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

They want to burn it down

 So, did everybody say goodbye to Daylight Savings Time?  I know I kind of did...'nt.  I have three clocks in my house that need to jump forward and, as of right now, they have yet to jump.  The electronic clocks, my phone, my tablet, the computers?  They've already moved into the future.  Did it really effect me that much?  Not really, other than the fact that it's going to get darker an hour earlier.  I hate that.  But, being semi-retired and home for most days, I don't think that's going to bother me.  This morning, after my alarm went off, I slept in for an additional 30 minutes, so you could say that I'm half way there.

The store was busy when I got there yesterday, but then it slowed down.  I managed to get a measure.  That should keep management happy.  I hit my sales goal for the week.  Interesting little fact.  My sales are on $10K shy of one of the full time specialists, so either I'm really good, or he's really bad.  I'll let you decided.

While I'm working through the final draft of The Body in Motion, I've already taken numerous notes on the next book, tentatively called The Body in History (I think Dave suggested that title).  I can tell you that it's going to be set in Greece (History), and it's looking like it's probably going to be dealing with identity theft, of course how I have no idea how that's going to play out.  For those who don't know, this is how it works:  know your ending and then build backwards.  Never lay your foundation without knowing what the building is going to look like when it's finished.

So, when I told people it was the colors in my new granite countertop than it was the pattern, some of them gave me an odd look; surely you want a beautiful pattern.  Nope.  Who cares about the pattern if the colors don't coordinate with the backsplash.  I think these colors go well.

I did get a hearty chuckle about the gag orders that are being placed and paused on the Orange Anus, and an even bigger laugh when Elise Stefanik jumped into the fray, bad mouthing Engoron's clerk.  It's not that they don't think about the damage they're doing, the truth is they just don't care.  They just need to be in charge.  As someone said, they don't care if they burn down the house even if they don't have a plan to rebuild.  It's not about rebuilding.  To them, it's all about burning it down. 


  1. Elise Stefanik thinks she's got a Veep shot if Thing 45 isn't in cuffs soon.

    1. And even if he isn't his chances are winning are slim to none.

  2. Can't believe you're already thinking about your NEXT book!!! Just thinking about my next blog post does me in!

    1. I'm not only thinking, but taking notes as well. I usually don't think about my blog until I sit down at the computer because usually there are too many other things racing around in my brain.
