I actually talked to the delivery people about my desk, trying to find out when it would be arriving. I have been upgraded to White Glove - Premier, though they didn't seem to know. With this level the desk will be unpacked and checked for damages before delivery, and then upon delivery I, too, will check for damages.
Overnight the temps only dropped down to 11 (F). I feel a warming trend coming on. For those who don't know, we are approaching the halfway point for winter. Yippee! Though, the forecast calls for 1 - 2 inches of snow today. No problem!
And I saw this yesterday. Apparently Republicans are beginning to jump ship, or maybe I should just say change parties. This is a bit of a problem for a party which desperately wants to believe they represent a majority of Americans. They don't. In fact, anytime statistics are brought up they whine "main stream media." The believe "main stream media" corrupts the truth. They would rather you read the Drudge Report, or Breitbart, and watch Fox and Friends. Those are outlets which spout out the Ultra Conservative viewpoints they love so dearly, and loving something dearly allows you to pass judgment on that which you dislike or even hate.
Bloomberg posted a report card on the Idiot Jerk's first 2 years in office. His record is terrible when compared to the previous 3 presidents. For those who don't know, Bloomberg has a niche audience. Not everybody enjoys reading financial information, some find it too dry, other see it as simply boring. Conservatives, however, see Bloomberg as "Main Stream Media" because it doesn't kiss the ass of the Idiot Jerk in the White House. Of course, I do believe Michael Bloomberg has also called the Idiot Jerk a 'losing sack of shit,' which is in no way going to endear him, or his news organization, in their hearts.
And finally, a bit of fluff. Yesterday I began shining the silver candelabra, and while I was out in the kitchen polishing away tarnish I heard the dogs playing with something. Grabbing my phone, I headed into the dining room. There I discovered them with their big, yellow, squeaky duck. Of course they stopped the minute they saw me.
It was like I was invading their space.
