Truth is, after the med fuck up last week, I had a massive amount of work to catch up on and then I had yet another conference to attend (this one local, thank GOD, so I was home at night) where I gave three presentations in a row, and then I had to come back and spend the day with Tori on Monday (she was off of school) and then and then and then…
Yeah. Basically, I spend a massive amount of time at my desk (with the cat helping, obviously) and not enough getting to write for me. It sucks, frankly, and at the event I did Saturday night my favorite, awesome writer friend Rachel Simon said to me, “You have to make the time. You have a book in you that needs to be written.” And all I can hear in my head is how can I write a book when I can’t even blog?
So how about those debates? Anyone else feel exhausted after they were over? I was mostly bummed because I really felt like Obama just wasn’t very, well, Obama-y. He’s an amazing debater, and it felt phoned in. Mitt was sharp and on point (even though he really played fast and loose with the truth, wowza – see where he lied on Factcheck.org’s tweet stream, and where Obama bent the truth a bit himself although not nearly so consistently).
I’m hoping the next one is better. And I still can’t shake the fucking political lethargy I have either. How about you? Did you watch? What did you think?
