I hate Mondays open thread


I just woke up. I have a doctor appointment this morning and I’m not supposed to eat until afterwards. I’m in a bad mood.

On the bright side, I’m not in jail like George Zimmerman.

How is your Monday going?

    LOL. I sent a couple of tweets on a similar theme:

    • DandyTiger says:

      I love how the Obama followers have no convictions. Shouldn’t Obama have rejected Keystone and his followers agree and want him to stick with it because of their convictions of why it was rejected in the first place? Doesn’t anything that happens for this country actually matter to them? If they’re really for the environment and against Keystone for legitimate reasons, shouldn’t they have a backbone and stick with that?

      Hahaha, silly question I know, of course they have no real political philosophy or convictions, they installed Obama.

    hope your checkup goes well

    just think tomorrow you can see venus transit the sun, will not happen again for over 100 years

    and the fighting in Wisconsin should be over by Wednesday

    #Thingamajig The word Obama was looking for was ‘thermostat.’ He was in a thermostat factory, surround by boxes emblazoned “thermostat.”

    • DandyTiger says:

      I tweeted about that. That story is very funny, esp. how there were boxes all around with Thermostat in big letters. That will be Obama’s “rosebud” if there is ever a movie of him in the future. 🙂

      • angienc says:

        That’s the thing that pissed me off about the Obama defenders on “thingamajig” — in the NYT, for example, they called it an “absent-minded professor” moment, but that assumes he knew the name of the part, how furnaces work, etc & just forgot it. I thought that was B.S., as he’s a self-absorbed moron who doesn’t care about something that is 5 feet in front of him unless it’s his own reflection. This bit of info confirms my thinking.

    Is the SCOTUS decision on Obamacare due out today?

    “I’m not in jail like George Zimmerman.”

    That’s the kind of thing that would happen to me. The good news is that you’re secretly rich and have a stash of cash you didn’t know about. The bad news is that you’re going to jail for not reporting it.

    Hope your doctor visit goes well. I have a lab appt every three months that I have to be fasting for. I HATE those mornings. Ugh.

    I have to hang around the house all day waiting for the city. We had to put a new pressure regulator on the water line in front, and can’t cover up the hole until the city comes to inspect it. They are supposed to come “sometime today”, so of course I have to wait around all day, since they can’t give you an actual time or even a window.

    Maybe I’ll bake something.

    • DandyTiger says:

      There’s only one thing worse than the cable company for appointments, government appointments.

    • Lulu says:

      I had one of those giant holes in the front yard waiting for the inspector. The postman fell into it. So help me God, I thought my husband was going to hurt himself laughing. I had to run outside and pull him out.

      • WMCB says:

        LMAO! Well, wonder will never cease – the inspector guy just called andd said he’ll be here in about an hour. So I only had to waste half a daay, not a whole one (if he shows up.)

        • WMCB says:

          I have a new keyboard/case for my iPad. It’s great, but the keys tend to make double letters, such as andd and daay above. I have to adjust my fingers – not used to it yet.

          A keypad with a drawl. 😀

    I’m working like a very unappetizing rodent in a running wheel today. I’d say working like a dog, but I don’t want to be eaten by the president.

    I’m about to head back into the classroom for the summer term. First class starts today in a little over an hour. I’m prepped and ready. Good luck with your appointment.

  10. Lulu says:

    Fasting tests are awful. Everyone in the doctor’s office is grumpy. I have a large coffee with lots of milk in an insulated cup waiting in the car to slurp down. Sometimes I sneak a bit before I go in. What? Is it going to show up in a blood test five minutes later? Thank goodness they don’t check for coffee breath.

    • WMCB says:

      Last time I said “Fuck it” and slurped down a big old latte an hour before my labs. My triglycerides were through the roof. I didn’t confess my sin, I’ll just let my doc think I did SO well to get them back down next time!

      😀

    • yttik says:

      LOL, my son had a double latte before his “fasting” test. They said no food and that’s not “food,” it’s coffee. (That’s what his mom has been saying for years, anyway.) It fouled up all the tests and he thought he was dying.

  12. Just wanted to drop in and say hi — and to remind California voters the primary is tomorrow. Vote and vote your principles.

    And, if you were planning on staying home simply because you are disappointed with the Presidential race, then I am also a write-in candidate.

    Vote for who you want, but if you want to know me better, visit my blog at http://jeremyhannon.com . I will try and answer any questions you may have as well..

    • myiq2xu says:

      I was planning on writing in Keith Judd. He’s a man of conviction. Several of them.

      • I like it! Unfortunately Keith Judd is not on the official write-in list in California. If the name is not one the write-in list for your party, the vote does not count and acts the same as if you did not vote for any candidate.

        • myiq2xu says:

          I’ll consider it. What is your position on marijauna legalization?

        • myiq2xu: Message was too deep for reply (and notification did not come through), but on Marijuana, I believe that decision really should be left to the states and is not something the federal government should be involved in.

          Besides the issue of state’s rights, and the countless amounts of money spent on attempted and futile enforcement, I do not see the great need of protecting society from that choice. It is more of an issue in some states than others and I understand many different viewpoints on the subject, but the pros/cons of the drug are better handled by the States and not at a federal level. (And the fact there are other uses for the crop besides drug use)

          I think it is also a good example of why States should be left to manage a lot of things: We are not one culture in this country, nor should we attempt to be. In some parts of the country marijuana is considered a horrible and morally repulsive thing. In some of these same areas, tobacco is commonly used and accepted. Meanwhile, in California, it is almost more socially acceptable to be smoking a joint than a cigarette

          We need to give power and control back to the States. For most things, having the power closer to the people ends up having a more efficient, more accountable, and more acceptable government..
