Not being able to communicate is really irritating me. I went to lunch with my mother yesterday and wrote in a notebook to talk to her. Apparently I don't write fast enough, because she kept trying to guess at the end of sentences. Sigh.

I got a postcard in the mail from my actually local LYS and decided to go check it out. Sale, new Noro, and a remodel? I'm there. I was there for a big disappointment. They'd cut their space in half, as well as their stock. They must be having hard times like everyone else in the industry. I went in the mood to buy, but there wasn't a garment worth of any of the yarns that I liked (which has long been a complaint about the store in question). Oh, and one of the customers recognized me from work and called me out on it. I must have seemed really standoffish because I couldn't chat, but I was so disappointed that I didn't care. I wish the ladies who run the store the best, but I doubt that I will shop there again.

Have I mentioned lately how much I love my new ipod? I do. I am downright smug about it. I fell asleep listening to it last night and forgot to put the sleep timer on. It still had a full battery sign when I woke up this morning (ok, almost afternoon. Obviously, I need my rest.), which would never have happened with the old one. The batteries have improved so much in the past couple of generations of ipods.

I watched a bit of Saturday Night Live last night, since it was a new episode. SNL hasn't been on my to-do list in a long time, but I figured they'd have some good material after being away for months. The news update was excellent, especially Tina Fey's commentary on Hillary Clinton, "Bitches get things done". It's true, and that's what I like about Mme. Clinton. It's hard to be a Clinton supporter in Chicago, which is quite Obama-centric.

I also read this morning that Nader is joining the fray. NO. Please stop ruining elections. In the 2000 presidential election, I kicked one of his campaign signs every day and my love for Ralph Nader has not grown in the intervening years. We have enough fringe candidates already, like Mike Huckabee and Ron Paul. I'm tired of this ridiculous shit. I try to keep up with current events, stay informed, but lately it's been too much. What next? If only the economy weren't in the toilet, I could do what I did in 2004 and leave the country for a month. It was so nice getting away from it all then, even if I did have to listen to people in a tiny pub in Scotland tell me why Bush would get back in. Grrrrr. I'm suffering from election coverage fatigue.
