in times of shrinking expectations...the bread party rules supreme

november seventh.

get out and vote.

most of you know how i will be voting, (some may even be suprised to know that i'll choose a democrat or two) but i feel the need to say something...that perhaps is true of a heartless conservative:

i love negative campaign ads. they spice up everything--providing me with some much needed dirt on one candidate--and absolutely nothing about the other.

but really, what in life isn't negative these days.

i can sit infront of the TV for ninety straight minutes...watching the 5 o'clock news, national news, and 6 o'clock wrap-up without learning about one positive thing that happened over the duration of the day.

some of you may contend, "but kubas, with basic cable you have no exposure to the real world." i see the same things on ABC, FOX, NBC, CBS--nothing "positive" is happening.

and don't even get me started on commercials. i can't stand it when people gripe about how "[insert major party candidate] said some inappropriate words about [insert other major party candidate.]" have you seen TV lately?

it never fails that each day subway tells me how much better their food is than the other major food chains. verizon wireless has more minutes than t-mobile which, somehow, makes them better. t-mobile is cheaper than motorola. motorola is older than unicel. everyone can agree that unicel just blows. excuse me, i don't even own a cell phone. eleven times a day i'm informed that nine new toyotas get more than 30 miles to the gallon, but the average chevy only gets 25. but wait! chevys have 4 star crash ratings, unlike any 3 1/2 star dodge. apparently dodge has better customer service and warrantees than toyota...so i am forced to live with even more of these commericals. perhaps i should try taking lunesta because, fortunately, i won't become dependent. then again, ambien CR allows me to fall asleep faster and longer. maybe what i really need are more commercials clarifying how much the other brand sucks.

so to you, mr. pawlenty, and you, mr. kennedy--keep 'em coming! you make the one constant in my life that much more enjoyable. i'll see you in 12 days.

I always have the strongest urge to throw something at the tv... But it is useful for Peterson's news quizzes.

What Tay meant was that it takes a village to teach a child vulgarities. It's not the Ivy League's fault; it's Hanover's.

It is refreshing to see a commercial on TV that has nothing to do with politics and buy-now schemes. Gone are the days when Flavor of Love reflected the true entertainment values of America, to be replaced by the jaded election hopefuls and cheaper expensive phone plans. Don't let the world watch you! Avoid technology and its backlash and lead a self-reliant life in the grasps of nature's whim. Rediscover your soul and make your chakras glow with self acceptance and love for others. Take time to look out the window and let out a sigh, releasing the frustrations built up over the incoherence of class lectures and endless assignments. Read a book, draw a picture, play your instrument and let your spirit fly with glee!

What? It's a good commercial.

It's like that website that shows the picure of a model and then shows you how she was digitally changed to have brighter eyes, bigger hair, smaller nose, augmented cleavage, and a skinnier abdomen.
