I come from a pretty political family…it’s long story, don’t ask. I’m pretty young to be jaded, but I pretty much am.
However, I am a little nervous about the outcome of this election. I am a strongly aligned liberal. However, I am not overwhelmingly thrilled with President Obama. But I cannot support the social and economic platforms of the opponent and his vice-presidential candidate.
I am ready for this to be over.
I need a drink.

OMG. MAKE IT STOP. NPR—you are boring me silly. I cannot take anymore punditry, debating, and senseless political chatter. And of course there was all the Hurricane Sandy coverage, which I listened to interested, but wouldn’t recommend for listening…
Thank god for the Gomers, who start a new podcast season every Fall!

How is it already Friday again…HOW?!?! Not that I’m complaining–I’m mostly just giggling in excitement. Potluck with my lovely yoga dears from OYTT tonight–it’s been too long, can’t wait to see you!
oh deeeeeeeear. I know I’m not going to get any relief until after November 6th, but NPR, PLEASE I’M BEGGING YOU! Please cover something without somehow tying it back to the presidential election!?!?! PLEASE?!?!!?
In the past two weeks, I’ve managed to find a little something via podcast, but also have been on a bit of a Spotify binge in protest, here’s what I’ve been listening to…
“What the ‘Influencing Machine’ teaches College Kids”
Talk of the Nation — September 17, 2012
Had to drive straight to the library and check out this book while listening to this discussion.
since when do I listen to Maroon 5? And like it?!?!
I’m going to try and go through the archives and catch up on the rest…will maybe throw out some more selections over the weekend.

I started “running” and spinning again this week. I’ll be honest, podcasts are not necessarily the best thing to listen to while sweating buckets on a spin bike, but I gotta multi-task people! It’s time to break out that little shuffle!
“Summer Music Preview: Premieres from Cat Power, Avett Brothers, The Antlers, and More”
NPR All Songs Considered — June 26, 2012
“Alec Baldwin: A ‘Rock’ throughout the Ages”
Fresh Air – June 25, 2012
“Ephron: From ‘Silkwood’ to ‘Sally,’ a Singular Voice”
Morning Edition – June 27, 2012
“Political Implications of Today’s Generation Gap”
The Diane Rehm Show — June 27, 2012
I love discussions and examinations of generations. This is a great–listened in the car and there was lots of looking at the radio and saying “YES!”
“Marcus Samuelsson: On Becoming a Top Chef”
Fresh Air – June 28, 2012
Love this guy, but also just love anytime one of the superstar chefs is interviewed. When is Top Chef coming back!?!?

not interested in getting into politics on this blog, but I’m feeling pretty good about Obama’s announcement this week. While I think there are a lot of other important issues that need attention right now (jobs…cough, cough…JOBS…), I still think this is awesome.
Ready for the weekend–a little dinner out tonight, yoga all day tomorrow out at Orbis Farm, Mother’s Day celebrations on Sunday!

I found this online somewhere a few years ago and randomly saved it to my computer.
The print is small, click it to zoom closer — it’s worth it!
I would love to use this in some sort of work of art or home decor piece .
Does that make me weird? whatever…

Had a bit of a rough day–still sick, had to finally break down and go to the doctor–first time in five years! Now on antibiotics, hope I can kick it!
This perked me up this afternoon–more laughing from BLR.
