Remember When I Used to Have a Blog?

a) Ha! 6 months + 1 day since my last post.

b) I am once more a resident of Maryland.

c) Unemployment would be a lot more fun if I knew what/when/where my next job would be.

d) It turns out that a lot of the things I would like to do with my time while unemployed cost money.


On the other hand, it seems to be Spring down here in the south land.

Which is nice.

Political Snark

Firstly, for the Buffy fans out there -- take a look at this recent AmericaBlog post. Is Freddie Thompson a Gentleman?
And then read this little snippet from Digby:
I do realize that I loathe Bush on a visceral level and always have, so I can't say that my impressions of him as person are particularly objective. He is a personality type I can't stand --- his privileged, macho arrogance and nasty, sophomoric social game of primitive dominance are about the least appealing characteristics I can think of in a man. Even if he weren't a complete idiot, which he is, he'd still be an asshole.
Sums it up for me quite nicely.
Oh yeah, things are okay in planty land these days....

Treacherous = Worthwhile

For good pruning leads to good flowering.

In which I do my spiderman impersonation whilst pruning the Wisteria floribunda.

Actually, there is an incredible amount of stuff in bloom right now. You should all come and visit me. And I suppose I should be posting photos, or something. We'll see.

Mostly this whole thing made me laugh.

But I am now forced to revise my previous opinion of Boston Mayor Menino.
Actually, I had no previous opinion of Menino.
But I do now.

What a douche. A tremendous douche. Money quote:
“It is outrageous, in a post 9/11 world, that a company would use this type of marketing scheme. I am prepared to take any and all legal action against Turner Broadcasting and its affiliates for any and all expenses incurred during the response to today’s incidents. Boston will look to coordinate our efforts going forward with Cambridge, Somerville and any other affected agencies.”
Deval Patrick is smelling a little douchey too.
Best commentary I've seen comes from August J. Pollak.
If you're all lucky there will be another post in the next three months.

Hey, I made it in less than two months this time...

Also, it goes without saying: Elections. Hooray.

More Important Things To Do?

You can usually tell that I have something more important to do when I do the things that normal people do all the time.

If Gimpadelic is doing the dishes, he probably ought to be doing some research.

If Gimpadelic is folding the laundry, he probably ought to be writing an essay.

And if Gimpadelic is blogging, he probably has a plant quiz he ought to be studying for...

But let it not be said that I am dead, mute, incarcerated, or otherwise incapacitated. And most of all, let it not be said that I am no longer a blogger.
