Slept much better today.

I can't really go into details, but something happened at work that put my job in jeopardy. That's why I didn't sleep well Tuesday evening/Wednesday morning, and why my boss called me so early - he wanted details. When I got to work yesterday, he called me into his office and assured me that my position was secure, and that was also the word from the folks at corporate.

Hence the rock-like state of my sleep last night. Whew.


I think I've made another discovery about cats. I don't think they like the color green.

Solange doesn't sleep on my bed on a regular basis (whether I'm in it or not). The bedding is a greenish-blue shade, as are the pillowcases.

My parents had a cat named Bandit, and she hated the lawn - I once saw her sprint from the sidewalk to the front walkway of their house. She wouldn't walk on the lawn at all if she could avoid it.

Or maybe it's just those two. Midnite liked the lawn.


Hillary continues her campaign to seat the Michigan and Florida delegates, despite the rules that the Democratic party laid down...and that she herself agreed to and signed onto!!

She is so deluded, she's comparing her fight to freeing the slaves.

She wants this presidency - nay, she feels she DESERVES this presidency - and will do anything to get it.

If Obama makes her his VP running mate and they get elected, I think at some point she'd have him assassinated. She wants the presidency that badly.


Here's a woman who doesn't feel she must vote for Hillary...and makes her feelings quite clear.

Just look at the title of the article.


A newly elected California congresswoman evidently walked away from a mortgage made in 2007...a mortgage, according to the article, she has made exactly zero payments on.

Must be nice.


Maybe Brin can explain this: San Francisco is about to start charging pollution fees to businesses. Businesses will have to pay 4.4 cents per ton of carbon dioxide they generate. The money will go towards "programs to measure the region's emissions and develop ways to reduce them."

It may not amount to much - most businesses will pay less that $1 - but some factories may have to pay up to $500,000.

From the article:

Bay Area district officials believe the agency has that authority because global warming is raising surface temperatures, which worsens air quality.

More global warming bullshit. With this and the Berkeley City Council's choices, it's a wonder SF has any businesses at all.


Well, I have a lot to do today. There's a ball game at 4pm (Angels v. Blue Jays), and I need to get everything done by then.

Be seeing you.

Oh, Dave, I've given up on trying to explain SF politics. I think it's more symbolic than anything, the new surcharge, but I honestly have no real idea anymore as to what these dips are up to.

I think all cats are different. My black cat, Screamer, rolls around in the grass all the time. As for Hillary, I figure that if she loses the election, she will still move into the White House, proclaiming that she still has a chance to win this thing. The whole, "I won't give up" mentality is just a little psycho-scary, you know?
