While I Wait For The Meds To Kick In.

Indulge me. I'm scatter-brained at the moment. Lots to talk about, none of it particularly relevant, just venting, really.

Overheard this morning, while Pie got on the 'puter and brought up our home page:


I had no idea he was such a Baracker. And it's interesting to me because I know he doesn't understand the socioeconomic implications of Universal Health Care or whatever issues separate the candidates, he only knows what he sees on TV, so that's his only basis for preferring one candidate over the other.

Hope he hasn't been influenced too much by the meeeeeedia or anything.

I try not to discuss my views with my kids. Really, I don't care who wins. I'm completely apathetic, politically. Nobody's really going to change America. The best they can hope for is to get it to suck less for a while.

Next, I'd like to call your attention to this article about the New Deadly Sins just because SO many of my loyal fans asked me if I'd seen it:

Here's an excerpt. Click HERE for the whole thing.

When it comes to trespasses, there will always a place for the classics -- pride, envy, anger, sloth, greed, gluttony and lust.

But there are some new sins in town, every bit as deadly, a Vatican official said Sunday in L'Osservatore Romano, the Holy See's daily newspaper.

The day-to-day world is fraught with the potentially pernicious, said Monsignor Gianfranco Girotti, who heads the Apostolic Penitentiary, responsible for issues relating to the forgiveness of sins in Roman Catholicism.

Among modern misdeeds -- polluting the earth, flaunting obscene wealth, promoting social inequalities and injustice, creating poverty, genetic manipulation, morally dubious experimentation, and drug abuse.

Such sins don't just deserve a slap on the wrist, according to Girotti. Instead, they and others form part of a new list of mortal sins, for which eternal damnation is an assured reward.

Suddenly, an urge to recycle.

Like I have tiiiiiiiime, what with my going out of my way to eat meat on Lenten Fridays just to be an asshole. Now I'm gonna have to dump oil in a stream or something just to feel like an asshole. It's a full-time job, for sure. And I'll be honest, sometimes I find it quite rewarding.

Hey, would this count as Morally Dubious Experimentation?
This one's NSFW, FYI, OK? LOL.

If so, sign me up.

Next topic, you know what we haven't talked about yet? The latest round of Reality Shows.

This season of Idol has been incredibly entertaining. I may be in love with David Cook after he rocked out Lionel Ritchie (which sounds dirty, but isn't. Check it out.).

I loved it. And he sang Ellenor Rigby last night, which was equally impressive. Didn't give me the Phantom Letdown Reflex like Hello did, but it was really good. I also love David Archuletta. He's a dollbaby. And it's fun to say Chikezie.

Another random thought, today I drove up to the kids' school at 8am, at 11:30am, at 12:45pm, and I'll go back again at 4:30.

Tomorrow's my Mental Health Day, and I'm takin' it.

Chunky's on the Barack train too. Why? Because his name starts with a "C" and "C" is closer in the alphabet to "B" than to "H." I applaud his spacial reasoning, but I'm so glad he can't vote yet!

It's better than my son who thought I would vote for Hilary just because she's a girl, and debatably (since I'm a mom) so am I. Oh to be nine and back in that zone. . .

I seem to be the only person who is wondering - like isn't God supposed to decide what the sins are? I mean wasn't that the little memo he wrote out for Moses? If we're making up sins, I have one. Insensitivity to cramps is the new deadly sin. I'm not kiddin here. I've decided and my word is final.

But are you watching Girlicious? ZMrK cracks up whenever he hears, "I'm sorry [insert name]. You will NOT be in Girlicious. Please hang up your boa."

The bitchery on that show is astounding!

PS. My word verification is "huckzays", which is pig latin for something, right? Zhucks? Whatever those are. . .

DH and I are reading the Obama book right now. Usually, politicians bore the living daylights out of me, but I'm actually enjoying that book.

And I also recommend the girlicious show (though I've never seen a complete episode). I don't WANT to be on girlicious! What kind of a band name is that?

Isn't that how most of America forms their political opinions?

Your kid is hi-larious!

Mental Health Days are good. Very, very good.
