"...And there's reason to believe that maybe this year will be better than the last..."

Pretty straightforward article about former Serb leader Karadzic on CNN.com today:


It's interesting to see how post-war sentiment in the former Yugoslavia countries keeps changing. In the age of the internet and instantaneous communication, we all hear about rallys and protests as they happen, or in this case, before they happen. One has to wonder if all of this civilian political participation happened after WWI and WWII. Of course we all hear about citizens rallying around their heroic leaders in countries that were allied with the United States, but what was it like elsewhere?

It's fascinating to me to see how countries redevelop and evolve after a war.

"... 'cause baby, it's you..."

News flash:

It seems that I like taking care of people.

Just call me Florence NightenSally.

It's amazing that when you care about someone, you don't mind cleaning out his cuts and scrapes because you don't think his blood and guts are nasty. You're too worried about him being in pain from getting all banged up.

You stop caring about looking perfect.

You don't mind when your hair gets messed up because he is playing with it.

You stop worrying about having lipstick on because you know he's going to kiss it off anyway.

I just had to let this out.

Now, back to snarky, political musings. Maybe... :-)

"...come to me now and lay your hands over me..."

I get seperation anxiety for the people I care about.

I'm not talking about seperation anxiety when they go on long trips or anything like that.

I mean on a daily basis. An hourly basis even.

...Poox2000 is moving to DC. I cannot even verbalize the depth my seperation anxiety will reach when he's no longer a 5 minute drive away from me.
