No good shit to share this morning. Got a new remote control, which probably doesn’t sound too exciting, except you put in the make and model of all your devices, and it connects to the Internet and programs the thing, so all you have to do is touch ‘play dvd’ on the color touch screen, and it turns on all the correct devices (and turns off whatever’s on that you don’t need). You can even view photos on the thing. Pretty cool. Well, I think it’s pretty cool, but I’m sure there’s at least somebody that will be filled with contempt and disdain at the mere thought of such a thing. Fortunately, I can live with that.

I figured it was about time I wrote something really interesting and intelligent here. Unfortunately, I couldn’t think of anything, so I’ll tell you about the poo-poo my puppy left for me when I came home for lunch yesterday. I’ve seen a lot of crap in my time, but this was pretty amazing. Stellar, really, in terms of sheer volume for such a small (though quickly growing) dog. It had the consistency of wet mud, and had to have covered at least four square feet, at an average depth of approximately 3 1/2″ or so. That’s, what, almost 1.2 cubic feet of shit. I wound up using a snow shovel to clean it up. Good thing I didn’t put the shovels away for the season yet. That reminds me. I’d better go and get that shovel out of the shower. Thank goodness Granny will be home with him today.

Ah, the start of another week. We’re going to cool off here, which is fine by me. I hate the hot weather. Summer makes me long for fall. So does this movie, which I can’t wait to see.

Nice to wake up to the sound of birds singing in the morning again. Too bad they have to come with black fly season (soon to progress to deer fly season) and thunderstorm season (which scares the dog) and too damn hot season.

I tried not to pay attention to the returns last night, but of course it was impossible to ignore completely. Last I saw, it looked like it was jumping around from about 6% to 10% win for Clinton (less than a 10 delegate pick up). Much less than the 20% lead she had not long ago, and far less than the 65% or so of the vote she needed to make any sort of dent in Obama’s lead. Whatever it finally wound up being, I’m sure it’ll be spun as a great Clinton victory by the traditional media. Whatever. I mostly don’t care anymore. I’m just glad it’s finally over (six or seven or whatever it was weeks between primaries is way too long in today’s nauseating news cycles). Now it’s on to wherever the hell the next one is at, and to all the asinine questions and teevee ads that come along with it. Whoopie.

So, big day, what with the PA primary and all. I’d love to see this whole thing wrapped up today, but that won’t happen. Obama won’t win today, and however small a margin Clinton wins by (and to make any dent in either the popular vote or the delegate count, she needs to get something like 65% of the vote in the rest of the primary states), she won’t do the whole party unity thing and get behind the party’s nominee. That’s because she’s running for 2012 at this point, and the only way she can run for 2012 is if there’s a Republican in the White House for another four years.

It’s Monday again. That’s nice. As usual, I have nothing to say, except I’m having a harder and harder time going out and being amongst people these days. I just wanna win the lottery and become a hermit already.
