“I’ve Had Just About Enough Of Myself Today”

Tuesday, May 31st, 2011

I must have this thing about robots.

The title quote is from my beautiful twin Amy.  I resisted writing a blog for years because the ones I read were everyone else’s daily, boring, bullshit lives.  But the “father” of this blog, Paul X (he asked me never to use his name here) said I could write anything I wanted.  So I hope you like my daily opinions and, perhaps, “quirks” – but I’ve had a lousy day and  now – for just one day – you’re going to have to read about it. Why? Because.

• It was 91-friggin’ degrees here with lots of humidity.  I have one of those big, square, floor fans which is now on my desk about a foot from my face. I made a decision in January NOT to purchase the air conditioning, extra rent “plan”. Did you read: JANUARY?!!

• Wednesday the Cat fell asleep on her back with all of her paws out trying to keep cool looking like a kitty slut.  It’s got to be a bitch to wear a fur coat in this weather.

• Maybe because it was too hot in the daytime but a jackhammer has been pounding since about 5:00 pm.  Even though I’m 18-floors from the ground, it sounds like it’s on my terrace which has to be open because of the heat.  If he doesn’t stop by my bedtime, tomorrow you may see me on the national news.

• I’m starving but it’s too hot to make dinner.  I didn’t say “cook” – I said “make”.  Lenny Bruce once said the saddest thing in the world is a hooker’s refrigerator. He never saw mine.  I’ve lived on peanuts and wine since 11:00 AM.

• I will probably delete this post tomorrow.

• I’m sick of looking at that Iraqi guy’s face on my previous blog and tonight Sarah Palin and Donald Trump are having dinner together in New York – really! (And I only get peanuts).  Will she invite him back to the bus?

And how was your day? (never mind I was just being polite)

 

We “Won” In Iraq? Bullshit!

Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki

Iraqi’s have a strange way of showing appreciation for America’s billions of  war dollars and US troops killed in the last 10-years.  Basically most Iraqi’s want us out of their country saying we are now “occupying” it.  Last week there were violent anti-American protests which included the cliched flag burnings and hate chants.  US commercial interests were also attacked.

Prime Minister al-Malaki (the man we wrestled to the top of the turban heap in “free” elections last March) wants the 50,000 troops to stay past the December agreement.  Few others do.  Why?  Iraq’s nearly-demolished  infrastructure has to be rebuilt and Americans can help.  The troops could protect the rebuilding contracters like Haliburton  – and – not for nothing – keep him in power.

Mission accomplished?  Uh, not so much.  Maybe we’ll do better in Afghanistan.  Right.
