led astray

I think I have figured out why some days are so long.  It's because a lot can happen during one.  I'm slowly eating the "brownie" (there should be an expression of "near brownie" just like "near beer" because it may look the same and smell the same , but it just doesn't have some of what makes it real) not because it's good, but because of my grandmother's voice in the back of my head forbidding me to waste good food because children are starving in Africa.  This brownie wouldn't do much to rectify starvation, lacking as it is as much in nutrition as it is in flavor.  That's middle-class white guilt, that is.

The guy from the bus came to visit me at work tonight.  We talked for about an hour.  My superpower seems to have reversed itself and I was telling the random stranger all about myself instead of the other way around.  Sheesh, I hardly let the guy have a word in edgewise!  But we exchanged net-contact info.  I realized while I was writing just how many ways there are to find me on the internet.  And my dear sweet mother doesn't know a single one and couldn't figure them out if her pathetic little life depended on it! *quack-ack-ack-ack says the evil duckling*  But he promised me a treatise on what it is the student government actually does, and in exchange I promised I would read it and consider voting next time.  That's promise to consider, not promise to vote.  And we theorized that married gay couples with children would have a significantly lower incidence of child abuse than found in hetero couples.

So yeah, I'm still dog-ass tired, but I'm in a better mood.  Between talking to mt sis and talking to bus guy and both being rather cheerful, I'm nearly in a good mood.  Take that, depression!  :-P


Woot! I'm glad that despite the near-brownie's best efforts, your day turned out well. :)
