Rock The Vote

Choose or Lose, Baby. Rock The Vote.

Remember when Martha Quinn and all the other MTV jerkoffs were trying so hard to make voting seem cool to our disenfranchised youth? Ah, the innocent 80's and 90's. Damn kids weren't voting enough. Some of them even chewed gum in the hallway.

I rocked the vote last night, with M and the Buggins, who isn't yet totally clear on the "V" sound and thought we were going on a "boat". So in the middle of the little voting room, she was screaming "Going to Boat! Going to Boat!!". Yeaaah. Rock the Boat, baby.

Speaking of rocking the boat, we really stuck it to ol' G-Dub last night. Republican or Democrat, liberal or conservative, blah blah blah. I just really like the fact that, despite all of the immense power inherent within the presidency, we can still stick it to him if we don't like what he's doing. No electoral college in the congressional or gubernatorial elections. Just us. We kicked Dubya in the pantalones. Sorry George. Now, take these cookies. And this milk, careful not to spill. Go sit in that comfy chair in the corner, and try not to make any loud noises. We'll come and get you in 2008 when it's time to leave.

My state (MA) elected it's first black governor. It seems odd to me that that is such a big deal. He ran against a woman, who would have been the first woman elected. That was a big deal too. What is it with this country? Margaret Thatcher was running the UK decades ago. And don't forget Cleopatra, Queen Elizabeth, Catherine the Great. A woman running things is really not a very new idea. One visit to my home proves that point.

Started Lupron this morning. I was like a shot wizard. The reason for that is that I went to Shot School yesterday. I went to the clinic (BY MYSELF) and got a lesson in how to use my wife as a pincushion. I am now officially an expert in syringes.

The nurse who taught me was a middle aged woman. Not especially nice looking, but certainly not homely, either. The thing about her was that she has got the most incredible colored eyes. They are like a pale, sky blue. I don't think I've ever seen eyes that color. And, she happened to be wearing a p.atagonia pullover that was EXACTLY the same color. Exactly. Now, this is no ordinary color, it's like "pale blue #423534". Hard to replicate in nature. And the P.atagonia really made them pop.

So of course I said something. That's just my nature. When it comes to things like this, I just have no filter. I said "Wow, you know your eyes exactly match your pullover, it's really a very nice color". She looked at me in amazement, and then sort of stuttered a thank you and got all weird. It occurred to me as I was leaving that she may have thought I was hitting on her. While I was learning how to shoot my wife up with fertility drugs.

Hey nursie, if you are reading this, I wasn't hitting on you. I just liked your eye color, that's all. Get over yourself.

Cute blog, Smashy.
Love the Spackle post. It is Spak Filla here in Oz. You're a funny guy, cute, cute, cute.

Just realised I typed Smashy, not Smarshy. Maybe this will become your new nickname - or you could Spackle that one!

Rumour Miller said...

I do that too. Forget my filter at home and just blurt things outta my mouth... ahhhh that's why DH really loves me. You know, when I totally embarrass the shit outta him because I left my filter at home.

FYI - DH has become a fan of your blog.... he now reads it as much (probably more) than I do.

Katie said...

She was probably just surprised to receive a compliment. Nice of you to do, by the way. You may have made her week, month, life.

GLouise said...

Aww- you probably made her day!

One Mother's Journey said...

I think it's really sweet you said that to her. I'm sure she was just surprised. I'm sure you made her day.

serenity said...

I agree with the pp- some people just don't know how to take compliments.

Way to go - you and the Buggins rocking the boat!

Becky said...

I'm glad to know that you and Mrs. S decided to go for it one more time- I'm rooting for you!! Must also say that I now totally revere my DH because he can give shots like a pro--and not freak out like me! When I married him I knew I had a good guy but until all of this didn't realize how spectacular he truly is. You're in the same boat (vote?) in my opinion. You rock.

spark said...

LOL!!!! I am going to pee my pants! She totally thought you were hitting on her!!!!!

And glad that the first shot went well! Hope that M doesn't get Lupron-induced headaches.

Piccinigirl said...

you made her day, I just know it!!! thanks for the giggle !

Good luck to M with the Lupron. Be gentle!!

Leave it to my State, good ol' Virginny, to be the one holding the Dems up from taking control of the Senate. God, I hope it doesn't come to a recount, but sadly I think it is.

I love it-Rock the Boat!

HE HE HE.... you make me giggle Smarshy.

theoneliner said...

and now rummy is gone, too. don't let the door hit your a$$ on the way out....

it was nice of you to say that to the nurse. you prolly just freaked her out. or maybe you had a huge bat in the cave and she couldn't look you in the eye without laughing so she had to act all serious. or maybe she read your post about the $500. filling...

i joke around with male lawyers all the time...and i hate,hate, hate when i can tell one of them thinks i am hitting on them. it makes you feel all slimy.

you know she's going to remember you. The next time you are there you should play into her ego. When Mrs. S looks away lick your lip and look at her with your best come hither look. It'd be too funny. Oh, you have to ..it'd make her week.

Hey Oneliner, a couple points:

1) What the hell is a bat in the cave? Is that a booger?

2) I know what you mean, with the whole lip licking thing, but guys don't really do that. That's kind of a chick thing. But I appreciate the idea...

MrGali said...

LOL - you're going to get a reputation at the clinic. ;)

I bet you made that nurse's day. She probably told all her nurse friends about how you hit on her. I would have said something too, I always make comments like that. Do you think she would have thought I was hitting on her, too?
