Morning Seditionists

Thursday

I’m sure all our hearts and prayers are with Ron Jeremy today, as he fights for his life with an aneurysm near his heart. I’ve never met the man, but as a porn projectionist back in the mid-eighties, I certainly became familiar with his work. Difficult to believe that “The Hedgehog” is only a few years older than I am, as he looks much older. Of course, the life of a porn star is a hard one.

It’s a balmy 20° out there this morning, and they say it’s going to get up to 37 today. That, of course, means we’re going to get punished: snow this morning, and sleet/freezing rain to end the work day. Should be nice. Tomorrow is supposed to be in the mid-forties, and Wednesday the mid-fifties. Then things gradually return to normal. Still it’ll be nice to get the driveway cleared of snow (somebody’s been a little lax in plowing; I blame it on the high cost of diesel).

Looks like Friday’s post was abandoned.  Today’s post will be short, since I have nothing important to say– like usual. Guess that sums it all up. Have a good one.

Another brisk morning here (and pretty much everywhere in the north from the midwest to the east coast). It was about -10 out our way (at least according to the thermometer in Granny’s car – my sister had -11 over at her place). It’s still well below zero, though there are hopes that we’ll hit double digits (barely) later on. Definitely keeps the beer nice and frosty. I have 4 tons of pellets coming tonight, which is good ‘cuz we’re down to about 20 bags, and that won’t last us 2 weeks if it stays this cold. Though they say we’ll be up to 40 next week, which will be nice.

It’s a balmy 1° outside this morning, and it doesn’t feel all that much warmer inside, to tell you the truth. My feet are cold. We’re not expected to crack double-digits today. Seems a shame to have to leave the house, but not only do I have to actually go to the office today, it’s stupid meeting day. Both are huge wastes of time and productivity killers. And it’s my late day, which means I have to sit around the house trying to figure out how to kill time before leaving the house, and then drive home in the dark (and cold – did I mention it’s cold?).

Today’s kind of a double-dose of “fuck you” to the wingnut racist assholes out there. Not only does that you-know-what get ceremonially sworn in front of upwards of a million of the lazy slackers on the public dole that he gave all kinds of gifts to so they’d vote for him and not have to work for a living, but it’s also a public holiday honoring that other you know what who fucked everything up for the white man (and we had such a good thing going for the first couple hundred years, too). No matter how disappointed I am with Obama, it’s always nice to see a few teabagger’s heads explode. Which is a neat trick, because their skulls are basically filled with inert ingredients.

Friday

Finally, it’s Friday – and a three-day weekend at that. Finally, I get to spend some quality time with my imaginary girlfriend. Maybe we’ll hang out with Lance Armstrong and do some “T”. It’s pretty cold here today, and while it’s supposed to warm up tomorrow, the thaw won’t last long, as next week we’re predicted to get much colder (below zero, even). So I decided it was time to finally order another 4 tons of pellets. We’re going through them pretty fast, and are down to about 30 bags (1200 pounds). At the rate we’re burning, that’s about two and a half weeks’ worth. I’m kinda into staying warm, now that I’m old.

Well, it’s always nice to start out the day with a trip to the dentist. Nothing too nasty today, however, and I received much praise for being such a good boy with my “home care.” So that’s it until July when it will hopefully be much warmer out than it is today. Now I just need to get through the rest of the day. Since I have now been given the go ahead to work from home on Tuesdays in addition to Fridays, and since Monday is a holiday, I won’t have to be in the office again until next Wednesday (which is another stupid meeting day). So basically, I’ll be in sweat pants and flannel bathrobe from about 3:30 this afternoon until 7:45 next Wednesday morning. I can probably get away with doing laundry about once every three weeks now.

Wednesday

I really don’t like Wednesdays. They’ve always been the kind of day you just want to get over so that you can get to Thursday, which isn’t Friday but it’s the next best thing. And Wednesdays are the days where I have to work until 5:00, which really sucks. It gives me more time in the morning, of course, but I don’t really need more time. I’m out of bed no later than 4:45 (I’d get up earlier, but I have the water heater set to come on a 4:30, so I just lay around waiting for the water to get hot enough to take a shower), and am generally out the door by 6:10. Except on Wednesdays, when I don’t have to leave until about 7:50 or so. By 6:45 I’m kind of sitting around trying to figure out what to do. No way do I want to go to work – it’s a long enough day as it is.

Seante Majority Leader Harry Reid says a federal assault weapons ban is (probably) doomed, because there’s no way it’ll pass in the House. I suppose that’s true. I mean, what’s a measly 20 or so six year old kids compared to the profits on selling high powered firearms with high-capacity magazines? We can always make more kids, but money? That’s a precious commodity.
