Now she walks through her sunken dream to the seat with the clearest view
And she's hooked to the silver screen,
but the film is a saddening bore for she's lived it ten times or more
She could spit in the eyes of fools as they ask her to focus on
Sailors fighting in the dance hall, oh man!
Look at those cavemen go, it's the freakiest show
Take a look at the Lawman beating up the wrong guy
Oh man! Wonder if he'll ever know he's in the best selling show
Is there life on Mars?

Speedy Update

Quick thoughts and updates:

I have my approval for MRI, will be scheduling that tomorrow. Appointment with Orthopedic Doctor on Monday. Trying Aleve on advice from coworker. So far, hmmm, might work. We'll see how we sleep on it.

The election in MA isn't quite what many people are making it out to be. Especially the talking heads (on both sides). The exit polls and other survey data show a much more complex picture. edited to correct that no exit polls occurred in the MA special election (nod to Cassie for pointing that out)

The day job continues to provide such fun enough that I'm using antacids more (although that could also be with amounts of painkillers I'm taking).

Robert Parker died yesterday. I came late to his works (reading and listening to them for the WIP). Muscular prose and directness. From what is being told he died doing what he loved, at his writing desk.

Also yesterday was E.A. Poe's birthday. I guess the mysterious mourner didn't show.

I hope the Aleve helps and that things start looking up.

Don't take Aleve on an empty stomach or you'll have an ulcer on top of whatever is wrong with your shoulder.

What exit polls? My understanding was that there were none taken.

Elizabeth, it's helping. The MRI is scheduled for tomorrow. With the aleve and only two tylenol I got 4.5 hours of uninterrupted sleep last night (the longest stretch since New Years).

Cassie, here's a TPM story about what they're calling a "survey." Disclaimer, Research 2000 is like a liberal version of Rassmussen, but their survey results (those published in the article) are only about Democrats who voted and didn't vote. Here's a Washington Post article on some of the complexities (also disclaimer, WaPo is also considered a "liberal" newspaper).

But you're right, it wasn't an "exit poll." Updating the post now.
