Fever

Woke up this morning with what feels like a fever. Skylar woke up with what feels, to my hand, like more of one. That's pretty standard, from a post-operative standpoint, but still raises the anxiety level.

She slept well, though, with Kim in her room on the futon. I slept on the sofa, after falling asleep there, with the cats. By this morning, however, Thing One was stretched out on the floor outside Bean's door, waiting for his "mom" and "sister" to emerge.

Time to go teach, finish my APR, and write film notes for No Man's Land.

Gay Marriage

The pleasure I'm deriving -- thanks, Steven! -- from reading Bob Mould's blog derives, in part, from my love of his music, my love for what the love of Bob has meant for music. But he's also smart and interesting enough that the "celebrity" dimension is starting to recede into the background. Here's what he has to say about Republicans and the controversy brewing over gay marriage.

Goooooooooooooo. . .

Scream along with me:
You know it

You know the story

Tell the whole damn world

This is Bear territory

You know it

You know the story

Tell the whole damn world

This is Bear territory

Gooooooooooooo

Beeeearrrrrrrsss

My Ticket

A hearty welcome to Catfish Vegas, with whom I have consorted in music and literature-related activities on a number of occasions, most memorably during the Okkervil River "after party" at his house.

And thanks to him for pointing me towards the useful President Match poll. Here are my results, in order of preference, based upon my responses to a series of questions:
1) Kucinich Score: 100%
Party  Democrat
Has Held Elected Office  Yes
Served in the Military  No
 
2) Sharpton Score: 93%
Party  Democrat
Has Held Elected Office  No
Served in the Military  No
 
3) Kerry Score: 93%
Party  Democrat
Has Held Elected Office  Yes
Served in the Military  Yes
 
4) Dean Score: 85%
Party  Democrat
Has Held Elected Office  Yes
Served in the Military  No
 
5) Clark Score: 84%
Party  Democrat
Has Held Elected Office  No
Served in the Military  Yes
 
6) Edwards Score: 80%
Party  Democrat
Has Held Elected Office  Yes
Served in the Military  No
 
7)  Bush Score: 7%
Party  Republican
Has Held Elected Office  Yes
Served in the Military  Yes
Yes, I'm endorsing the Kucinich-Sharpton ticket!

Seriously, it's striking how much the people I talk to detest the present Administration. It's so intense that we need a new word for the feeling. "Hate", "detest", "loathe" -- these words are a little too soft and flowery.

In the meantime, another cheer of "Go Bears!!!" is in order. . .
