Political Absurdity and Count-Down to 40

Thanks for your comments about my dandruff posting. I have found myself not checking my arms and shoulders for flakes as much this week. The burden is definitely lighter. And yes - I made my pushup goal! I'll update my goal to a new number and deadline soon.

I am really looking forward to the election being over. I have to say, though, there are two political ads that stand out as the most ridiculous one's I've encountered in this whole election season. The first one came in the mail addressed to James (a republican). It pictured John McCain and Hillary Clinton in one photo smiling and looking at one another as if they were teenagers in love. The ad went on to praise Hillary for opening the doors for girls in politics (including John McCain's three daughters). This from republicans who can't stand anything to do with a Clinton? Very genuine, I'm sure.

The second ridiculous ad was a tv commercial James and I saw last night. It was for Obama and talked about how if you wanted to see what America's future looks like with John McCain, all you have to do is look in your rear-view mirror. Then it showed George Bush smiling with John McCain in the rear-view mirror. It almost seemed like the same picture of McCain with Hillary (just substitute W). You don't think they could be faking some of those photographs, do you? Alas. These ads will all be over within 36 hours. I am voting tomorrow, hopefully when the line is not extremely long.

Much more fun for me, I am counting down the days until I turn 40. 5 more to go! My college friend Becky arrives into town on Thursday night to spend the weekend with me. I am really embracing this new decade and full of gratitude for all the blessings in my life.
