Day Dream Believer

I am, like loads of people, spending much of my day thinking about Barack Obama. I mean really, it takes a lot of talent and cajones to rise to the top of the political heap in four years. And then I got to thinking… talent is one thing, but to achieve your dreams you need something else: passion, commitment, intelligence and a nice rack doesn’t hurt either. But that’s just me.

Seriously, just thinking about President-elect Obama encourages me to ask myself the important questions of “Who am I?” and “Why the hell am I eating so much ice cream lately?”

So I am announcing right now, that as of today, I am going to tap into my inner Obama, a man that has inspired millions both at home and abroad, and try and be my very, very best. I am going to fight hard to achieve my dreams (even if the dream is just a one nightstand with George Clooney). I am not going to waste any more time on meaningless pursuits (except I may still blog) because, damn it people, I have work to do.

And there is a two-fold bonus in all of this. I will get to tell my children how in some small way, I, like millions of others not only help shift the public debate, re-energized politics, and made what seemed to be impossible, possible by electing a President that knows the U.S. Consitution. I can tell my kids that it was also the day inspired Mommy to get serious and finally put that call in to Clooney’s people.

And the rest, as they say, is history.

hhmm.. You are so right. I was thinking about this very thing this morning how one can say, "Oh, I aspire to this, that and the other thing", but unless you do something about it , aspirations are simply that.

So tell me dear, what is it you want to do?

So ya'll saw through the Clooney thing...

What do I really want to do? I want to be either an aging golf pro or a Bond girl.

And JB...I hear you about the ovaries and I love tall.
See you over at

Ok, do you play golf? Because that is a consideration. I only know one aging pro and he is a full-fledged drunk. (not an alcoholic, they don't drink and they go to meetings). So, if that is your plan, save all the golf money and just drink!

Easy day!

But you are right, he has inspired millions and, hopefully, many will channel their inner Obama and make changes.

Aim high, my friend, aim high. Go for The Clooney -- he's hot, and what does "gay" mean these days, anyway? Go for it! I'm with you on "daring to be" -- the time is now! And Obama is proof that the "impossible" can happen. Right now. Now excuse me, I have Everest to climb.
