Unemployed and downtrodden, it’s the mood of the day. I recently lost a bid for State Representative to a 33 year old boy who lives at home with his mother and father and mows the lawn at a golf course. It’s a bit demoralizing to lose that way. Did I mention that his mother is the current Representative who has termed out? I guess that’s the bit of slightly tarnished silver lining that I could apply to the situation. Any way you cut it, it still sucks. When you are involved in a campaign you spend your mornings, noons and nights completely engrossed with your campaign. You have to always be “on” and learn to speak in “sound bites”. Anything you say can and will be misquoted in the press.
I’m bitter. Bitter and angry.
That’s the mood for the day. I feel the need to go to a shooting range, but honestly my pajamas are very comfortable and I don’t think I should go out in public in them. Though, it wouldn’t be out of the ordinary for this particular area. It might even improve my “street cred” around here. Just for giggles, yesterday I went out after church (no, the roof did not fall in when I walked inside) to Wal-Mart (aka hell in a brick building) wearing a long sleeve t-shirt, shorts, my UGGS and a ponytail. It was very freeing. My airbrush makeup machine is back in it’s box, waiting for a time when it’s needed to give me a camera-ready appearance.
I’m not sure what to do with my day today. When you have too much time on your hands you tend to get absolutely nothing done.
