Poll: Disapproval of Bush at high point

Someone once said to me–the tide is turning. People are waking up. The dark side is starting to fade.
The number of Americans disapproving of President Bush’s job performance has risen to the highest level of his presidency, according to the CNN/USA Today/Gallup poll released Monday.

Nothing much to report.

Monday’s are always…interesting. Never sure what’s going to happen. Found some extremely cheap seats on Southwest for tickets to go to Florida to go see me sister. Very exciting.

Yeah, like I said.

Listening: Love Like Laughter, Central Reservation, Beth Orton

Another Sunday down. 28 more to go.

Uber hot today. Went to the beach with Nickolas, with my 45 SPF and no bathing suit. The Atlantic is too cold this time of year for full blown swimming. Actually, the Atlantic is too cold for swimming almost all the time. We went to a lesser known beach, no boardwalks or arcades to gum up the works. There are so gorgeous houses (read: mansions) in North Hampton. They’re all really old and worth a lot of money, more money than I think I’ll ever want to see. And I know that’s just the tip of the iceberg. There are some houses up in Port Elizabeth, near Portland, that make these look like subsidized housing. The sun was so hot that there was steam rising up off of the wet sand. The dry sand was unbearable and couldn’t wait to dip my feet in the ocean. It actually wasn’t that bad–60-63 degrees. We walked down the beach and let the water suck at our toes. Nick skipped rocks. I waded too deep and got a nice big kiss on the bum before deciding to say “f it!” and went in up to my waist. Who cares if I got my jean skirt soaked? It was fun.
Later, we sat out on the rocks that line the extremely expensive beach bungalows and watches the tide come in. I was watching the rocks that were scattered a long the shoreline. The rocks were left from the last tide and the waves would push them forward and pull them back. Some would stay but other would disappear beneath the rush of sand and foam.
I sat there thinking, how like life. How like MY life. We are all stones. At some point or another, we were thrown into this great ocean of our daily lives. Occasionally we are thrown onto the shores of something new. Some of us manage to stay. Some of us return to the ocean. Over and over and over again it happens.
Did I mention I can’t wait to move?

full moon california

listening: Stash, Picture of Nectar, Phish

The sun was setting tonight, at like 10 o’clock, which is amazing. Still light out, still warm. It was cold last night (and I even wrote last night and was such a tard that I erased it on accident), but tonight it’s warm and syrupy. Maybe this is what California is like all year round. `Course I have no idea since I’ve NEVER been there. But I can imagine. Imagine that everything is perfect there.
Extremely strange astral weather lately. Yesterday was a lazy day. Neil came up Saturday night and I didn’t go to be until almost 5 in the morning. I had thrown Better Living through Circuitry and fell asleep right around when they started talking about Carl Cox…I think…and woke up to the DVD menu music. Tried to sleep on the couch but managed to get upstairs and fall into bed, not before staring out my window, watching the sky go from electric blue to lavendar, realizing in my blurry mind as I fell asleep that the sun was coming up. Woke up too early, roommate and I witnessed a full blown domestic disturbance in the parking lot behind our house. Did the nosy thing by running upstairs to see if we could get a better view. At the grocery store, a couple walked by us, arguing and the girl finally hissed “GOD, just stop TALKING to me!”.

Slightly hilarious, as we, roommate and I, were getting along famously, unlike every day other day of the year. And the good, strange mood as carried over onto a Monday. Work went quick and then we were home again. I don’t know if it’s the weather or not.

Coworker went to Keene for training last week and brought me back a map of the Monadnock Region. It’s very cartoony, with all the little towns mapped out. I love it. I hung it up under my Costa Rica map and meditate on it when I want to run screaming from the building.
