Eli's Coming

2008-02-04 - 11:42 a.m.

Yesterday was birthday number 42 for me. Amazingly enough, no body parts fell I went to work.

Due to the Super Bowl, it was quiet enough that, once another supervisor showed, I got to leave early. I picked up some lunch/dinner and made it home in time to watch the entire game. It wasn't the expected rout - it was a good close one that, even if the Giants had lost, it was one they could be proud of. (Yes, this is what the title refers to. Brin's idea., I'm not.)

Brin and I then went to California Adventure, where I rode Screamin' (twice) and Tower Of Terror (once) before we did Soarin'. Then we crossed the plaza for Haunted Mansion and a pretzel. Then a little shopping at World Of Disney (she got me two Jessica Rabbit pins as gifts) and then home and to our respective corners.

I got to go to the Parks and spend time with my best friend. It was a good birthday.


Okay, enough of that. Time for the political crap.

Hillary had to be prodded three times, but she finally told George Stephanopoulos that there would be an "enforcement mechanism" in place if you choose NOT to buy health care. As in, she will garnish your wages.

What? Choose for yourself? We can't have that! The government knows what's best for YOU...and your money.

Oh, and oops - she did it again.


Here's some more Nanny State bullshit:

A bill has been introduced to the Mississippi legislature that would make it illegal for state-licensed restaurants to serve the obese. The state Health Department would "establish weight criteria after consultation with Mississippi's Council on Obesity". There would likely be scales outside each restaurant, and you'd have to weigh in before you could dig in.

Now, I'm a fat guy. All my excess weight is at my belly, and it's hard to get rid of it. But my doctor has told me that I'm in pretty good shape otherwise. My legs and arms are very firm, and I get walks in regularly.


Boy, I hope none of you need surgery in Europe. You might leave with more sickness than you came in with.

And the extremists of al-Qaeda have found new suicide bombers. No word yet from CAIR if this is a Bad Thing.


Well, onward into the day.

Thanks again for all the birthday wishes.

Be seeing you.
