Holy Crap! It's Tuesday, and I slept in, and not because I stayed up late killing vampires in Evil West, or because I was watching TV. I hit the sack around 11. I only got up once to let Biggie out. He did decide to sleep upstairs last night, just couldn't make up his mind if he wanted to sleep on the bed, or on the floor. The floor won.
Outside, it's foggy as hell and rainy heavily. This afternoon the forecast is for breezy conditions. Hopefully, things will dry up. Temps are supposed to peak in the mid 60s (F) sometime tonight, and the start to fall into a more winter like patter.
And yesterday at the store? I was busy, busy, busy: over $7000 in sales; I cut blinds for several customers, and cut carpet as well. My shift was pretty much non-stop customers. That's fine. Busy makes time fly. I have no problem with that. Of course, yesterday was a holiday for most people.
Before work, yesterday, I took a ride around Lake Annecy, which I do believe is in Treader's neck of the woods. Actually, I had to ride 4 miles on a bike route next to a highway before I finally reached the Lake.
And, of course, today the Republicans take control of the House of Representatives by a very slim majority. I laughed yesterday when I saw pictures of McCarthy's minions moving his desk into the Speaker's office. And again, I chuckled this morning after I saw that it make take several days of voting before the Republicans manage to elect a Speaker. During this time, the Democrats will wait, filing their nails, playing Wordle, and watching YouTube videos, as well as Unifying. That's the important fact. The Republican majority is so slim they will need Democrats to pass any sort of agenda. The Republican party is in such disarray, they have no idea who deep a political recession they are in.
And, of course, there is the George Santos humiliation. Brasil has reactivated the criminal complaint against him. He is alleged to have written checks from a checkbook he stole, which is a crime in both Brazil and the United States, which means, should the Brazilian government ask him to be extradited, our government would comply. Of course, this whole thing makes Republicans look terrible because they stayed silent; without his vote, their slim majority is even slimmer.
Oh, and indictments are coming.
Oh yes. The rain. It's rainy here too and it does not look like it's gonna clear before the afternoon. Oh well.ReplyDelete
And it seems McCarthy moved into the Speaker Suite but things are iffy... Infighting is always fun.
As for Santos? He'll start working. He's a Repug. He's got no shame. Hopefully it'll be for short.
It wouldn't surprise me if they have him resign after they decide who's going to be Speaker of the House. One side is going to need his vote.Delete
Why does this whole thing make me feel like I am watching a really cheap tela novela and I have a strong urge to just change the channel.ReplyDelete
It's like watching a train wreck in slow motion knowing you're never, ever going to unsee it.Delete
Ha ha, you found the "newly completed" cycle path that I couldn't find this time last year - which is when my friend and I ended up on the vertical hike from hell instead of the nice flat bicycle path. And you're right, that's about 30 minutes from me. Don't laugh but I'm looking into getting myself a bike and that's EXACTLY where I want to be cycling - nice and flat!ReplyDelete
The entire ride is a full 22 miles long which would be a heck of a hike. I like cycling because it doesn't stress or your knee joints your ankles, and you can do it sitting down.Delete
Empty G keeps Tweeting that today is the day the GOP takes over and I reply back, 'You can't even agree on a Speaker.'ReplyDelete
So much for Control.
I don't know if you saw it or not but Ted Lieu showed up with a bag of popcorn.Delete
