Why I'm not on Twitter

If I were on Twitter, I'd end up just posting a bunch of boring garbage that nobody would want to read.  What's the point of that? Wouldn't you rather I just condense it all into one glorious blogpost?  I know I would!

You complaints have been noted, and will be ignored in the order in which they were received...

--------

The Polish people have endured much suffering, being caught between the Hammer of the Red Army and the Anvil of Nazi Germany.  Then barry has to go rub salt in it by saying "Polish death camps" as though it was all some Pole's idea to go slaughter millions of people.  Alright, it's not like this mouthfart happened while on a golf outing.  It happened during a ceremony to honor Jan Karski, a genuine hero who, among other things, risked life and limb to spread the word of German atrocities happening in Poland.  Have I mentioned that I can't stand this earwig we have for a pResident?

-----------------

Turns out (Iranian-born) Valerie Jarrett is our "de facto" president, and the one behind a lot of this administration's backfires.  I suppose I should find it somewhat comforting that our pResident might not be the total chowderhead he appears to be, and that another is actually at fault.  But I, um, am not much comforted by any of these revelations.

----------------

Sickness has descended on all the House of innominatus.  Were it not the peak of the Busy Season, I'd be penning this drivel from home, curled up in multiple blankets.  But it IS the peak of the Busy Season, so I'm penning this drivel from work.  Dedicated, is that one.  Dunno if I we should bring my our bugs to church tonight, though.  OK, maybe not so much.

-----------------

So the "plan" was brother-in-law would live with us for a while (end of the year-ish) and chip in on the household bills.  This "plan" was part of what prompted me to quit the early AM grunt job.  Yesterday I learned that BiL is moving out in a few days.  Hmmm.  To toil, or not to toil? That is the question!  Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer the slings and arrows of groveling for my old job back, or to live like a pauper and perchance to, um, something-or-other.

---------------

Part of the "Busy Season" involves a TON of award engraving for stuff like "Graduate Anthropolgy Student of the Year" kind of junk.  I take a bit of comfort in knowing that, however bad my situation may be, at least I am not a Graduate Anthropology Student.

  1. Actually, I initially majored in anthropology. But about two years in, I looked around and realized that everybody with an anthro degree was waiting tables. I could do that without a degree, so I moved to hard science.

    1. I find a lot of anthro material is interesting. But, yeah, their are too many holders of anthro degrees than there is demand for anthropologists.

  2. Inno, Hope it all gets better for you, soon.
    Yep, the big O, stepped in it again. Yes, he is a "Chowderhead." Romney just picked up the Polish vote.

    1. Thanks, Scooney. Just about got this bug beat.

  3. When in doubt grovel for your old job back. It always worked for me. And it allows me to buy luxuries like bread!

    Get better soon (or give your cold to anyone at work who annoys you.)

    Is there an ally that our beloved Dear Leader hasn't offended? The Poles must be thinking "What took this clown so long to come around to pissing us off?"

      I am completely surrounded by people who annoy me. If I only had the time to sneeze in the face of each of them...

  4. Well of course the Polish vote goes to Romney. They moved here to get some food. Obama is taking that dream away from them.

  5. If you ask me, the 'Polish death camps' remark was not a gaffe. There were quite a few Nazi concentration camps in Poland, to include Treblinka, Belzec and Sobibor, to name some of the most nefarious of many.

    Accordingly, I would call these death camps in Poland 'Polish death camps' and would not assume that they were run by Poles. Not that Obama doesn't deserve any negative press, just not this time. That's just me being a technical nit picking jerk.

    1. The Poles have been trying to dissuade people from using that phrase. At an event to honor a Polish hero, I'd expect Mr. Smart Diplomacy to honor the Poles' preferences.

  6. NAZI death camp would've been a better choice, Big O.

  7. I hope the House of Inno is soon debugged.

    BHO insults me every time he wakes up in the morning and is still in office.

    Maybe you could find a different grunt job to grovel for? (Egad -- I just ended a sentence with a preposition!)

    1. Right there is why I write a lot of my junk like a script - conversational English allows a person to dangle a prep or to boldly split an infinitive and it usually goes unnoticed.

  8. Re BiL: New plan. 1. Monkey wrench behind the ear. 2. Harvest organs. 3. Take wife to Hawaii.

  9. I'm nearly tempted by Twitter. Having run the Twitter page for Doug Urbanski while his radio show was on the air, I rather enjoyed the challenge of condensing a clever witticism down to 140 characters without letting it lose its punch.

    Facebook, on the other hand, is still the syphilis of internet software. No redeeming characteristics whatsoever.

  10. I heard about his Polish death camp idiocy. It's just one more bit of idiocy that he gets away with that Bush would have been mocked and derided for.

Family-friendly phrasing heartily encouraged.
