Today was the first time this week that I was able to sleep properly and well. I called my therapist at 3 PM and postponed my appointment until 11:15 tomorrow because I was sleeping so well.
...with the result that the sum total of food that I ate today was one twinkie, one oatmeal creme pie, and a glug of eggnog--each seperately and done only to shut my stomach up so I could sleep more.
Got up at 6 PM, got a shower, then went to choir practice; and as McDonald's had been dinner for the choir director and his fiancee, it prompted me to think, "I haven't had a couple of Big Macs in a while, so that'll be dinner." I even checked my wallet to make sure I had enough money.
Well: I got to McDonald's and saw that they've got a "buy one, get one free" deal on Big Macs right now. So my dinner--consisting of two Big Macs and a medium fry--cost me $5.76 with tax.

Two wholly unexpected economic developments in the wake of the election, both from AoSHQ:
Analysts are baffled that the stock markets lost heavily in the wake of the election for the second day in a row. "But," they say, "we elected the smart one! We elected the one who cares! Why are the stock markets dropping?"
They're dropping because the soi disant "smart" one, the one who "cares", is the one who ran up a stupendous debt and shows no sign of slowing down.
Other unexpected news: mirabile visu we're in a double-dip recession! And, shazam! It only became obvious after the election was over! What a coincidence! How lucky for Obama that this waited until two days after the election was over!
...and if you believe that? Let me sell you this fine beachfront property...

I suppose I needed to hear someone else say it first before I could realize this is exactly how I feel: I didn't leave the Republican party. They left me.
What Borepatch says in that post rather nicely dovetails with my own feelings on this. He finishes by saying, "I'm not the only one, not by a long shot," and he's 100% correct.

Vox Day: "Now, why would would anyone imagine that accusations of child abuse would turn into a witch-hunt, particularly against people who are gay?" Emphasis his.

God knows how long this link will work: an Intel mini-ITX motherboard with a dual-core Atom processor, for $66.
Yes I am still thinking about putting another mobo into the spare mini-ITX case. No there is no real need for it. *sigh*

And now it's 9:43. Where'd the day go?
Oh, yeah--that sleeping thing.
