Alliterative Thursday

So I'm watching footage from CPAC (Conservative Political Action Conference) and this crazed fellow (Jason Mattera of Young America's Foundation) is yelling about "get your government off my freedom!" and I couldn't help but wonder, if these conservatives REALLY want Americans to be free and to not have government running our lives, then why won't they let me get married?

I don't mind people being conservative, it's just that this brand of conservative doesn't mean "freedom for Americans," it means "you have to think like me and dress like me and be like me or you're a Socialist freak." And none of them have yet to prove to me that they even understand what socialism IS and what that means, especially these youngsters who never spent a single moment living through the Cold War.

I decided to try and give up wine for Lent, and I already want a glass (naturally). But I'm having tea at the moment. And it appears my pretty Chinese Year of the Dragon tea mug has a small crack in it.

Some humorous Tweets:

I'm calling you out @NathanFillion. Your spaceship vs my spaceship. Last one to the crab nebula gets the beers in. Spacedock, 1 hour.

NathanFillion

Yo, @simonpegg, be reasonable! My ship was a filming set, while the Enterprise is obviously real. Perhaps a drinking contest?

@NathanFillion You're on. To be honest, somebody keyed my nacelles so the old lady's in the shop. I'll get the first round in. Romulan ale?


Since I was out of town last weekend, I have fallen WAY behind on Tivo again (I had it pretty well cleaned out the weekend before, but didn't have a chance to keep up with it during the week). At least during the Olympics there's only a few new shows on and nothing on NBC. I haven't watched anything at all this year, although I MEANT to see the Lindsey Vonn run (I'd heard about the big win on NPR).

Today they announced that they're going to use a "deployment" strategy at work, which basically boiled down to "we need to lay people off, but we really don't want to do that, so we're going to take people from overstaffed areas to fill in understaffed areas." It's actually not a bad plan, but many people in Administrative Services don't really want to go anywhere else. Fortunately, our unit is not one of the ones impacted, so it doesn't really affect me at all (only if I WANT to go, in which case my position would be filled sideways from one of the impacted units). What it boiled down to for me was a lot of time wasted in meetings, leading to needing to stay almost an hour overtime. Woot.

Made meatloaf tonight. Came out good, if a little overdone (started working on stuff with Mom and it stayed in the oven too long). I added cumin this time. Yummy! With green beans and nommy onion-dill rolls.

Science report on the news today said that just one more hour of sleep can reduce chances of heart attacks.

Adopt one today! * Adopt one today! * Adopt one today! * Adopt one today! * Adopt one today!
