I'm Back?

For those two, or maybe three, of you who still check into my blog – I offer my apologies for sucking so bad lately.

It seems just like yesterday that I started blogging, and just as recently that I scaled way back on blogging. It’s not that I don’t like writing, because I really fucking do; it’s because my life seems so busy lately. Some of it’s valid “life stuff,” but other of it is just plain old “me time.” I’ve been dabbling in photography, after buying myself around $3K worth of digital SLR. I’ve also been playing myself and assload of Xbox – primarily Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 and Tiger Woods Golf (I keep waiting for the man-slut upgrade to download.).

Let’s see…what else have I been doing….Gardening. I started my vegetable garden a couple of weeks ago. It’s got lettuce, celery, bush beans, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, spinach, tomatoes, herbs, onions, and some other stuff I can’t recall right now. I don’t think the lettuce is gonna come in (got flooded by a LOT of rain the last couple of days), so I think I might throw some random shit in there like eggplant, etc.

The other day I saw something on the CNN web site that talked about some dil-weed governors declaring April Confederate Heritage Month. Really? Are we really having this fucking discussion in two-thousand-fucking-ten? It bothered me just enough to dedicate the preceding paragraph to it.

And politics….My Dumbasses in Government blog has been notably quiet, but not because there’s a shortage of dumbass politicians – only laziness on my part. I’m not sure what all the hoopla is on the Right about the current administration – but it kinda bothers me that civility in our society has been tossed right out the fucking window.

Today is a day off. Sorta. I have a work picnic to go to. The options were – work or do the picnic…so I’m doing the picnic. Kind of a no-brainer at this point in my life. I’m just not that interested in killing myself at work any more. I work my ass off when there, but when there’s an out, I’m there; and when I’m not at work, I don’t think about it.

Yesterday, while just nodding off in front of the television, I looked through blurriness and noticed one of the cats sitting on a plant in a pot on the coffee table. I thought, That’s weird. Why would Kitty be sitting on the plant? As my eyes focuses I noticed the urine pooling up on the glass top of the table. “Hey, you dick! Get off of there!!!” Shelley noticed it at the same time. Kitty pinched it off and scampered off. Fortunately none of it got on the carpet. It wasn’t fun to clean up, but not horrible like a male cat’s piss would’ve been. What a weird fucking experience.

Anyhoo…I’m outta here fer now….

That my why I don't own cats.

However, it is good to see you back and yeah, me too. Life has been kicking me in the teeth as well.

At least, you get to travel.....

Wow, you came back with a bang! Nice to see your ramblings again. I guess I need to do more stuff in my life besides blogs, but it's not like I've been pouring all my time and energy into my blogs, either. Hmm.

I too am disturbed by all this wing-nut right/tea party bullshit that's been going on around here. I notice that a lot of those people hearken back to the Reagan days as some sort of golden age. They don't seem to say anything about the last Republican president. I guess even they can tell an idiot when they see one, but that doesn't stop them from calling Obama all kinds of horrible names. I'm all for free speech, but come on! Liberals, Democrats, etc. didn't resort to this sort of incivility in pulblic discourse during the dark Bush/Cheney years (although some of us did in our blogs).

Joker: Cat's ain't so bad...I've never had that kind of problem before...Think it's the new cat littler she may not like. Thanks for the welcome.

Rimpy: Don't get your hopes up just yet....It's only two posts in a row ;-) The Teabaggers really baffle me. They whine about taxes, yet taxes haven't been raised. I could go on and on about this stuff....but....I'll spare you :-)

I just find that when I sit down with the computer, I do just about anything but open a blog window. I don't seem to have much that I feel is "blog worthy" these days.

On the TV?!?! Now that's bizarre!

TC: I'm with you on the blog-worth stuff, or lack thereof. Wasn't the TV - She did it on plant. She might've been electrocuted if she'd done it on a plant.... ;-)
