TGIF, indeed. This has been a long week, and Friday is at least a day late. I can’t wait to get this over with. Not only is this the last day of the week, it’s the last day of November. Damn, it’ll be 2008 before you know it.

Happy Belated Birthday Open Thread

It slipped my mind, but yesterday was the blog’s second birthday (that’s 14 in blog years). Seems like a lot longer ago to me. A lot of people have passed by here in the last two years. Over 300,000 visits. Some regulars, some lurkers, some who’ve come and gone (and even come back again).

I think the best thing about this whole HD thing has been Dan Rather Reports on HDNET. Aside from the rather stunning HD picture, it’s the kind of quality news reporting that you just don’t get on the regular teevee anywhere else. In addition to Dan Rathere, they also have two other excellent news shows – In Focus, and World Report. You have to hand it to Mark Cuban. He really seems to be putting money into this thing.

Well, that was just about the longest Monday on record. It was all I could do to keep my eyes open all day long. I have no idea what’s going on in the world, except I’m getting pretty tired of both Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton. And Cheney lives to see another day. I’m getting pretty tired of him, too. I’m getting pretty tired of just about everything, actually. Mostly, I’m just pretty tired.

Man, I really don’t feel like going back to work today. After four days off, this is shaping up to be one really long week. And now Elizabeth Kucinich is saying that Dennis would “definitely consider” Ron Paul as his running mate? Oy.

A pretty nauseating Press the Meat on store for us today, Timmy Potatohead hosts the odd couple of James “Cupie Doll” Carville and Mary Matalin, plus Bob Shrum and republican creep Mike Murphy.

I was thinking I needed to go and see who’s on the boobleheads today, and then I realized, hey, it’s not Sunday. It’s only Saturday. Cool.

Alright folks, time to get out there and stimulate the economy. I can’t, because I have to wait for the satellite guy to come. Sometime between eight and noon. Of course, if I’d happened to sleep in a little late (never happen; why is it when I have to get up and go to work, all I want to do is stay in bed, but when I can sleep in, I’m wide awake at the crack of dawn), he’d be here at 8 on the dot, but since I’m up and ready, he’ll be here two minutes to twelve. Oh well, beats going to work.

Thanksgiving Day Open Thread

I do my fair share of pissing and moaning about life, but, truthfully, I have a pretty good thing going here, and have plenty to be grateful for – today, and every day of the year. This year, I’m particularly happy that I have my doggy home, safe and sound. Wouldn’t have been the same without him this year. I’m happy I have a job (even though I don’t especially like it), unlike far too many people who are facing the holiday season wondering where they’re going to get the money to pay the rent and put food on the table – never mind being able to scrounge up enough to buy a present or two for their kids. I’m thankful for my wife, who inexplicably puts up with me, pain in the ass that I am (I think it has something to do with keeping the Internet going). And I’m really grateful that I live in a day and age when I can sit in bed surfing the Internet on a computer that’s something like 1,000 times faster (and 15 times lighter) than what they used to get to the moon and back, and be connected to people and places all over the world, whom I’d never have “met” otherwise – like you guys.

I really can’t wait to get this day over with. But I already don’t want to go back to work on Monday. Have a good one.
