Aw Crap.

Alright we'll start with the knitting.

100_2579

Looking good right? I've got about a 3/4" left to knit before I start the toe decreases. But look at that ball. Am I going to have enough for a second sock?

Aw crap.

Then I read this today.

Now I'm a staunch Democrat. But what am I going to do in 2008? I mean once Richardson throws his hat into the ring you're talking about a field comprised of a Black man, Hispanic man and White woman all running against each other. Ok so it's way too early for me to tell who I'd put my money on. However if you look at it on face value alone--you're asking us to choose between so many different people we'd like to see get ahead.

Aw crap.

But it's too early to tell. Like I said, we're talking literally face value only right now. I have to hear what these peeps have to say as time progresses.

I can tell you I'll never be down with John Edwards though. Something about him doesn't sit right with me and I am willing to make a cosmetic judgment of him. I almost expect him to rip away the flesh on his face to reveal a Terminator-esque cyborg. Ever see that Buffy where her mom is dating the John Ritter robot? I kind of want to whack John Edwards with a fry pan to see if he starts shooting sparks.

Aw crap (that would be amusing!).

I hope you can find more yarn for a second sock!! As for the presidential thing, I'm with Obama all the way. The man reaches out to me. Some people think Hillary might have too much baggage. What's scary with these runners though is that all the racial biggots will cast their vote to the Republicans...oh wait, they were going to do that anyways. Aw Crap.

Ok, but all I have to say is that if Hilary Clinton is elected, I am calling every single news station in every single state and telling them of my walking protest, during which I will walk all the way from Arizona to the Canadian border, cross it, and instantly renounce my US Citizenship.

Please delete this if people start wigging out on your blog. You know I got nothing but love for you and won't take it personally.

PS- I LOVE your sock and the sock holder!!

Freedom of speech baby, yeah!

Love the sock. Try weighing the finished one and the remaining yarn to see if there is enough. You could always do the toes in a solid color. Or frog back and do the heel and toe in a coordinating color.

So far I think Obama has a better chance to actually win the race. I think Hillary is just to polarizing to win. And John Edwards didn't even take his home state in the last run for preszident with Kerry - not promising.

To me, it's like when you actually have money in your pocket and you want to buy a pair of jeans and can't find a single pair and then a few weeks later you find a million pair you want and you don't have a dime! One election I'm picking the lesser of two evils and the next...too many choices!

oh yes. for some of us it's definitely a "oh wow, who can i pick...so many good choices!" to another segment of the population it is "oh dear, no white male! whatever shall I do?"

time will tell!

What sgeddes said. Have you weighed said sock and yarn? Maybe you are worrying for nothing! As for the politics, I live in Canada, so you are welcome to come up anytime! (call first so I can get the dust buffaloes out of the corners!)*grin*

Aw crap. I hope you have enough sock yarn for the second sock!

I had an aw crap moment today. My sock swap buddy picked her yarn and, as I was winding it, it was broken in 4 places! aw crap.

Until Richardson declared I was hoping for a Obama prez/Clinton VP ticket. Sort of. I'm not convinced that he has enough experience, and she might be nearly as polarizing in the second slot. That said, Obama has such huge charisma and people like to feel inspired. God, even in the darkest days of my opinion of Bill Clinton I still got teary-eyed during the State of the Onion.

If I remember right, isn't that a special yarn? Something you dyed or got special? Aw crap...The times we're living in...who would have thought? To her credit, Hillary has some inside experience and those were productive years.

Crap!! I so hope you have enough for your other sock, but good idea from sgeddes...oh yeah, what she said about Edwards too! Not looking forward to any of it!

Oh! Crap you should of made those socks for me!! My feet are not as big as yours!! Hahahahaha!!! As for the 2008 elections....I am not sure about anyone yet. I will have to see and go from there. I just hope that who ever running has some good advisers, when the Reps. start asking about the abortion stand that they come up with the answer that it is a medical procedure and that it is up to the Dr. and the patient. Would they deny a person an appendectomy? And OH! Crap I think I better stop there!! I could go on forever!!! Love, Mom

First of all -- the sock: knit the toe in a different color?

I think Hillary would be a great president, but I don't think she could be elected because there are so many people who despise her simply for being Hillary. I absolutely LOVE Barack, though - he's smart and charismatic and even with his relative lack of experience, I believe in him.

(Can you come to knitting at Candlelight tomorrow?)

Hey - thank you SO much for your insight into San Diego. We don't have the bucks to be living here in Chicago either, so I'm assuming it'll be about the same. Eh, we like to live beyond our means anyway. Don't most knitters?

I hear ya on the election thing - but isn't it nice for once to be worried about choosing between a bunch of great folks instead of the lesser of two evils? I'll take what I can get, at this point.

Here's to a nomadic existence - I'd love to know where else you've lived!

Thanks again. :)

I always seem to be a lesser of two evils kinda person, except for Rick Perry, he's gotta go.

I also think that the people who are smartest to be president are the ones who are smart enought not to run.

Just my $0.02.

As for the socks, I would cut the yarn before teh toe decreases and start the second sock. If you knit the whole thing and still have plenty, then great. But if not, you can do different color toes.

P.S. Josiah Bartlett for President!! (from the West Wing)

I have to admit I'm SOOO excited about this election. For the first time in my life. Hmmm, coincidence that the people in the news aren't old white men?

I signed up for Obama's emails. Oh, the email I got was so great. I think he speaks the truth, but maybe a little too abstractly for anyone to vote for him.

You can bet your buttons I'll be staying up on election night, glued to the television.

You'd be surprised how much sock can come out of a tiny little ball of yarn...but if there's a postage scale you can borrow at work...I would, just to check.

:)

I dunno 'bout the politics...it just seems so very far away still.

Bez anyone with a brain will do.

Love the sock, I'd go for the weighing option too. Hope you have enough.

I'm a raving liberal, but I wouldn't vote for Ms. Clinton. Anyone else, OK, her, no.

Anyhow. Good luck with the sock! I better do something else before I go on a huge political rant!

Now I am probably one of the few who would vote for Hilary. Maybe it's the feminist in me, who knows. I think she is getting alot of backlash from her dip stick husband's term. You all can flog me now. Lol But I am also not all "up to date" in the politcal arena. Now ask me anything about Blue's Clues and Backyardigans...

I'm going enthusiastically for an Obama-Richardson ticket in '08. I have my reasons (hubby used to work for Michelle Obama, and I know for a personal fact what a great guy Barack is), but I also happen to think he's the next Kennedy - if he can avoid getting shot by some maniac in the next two years, we have a new President. I'd vote for Hillary, but (a) she is unelectable, and (b) she isn't NEARLY so hot as Barack. ...If Obama Mania continues, though, we won't have to worry about Hillary much longer, no matter how much money she has - if the war keeps going the way it is, Barack will be pretty much unstoppable.

pretty socks! you'll probably have enough. i always think i'm gonna run out of yarn, and i've only actually done it once. and when that happened, i found a creative solution that worked out just fine. so i'll hope for the best for your socks.

and as far as politics goes...BUT john edwards is the son-of-a-mill-worker! j/k. i would never vote for him either--did you see him in the VP debates? Cheney-bot killed him. and that, my friends, is pathetic, since we all know that cheney has been dead for like 15 years and they are only propping him up like weekend at bernies.

i'm ok with any of the other three, though i don't think obama has enough experience to make a good president.

All I have to say about the 2008 elections is that the Reptiles are finally putting on a good game face. Trust Know Won. ;)
