I have nothing intelligent to say today. I think my brain is in combination overload, due to the stress of moving and buying a house and pre-vacation floaty-ness. That basically means I am useless at work. I cannot concentrate! Plus, I am still in a little funk from the Texas loss to OU this weekend. We were SOOO close! How could we slip up in the 4th quarter?? We had held them back the whole game. All we needed was ONE touchdown. Very sad.
Oh and then there was the debate. I watched it with a nice mix of Democrats, Republicans, and me as a left-leaning independent. I thought it was a terrible debate. So uncontrolled. And neither of them said anything new or of any real substance. Do they not get it? We need to hear your PLAN. Not “I have a plan,” but what the plan is. Charlie called them out once and said neither of them had explained their plan to cut the deficit (because now BOTH of them plan to cut the deficit–little late Bushy). But then, when given the chance to go back and do so, neither of them did. I am just so disappointed with our leadership. The people who truly should be running the country are smart enough to want nothing to do with it. It takes such a special breed of person to want to lead the free world. You have to have an ego like a battering ram and be more power hungry than Hummer H2.
And as if there wasn’t enough reason already to be for stem cell research, Christopher Reeves died this weekend from a bed sore. A bed sore. How sad is that? Perhaps if stem cell research had found a cure for him, his untimely death could have been avoided. Why is it always the kindest people who are taken first?
As for that vacation I mentioned earlier, I am going to San Francisco this weekend! Thursday through Sunday! YAY! I have never been so if anyone has any suggestions, shout ’em out! And check this out, JG won the trip through work. It was a leadership award. So the airfare is paid for and we get $2400 to spend in 4 days!! And we have to spend it! So we are planning on renting a fancy car! BMW convertible maybe. Plus we get to eat fancy dinners and just basically spurge! Ahhh! Fun!!
