"hey Geo... k'mere and lets give 'em that freaky beaver salute thing... "

[ :: and because it's a good day to get a smile out there... (even if I look like a dip) :: ]

I got up early ... well, with the initial alarm and made for the coffee and TV. I watched the images from the gulf and ... dude, it looks like a war zone. War in the gulf... imagine that.

The rain has started here... they are calling for heavy rain and wind but it will feel like nothing... after watching the news for the last couple of days.

Geo woke up when I was on the sofa watching the news and he came to snuggle... a coffee, a housecoat, a blanket and Geo in his pj's all snuggled up... is a gift from the gods unlike any other. There is nothing I would trade these moments of fatherhood for... not one imaginable thing in the universe. *sigh*

West Wing script writers could not produce something as compelling and hilarious as the Hugo Chavez / Pat Robertson thing.
Chavez was first up the plate offering support to the Gulf states.
Now lets look at what actually happened... A religious leader... arguably an "extremest religious leader"... makes a televised threat against a foreign leader. WOW.
When Bin Laden did that... (from Afghanistan) Bush attacked Iraq and kicked the shit out of that country.
So... what I'm worrying about is... if the parallels continue... Venezuela should be attacking Canada any day now.
Can you just see Bush demanding that the middle eastern countries hand Bin Laden over to American forces to answer for his crimes.
Well... Chavez is asking the US to turn Roberson over. We can only hope that the US will try to set a good example... bwaahahahaha...

How does that work? Hurricane yesterday... and today...
the oil in the ground under the gas station for the last week...
purchased at last weeks prices... suddenly jumps by 20 cents
per liter. Dude... gas was $1.20 per liter... that is pretty
damn close to $4.00 per US Gallon. (and, btw, you don't
convert exchange rates when comparing gas prices...
it makes no sense to do that... seeing as you spend your
own currency on your own gas )
~ this is ... I have heard... only the beginning.
It is - officially - time to point and laugh at people driving hummers, yukons, expeditions, and the rest...

Handily this next line... will be the most heartless thing I think I have ever said in my journal.
"Southern gulf red states... hmmm... bummer. Karma's a bitch ... So, who's next? Ohio?"

(edit: find the tongue and see how it rolls around on my cheek... goodness. enough with the hate mail... and if something that blatently goofy is gonna be a shit storm starter... then you are definately reading the wrong journal. The weather gods clearly hate the red states and I'm making a joke out of it. Don't like the joke? Well you don't have to. and - in light of the response - I refuse to remove it.)


(Edit 2 (a 1:40pm): ok... so, I'm not intractable. I can see - after reading a few comments and ignorning hate mail - that the degree to which that last bit was in bad taste needs to be addressed. I take it all back and appologise for making the crack in the first place. If you know me... you know I'm anything but heartless.)

Alrighti then... work .
