busier than expected

I forgot that the Commonwealth doesn't consider MLK Jr.'s birthday a holiday, so I was surprised to see my unemployment pay in the SunTrust account this morning. I spent most of it on my overdue cell phone bill and truck insurance, and held a little out for groceries and gas.

Desk chair broke another leg last night, even though I was trying to be careful. Not careful enough, evidently. Since I can't prop up my right leg properly while sitting in pkat's old drafting chair, it tends to swell up quickly, so I haven't been spending a lot of time online. Probably just as well; the current cash flow situation has me depressed enough already.

Mildly excited over the Scott Brown win in Massachusetts last night. Some Democrats seem to have gotten the message and are backing off the notion that they can go ahead and make the country safe for Socialism; unfortunately for the country (but fortunately for the GOP) the President doesn't seem to be one of those Democrats. Welp. We'll see what happens come November.

In the meantime, tomorrow's going to be a tad busy, what with going back to work in the morning for a few hours before heading off to the VA and then over to digex's warehouse to see if he has any chairs of bulk and definition that fit into/can be strapped to the top of the Toaster. Going to see if I can hit the rack early and not wake up at 0200 like I did this morning. Probably the only reason I'm awake now is that I napped during the third hour of Rush today. My, he was in a good mood. :)

From a very liberal friend of mine in Boston:

It is inconceivable to most residents (the bulk of which live in Boston) that there are others in their state who are not bleeding heart liberals who need a moment and handkerchief every time a Kennedy is mentioned (this is not exaggeration). The entire population, however, is being heavily taxed in a state that is totally broke due to money mismanagement by corrupt Democrats, the suburban/outstate portion of that population doesn't have any reason to stay blue when rep promises salvation in their pocketbooks.

This is a common affliction in the Northeast Corridor states, where the Democrats are largely the party of the dominant city's political machine and the Republicans in the country & suburbs have been co-opted into the culture of corruption (New York) or have been ineffective (Massachusetts). You also see this in Illinois, of course. Things are changing, though; people are very unhappy with this state of affairs and are going to the ballot box to fix things. It beats shooting people.
