Because we are in the final weeks of a grueling and vitally important campaign that will decide the next president of the United States---every news story becomes magnified. It's one major story after another---banks collapsing, Russia invading countries, Pakistan shooting at our troops, blah blah blah. It’s our job is to examine each issue that comes up and figure out who will handle it better---or in the case of these two candidates---who will handle it less crappy-er. The other thing that comes with the excitement of a presidential campaign, for us in the 'media', is stress. There is so much going on and everyone here at the Glenn Beck Program is doing their level best to make sure we get you every angle, every story and every Sarah Palin bikini photo we can get our hands on. All that adds up to America's 17th best rated election coverage---and we are now proud to say--- Guam's 9th best rated election team* (*with a conservative slant---28th if you include the rest). Working that hard leaves very little time for important things like eating. For example, because I haven't had much time to slow down and stop for anything, here is what I've eaten in the last 2 days:
- 3 Hershey's chocolate bars
- 1 large Whatchamacallit candy bar (those things are awesome)
- 2 Nutri-Grain bars
- 1 huge bag of Cheese Curls
- 2 packages of peanut butter crackers
- 1 chocolate crunchy ball of goodness
- 5+ lollipops
- 1 half gallon of Turkey Hill mint chocolate chip ice cream Several cans/bottles/44oz cups--of soda A few handfuls of macaroni and cheese crackers (new product)
I was reflecting on what this campaign has caused me to start eating and it made me refocus on my eating habits again. Thankfully, I'm scheduled to get home for dinner tonight and get back to some real, healthy food: Papa John's pepperoni pizza. If I'm lucky I'll be able to continue the healthy eating streak by stopping at McDonald's for a steak egg n cheese bagel in the morning.
And, if I’m really lucky--my inevitable heart attack won’t strike me until after the election, so at least I know who wins.
