I've been hiding at work.
The troubled child business is alive and well, unfortunately, and combining that with flu season makes for a lot of opportunities for overtime at work. Today is my first day off since last Wednedsay.
Has anyone else noticed the downright hateful coverage of today's innagural? I can only speculate, of course, but I seriously doubt if John F'n Kerry had been elected that any of the major news organizations would be squaking about the cost, or the corporate sponsorship, or which bands were playing, yadda yadda yadda.
It seemed to me like they had already produced all these celebratory CGI graphics, and were using them just out of necessity, but with no real enthusiasm.
I will give kudos, however, to Bill Clinton and Bush Sr. Those two have been working hard to put politics aside and do what is absolutely right in regards to the tsunami aid. And one giant raspberry to Bill O'Reilly for polarizing George Clooney's genuine effort to raise money as well. I am a conservative, yes, but this does not mean that I am a grandma-stomping billionaire (my W-2 is proof of that.) As a human, and a Christian, I truly care about others, and applaud any and all efforts to relieve the suffering.
Personal goals today are to do laundry, and make a trip to the Home Depot for some supplies so I can finally restain my deck.
Oh, and still no treadmill, thanks to Premiere Fitness of Little Rock. They've already cashed the check, but the Landis L-7 is still "In transit". I can picture the two Mongolian messengers now traversing the South American jungle in an effort to bring me my treadmill.
Now go do the right thing! (hehe)
