What if the only roles available to me are: Victim and Asshole. Weigh the pros and cons.

Victim: Hurts real bad, but moral high ground
Asshole: Hurts (slightly) less, but people don't like you as much.

If we can equate not being liked with pain, and moral high ground with un-pain, then by my calculations they are EXACTLY the same amount of ouch.

Wouldn't THAT suck!

Jul. 16th, 2008 @ 08:57 pm Representative government
Current Location: bedroom in Maine
Current Mood: goodgood
Current Music: appropriately and completely by accident, "We're Not Gonna Take It"
Received today:

"On behalf of President Bush, thank you for your correspondence.

We appreciate hearing your views and welcome your suggestions.

Due to the large volume of e-mail received, the White House cannot respond to every message.

Thank you again for taking the time to write."

I am reading between the lines (easy because they double-spaced a really short, impersonal e-mail, I guess to make it look more substantial than the snub it clearly is) and finding this really heartening. Because it's actually really hard to e-mail the president; which is to say, you CAN NO LONGER E-MAIL THE PRESIDENT directly. And still, the White House receives a "large volume of e-mail." Because people are that pissed. Good for us.

Little Girl (during reading of book about beavers): "My aunt has a t-shirt, and on the back it says 'There's nothing better than a healthy beaver.'"
Me: "Well, that's true."

Little boy #1: "Do you like the Redwings?"
Little boy #2: "No."
Little boy #1: *gasps* "You're EVIL!"

Me: "What are these keys for?"
Supervisor: "Those are to the back door."
My teaching partner: "I could've used THOSE last night!"

Little boy (nephew of lesbians): "Yeah, and my aunt lives here in Maine, and my other aunt does too, and she lives with her, and they're pretty much always together. It's crazy."

Little boy #1: "Do you think Satan is real?"
Little boy #2: "Mmm, it depends."

(boys have been flinging large rocks violently into the sea, then sit down and try to smash them on other rocks)
Little boy #1: "Now we're in a workshop."
Little boy #2: "Santa's workshop."

Little boy to me: "My brother had SEX ED!"

Current Music: "Groove Me" (!!)
I live in this fancy house now, in Maine. I've slept two nights here so far. We have chickens, and I think they can get into the house, because today I found a big old bowl shattered on the floor, and a pile of chicken shit on the dresser in the spot where the bowl used to stand.
