Icalled MD to see how she was doing (much better) and listened to her talk for 9 minutes & 43 seconds about watching all the shit today about Martin Luther King Jr & Barack Obama.
She finally took a breath and said "You don't really understand, do you?"
Me - I understand what it feels like to have never thought I'd see a black president in my lifetime. I was excited after he won, not so much today. Still have to see if he gets killed tomorrow or if he actually gets in the oval office. But I understand it being much more moving to you than for me.
Plus...I just don't get that excited about shit.
We don't really know Obama. Whatever he's planning won't take effect right away. It probably won't change my life that much regardless (unless I stop having to pay deductible/co-pay for Dr visits and Medicare finally starts paying for Dentists & Optometrists).
Even if I did get excited over things, I couldn't sustain excitement for MONTHS.
But I am excited that I got three (3) blog awards yesterday! 3 awards that I've never gotten before, even! :-)
The first 2 are from Aria @ Aria's Ink
I'm supposed to name 10 bloggers & tell 10 facts about myself. I just gave awards last week or something. Let me think about it for a minute.
The 3rd is from Tim @ Breathing In. It is actually 3 awards in 1.
Copying from Tim's post:
The Three in One award denotes, “Blogs of attitude and gratitude, a member of a proud sisterhood, and a best friend of all blogs.”
Some of the blogs he reads are blogs I read too, so I don't want to repeat the same people, LOL.
Plus...I already gave some awards out last week.
I just didn't want Aria or Tim to think I wasn't appreciative of the award or whatever.
So I'll definitely give them out.
Just not today.
And I have some gingerbread cookies to eat...so bye! ;-)
