Political season almost over...

Just thought I would mention that we have received 15+ calls today. On Friday, we had 13 messages on the answering machine, and who knows how many just hung up when they got the machine. Ah, irritation.

Political Grumblings

This year's ballot felt more painful than previous ballots. Usually we have one or two initiatives and then a handful candidates to look through. This then takes about an hour to sift through the initiatives and then look at the history and credentials of the candidates. This year however we have a plethora of initiatives. Plethora! Luckily for me, the candidates made it a little bit easy for me in their selection. Basically if they called me, I didn't vote for them. I would rather write in myself than to vote for someone that has some frakkin' recording call me just to smear another human being.

Seriously don't call me. I vote and I can do my own research. Our phone normally receives one call a week. In the last two weeks, we have received 18 calls.

Nothing new on the home front

September is finished and I am trying to get back in the habit of blogging. Seems that I knew this would happen at some point, but really not much I can or care to talk about. Work is work... and I can't talk about it. Home is good, but I don't feel like talking about it. Many of my hobbies feel pretty small potatoes (gaming and music) and therefore haven't got any writing time. Same goes for football (other than my pain of being a Lions fan).

So that does not leave me with much. Maybe I will find some inspiration to actually put some meaningful words on paper.

On other notes, if you are interesting in writing a novel, November is nanowrimo. It is quite the challenge if you haven't tried.
