  •  the bet went like this: (5+ / 0-)

    we would wait two weeks. if nothing special happened in two weeks time, then i lost.  but if something happened -whether it had to do with flushing out bin laden or not - then i won.

    then a few minutes later, i amended it to one week, i was so sure.  soooooo sure.

    the bet was five nights in a first class hotel in dublin - where i've never been.   : )

    or five nights in paris, if he won.

    i came home on sunday and a neighbor said obama was going to make a special announcement and i thought 'wow, that was quick!' but i was freaking out, because at that point i was thinking something like 'war'.  a compound in abbottabad wasn't even a glimmer in my mind.

    when obama walked up to that podium in the white house, my impression was that try as he might he was barely suppressing how damn proud he was of himself, with a very thin veneer of the sombre statesman-like behavior he felt appropriate to the occaision.  it was like it was a new personal best for him.  "damn, i'm good!"

    my friend who was flying that night, woke me with a call the next day saying in a fake brogue 'top of the morning to ye!'

    Before you diagnose yourself with depression or low self-esteem, first make sure that you are not, in fact, just surrounding yourself with a-holes - William Gibson.
