- Amongst all the talk about the election I don't know if people are getting the bigger picture. In only a few weeks we will either elect the first African-American President or the first Female President or Vice-President. Some people might like to say that it is a long time coming (which it is), but I would rather focus on the fact that this is progress for America. You can't change the past, but the future looks a little bit brighter.
- M and I finished Season 1 of Mad Men. It is a good show, but not one I would necessarily recommend to everyone. The setting of the show is a 1960s ad agency in New York City. It seems like an accurate representation of the 60s. (Obviously, I don't know since I wasn't alive during that time.) Watching the show made me even more happy when I would think about the above point in regards to politics.
- People use the term "we" way too frequently. If you did not do something then you shouldn't use "we" when describing things. Personally I have tried to stop using "we" when describing my favorite teams. The only time I might get caught using it is when talking about the mighty Redhawks of Miami University, which I find more understanding since I am a Miami University alum.
- My latest food kick has been twice-baked potatoes. I have made 3 batches so far, and am working on perfecting my recipe.
Off to a BBQ. Hopefully my twice-baked potatoes will be a hit.
