I have no words for what is going on (or not going on, rather) in Congress right now. I will just say that I am not surprised that dumb fuck Cruz is from Texas. I am shocked and saddened by how many people I know and love are spittle-yelling, virulent Tea Party supporters. I feel like telling them that he who shouts loudest is not the winner, but what's the point? It seriously turns my stomach. I feel like once my parents and older brother are gone from this world, I cannot leave Texas fast enough.

I've never affiliated myself with any political party because I am always willing to listen to both sides; however, the divide has gotten so ridiculously huge and the messages so negative, I feel like there is no point in even trying to see things from both sides. Everyone else is digging in, so I will too. As a minority woman hanging on to the middle class by her fingertips, I cannot in good conscience support the Republican Party. As a human being, I cannot abide the Tea Party Republicans. There are plenty of things about the Demos I don't like, but guess what? At least their lies sound believable.

See what I did there? Said I wasn't gonna talk about it...and yet I did.

So, on to other news. I am beat! This Thursday, the San Antonio Aids Foundation is having a charity event and my sister and I have offered to provide some bake sale items (she has gotten mad-talented at cake decorating and I am still obsessed with baking, because I am on forever! diet, LOL). I am making a rainbow cake (hee!), a chocolate cake with raspberry filling and ombre icing, and a dozen pies-in-a-jar (apple and raspberry). To prevent myself from staying up until 3AM on Thursday morning and cursing the day I ever offered to do anything for anyone, I am trying to prep stuff this weekend. So I assembled all the pies and put them in the freezer tonight. Easy but time-consuming! On Wednesday night, I will bake the cakes and on Thursday, I will pop the pies in the oven and put frosting on anything in the kitchen not moving.

I need to lie down...

I have seen that 30 Days of Blogging meme going around and I was going to start it today, but I think I will postpone. I still have dishes to do and for some reason at 8PM tonight, I decided to wash all the sheets, bedspreads, and comforters. Whyyyyyy?????

So, next time: meme!

Now, enjoy some pie in a jar (OF COURSE I had to taste test!)

Mitt Romney wishes his father was a Latino so it could help his chances in the election? Of all the arrogant, entitled crap I have heard this man say, that's got to be the funniest! Oh, Mittens...what a difficult life you must lead.

What an ass hat.

I feel like I have updates, but I am just too tired to post them. Life is good, though. So there is that. S'up, my two remaining friends on LJ?!

Just kidding...I know there's like five of y'all still out there! LOL...

Ugh

Between the Planned Parenthood ruling and that piece of talking excrement Akin's "forcible rape" comments, I find myself wanting to quote...Rachel Green?

Yeah...I guess so. No matter how you feel on the subject, the fact that men have a bigger say than women (statistically speaking, lawmakers are predominantly male) on this subject just makes me rage.

- I made some awesome chili last night. Omnomnom. It was super easy, too! Brown the meat and onions, dump in canned beans and tomatoes, most of a beer (keep behind a bit for the cook), add a truckload of spices, and cook until you have to go upstairs and go to bed, for crying out loud! We watched a few episodes of Entourage and A League of Their Own while I was cooking and JP gave me all kinds of cool facts about the movie, like how most of the stars were replacements and everyone hated Madonna. LOL!

- I am depressed beyond all reason that we are not attending the Rally to Restore Sanity. I am so tired of everyone shouting at the top of their voices in the political arena - and appalled at the ignorance of many of the Tea Party candidates. I wish I could go and show my support for rational discourse, but I might need that money pretty soon just to survive. : ( Good luck to all the rally goers! Be moderate and proud! Seriously, so sick of the constant state of anger and fear that seems to perpetuate every minute of our lives.

- As you can see, I have given up on the last meme. Oh, well. It was good while it lasted, baby. It's not you...it's me.

- I got invited to a Halloween party, but I'm not going because I am a wuss. I am filled with anxiety at the thought of attending, although I know once I get there, I will have a good time. So it goes, so it goes. Fear of talking to others in a social setting...bites ya in the ass every time.

- I am hungry. Chili for breakfast? LOL...

And finally: it's cool out, we have Ichabod Crane, Charlie Brown, and Garfield Halloween DVDs geared up for this weekend, so really, how bad can life be? Have a good weekend everyone and be careful!
