I was having such a good day, and then it all kind of went to hell. Oh, well. It happens.

Anyway, to cheer myself up, I've been looking at things that make me happy. In other words, pictures of band boys. BUT. The most happy making thing I've run across today?

This: )

What's been making you happy today?

Things that are good about today:

  • President Obama (!!!) started the process of shutting down the Guantánamo Bay trials.

  • He's still President Obama. It's real!

  • I wrote 2,000 more words on my Big Bang.


  • It's only 11:00, so that's all I've got, but I'm hopeful about the rest of the day.

    Also, in case anyone missed, if you want to be on my Bandom Big Bang filter, here's the poll.

    Well, it's been a long eight years. I remember vividly when Bush won the first time. I was so sad, not just because the person I didn't vote for won, but because he won by depriving our country of its choice. He won in a dishonest way, cheating the people of Florida out of their vote. No one can say it was his fault that the ballots were messed up in the '00 election, but he took advantage of it, and the system failed us spectacularly. It was incredibly tragic, and from that moment on, I never had any faith in this presidency. I'll grant that he did a good job, in my opinion, with 9/11, but he managed to erase all my good will toward him when he, again, used something tragic to his advantage, and used it as an excuse to police the world, to go to Iraq and impose our government on a country that didn't want it.

    Eight years we've lived with this. In the span of this time, we've become a country that the world looks down on. A country that I lost faith in.

    But I have hope again. On November 4th, my country became a place I'm proud of again. I'm regaining the faith that I let myself lose.

    I don't think Obama is going to be a perfect president. I don't think he'll do everything right, and I don't think our country is going to be fixed in a matter of days, or months. It's going to be a long road to healing, and I know that. But I'm looking forward to the days when I can say without shame, "I'm from America." I used to be able to do that, and I want it back.

    Today, in the last few hours of Bush's presidency, I'm going to try to forgive him. I don't think he's an evil man, I think he's an incredibly flawed one who listened to the wrong people and went with his need for a legacy rather than the needs of his people. I don't want to hate him anymore. The only person that's hurting is me.

    And now, even though we've probably all seen it a million times, I'm going to watch it again, because I don't think you can ever have too much hope.



    Today is going to be a good day.

    So I scrapped my private detective Big Bang idea. I couldn't sleep last night and I was trying to figure out the plot, and I had absolutely nothing. But I had another idea that I really like, I'm just not sure I can pull it off. I have no illusions about my writing ability (and this is not when you're supposed to jump in and tell me what a great writer I am, because seriously, I'm fine with just being an okay writer) and this plot may need a better hand than mine. But I'm going to give it a go. It would be stupid if I didn't try, just because it makes me nervous.

    I realized I have no Brendon/Spencer icons. I really need to rectify that. Especially since I have two Brendon/Jon icons, and that's my very least favorite pairing.

    I had something else to talk about and it flitted right out of my head.

    Oh! Only FIVE days until Obama takes office! Only five more days of George W. Bush at the helm, fucking all our shit up. The end is in sight, guys. We can make it.

    I'm feeling a bit better today. I don't feel like I'm dying, at least. So you're all spared the whining. Sorry about that. Thanks for all your sweet words. ♥ I'm a big baby when I'm sick. It's just not pretty.

    I think I finally managed to get my layout where I want it. The sad thing is that when I spent like, four hours recoding it I hated it, but when I spent one hour recoding the entire thing I like it a lot better.

    I had a dream last night that I made out with Obama. I can't decide if it was a good dream or kind of creepy. Well, I know I'm kind of creepy for having it, I just can't decide if the dream itself was creepy or not.

    I'm a sheep:

    all you need is love

    I was discussing how attractive our new administration is going to be with a friend tonight, and then had the realization that somewhere, someone will inevitably write fic about them.

    I felt that this realization called for a poll:

    [Poll #1292754]

    I'm sorry, I'm sure everyone is tired of hearing this, but.

    OHIO WENT FOR OBAMA, MOTHERFUCKERS. MY STATE WENT BLUE! I'M SERIOUSLY CLOSE TO TEARS I'M SO FUCKING HAPPY!

    I have my day tomorrow mostly planned out. I'm getting up at 5:45 and going to vote when the polls open. At some point during the day I'll head over to Starbucks for my free "I voted!" coffee. And then I'm sitting at home glued to the TV. I'm sure that by the time the results start coming in I'll be insane. I'm already a nervous wreck.

    Also, I hate living in Ohio so much sometimes. Since we're a swing state we're being bombarded with anti-Obama ads. If I have to see that damn Reverend Wright ad one more time, I'm going to freaking scream.

    I live right by my polling place, and I really want to blast "We Believe (In Barack Obama)" by The Hush Sound all day in backyard. Heh. I'm not going to, but I want to. He's love you and your mama!

    IF YOU DO NOTHING ELSE TOMORROW, VOTE. THIS ELECTION AFFECTS EACH AND EVERY ONE OF US. VOTE.

    I spent part of yesterday and today carving pumpkins! It was pretty cool, and look! Not terrible, right?





    Sorry the pictures aren't great, my camera is old. Also, it was dark. The first one says "Hope" with the Obama insignia thingy as the "O," and the second says "Vote Obama '08." I think they turned out pretty well, especially when you consider that I have no artistic talent whatsoever, and also that I've never actually carved a pumpkin before.

    Keith Olbermann is doing a special comment tonight! Everyone tune into MSNBC at around 8:45, it's like free porn! Who does't want to watch free porn?

    Person who offered to make a header for [livejournal.com profile] mixingmusic? Can you still do that? If not, it's totally fine, just let me know. Thank you! ♥
