Well thanks to about 100 SOS emails from me to AdLib, I got my mojo back and it came with my Gravator too.

It’s almost my Sunday, hope that you all have a good Saturday.

Good night from a sleepy Tokyo.

It’s getting quiet, there seems to be an exodus, and I’ve got some offline writing to get back to. In any case, I ducked into two world stories (take a wild guess what on) quickly, but my absence here was not an indication that I wasn’t boycotting successfully. I’ve only messed up on that once when it honestly slipped my mind what day it was!

Awwww, I slept all day and now I’m completely full of beans…

HA! Beans…
My kids were feeding the dogs and I asked them –
“What did you give the dogs that made them eat everything up so fast”
They replied….
“Oh, Beans, Mom, we used that can in the fridge….
and added it to their food.”
Thanks a lot, they have to have them sleep in my room.
Oh boy, that can has been there for over a week.

You know what we say about beans, right?

I hope that you had gas masks.

I was sawing logs all day… They even got me a movie, but I fell asleep 10 minutes into it.

“the stockings were hung by the chimney with care…”

and boomer is ~ 2 hours from Stupid O’Clock. Between the music, Vox Populi, and plain old family drama (seems to only show up around the holidays), I’m wound up tighter than Santa’s alarm clock.

I was pondering staying up and nap all day today. After all, it’s now Saturday morning, still dark out, 22 degrees, and my furry critters are staring at me. I have them really confused.

Those days of staying up until the wee hours are long gone for me. I need at least 7 hours of sleep to function the next morning. With 16 cats always needing something, a nap is just a distant dream for me, plus napping gives me a headache. I’m usually in bed before midnight.

Hello BDM, we are being driven potty by road construction noises and shakes. I keep popping out to ask if they are done yet, my outside cats are afraid to come back to our garage to eat.

How are you and yours?

Too bad for your little ones, my boys would be barking at them for making all that noise..

It’s very cold today, wind chill brings temp down to 6 degrees, the older one is stiff with arthritis, so I had to give him some aspirin.

Both right now are stretched out, butt to butt on my couch, oh excuse me, their couch…

Sounds just like my house! My livingroom looks like a greyhound slumber party. One grey on the couch, two on the floor, each with elegant doggie bed.

E’cat, bought a pricey bed for one of my hounds. He would sleep on the hardwood floor an put his head on the bed. (if he couldn’t sneak on my bed)

LOL…boy do I know how you feel, and Hubbsters says it’s because I bought the wrong ones.

I should have bought the one that look like couches, that have the back to them. Because that’s what they like…apparently he has had some heart to heart talks with the boys when I was not around.

Boomer, your family Sundays sound like absolute hell! I had a boyfriend like that. I would go to his house and his friends would come over and suddenly I’m surrounded by jerks spouting off the N word. It was a real shock to me and I ended up just slinking away to hide in the bedroom.

E’Cat,
Yep, just imagine it went on until I got married and had kids. One day, and after much therapy, I told all of them they could do whatever they wanted in their own homes, EXCEPT when my kids were around OR in my home.

I’ve been the outsider ever since.

On the racism thing, I wrote this at ‘another site’ and kinda saved it:

So, I’m just gonna throw this out there. I know some see racism everywhere. I try to be circumspect about it. But here’s what I’ve been thinking.

Now, all their memes are vapid: teleprompter, mustard, ACORN, pronunciation of a certain South Asian country, and yes, Birthers, especially. But what I was rolling through my mind was this obsession with him golfing. Now, with some, I think they get a certain kick throwing back our stuff – though many seem genuinely thrown off by the fact that Bush was golfing away too – “now watch this drive”. Yet, with the mocking of him golfing, and I’m sorry to say this in the post-Tiger world (no not the current state of ‘affairs’), I sense a tinge of something else in the snide tone and the rapid spread with which it took hold (represented in monikers (t)here, for example). How many presidents have golfed? More than have used a teleprompter, that’s for sure. So what is the big fixation about him golfing really about? Seems like it should be, pardon this, par for the course. (If you’re Boehner though you always look like you missed par on a gimme putt.)

Am I unfairly reading too much into it?

Granted, I don’t have to be so coy with you guys, but what do you think?

This is why I say it makes people stupid.

Being on the receiving end of this attitude… People look like they’ve lost their minds. Seriously.

Khirad,

I had the sense long before golf. During the campaign for example…folks (and I’m being generous here) stood in line to see the McPalin KLAN. tHEY WERE HOLDING EVIL SIGNS, CARRYING SOCK MONKEYS, AND OVERWHELMINGly reminded me of my family (both sides)…a bunch of old, bigoted men and wome, with their adult children (who knew no better) in tow. It’s inbred. Period. If one is never exposed to anything different, one becomes a product of one’s environment.

It’s all that nature vs. nurture thing.

I loved the poetic use of ‘inbred’. 😉

I remember this post, Khirad. I never watch Fox et al so I haven’t seen them making a big deal out of it. But my old dad was a huge golf fan and fond of the term “blackies” and, had he still been alive, he would have had a fit both at Tiger and Obama.

No, you are correct, my husband also picked up on the snide tone….welcome to the Good Old White Boys Club….

It confirmed for me that it really is (with quite a few of them), about him being in the most exclusive clubhouse. Others, who are younger (remember that one case where the young Republican girl didn’t get the slave reference posted online?) may not get the undertones and really be so dense as to think it’s the criticism they purport it to be – of a man at play while shirking his duties (again, cf. Bush). But the others know full well the dog whistles they’re sending out there.

I worked at a private golf club for a couple of years, blacks where allowed but not encouraged to be members…they always found a way to deny them membership. All on the up and up though, {{wink}}, {{wink}}…

There are code words, some secret language that they have, winks, nods and so forth…
