1. I’m tired of this mortgage mess. Not only has it wreaked havoc on my business, but it is rippling throughout the economy and looks like we will be having an effect for years to come. Since it seems that many of those who have been foreclosed on had adjustable rate mortgages that adjusted upward and out of reach…wouldn’t it have made sense for these now failing banks and brokerage houses to simply FIX those mortgages at a rate the homeowners COULD afford? Certainly they wouldn’t make as much money, but making any money is better than losing billions.
2. Part of this weekend’s festivities included an evening at a strip club. Actually, a quite nice one, with the best looking entertainers I’d ever seen. And STRONG STRONG drinks. I apparently told every entertainer I tipped, sometimes multiple times, that it was my birthday. Whether I hoped to get some special attention from that, or just assure them that a night in a strip bar wasn’t my usual thing, I’m not sure. But there’s the point of this morning’s poster–no, the police weren’t involved, and I don’t believe I shit myself either, but I was certainly inebriated.
3. I saw on the news that Paris Hilton’s dog (or maybe it was two dogs) was killed by a coyote. Sad, I’m sure. But what sort of society are we that such a story is news??
4. The amount of political email I get is understandably high. The amount of completely untrue, half true, and out of context crap included in them is unbelievable. And passed from people who really ought to know better. I’ve said it before, but it’s frightening that people use the power of their vote and don’t have a damned clue who or what they are voting for. Either get informed, or just sit your ass at home in November, mmm kay?
