating in executing at least 8 under performing dogs by hanging, drowning, and other means. I originally had Happy as my heading, but I don't feel exactly happy, maybe more like not super disappointed. I have this strange thing going on where I feel more empathy/sympathy for animals than humans. I guess with animals they're completely at our mercy in most cases. They want to be loved by their owners and people can kick them around and beat them and that animal still just wants to be played with and told that they're "a good boy/girl".

I feel pretty crabby today. I think I'm keeping it in pretty well because a couple people at work asked if I'm tired, because I seem really quiet. This could also be translated into "wow, you're not as obnoxious as usual". Part of how I can tell I'm crabby is that every time I want to punch someone in the face I start shoving high calorie objects in my mouth...brownie, chips, twizzlers off "A's" desk, etc. Normally when I feel like this I go directly home, plant myself on the couch, and strategize the most efficient way to get butter down my gullet (butter is my stress thing...usually I'll sneak some butter on popcorn...not the usual fake butter substitute crap we buy...REAL BUTTER). I'm trying something different today, I'm going to the gym instead.

Fred Thompson terrifies me. I guess not that he terrifies me, but that there's enough support of him and his beliefs in our country that he's considering entering the presidential race. His key points? He vows to do everything he can to ban abortion and get a Constitutional Amendment passed banning same sex marriage. Um, personally, I feel that we have bigger fish to fry in this country besides striving to take away rights of women and same sex couples. WAY BIGGER FISH...most of which is the wreckage of the current president that I dare not speak his name. I can tell that the current president isn't stellar because when I was talking with my dad last night, a proud republican, he didn't get upset when I called him "the devil" (the president, not my dad). So back to Thompson - I really have a hard time with his views and it makes me feel like we're never going to break free of judging and hate.

The Fiance and I are going kayaking in September. Nothing fancy, just going on the river for a day and staying in a cabin near Big Piney. We've both kayaked, but we want to do it more. If I were to include it in a 10-year plan, I would say that I'd like to have our own kayaks. I think we're both feeling a little old and tired. How is that possible - we're in our 30's? I think we just need to get out and do new things.
