See, this is what happens when two nerds get married and have little boys.

Pensivity II

1. So many cute babies floating around right now! There's Kaden, Nora, Rachel... awwwwwww!

2. Come March, I'm going to pull a Cara and kick winter out of my house. A lot of people will probably laugh, being as this is an Alaskan household, but I HATE Utahn winters. Ugh. Dreariness embodied.

3. John McCain. I'm not looking forward to the rest of this election, folks. I'll support McCain-- I'd far rather it were him than Hillary or Obama-- but I'll find it hard to be enthusiastic. At least as long as I'm enjoying the internecine warfare over on the Dem's side, anyway. I imagine I'll settle down as soon as that's decided... won't I? I just can't get all excited over McCain. He's got some of the worst aspects of Bush, not to mention the fact that's he's "supremely vain", to quote Yuval Levin. He's great on foreign policy, at least as far as I can tell... but the man's a jerk. Not as much of a jerk as Giuliani, but still a jerk.

4. All my seeds should arrive before too long. What is politics compared to therapy that is gardening? The answer is, thankfully, not much in the U.S.A. The Constitution will still be there, no matter who wins in November. If someone screws up, that's why we have election, and (heaven forbid) impeachments. This is still a wonderful place-- no matter who sits in an ovoid-shaped office on the east coast.

Tagged-- My man

What is his name? James Emmett Stevenson

How long have you been together? Well, I've known him since I was 15, so that would make it... a long time. 12 years this fall... WOW I'm old.

How did you meet? I smacked him upside the head with a drum mallet. It's a long story.

How long have you been married? 4 years this April.

Kids? The Willex!

How old is he? James is 25.

Who eats more? Me. Definitely me!

Who eats more sweets? Um. Probably James. He's a chocaholic.

Who said I love you first? Will you think I'm unromantic if I don't remember?

Who is taller? That would be me. By four inches.

Who sings better? Definitely James.

Who is smarter? Probably James. But we tend to balance each other out.

Who does the laundry? I do, but the washer and dryer are in James' office. Does that mean we both do it?

Who pays the bills? The bank's online auto pay. I set it up though.

Who sleeps on the right side? I do as you lay on the bed.

Who mows the lawn? The landlord's son.

Who cooks dinner? Depends on the night. We do about 50/50.

Who drives? Whoever gets there first, unless it's dark. My night vision isn't very good.

Who is more stubborn? It used to be me, but I think I've rubbed off on him.

Who kissed first? James did.

Who proposed? James! I'm not that brave:)

Who has more friends? Well, most of our friends are OUR friends, so I think we're tied.

Who is more sensitive? Me. For sure.

Who has more siblings? We're tied at one a piece.

Consider yourself tagged if you wanna. It's fun!

Super Tuesday's over

And I'm not so happy about it, although I'm not surprised either.
No, I take that back. I'm not surprised with how well McCain did-- I'm surprised at how well Huckabee did. Huckabee has earned the distinction of being one of the few politicians whom I personally dislike.
At any rate, I don't think Romney is going to be able to get past this, although it is just barely possible. We'll see, I guess. In the meantime, I'm going to begin resigning myself to nominee McCain... although if he picks Huckabee for his running-mate, all resignation will be out the window, down the street, and in the storm drain.

I've been looking forward to Super Tuesday for at least a month. That said--
STUPID EXIT POLLS! Why can't this be OVER already?

Yes, I do need to take a deep breath.
