Sunday Sitting

I'm sitting on the couch with the laptop. Zoe is playing a game on the gamecube and Mira is playing with paper & scissors.

I'm feeling more together today than yesterday. Yesterday, my eyes were bothering me quite a bit and I had to take out my contacts. We went over to the Diggs for Audrey's 1st birthday party. It was one of the first time I've worn my glasses out in public in recent years.

Thanks to the Andersens, we had a bottle of Bushmill's Irish Whiskey to celebrate S. Patrick's day with group shots. Between the glasses giving me a headache, the 4 shots of whiskey and the slices of pizza, I was hardly the energetic life of the party.

After we got home and put the kids to bed, I tried to watch some TV. The rain was so intense that the signal from DirecTV was blocked. I went to bed to get some sleep, hoping that the signal would clear up later and Ali G would get Tivoed.

Today I'm feeling better and having fun with the girls. Michele is off to do some knitting thing somewhere. We are watching the Inspector Gadget 2 movie for the 5th time in four days.


We saw the President speak from the Azores. It looks like we will be at war soon. Nothing will convince him to wait on the attack. Everything is in place and ready to move out.

I predict that he will attack tomorrow. Probably around 3PM Pacific. That's 2 AM in Baghdad. They will launch the attack in the middle of the night.

I hope as few people as possible will die as a result. Unfortunately I fear that many, many people will die.

We need to remember this when it comes time to vote for President in another year. Our President is shredding the Constitution, ignoring America's problems, and going to war without the support of the American people or the rest of the world. We can do better than this. We need a President who believes in the values in our Constitution, not in the words of chickenhawks looking at the world as a game of Risk.
