I know you will all be as relieved for me as I am when I tell you that today the construction workers finally began laying the asphalt on my street! Oh, sweet mother of god. No more "BEEP--BEEP--BEEP" combined with grinding, crunching, and thumping on a massive scale. No more 3-inch layer of dust on my shoes (nor the rainy-day mud version of the same). No more of same dust filthifying every single item in my apartment and making my asthma worse. YIPPEE!
Of course, once the steady stream of subwoofers begins traveling past my window again, I'm sure I will once again crave some kind of long-distance tech weaponry. (If I could destroy only their speakers, I wouldn't feel guilty!)
The Feminist Majority have some cool items on their eBay fundraiser site; proceeds go to getting women to vote. And since women tend to vote less Elephant and more Donkey...you get my drift. (I can't believe that Wanda Sykes T-shirt is still so cheap! Of course, I think this is still the first day.)
