Ok, I was just watching ABC news with Katie Couric and saw that Jack Pallance passed away. That sucks cause I enjoyed his movies. I also saw that yesterday Ed Bradley from 60 minutes died. I’m also sorry to hear that. I don’t watch 60 minutes much but I did enjow Mr.Bradleys sections. I remember one interview he did with Michael Jordan where they played one on one. I know it seems that celebrity deaths always happen in threes so I wonder who the third is. I hate that these two have passed away. Pallance’s unforgettable movie characters and Bradley’s insightful interviews will definitely be missed by me. Hopefully there will not be a third one this time.
Ok, so today is my birthday (33…yuck) and I am going to start my taking a picture everyday since I read that article a few weeks ago but it’s 6:30 and I haven’t taken my picture for the day (my procrastination knows no boundaries) so I will try to find something photoworthy around the house to take a picture of for you guys. But since I have to work at midnight I will probably not get to share it until tomorrow. I will probably be leaving this blog soon but hopefully I’ll be able to export/import everything to my new hosted home. I get paid thursday so I will probably look into that then. Have a fun day everyone
Ok, so I got an email from wordpress support saying my blog would be deleted if I did any PayPerPost postings. That sucks but it’s ok because I haven’t done any yet. I guess my plan to host my blog is getting moved up so I have a few questions for you guys that have hosted wordpress blogs. 1.) Who do you use to host and are you happy with them? I’m looking for someone reliable yet fairly inexpensive. Also, can you help me come up with a cool domain name. I want something unique (obviously) and cool. I look forward to hearing from you. Feel free to answer in a comment. Thanks
I am looking at Rush Limbaugh’s website just to see what he is saying about the historic Republican losses. I find him to be a big, funny man so I’m gonna give you a couple of his quotes:
“We have proven we can beat them. We have proven we can beat Democrats. We have proven we can withstand whatever we get from the Drive-By Media. Conservatism, when properly applied with vigor and honesty, will triumph in this country.” Maybe I’m missing out on something but I thought that you guys lost both houses of the Congress Tuesday.
“Think the militant Islamists and terrorists are happy today? Of course they are! They’re looking at their own future with promise, brighter days, and the Sun never setting.” I just love this one. The Republicans couldn’t finish the Iraq war and find Bin Laden so the terrorists would be happy for them to stay
“If elderly people in Pennsylvania happen to think that the war in Iraq is wrong primarily because it uses money that could be coming to them as increased benefits, then who are they going to blame? They’re going to blame that young whippersnapper Santorum who doesn’t care about them!” Big Rush isn’t far from being elderly himself but he’s wealthy so the issue of growing old knowing that Social Security won’t be there for him doesn’t effect him. Thanks Rush for disrespecting a whole generation of people who fought for freedom in War World II, Korea, and Vietnam. Where did you serve?
I’m watching CNN now and Senator George Allen of Virginia is making his concession speech. This means that the Democrats have 51 seats in the Senate to thr Republicans 49 seats. The election was a sweep with the Democrats taking over. I’m so excited because it means no more of the President and the Republicans ruling the country like a dictatorship. No more freedoms taken from us with Naziesque laws like The Patriot Act. Now the president is saying he wants to work with the Democrats. Where was that before? Now things like raising the minimum wage, maybe curing diseases with stem cell research, and a protection for Roe vs. Wade. Now only 2 years and maybe the Democrats can take back the White House with either NY Senator Hillary Rodham-Clinton, or Illinois Senator Barack Obama. I can’t wait. Go here to read about the Democrats 6-Point Plan that includes A Healthcare System that works for everyone, Energy Independence, Retirement Security, Economic Prosperity and Educational Excellence, Real Security, and Honest Leadership and Open Government. I am very liberal and would love to see some of these initiatives happen. Especially the Energy Independence. I am the biggest Big Oil company skeptic with the way they put their former executives (and I’m sure current stockholders) into the Executive Branch so they could gouge us with outrageous gas prices and make record profits. Honest Leadership is another one I’m not sure about. I mean, the Democrats say they are for the same things I am for but once they get to Washington, the become politicians and really only vote with the lobbyists who fatten their pockets (thats right, I said it. If any of you are reading this then prove me wrong.) At least Donald Rumsfeld is gone.
Ok, so you all know of my elation at the midterm election results and the resignation of Secretary of Defense Rumsfeld but here’s whats going on with me. I joined the fitness center today. My first day included 1/4 mile running on the track, 1 mile of walking on the treadmill, and 1.5 miles on the exercise bike. It’s nice because with working 3rd shift and getting off at 7 am I can go to the gym for an hour when I get off work. I don’t know what I’ll do tomorrow but I’ll let you know my progress. Also, my birthday (yuck..33) is Friday so I plan to begin my project of chronicling my year by taking a picture everyday for a year. Also, I have just under 3 weeks til I can start blogging for PayPerPost so I’m sure you’ll notice that but don’t worry, I will only blog about or endorse things that I care about.
When I woke up today I saw that The Democrats had taken back Congress I got excited. Finally someone to put the President in check, even though he circumvented The Republican Congress whenever possibly. I guess now though he’ll dust of the old Veto pen which he didn’t use for the first 5 years AT ALL. But now I discover that theres icing on the cake. Donald Rumsfeld resigned. I guess it took the whole country being dissatisfied with the war he helped orchestrate to force his hand because we all know that the Generals who served in Iraq speaking out against him didn’t do anything. I am so excited now. I will update more on his replacement later. Oh, and Claire McCaskill from Missouri won.
