Howdy y’all. It’s lunch time, and I’m going to be heading out to McDonald’s to get a Cobb salad here in a minute. Lately, I’ve been eating a lot of quarter pounders and I’ve gained 10 pounds in the last month, so it’s time to switch back to salads. I’m sitting here in my newly remodeled kitchen/dining room and enjoying the view of the woods out the back door. It rained this morning and for some reason, that makes me realize that I really need to mow. Everything is still green and growing on this first day of October, but soon enough, everything will turn brown and die. Less than 5 weeks until the election. Michelle and I watched the presidential debate last night. I was pacing around and cleaning house for the whole 90 minutes. I was very nervous that Kerry would foul up somehow and ruin his chances to get elected. I don’t think I could stand another four years of George Bush. It’s not because he’s a Republican. I don’t disagree with everything the Republicans stand for, just as I don’t agree with everything in the Democrat’s platform. My biggest problem with George Bush is religious. We’re at war with Islamic fundamentalists abroad, but here at home, we’ve put the Christian fundamentalists in charge. I don’t want to be a Christian, and I don’t want to be treated like a second-class citizen for holding that particular opinion. I could rant on for hours about my beefs with the fundies, but I’m really starting to get hungry.
