Has it ever been 'one of those days'?


You know it's time to give up when you get messages like this:
Quote:
File size limit exceeded 0%
I'm tired, frustrated and confused.
The glowing green phosphor letters burning for eternity (well, until I switch off... ), mocking me, taunting me...
Why?

/* Screams and runs away... */


It really has been one of those days...

So, my question to you is:
'Have you ever had one of those days where you think you should just have stayed at home in bed?'

Today seems to be going alright. *knocks on wood.*
Oops, spoke too soon. The windows box has dropped of the network, again.
This is going to be a long day...

When I was a kid my mother used to tell me "If you didn't have bad luck, you wouldn't have any luck at all". Back then I would just laugh it off. I'm 38 now; not laughing anymore.

Don't you find it a little odd that the presidential campaigns have started a year earlier then they normally do?

Also from what I have seen of the candidates in the running...I don't believe that anyone of them has the ability or the will to undo the damage that the Bush Administration has done to the United States.

Lets not talk politics. Bush isn't a bad President, he has made mistakes, but nothing any other human may make. We can't expect our leadership to be superhuman and more pure than anyone else.

They always start this way, it's candidates preparing for the nomination of their party, etc. Next year after the candidates chosen from each party will start the real debates. Everything is scheduled as normal.

That's gonna take years, decades, a millenium even..

And phantom_cyph, you're right, Bush isn't a bad president, he's the worst president. I don't think I'd count his mistakes as human mistakes. And no one expects anyone to be pure but when a lot of people are dying, you can only point the finger at one person.

But then again, like phantom_cyph mentioned, this discussion is suitable on a different site and forum, another time and place, not here. So let's keep on the original topic or I'll even close this thread myself by forcing acid_kewpie with a spoon..

Anyone want to discuss politics, email me, I'll speak my mind on the subject..
