Sorry if I didn’t type this up anytime sooner, but here we go.
1. The attorney firings
Basically the story is the White House, especially Attorney General Alberto Gonzalez, fired eight attorneys, six of them, based on review, and was on good standing. The Senate was up in arms on the firing thinking this is for political reasons. This has resulted in the Deputy Chief of Party resign and a cloud over the Bush administration again. If it was the beginning of the administration terms like Janet Reno’s 93 firings in 1993, fine. But, do it in the middle of the term, sound a little shaky. I’m not shock at the result, but this is a lame duck administration trying to hold firm of a potential onslaught and right now, they are losing grip and realize there in a no-win situation.
2. Daylight Savings Time
Daylight Savings Time was expanded this year from mid-March to early November so everyone gets more light throughout the day. Here’s what happens when the switch happened:
- More heat = bad situation to me
- I caught a terrible cold
- More pollen
- My house will be toasted much longer
Yes it involves me, but why we need more light? Also, can the government change time? It feels odd that the government feels that way and all I can say is bring on more Global Warming and cold medicine.
3. March Madness
Ah, may favorite time of the year. Sadly, most of the picks have been chalk. The bad news is all my picks were screwed in the beginning, which was different from the other years where I pick the majority of 1st and 2nd rounds correctly. The good news: most of the brackets I entered, I corrected have 3 of the 4 teams in the Final Four. I feel kind of good, but it won’t match the excitement last year with my alma mater made that magical run. I’m glad no mid-major made that far, so George Mason is still the originals. Of course, I still in the running to my pools this year and I can get my money back. Oh, go Georgetown!!!
Thanks to the long cold I had, that’s all for today. Pray to the man that there is a nuclear winter someday.
If you know me, and let me reiterate it again; I rarely go out. Last Friday, I attended the Vagina Monologues to support my friend, who was in the play. I know what the play was about, but I didn’t know how long it was because I’m worried I have to stay in my seat for 3 hours. It was well less (A little over 2 hours). Anyway, it’s a bunch of monologuesdealing with the struggles and retribution of a woman, or in this case, their vagina. This is not a play per se, but a caring message about taking care of a woman’s vagina. I heard positives and negatives about the play and I would say I understand the play and its time. There are some criticism that this takes the wrong vision of feminism and the play doesn’t involve men. Well, in my opinion, this is a woman’s point of view of what she sees daily. There at times women are urges, a man asking for a showing, a woman experimenting. Each monologue holds a different view, which suppose to give options. All it says is a woman must be independent and make the best choice for yourself. I think it’s our different POVs that there are mixed reviews, but if you’re an independent woman, I would go see this play.
My favorite segment: Remaining C—(I can say cock, it’s the other c-word I can’t say because I’m a guy and don’t want to pull a Larry David)
My favorite quote: From my friend – “The clitoris is a nerve bundle made up of 8,000 nerves ends, twice as much as the penis. Why carry a hand gun when you have a semi-automatic?”
The only regret: Somebody outbid me for the Hot-n-Cold Teddy Bear and the Big Fat Blue Penguin. >:(
A month ago, my brother, TK, adopted a dog from his good friend. I’m not good at breeds, but it looks like a mix between a poodle and shih tzu. When everyone is at work, my brother drops off the dog to my house so mom doesn’t get lonely. Actually, it’s very nice to have a pet around and take care of it. The puppy’s name is “Puffy Saigon Tran.” Puffy issmall and young, but very jubilant and obedient. I love Puffy come around and play for a few minutes. The only problem I have with Puffy is that she has a foot fetish on me. She loves to lick my toes for some reason (I know the reason, but It’s from work, give me a break.). It’s like the ATHF’s “Handbanana” episode (If don’t know what I’m talking about, don’t bother). That is the only flaw, but Puffy is a great addition to our family and finally, I’m not the youngest anymore.
