The Big 2008 Sigh

The Soap Opera known as My Life continues.

Sorry for the light blogging of late. Between going back to work after the campus holiday and being under the weather all weekend and overwhelmed by flaky cars and hysterical college drama and chasing my tail about how to go about spiffing up this little blog and worrying about my friend and her husband with the newly discovered prostate cancer and staring down the barrel of a birthday with a ZERO in it, well… SIGH (queue dramatic effect) … I’m trying.

At least I haven’t cried. Yet. Give me a minute, I’m sure a can work a good one up.

Fausta is on the ball with her Monday Latin American carnival. She even managed to shop! A cute red shirt, on sale even. I can’t get the laundry caught up.

Gerard has the coolest round-up ever (with pictures) and supports the American Thinker’s notion of a real POTY. Gerard is the greatest. And he’s been some of the same places I have. I want to go back. Yeah, that’s the ticket. I need a vacation.

With one one of many on the way to the slammer , another gets his reward. Read his last post here. Full of quotes, my favorite is (from Babylon 5)

“I will see you again, in the place where no shadows fall.”

RIP dear son of America. Sooner or later they will come for me; I refuse to be assimilated. Yoda always said I was a stubborn padawan.

Neo walks. Maybe some exercise will help?

Morons 1, Good Guys 0. Unbelievable. Now you have to even sanitize stories. PC-ness runs amuck. Notice the article doesn’t mention the judge’s political affiliation. You know what that means. While you’re at it, queue the banjos….

I am sick to death of this election already. Our primary is February 5. We will have to literally unplug the phones.

During the bout of crumminess this weekend, I rewatched Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. I’d seen it several times, but this time I was stuck at the similarities between the lies published by the Daily Prophet, the clueless Ministry of Magic being manipulated by a shadowy evil and our own media/political machine. Voldemort is definitely running the show. Speaking of media, the NYT gave Michelle Malkin credit for a quote. Trouble is, she didn’t say it. Fact-checking? What fact-checking? At least I try to make sure what I write/cite is true. But I’m just little ol’ me, not a giant international news organization rotting from within. Wait – maybe I am – oh man, it’s that birthday thing again.

Dang. Sigh. Huh…..?

Ohio State just scored their first touchdown. As much as I hate them, I hate LSU even more. Go Dawgs! (h/t Get The Picture)

Ohio State just scored a field goal. ((knowing snicker)) I’m not dead yet, I’m feeling better. ;-)

UPDATE: Dammit. Well, I guess the ESPN airbags are happy!
