I got my early morning wish granted, and ended up sleeping from around 4am to 4pm today. So I guess when I said that today would be a “do nothing” day, I wasn’t kiddin’ around. 😳 It makes sense though, considering that I did a little more this week than I normally do, and then did the social thing yesterday to top it off. Body has a tendency to just shut down and go into recovery mode after stuff like that. 😟🤷🏻♂️ And I do feel relatively rejuvenated (at least for now), so that’s awesome, although when I’m “rejuvenated” it’s about the same as topping off the charge on a 3 year old NiCad battery, where you’re really only getting about 75% of the charge that the battery advertises. 😏 I’m not complaining though.
It’s weird waking up just a couple hours before it gets dark, but with that, along with it being the weekend now, once it gets dark like this and “the day is over” for most folks – that’s when it feels more like my time. Still planning to get started on my bills here shortly, and then after that I’m probably just gonna take it easy through this weekend, picking up little chores here and there as I feel like it. 🙂 Weather’s supposed to be awesome tomorrow, so I could see myself opening up the house to let the stink blow away as I do some cleaning… if I’m still feeling decent.
It’s been a stressful week for anyone with even a passing interest in the election, and even though I’ve been checking in with Twitter now and then, I think all of us deserve to take the weekend to just chill out about all of this crap and let the processes happen. 🤓👍🏻 Donald Trump seems determined to file as many lawsuits as it takes to win, so that’ll be a growing list of agencies, counties, and states dealing with all that. 😒 And then the presumptive recounts… honestly, I say bring ’em on, and as soon as possible.
If any votes were counted when they truly shouldn’t have been, then yes, let’s get them out of the totals. And I also believe that there should be an accurate count, like nearly everyone, so I don’t have any issues with any recounts that end up being done. It’s a shame that, even though he disputes the results, Trump can’t do that in a way where he retains a bit of dignity – and where he doesn’t get his followers all worked up with a bunch of claims that lack evidence or are just not based in fact. 🤡🎙️🔊 😫😡😣😤😠🤬 … 😞 He’d rather lose and make half of the country angry along with him, truly damaging society and its trust in our systems, rather than shutting the fuck up, filing his objections with the court, and confidently requesting recounts.
I’ve never seen someone in such a high position act like such a sore loser. All while trying to convince people that he believes he’s the legitimate winner. Lack of self-awareness in Trump and his supporters has them all full of sour grapes, looking like anything but people who are confident that they should win. 🙄 Thing is, those folks don’t care if he “acts like a president” or confronts this process with composure. Many are just used to getting their way regardless, so they’re having a really hard time now that they’re learning that some things can’t be lied through, and that sometimes facts (finally) do seem to matter.

Heh… see, I said yesterday that I wasn’t gonna garbage up my blog with this, but obviously it’s something I’ve been pretty passionate about over the past four years, so I had to throw at least a bit of it out here. 😁 I just don’t know when my particular take on things became the minority opinion. Maybe it’s not, and maybe that’s what this election is showing. But I don’t think it’s such a controversial take to say “Let either one of them take their objections to the court, so we can get any problems taken care of. And then if recounts will actually make a difference to either one of them, then sure… have the recounts.”
And like I said, even though none of them are acting like it… Trump could still win. 🤷🏻♂️
