I'm bitter about the election. It doesn't really matter whether Bush won or Kerry won, they're both almost equally bad. The sole reason I prefer Kerry over Bush is we can hold Kerry's reelection over his head.

But, of course we got Bush. Which means another 4 years under his reign of terror. ;P As I told Ashlee and Q last night, Bush's is the first presidential administration under which I have actually lived in fear.

The measures banning gay marriage passed in ALL 11 states. In every state but Oregon, they passed with over 60% of the vote (Oregon was 57%). This disgusts me.

On the plus side, I did some design work with Dryice for a bit (and decided I'll need to rip out and redo the object model again :p). And it's been raining in bursts. I hope we get lots of rain tomorrow.

I need to remind myself to keep breathing, and focus on maintaining the self. I haven't been doing enough of that lately. After all, when the self is gone, there's nothing.
