How to Disappear Completely

As I sat down at my desk, got out my gigantic stack of coursebook orders, contemplated how much of a ghost-town the campus had become the day after Thanksgiving which led to me landing a precious parking spot right outside the store, ate my mini-wheats and drank my tea, set my Ipod in the little stereo-dealie here at work what song does the All-powerful Music Shuffle God choose as its first track?

let's just say the chorus of "I'm not here, I'm not here, I'm not heeee-eeee--rrrreeee" made me look around and wonder why anyone would be at work right now when there are so many Wal-marts to be despoiling.

We did it!

You know those stories you read as a child, not those creepy German fairy-tales where kids get parbroiled and eaten, but the American children's stories where everything works out and you get this warm fuzzy feeling and drift off to sleep confident that everyone important knows what they are doing and that everything will be alright?

Yeah, last night that kind of story happened in real life. And for one night, Chicago, the city I live in, was the center of the world.

I'm in. I voted. I'm a believer. I believe anything can happen these next 4 years. I'm energized like countless others my age and older and younger. I believe in you Barack. and I still want to help.

Now tell me what I need to do to keep this going.
