    They told me I was going to lose the fight

    I got exactly one thing done this weekend.  One.  I fiddle farted around with a bunch of things but only one got finished.  I was pretty much numb and sleep walking up until I gave blood yesterday and then I came back to life. I went out onto the healthcare marketplace and bought insurance.  And it was no big deal.  It took about 10 minutes.  The hardest part was figuring out that the system didn’t like Chrome and wanted Safari.  Once I got through that it was no big deal.  It worked smoothly like any other website.  Well almost any. Because with all of the hullabaloo about how difficult everything…

    But here I am in prison

    I feel like a drunken Irish folk song is in order. I certainly got punched in the gut today. Quite honestly, this one is as bad as Beauregard. Norman and his legendary lick granulomas.  Everyone that met him had a solution for his lick granulomas.  Put this on it, do that, isn’t there something you can do?  Dr. Johnson said I would never solve them and I didn’t.  He died with two bloody hocks.  Bloody from his own incessant licking. I had recently done some reading up on them.  I thought if I got a deal ahead I would take him to UC Davis to have the laser treatment, the only…

    We did the monster mash

    I kind of love that the guy whose name I did not mention also had his name not mentioned by Rachel Maddow.  And I thought I was so freaking clever.   As well it should. Then there is this little gem which just makes me smile. Part of me is sick of youtube cutesy pranks but this one is clever.  Some of the other ones are just stupid.  This one is not stupid. And I have to say the news is pretty amusing to me right now. CNN spent about 10 days being all about the missing plane while Fox News continued to “report” on Obamacare and I can’t remember…

    King Nothing

    Bad people die every day in this world.  This week a really bad man died.  Good riddance. While part of me would like to see a protest of such a magnitude that the march on Washington would be dwarfed, a bigger part of me says the most poignant thing that can be done is nothing.  Not give him any ink.  Not say his name.  And not protest his funeral if there is one.  There are reports that there will be no funeral.  What a bunch of pussies. Because he is not worth the gasoline to drive there.  He is not worth the time off work.  He is not worth the…

    A doleful damsel I heard cry

    One of my biggest fears came to fruition for 239 people over the China Sea on Friday.  You have no idea how much I have to steel myself to get on an airplane any more.  It’s kind of amazing that this world is so big and so small all at the same time.  It’s hard to get away with anything with all of the surveillance cameras and cell phones and GPS and everything else.  But drop a 777 in the China Sea and poof!  It’s gone! The last time something like this happened Air France dumped one into the drink.  And they screwed up and dumped it in the drink.…
