A Republican senator from Massachusetts?

A song for Democrats:

"Jaws on the ground, jaws on the ground,
lookin' like fools with your jaws on the ground..."

Can't stop the signal, Mal.

Did I hear someone say "Miranda"?

Well, I am a Leo:

You Are a Lion

You are radiant and energetic. You have a strong sense of intuition, and you use it.
You have strength, but you prefer not to use it. You avoid confrontations. You are good at getting what you want in life. You are full of stealthy moves. You are deeply creative and imaginative. Whenever you feel stuck, you immediately try another course of action.

What African Animal Are You?

Work is Hard. Time for Blogthings!

You know, I'm not much of a baseball fan. I quit watching when they went on strike. The only baseball I watch these days is our local AA farm club, the Springfield Cardinals. But even we, here in flyover country, know that the Red Sox and the Yankees have been bitter rivals for many, many years. If a person really and truly wants to become a senator representing a state with a baseball team such as the Red Sox, she should not call one of their living legends a Yankees fan. Unless, of course, she wants to be run out of town on a rail.

Okay, this doesn't make anyone look incompetent, uh, stupid, uh... yeah, it does:
John Brennan, assistant to the president for counterterrorism and homeland security, said top intel officials simply didn't understand all the intelligence pointing to a possible terrorist attack, which came true when a Nigerian national tried to blow up a U.S. airliner with a bomb in his underwear.
Brilliant! "We" had the information, but "we" didn't know what it meant. And they're supposed to be the intelligent ones?

It's time phor phreezing Phriday Phideaux! Today we are honoring the miracle of global warming. Seriously. Thanks to Al Gore and his global warming bologna, we're all gonna freeze to death:

Thanks again to ihasahotdog.com for the wonderful photographs. More photos to come next Phriday, so stay tuned!

Do you have a Snuggie? Don't be ashamed if you do. I know everybody is mocking them on TV these days, but they really are warm. Then they came out with a Snuggie for your dog (not a chance, Bandit). But now, they've come up with one that is really practical: The Snuggle Suit. My first thought was "good grief!", but then I realized how convenient it would be getting out of the bath. Just slip it on and it would absorb all the moisture the towel missed. Plus you could lounge around the house in it without worrying about exposing your nether region to the world. And for the record, no, I'm not getting anything for this. I'm not advertising for them or Penney's. Just thought somebody might be interested.

Well, this story certainly is interesting:
The grandson of former President Ronald Reagan was arrested Thursday for investigation of obstructing an officer who responded to his home after the grandson unknowingly tripped a silent alarm, a family member said.
Sounds a lot like a certain professor trying to get into his home a few months ago, doesn't it? Do you think Bambi will invite him to the White House for a beer? Yeah, neither do I.

Today would have been my father-in-law's 91st birthday. He was a wonderful man and is sorely missed. Oh yeah, it also would have been Elvis's 75th birthday, but I don't miss him as much. Or at all, really.

Ooh! Looks like somebody got his feathers ruffled.
Republican National Committee Chairman Michael S. Steele on Thursday challenged some of the most prominent critics in his party to fire him or "shut up."
Well, I know what I would do. He is spending so much time hawking his book or making speeches for personal gain, while seats that we could be getting away from the Democrats are slipping through his fingers. If he doesn't want to do the job, he should step down, not wait for someone to fire him so he can claim victim status.

Speaking of Firefly, do you ever get the feeling that the country is just waiting for someone to stand up and say, "Miranda"? If someone did, who would respond?

Unorganized Militia Propaganda Corps

When you get a minute, man (see what I did there?) check out this website. You won't be disappointed. I wasn't.

For the record, the family football pool was a major success this year, well for me at least. My teams won the pool! My daughter owes me $1.62 and my husband owes me $1.75. Not so much, you say? That's true, but it's a penny a point, and we only had two teams each. I'm happy with it. Now if they'll just pay up...

Isn't she pretty? Sticking with the Firefly theme, I've named her Kaylee. Kaylee wants to be feminine, but she also has a tough side to her. She is my final 2009 Christmas present. She arrived today and was welcomed with open hand. Very easy for me to handle one-handed, where her older sister Zoe takes both hands. But they both have their purposes. This one will come in handy when I get my CCL, which is on my things-to-do list for this year.

Well, when I arose this fine winter day I found my car had indeed been returned to my drive. However, I was quite dismayed to find the ENTIRE GRILL IS MISSING!!! All I can say right now is, This Story Better Be Good. grrr...

I guess there are more nuts in D.C. besides the ones in Congress. It seems the city is suing AT&T. When people buy those prepaid telephone cards, frequently they don't use all the minutes on the card. The city wants AT&T to turn the value of those minutes over to them, so they can use them for, well, whatever. In the suit, they are calling those minutes "unclaimed property", making them available to the city. What next? Claiming the toothpaste you can't get out of the tube? Leftovers from dinner? Gimme a break.

Well, here it is 11 pm and the temperature is zero. That's right, zero. At least the wind isn't blowing very hard, so the wind chill is only -8 degrees. I had to resort to putting on my housecoat tonight. It's supposed to get cold later this week, so I guess I'll keep it close.

Here's good news. My son-in-law came by today to let me know my car was at a neighboing town's convenience store, because the tranny crapped out. Just dandy. I didn't say anything to him, because I'm too angry. Now I'm out a car, can't drive the truck, and am going to wind up either letting it sit forever or paying a grand to fix the transmission. I know they're not gonna do it. When they get their tax return they're supposed to be getting a car so they don't have to use mine. And now I can't use it either. ACK!! Yes, I realize it wasn't exactly a new car (1991), but it was all I had. I am seriously considering letting it sit. I don't drive that often, though it's nice to know I can. I'm trying to save some money so I can go on a trip this summer.

I guess I have my anger to keep me warm.

Here's a new website for you to check out. If you believe in our Constitution and think it should be the guiding document of our nation, along with the Federalist Papers and the Declaration of Independence, check out What Choice Have We?, a "place where all true Americans, all those that love and cherish our Constitution, our country, our democracy can meet and share ideas." I know the man who is setting up this forum, and he's not a nut or kook. He's a man who truly cares about this nation and hates what is happening to it. Anyway, give it a look. You have to sign in, but it's free. It keeps out the bots.

This is a hoot! Apparently, it is newsworthy now when the Bambi family goes out to get snowcones. Funny, when I was a kid we had them all the time. They weren't "Hawaiian delicacies"; we got them off the ice cream truck that ran through the neighborhood. I liked the blue ones best.

I was just telling Sir Mugley about the stores in England already selling Easter eggs and candy, and he informed me that our local stores had Easter and Valentine's Day displays out! What is the big hurry? Easter isn't until April! Not that I wouldn't like it to be springtime, but come on!
