yeah... that's me... sleeping! :)
I woke up and zombied through the morning routines and - amazingly enough - didn't go back to bed. So... score, I got to work early... for a change. :) It's at a government department so nobody notices... but who cares... it's the thought that counts or something like that.
last night was a big bunch of nothing... no tv, no movie, no games... just a bunch of puttering around. Well, ok, we piled in the cars and drive to MY mechanics place to drop off Z's maxima (and then all pile in my car for the ride home). She is finally sick of Gary's Automotive... the place has done NOTHING to earn her faith as a customer... but they were close to home... while Parker Automotive... not so close, but has earned my trust and patronage time and time again. The "noise from the exhaust" issue that turned out to be something wrong with a "wheel bearing assembly" (????) was the straw that broke Gary's back. Bye bye bitches... hahaha (k, I gotta stop loving that clause so much). :D
Seeing as Halloween is a mere two (+) months away... of course the grocery stores have stocked up on the various cargo size containers of mini-chocolate bars.... and when z sends me to get groceries with the stern warning... "do not bring home crap" ... well imagine my dilemma*.
~ black stripee ftls
~ black kinda cargos... excellent pants that magically fit again...
~ white golf shirt... what? no dress shirt or tie? (boss is away and everybody else dresses like bums around here... so I'm throwing caution to the wind today. :) (hi boss Obi-wan... relax!)

~ to wave at mrssuperbad a little bit... :D
~ that sugar cack... er... minarets has a great day...
~ that catherine is getting some rest...
~ and to point out that everyday_people, faces and selfportraits ... are just fabulous!!!! (ok, fine... personal opinion... but still).

You know that little coloured strip on the leading edge of your disposable razor? They told you that was the "Vitamine E Strip" or the "Aloe Strip" or some rot like that? Guess again... That little stip is the brainchild of some bastach that got a big raise at Gillette. Notice the strip is some neon colour? Orange, Green or Blue or whatever... and it tends to wear away rather quickly... Ok, first of all... if A 2 MILLIMETER STRIP OF PLASTIC could distribute enough moisturizer to "moisten" anything larger than a fucking gnat... you wouldn't need that three litre bottle of Jergins or whatever you "pump" into your hand and moisten with. "Aloe Stip"....Give me a break!!! The thing was invented so that you would notice it wearing away and decide that the blade must be getting dull or old or something. I swear ... the sales of disposable blades must have skyrocketed after they invented these stupid little coloured strips!!!!
Don't be fooled... unless you're shaving my grade ten gym teachers back every morning... you're disposable blade will proly last five times as long as that strip of plastics colour coating. :)
Pope Benny proclaims that "so called self serve religion is out!! and christianity is the new black" or something similarly pathetic, to an assembled crowd at the XX World Youth Day. "Do not be deterred from taking part in Sunday Mass" implores the Pope. So... lets break that down shall we?
First he tells you to "Stop turning to your own sense of spirituality to find peace and confidence... You have to go to church and embrace Catholicism or you and your religion are for shit."
And then... like every good salesman, he goes for the closer "and don't be shy... come... come to the church on Sunday... we're passing around this thing we call the collection plate and it's got your name on it sukka!!! Oh wait... we have a convienient auto withdrawl preapproved cheque thing too.
But don't let this worry you... no, don't worry that he's telling everyone to stop believing in themselves and start depending on some theoretically sex-free, potential child molester SLASH potential cardinal (apparently that's the same thing to Benny) for your guidance... spiritual or otherwise... and while you're at it... don't forget to bring your wallet!!!
The Iraqi government is on a countdown to tabling their constitution ... they've been having some trouble... in fact the Sunis have asked the US to help them make sure the other two parties don't ratify some agreement they don't agree with... So George calls up the Suni dude and asked him..."yo, Ackmed... how much Oil do you have?"
On a related note: Apparently the only issues left for the Iraqis to sort out in finalizing their constituion is the division of power and the distribution of Oil Wealth. Clearly these guys have not been listening to a word George has had for them in ages!!! In response... The United States Military Forces across Iraq were order to raise flags at every outpost that read "ALL YOUR BASES ARE BELONG TO US!!".
* dilemma : bring me the head of demon that decided to spell delema like that... may you suffer long illness, recover and be hit by a car leaving the hospital.
Alrighti... time for more worky worky...
