I spent last night on a Zoom call with Rudi and a couple friends from shortly before midnight (they’re all out West, and I’m a night owl) until nearly 2:30. I was also working on a presentation for this afternoon at the same time.

When I got off with them, I emailed the Powerpoint to my boss, ate an ice cream sundae, put on the tv, and pulled out the laptop to write this blog post. And then promptly fell asleep on the couch, exhausted by the day’s activities and the crushing disappointment that we don’t know much, except that way more people in our country suck than I’d hoped. (I know, I know. They don’t suck. They just … live in a world where it makes sense to hand your car keys to someone who, in the past has driven your car full speed into a brick wall, and now wants to take take your little kid for a spin on a mountain pass at midnight in a huge storm without a seat belt on. While drunk. And high. And a jerk.

Okay, well, I guess I have to go get ready for a work day that includes a four-hour strategic planning meeting. I’d tell you to think good thoughts for me, but keep them with the fate of the country. My meeting will wrap up by day’s end; I can’t say the same for this nightmare.

At my yoga class yesterday, the teacher started by listing some people to offer intentions to for the practice (lol, I’m still getting used to the yoga mindset) but the first she said was for Americans. Classwide chuckle.
Also, my darling grade 12 physics class was all abuzz this morning, checking online how Biden was doing
There is more of you also hoping and wishing than appears from the voting results. Nice description of those other voters.

I applaud your metaphor. Personally, I would not at this point have walked back on “they suck” and that bothers me, because I don’t want it to be true, I just don’t have the energy left to argue anymore “no really, you are a decent person somewhere deep down” with the people who repeatedly insist to my face that they are absolutely nothing of the sort.

“They suck” is much nicer than what I have to say about them. Let’s hope for some good news tomorrow.
