Cyclor - cannibal lord of the pumpkins!

(no subject)

I tend to avoid politics, because a) they bore me to death, b) most political discussions tend to lead to arguing and/or preaching, c) I'm really only interested in a few issues, and d) a multitude of other reasons. So I don't really know much about what's going on in the world, and I avoid getting into political discussions with people because I generally don't know what I'm talking about and don't care enough to research politics just so I'll be able to make a valid point about something I have very little interest in anyway. And don't tell me why I should care, either.

So all I know is it's basically Obama vs. Clinton vs. a bunch of religious nutjobs. And I don't trust any of them at all, particularly Clinton. But I figured I'd take one of those internet quizzes to see if I agree with any of the candidates, and here are my results:

72% Bill Richardson
65% Barack Obama
65% John Edwards
63% Hillary Clinton
62% Chris Dodd
57% Mike Gravel
54% Joe Biden
53% John McCain
52% Dennis Kucinich
47% Mike Huckabee
44% Mitt Romney
43% Tom Tancredo
40% Rudy Giuliani
38% Fred Thompson
33% Ron Paul

So evidently I tend towards blue, but I am neither blue nor red, nor any color for that matter. It's kind of silly that when elections roll around, it's always a battle between these two parties (neither of which I particularly care for or side with), and other parties are virtually ignored. Though I seem to agree with this Richardson fellow above others, so maybe I'll see what his agenda is. In any case, I still say VOTE CYCLOR!

And no, this post does not mean you should challenge my political viewpoints in the comments (especially since I haven't expressed any other than general apathy), tell me who I should vote for (besides Cyclor, of course - all hail the cannibal lord of the pumpkins!), etc. Now if you say "Ade! This candidate is going to successfully end the war and make peace with everyone, legalize same-sex marriage everywhere, buy everyone ice cream, and has Rainbow Dash as his running mate!" then I might listen, but I doubt any of the candidates play with My Little Ponies, so I'm just going to have to settle for the guy who buys us ice cream. Yes, I'm THAT easily bribed. Make note of that, you'll probably need to take advantage of it someday.

I love my hand!

I didn't feel like cooking tonight (and a cheese stick doesn't count as lunch), so I decided to go to Zaiaka for dinner. Besides, I hadn't been there in a few weeks, since my uncle was in town, and I wanted to visit Meena. Wonderful, as usual. I have a belly full of goodness and leftovers to enjoy tomorrow (because bhindi masala DOES count as lunch).

I've been obsessively scanning real estate sites, looking for potential houses. I'm not planning to move until sometime in April, but it's good to look now, and I'm doing research and educating myself on financial stuff. You see, up until like a year ago, the term "mortgage" referred to the word on the backs of monopoly properties and was something grownups were always blathering on about. But I'll have to have one of those if I want a house, because I sure don't have thousands and thousands of spare dollars on hand. And I don't think they'll accept the roughly 3.5 million Runescape gold I have in the bank. Besides, I already have my own Runescape house (with 2 bedrooms, 3 combat rooms, a chapel, a costume room, a workshop, a bunch of other rooms, a demon butler, and NO bathrooms, because adventurers never pee, poop, shower, wash their hands, brush their teeth, etc.). Anyway, one of these days I'll actually tour a few houses, but right now it's looking and researching.

Oh yes, and my yard looks so much better without the deflated air mattress that had been lying there since September. And the dismembered branches against the house, the squishy little pumpkins, the charred beer cans in the firepit, and other random crap (including an abandoned mop that was there when I moved in). And Rose, I found your glasses.

Yes, things are getting cleaner around here. They'd be even cleaner if the stupid vacuum hadn't clogged - I need to bite the bullet, put on some eye protection and a dust mask, take the thing outside, and promptly get annoyed at Jiraiya for kicking EVERYTHING out of his cage, because that's pretty much what the vacuum is clogged with: rat litter, food, and poo. Yeah, thanks, buddy. Hopefully, putting his cage inside a cat box will catch most of the debris, since the bottom of his cage isn't as high as Emeril's cage. Anyway, at least the craft room is looking good.
