I haven’t had a chance to see what’s going on in the news, so I hope y’all are paying attention for me. I forgot what it was like to have to get up and go to work every morning. Kinda sucks. Have a good day, y’all.

Well, here I am in DC. I’m not so good at sleeping in strange places, and I’m not real big on starting new things and meeting new people, so right now I’m pretty beat, and caught between wanting to get this day started already, and jumping back under the covers (or better yet, packing up my shit and heading back to Syracuse). Not much chance of posting anything during the day, I don’t think, but, for anyone who cares, I’ll let y’all known how things went when I get back tonight.

Well, the day I haven’t exactly been looking forward to has finally arrived. I’ll be heading out in about five hours (shooting for an ETD of 10:00 AM), with an estimated time of arrival at about 5:00 this evening (give or take a couple hours for getting lost and whatnot). If all goes well, I’ll be moved into my room and on the Internet before dark. I sure hope the A/C is working – supposed to be 90 in DC today; have I mentioned how much I hate hot weather?

Let’s see, I didn’t have much time to check the talking heads shows out this week, but here’s a quick rundown. On Press the Meat, Timmy Potatohead has a pair of Republicans – Chuck Hagel & James “batshit crazy” Sensenbrenner – on to talk about… Jeezus H. Christ, immigration still? Aren’t we over this yet? Then, it’s a pair pf rightwing hacks from the WaPost – asshole David Broder, and douchebag David Ignatius, certifiably batshit crazy Kate O’Beirne, and yet another representative form the WaPost, Eugene Robinson.

Saturday Open Thread

Ah, Memorial Day weekend is upon us. For those who enjoy watching things go around in a circle, there’s the Indianapolis 500, of course, but the real event of the weekend is the (hopefully) total domination of Central New York in the world of Lacrosse. Not that most (all) of you really give a crap, but Onondaga Community College (one of my alma maters – or at least a place where I picked up a few credits) already won the JUCO National Championship by crushing Suffolk 30 – 6. Tomorrow, Syracuse returns to the final four after a one year absence (it was the first time in 22 years they weren’t in it). Unfortunately, they have to play undefeated and undisputed #1 Virginia, but after a tough start, SU has won nine straight, so here’s hoping they can make it to the national championship game on Monday. On Sunday afternoon, Cortland (a name Twilight Zone fans will no doubt recognize) takes on Salisbury for the Division III championship, after which LeMoyne takes on Dowling (whoever that is) for the Division II championship, and hopefully on Memorial Day, Syracuse can bring home national championship #10 while I’m somewhere in between Syracuse and DC. I wonder if I’ll be able to get that on the radio? Well, I guess I’d better get to packing, and take the dog for our second to last walk. Enjoy your Saturday.

Well, another weekend is almost upon us. And it’s my last weekend of being a bum and not having to get up and go to work every morning – at least for a couple of months. I guess today I’ll try and go out and get some decent clothes, so I don’t look like too much of a bum when I start on Tuesday morning. Siggy did a little too much running around yesterday, so hopefully he won’t mind (too much) if we take a day off today. Have a good Firday.

This week is winding down a lot faster than I’d like. I’ve been kinda busy, and not able to keep up on things, though I did see that Tom DeLay apparently thinks Stephen Colbert is for real (then again, he probably thinks Bill O’Reilly is for real, too), and I guess CNN has discovered the cure for being gay. Or something. As Olivia over at the Huff Post commented: “I would be more interested in a cure for pedophelia, incest, and that right wing obsession with everybody else’s sex life.” Or as MoeLarryandJesus commented, “Yet more Stupid Christian Tricks. Will you fucking idiots get over it already? Sheesh, don’t you morons realize Jesus was gay? After all, he asked 12 men to eat him. I’ll bet there was a big fight over the ‘wishbone.'”

Nice day yesterday (well, the weather’s kind of clold and sucky, but not everwhere in the world can be as warm as Anchorage), and it’s supposed to warm up a little today, which is should be nice. Mostly, I’ll be spending the day continuing to try and get my shit together, and maybe hoping for a Rove indictment when the Grand Jury meets later on.

Got a lot to do over the next few days – buy some clothes, do some laundry, buy a little coffee maker and a “dorm” refrigerator. I ordered a little USB TV tuner/mpeg-2 encoder so I can watch TV on my laptop, and I set up a VPN so I can connect to my home network from the Internet (which will allow me to access all my files, get the e-mail off the mail server I run, and – I hope – download the season finale of the Sporanos on June 4th from my ReplayTV, though it’ll take a while with my asynchronous cable connection; I wish I’d gone for the FiOS, with 2 Mbps upstream).

I watched Baghdad ER last night on HBO. If you hadn’t heard about it, it’s a documentary about the 86th Combat Support Hospital in Iraq. It wasn’t an easy thing to watch. I have a lot of respect and admiration for everybody involved. Other than that, I can’t think of much to say, to be honest, except to wish Mr. FK a safe trip back to the sandbox, and a safe stay while he’s there. We’ll keep an eye on Blogging Baghdad, and hope to hear his reports on the Marc Show. Godspeed Mike.
