Feb. 13th, 2008

I've spent 2 or 3 hours over the last week putting up the closet door in the spare bedroom (the one taking the place of the gaping hole that had always been there before). It's been surprising how difficult it is to get it just right. It's all done now, and the top right corner rubs the frame just a little bit. It's almost imperceptible.

Before every nail, I could spend forever fiddling around. It really brings out my indecision paralysis. Each nail makes more permanent whatever imperfections are already there, so I always want to fiddle with it a little bit more. Then as I come to terms with the fact that it won't be perfect, I want to leave the rest for later.

And then I realize, as usual, that if this is what I'm agonizing over - life is pretty good. And yea verily, 'tis. ^____^.

This is what's making me laugh my ass off right now -

Frisky Dingo - S01E08 - Blind Faith - at about 4:40 when the LARPers do the "genre mixing alert". "Baffling". haha. The one in the front passenger seat looks like me when I don't cut my hair.

Also, a few minutes before that when the Stans cannibalize the fallen Stan.
Bush presses House on surveillance bill

This is really bothering me. Especially the retroactive immunity for telecoms. If they hadn't done anything illegal, why would this be necessary? I'm sure the reply would be "9/11 changed everything", but that's bullshit. Nobody is above the law, least of all the people that are supposed to enforce it. 9/11 did not change that.

terrorists are planning new attacks on our country ... that will make Sept. 11 pale by comparison

I smell fearmongering! I have no doubt that this is true, but it has always been true. And your cat is planning to poop in your shoes, and your neighbor is thinking of different ways he could fuck your wife. We don't let these things consume us, and we can't. As I've said before, more people die from heart disease every couple of days than died in 9/11 over 6 years ago. Get a grip!
