Do you hear that?



It's the sound of nothing. No election calls, polls, ugly ads, people calling each other names.

It's the sound of normal. Breathe it in.

3. Yeah, I thought my email provider was down...

I'd been averaging over 100 emails/day...most asking for $3 or more - UGH! - so today, I need to clean out my deleted file, for one.

It is wonderful.

Only problem is, the Republican House members are dominating the airwaves. I'd forgotten what Boehner, McConnell and Cantor looked like. I was hoping they would hide in the cloakroom until after January.

4. I don't know about that.

I had two business suited men come knocking on the door this morning. Ties, starched shirts and clipboards. Yes, they could have been Jehovah Witnesses, or, they could have been members of the new Republican retraining team.

I sent them away without finding out. Still had pillow hair.

5. You dodged a bullet. Or a bully. Or something.

I answered the door once to 2 of them with an entire livingroom run rolled up in the hallway and asked them if they'd help me haul it out to the curb. The looked horrified and left.

Only problem is, I'd have to keep a 24X16 carpet rolled up, filling my hallway, 24/7 for it to work again.

6. I don't know about that

I saw a headline this morning talking about who was running in 2014. I did not click on it. But it's coming -- sooner than you think.

10. At least they didn't win. We did.

And those hateful, racist, ugly, feudalistic members of our society were slapped in the face by hope, progress, love and unity. THAT'S what I choose to focus on, and it feels good!

13. feudalistic is the term I've been using, too. Somehow, if they turn us into slaves

without healthcare, we'll still buy enough goods and services to keep the U.S. economy chugging.

If they ever got what they wished for, it would all crumble around them.

They want to turn the US into a polluted China or India, without standards of living or clean air water, or upward mobility.

This species has no chance, and this planet has no chance, if we don't start to curtail our greed and hostility.

11. It is great to turn on the t.v.

and not hear Romney telling Obama to go back to Chicago or some other crap.

I have been enjoying Fox News for once and consider it my comedy hour.

For the moment, I'm as happy as can be.
