In The Real World

2007-05-16 - 11:29 a.m.

Wednesday. Middle of the week. "Hump" day. Well, that's how it is for most of you - for me, it's my Friday.

Back and shoulder are getting better, thank you very much. Next time I have to fix that game, I'm squeezing another employee into the cabinet to help hold that thing in place.


As I write this, it's 66 degrees outside. Last week, it had climbed into the mid-90s. Gee, what happened to that global warming?


Gas prices have gone up, and now down just a little. Remember, gang - the price per barrel (which is controlled by OPEC, since we use so much foreign oil because we aren't allowed to drill for more in ANWR or off-shore) has nothing to do with how much gas costs. Neither does Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez' decision to have his government control all Venezuela's oil fields so that he can charge whatever he wants and keeps all the money. It's all President Bush's fault.


Love the headline: Paris Hilton 'Distraught' Over Jail Time.

She's so upset, she can't coherently testify as the defendant in a civil lawsuit.

Excuse me while I feel bad for...okay, I'm done.

Yo, Paris - if having all that money is just too much work, send some to me. I'm sure I can put it to good use.


Nothing else happening. Must do laundry before work.

Shower's free.

Be seeing you.

Disclaimer: The washing of laundry and the availability of the shower have nothing to do with one another. Honest.

Absolutely true. The laundry room is available to the entire apartment complex...unlike my shower. :)

Beats the apartment complex where our downstairs 20-something trust-fund kiddie neighbors would toss a load in and then disappear all day so when you went into the laundry room, you found both washers filled with wet clothes. Sure, you could dump 'em on the table, but then you had no room to sort and fold your own stuff.
