Strange Days

2009 was a very strange year. It started on a positive note with Barack Obama's election to President of the United States, and his inauguration, which I attempted to live-blog.

Then things got weird for me personally when I started getting cyber-stalked and threatened by some angry right wing fringe lunatics who said they wanted to "hold me accountable" for my "liberal opinions". I was mostly getting it from a few people from message boards I used to frequent, but things got especially ugly after I filmed some right wingers at a "tea party" here in my home town dancing and chanting "nothing better than a dead liberal". That really got the attention of more right wing radicals. I started getting messages on youtube from people in the "tea party" movement, including someone named "july4patriot".
Those are some real winners, aren't they?

Despite all that craziness, 2009 was one of the best years of my life. My child was born in April and it changed my life. I had always been told that it would be the greatest thing to ever happen to me and now I think it was undersold.

I have been neglecting this blog because I have not had a lot of time but one of my 2010 resolutions is to try and post here more often.
