hakuna batata... I blame German Prisons for one of my favorite foods.

Morning, dear journal!

A great lot of energy this morning, but absent-minded...rode to the beach to take piccies, but I'd forgotten to take the camera with me... Oh well, it was nice to see the sunrise by the beach, anyhow.... it came up pretty late, right at about 7am. (I was thinking it was going to pop up about a half hour earlier.) I've decided that we need more windmills here... I think it'd be a nice addition to the solar panels on the tops of any beachfront buildings, and it could help power them, too...but not the cheesy new-style room-fan type...but the cool, old, versions, either the farm kind or my real preference, the groovy Holland 4-fin.

Looks like there's going to be rain this weekend... I hope it doesn't hurt the art fair.

President Bush's lawyers have concluded that he can attack Iraq without congressional approval because the approval given to his father in 1991 is still in effect. This decision raises another, much more frightening possibility: If anything should happen to Bush Sr., W. would find himself married to his own mother. Neither Barbara nor Laura Bush could be reached for comment. Suddenly Bush's urgent desire to repeal the estate tax makes a lot more sense. After all, who wants to have to mail 37% of their mom to the government?

Here's some pretentiousness... Lie to your wedding guests-
The fancier the cake, the more you'll pay. The average is $3 a slice. Don’t get a cake that serves everyone - buy a smaller version of the cake you love but can’t afford. After the photos, have it rolled into the kitchen "to be sliced." Your guests don’t have to know that they're getting sheet cake that costs about 50 cents a slice.

And some non-pretentiousness-
Willy Wonka: (sings with a dark and foreboding tone) "There's no earthly way of knowing which direction we are going. There's no knowing where we're rowing or which way the river's flowing. Is it raining? Is it snowing? Is a hur-ra-cane-a blowing? Not a speck of light is showing. So the danger must be growing. Are the fires of hell a-glowing? Is the grisly reaper mowing?! YES! THE DANGER MUST BE GROWING! FOR THE ROWERS KEEP ON ROWING! AND THEY'RE CERTAINLY NOT SHOWING! ANY SIGNS THAT THEY ARE SLOWING!!!"

Heeeeeeere I come to save the dayyyyyy.... (again)....

another "emergency". Heck, I know that I'm earning my keep, anyhow.

Dale called in with a migraine, and Kev's not in to work yet, so they're coming so I can get there early. Early being between 45 and 30 minutes ahead of schedule.

Dingalings...it's not like we traffic in organs or anything that's *THAT* time-sensitive. I don't mind, though... free ride to work and I'll bug out a half-hour or so early today. Hopefully that'll translate into a half-hour more time with my sweetie before tucking her in... I suspect she's going to be sleepy after her busy day today.

See you later, dear journal!

(no subject)

Finn pissed off Kev today. Dumb dumb dumb. He's her only strong supporter....burning bridges, she is. Fury is short, memories are long.

Tomorrow is going to be a busy day.... Cyndi lauper and the bookstore in the morning, art fair in the afternoon, and hanging out with Dave at night.... keeping him company while his wife and her pals have a girls' night out. I'm glad it's a long weekend ahead, so I have time to do some resting up afterwards... I want to spend some nice quality time with my sweetheart, too, on Sunday or Monday... (or both! :) )

Neat... photos from an area near my town.... small world, LJ!

My brother said that someone came by my house today when I wasn't home... no note on the door.. I wonder if Mio accepted a package for me? I'll find out tomorrow, I guess.

I got my computer desk home tonight, so I'll assemble that sometime this weekend... maybe tonight?
