But I am ready for Christmas, damn it! I'm in the spirit! I'm singin' the songs! I'm burnin' the Yankee candles! Slippers, sweaters, and sweats! The three S's! (For colder climates, see Four S's including scarves) I don't care that it's November 13th! What am I saying? November 13th is the Christmas season in its early prime! I am taking a lot of heat from the holiday fascists here at work, but, screw em, I'm goin' anyway. The bus is leaving with or without 'em. They can go on listening to their Kings of Leon until December friggin' 24th if they so choose. I can't help them if they can't admit that they have a problem. I'm diving into the good stuff! On, Bing! On, Harry Jr.! On, Manheim friggin' Steamroller!

I won't even attempt to talk about what it means for our country. There are enough people describing it today better than I could. I can talk about my personal feelings though. It was an historic moment. I felt like I was watching a man land on the moon. Like The Berlin Wall was coming down. Like I was watching "Star Wars" for the first time. If there had been a way to harness the sex had by democrats and like-minded people all over the world last night, there would no longer be an energy crisis. Seriously though, it's just a truly profound sensation of pride, hope, and awe.
YES WE DID!!!!

Obviously this is not without exception, but I find it interesting how people that move to LA maintain fierce loyalty and pride for wherever they came from and tend to bash LA in the same breath while people that move to New York are quick to claim their identity as "New Yorkers." I don't really have anything to say about it beyond that. Just find it interesting, that's all.
