Where've I been? Mostly in the car. The AC in the car works way better than the AC in the house. So I've mostly been in the car. It's been 100-ish for several days now. AccuWeather says the "Real Feel" has been around 106 and even up to 114 once. Nasty. So I've mostly been in the car. And the poking-through-the-window AC unit at home is acting up. It isn't draining properly. After about 48 hours of use, there's enough condensation inside to hit the fan. Yes, the ________ is hitting the fan and spraying around the room. So I've mostly been in the car. All I can do is yank the AC, take out the filter, hold the whole thing upside down and shake the water out - like a baby that won't be quiet. (Kidding! Sheesh! You people are so sensitive!) Repeat as necessary, most likely in a day or two.
So I've mostly been in the car.
I don't have internet access in the car. Mostly because I don't have WiFi. I like cables. I like wires. When ya encounter a total flaming moron who desperately needs to be strangled, CAT-5e cable works a lot better than, um, air. So wired internet only for this guy. Also, I don't have a laptop. I suppose I could, you know, take my desktop PC out to the car and run some of that yummy CAT-5e cable out to it, but it is a HUNDRED FREAKIN' DEGREES outside! Like I'm gonna go through all that exertion just to satisfy you people! Yoish, y'all can be soooo demanding!
Tomorrow is supposed to drop back down into the 80s. Maybe I'll be in a better mood then.
Just thinking about current events puts me in a better mood, actually. The way the campaign has turned is awesome. It is even more awesome than a red-white-n-blue blown '41 Willys sideways on fire driven by a hot chick in a bikini running over zombie Mao and zombie Stalin kissing at a kiss-in in front of a Dik-fil-A while Hendrix plays the National Anthem and the rhythm section is the 30mm cannon on an A-10.
OK, maybe not that awesome. But at least this awesome:
Sorry, Buck. Couldn't find any clips of the Thunderbirds doing similar.
Let's face it: Paul Ryan is basically Ted Nugent minus the pottymouth and a couple pounds of hair. The libs don't know what to do about him. Nancy Pelosi is getting visits from the Ghosts of Feminists Past. Biden makes this chick look like the valedictorian of Smartville High, and Palin basically dares barry to give Joey the boot. O'Bumble's campaign co-chair from '08 is now working for Romney. Romney has TONS of general-election campaign cash he can't spend until he's officially nominated at the Convention. At which time the BARRAGE of ads will hit, and the get-out-the-vote efforts will take off. The slaughter will be... wait. "Epic" is so painfully overused these days. The slaughter will be "whatever word arises to take the place of the overused 'epic'." To paraphrase Bull Halsey: "The Democrat language will only be spoken in the narrow confines of a university or two."
The Cold Stone Creamery "Store of the Quarter" for the Mountain West Region is store #20145 in American Fork, Utah. I would know, because I just made the award. In my line of work, I get all the big news scoops. Notice, that it wasn't store #666 in Commie Flats, Connecticut. See? The tide is indeed turning our way!!1!
Snooping the online ed of the local paper, and I get a pop-up "You have viewed 15 articles of premium content in the last 15 days. To continue reading, you'll need to subscribe" yadda yadda. Premium content? AP wire stories printed word-for-word, plus an occasional local-interest blurb about "Bertha's begonia garden" or somesuch? That counts as premium content? Subscribe to that? No. But I will go delete your stupid cookie, which resets me back to zero "premium" views. And to think I've actually linked to these losers...
