Random Crap

1) I've become obsessed with the weather lately. Every morning when I fire up the computer I check the weather and look for one thing. While most people look for the actual forecast and temperature setting first, that isn't what I'm focused on. What I've been looking at is the sunrise and sunset times and we've finally hit an important milestone. Why it's important to me isn't entirely logical, nor really explainable either.

We've crossed a thresh hold now that there is 11 hours (plus) between sunrise and sunset. Trust me when I say it's important and it makes me feel better. Yesterday disappointed me when I was anticipating getting to this all important milestone only to see we were one minute short. One lousy minute short. I cursed February 25th and it's shortcoming in this area.

2) Toddler speak isn't my forte. Yesterday was my granddaughter babysitting gig day. It's honestly one of the best days of the week for me. She's two-years-old now and is a lot of fun. For the most part she speaks very well and I understand pretty much everything she's saying. Except yesterday. This is what I kept hearing all afternoon yesterday:

"Pa Pa, I want cuckcold."

I never figured out what she wanted. My son got home from work and the first thing out of her mouth to him was "Daddy, I want cuckcold." He asked me if she'd had any chocolate milk that day. When I said no, because I didn't have a clue what she was asking for, he just laughed and got her a glass of "cuckcold milk."

3) Is Charlie Sheen as big a douchebag as I think he is? While I've never watched his sitcom I can only applaud the CBS decision to shut it down. Hopefully they'll move on without him and the other cast and production members of the crew don't suffer too much due to his over sized ego. I'd like to see him and Lindsay Lohan hook up just in the interest in saving two other people from disaster.

4) Glen Beck compared Reformed Judaism to Islamic Extremism, then apologized when he was informed that was blatantly a bad thing. (I say he was informed simply because he's not bright enough to figure out for himself how stupid his commentary was.)

But he'll be just fine as it's Fox Faux News, which really isn't into accurate reporting anyway, and the people who tune into his show are morons of the lowest form who eat up everything that he spews as their Gospel.

5) I think I'm going to go back to bed. Why I decided to wake up at a little after 3:00 am today is a bit baffling. I suspect it had something to do with item #1 though. That's how oddly obsessed I've been with the sunrise/sunset thing lately. But I have to work later today and 3 hours of sleep isn't going to cut it.

Night, night.

I love little kid speech. It rocks.

Totally agree on Glen Beck. And Charlie Sheen

I woke up with a start at 6:10 am thinking I slept through my alarm and I was going to be late for work, forgetting it is freaking saturday. shit

Wow, early mornings all around. Got up around 5 am, which is INSANE on a Saturday!!

Your granddaughter sounds adorable. I think your son needs to leave you the code book, though, for those kind of things. That poor baby wanted her milk, for Pete's sake!!

Hope you have an easy day at work today. Wait, no I don't. Then you wouldn't have any great stories to share with us! ;-)

Maybe Charlie Sheen and Glen Beck will discover their undying love for each other and we'll be shut of both of them. That would be nice. Get some rest.

I totally get #1. I'm obsessed with checking how much water is in the reservoir in my city. It's crazy low this year and we'll have water shortages if things don't improve, but me checking the report every five minutes doesn't seem to be making the rain come...

Sunrise...sunset - didn't they write a song about that. Actually just realised I know all the words of that song...disturbing. was that from Yentl? Or Fiddler on the Roof, think the latter...
