This is to what I refer.
Now, I like serious in my elected government as much as anyone, but Jesus Christ, this could make for a Hell of a good season of info-tainment, on bolth sides of the border!
Also, thanks to Gmail for bringing trhis to my attention, although I normally ignore their links.
So I went to a toga party, because it seems like that's the kinda thing you should do at least once in unviersity
It was fun though I learned why dancing in a toga can be a poor idea. I also had the thought to introduce myself as "Tiberius" though I forgot about that quickly. My housemate was, n.b. to Sam, "Septimus". Togas are a real bitch to construct though, took me a while to pierce it together.
I had a minor epiphany there actually. I've known for a while to disentangle people's political opinions from friendship, you can be friends with someone who doesn't have your opinions. In fact you probably should. But I hadn't taken that a step further to people who have political opinions that are anti-me. I've griped about some people seeing me as The Man trying to oppress democracy and such. And you know, no one likes being criticized. But I hung out with some of them at the party and they seemed pretty cool. So I'll disentangle their anti-Jacobism and try to approach them with friendship, not hostility.
