Today is Tuesday and it's my day off. The first non-working day after 6 in a row. As is my habit, I slept in. For me, 6 days is more than I want. And it isn't as though I don't have chores to do. This afternoon Faulkner Subaru is doing some sort of recall check on my car, it's supposed to take a half hour. Till the whole thing is done, I'm going to lose over an hour in the middle of my day. And this is my only day off until Sunday. Son of a Bitch!
Anyway. The Devil's Food cake is gone. I stepped on the scale this morning. Holy Poundasaurus! And here I am planning on frying up around 2 dozen egg rolls late this afternoon.
For those who don't know... we're 1/3 of the way through winter, give or take a day. So far the temps have been a tad warmer than usual. They're forecasting rain on Friday, changing over to wet snow early Saturday morning. Can you feel my excitement?
Another thing planned for today is the dismantling of my beloved elliptical. The thing is nearly 12 years old and was used heavily, unfortunately no one wants a heavily used, old piece of exercise equipment, even if it's free.
You may think it looks small, but it isn't. Size you know? From the front to the back, it's 8 feet (2.43 meters) long and it's just as tall. I ride bikes now and they are much more fun.
And, of course, the Idiot Jerk's impeachment trial begins today. Moscow Mitch is desperately trying to control the damage as much as possible without making the situation any worse than it already is; the last thing Republicans want is for their base to start thinking. He is walking a very thin line. Voters need to believe the illusion that fairness is in play. Of course, there are two definitions of fairness here, the Republicans believe kissing the ass of their tinfoil dictator is fair, they want him to stay in power, while the Democrats define fairness in terms of the constitution, that great document which binds us together into one nation. Democracy will win out. So many Blue elected officials are going to be fired in November. And Moscow Mitch will go down in history as just one more loser who sold his soul to the Idiot Jerk in the White House.
