Last night I had some kind of mental shift. Had been feeling a bit out of sorts. Dark days, cold, trapped indoors, same shit every day blues. You know what I mean. Will I be able to find a job this year? Will it be as horrible as I imagine it will be? Will our oil and electricity bill become so expensive our house will form icicles around the windows?
Yesterday was a happy day in Baltimore. President-elect Barack Obama and his lovely wife Michelle breezed through a freezing-cold town around 4p.m. There was a part of me that entertained the idea of going downtown to see them, but I thought better of it. I don’t do well with large crowds. Hell, I don’t do well with medium or even small-ish crowds. There were supposedly 40,000 people outside in the freezing cold wanting to be a part of his coming to town. That’s a lot of peeps for a town this size. But everyone kept moving and hardly anyone was hurt from the cold. Baltimore needed a proper visitation from the good, new President and First-Lady. What is gonna happen when I don’t hate the person in the White House? I am not familiar with this concept.
Oh yeah, so last night after the first episode of the Battlestar Galactica bender hubbo and I have embarked on, I realized I actually liked him better when we were watching BG rather than Rome. The new/old serial drama really put me in a better frame of mind toward everything. He seems nicer, food tastes better, possibilities are more vast… have I gone mad? Possibly it is the incoming Obama administration that has made things positive. Or just the wild chemical shifts in my brain. If this is crazy, I don’t want any part of sane.
How can I get in touch with Michelle Obama? I would really enjoy working with her. She gets to hire her own staff, no? I am sure she could use a part-time, stay at home mama, who likes to make art and music, who enjoys writing and photography. Three days a week, with lots of pay. I have a good record, I suppose. No felonies. I am honest, hard working. Michelle, if you see this note, give me a call. Post a comment and we’ll connect via another, less public platform. Welcome to the D.C. corridor! Welcome to you all!!!
