After a very long week of waiting semi-patiently, I finally got my Wii. I shoulda got it on 11.19, but the preorders did not get delivered to FYE like they should have. They still do not have them, actually. I got mine from inside info at Best Buy. I showed up early and was eighth in line, and Keisha was there with me. I shoulda bought her Cracker Barrel like I told her I would, but I was worried that there would be no spots left, so instead she went to McDonalds. But I got my Wii. Sports is great. Twilight Princess (Zelda) is absolutely gorgeous. Oh so much fun and interaction. I enjoy it very much. Hmmmmmm. I recommend that other people at least play one, because it does involve movement and it is very unique.
Anyway, I just wanted to put it out there.
I got my Wii. And it is fun.

Prologue--An Olde Prophecy

And it was shown to me in a vision
That a new Hero would arise,
And with his birth the clouds would darken
And the sun would eclipse,
And the child would cry not.

And he would be marked upon his left hand
With a dead finger, broken off in the womb.
Dragons and scorpions - all manner of beasts -
Will strike at his birth.
But he shall be delivered into the world.

And in those days the world will be dark,
But hidden by a brilliant array of lights,
With automation everywhere.
And the child will grow, taught by his father,
Loved by his mother.

And the world will reject its hero,
But he will fight for them.
And I saw a great battle too glorious to tell,
But it brought bloodshed and death to many;
Corpses covered every street.

And the Hero shall receive a talisman of great power,
And with it he will wage war against the Dark.
And with it, he will defeat the darkness,
And light will reign forever.

**Translated from the 20th century prophet San-Sha ta Nek

negative cam'pains'

"Bob James...He's got a kid screwed up on dope and got pulled over. But ole Bob James, he's a cop, and so he got those charges dropped. Why vote for Bob James? He's just gonna drop you, too....I'm Ed Jones, and I support this message."

Well, election is over. Finally. And I'm glad I don't have to see another one of those stupid, warring commercials until next election. I honestly don't care about their past. What's past is past. I want to know what they're gonna do if elected. That's it. Forget the past.

To be quite honest, though, I didn't really follow the election very closely. I voted absentee three weeks beforehand, and I knew about half of the people running (perks of a small township). Nationally, I don't care who has control of Capitol Hill. Democrat and Republican are just words, just like Religion is anymore. They are adjectives that don't quite necessarily describe a person very well. I prefer to say I am a Jesus follower, not a religious person, not a Christian. I want a house full of people that truly care about the nation and its people, not one who cares about its pockets.
I would like to see a campaign where people say what they're gonna do in office and why you should vote for them, not why you shouldn't vote for their opponents. It's true for advertisements as well. "This is Subway, where your food is healthy, not like McDonalds and BurgerKing." Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhh! I am glad that I typically average ONE hour of television per week, and that is only devoted to Lost. Seriously. I do, however, spend about ten+ hours with my nose stuffed in a book or two or three... Books, better than tv anyday....
Foreverthemore, who cares about negative campaigns. I don't have much of an argument except that I just am one of these people that let the past be forgotten, regardless of how serious it may seem. That probably comes from my faith and my loving nature.

May your days be long and your nights pleasant...
