My first scarf.

I spent most of last weekend mucking around with a cheap skein of yarn, trying to figure things out and teaching myself to crochet. I bought a skein of this awesome gradiated red yarn, only to realize when I started crocheting with it, it was a freakin' boucle yarn. ROFLMAO.

I did a pretty good job. Missed a few stitches here and there, etc, but overall, I'm pretty happy with it. It's so soft!

I hate my roommate.

Seriously. He's drunk and he just brought a drunk date (who works for our company) home with him. And they sat down here and bitched about things and "why in the hell did you get picked to help out the DM?" and "so, what stores are sucking right now"... and neither of them would shut up.

I don't ask a lot. If he brings someone home, they're supposed to go up to his room, which is what he's renting from me. A room with kitchen privileges. Not down here hanging out and screaming and yammering and annoying the FUCK out of me.

I'm glad I don't own a gun. I wish I were joking about that sentiment, but at this moment in time, sadly, I am not.

I can't wait until next March and I can move the hell out of here. When I told him that was happening, he actually said to me, "so, we're looking for a new place?"

Sigh. I told him that I really just wanted a smaller place and to be by myself again, when really the only thing I was thinking was "I just want to be away from your non-stop talking, messy kitchen leaving, drunk ass self. FAR, FAR AWAY."

I hate him.

The Treasury's Financial Bailout Proposal.

From Section 8 of the Bailout Proposal:

"Decisions by the Secretary pursuant to the authority of this Act are non-reviewable and committed to agency discretion, and may not be reviewed by any court of law or any administrative agency."

Are you fucking kidding me? No accountability or regulation of how OUR - OURS! The taxpayers! - 700 BILLION dollars ( $700,000,000,000!!! ) will be spent or handed out?

That's the VERY LEAST that should happen. The VERY LEAST. I just got done emailing my Representative/Senators and I plan to follow those up with phone calls, tomorrow. If this makes you as angry as it does me, please, please do the same. You can easily email your Reps and Senators directly from their official site.

Fucking ridiculous.

Biden and Clinton on Women's Issues.

Most of you may have seen it, but Biden and H. Clinton did a 32 minute webcast discussing women's issues. (Which are actually EVERYONE'S issues.)

It was nice to hear things presented in a calm manner and gives us a bit of insight into what the Obama/Biden plans are for things like health care, domestic violence, FMLA, wage disparity, etc.
