It's A Three Ring Circus...Kinda

Well, this month's been crazy so far, and while the storm swirls around me [seriously, it's coming down out there], I figured I'd blog. Football [soccer] games have started. I was able to go to the circus [during school]. AND I watched a house burn down across the road from my home.

I guess I should explain for the last two.

So, every year, my school's headmaster sets it up for an unnamed circus to come and entertain us for one period. It's nice. The team sets up in the gym, we get a show, and everyone has a decent time. There's always a talk about some of the costumes, and some repetition in acts, and increases of prices, but still it's a decent way to take a break from two periods.

As for the house, it was just an unoccupied very old house that had started to break down. Looked decent on the outside, but on the inside was horrible. The owners of the land were going to demolish it, but someone had the idea to torch it, and that's exactly what they did.

Also, MIT decisions come out in on an unknown date this month, and it could or could not be either 10 or 17 days away from now......Yeah...That close. Well needless to say it's hit me pretty hard, and I'm about to go out of my bloody mind. I know that I should be prepared for anything [especially the worse, as someone actually told me yesterday {I love the support I've got}] and I feel like I'm at least decently prepared, even though I have absolutely no idea what to do if the worse does happen. It's a bit like the doctor off of Courage The Cowardly Dog. [referencing the quote, "There is nothing, absolutely nooooothing to worry about, but there's nothing I can do."] I have nothing to be worried about because I've got a pretty decent system of safety nets going, but there's absolutely nothing I can do about it now, and I have absolutely no clue about what to do if the worse happens.

This week is also going to be wild. I've got to interview a WWII teenager, soccer [I'm going to refer to it as soccer because of enough people lecturing me about this whole "being in America" stuff] practice along with a game [or two], and goodness knows what else. One thing I don't have to worry about is my English IV honours work though. I've read all of Night by Elie Weisel [and will recommend it to everyone] and all that's left is a bunch of annoying questions due in, oh say, a week or two. And scholarship stuff, don't even get me started on that. But, to quote the Nader campaign, "Onward."

Speaking of campaigns, John McCain's campaign won big tonight, having successfully nailed the Republican's nomination. So!!! Now we have a field that looks like this:

Republican: John McCain [Oh my we really are fudged now aren't we?]
Democrat: Barack Obama [I'm pretty sure he'll have the Dem. nomination, and already have a...let's say, bet, that he'll become President Obama {it's against my dad so it's not that bad} by November]
Independent: Ralph Nader [Isn't he cute, going out, giving it one more try, lol, all I can do is laugh and wish him the best] [He's already got a VP too, MATT GONZALEZ]
Green: Cynthia McKinney [The Greens think Nader's a "sell-out" so I guess he's like the Green Ron Paul, so Madame McKinney has this nomination down]
Libertarian: Oh wait, Ron Paul's not running for Libertarian......blast...uhhh...maybe that Root guy? [Actually I'd like to see Monsieur Imperato get this nomination, I dunno if he'd get my vote, but why the heck not?]
Constitution: uhhh....Alan Keyes >_>' maybe? [Well they haven't made a decision, but right now, depending on how the candidates decide, the frontrunners are either Monsieur Keyes or Judge Roy Moore]

[There's also the Amondson/Pletten ticket for the Prohibitionist, Moore/Alexander for the Socialist, or Calero/Kennedy for the Socialist WORKER in you.

So now ye're either bored out of you're mind because ye don't care or ye're wondering who the devil these people are. Well, two of these candidates have already debated each other before. I'll let ye search for THAT one. My candidate [ONCE AGAIN] has been knocked out, AND!!! Domo-kun is still awesome.

So, since I'm now going to have to choose between one of these "highly-qualified" and "truly amazing" candidates to give my vote to, I'll be blunt about who I had supported. I have a list.

TEH List:
the reincarnation of Calvin Coolidge
Al Gore
Ron Paul
Steven Colbert
Joe Biden
Sam Brownback

Crazy isn't it? Yeah, I know it has a bunch of different ones on there but sure enough, yeah, they all dropped out. The first three are in order of my votes, but the others are just kind of random. Oh well, enough of the little window into my opinions. It's late, and since I've already moved into the politics area, I'll end with this nice little political nugget...

WHY is Calvin Coolidge your favorite President? And let's not go all Frankenstein and piece together a new president with him. :)
