I mean seriously, does fried chicken have any business being so fraught with stress? And this is sadly fairly typical of life around here.
On a similar note, I'm putting LiveJournal peeps on notice: I am probably going to do some friends-list culling soon, and one of the things I'm going to be using as my criteria is ratio of "politics" to "everything else." Right-wing politics, left-wing politics, domestic, international, doesn't matter. Frankly, I'm sick of hearing about it, and there are a few folks on my friends list who talk about precious little else these days. So if you're a politics hound and you find yourself dropped, don't take it personally. I just can't stomach it any more.
