Monday, December 20.



Ok... sorry... :D hahahaha... Monday... what can I say. He wanted to make faces... and I'm the "obliging" kind of dad. :)

Sweet mercy... ok, first of all IT'S FUCKING COLD. Not... just "cold" you know... but like "biblical proportions" kinda cold...
As I drove FOR TWO HOURS to get to work... the radio warns, "exposed skin can be frostbitten in 30 seconds..." Oh fucking great.
It's minus 44 and some Toe Jam flips his SUV on the highway giving me a very sloooow drive to work.
Now... just imagine... 30 seconds to frostbite... and you're upside down in your seat belt with all the windows smashed watching the coffee drain out of your starbucks car cup. I wonder if he absently worried about coffee stains on the roof of his car as cars were screeching around him trying to stay out of the body shops?

The pavement... the roads... they look dry... but don't be fooled. That's a layer of white frost. Dude... the BRASS SCREW that sticks through my front door holding the Knocker in place... it had an inch of frosted ice (like in your freezer) on the INSIDE of my door.

Yeah... so back to my first thought... It's fucking cold man. brrrrrrrr...

Now... It's also very sunny... The High Pressure system has settled in after pushing yesterdays snow away with a c-c-c-c-c-cold wind. So we can all bask in the glory of a brilliant sun.
HEY... do you know what a "sun dog" is? A very glorious sun dog thing accompanied my journey to work... it's ice crystals in the air that create a circular rainbow out about 35 degrees from the sun... so you're looking in the sky ... not at all at the sun, and there is this brilliant glowing something with with a rainbows shooting out of the top and bottom... no really... it was filling me with that "why don't I have a camera in my car?" angst. :)

// look, it's getting close to January and I can't bite my tongue about the Election thing they're planning for Iraq.
The leading American Lap Dog... er... I mean, presidential candidate, is being criticized for holding the show trials of Sadam and his ilk, as opportunist and a "vote getting" strategy.
hmm... "vote getting" hmmm... "Prosecute our Crimes Against Humanity"... the Iraqi version of Pork barreling.
DUDES... try giving people water and electricity!!!!!
I feel like I'm in the concession line up to get a hot dog at an Evil Kinevil Canyon Jump here...
Exactly how many dead people blown up in various election protests is too many?
What did they lose this weekend? 160 people dead from car bombs?
Well they have 25 million people in Iraq... so theres no doubt loads of cannon fodder for this exercise in Democracy.
25 million... I wonder how many of them are a little pissed at being Occupied. Clearly... more than a few.
Oh and the three election officials dragged from their car and shot in the streets of Baghdad on Saturday...
Seriously guys... are you insane? Elections?
Shit... why don't we schedule an Olympics there while we're at it?

Ok... Time to go talk to the boss... :)

have a really great day... where ever you are, what ever you are doing...
At least you weren't upside down in minus 44 degree weather watching coffee drain from a car cup and listening to tires screech.

PS... GO CRAZY and put a random smooch in all your friends journals today... just do it...
Imagine all that smoochy-ness...
Tis the season muchachos y muchachas... :D :D
