Anxiety Lad

Gah. Wanted to get more done today - or anything, really - but I have to confess that I'm beyond stressed and distracted by current events. I felt like I was walking around in a fog all day, and it has not abated with the news of the down vote. The instant explosion of party squabbling afterwards did nothing to soothe me, but neither did it serve to wake me up.

Good Lord, I think I may be in shock. I'll let you know if I have a tingling sensation in my extremities.

Please, let's at least get one big, massive hanging question mark out of the way. I can't take all this 'Reply Hazy. Ask Again Later' stuff. Right now, in terms of popular toys with an occult theme, I'd rather have me an Ouija board than the ol' Magic 8.

Yeah, I'm goig through the same thing.. I don't know why it's getting to me, but I literally was having a panic attack the day of the debate... had to drink a bottle of wine to settle my nerves and didn't even catch a buzz off it..

Be soothed by the fact yesterday was a historic day, the first real victory for the people of this once great country... since the signing of the Constitution.

For the people to speak through their congress and be heard, and rebuke the power elite for the first time ever... it's stunning.

It's a victory of such magnitude... ugh... I am actually filled with that thing called, um, hope... but I hope it's not thrown away by passing something almost as outrageous... the markets should be allowed to fail and reboot... Wall Street should be allowed to lose it all... let these fuckers jump off buidings or in front of trains... SPLAT!
