I've also been told I have little tact, so if this offends you simply ride on.

The Expense, not to be confused with The Expanse

 Wow!  This is the longest night of the year!  That comment is for everyone who is into size, i.e. length in hours.  These are the same people who will throw their hands up in the air and shout "it's sooo short!"  Not that it really matters since in 16 or so hours this day will be done.  This will satisfy all of those people who can't wait until tomorrow to nod with satisfaction and say, "yes, longer is better."

Oh, and in case you haven't noticed, today is also Tuesday.  I don't know if that means anything to some of you or not, but if it does, I want you to know I'm putting it out there.

Things are being rearranged in the living room and the writing room (formerly the dining room).  Space is opening up.  I'm giving that wine cooler I bought to my brother since I only buy a bottle of wine ever few weeks.  For a while, I was using it to chill my Gatorade, not that I needed my Gatorade chilled, I just wanted to put the cooler to use.  So, tomorrow morning it gets delivered to my brother.  I'm sure he and his wife will keep it well stocked.

I'm keeping the porcelain figurine and the lamp

I stopped by my local Giant supermarket yesterday to pick up some things, one of which was Pup-peroni for the dogs.  I was so shocked when the cost rang up at $22.15 I let loose with an expletive.  You might have heard me, I was very loud.  I know the woman next to me opened her mouth in surprise.  Holy Shit!  So I had the clerk remove the charge and take the bag of dog snacks.  Once I got home, I went to and ordered the same size bag for $9.96, no freight charge since it's part of the autoship with the 2 bags of Beneful I get delivered every 4 weeks.  This is how life works.  You make the smart choices.

I understand the January 6 committee would like to talk to Scott Perry.  Good.  Is office in Harrisburg is a little over a mile and a half from where I live.  What a wonderful thing if it were to be shut down.  This loser's been a crucible for right wing hatred for too long.


  1. Oh? I thought size referred to… oh never mind.
    And you’ll have to show us later how you re arrange things. You know how nosy we are.
    And those online retailers are making a killing. Really.
    Can you imagine a better xmas present that having Scott Perry indicted ?
    Oh, having Cheeto indicted, but it’d be a good stocking stuffer…


    1. They don't even have to wrap Perry's ass with a ribbon, just cart him away.

  2. It's getting hot in the GOP since those texts, and the threat of more, came out.
    I'm here for it.

  3. I don't actually mind this time. It makes me take it easy and hibernate of sorts after the holidays till spring.

    1. ... Are you intimating you might be a bear at heart?

    2. I've been told dear I'm like a bear if one tries to wake me in the morning before I'm ready to get up.

  4. Crikey, that's a heck of a difference in price isn't it!
