Happy New Year!

Love and Luck and Health and Wealth!

Have a very Happy New Year.

(Be careful out there. And don’t do anything I wouldn’t do. *snort*)

And another thing!

How do snowplow drivers get to work?!

Oops.

The 35 Most Shameful Events of 2004

De. Freaking. Cide.

Grrrrr. Apparently Bush didn’t hyperventilate quickly enough about the tsunami, for the same people who constantly accuse him of overreacting, acting too quickly, and spending too much money. The same liberal pool that can’t be bothered to donate their own money.

Leslie Gelb from the Council on Foreign Relations gets a quote telling Post readers that Bush had to “show people that this matters to [him], that [he] cares.”

Oy gevalt. He needs to show that he cares. But if word ever got out that even a single minute might have been lost because he was praying for the victims, well, just let the floodgates of derision open. Surely that’s impeachment-worthy, right? These hypocrites drive me insane.

Homeward Bound

Beautiful.

Thank you!!

Smells like wet dog

It never fails to baffle me. The pooch loves having baths. With the hose in the yard or the basement, I don’t even have to leash him. If he walks away, I just call him back and tell him I’m not done and he has no problem with it. He loves to go to the groomers, tho their calisthenics, pulling his legs around, make him gimpy for a day or two, so I’m trying to stop sending him there.

But he will not get in the bathtub. On the few occasions where I’ve had no choice, I’ve had to force him, and even then I risked pulling back a stump.

Just one of the many weird things about adopting an abused dog. You never get to find out why certain things scare the living hell out of them. I’d love to get my hands on whoever broke him.

Gah!

You know what I just love?

When you’re sitting in a long line of cars waiting to get out of a crowded parking lot/off-ramp/intersection, and you see someone up ahead do something dumb but harmless, and the person holding up the line has to sit there for thirty seconds being AGHAST at the mistake, instead of getting over it and out of my fucking way.

Grow up, drama queens. Tantrums are for before you’re old enough to drive.

Crazy Talk!

Home Depot, bless their blackened little hearts, are building something in my local store. So to make up for the missing space, they’ve rearranged the entire store. The entire store. And the stuff that was left over is in a big white prefab building in the parking lot. Which means that no one has the slightest idea where anything is. I’ve been there twice this week and it’s taken me an hour each time to find five things. Fortunately, they’ve moved most of the endcap signs to the correct new very general areas, or it would have taken even longer.

The layout of Home Depot is exactly the same in every store in the free world. Except this one. I mean, the paint-mixing section is in the back, by the garden center, and flooring is next to it. In the back of the store. Is anyone else picturing hell freezing over?

You never saw me.

Sorry, back to tiling, painting, and the neverending unpacking. And it’s going to be almost 60

I’m not sure why this surprises me…

but it does. A lot.

And I can’t help but wonder if the results would be noticeably different if foxnews.com polled the same question…
