I'm still trying to figure out if I'm going to the Rally in DC on October 30th. It depends on if Gigi is going or not. VeryMissMary and I might go, but she's been sick lately so we don't know if she'll be up to the trip or not. With Gigi, the issue involves a romantic development. Gigi and VeryMissMary are the only people I'd want to go with, except for The Man from San Antone and that's out of the question since he's busy suing people. The reason I'd want to go with him anyway has to do with accommodations. He can afford a swanky hotel near the Mall so I wouldn't have to use a Port-O-San along with every drunk kid on the east coast. When you're my age, the social, political and cultural significance of an event must be weighed against personal comfort.
It would be fun to be at the Rally to Restore Sanity and to Keep Fear Alive, but I want to get there on Friday, have a nice dinner and sleep in a comfy bed. Saturday I want to have a lovely breakfast and get ready at a leisurely pace. After having a wonderful afternoon on the Mall, I want to rest, take a long, hot bath, wrap up in a cushy towel, rest some more then go out for another lovely dinner - but that would all be flexible because you never know who you'll meet and where you'll go from there. After a good night's sleep and a quick but delicious breakfast on Sunday morning, we'd head back to the city and maybe stop at a farmers' market along the way. All very doable, but only if I'm sharing expenses with somebody.
The main reason I want to go is to hook up with some buddies from Blogland, especially Joe and Dre from World Wide Hippies. Today they've linked to a letter written by Kurt Vonnegut Jr in 1991 in which Vonnegut declares: Our government doesn't give a fuck about our troops. Onward and Upward.
This morning, I've spent my political energy discussing Tits and the Progressive Agenda over at Black Magpie Theory. Although I'm not sure it's actually true, Obama and other prominent Democrats have been insisting that the choice between Republicans and Democrats is clear. Frankly, I'm of the opinion that Democrats are only slightly less bad than Republicans - and I'm not factoring in Blue Dog Democrats who have been fucking up everything. Nevertheless, it would suck to see that Oompa Loompa John Boehner as Speaker of the House.
In Real Life these days, when I haven't been trying to convince a man that he needs to allow me to become his Cum Slut, I've been dealing with some of the most spoiled children I've encountered in twenty years of teaching preschool. I can handle the kids, but their parents are going to get a stern lecture on curriculum night in a couple of weeks. Either they are scared of their two year-olds or they are operating under the delusion that everything their kids do is cute. I may wear my new black motorcycle boots and smack a ruler against my leg while I'm talking.
Actually, I haven't gone on the Cum Slut mission yet. I've made a simple suggestion. I hope I don't need to go on a full blown campaign because I'm not sure exactly what that would entail. I've never been a Cum Slut before.
