Monday is better than Sunday

I'd be appalled at Arnold Schwarzenegger's "girlie men" speech, but I'm still too busy being appalled that the SoB was elected Governor of California in the first frelling place. You get what you pay for. Or, in this case, what you vote for (assuming there's a difference). I might, however, have the ability to be appalled — or at least amused — at the idiots who are appalled that Schwarzenegger isn't sorry for what he said.

I'm trying hard to ignore the news these days. The Schwarzenegger thing was a headline at AOL, which I use for its ftp programme, so I saw it and was "compelled" to read the article.

I suppose this will be short. There's really nothing to say. Yesterday I gamed from 2 p.m. until 11 p.m. (with some Thai take-out thrown in). Then I came home, and Spooky and I watched another episode of the second season of Six Feet Under. Then I brushed my teeth and went to bed.

Today, we proofread The Dry Salvages, and I'm going to try to have time to go over "The Pearl Diver" again. And I need to send it off to two or three people, to get opinions that I will most likely summarily ignore. But. As for The Dry Salvages, I think I'm very proud of this book. I was this proud of Low Red Moon, though no one much seemed to care. Once I'm done with Daughter of Hounds, I think that The Dry Salvages might be the direction that I'd like to see my work go.

And that's it for today. Don't forget the eBay auctions. Drive safely. Mind the gap.

Oh, I almost forgot. My thanks to Quendi (Meh'dra) for the following shot of Chiana from Farscape: The Peacekeeper Wars. I have no idea what's up with Chi's eyes.

I'd give California my condolences for Arnie, but hey, they voted Gray out and him in. Like you said--you get what you vote for.

Please remember that not all of us voted Gray out OR Arnie in.

What was the speech? I can't find it on the internet..

Thanks for the link.

mmm. That kind of posturing may be fine for Hollywood, but doesn't go over too well in the real world, I think. Though a lot of politics *is* showbiz.. there are real live people who will trounce him for stepping across certain lines. He makes himself look like a schoolyard thug. He should've gone into pro wrestling, maybe?

Even Jessie Ventura--who was a pro wrestler--had more tact as a governor than Schwarzenegger does. Ug.

I really, really hope that he isn't re-elected. I don't think I can handle more than one term of his homophobic, misogynistic, idiocy.

Maybe she's having eye doc problems too?

As for da Schwarz, who cares? This is a non-story. I hate these stories; I'd rather read about how much money is going to our schools than what an idiot pol says. I really detest when the media pulls stunts like this.

But, having said all that, if being a liberal Democrat means that I'm a girlie-man, pass the lipstick and find me a big-and-tall store for some lacy unmentionables. I'd rather be a girlie-man than a bigoted idiot destroying the greatest experiment in democracy in recorded human history.
