Why do you never have a camera when you need one?

I'm sitting in my bare office surrounded by boxes with nothing to keep me busy but my dearest internetz. We are moving offices. Down the hall. Shifting around the 2nd floor. So everything has to be packed and unplugged ready to go at 5 so they can start the move at 8 am Monday morning. Which means I can get basically nothing done today or Monday. Which is fine because I have a wee bit of short timer syndrome anyways. I am a little sad I didn't bring my camera to take a picture of my 1st real office after 5 years in cubicle-land. I can take a picture of the new office but it won't be the same because I took home my pictures and personal items already since I am leaving a month and a half. I am not going to waste my time redecorating an office I will be in for 7 weeks.

Speaking of not bringing my camera. I went to a Mike Huckabee rally today. Yes, yes I know 99.5% of bloggers are liberal soI will try to contain myself so as not to scare away my 3 readers. It was really awesome though. I have never been to one before and I certainly didn't expect him to come out and play Sweet Home Alabama on the guitar with the band that opened for him. Then have Chuck Norris come out and sing his praises. His speech was amazing too. I wish he got more air time with the news. I don't see how anyone can listen to him and not vote for him but I guess people feel the same way about their candidate du jour.This is why I don't discuss politics on my blog. I can feel my shoulders tensing up and my face getting red just thinking about it.

Did I mention 33 more days? Oh, its tacky to countdown? Nevermind...

Hahaha, I actually just said at lunch today, "How can anyone listen to Mike Huckabee and vote for him?"

This is what makes politics so contentious and exciting at the same time. That's great you went to a rally- getting involved is fun- and regardless of my opinion on the speaker, I would never turn down an opportunity to hear a candidate speak in person. And the Sweet Home Alabama serenade and Chuck Norris appearance are very cool :)

I'm always hesitant to post about politics because liberal or not, people are opinionated and harsh, you know? I am proud to know a variety of people who don't agree with me. I can't imagine how dull life would be if you surrounded yourself with people who nodded along to the things you said. A great ego boost, sure, but dull nonetheless.

That is so true! I try to always have a camera with me, but always the one time I really need one.. I've forgotten it...

Good luck with the office move!

I wouldn't vote for Mike . . but Chuck Norris is a different story!

I actually voted for Ron Paul in the VA primary...but I'm not opposed to Mike Huckabee (however, ask my husband and he says he refuses to have a president with such a funny-sounding last name...lame, huh?). I'm not too opposed to Obama, either...strange as it may be. I'm not too fond of McCain, but he's better than Hillary, who is flat-out scaring me, especially now that she's getting snippy. I never appreciate negative campaigns. Don't keep telling me what your opponent is doing wrong, just tell me what you will actually do right.

Regardless of one's candidate of choice, it's so exciting to be all riled up about the elections. I love when there is a candidate I can support with complete passion, admiration and hope.

I have never been to a rally and I really regret this!

I have a lot of respect for Mike for sticking with it this long. I have voted both ways in elections (republican and democrat) but this time around I feel like we really need a change and (as you know), Obama is my man. I actually made my first ever political monetary donation to him last week!

Keep posting about politics -- it keeps things interesting!

Yep, I am a diehard liberal, but I think Mike Huckabee has a great sense of humor. I liked him on SNL and I appreciate the fact that he doesn't take himself too seriously. Good for you for going out and trying to learn more about the candidate you are interested in. I am horribly embarrassed to admit that I raced to the polls at the very last minute still undecided and uneducated and voted for one of the candidates based on one issue that meant a lot to me. Still not sure if I made the right choice...

Huckabee was ten minutes down the road from me today and I almost went. I just didn't get going to get out the door and see him. I am sort of regretting it now. I wanted to get a picture of him with my baby.

And I agree about the news thing! They covered Hillary and Barack visiting, then a construction site hitting a gas line that made the employees evacuate a Walgreens, then they showed Huckabee and Chuck Norris.
