Bluntness

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

Leaning

Okay, I felt tired so I went to bed at a little after 8 last evening.  I've been a bit ill, you know?  On Christmas Eve I hit the sack around the same time and slept for over 10 hours.  That didn't happen last night.  About 0245 this morning I woke up.  Going back to sleep?  Wasn't going to happen.  That's a pretty clear indicator I am on the mend.  I may try for a little catnap before heading in this morning, but otherwise I'd say I'm up for the duration.
I saw the Idiot Jerk went to Iran yesterday.  They were calling it a trip to a war zone.  They must be right.  He took Melanoma along as a shield.  Of course, his base was delighted.  How quickly they've forgotten Veteran's Day.  Short term memory loss... what else can you expect from the nearly brain dead?
And the stock market went up, too.  No doubt one last flight before it finally crashes.
As I said, I do get to work today.  In fact, I work for the next three... and then I'm off for 3.  I think I'm going to paint the staircase.  I'd bought the paint back in July, some sort of minty thingy color which should go well with the Juniper Berry gray / green / blue of my dining room.
Okay, and there's a section in the new book which revolves around a marble statue in the Louvre.  One of the things I've been doing during my viral infection is scouring their statuary, trying to find the one perfect piece.  I've narrowed it down to two:

The Wounded Galatian

or...

The Borghese Gladiator
The Gladiator is actually a 'warrior' who's missing his sword and shield (broken off centuries ago).  I'm leaning toward the Galatian.  Curly hair, you know?

  1. but the gladiator looks more "endowed" with manly charms. and the impotus only went to iraq cause he was shamed into doing it.

    1. I guess you saw, just about everybody in the world either saw him flyover, or knew he was flying over...

  2. The Galatian. Hands down. I usually go for the sturdy. And Cheeto was shamed into going to visit the troops. Also, they have sold audiences with him at mar a lago for NYE so he uses the trip as smokescreen. Grifter.

    1. Yeah, he was shamed into it, and made sure everybody in the world knew where he was going

  3. The Galatian seems a little more, shall we say,"interested".

    1. So you think the gladiator a bit defensive?

  4. I'm going with the assumption that the Galatian is a grower.
