Hiroshima, Mon Amour!

...and then the world was a different place.

It's difficult to describe how I feel tonight. After watching two elections in 2000 and 2004 that were like watching a relative (in this case the country) die in my arms from a self-inflicted wound, I finally get to see what it's like when young, intelligent people overwhelm the vote and speak some truth to power. It is beautiful. As Obama was speaking tonight I thought "I almost forgot what it sounds and feels like to have an intelligent, eloquent and inspiring President."

It may sound odd, but I actually feel more motivated to be a better me now. I think we underestimate the impact that our leaders have on us. Today I feel we've started a new chapter. One where we can all play a role, and not just corporate masters of the universe. I'm truly content with my country and countrymen tonight. Getting up this morning at 6 to be the first person to vote in my precinct was worth it (even if Montana barely goes McCain.)

I miss and love you all. Let's change this nation and this world, brothers and sisters!

Love,
Bill

This just occurred to me today. It even takes time for the turkey to get cold.

So, wise Internet addicts of the Internetwebsworld, I come before thee asking for recommendations. Please, oh magnificent ones, which web hosting site would you recommend for me to start a personal website?

Thank you.

Feelin' fine...

Don't know why but yesterday and today I've been feeling pretty good. Things are still kind of shaky at work as far as things with CrisisBoy, but that might just be in my mind.

I think it's because it's Le Garbier's birthday tomorrow and I've bought him some good gifts. As I read in the NYT just this week, giving gifts makes one happier than receiving them, and this weekend is living proof of that.

Also I've made some progress on the cleanup and organization of the apartment. I do need to throw away a lot of excess, however. Hopefully I can make the tough choices.

I'm also looking forward to Dan's Solomon Kane game today, or, as I've apparently dubbed it, "Death Pilgrim". Only about an hour left, I bet it's going to be fun!

So just when I think I'm okay with growing my hair long...someone at work comes along and makes a comment about how it looks unprofessional, or awful, or like a hippie. I honestly don't think it's worth the hassle for me. I don't think it looks bad short, so maybe I should just go back and save myself a lot of grief from my co-workers and family.

I made this:

I think it's one of my better attempts at humor.

Today flew by. They're all flying by. Part of this is because I often feel like I'm not fully present in my own operating. Almost as if my brain is asleep at the wheel. Then, finally, at about 11 PM, I feel my most awake and aware. My memories lock into place, my thoughts and ideas coalesce. That's why I drove home as fast as I could to write this entry. It can't really express how I'm feeling.

So, if you, dear reader, were to cite a length of time that you would consider a "long time", what would you say? A day, a week, a month, a year, a decade, more? The commitments of life seem to scale that way. High school, College, car loans, mortgages, marriage. Suddenly a year does not seem like a lot of time to me anymore.

The "new year" has started off with the usual mixed-bag honeymoon. Been doing well on walking and eating right. Been reading a lot and enjoying time with friends, but the writing has languished. Also, there's a commitment I made to write some things for dimfuture's blog that's been hanging over my head. I need bursts of energy like this one I'm experiencing now to come more frequently. I need them to last longer too.

Work's been bearing the brunt of my sluggishness, though. Still struggling to be as productive as I know I can be. Also, it's dawning on me that I have a difficult time saying 'no' to people. I enjoy people's happiness so much that I can hardly turn down opportunities to make them happy. This does not prevent me from being happy in the short term, but combined with the flow of time and the ebb of energy, it keeps projects like writing on the back burner.

Bear with me while I pick away at the outer shell of my mind. I'll get better at it as time goes (quickly) by. If you could go back in time and change one decision you made in the past, what would it be?
