There were 2 ladies offering up coffee at the bus stop this morning. they were campaigning for a Brian Cahill who wants to be my city/township council man (Ward 2). i spoke with the one lady who runs a diner, she brought up the need for new blood and mixing things up. i live in a socially conservative, fiscally liberal, environmentally eh-"shrug shoulders" & "hang that PETA sign now!" area that has elected a majority Democrat council. go figure. i am a registered dem but i can see the need for a change. we need some independents and socialist worker's party as well. just rep and dem is just as bad as just dem.
i don't know who i'm voting for but when i mentioned 'preservation of open space' the nice diner lady immediately pointed out that most of the land preserved in Old Bridge was done so by private individuals and not by any one on the council going for it. that really caught my attention. i'll have to do more research on that as well as that whole 'imminent domain' thing. it would be interesting to see where the incumbent and the challenger stand on that issue. because it is an issue.
we are now living in an age/with an administration that all the rights of everyday citizens to be trampled on. thanks king george.

end of an era

my lovely nymph glasses that i adore so much have broken. they split on the nose bridge. good-bye to the days of being cool for having cool glasses. now i have to work at it. *sigh* if you click the link and go to their media section, there is a new york magazine cover with them on it. :( i am so sad. but there is one ray of sunshine: my next pair of glasses. i must say that i look awesome in the frames. now i just have to save up for the lenses....ha.

Golden brown texture like sun
Lays me down with my mind she runs
Throughout the night
No need to fight
Never a frown with golden brown

Every time just like the last
On her ship tied to the mast
To distant lands
Takes both my hands
Never a frown with golden brown

Golden brown finer temptress
Through the ages she's heading west
From far away
Stays for a day
Never a frown with golden brown

Never a frown
With golden brown
Never a frown
With golden brown

-the Stranglers

i love this song. it just puts me in such a great mood. i think it will be a good day.
