Friends and Politics

You know there is nothing more annoying when friends won't listen to you when you make good points about politics. You know there is nothing more wonderful than arguing with friends about politics.

Mike and Barb came over for dinner last night. They were impressed with our new big place which made Jason and I happy. I made up some chicken enchiladas, with a couple of side dishes.

We ended up watching part of the RNC and I get too emotional when talking about politics and I always have (Jason and I have gone rounds in the past on issues) and I do like to play the "the other guy has no good points" angle. But always fun to talk about...frustrating....but fun and makes me know I want to know more about each team so I can argue better....read: well you're guy is old is not a good argument.. (well good enough anyways). Plus it's hard when you are arguing with people that are not going to shift an inch....it's not those people you have to talk to. It's the people that are on the fence....and those that don't live in Illinois where it might make a difference (Hi Mom!!!) that you have to talk to.

Today is Friday. Woot. Tonight Jason and I are going to be very exciting and do some laundry and watch Psych...which no one won my fun little game yesterday. Cloudy...Chance of Murder is an episode title from that show.

In other news our new mattress is too comfortable. I can't get out of bed in the mornings.

Tomorrow we go to Fort Wayne to be with Jason's parents and help out. Jason's grandfather's funeral is on Monday an the viewing is on Sunday. We are going early just to be there and help where we can.

Alright, well that's all from these parts. Happy Friday all.

Aww. I heart you!

We can still be friends, right? Plus it's not like our vote counts for anything here, ya know.

Let's fuck it all and move to Canada!! Eh!? :)

So sorry to hear about Jason's grandpa - my thoughts and prayers are with you two! You'll still be my friend if I went and helped out at the RNC, right? I sent you and invite to the new private blog, but I'll resend.

Jeff and I ALWAYS find ourselves on opposite sides of the political spectrum. We dont usually fight over it, but we definitely do get frustrated quite often. I think we want to share in excitement over a candidate, or political party, or something ... just once. But when we share our thoughts and feelings it usually turns into one person getting their feelings hurt :) Oh politics!
