February 15th

Well…that was a little interesting…woke up at 4:45 again this morning but decided to go back to bed to just lie there for a while and did fall back to sleep…even had a dream that was really weird and didn’t get up until 6:24 and that is so unusual that I had to say something about it…had another night of flipping and flopping all night so I don’t feel refreshed at all even with the late arising…or it could be the cold I’ve had all week that I can still feel…who knows? all I do know is that I’ve been up for 35 minutes and I feel exhausted already….so maybe I’ll take it easy again today…after I work out and ride the bike, that is…I do have to go out and see how badly frozen the car is after it rained last evening and then froze again last night…the locks have been working for the past two days but we’ll see this morning…I may go out to get some more of the fresh mozzarella that I picked up earlier in the week…used some of it to make a homemade pizza yesterday and it was really good and at 3 bucks for two pounds it is a steal…and it freezes okay so I can store it for a while….not much to do today…just the normal stuff and I am going to try to clean a little but that’s about it…need more coffee and the news right now…more later….

trump’s just a damn loser…

Well…if the long, long record of the idiot trump in business wasn’t enough to show it, this latest defeat on “wall” funding along with the decision of the TVA to close two more coal-fired generating plants, that trump went out of his way to try to save, there is no conclusion to be drawn other than trump is just a damn loser and has been his entire life. Let’s not forget his 6 (or more) bankruptcies, either, and the only way that he “won” the election was by cheating with the Russians….something that is becoming clearer every day as the Mueller investigation churns along, chewing up everyone who has been in contact with the idiot. On any objective scale, the only way to describe trump is as a loser who has been propped up by daddy’s and other people’s money his entire life…I mean, how do you start out with over 400 million dollars and end up shilling for bottled water and steaks…and even those businesses went bust. Maybe that will be my new way to refer to trump…the loser trump…nope, I’ll use it a little but I just like idiot boy better…or moron, or ignoramus, you get the drift…impeach…

February 14th

Well…running a little early today with getting up at 5 again so I thought I’d get to this early, too…think I may be getting over the cold already since I don’t feel that bad right now…the coughing is better but my throat still feels weird when I swallow and it remains to be seen how much energy I’ll have today… wasn’t too bad yesterday and I even got two rides and a workout in but that did take a lot out of me…one good thing is my shoulder barely hurts today and that means I may be able to get on the weight machine again today…probably should keep to the every other day schedule since it has been working and being essentially pain free for the first time in two months is something I want to enjoy for a while…didn’t get much done yesterday but clean a little and will probably do the same today…couldn’t get motivated to vacuum yesterday but I will do that today after the grocery run…after I have my coffee and read the paper, that is….okay, am already feeling worn out and I’ve only been up for an hour so the grocery run may be a chore today….more later….

trump “invents” the 4th of July…

Well…geez, how damn stupid is trump? That’s not a rhetorical question with the latest idiocy to come out of the idiot in chief’s mouth yesterday. Talking to reporters, and with a straight face, idiot boy said he had an idea for celebrations in the summer, around July 4th that would include maybe fireworks and parades and that they could possibly be held across the country to celebrate the US and it’s people. The idiot then acted like it was a brand new idea that he should be given credit for and that no one has ever thought of before…okay…how can anyone be this damn dumb? What’s next? Taking credit for inventing a game that has people throwing a ball through a round steel hoop? Or how about grocery stores…after all, he has never been in one so how can they exist without trump? Man…I am tired of writing about the stupidity of this moron…I think it’s melting my brain cells and I don’t have that many left to give…impeach…

February 13th

Well….it’s official, I’ve got a damn cold and feel pretty crappy…it started to get bad yesterday with a sore throat and lots of coughing and that explains why I have been so exhausted lately, too…and just getting out of bed and sitting here on the couch I’m sweating through my clothes…I sure hope it’s not the flu and I would be pretty irritated if it is since I got a flu shot this year for the first time in a long time…so, it looks like a do nothing day today…okay, not do nothing…I am going to try to work out and get at least one ride in but I feel pretty miserable right now so we’ll see…I did sleep okay last night…for me, and didn’t hurt my shoulder much so that is a good thing but I think there will be a nap in my future to take care of the cold…I just want to lay down with a blanket right now but I have a few things to do…I need to read the news and I should vacuum my bedroom today since the plastic coating on the cables of the weight machine is shedding all over the place and it is annoying to look at…but, I don’t think I’ll get much more done feeling as I do….more later…

The idiot is becoming irrelevant…

Well…not sure if any of you watched the idiot’s rants last night, and if you did, not sure if you belong here…but even the conservative pundits are calling it an “incoherent, rambling mess” and have noted that he’s getting less and less coverage since his schtick is getting “boring” after hearing the same old crap for years now. Now, with the agreement on keeping the government open that was hammered out by conference committee in the House and Senate, idiot boy is not getting the 5.7 billion dollars he cried about for his wall…and, in fact, there is a part of the bill that specifically prohibits building his “big beautiful” concrete wall, instead financing a small fence that will only be a few miles long. Again, Nancy Pelosi has shown trump the new reality in Washington, that she is running the show and, along with senate repubs, has made idiot boy irrelevant since, if he throws a tantrum and won’t sign the bill, they are already talking about overriding his veto…adding to his embarrassment of being owned by Pelosi. The funding bill must be a pretty good compromise since fox news has been hammering it all day, trying to ensure that trump sees it and will then do what they say and veto the bill….it will be an interesting few days as we wait for the idiot to rant away on twitter and try to convince everyone that he wanted it just the way it is and it is a “Huuuuge” win for him…impeach….

February 12th

Well…running a little late for me today…didn’t get out of bed until after 6 and you would think that would mean that I slept okay…not really, tossed an turned all night and feel really slow right now so I hope the coffee will start to work soon…I did get out of here for a while last night to have a couple with G and it was not terrible…and I didn’t get back here until almost 9:30 and that is a late night for me…that may be part of why I feel so slow today…but, it was nice to get out for a while and be around some people again…I am waiting for the big snowstorm that was predicted for last night but it hasn’t happened yet…it does look like there is some ice out there that will have to be melted off the car but not much snow…of course, I’m not bitching about the lack of snow…I could do without any more snow this winter….I did get out to run some errands yesterday but I am going to lay low today and just do the normal routine….going to try to clean a little before Man U plays at 3 but I’m not going to worry much about that…more later….

Don’t worry about Mueller anymore…

Well…with the latest reporting that trump and his cronies have been trying to prevent Robert Mueller from investigating trump’s money laundering through Deutsche Bank, one thought popped into my head…we don’t have to worry about Mueller anymore. Look…with the dems in charge of the house and it’s investigative powers, having the idiot in chief continuing to focus on stopping Mueller is just fine…let him do whatever he wants there because there is not one damn thing he can do about Adam Schiff and the House Intelligence Committee, who has made it clear over the weekend that he is concerned that Mueller is not looking into the Deutsche Bank loans and it’s relationship to trump and his cronies. So, let’s all take a breath and understand that no matter what trump does, he is in for a world of hurt when the truth comes out of the house committees…and there are at least four of them that have taken up their constitutional duty of oversight of the most corrupt, criminal administration in the history of this country…and there are no “red lines”, no anything that is off limits to them…and trump can only watch as they peel back the years of criminality of the thug in chief…impeach….

February 11th

Well…not sure if I should celebrate not getting out of bed until 6 today or not…I did sleep okay last night and my shoulder doesn’t hurt much so that is celebration worthy and I’ll take it…didn’t have any dreams that I can remember but that’s pretty normal for me…I did try to eat enough yesterday but, as you know, that is pretty hard for me…going to try again today…you would think it would be pretty easy to do but it isn’t for me…I guess it’s ingrained habit from years of trying to control my weight…and not too successfully…didn’t get a lot done yesterday with all of the sports on and today will probably be the same…I do need to get out and get my hair cut this morning and put gas in the car for the mess that is coming tomorrow…another round of show/rain/sleet/freezing rain and the rest of the crap that I am getting really tired of…but, I guess it’s February in Michigan so I need to just roll with it and hibernate for another couple of days…I think I may try to do a bike ride that mirrors the normal ride on the trail…I’ve done it so many time that I can remember what gears and how many shifts it takes…I do wonder how to simulate the coasting downhill since the trainer just stops when I stop pedaling…maybe use my imagination? More later….

No politics today…

Well….have been trying to think of a topic to do in politics today and have just decided to give up for now and just noodle around a bit…I did watch “Bohemian Rhapsody” last night and it was an okay movie but, since I’ve seen a few documentaries on Freddie Mercury before, their were no surprises in it and I think the portrayal by Rami Malek was kind of like sleepwalking through the film….I think the only reason I watched the whole thing was that I decided to have cocktails last night after taking the whole week off…I’m still fighting the frozen locks on the car and I can’t figure that out since it has been above freezing since the big rain and freeze last week…I could barely get them open to go out to have a couple with K yesterday, and going out to get the paper this morning, even with flooding them with WD-40…well…kinda flooding them…I found that my normal WD can still has material in the bottom but it was out of propellant when I went out this morning so I had to use the water resistant can that still worked…need to get more this week with the new ice storm that is coming Tuesday…this weather is wearing me down and I need it to be over…I think today is the first day we haven’t had a watch or warning out in a couple of weeks but that ends tomorrow night and then it gets COLD again later in the week….I can live with it if I can get in the car….

What you never want to be….
