i woke up at 3 am this morning. my arms and legs were screaming at me to go exercise. brain said shut up and go back to sleep. 10 minutes later i was in the living room doing calisthenics in the dark.

  xmas sux0rs
christmas sucks. the ding-a-lings from the salvation army with the red buckets and jingle bells have been mercifully quiet. we shopped early and online and avoided the crowds. but christmas still sucks. the suckiest part of christmas is cleaning the reindeer shit off the roof.

  dumb parents
a friend of mine was recently released from jail. she was in jail because her daughter took her company credit cards and had a good time. her company insisted on pressing charges and mom absolutely would not give her daughter the hard love that she desperately needs. so now mom has no job. and no prospects for getting one because of the criminal record. and her daughter has learned she can get away with theft 'cause mom'll do your time.

  christmas tree
usually i dread shopping for a christmas tree. they're ungodly expensive, ugly, it takes freakin forever for everyone to agree. and i'm alergic to the stupid things. this year we got a beautiful tree for $23 from home depot. it was the second one we looked at. in and out in under 15 minutes. and best of all: no rash. merry christmas to me.

  fumble cat
garrett and i invented a game today. we toss huckle cat (a toy, not a real living animal) across the room. scream FUMBLE! race to and jump on it. the winner gets to throw huckle cat next. great fun. especially when mom plays.

  nudity
apparently some dorks are complaining to the fcc about indecency at the olympics on broadcast tv. apparently there were some statues of naked men that may or may not have actually been broadcast. then there was the dancing pregnant lady. give me a freakin' break. the original olympians competed in the buff.

  support our troops
give these guys medals. read me. not court marshals. if you're gonna stand in the white house and ask us to support our troops then you should probably lead by example. dork.

  lego train
the boys are finally old enough now to let them play with my lego train set. i built a switcher engine. it turned out really well. i was very pleased. hopefully it won't suffer any catastrophes sleeping next to garrett's bed. we built a couple of loops of track with switches and discussed how electricity works.

  death penalty
according to this fire investigator, there's no such thing as an accidental fire. anyone who survives a fire must be the one that set it. read me. so if you happen to find yourself fleeing a burning building in texas, you might as well turn around and go back in. save yourself some pain.

  amazon
sheehs. how long has amazon been in business? before dinner, we ordered a book for the boys and a book for me. no confirmation button. after dinner, amazon sends us a confirmation for just the boys' book. and a second confirmation for both books. and my book was still in the shopping cart. it was too late to cancel the first order. i removed the boy's book from the second order and emptied the shopping cart. unfortunately, now neither order qualifies for free super saver shipping. an email to customer service got a one time only $3.99 refund of one of the shipping charges. sheehs.

  intelligent design
as much as i get really pissed off when religious cranks try to pass off intelligent design as a bona fide theory and inject it into public school curricula, evolution doesn't exclude it. all that is required is some sort of selective pressure. like survival of the fittest. or in the case of modern cows and crops: human intervention ie an intelligent designer. it really hurts me to open that door.

  line item veto 2
i did some research. turns out we wouldn't need the popular line item veto if we could lose the 1974 budget act. before then presidents could impound funds for pork projects. and they did. often. until nixon's little adventure. now we're stuck with a process that gives us projects funded in perpetuity making government bigger and bigger. fortunately, the deficits are clearly out of control and something has to be done. hopefully, it will be something rational. yeah, right.

  line item veto
bush wants a line item veto. clinton had it. supreme court took it away. bush will have to replace the supreme court in order to have it back. 'course that's an actual possibility. interestingly, the supreme court ruled that congress cannot give the president the power of line item veto unless he already had that power as granted by the constitution. so i guess bush could just claim he has it.
