I liked her before she got cool.

No, really. I had an earlier post about Rachel Maddow before the election frenzy kicked off. Before she started showing up every night on MSNBC.  And before I found this great picture that serves as a great place holder until my next legit post idea comes along.

I’ll figure out something to write about, don’t worry. I’d post about Obama, but I’m so, so scared that the dream will die that I’m slightly paralyzed. I hope to God he wins. For the first time in years, a major US official has gone abroad and hasn’t faced burning flags. And McCain needs to shut up; he went on a “victory lap” abroad, too, but no one cared.

Well, back to my comfort zone: so far my thesis has been picking up. I’m not calling it a novel yet. It feels safer with the label “thesis.” But it’s been going in fits and starts all summer, but I figured out a few scenes that accomplish a lot of things that original draft lacked. There were huge swaths of writing that were receiving band-aids when they really should have been in traction. Sca-ry. Hopefully, everything will improve.
