I'm about >< this close to becoming a card-carrying pessimist. I want snow. It's supposed to snow. It never snows. I want the Seahawks to win. They ALMOST win...they never 'win'. Same for mariners or sonics. I'm extremely tired of being let-down. My mom. My wife. The Weather. 'My' Teams. I'm tired of hoping things will change, then realizing things never do. People will always let you down, despite one or two glimpses of hope throughout the year. No Seattle Team will succeed in 'dominating' any single sport for more than one year. The weather will always do what i LEAST want it do. Liberals and Democrats will ALWAYS find a way to convinced a soul-less, mindless public that 'speed kills' or 'it's about a woman's right to choose' or 'we need to re-distribute the money of the wealthy, to the have-nots'. I'd submit my application to the NorthWest Pessimists club, but I doubt they'd approve it. It seems too long since things 'went my way' for more than one or two things...ya know?
