To go or not to go....

John Kerry will be in town later today, and I'm trying to decide whether to attend the rally. On one hand, it'll be next to the Metrodome so we could take the Banana instead of driving/parking. And judging from what minnehaha K said in her LJ, the tickets we got from a friend (not M'haha K) are slightly better than "print 'em out yourself from the web" tickets.

On the other hand, "admission" begins at 4:30 pm so I'd have to get up way lots earlier than usual. *yawn* Plus, I hate crowds.

On another hand, I've been very depressed/worried of late because of how awful it would be for the U.S. (and the rest of the world!) if Bush and his cronies managed to win or steal the election this time—maybe a good rally would be just the thing to cheer me up…

Drat!

So I didn't make it to the rally. jbru says it was pretty good too. *sigh*

Dutifully set the alarm for 3pm, woke up, had some cereal, conferred with Susan. She was feeling less than inspired; I decided I was feeling about the same. I think if we could have just been there we would have enjoyed it, but the whole process of getting there just seemed too daunting from where we sat just then. I went back to bed…

…and kept hitting the snooze alarm for about an hour after the alarm initially went off at 7pm. I don't know who dropped that piano but I sure know where it landed. I guess I needed the sleep. *yawn* I'm more-or-less awake now, which is a good thing since I'm at work. Unfortunately, there seems to be no work at work at the moment, so the struggle will be to stay awake and hope for something to show up.
