Screaming Bean

I know as I get older I stop blogging as much...heh. Actually I don't blog as much any more mostly because each of my blog posts are a whine fest. Yeah, work sucks. Yeah, I'm trying to do something about it. Of course, I couldn't have picked a worse time in the economy to try and do this. At least I have a job. Either way, I just keep on keeping on, and hope for something good to happen, and work towards that end. In the meantime, it's my favorite holiday of the year this week...Thanksgiving! Of course, I haven't bought a turkey yet, but I have some potatoes and the beginnings of some stuffing. And gravy....gotta have gravy.

Everyday for the last week or so, I've asked why I am here. Here, being work. Like today for instance. It's Veterans Day. (Thank you veterans!) Me, I'm at work. Why? I have no clue. With banks closed, none of my deals can close. No fed, no wires. So instead, I sat around doing personal tasks in order to keep myself from going slowly insane. I straightened out a medical bill. I networked with two fellow attorneys via e-mail. I applied to four firms. I read a book. I stood and stared out the window a while. Now mind you, our boss is AWOL for most of this. And therein lies the problem. We are all dodging the boss these days. The boss has gone wackier than in prior months. Won't work on any of our trades, putting us in perpetual hold, making all sorts of insane requests, been moodier than...I can't even come up with the rest of that phrase. That's how bad it's been. Billables have been non-existent. And I'm sure I'll catch the brunt of that later, but in the mean time, no one wants to approach the boss to find out what the hell is going on. And I plain refuse to beg to make people do their work. It's not my job. Especially when that person is the boss.

Like most of my fellow Americans, I too was glued to my television last night, along with my computer, keeping tabs on all the election coverage. When I heard about the issues with the ballots in Palm Beach county I started ranting...that we should just force the state to secede, whether they wanted to or not. If it were possible to make the butterfly ballot even more complicated, they succeeded. Luckily, it didn't come down to the Sunshine State. We cheered Pennsylvania, we cheered Ohio, and we cheered Colorado. McCain's concession speech was the best speech I've ever heard him give, even if his crowd couldn't be gracious in defeat. Obama's speech gave me goosebumps. While I sat in bed listening I marveled at how well-spoken and compelling a speaker he is. I know for a lot of people the speech is just considered lip service, but for me it made me think that hey, maybe the light at the end of this tunnel isn't a train after all. Still, I wouldn't want to be in his shoes, this is quite the mess to try and clean up.

I'm sure you've already heard a million pleas to go out and vote today, but here's one more. Stand in line, as long as it takes, and vote! Maybe if you're lucky you'll get a sticker. We never get stickers. Then go and get your free ice cream, coffee, and donut! It's the tasty way to celebrate democracy. I'm still a big believer that today should be a national holiday. We all should be able to celebrate Election Day! I heard over the weekend that 95% of people polled believe that voting is a patriotic act. So be patriotic. No flag pins required. Today we make history!
