the longest day. ever.

At long last, I have finished preparing my boss for her second lobby trip to Springfield. Not to whine, but here I go: Waah! I'm working really hard! Waah! I need a nap!

And underneath the whining, a quiet 'heh. i rock.'
...
so now that Forth & Towne is closing, i need to plan a massive shopping trip to hoard accessories and cute jackets for spring and summer. who's with me?
...
the political season is underway and i have only meh thoughts about hillary and obama in black churches to prove their street cred. (what cred do they seek, i wonder? is hillary really trying to show what a friend she is to black folks? and is obama really going to cave on the whole 'if you're mixed you're not black enough' meme? i guess so.) how ridiculous is our political process that we pay more attention to the stupid photo op than actual policy?

what i'd love to ask hillary:
without referencing the 60's, martin luther king or anyone from the civil rights era, why should black people pay any attention to you today?
...
in what is becoming an uncomfortable phone call habit, my father keeps asking me what the outcome was of my lunch with MichiGarry.

this lunch was back in january.

so my father is either *really* worried that i'm going to die unshriven and alone or he's entering senility.

is it bad that i'm hoping it's the latter?

I'll go! I love shopping.

re: Hillary - make sure she also doesn't use Bill in her response. I submitted a few questions to her for her video conference and was disappointed that she didn't respond to them.

I think I am leaning toward Edwards - if for no other reason than that I feel like he really cares about poverty. Richardson has been geting some good press too.

a run in may...
let's do it! it'll be close enough to the closing that they'll be desperate to get rid of stuff!

hm. edwards...maybe. i still like him (despite what his campaign did to two female bloggers who weren't so down with the whole church oppressing women thing) but why do i get a strong whiff of defeat when i look at him?

and, really, is the best way to do the most social good being President? i'm rethinking that...

I need to drive up to Old Orchard maybe in April. Will be in England for half of May, and I could use some new tops for that.

I'm nervous about Richardson after David Brooks raved about how wonderful he is in a recent NYT column. Brooks' agenda makes me suspicious.

I kinda like Edwards, too.
