Edited on Fri Aug-22-08 02:36 PM by TwoSparkles
...AND you use four-dollar words like "exacerbate."

I like you!

11. That was the word of the day at Toastmasters yesterday.
And my Republican co-worker didn't know what it meant. Ha-ha. Sorry, I am just saying any stupid 'ol thing. I can't stand this anymore.

28. I know what you mean...
I think I'm losing it.

Just remember that we are here--if you need to exacerbate your usage of gutter language--and you need an outlet.

I'm going to sit on the couch with my stuffed bunny and rock back and forth, now.

38. On a side note, exacerbated is one word that's motherfucking hard to pronounce. At least for me.
Anyone have the same problem?

7. I'll start. The Chet Edwards thing? Not cool.
We're supposed to be narrowing down names, not adding them.

And adding a guy who makes Evan Bayh look good by comparison? Cruel.

33. CNN
Paul Bergala and some Republican were discussing the VP picks and they were asked if they thought there was a dark horse and who would it be. The Republican pulled "Chet Edwards" out of his keester. I'm guessing that's where it all derives from.

21. Chet's not a DINO, he's a liberal who poses as a DINO in a very conservative district.
He won't be the choice, but let's not go besmirching a good Democrat for doing what he has to do in the heart of conservative Hell. Without him, they'd put another Tom DeLay sort in office.

14. Whenever I am feeling stressed
I go out to the garage and hit the punching bag.

Punching bag broke. Cigarettes smoked. Coffee supply depleted. Nails chewed.

I'm convinced B is doing this to us on purpose. It is his last real chance to have fun at our expense before he is elected leader of the free world. Yeah, B, it's all fun and games until someone pokes their eye out ...

18. Reminds me of reading days during finals at college
Many years ago. Don't know if it's the same now, but we used to have "primal scream therapy" at a designated time every night, like 9:00 or something. Everyone would fling open their windows or rush outside and scream at the top of their lungs for a few minutes. Need that now!

GAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHH...

For the "it" guy/girl to call you and let you know they want to go out with you. The suspense it a bitch. If I had his number I'd call and ask him if I am ever going to get the call or what!

30. OMFG, I've been up since fucking 3AM waiting for this fucking text message.
I went to sleep and woke up in the middle of the night because I was so fucking worried and now I've been up for 12 hours on less than 4 hours of sleep. And then the fucking MSM keeps jerking our chains and just STALKING the poor people they've decided is the shortlist based on the smart fucking ideas of a few unknown sources close to the Obama campaign. WHAT IS THE FUCKING OBAMA CIRCLE ANYWAY!?!?!?! Argh, I swear, I have no fucking idea who's supposed to be in on this but it's driving me nuts.

35. I must have woken up 5-times last night...
Convinced I had heard my phone.

Then I went back to sleep and had weird nightmares about the candidates. Something about Bayh being a closet pedophile (I watched 'To Catch a Predator' last night so I wouldn't miss any "BREAKING NEWS")

This.is.MADNESS!

And I already know it's Biden, so I don't even know why I'm sweating this.

Garrrrrrghghgh!
