Random Musings

Our computer is once again acting the fool, so they may be some glitches in posting and commenting … and forewarned is forearmed.
Yeah, I don’t know what that has to do with a computer crash, but I thought I’d say it anyway.
A couple of weeks back — as Spring-like weather, hell, almost Summer-like weather, hit Smallville — I got my first Winter cold. Yes, always a step behind, that’s me.

But I soldiered on and I got through it because that’s how I roll. Then Carlos got the Winter-Spring-Summer cold, and, well, as much as I love him, I have a hard time playing nurse to a sick Princess so …

I posted an ad on Facebook:
Free to a Good Home: My husband, Carlos … who has the sniffles, because, well, ain't nobody got time for that!
I got lots of ‘Likes’ but no ‘Takers,’ which, I guess is kinda good because he’s feeling better now.
I am over those ABC ads for the Diane Sawyer interview with Bruce Jenner where they photograph him in shadow like he’s some kind of corporate spy squealing on The Man.

It reeks of a Maury Povich “Are you the father” piece of crap and Sawyer and ABC should be, should be, better than that.
Speaking of better than that … Tennessee? WTF?

The state’s House of Representatives have just passed a bill making The Bible the “official” state book because, well, Tennessee likes to look as crazy as possible.

And we have one man, a Republican, of course, Jerry Sexton to thank for that:
"History's going to tell us where we stand on this. I'm grateful to have the opportunity to have the side that I'm onIt may be kind to me in the future and it may not be kind, and that's OK. I made a decision for today and I feel good about it."
Well, good for you Jerry, that you’re happy, but did you think once about any people in Tennessee who don’t believe in your Bible, or any Bible, or are you just giving a giant Middle Finger to anyone who doesn’t agree with you or thinks that Separation of Church and State means SEPARATION????
A couple of vacation notes …

We’re off … finally … for our trip to Miami the last week of April.

I was ready for some sun and surf and Cuban coffee and sammiches the last time … until the rip was cancelled at the last second. Fingers crossed.

Also, there is a chance we’ll be headed up to Cambridge over the summer. I have never been up that way before and am looking forward to that trip if all goes well. Fingers crossed again.
The GOP Clown Car just picked up another passenger …

Rumor has it that Ben Carson will announce on May 4th that he wants to be the next President of the United Sates of America.

Oh, and he doesn't like gay people, same-sex marriage, but he’s keen on using the Bible as a weapon of discrimination.

Add that to the fact that he’s never held political office anywhere and, well, he’s just about perfect … for the Clown Car.
I know … I know … there are lots of good, really good, police officers out there, but with this latest rash of police shootings, and of officers running down suspected criminals with their patrol cars, just makes me think we need to reboot what it means to be a member of law enforcement these days.
And it’s a good thing the GOP Clown Car has bench seating, because now it looks like New Jersey Governor Chris Christie is ready for his shot at the White House, too.

I cannot wait for the first time he goes off on a reporter or a constituent or a woman who cuts in front of him while in line at Chipotle.

Should be fun … especially considering that, right now, Krispy Kreme is polling in the single digits among likely Republican voters.
Oh, and one more …

When Marco Rubio was announcing that he was announcing an announcement that he would announce a run at the White House, his Twitter feed took on an air of an HOB show, Game of Thrones … because nothing says intelligent viable campaign start like ripping off a TV program.
Hillary Clinton has hired openly gay Robby Mook to be a campaign advisor as she makes her bid for the White House.

I like the idea, because I like Hillary, and Robby is totally adorable and I’m shallow like that.

Wait a minute....they actually blur out Jenner in the interview??? Like no one knows what he looks like. Very excited about Hillary.... You give Christie credit...chipotle is to healthy for him. Just the other day I hear he ordered just toast for breakfast in a diner. To be used as a coaster for his Virginia Ham roast I believe. Did I say that out loud. I do like him and can respect he says what he thinks, but won't vote for him.

PS. I think you'll adore Cambridge, I have family there.

I'm am soooo dreading this campaign season; hubby jumped on the "let's rant about politics" bandwagon the day I jumped off and I know what I'm going to hear for the next--how many months? (oh lord, please, I can't do months of this!)At least at least parts of hit should be humorous!

If I had seen your Facebook post, I would have taken Carlos off your hands. It would be interesting to watch him communicate with San Geraldo... or not.

Ben Carson is another fine example of the power of education. When you start with your brains in your ass, you simply become a bigger asshole.
