05:25 am - The long, dark tea time
There's something about 5:00 a.m. on a slow night at work. Nothing to work on (though we expect a flurry soon) and so my thoughts wander like the clicking of mouse. Many times, I feel as if I'm wasting away here; not progressing toward anything, just making do. That, of course, is what this job was nearly three years ago when I picked it up. Something to pay the bills after being fired.

I need to find more ways to enrich my spirit so that I make it through these times easily. I am, for example, still pumped about attending the Kerry rally later today. I'm actually looking forward to finding counter-protesters and seeing if they can be engaged in an intellectual discussion of the issues. Hmm. Better bone up at http://www.spinsanity.org and http://www.factcheck.org before I start something like that.

Ah. Yes. That's right. Almost forgot. Unlike the Bush baby's rallies, people of the "opposite persuasion" can actually get in. Interesting. Let us know if anything turns up, eh?

So and btw; think I should go? I'm trying to decide.

I think that, overall, the rally will be a morale booster. Plus, I think seeing the guy running for President in person is an interesting, kinda quaint thing that hits my nostalgia buttons. So I'm in favor of folks going.
