How I Fill With Rage
I don't have anything articulate to say about the RNC because my disgust binds my tongue. Maureen Dowd will have to serve as my mouthpiece.

Mode: glowering
Muse: Still - Macy Gray - On How Life Is

She'll have to speak for me as well.

Then again, we're supposed to be the ones with something to say, right? But how am I supposed to have something to say if I can't even listen to the RNC and the speeches. I can't even read that many articles about it without wanting to crawl into a hole and hide until after the election.

I'm feeling a bit spoiled. I've never quite so consciously lived through an election that is so vicious, so much about the people and so little about the issues.

When I think about it, I worry that, after watching this election, the Canadian political parties will decide to follow suit and stop talking about the issues. The rest of the time, I worry even more that all of these tactics and nowhere-near-fine shaving of the truth will serve too many people better than the truth ever did. If that happens, then the Republicans have won and we are lost.

Those are my fears, too. It's not like I didn't expect it. But the ugliness of it all is overwhelming.

BTW, are you and Jo alright? There haven't been many entries of late.

That's a good word for this: "ugliness". Thank you.

We're mostly doing okay. Tired, always tired, and always too much to do. Working full-time in corporate Amerika and trying to have a life as well as doing Bad Subjects can be overwhelming, even without the political crap-fest.

The Bad Subjects web stuff is eating up more and more of my free time. I worry that the site will be sent live as soon as the content is converted and no-one will worry about making sure that everything is working properly.

Other than that, we're picking up the pieces of our recently-separate lives and trying to knit them together again. That takes time and energy as well.

And on the other other side, I did manage to find time to come up with a bare outline of a novel, plus a completed prologue and first chapter. Now I just have to find some spaces where I can squeeze out the time to write the rest.

How're you guys holding on?
