|How I wish Toby was in charge of the country

I'm sort of cranky with all of my shows right now (particularly you Sleepy Hollow, what kind of fuckery was that) and the election news isn't helping with my overall grumpiness level. Although I suppose Congress can't actually do less than they're currently doing and almost no real work ever gets done between midterms and a presidential election cycle, so there's that. |
I don't think I ever really talked about my years working in politics here, nor probably should I, but it's so funny and bittersweet to see my former colleagues still living life by election cycles. They'll all get fired in the next week, spend the next two months goofing off, and then get re-hired and move somewhere like Iowa or Colorado and start the whole shebang all over again. I miss it occasionally, but mostly, not at all.
Speaking of personal stuff, I recently had it confirmed that I'm going to spend at least the first five months, possibly more, in Paris next year. I lived in Italy for a year, like eight years ago so I'm excited to have the chance to spend some real time in Europe again, although things like housing, cellphones, my truly abysmal french, etc, etc are cause for some concern.
Also, after taking an eight year break, and then writing more than 50,000 words since May, my writing well completely dried up. Dead. Gone. Zilch. Maybe I'll see it again in eight years.
