I paid $10.50 to see “Syriana” which was not bad, but I should have seen the 3-hour “King Kong” for that money.
I lazed around my parents’ place today. Played some sudoku. I’m trying out a new technique I learned, but I need to come up with a new system for double-checking it.
Ava came out to the Island (Long, not Ship) to visit.
I am getting so fat.
My mom is making the annual Christmas tree bread, little bread balls baked together to look like a Christmas tree. Woo-ha!
Angel hair or linguine fini? It’s a no brainer. Angel hair cooks faster. In other news, I woke up this morning and discovered Robert Mugabe is president of the United States. Well, the American people won’t stand for it. Except that warmongering Christian fascists own the country. I’ll just fax my DNA to the Justice […]
I actually had a pretty good day. What’s going on? My boss gave me a good year-end evaluation and I now have a work plan for the next year. This is the first real direction I’ve gotten from work since August 27, 2005 when they said, “evacuate.” Went to yoga this evening. I am sore, […]
I’m sure I’ve mentioned before how brain numbing the visitor center is in the winter, so I won’t say it again.
“Swordfish” was awful but I washed the taste out of my mouth with “Happy Endings”, “Made”, and “Rize”.
Random searches of LiveJournal (so authorized under the USAPATRIOT Act) turned up: Several college students writing about college stuff. A German guy who goes to concerts and takes pictures of art. A high school student who likes photography and has a crush on a girl named Olivia. Some guy in a band who hasn’t posted […]
Another slow day at work. I work in a tourist facility in a place with no tourists. They are not giving me enough to do right now…
The recent long lines at the post office are getting worse with the holidays. As usual the stamp vending machine wasn’t working, so I got in line just to buy a book of stamps. The guy behind me kept telling me corny jokes, and that helped pass the time. “How does Santa Claus keep from […]
Did anybody hear that bitch Cunningham blubbering about how he let down the American people?
I’ve searched my soul and, nope, I just can’t muster up any sympathy for Stanley Tookie Williams.
A story on NPR related how American cotton subsidies hurt farmers in Africa. American officials agree in principle to ending the subsidies, but only if European countries join in on a broad reduction of similar agricultural programs. The US and Europe have been going back and forth over this for years. A World Bank official […]
There was a lot of stupid stuff in it but the tripods of death were pretty scary.
Back to work in Disasterland. Carol, our volunteer, and I hosted about twenty little kids and their parents who are living on a cruise ship in Pascagoula. FEMA and some Americorps volunteers arranged for them to visit the park. Carol taught them to make Christmas tree ornaments out of dried starfish (ordered from a catalog; […]
I’m back from a week in Charleston, with a stop in Atlanta.
We’re having a “holiday” luncheon at work tomorrow. The decorations are complete with Christmas trees, Santa Claus (and Mrs. Claus), and reindeer, so there’s no doubt which holiday we are really celebrating. Usually the park installs a Christmas tree in the visitor center. This year I objected to it, though in fact Christmas trees are […]
