I think we are finally seeing the Sens of last year return! 6-2 over the Leafs is a score I'll take any day. Lets hope they've decided to repeat last season, but in reverse - suck for the first 7 or so games, and kick ass the rest of the year.

I only got to see the first 4 goals, then I felt confident enough that I could switch over to Veronica Mars. Yes, I'm that kind of fan. Nothing I do is going to change the outcome of the game. I don't jinx things by saying 'shutout', I was my underwear during the playoffs, I'll even turn the channel if I'm bored.

Gotta know - butter, salted or not?

Sometimes it's better to be oblivious...

I'm not one to usually dwell on these things, and most of the time I honestly forget about them, I tend to exist more in the moment, but it struck me last night that my original due date was last Wednesday. I didn't get on this track because I was sitting alone pining, but rather because I was wondering about my friend 'D' who is due today. It really, honestly was like a punch in the stomach and caught me completely off guard.

I don't expend energy to mourn for what could have been, because the reality is that there is no baby in our life and our lives have progressed down a different path. I do hope that we are not on this path much longer, but it does nothing for me or our relationship to look over at the 'what could have been' and want to be there. If I do that, I'm not enjoying the road I'm currently on. So I had my moment of mourning and then carried on. I'm sure there will be future days of mourning or anger or sadness, but for now the idea that we will one day be parents is like a carrot on a stick helping us on the way. Even after all these years I still manage to find hope somewhere.

I just received word that 'D' headed to the hospital at 5:22 am this morning, Baby Boy is on the way. How often does that happen?

What a jackass, Rush Limbaugh calls Michael J. Fox a fake. He thinks he is being big by apologizing? He is a small and petty man and can't even get the apology right. I think maybe Rush has gone off his meds.

These distraction tactics drive me insane. Focus should not move from the people actually running for office. No one is voting for Michael J. Fox or Rush Limbaugh. They may be personifications of the polarization on specific issues, but don't get distracted by the bright, shiny objects. It is not the politicians making these statements, it is entertainment personalities. This dialogue should be reported in People magazine, they will never be running the country (although they may testify before congress - again something I don't really understand), they are expressing an opinion and irrelevant to the voting process.

Sure, one could say that this controversy has brought more focus to Claire McCaskill's Senate campaign, but is she a one-trick pony? Is this the voice or view of Democrats everywhere? Bringing this to a national level trivializes the voting process. Is this the only issue she has an opinion on? Does every Dem candidate hold the same position? So what are the national news teams reporting? What are people basing decisions on?
