On Congress, concerts and hair...

It's just a thought...but it occurred to me that maybe, just maybe, some members of Congress might be a little out of touch with what it's like to be, um, normal.

Okay, no jokes about me not being normal! Haha, I get that a lot. You KNOW what I mean.

By not passing the spending bill, my friend Lorie, who works for the Census, will not get her paycheck. She's like most of us - she lives week to week.

She can file for going to the government because she's laid off by the government. This is bureaucracy at its finest. 

And revoking the healthcare bill? Now? My insurance has already gone up due to the healthcare bill. Astronomically so. It's a done deal. Is Congress TRYING to make things worse for me?

Not to mention Dwayne, who has no insurance, is laid off from his job, is in a wheelchair, and has a pre-existing condition, thereby making it impossible for him to get insurance. He has been looking forward to the magic date of October 1 for months.

(sigh) One last thing... I guess CONGRESS is too busy to watch the National Zoo pandas every night like all us normal people. Just one more thing they've taken away from me...


In other news:

1. I got my Patty Griffin tickets. Oct.15, Brown Theater. I am a very happy girl.

2. I spontaneously decided to go with my mom yesterday to get my hair cut. For the first time in ten years, I stepped into a salon. They cut five inches off and layered it. I was devastated. 

3. No one else could even tell I'd gotten it cut. 

4. Dwayne said something like, 'Ten feet of hair with five inches cut off is still ten feet of hair.'

5. Dwayne is very wise.

That is all.
