So... Governor-Elect Schwarzenegger

Quite surreal. If nothing else, it made my 21st b-day a memorable one.

I voted for him, even though ideologically I'm closer to McClintock. But I was worried that a vote for McClintock would wind up being equivalent to a vote for Bustamante. As it turned out, with a 16 point different between Arnold and Cruz, it wouldn't have mattered.

So I was somewhat ambivalent about it. I still am, which is unlike me. I don't assume that he's going to be the greatest Governor that the state has ever known. I also don't assume that he's going to suck, because it seems he's surrounding himself by a lot of very smart people. It's too early to decide either way. I hope he sticks with his campaign platform of repealing the 300% car tax hike, and junking the measure to give DL's to illegals. I hope the dems work with him on that and bringing business back to California.

And some of the headlines, especially those from overseas, are just funny.

Futurama! Squee!

I'm watching A Flight to Remember on Cartoon Network. This is the episode that hooked me on the show. Fry and Leela... Amy and Kif... Bender and Contessa... How I love it so!

Brannigan: "But as a gentleman, I must warn you. If you so much as glance at another woman, I'll be all over Leela like a fly on a pile of very seductive manure." (MP3 sound files)
