About Me

Laid back; chilled out.

Unlike D, my politically savvy friend, I'm not usually interested in politics. The only exceptions are during the unfortunate post-election goings-on in Kenya earlier this year and, of course, Barack's stunning rise to the [alleged] topmost spot in the world.
[I'm sorry - I meant President-elect Barack Obama. Let me not act like I'm on a first name basis with the man.] I've watched more news this year than I've had my entire lifetime prior to these events.

To use the Hip-Hop generation's lingo to describe President-elect Obama's ascent, phrases not unlike From rags to riches, Barack Obama went:
- From ashy to classy
- From a disgrace to amazing grace
- From the outhouse to the White House

Jokes aside though, he's an exceptional human being. I sincerely hope he does a great job. So, while you're here, check out Obama behind the scenes on election night. And dude has a great sense of humor, [you have to have been following the campaign on a fairly regular basis to get the bulk of the jokes tho] and is a true baller.

Now that's presidential material.

Rome was not built in one day, but there is nothing wrong with some progress.

As downhill as things have been going lately, any progress he makes, even if he only manages to stem the flow into recession, will be significant.

I just hope he stays as focused as he is right now. Dude's swag is ill.

Flattered at your shout-out, and yes, I breathed, ate n slept the elections for 2 years! Now that it's over, I must rediscover meaning, especially since there's no Nip/Tuck yet.

Can't wait for the new season. The teaser commercials they're running have me so hype about the new season!
