(unlikely dreams)

Good news! Faith Hill and Tim McGraw are bashing the government for their 'embarrassing' response to Katrina. Hopefully this will take some of the heat off the Dixie Chicks - all the Jacksonville country stations have boycotted them ever since they made those anti-Bush comments, but now two more major artists are joining them. Hooray!

(Hello to all the government officials who have nothing better to do than monitor the website of a liberal college student (and the e-mails and telephone calls of her liberal mother). If you haven't figured out yet that we're not 'dangers to society' - just two of the 66% of Americans who hate our president - then I pity your inferior intellect.)

Anyway, the school week is all but finished, the swim week is finished as of an hour ago (a fact for which my tired arms are very grateful), and I'm working on packing for spring break in Jacksonville - one bag of dirty laundry plus stuff I'll need over the course of the week, one bag of stuff that can go home and stay home, and one bag of stuff that can go home and stay in the bag until August, and grad school, roll around. Plus the ever-present swim bag and laptop bag. I'm making progress, albeit slowly.

Tomorrow is Latin exam number two, and it's not going to be easy. I pulled a 95 on the first one with minimal studying, but we've added two more declensions and conjugations since then, plus a lot more vocab. Hopefully I can repeat that performance if I buckle down and start studying now. I took a (nightmare-ridden) nap this afternoon, so that may give me a little extra firepower towards actually working instead of playing on the Internet like I usually end up doing.

However, tomorrow is also the last day of school until the 20th, woohoo! I plan to spend the break (a) doing the River Run, (b) sleeping, (c) working for Runways, (d) swimming with the HLJ team, (e) going to the beach, (f) searching for a low European airfare for May, and (g) enjoying showers that stay hot longer than 8 minutes. No huge plans, but that's a good thing. I'm due for some rest.

And the authorization that makes disaster relief a Federal matter is found exactly where in the Constitution??

Moreover, as much fun as it to bash old Shrub, it is worth remembering that Bush is NOT running for office any more. If I were looking to win the midterm elections or the big '08 elections, I'd stop beating a dead horse and start figuring out what I was going to offer the sheeple. :-)
