I opened my big mouth..

I worry in my previous post about a Demo going down and look what happens within hours. A quote on the situation from EV with a nice quip at the end.
Sen. Tim Johnson (D-SD) fell ill yesterday with stroke-like symptoms and
was taken to George Washington University Hospital where he was operated on. His
sudden illness is not only a medical emergency, but also a political emergency.
If he is in danger of dying, he will no doubt be hooked up to life-sustaining
medical equipment, in which case a video tape of him could be made and send to
Dr. Bill Frist for a diagnosis. Frist, a former heart surgeon and former
senator, has extensive experience in telling whether people are alive or dead by viewing videotapes of them.

Maybe if I worry about money falling out of the sky...

Can you think of anything in the last five years you think Congress should be proud of?

I caught Lincoln Chafee on daily show reruns last night trying to answer this question. I watched the whole episode on the internet and I really don’t understand why he stayed with the republicans . He seemed like a reasonable guy but a RINO is still a republican and that meant status quo in terms of leadership. Who knows? Right now one of those old demo bastards in a red state might die and we might be screwed anyway. In all fairness to Lincoln’s resounding lack of response, the enormous screwups make anything positive seem insignificant and, consequently, forgettable.

I went to a sports bar to meet the brothers’ Zippin and had Two Cokes while I was watching the first half of the Jets game on sunday. I try to do this to avoid getting saused on a worknight. While I recognize that I look like a punk in front of the frat crowd at the bar I am to old to care anymore. Anyway, I finished my burger and left the bar around 6. I couldn’t fall asleep until one. My heart was racing insanely. I always wondered why, as a teenager, I had such trouble falling asleep. I am starting to think it has something to do with all the soda I drank. It used to be at least a can a night and sometimes as much as a liter.

Oh and yes the Jets looked horrible.

When my hair grows out....

I pretty much am keeping my hair really short right now. I use ed's beard trimmer and put it on 3/8" of an inch every couple weeks. I never used to get it cut this short because I was afraid of being called a weird, a skinhead, or exposing the childhood scar on the top of my head. I guess I was called weird anyway so i guess i was worried about being called more weird.

So now I know I am weird, nobody thinks I am a skinhead, and the scar gives me character. Additionally, the hair doesn't freeze or get messed up when I wear a hat-- which is every day. It also a lot cheaper than getting 40 dollar haircuts every 6 weeks

The photos above show the potential dynamics of future long hair phase. Notice the two unique looks with the same length hair. The pictures are from my 1992 european vacation with Grandma. I may even start wearing the clothing style too.

Axles of Evill

I had a dream last night that I was in a new bike shop which opened up around the corner from me. The name of the shop was thus. This has gotten me thinking that Axis's of Evill would probably work just as well.

Axes of Evill -- A tool shops shop in the east village. I dont think they would sell much too firefighters.

Exes of Evill -- People I have dated who are known to frequent the east village. Probably the most fitting.

I think this all came to my mind because on the job on thursday, I thought my boss said a competitor was opening a new firm called Axis of Evil. I said out loud that that sounded like a horrible idea. Apparently he said something completely different like Cantor Seinuk Associates. We ended up having a meeting at the top of the rock with the client.

I want to thank Marietta for the advice about the toys. However, I think that if I am not going to get them anything essentially new york than I might as well wait until I get to the mall in MN I have a week before x-mas when I am out there. Unfortunately, there is no toys R us in the mall.

Bush Clinton Bush Clinton

It is rather uninspiring prospect. It doesn’t really seem like a level playing field. Are all the most electable people really related to each other? I am tired of rooting for people mostly because the alternative is some super evil person. Stewart/Colbert '08?

A couple of nice shots from the wedding. Can you tell which one I am? Somehow my pants wrinkle the quickest.

For your consideration was horrible. It is a shame because the other guest/levy films have been so good.

What type of gifts do you get for a 5, 2, and 0 Year old who live in Minneapolis?
