Oh, Shit, Today Is Tuesday.

Oh, man, now I kinda regret this idea. Maybe I'll just discuss my creative writing process. I write sporadically, but when I do, I end up writing a whole bunch. As an attempt to get myself to write more, I decided to write a thousand word story once a week. Natch, it didn't pan out. I end up with tons of starts for a story and several longish stories. I've posted some portions of those longer stories here. Anyway, I write a lot of things not a lot of which I'm particularly happy about. I like writing dialogue best and descriptions least.

Unfortunately, I'm not in a writing mood right now. I did just stumble upon a great idea (Japan becomes a communist country in the 50's), but I have no passion for the actual labor of putting words to paper. This has also ended up reflecting on the essays I've done lately. I dunno, it's just part of the cyclical nature of my hobbies. If I had to guess, I'd say I'm into videogames again right now. Hopefully next will be music or something.

This post needs more pizazz. So, Georgia threatens to leave the union (link full of boring legalese, just trust me here) right on top of Texas governor Rick Perry threatening the same at the laughable Chicago Tea Parties, basically an excuse for right wingers to go outside and get mad at the president under pretenses that they don't like taxes more than they don't like the idea that a black man is president. Even better, the site that "spontaneously" popped up to support this was actually purchased in August of 2008. It still worries me, though. Especially all the rhetoric surrounding this sort of nonsense. Articles about Rick Santelli's rant titled, "The Shout Heard Round the World," and the very idea of a tea party theme all suggest the American revolution, as if somehow the current democratic administration is comparable to George the Third's reign. All of this spells upcoming war to me. Maybe that'll get us out of this recession.
