Drivel to the left Drivel to the right

Journal Entry: Sat Jun 27, 2015, 4:42 PM

Hang on, I think it is dribble.  I never was much good at organized school spirit.  I was in the marching band in high school and, for the most part, the band never watched the football game.  I think the band conductor did because he would cue us for fight songs and such, or maybe he had a timer go off in his head and just played at random times since a fight song is appropriate for a losing team, maybe less appropriate for a winning one, but hey, it was Philadelphia…”yo Adrian”. 

I am back on DA looking for a specific journal entry.  Do you know how many journal entries I have?  I don’t.  I would guess it at somewhere between “lots” and “that’s a lot of drivel”.  Here’s the thing, DA achieves only go back to 2010 and this was written during my very early days here…very…early.  I have grown up on DA *cough*.  Unfortunately, all of my backup files were corrupted, and while I would have had them somewhere in the either, now, my only hope of finding this entry is in a hard copy, printout.  Let that be a lesson to the digital agers.  You are only as good as your last back up, and maybe not even. 

By the way, have I mentioned yet how much I hate windows 8 and HP laptops?  S’truth.  I might be eligible for a free upgrade to windows 10.  Yes, free because Microsoft is that embarrassed by 8.

As I write, himself is watching a dvr’d world cup game.  He is speeding through because he knows who won.  He says the real world cup will be on Tuesday between Germany and USA since they are 1 and 2 ranked despite being paired in the semifinal.  I don’t care other than it makes himself happy.

Once again, I had to explain my stance on not buying anything that promotes a company, i.e. logo, unless said company pays me to wear it, or gives it to me for free.  My nephew, the beneficiary of this world view, pointed out that I was wearing a Boba Fett shirt.  Almost touché.  You see, it was a Woot shirt where the artists barely get by creating something, but not quite not copying it even though everyone and their grandma knows what’s what.  Proceeds go to the artist, and not fed into the Disney profit machine, those management bastards making their fired employees train their own (cheap foreign labor) replacements or not receive severance.  What needs to be replaced is management, and they need to be replaced by nothing, give the workers a raise.

I have accepted the fact that I have gone from middle of the road to republican to screaming left socialist.  I did not want to, I was forced by the general incompetence, greed, and downright meanness of the party over the last 15 years.  Plus, I don’t like corporate oligarchies.

Mercy, I’ve never met so many people who wish the south had seceded, or at least give Texas back to Mexico, then they wouldn’t have an illegal immigrant problem, would they?

People are either happy with the latest SCOTUS or wanting an impeachment (can they impeach a SC justice?)  The thing is, it wouldn’t matter what SCOTUS did, the same number of people would wish them well or ill, just not the same people.  What some seem to forget is that the function of the SC is to interpret, because if everything was black or white, there would be no need to interpret.  Of course, in Scalia’s case, he is senile and forgets opinions he wrote before he worked for the Koch brothers.

Anyway, HRH is expecting her 4th, count em 4, baby anytime between now and 4 weeks.  My nerves are set on edge every time she hiccups.  Ted has gone back to school for welding at the suggestion of his brother who may have ulterior motives.  Hey, whatever the motives, if this child can pay some of his FA student loan, I will be happy, a more useless degree, there is not.

I sprained my ass a couple of weeks ago prying up some counter top.  I cannot imagine how my ass got involved in that action, but I felt it protest and it has been doing it ever since, even pulling in the sciatic nerve from time to time for emphasis.  I just finished a week at the beach with my brother’s family and Wild Thing, and all of that sand walking and board walking have me hobbling about like a peg leg pirate.  We have our own little family excursion to the beach, but that is not until after this baby, and, hopefully, I can sit on the porch, watch the waves, and sip my mint julep, or beer…whatever.  In my dreams, I visualize me rocking a sleeping baby, handing her back to her mother when she fusses.  As I said, in my dreams.  Dreams rarely match reality.  The best you can hope for is a ground rule double, and I don’t even know what that is having explained my aversion to sports.  Speaking of, do you believe my nephew’s kids made us watch the NBA draft?  Excruciating, yet stupidly fascinating at the number of people who seem to pay to get into the venue to watch.  Some people really will pay to watch paint dry.

:rose:

May I become at all times, both now and forever
A protector for those without protection
A guide for those who have lost their way
A ship for those with oceans to cross
A bridge for those with rivers to cross
A sanctuary for those in danger
A lamp for those without light
A place of refuge for those who lack shelter
And a servant to all in need.

-Tenzin Gyatso (14th Dalai Lama)
