They put the lime in the Diet Coke

I drank them both together. And yay, it's yummy and good! (Unlike Lemon Diet Coke, which I think tastes like Pledge smells.)

I can't seem to type today. Still, of course, on Super Crummy Job, the only one of our rotating tasks that I hate, loathe, despise, and was nearly reduced to tears over because it makes my whole body hurt. I won't go into details unless anyone wants to know, but it's one of those things where we do it this way because Corporate tells us to, and I am willing to bet my house that if just ONE Exec came down from the Ivory Tower and DID this job for just ONE HOUR, there would be a more reasonable, sensible, and cost-effective way of doing it implimented within a day. Mostly I think it's a gigantic waste of time, talent, and paper, and there are definitely more cost-effective ways of doing it. But my back hurts and my brain is fried. So... sizzle...

I stopped and did my duty in the Please Get Bush Out Of The White House movement by casting a vote in the Democratic primaries. It came down to a coin toss for me between two of the candidates, and I'll be content if either of them end up being the final one... just so long as they Please Get Bush Out Of The White House. I put my "I Voted Today" sticker in my bag and thought that maybe, just maybe, if that happens, I might even get my patriotism back and will no longer be embarrassed to wear a flag pin. :P (How do I hate Bush? Let me count the ways...)

See, I like lime in tea, but not lemon. I don't know why. It's just a thang.

Sigh. I spent a lot of time today dithering among candidates and looking up their positions and voting records on lobbying and whatnot. I finally decided to go with my head, and not my heart, and voted for Kerry. I liked Dean, but I think Bush will find fewer weaknesses to exploit in Kerry's experience. (Dean only had gubernatorial experience; Kerry had senatorial and military experience.) Plus I think Kerry's resolve not to increase taxes for the middle class will sell well with swing-vote moderates, although I personally think taxes will have to be raised across the board to get us out of this sinkhole of a deficit.

Anyhoo, I'd vote for a cheese log if I thought it could oust Bush from the White House. Gods help me, it'd make a better president.

As I said, it was a coin-flip. I finally did vote Dean, but I'm content with Kerry's win, because in another minute I might have voted for him. Both have their strikes, both have their advantages, and in the long run you're likely right about Kerry's "electability" and overall strengths. He's also likely to be calmer in the face of Bush's amazing stupidity, which, considering Dean's volitibility, would have made for entertaining debates but have resulted in four more years of Bush! =8O
