Found Post

I was poking around in my draft folder and found this peach.

Waste not, want not.

****************************************************************************************************************** Man, this RockStar double shot is strong. I nursed one all morning, and here we are after lunch and I can barely keep up with my thoughts. So what the heck, lets roll with it and see where I end up.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part 2 was a waste of money and time. What a disappointment. I loved the books, well, most of the books. The Deathly Hallows seemed a tad rushed and didn’t flow at all. I’m sorry to say the movie was just as sloppy.

I loved the books, and the earlier movies. Hogwarts was so freaking cool and I wanted to steal some decorating tips from the Griffindor Common room.

The last few movies were all dark and depressing… bleargh.

I finished the latest Dresden File’s book early this morning, hence the need for the energy drink. “Ghost Story” was different from the previous books, and ended in a far different place than expected. I like it.

The Boys are at my In-Laws for a few days, then this weekend they go to my parent’s house, I miss them. The house is way too quiet without them. This will be the last time this summer they will be away from home for more than a day or two, and I’m cool with that.

This has been a very unproductive day. I’m buzzing like a… well like something that buzzes real hard.


The new budget was passed, or whatever. Yup, we’re still hosed. Oh, well. I’m doing well at not worrying about it. No matter what happens, it will pass. The sun will still rise in the mornings, etc etc. Pretty enlightened and zen, huh? I don’t have confidence in the politicos in DC… that’s not exactly true- I believe they are masters at knowing which way the wind is blowing and have a solid idea of the life expectancy of their careers should they allow the country to completely go to hell. That, and we’re Americans, dammit. Come what may, we’ll push through and come out the other end in good shape. It will hurt for a while, positively suck.

I’m feeling the urge to build the Shack again. I’m thinking something small out at the Family Acreage, a warm weather place. Four walls and a roof, enough to keep the weather and bugs out. From what I’ve seen online, attractive little cabins can be built from reclaimed i.e. scrap material as long as some thought and attention to detail is supplied. I’d say something the size of the rundown lake cabin I looove staying in, with larger porches, and fixed up of course. No reason for the place to look like a dump.

What is up with USA’s In Plain Sight? This season is just depressing. The same for Covert Affairs. I need a change. Fewer of these “dramas” and more sitcoms. Too bad most of the 30 minutes stuff I’ve seen is crap…

Speaking of change, I’m bored with my favorite authors. Except for Jim Butcher, it seems. Ask me again the third time I read Ghost Story. That might be the problem… I re-read everything. Before “Ghost Story” I read “Abraham Lincoln; Vampire Hunter”. I felt stimulated, which hardly ever happens anymore. Now I have to find new writers. Work, work, work.

I’ll Pay to Watch This

I’m not into the 3D move scene. It’s an overpriced gimmick, right? But- I will go see this!

The entitlement mentality is leading both England and the United States down the crapper.

Moron(s) indeed.

Sen. Tom Coburn (R) Oklahoma Speaks Truth

Holy crap, now I’ve seen it all – A politician speaking common sense.

The video is 27 minutes long, but worth watching. I’m going to keep an eye on this guy, in a good way.


Let It Rain

Red is a monster U2 fan, and has been most of her life. We went down to the Twin Cities to catch their show last weekend.

It was the Greatest Concert I have ever experienced.

We lined up around 1 P.M., the day was hot and humid. Interpol opened at 7 and U2 started at 9.

Shortly after 9 it started raining. Biblical downpour.

We were soaking wet, tired, our feet were bitching… and still-

Best. Concert. Ever.

It was almost a religious experience, an emotional high. Tired, soaking wet, 60,000 fans all singing…
