i'm really not all about this snow. because, really, winter should be over & snow should stop messing up my plans. nine inches and counting; ten dollars on not going to baltimore tonight. listen to me grumble, oh my.
i've claimed this old typewriter in my sister's room as my own & have relocated it to the hardwood floor of my room, alongside the burning burning heater. there's no ink ribbon & the paper doesn't feed correctly, but that isn't going to stop me from clickclickclicking away. graphite over imprinted typecasting is just as effective as actual ink. and scrolling the paper and moving it around by hand provides for a much more interesting array of letters, words, & sentences.
i must say that i am thoroughly impressed by the number of people & demonstrations in various cities, yesterday. and i wonder if it will really matter. i would like to think it would; and that there's no way Bush can go to war with this much opposition, but my hopes on that are dwindling. because, really, as much as this war has been built up, how in the hell could he back down now? there's not a chance that he could just step down without looking like a horrible idiot, moreso than he does already. and then you have the whole concept of him wanting to 'make his mark on history'. he pretty much knows he will not gain re-election, so why not go out with a bang? and why not help out his oil buddies in the process? don't get me wrong, i don't in the least think anyone should give up on their beliefs & staunchly think that the protests should continue, especially since they're gaining support day by day. because, regardless if the administration listens or if they do as they please, at least we know & will be able to say that it was a war that we didn't support and that's something right there. plus, still have holdout faith that the administration will have enough sense to realize how devastating the war will be, in terms of so many things.
political rantings in the first entry & it doesn't get any better than this.
