Go read Jay Nordlinger on our esteemed president getting a little comeuppance (though I’m certain he’s too deluded to realize it, and it’s not like the mainstream media would point such a thing out). On the Middle East, Barack Obama was heard to utter “I’ll be honest with you. This is just really hard.” Brilliant, Mr. President! I mean, what biting analysis! Shall we thumb back through all of the uninformed bile you spat at George W. Bush over the Middle East? Wouldn’t that be fun? I think I’ll make that a future post.
I’m spending a cheat tonight. The first red meat I will eat in 2010 will come in the form of some Papa Murphy’s five-meat stuffed pizza, and hell yes, I’m looking forward to it. A big nasty grease bomb pizza was really the only red meat item I badly craved last month.
Speaking of my waistline, my two miles daily is going to have to come gradually, because it’s hitting me much harder than I anticipated. I’m taking baseline measurements this week, and scaling up 10% weekly until I get there. Probably this will mean about 1.4 miles daily next week, then 1.54 the week after that, then 1.7… It’s all about making it stick, and I think pounding it out this week would have had a lot of resentment/rebellion potential.
My poor, beloved Crimson Tide had to settle for the #3 or #5 class signed this year, depending on which bunch of nitwits you ask. As BamaDan pointed out, when you’re loaded everywhere, you slip a couple of notches because a bunch of incoming redshirts are guaranteed. These are fine, fine problems to have.
Someone left a wooden cross leaning on one of the rocks at a pagan worship circle, recently constructed and opened by the Air Force. This is a hate crime. Yawn.
