where to start?

August 30, 2008

springsteen, i guess, is as good a place to start as any.  we went to see the boss last sunday night at the sprint center.  beforehand we had a delicious and hilarious mexican food experience with jam, ry, joe, and matt–the company really doesn’t get better than that.  upon arriving at our sprintastic destination we ran into jennifer and kyle at the blvd tent.  while we were hanging out, her program director offered up backstage passes to meet steven van zandt, and then upgraded our upper level tickets to seats on the floor.  

the concert was brilliant.  from the energy of the boss and the e street band to the six awesomely gay men sitting in front of us, who butt slapped, kissed, high fived and sang along to EVERY song, it was a memorable night.  bruce springsteen is hot hot hot, talented and musically perfect.

 school has started and i am thrilled to be teaching again, especially the students i have this year.  i haven’t been told to fuck off yet, which is a plus, and i’m teaching american literature form 1600-1900–not an area of my expertise–but i am developing a huge amount of respect for the men and women who founded our country, and feel so very blessed to be rediscovering it during this momentous time in history.

and then, of course, there is the greatest practical joke ever floated.  i think mccain has officially entered the wild world of dementia and MUST believe yesterday was april first.  i am waiting for him to say “april fool’s!  gotcha!”  there is no way he can seriously have such little respect for women to think his v choice will secure our votes.  he must believe our lady parts are magnetic and we will be pulled to the polls by the awesome power of the human vagina and vote for him because his running mate shares our plumbing. what an asshole.  if you wanted my respect, mccain, you should have chosen someone who disagreed with you and fundamental issues, someone who would challenge you to think about the decisions you’re making, someone with enough foreign policy experience for me to believe he/she would be able to pronounce dmitry medvedev.  not someone whose greatest accomplishment to date is cooridnating her outfit to match a amp of alaska.

 

what the fuck?
