Saturday Afternoon Open Thread


There’s no baseball today! I’m feenin’ like a crackhead for some baseball! Two best-of-seven series start tomorrow. The winners play for all the marbles.

I’m watching something called Flea Market Flip. I’d change it but I can’t reach the remote.

What are you doing today?

    LOL, I wore my NYY cap to the zoo today and some young man approached me with “thanks for ruining my day out with my family”. What? What? So I was inspired to blog:

    Here’s it’s just a dreary rainy day perfect for the marathon of the walking dead that’s on amc, so that’s been on all day today. I can’t wait for the season premiere tomorrow!

  6. My half marathon race that’s been on my bucket list all through my chemo is next week and I ran 12 miles this morning. I’m really slow, but hey—I’m 60 what the heck. I just want to enjoy the race and celebrate being alive after 32 chemos!!

    the office of the president has a nice residence at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave in DC and a nice weekend get away at Camp David. So why are we paying for backtrack to stay at a resort in Virgina to practice lying????

    women could decide election. I do hope they are smart enough to vote for the party that respects their mind as well as their body

    I went to the National Apple Harvest festival in Arendtsville, PA. This is Adams County, PA, a historically very conservative region of the state, just a hop skip & jump to Gettysburg. I saw more Obama/Biden yard signs than Romney/Ryan. This seems curious to me. I wouldn’t think of this very rural area as a place where Obama would be particularly popular. I also noticed that most of the Obama signs were near the side of the road, so in some ways it was unclear as to whether they were actually put out by the property owners or just put out by campaign workers.

    If I were still living in Philly, this wouldn’t seem strange at all, but in South Central PA, it seems very weird. Maybe the Obama people are trying to psych out the Romney voters, although it’s still a weird place to do it. Seeing some Obama signs in York, but it’s more of an even mix between Obama and Romney. Is it possible that Romney supporters are just scared of vandalism or controversy. I think that my next door neighbors used to put up Republican yard signs all the time, but they don’t have any this year. And I know they haven’t changed their politics.

    What’s going on? Anybody else noticing unusual political behavior?

      If they’re all lined up by the side of the road, it’s probably staged. Probably to advertise to people going to this harvest festival, I take it that’s a big event there?

    Hillary is pissing me the fuck off. And yes, I know that Obama likely “made her do it.”. Doesn’t matter. This is WRONG. WTF is the point of Congress putting restrictions on aid, if the Exec branch can just say FU and do whatever they want?

    • yttik says:

      Bush did the same thing a half dozen times or so. Somewhere I’ve probably got a promise from Candidate Obama to never waive restrictions on aid.

      • yttik says:

        Ah, yes, President Obama is just like a really bad rerun! He cosponsored the child soldier legislation in 2008 as a Senator and then has repeatedly waived the legislation as President, allowing countries with child soldiers to have aid.

        He’s waived the restriction on aid to Palestine and Egypt, several times, too.

  11. melisshka says:

    Yeah, it’s huge. Lots of people come up from Maryland and other places in PA. I just think there’s some yard sign weirdness around here that I hadn’t noticed other years. But things are much more hostile lately, so I think some people just want to keep their heads down and their mouths shut until election day. That’s sort of my philosophy right now. 🙂

    Trying to figure out which would cause the least harm to CA but still help daughter’s classroom woes in broke district in Monterey County, prop 38 or 30? Both make me shudder but she’s been told her job’s on the line. Any thoughts?

  13. I’m hanging at Starbucks with our new laptop. We wouldn’t have been able to afford one, but Walmart suddenly dropped the price on several models to below $300 and we noticed within 12 hours. Good thing, too. They were already almost sold out. Our new Gateway is so awesome!

    I know! She’s getting all fancy on us.I’m drinking out of a canning jar!

    Of course it is a latte made with freshly ground free trade organic beans sustainably roasted a few miles from my house and organic steamed milk from a free range grass fed cow, raised by a farmer who meditates three times day so the methane from his cows won’t impact global warming. I’m not totally low class…..

    considering the last unemployment numbers did not include California this might be even worse
