Everyone I talk to has nothing but doom and gloom on their minds. It’s a real downer. I can’t help but agree that things look grim and will get worse, perhaps much worse, before they get better. Things are not exactly roses and cut crystal around here; not by a long shot. I try to muddle through, though, and keep a calm and positive attitude.
It’s amazing how quickly things change; the dot-com bubble peaked in 2000. How rosy things looked at that time; my estimates then saw me retiring two years from now; ha! Ha!
Chickens, count, hatch.
I’m honestly hopeful for the future. I hope this new guy can pull a rabbit out of his hat.

That’s a LiveJournal post from June 27th, 2005, regarding me taking interest in Barack Obama. Funny that I had forgotten this quote (and my post) in the intervening two or three years before he threw his hat in the ring… Maybe I *am* allergic to the ‘D’ (though I did vote for Clinton the first time).
Anyway, off to go soak my head. My apologies for my negativity.
