Oh Shit, It’s Monday Already!

Monday morning seems to have snuck up on me so instead of a new post I only have the usual lame excuses.

I promise I’ll write a real post later this morning. For now, here’s an open thread.

dream big

About Myiq2xu - BA, JD, FJB

I was born and raised in a different country - America. I don't know what this place is.

    If “flopping” happened in the real world ….. lol ……

  2. elliesmom says:

    I hear ya. We had both grandkids for the weekend, and today I’m draggin’. So is poor Ellie.

    • Lulu says:

      I had “guests”. They eat a lot, require a lot of cooking, cleaning of kitchen, linen washing, etc and I am numb with fatigue. I’m getting too old for this shit. Although they were a very welcome diversion and crazy funny. My cat is still in hiding probably in a closet cowering after a nervous breakdown from the racket. I wish I could hide in a closet for a few days.

    Client (and also a friend) Alice Gilbert was featured on FOX news re: her professor (course was “The Obama Phenomenon”) acting like an assclown and threatening conservative students. Very proud of her πŸ™‚

    Another good piece by Victor David Hanson on Clinton fatigue…..


    • DandyTIger says:

      Sadly that’s pretty spot on. She could still walk through it all depending on who runs against her in the primaries and the general. She’s be better than a number of idiots out there. Will be interesting to watch. I’m still rooting for her to drag this out as long as possible and then pull out. Consolation prize would be for the Dems to picker her and then the Repubs surprise everyone and actually put up an electable candidate.

      • The Klown says:

        I dunno, the GOP seems determined to pick a no-hoper – either an establishment candidate the base won’t vote for or a really-far-right loon that will get destroyed in the general. The safe bet is an establishment candidate like Jeb of Christie.

        The media will keep trying to push a RINO like Huntsman that the GOP primary voters won’t touch.

        • elliesmom says:

          I don’t know about Christie, but I don’t think Jeb Bush has a snowball’s chance in hell of winning in the general. I think a Clinton/Bush contest would see a lot of people needing to wash their hair that day

          • Constance says:

            True but either Hillary or Jeb would be more competent than Cheney/Bush or Jarrett/Obama. Cheney ran the country to war because he was CEO of Halliburton from 1995 to 2000 and Halliburton was a war profiteer. Obama is embarrassed by the USA and considers himself the President of the Democrat party not the leader of all Americans. I think both Jeb and Hillary care about our country.

        • The Klown says:

          Who the hell is Jeb of Christie?

          Jeb OR Christie

          • Lulu says:

            I prefer Jeb of Christie. Jeb invades and conquers NJ. Sounds like something from GOT. Perry can invade Nuevo Leon and he will be Perry of Texico the super-state and oil company.

    So I took the click bait at Hot Air to this article at Slate: http://www.slate.com/articles/double_x/doublex/2014/07/pre_pregnancy_contract_signing_on_the_dotted_line_to_avoid_household_conflict.html
    The chick wants a pre-pregnancy agreement with her husband so she won’t ending up hating him after a baby arrives. I don’t want to register at Slate to leave her reply so I’ll reply here:
    “Honey, it’s too late. You already hate your husband. If he wants a child, you obviously don’t. Let him go now so he can find someone who does.”

  7. Monster from the Id says:

    14,000 draft registration notices were sent recently to men born in the 1890s.


    “Maybe you can be one of us. The Few. The Proud. The ZOMBIE MARINES.” πŸ˜†

    • DandyTIger says:

      Interesting that they would have a selective service system operating at all. Test run for something in the future perhaps?

      • 49erDweet says:

        Testing out a new auto-voter-registration program.

      • Monster from the Id says:

        I had to register way back in 1981. The “gummint” has been registering us for years, but any President who activates the draft for anything short of a direct, undeniable attack on the USA would hand the White House to the other wing of the Property Party in the next election–which is why I do not expect it ever to be activated.

        • DeniseVB says:

          My son had to show proof he was registered when applying for student loans in the early 90’s. Never could figure out why. It was no biggie since there hasn’t been a draft since Viet Nam.

          • leslie says:

            Same here. And when there was no proof of registration, they refused his application. It was at that time I contacted my congress person and said that if they didn’t ask for my daughter’s registration, it was gender discrimination to ask for my son’s. I said it would be a shame to make this a public issue. My son had his application approved.

          • leslie says:

            He hadn’t registered because I thought the amnesty for Vietnam draft refusers also eliminated mandatory selective service registration and I told him not to register. (It was truly my error, not his.)

      Oh my!!! 😯

    I finally managed to put together 7 hours of sleep last night , not all at once but still a total of 7 , and I no longer feel like a walking zombie . Add to that a nice shower , no belly pain , and getting rid of my old tv and having the new one hooked up ; this particular Monday isn’t too horrible , so far . Still Monday tho.

  10. 49erDweet says:

    My battle continues today with ATT. For weeks they sell me 18 mbps internet but deliver less than 5 and can’t figure out why I’m unhappy. It’s cause I’m unreasonable. Withholding payment, now. Will probably end up in jail.

    • DeniseVB says:

      Is Verizon Fios available in your area? We love it.

    • leslie says:

      DT, I’ll bake you some cookies and include a key to the lockup! πŸ˜‰

    • votermom says:

      Withholding payment, now. Will probably end up in jail.

      Save up the withheld payments for bail money.
      Is it possible to cancel? I’m not sure about ATT, but with Verizon & Comcast if you cancel they send you to the retention dept which usually bends over backwards to keep you.

      • 49erDweet says:

        I thought they said DETENTION department.

        • swanspirit says:

          I am a permanent fixture of the retention dept . at MediaCON. Goddess they suck at everything . I already unbundled my phone . I am seriously going to play with my new TV now so I can get rid of cable and just stream everything I want to watch from the net with Hulu Plus and Netflix or some combination of both . I am not going to pay their exorbitant fees for channels I never watch!

          • mothy67 says:

            Soon you will be paying more for streaming because net neutrality is a gone. Comcast struck a deal with Netfix but I don’t know about the others. Verizon may come around as the partnership with redbox was a flop.

      • lildoggy4u says:

        Yes, I just called ATT recently telling them to disconnect everything. I guess I got the retention as they halved my bill . I asked for how long and they said forever. I think ATT must be losing customers right and left. I usually don’t complain but sometimes it gets results and money saved makes me happy.

    Apparently this is gonna be another one of those days I have been having lately.

  14. Lulu says:

    Prezzy wants to hang with the intelligentsia. Harvard is so dull. Palm Springs blah. Martha’s Vineyard wet. He wants Rome, Paris, London, Geneva and smart people who are required to sit at the table until he leaves because of diplomatic protocol.

    • The Klown says:

      He wants to rub elbows with people who are smart enough to appreciate his superior intellect.

      • Lulu says:

        One of the early articles about this boob said the ambassador had to tell these “guests” that they couldn’t leave the table until Obama did. The campaign donor ambassador called it protocol but everyone that attended came to find out that it was “captive audience”.

        • DeniseVB says:

          Sounds like these campaign rallys set up all over the country disquised as “Official Speeches”. All are supporters who cheer when he mocks Repbulicans. Good PR, the people just LOVE him screeches the media.

    • elliesmom says:

      Don’t get my daughter started on this one. And all she gets is “stink-eye”. I let the 3 year old grandkid play in my yard only supervised by a big white fluffy dog. Of course, the yard has a 6 ft fence with locked gates, and anything like yard equipment is in a locked shed. She rides her tricycle on my walks and plays with the dog in the grass. My daughter told one of her friends how much my granddaughter loves to play in the yard with Ellie, and her friend said that I am an irresponsible babysitter. Maybe I am. but Ellie isn’t. No one would get within 10 feet of this child.

    • DandyTIger says:

      That’s fucking insane. Talk about nanny state.

    • Erin says:

      OMG. My parents and the entire adult population of my neighborhood growing up would have been arrested. We were free range kids. We went outside and played unsupervised all the time. During the summer we’d leave the house in the morning to go to the beach and hang out at the community building only going home at dinner time. I feel sorry for today’s children.

      • lildoggy4u says:

        Me too. Damn, both of my parents would’ve been arrested if anybody had seen my batcave in the middle of the woods. No parents were ever allowed or even knew exactly where it was. Once my father did find it and also he found a snake we had living in there with us. We never went back after seeing the snake.

      • Constance says:

        Same here. My Mom checked to see that we’d done our chores then put us outside after breakfast and locked the door. We had to be home when the street lights came on, 5 mins late and you lost your privileges and got more chores. We had to knock on the door to use the bathroom but the boys usually just went outside. I didn’t realize we were neglected, I though we were having fun hanging out.

      That’s the 10% showing up again.

    • angienc says:

      I un-followed this moron way back when I first got on twitter — right after the Obamacare SCOTUS decision was handed down he was making what I can only describe as Charlie Manson-type *threats* on the Chief Justice’s life (i.e., how *easy* it would be for *somebody* to “take Roberts out” by doing x, y, z).

      • Jadzia says:

        Hi, Angie, I hope you see this! This is wildly off-topic, but I was wondering whether you might have any suggestions for websites or English-language guidebooks for Greece and specifically, Athens. My 8-year-old is a freak for Greek mythology and I am hoping to take him to Athens this fall, but I know little about it except for how to get there by land. If you want to email me, just click through to my blog that I am totally going to update soon, click on biography, put a period between my first and last name, and add gmail. THANK YOU!!!

    More volunteer cherry tomatoes for din-din tonight. In May left a barely dripping hose over the raked bed of last year’s crop, and PRESTO! Instant tomatoes. Two bushes showing fruit. It’s the soil.

    Anyone remember the FEMA camp predictions a few years ago? Apparently, they were DHS camps and the Obama youth are from South America.
