My life sucks?

Well, I just got some super disappointing news and I'm thinking about entering a why-me-spiral, starting with not getting accepted into a PhD program at the beginning of the year, pausing at my broken arm and wearing a cast all summer, taking a long look at the craphole that was August, when I was really sick, to September, when my grandpa died, and now October with the aforementioned disappointing news of the employment variety, which is basically that I will never get a decent job, and, oh, yeah, I need to start repaying those student loans.

Another option is to make fun of other people, because putting other people down is how I make myself feel good. Get it? So, let's see... Whoever writes Battlestar Galactica is a total idiot. Mike's been watching that show and I hate it. If I wanted to watch a bunch of insane, violent, hyper-masculine, hypocritical, militaristic assholes make a bunch of stupid decisions, shove their religion down my throat, and run a civilization into the ground, I'd turn on Fox news and watch my own government do it. Also, my cat peed right outside her box. What kind of moron would do that????

Huh. It didn't work.

I'd write you something uplifting about how much your friends love you (true), and how something else probably better will come along (also true), and how you're going to be okay - great even (totally true), but none of that will make you feel any better. I am so sorry you are having such a shitty year. I promise, it won't always be so crappy (right now this sentiment is probably also not helpful, because the end of the crapitude is not in tangible. Sorry!). Seriously, hang in there. It'll be fine. Can you tell I've been there? :)

Hmm. Does this help?

Tony Snow: "You know as a matter of common sense that the vice president of the United States is not going to be talking about water boarding. Never would, never does, never will. You think Dick Cheney's going to slip up on something like this? No, come on."

Naw, Cheney's too busy shooting guys in the face to fuck up. Riiight?

Some cheer-up links: I think they're funny:

How about the disappointment of sad-sack right wingers when a dorky show doesn't continue to fit their world view?

Mmmm, delicious Schadenfreude!
