i was totally going to write a post about my first day of work, but then i started watching our president in a live news conference. wow. he has perfected the art of not even remotely answering a given question. it's impressive! he's even deflecting what seem to be "tougher" follow up questions. and he alternates not answering questions with speaking in a weird, condescending tone and giving a weird look that might be his attempt at a smile, perhaps to "[dis]connect with the people."
he thinks there's something healing about a society where people have ownership. um, how do people acquire ownership again? oh, oh, i know. they buy it. with money. that THEY DON'T HAVE.
now he just pulled an um-kay. perhaps he's been relaxing to south park lately.
i'm curious how bush chooses who will ask the next question. i really hope they weren't all submitted in advance.
as for first day of work, i'm going to stick to "if you don't have anything nice to say don't say anything at all."
seriously, it's not that bad. it's just hard when you're being compared to doing anything you want at any time, with most of these things being fun-related.
