Cold and sunny... frost over car windows... wrapping a "car blanket" over my legs on the drive to work... brrrrr....

You know what's odd? er... ok, hold it... way to open ended a question for this crowd... hahaha...
The thing is... I spend a great deal of energy every morning just convincing myself that I'm actually awake. Work at that hard 'nuf and you start believing it... hence a regular day.
Oh... "regular" and "regula"... D'ya know anyone that drops the "r" from words like that... does it drive you wingy?

Seeing "The Incredibles" makes me wanna watch Holly Hunter movies... Raising Arizona and Network News come to mind... Arizona because it's one of the all time freakiest movies EVER... and News... because that scene when Holly hangs up the phone in the hotel room and has a big cry... because she "needs to get a cry out"... gah... I totally dig her...

On gifts... Geo got some nice gifts from his friends on Saturday... but the big winners were a single gift of five new mini-logo packs... not big expensive lego "sets" ... but the little 5$ kits that build a single small vehicle... and COME WITH A GUY (a little lego dude) - they were all "star wars" lego btw, and an obviously inexpensive but HUGE aircraft carrier... almost no moving parts... just big plastic and ... um... cool looking. Add an old Lincoln Log Set to this mix and you have the recipe that held the kids attention ALL DAY yesterday... not even once did they turn on the tv... Sure, there were breaks to do other things... but this small mix of bits of wood and the handful of lego and the boat thing... totally had their imagination station transmitting at 50,000 watts all day. It was lovely.

I'm about to hop in the shower this morning and news radio dude is talking...
"The interim Iraqi President authorized American forces to begin their advance on Fallujah..."
*cough*... because, of course, he really had to struggle with his option of telling them to just go home and forget about Fallujah.

I mean, those "insurgents" have some nerve... holing up in some city in their country and waging a pitted battle against an occupying army.
Fuckers... I even heard they were fighting back with bullets and stuff.
But not to worry... a few hundred million dollars worth of bombs delivered by several billion dollars worth of cool fighter jets and supporting infrastructure will calm those restless natives down.

So there's no women or kids living in Fallujah right? No schools... hospitals... food markets... because ... you know, only Chechnian terrorists hurt women and kids or damage stuff like that...

Political capital huh...

Have a great monday ... where ever you are.
