::trying hard to give a shit

3 10 2006

There’s a lot to be outraged about lately, but honestly, I’m having a hard time caring.

There’s the House Republicans scrambling to get away from the whole Mark Foley thing, shaking their heads and denying for all it’s worth that they knew nothing about the whole thing.  Family values and all that.  Can’t be fucking teenage boys and crusading to save the world for God at the same time, you know.

Then there’s the whole who-knew-what-when thing about the Al Queda menace that the lovely and talented Mister Woodward is stirring up, and the whole Clinton versus Wallace thing last week, in which Bill Clinton proved once again that he’s got balls the size of Texas. 

But I really don’t care.

Elliot started standing on his own last week.  Takes a faltering step or two every now and then.  He turns 1 in two weeks.

Zachary has a girlfriend.  In spite of his obsession with Warhammer 40,000, and his desire to build robot insects and use them to take over the world.

Liam is no longer wearing pull-ups at night, opting instead to wake me when he needs to go to the bathroom.  When I try to lay him back down in his bed, he almost always says, “Can I cuddle with you, Daddy?”  And I bring him to bed.

Christine is looking better than ever and is about to become a practicing dula.

These are the things that occupy me these days.

screw the rest.
