Do you ever sleep?
I'm not sure how familiar you are with my personal case of post-coup stress disorder, and its many manifestations, but I don't sleep much anymore (I haven't been to bed yet tonight), and I've lost about 40 pounds since election day.
I am a lean-mean-insomniac-fighting-machine for justice and democracy!
By the way, today's front page feature (which should go live within the hour), is a keeper! And there's lots of other good stuff, too!
Tammy, I feel bad it has had that effect on you. It hit us all differently. I ended up alienating some friends and co-workers, and no one seemed (seems) to understand why it hit me so hard. I get mostly puzzled looks and remarks about "getting over it", like it's a switch I can turn off. But lately I'm finding a community of people online who feel like I do and are wanting to do something about it, so that helps the healing. Getting to know people like you helps, too.
Thanks for all your help,
Don't feel bad. Though I am cranky in the extreme about all of this, I have never felt more alive in my life, or been more creatively engaged. Plus, I needed to lose the weight. You know what they say in California:
"You can never be too thin... or too thin."
Something that might help you feel less alone (it certainly did me), would be to read some of the personal stories of other folks' coup2k experiences. I call those folks "The Jaded" (of which I am one, of course), and you can access a list of links to their stories on my site at: http://www.coup2k.com/faq.html. One of the lighter ones, which might actually make you laugh (it did me), is Aprille's: http://www.coup2k.com/riotisrhyme.html
Anyway, don't worry about me. I have Chuck (My Consort and light-of-love) who takes good care of me, and makes sure I laugh at least ten times a day... :)

Dear Ultra-Liberal Diva
I found your site stupid and full of wrong information. For example you write:
I actually think that treating sex as taboo (forbidden fruit) makes it more tempting and exciting, and a lot more fun. Sort of the same reason that people like to have sex in strange places where they can get caught.
No, that is not why people like to have sex in strange places, but it is why they like to have sex when the pizza delivery guy is walking up the stairs.
And I also read the story about birth control where Joyce Cusack says:
"Is this the best bang for the buck? I don't think so," said Democratic Rep. Joyce Cusack of DeLand, who has worked as a public health nurse.
The best bang for the buck? What was she thinking about? Who chose that cliché? I wouldn't touch it with a 10-inch pole. But it is nice to know our representatives are trying to make something better. Hey, how about girl-girl bipartisanship?
Furthermore what about this:
Have you ever gotten a pet, say, a little kitten, and named it "Dinky", only to have it grow up to be a 25-pound beach ball with legs?
No, the name is either Baby Kitty or Schpitz, and why is there no link? Don't tell me you don't have a picture of Schpitz the CoupCat. What, not enough memory for a full picture?
So, in closing, why don't you go back to Russia, you commie?
Your best bang for the buck,-------------
