Mud

Posted on Thursday, October 19th, 2006

Dave!My day started with a trip to the dentist for my 6-month cleaning, and only went downhill from there. By the time I finished work at 8:00pm, I was so sick and tired of life that I was seriously contemplating taking a handful of sleeping pills and crawling into bed. But that seemed kind of stupid... how much worse could the day get at 8:00pm? Because, hey, Ugly Betty, My Name is Earl, The Office, Grey's Anatomy, and CSI are on tonight!

So I plop myself down in front of the television in anticipation of good TV.

Instead I am inundated with stupid-ass political advertising for an hour. I'm guessing it's the same everywhere but, here in Washington State, it's particularly nasty because of the senatorial race. Heaven only knows I'm not a big fan of incumbent Maria Cantwell... but Mike McGavick and his never-ending attack ads is no better. Politicians don't inspire anymore. They just sling mud. They're not interested in solving problems. They're only interested in getting elected.

It just makes me want to bitch-slap them both.

But what's the point? They're doing far worse to each other...

Cantwellmcgavick

Who wins in these things? No matter which one gets the office, I'm mortally embarrassed to have them as our senator.

I'm too depressed to blog anymore, so I'm stealing a meme from Kentucky Girl which you can find in an extended entry after this really cute picture of me as a tyke...

The REAL Lil' Dave
My hairstyle hasn't changed in decades... there's just less of it!

  • HOW MANY PEOPLE DO YOU LIKE RIGHT NOW? Sixty-three.
  • WHAT’S THE MOST ANNOYING TV COMMERCIAL? Any of the Subway sandwich commercials with Jared the Subway sandwich whore, though the political ads I mentioned are annoying the f#@% out of me right now.
  • DO YOU SHOP AT AMERICAN EAGLE? We don't have one where I live.
  • FAVORITE SONG AT THE MOMENT? My favorite song is Mercy in You by Depeche Mode and has been for nearly thirteen years.

And there you have it. Meh. I'm not even going to watch the rest of Grey's Anatomy... I'll wait until it's all safely recorded on my TiVo so I can skip past the political ads that are driving me insane.

The stupid election can't get here fast enough.

    Ooo, wonderful photoshop Halloween-esque work on the photos! 🙂

  2. Dave2 says:

    That photo of me is totally untouched… I was naturally adorable!

  3. Mooselet says:

    Hee!! Love your slippers! And also, politicians blow big twinkies. They’d sell their mother to get elected.

  4. kusems says:

    Your hair hasn’t changed a bit!

  5. Dave2 says:

    Kusems… Sad, isn’t it? Though some might say it adds to my boyish charm. 🙂

    Mooselet… I still wear tiger slippers and walk around in my underwear, so that much hasn’t changed either.

  6. adena says:

    Awwww….lookitChoo!

    63 people, eh? I find it disconcerting that you keep track. Do you have a shrine in the corner for people you don’t wish to kill?

  7. Kapha says:

    Speaking of Twinkies…

    Was that the first-ever Twinkie Hangover captured on film? 😀

    P.S. Someday perhaps we’ll see States[wo]men again instead of Politicians, but I’m not holding my breath. Embarrassed is the only word to describe them, and unfortunately has been all too common for years and years and years at all levels. 😛

  8. serap says:

    I just thought I’d answer the ‘what was the last thing you ate?’ question from your meme… it was an egg mayo and roasted tomato breakfast baguette from Pret! I had one this morning on my way to work, just for you! Ok, really it was for me, but it was really nice, so thanks for introducing me to them. Is that a special tiny chair for you in that photo? It looks too small for adults… unless you were an adorable but massive toddler?

  9. nancycle says:

    I could have done without seeing blood this early in the morning. Gad zooks!

    You’re lucky you were a cute baby, I looked like an angry Eskimo.

    Not related to Elvis by any chance are you?

    I see our parents used the same home decorator…

    I’m stealing your silly questions! 🙂

  10. RW says:

    I just get to the point where I figure “they’re both right” and walk away. As has been said, if you vote you just end up encouraging them.

    I had Davy Crockett slippers, but then I’m about 90 years old too.

  11. Avitable says:

    Dots and milk? Together?

  12. Laurence says:

    When you was a baby (little boy), you was so cute, adorable, “mignon”, “trop mignon” etc. And the tiger bootee… wow… 😀
    In France, when a baby is so cute, we said : “il est beau comme le jour” (beautiful like the day… I think you say “like a Greek god”)

    I don’t say you are not beautiful today… I must say that you’re good-looking today… especially your gravatar !!!

    What a minute ! I make me wonder what I want to say… I stray from the subjet…

    Are you sure that you never try the moonwalk ? You should it’s very funny… Halloween is soon and dressed up like M. Jackson dancing the moonwalk… That’s would be create a stir !!! 😀

  13. amanda says:

    3 licks to get to the center of a Tootsie Pop? Do you have a prehensile lizard-tongue or something? 🙂

  14. “So I plop myself down in front of the television in anticipation of good TV.”

    What a silly idea. Pink urinal cakes make more sense than that statement.

  15. Jeff says:

    DO YOU HAVE A NICKNAME? Duke (it’s a long story)

    Sounds like a future post to me. I’ll wait here.

  16. ms. sizzle says:

    you totally ARE natually adorable. love that pic and am stealing the meme. 🙂

  17. Miss Britt says:

    I think I’m stealing this from you and everyone else for a weekend post.

    Because I’m freaking original like that, OK?

  18. rae says:

    y’know what? there’s this old thing says babies born cute will grow up looking ugly, i guess you’re an exception!

  19. diane says:

    Dude, Dave how can you possibly be sad when you have all these cyber-chicks falling at your feet, telling you how adorable you are? 🙂
    I too got a kick out of the fact you like 63 people right now. I don’t think I can honestly say I give that many people the benefit of the doubt…
    And finally Dots = Awesome, Donnie Darko = Awsome x2, Crunchy Peanut Butter = Awesome x3!

  20. Dave2 says:

    Adena… Actually, I just went through my blogroll and counted up the bloggers I read who I actually like. If it makes you feel special, you are on the list! 😀

    Kapha… It actually disgusts me that these f#@%ing idiots can’t simply campaign on the issues but instead have to attack each other over and over and over again. Just tell me what you stand for and I’ll vote accordingly! As it is now, they both stand for mud-slinging, and it’s pathetic. I hate these f#@%ers.

    Serap… GAH!!! I AM TOTALLY JEALOUS NOW!! I really need to fly to the UK ASAP. 🙁 I don’t know about the chair… I think it was just a kid-size thing that was bought for me.

    Nancycle… The 60’s were a very cool era for home decorating! I think everybody’s house looked like that. 🙂

    RW… I had a Davy Crockett faux coonskin cap! I don’t consider them both right, I consider them both WRONG. Disgusting, really.

    Avitable… Milk does a body good… I’ll drink it with anything! Though, if you believe PETA, milk is very, very bad.

    Laurence… Tiger slippers totally made my outfit there! Otherwise, I’m just a guy in his underwear. If I were to attempt to moonwalk, I’d fall on my face! I am not a talented dancer.

    Amanda… I buy Tootsie Pops by the case, and usually end up biting them open after a couple licks. I am very impatient. 🙂

    Part-Time Buddha… As a television whore, I like several shows! Veronica Mars is about as good as it gets.

    Jeff… You’ll probably be waiting for a long, long time then. It involves a trip to Hawaii with my friends, and I don’t blog about my friends and family. 🙁

    Ms. Sizzle… I agree I am totally adorable… as a kid. I don’t know what happened to change that once I had grown up!

    Miss Britt… Okay!! I will be sure to cruise by your blog and read your answers.

    Rae… No, it’s totally true. I’m pretty heinous in person!

    Diane… I am much beloved, that’s for sure! But I still think it’s sad that animals have to be hunted down and killed. We’ve got candy bars and stuff to eat… no need to blow away Bambi! Which reminds me… I need to see Donnie Darko again!

  21. Duke! hey, let’s make him Duke! The kickass Duke!

    you don’t happen to listen to Tenacious D; do ya? That is hysterical…

  22. claire says:

    Political ads are driving me crazy these days too. Even more so because the channels that get better reception here are from an adjacent state.

  23. Jenny says:

    OMG – that baby photo is just too much! You totally look like a ‘lil rockstar with that hair and the scowl!

  24. Dave2 says:

    Dawn… I have indeed listened to Tenacious D, but will probably wait for the new movie on DVD instead of seeing it at the theater. 🙂

    Claire… Oooh. So you have double suffering! Forced to watch political ads that are for candidates you can’t even not vote for!

    Jenny… Yep! Rockstar just about sums up my life! HA!

  25. Loving the hair! Many an anime fan would kill for hair like that.

    I also freaked about the political stuff. They preempted Earl and The Office for that crap and did not tell me when they were actually going to run them. I ended up finding NBC’s number in NY, called, and left a stern message. That’s about the extent of my political activism. ::hangs head in shame::

  26. delmer says:

    Your expression in that photo has Cauliflower fart written all over it.

    The political campaigning here is horrible as well. I have no idea what any of the candidates might do for me in the future — but I am well aware of every evil they’ve performed in the past.

  27. kapgar says:

    Our gubernatorial races is full of just that here in Illinois… goobers. Blagojevich and Topinka are both intent on nothing more than shit slinging and I don’t want either of them in office. I wish there was a way to denote on a ballot that I am voting one way or the other simply because they are the lesser of both evils. Sadly, I’m not even sure which is “the lesser.”

  28. Epona says:

    My mom mentioned just today that she can’t wait for the election to be over so the ads can stop. I have to agree, but for the first time today I saw a rather humorous ad of a bunch of people talking to a bush and asking about issues. At the end the voice over said you can’t expect answers from either the bush or the President. The best part was that it wasn’t endorsing any particular person. It just asked for people to make a change by voting.

    And, as a first time voter, I want to do that. I just wish the choices weren’t so crappy… :’ (
