Got up this morning, put on The Velvet Underground's song "Sunday Morning", then The Rolling Stones' Exile On Mainstreet album-- because, you know, sometimes a guy's just gotta hear Exile On Main Street-- sat down to a hearty, healthy breakfast, and reflected on yesterday.
I worked a double yesterday. The lunch shift was great, the dinner shift even better, despite the fact that one of the sous chefs didn't show up. I made an insane amount of money. I'm working another double today-- it should be a shorter one.
While I've been away at work, it seems that the President has gone back to using Vietnam as an analogy for Iraq, like he was a few months ago. A lot of you think this is bad news. No-- Vietnam's a great analogy: the U.S. propping up a corrupt, incompetent government that won't come to terms with the opposition, knowing that the U.S. President will continue to feed U.S. soldiers into the meatgrinder to support the government-in-name-only in order to avoid admitting that he was wrong about the entire escapade-- yep, that sounds about right to me.
In the meantime, perhaps we should be planning the Iraq War Memorial.
I also saw the headline that housing prices are doing what everyone said couldn't possibly happen-- they're actually dropping.
Are you better off today than you were eight years ago?
My god, I hate these people.
I start my Biology class at 8 am tomorrow. I was worried about where I was going to get the time to run out and get a spiral notebook for my class-- I'd forgotten to get one this week. I didn't need to worry-- my stepdaughter got me one yesterday. I've got great kids.
