As it turns out, nobody noticed that I just drank cranberry juice the whole time, except the waitress, who seemed to have trouble grasping the notion that I wanted “just” cranberry juice. Idjit. I hope she’s in one of those good husband-hunting sororities, because she ain’t gonna make it on her brains.
I also found out, to my disappointment, that an ex-coworker of mine who I always thought was really smart, fairly hot, and had a bad attitude in a good way…is voting for Bush. Because (get this) “there hasn’t be another attack since 9/11 so he’s doing a good job with homeland security”.
Christ. When somebody who is smart enough to have a degree in finance and is working on a second degree in computer engineering can have such obviously stunted skills in basic logic, I start losing hope.
