Morning Seditionists

Monday

It was a chilly weekend, but a nice one. And things are supposed to warm up this week, which will be good. Unfortunately, it’s Monday, and that sucks. It’s a short week though, ‘cuz I took Friday off so I could take Fritz in for his rabies vaccination. I’m not really looking forward to it. He’s pretty good, but I don’t like to see him get stuck with needles and whatnot. I’m sure they’ll want to do the Lyme/Heartworm test. That’s worse than a shot (which dogs don’t really seem to feel when it’s just under the skin – which is good, considering how they bit the crap out of each other when they play), because they need to get blood. Siggy did not like that needle in his leg one bit, but Fritz was OK with it last time. Oh, well, I guess I’ll just have to worry about it after I get the next four days over with.

As you probably heard, President Obama has been squandering tax dollars by traveling to college campuses and giving speeches to enthusiastic young folks (much to the chagrin of Jon Boehner, who says this is just plain terrible – and certainly unprecedented).  BTW, that link is to the Christian Science Monitor. I’ve always wondered, is that something that monitors Christian Science? Or a science monitor that happens to be Christian? Either way, there would seem to be an contradiction in terms, there. Anyhow, not to be outdone, Mitt Romney did his college tour this week as well, rousing the kids with tales of such exciting things as, um, well, office supplies.

A rather annoying, sleepless night last night. That seems to have become the norm for me these days. And my days are spent sitting in a chair that’s trying to kill me. By the end of Monday, my back is a little sore. Tuesday, it starts hurting pretty bad around lunchtime. Wednesday, I’m in pain from about the first half hour on. So things are aching pretty bad right now, and tomorrow will be a real killer. Kinda sucks.

So I talked with my mom in Anchorage, and she says that someone broke into her apartment and took her computer charger again. That’s right, again. Now, if you steal from a woman who is over ten grand in debt, has a car from the 80s, and can barely hold a steady job because of her health, I’d want to kill you if you did it a third time.

Tuesday! Oh shit, you know what that means. It’s time for everyone’s favorite show The Deadliest Catch. Now, I wasn’t always a fan of this show, but I really needed an excuse to excessively drink on a Tuesday night. Albeit alone, but another reason to be drunk as a skunk none-the-less.

Well, we didn’t get the heavy rain they said we would last night. Instead, we got a few inches of snow. It was a regular winter wonderland out at my house – and just a bit of a hassle getting out of the driveway, now that the snow tires are off. No snow in Syracuse, though. Just rain and wet and cold. Supposed to be like that all week, I guess. Good thing I managed to get the grass cut yesterday. But it was pretty cold out there on the tractor. It was OK for a while, but it takes me about an hour and a half, and by the time I was done, I was chilled to the bone. I even had to light the pellet stoves, and I thought I was done with that. I’m starting to think the year without a winter is about to be followed by a year without a summer. Of course, it’s only April. Worse, it’s only Monday. There’s a long way to go yet.

Urf Day

Happy Earth Day, planet Earth. Back on the very first Earth Day, I was about nine and a half years old. That was a long damn time ago. Fortunately, during the ensuing 42 years (42 years! Holy shit, when did that happen?) we’ve stopped polluting the air and the water and the land, have made huge strides in getting off of oil (why, we Americans use a mere 19 million barrels a day) and coal with alternative energy, and are taking Climate Change seriously.

Damn near noon on 4/20, and I’m not stoned. And not likely to be. How sad. But life goes on, so I reckon I’ll have to find some other way to celebrate Hitler’s birthday. At least it’s Friday, and a very nice one, weather-wise, from what I hear. In a shocking surprise, the weather is supposed to turn to crap for the weekend. I guess that gives me an excuse to sit around and read all day. Except I’d prefer to sit out in the sun and read. But you take what you get.

I had to laugh when I saw the headline of this article – “Right and Early” – because it naturally made me think of Marc the Shark (or was it Mark the Shark – or Marc the Sharc?). It’s all about the liberal media bias – particularly on the Sunday Booblehead shows.

Stupid Meeting Day

I began my commute this morning listening to Johnny Cash’s version of “I Hung My Head.” A cheery little ditty to help get me in the mood for today’s meeting (for which I am holding out hope that there’ll be a last minute cancellation). Not that I wasn’t in the mood already. I was awakened at about 2:30 this morning, and never actually got back to sleep, so let’s just say I’m tired and a little bit grumpy. Not as grumpy as everybody’s favorite Sheriff, Joe Arpaio, I bet.
