political polyamory

Some of you know about my ambivalence towards monogamy. Don't think it's natural but I do admit that, at times, it's damn practical. Here is my torch song for the upcoming Texas Primary:

There are times when a woman has to say what's on her mind
Even though she knows how much it's gonna hurt
Before I say another word let me tell you I love you
Let me hold you close and say these words as gently as I can

There's been another man that I've needed and I've loved
But that doesn't mean I love you less
And he knows you can't possess me and he knows he never will
There's just this empty place inside of me that only he can fill

Torn between two lovers, feelin' like a fool
Lovin' both of you is breakin' all the rules
Torn between two lovers, feelin' like a fool
Lovin' you both is breakin' all the rules
Words and Music by Peter Yarrow (of Peter, Paul , and Mary) and Phil Jarrel
Don't you love the bisexual subtext in all that?

And all of you Hillary Haters can bite me. Even though, Q, that HC video response to Barack's "Yes I Can" video was, indeed, more evidence that god IS dead.

I'm afraid to click the link. Not a hater, here, but surely one who has to keep reminding herself that nobody's perfect and be glad that our whole field was head & shoulders above those other folk's.

Oh, Lord. I clicked. Please, please, is there an antidote?

Be back later, gotta go scour my brain out...

MK hates you now. She's lost an entire afternoon of Pharmacology to "Hillary for you and me, bring back our De-moc-racy!"

I, however, am thrilled with all the hip new dance moves I learned from the video.

Oh, that video. I'm scratching my eyes out as I type this.

oh, dear constant and sporadic readers, i suck at clear warnings.

too often kind but irritated friends remind me that while nsw hasn't made it into the politeness handbook yet, it doesn't mean i can't jump in and trail blaze cyber etiquette. so this one should have been labeled nssh; not safe for the sighted and hearing.

perhaps screeching macaws, peacocks and bonobos will sandblast the damage away. zoo admission fee is on me.
