Well….just got back from riding the bike (no skipping for the third day in a row!) and I thought I’d do the last one for the month. I’m sure you’ve heard by now about the White House correspondents dinner and the roasting of the trump “administration” by the comedian Michelle Wolf…and the outrage, outrage, I tell you, about her calling out Sarah Sanders for lying to us every day from the podium in the WH. Now these snowflakes can’t take being told the truth? I wonder if truth to them is like Kryptonite…that if they get too close to it it will kill them? I had the thought the other day about how they can keep doing it day in and day out…I’m not sure about you but if I lied as much as she does it would corrode my well being but it appears like she and the other lying liars in this administration thrive on the lies, and the media does, too…after all, they keep letting them get away with it…for just once, I’d like to see one of the WH correspondents just get up and leave when she lies…maybe the rest of them would follow…we can only hope…geez…
Well….running a little early today and I feel quite a bit better…not sure why I felt so crappy yesterday but I think it was from not eating enough…slept okay last night and I am waiting for the coffee to work and I hope that’s soon since I have a bunch of stuff to do this morning…need to wash the car before I work out and ride the bike since it is covered in dust from the lot cleaning….didn’t get much done yesterday and today will be the same with pool this aft but that’s okay….I really don’t have a lot to do around here…the bike is still confusing me…two days now without a skip and I took all of the adjustment back out…will have to think about that a bit but I’ll take it…the weather is going to be gorgeous the next few days with our first 80 degree day this year and I can’t wait to air this place out….it will probably make my allergies worse but I can live with that…more later….
Well…almost forgot to come here for this one with the F1 race just getting ready to start….slept okay last night but feel pretty crappy today…not really crappy but just slow…and I am going to ease into the day with coffee…..and more coffee….my back has been sore for a day now and I hope I can figure out how to crack it today….I may have to take a day off the bike soon to let my legs heal up some since they have been really sore the past few days….didn’t get a lot done yesterday and today looks the same…just can’t get motivated to do much lately…..the bike is still confusing me with the skipping and the adjustments not doing much…it started with the start of the ride yesterday but then stopped after I adjusted it but then I took the entire adjustment out and it still didn’t skip…weird….not much to do today…just going to veg out the morning and have more coffee….more later….
Well….with the good news that the NRA is getting it’s records ready for prosecutors who are looking at the conspiracy between Russia and the NRA to funnel Russian money to repub candidates, there was another little noted story about a new study that kills one of the NRA’s talking points that open carry and their more guns everywhere makes us safer and lowers the crime rate. Just one little problem with that…it doesn’t…in fact right to carry laws actually increase the crime rates where they are passed…the study found that in the ten years after these idiotic laws are passed, the incidents of violent crime will be 13 to 15% higher than if they stayed sane and didn’t pass these laws. So, the next time this talking point comes up, we all should call bullshit on it…more guns mean more crime…period. Geez….
Well….I think I’m about on time today with soccer just starting…and I slept okay last night but feel so slow today that this one is going to be a struggle…..still feel a little depressed and I’m not sure how long that will last….hope it’s not too much longer since I don’t like it much….going to have to wait for quite a while to get out on the bike today with it being in the low 30′s right now and the warm up is going to be slow…will probably have to wait until the aft….don’t have a lot to do today but cook…going to try a new set of spices for the veggies today since I am bored with the same old same old…and I just got some oregano that I have been out of for some time….not much to do today….just going to watch some soccer and have some coffee right now….and try to feel better….more later….
Well…have been sitting here for a while trying to come up with a pertinent topic today and nothing is grabbing me yet so I thought I’d just do one on anything that pops into my head…started to have problems with the bike again today out of nowhere…had two days of not one skip and then it just started again today…and this time I hadn’t done anything to it…no adjustments at all…tried the same adjustment again and it seems to have helped since it didn’t skip at all when I took it out to go to the bank and get my powerball tickets for tomorrow…it was a little strange going to the atm on the bike…normally when I’m in the car, I have to stretch because the car is so low…but, on the bike I had to stoop to be able to have the buttons line up with the screen….but, it still worked so that was cool….might be going out to have a couple with T later if her sched allows it…that would be a good start to the weekend….even though every day is like a weekend to me now….and it is warm enough to put the top down over and back…..not as depressed now as when yesterday started…hope it continues….
Well…have been sitting here staring at the screen trying to figure out how to start this one….it should be pretty easy after doing more than 6,000 of these but it’s not…I did sleep okay last night but have had this malaise for the past few days that I think may be depression again and I am not looking forward to that…I did get a double in on the bike yesterday and I was planning on trying that again today but my left leg is just too sore for that…didn’t get anything else done yesterday but I am going to try to clean a little today since I tracked mud in on the new shoes and it is all over the carpet….I need to get out sometime to look for some new shoes with the old ones worn out…but not until next week…just don’t feel like doing that right now….more later….
Well…it has been a strange day so far and I can’t shake the feeling that it is Friday…and I can’t shake the feeling that we are only inches from the idiot boy trump doing his final meltdown….that was really, really evident today with his call in to his propaganda channel, fox news, and the consensus of people who have seen it is that he is “unhinged”….and even the folks on fox cut him off when they understood that he was getting into shaky legal territory with his meandering rant. That was confirmed when the US attorney that is working on the Cohen case filed a motion less than two hours later saying that since idiot boy said that Cohen only did a “tiny, tiny little fraction” of trump’s legal work, they should expedite the review of documents seized in the raid of Cohen’s home and offices…and that the documents are not likely to be protected by attorney-client privilege. That wasn’t the only thing the moron in chief said…he also confirmed he lied when he said he knew nothing about the Stormy Daniels hush money by saying that Cohen represented him when dealing with Daniels. I can see Daniel’s attorney just grinning since the idiot boy just can’t keep his mouth shut….I say keep it up, moron, prison is getting ever closer….impeach…
Well…kind of on time for a Thursday and that might get the day started right….slept okay last night but feel a little worn out today so I’m going to ease into the day until the coffee starts to work…I’m not sure what is going on but the idiot people on the road this morning have me shaking my head…running stop signs and almost backing into me in the lot as I was leaving for the grocery run…but, I survived it with no damage so I guess I shouldn’t bitch too much….I did have to clean up a little around here yesterday with the guys coming to do the furnace service today….just stuff that I needed to do but couldn’t get motivated to do….had a good ride yesterday but it was a little cold when I went out…and I’ll have to wait to get out today with the temp in the 30′s….not much to do today…just going to take it easy until the coffee works then I may clean a little more…who knows?
Well….I probably shouldn’t be surprised that another repub just stood up and said that he won’t listen to anyone unless they give him cash…but damn, to come out and admit you have committed crimes throughout your political career seems to be a wee bit too much. That’s exactly what Mick Mulvaney did yesterday when he stood up in front of 1200 bankers and said this: “if you’re a lobbyist who never gave us money, I didn’t talk to you. If you’re a lobbyist who gave us money, I might talk to you.” So, Mulvaney is telling lobbyists or anyone else that wants to talk to him to pay him a bribe first or no dice….and this tells us all that he doesn’t give a damn about the people he works for, you and me, but just people who will line his pockets but doesn’t stop there…he also tells the bankers that they need to pay other repubs, too, and thinks it is “a fundamental underpinning of representative democracy” to pay-to-play and only people with money should have any say in the government. You know how I feel about this sickening revelation of how the repubs think…and, we can end this crap of government for the rich if we just vote in November….impeach…
