Yup, still here
Posted by Jill | 5:51 AM
So here's a list of things I wanted to write about in the last few weeks but couldn't get it together to do:
  • Musings on the end of the Iraq war
  • The uselessness of Harry Reid
  • Lena Dunham, women's weight and the politics of rape
  • A review of The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel and what it says about aging

Might have been good stuff, but I just have too much crap going on to write them. I really hope to be back soon, because writing is the one thing that makes me feel I'm contributing anything at all to society, however meager it is, and without that I'm just another hamster on a treadmill.

Yes, but a witty hamster. And, yes, Reid is a sad pathetic excuse for a Democratic Senate Majority Leader. He's McConnell's reliable bitch and a poor manager of (potential) voting coalitions despite the cynical obstruction of the Goopers.

Jill, as a writer, I understand. Now, regarding those topics you were going to write about: I really want to know what you think about The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel and aging.

I probably should get a life.

I'll take "the uselessness of Harry Reid" for two hundred, Alex.
