Saw the first episode of The Office last night. Had some funny parts, but mostly just made me uncomfortable. Ended up spending the rest of the night watching old Futurama on replaytv instead. BTW, if you’re a replay owner, run, don’t walk, to dvarchive. It rules.

I’m excited that Stephen Donaldson is working on a new set of Covenant novels. But he really, really needs to get a new web designer.

I went ahead and put my money where my mouth is and gave a serious chunk of change to John Kerry. I think he’ll probably be an ineffective president, but ineffective is better than the effective slimeballs we have running the show now. Yet again, I regret that the Republican Party chased John McCain away in 2000.

[Later: editing instead of starting a new post because I don’t want to start a big political thread.] I never said I thought McCain was a moderate; I’m well aware he holds a number of conservative positions I strongly disagree with. But I’d rather an honest, well-intended centrist-tending conservative than the dishonest scuzzbag we’ve got or the pathetic excuse for a liberal I’ll happily settle for.
