So he rushes in to tell you what he did today, but he can't think of what to say


Well our humble little town was blessed by a visit from our President yesterday. My hubby had lunch at the same restaurant W did, leaving about 30 minutes before he got there. S swears that W is sitting in the same seat he sat in.



I just have one, very simple question for the man, Why (WHY WHY WHY) are we in Iraq. It is a very simple question, and all I would like is a simple answer! ESPECIALLY now that we know that a Taliban-like terrorist group is gaining strength in Afghanistan and Pakistan...why are we trying to referee a Civil War in Iraq! It is like watching a basketball game, knowing your team is playing the wrong defence, and watching helplessly as the other team throws an alli oop for a back door slam!


So, anyway...back to my reality (or as John Mayer would say, "I'll just keep on waiting for the world to change".), pretty routine day yesterday. After his brush with the President, S got to go to the Tennessee/Alabama basketball game last night - which went into overtime and TN won! S, however is a Bama fan, so he was not quite as thrilled. So, I had the evening to myself to knit, read my Marie Claire and watch LOST!





Once again, I am the only person in America that enjoyed last night's episode of LOST. I am not sure what people want from the show...don't they realize that if we find out all the answers - the show will end, I do not want the show to end. Having spent a month is Thailand, and visiting the same beach as Jack did, I enjoyed his flashbacks to Thailand.




As for my Marie Claire - pretty good issue. I am not totally happy with the "revamping" they did last year. I think that they wanted to appear more mature - I think the magazine appears more - blah. BUT they still have the best content of any mag on the stand!




Getting back on the treadmill tonight - I am sure there will be whining tomorrow (it has been two full weeks since I ran, uhg). Off to find some non-chocolate baking recipes!

'It is like watching a basketball game, knowing your team is playing the wrong defence, and watching helplessly as the other team throws an alli oop for a back door slam'.

Beautifully put. That is exactly what it's like except there's another team caught in between. The everyday Iraqi people who didn't ask for Saddam, didn't ask for the West and just want the game to end.

Your vice president Cheney's in Sydney at the moment dodging protesters at every turn.

I'm with your husband on the Gilmore Girls. While I'm not a huge fan of incest, since they're just acting they really should go for it. Imaging the ratings boom.

As for LOST, sheeesh, how do the writer's weave this stuff together. It is incredible writing. They must have a big ol' white board.

There is only one person I dislike more than our President, that is our Vice President. i saw the news coverage on Cheney in Sydney and the protesters - I was glad to see it!
To further develop our basketball game I think that the refs should have a romote that detonates the ball, whenever they feel like it! The entire thing just sucks, and makes me so sad.
