I find January quite depressing. All the possibilities stretched out before me - it's too much of a burden and it makes me feel like I can't possibly make the best use of it all so why try? 2007 was a bad year. I haven't ever said that before - that I was especially glad to see a time in my life behind me, but wow. Just ... wow.
And now all this Iowa caucus stuff. The downers insist on saying that HRC might be taken out. Please don't let it happen! Every day brings a new reason to love her. Zigzagging on the tarmac! Dodging snipers! Keeping company with baggy-pants funnyman Sinbad! Please don't let her light fade - we haven't even had time to analyze the messages she sends out via her hair dos.

Full disclosure: I have a photo of myself that looks just like the centerpiece of that poster. All big smiles and confident demeanor to draw attention away from the killer black roots. I feel you, Hilly. My sister! (Note to self: Start wearing flag pin on lapel. Also, buy something with lapels.)
Anyhoo, my horoscope says 2008 is an "8" year for me in which I am ruled by Saturn. Power and accomplishment! The stars advise me to take action, plan ahead, seize opportunities. I just don't have the heart for taking action but I can certainly proclaim that HRC is my proxy. There will be seizures aplenty if she hangs in long enough to become her party candidate for president. In fact, Sami is having a seizure about it right now.
For myself, I'm going to take action against that irksome extra "r" in February. The revolution starts tomorrow.
