Midterm Elections & Ed Norton Returns

Hey did you vote yet? I did, yep via absentee ballot. I have voted in every election since I was 18 years old, even for the six years in Germany. I am a firm believer that you can't complain about your government if you don't bother to vote.

I am a little frustrated about the current party choices though. To be honest both parties seem to have their platforms set so far to the extreme end of their philosophy. You may agree with half of what they say and then the other half is so far out there. Last few elections I felt like I was voting for the lesser of the two evils instead of what I really wanted to be represented on.

A viable third party needs to come along and establish itself, just to show the current parties that extremisim isn't the way to go.

Oh and the other day the Norton wannabe emailed me a rejection notice on the position I applied for. It was a form letter and he didn't even bother to change the font so that my name matched the rest of the email. I knew I didn't have the job what like 5 weeks ago? So why was he just emailing me now?

So while trying to be the professional I composed a nice response. I thanked him for the opportunity of interviewing but needed at least one more sentence. I ask my husband and his response was:

"I hope you slip under a gas tanker on a pool of your own blood."

Okay since that wasn't going to work I called my friend (Can I call you my sister now?). Her first response was:

"May you be plagued by a herd of crotch eating camels that chase you through the desert."

I finally went with something along the lines should another vacancy come about to please keep me in mind. With family like them who needs enemies?

I dunno...the whole tanker line would have really kept you on their radar...but I'm not so sure that would have been in a good way.

Voted absentee here too and wish candidates from both sides would stop acting like junior high girls.
