I'm So Afraid
Don't get me wrong, I still have plenty of stress, but I'm still rebounding from lack of sleep for those seven nights.
And yes, I know it's been a week since the Series, but the timing went right into the end of this election.
It's too much too soon.
Sure I'm on an antidepressant, but the dosage is far far too low to get me through this. While it is an antidepressant, I am not actually on it for sad-sack moments.
We flipped around tv last night, interested in hearing results, but feeling frustration at making pseudo-calls based on 9% of the votes tallied. The "news" folks were covering all bases, all angles....and none of it (or little) based in actuality.
And if I had to hear one more person call it "an historic election" I was going to barf. They all said it, though possibly none more than Anderson Cooper. He'd say it would be "historic" if Clinton won. Then say the same thing about (t)Rump.
Well, of course it would be historic. Presidencies usually are. And by usually, I means ALWAYS. Even Harrison's 30 day administration is historic. It is, after all, history.
But like some of the World Series games, this is far too difficult to watch. It is 22:47 as I type this and Trump is ahead in the Electoral College.
FUCK. This is scary.
As for the House, Republicans keep that. It amazes me with their single digits approval rating, that these morons get (re)elected. Voters have no one to blame but themselves. Why would / should the Representatives change their behaviour if they keep getting their job back - no matter how shitty they do their job?
I don't think I'm going to like what I wake up to in the morning, but I'm not going to stay up. It's too tense and way too much on the line.
I know I "joked" about wanting to see (t)Rump win, so all these believers in him will see how he makes a shambles of everything, but now it's not funny. It's all too real. Or potentially real.
We (read: I) couldn't keep on a news station for any period of time. We jumped to any number of reruns of the Big Bang Theory or Gilmore Girls.
As you can see, even the Weather Channel was getting in on the 'event'. ...and I'd much rather hear "you weather on the 8s" than to hear Wolf Blitzer go county by county on the Florida count.
I'm going to pee and go to bed.
