There’s a bit of a disparity here – I know it’s the middle of January, and I’m definitely happy to be heading to see friends, and do exciting new things. I’m sad cause I might freeze to death. I’m sad cause alicia isn’t able to sprint east with me, though she’d probably be unhappy with me for making her go to a ‘cold’ state. 😉

I’m pondering using the upside down US flag as a symbol of my disbelief in how far we’ve veered from what I thought was America’s path – truth, justice – that shit. Are we not in distress? should I not point that out to everybody? Ted Rall will be the downfall of me, but damn he’s able to express angles to the reality we’re in. I’m lucky to be able to dwell in denial, but it’s truly saddening. Perhaps on my backpack for my trips through the airports this week, eh?

cool – now it’s Elvis C.’s “Pump It Up” on MMJB… cool.
