I am probably the millionth person to tell you this, but I’ll tell you anyway. Dave Barry has a blog. It’s on blog*spot, and I figure he must have something on somebody over there, because while most blogs on blog*spot take forever to come up, his just pops onto your screen like nobody’s business.

I watched the state of the union address. Okay, let me amend that statement a little bit. I was in the same room with a television set on which the state of the union address was being shown.

I went to sleep. Okay, let me amend that statement a little bit. The state of the union address put me to sleep.

Was anything important said?

I have been thinking about what it is that has been keeping me from putting all my energy into the search for new employment, because I know that if I really put my mind to it I would have new employment within the week.

It’s the whole interview process. Interviews are humiliating and degrading, and I just can’t put myself through that right now. I cannot sit across a table from somebody half my age, with half my experience, and answer questions like “Tell me about yourself” and “What did you like most about your last job?” and “What did you like least about your last job?” and “Tell me about a time this or that happened and how you handled the situation.” I can’t do it. (At least without laughing.) So I’ll continue to suffer with the job I currently have, and continue to bitch and moan about it.

And what did we learn from the Super Bowl, boys and girls? We learned that a good defense will beat out a good offense every time. There is a life lesson to be learned here. Be defensive, not offensive. And we thought football was just a big old waste of time!

Korben is recognisable because the population of the UK voted for him over the thousands of applicants to secure him a place in the final stages of the massively popular TV show Pop Idol. He wowed viewers with his energy, enthusiasm, charm, stunning voice and passion for performing. Those cheeky, boyish looks and sparkling eyes might have helped too!”

Also doesn’t hurt that he’s kind of sexy, and I’ll bet he has a lovely British accent!

Screwy Super Sunday

We will be watching the Super Bowl this evening, and we will be enjoying it. We will cheer each and every time one of those overpaid baboons gets knocked on their ass. Each and every player in that game will be making several times my annual salary. For playing in one game. One game. Three hours. I can spell better than any of them. Something ain’t right.

The commercials will also be entertaining. Did you know that a 30 second commercial spot during the Super Bowl costs two million dollars? $2,000,000.00. I could live out the rest of my life rather comfortably with two million dollars. Hell, one would probably do it.

What a wonderful screwed up country we live in.

Jan. 22 — President Bush’s popularity ratings — once among the highest of any president in the past 60 years — are eroding across the board, according to a new NBC News-Wall Street Journal poll. Bush is losing ground in several key areas, including foreign policy, the economy and his handling of the war on terrorism.

It’s about bloody time people in this country got over their infatuation with this bumpkin and started coming to their senses! Maybe there is hope after all.

That’s for “Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (Book 5)”. Yep, I ordered it from Amazon.com. I am also staying in today, listening to Christmas music. I’m in that kind of mood.

Going now. It is kind of difficult typing over Sunshine, who has decided that right in front of the keyboard would be an excellent place to take a nap.

37,000 More Troops Heading to Gulf

George W. is going to look mighty foolish if there isn’t a war. Is he sending all these people over there only to tell them to turn around and come home?

Oh, there’s going to be a war, alright. I can’t believe that anybody still has any doubt. It’ll be a messy one, too. Mighty messy.

“While emphasizing that President Bush prefers a peaceful solution in Iraq, Rumsfeld said the way to avoid war is to be persuaded by Iraq that it has finally decided to cooperate with the U.N. weapons inspectors.”

Bush prefers a peaceful solution? That’s very funny. He certainly hasn’t been talking or acting like he’s looking for a peaceful solution. The man is out for blood, and he’s going to get it.
