Random Thoughts & Questions

How much lower do you think Bush will fall in the polls? He's now at 29%- a new low.

Why hasn't some fast food joint come out with a sugar-free milkshake? Is it too much to ask?

My friend Elaine came by last night with her dog Diego. My 15-month-old kitten Nick spotted him and actually puffed up to three times his normal size.

The County Tax Assessor raised the value of my house by more than $12,000. I plan to protest in person with a photo array showing just how much they overestimated it. This is one time when Photoshop is worth lots more than just a way to make BushCo look even more evil and stupid.

You know it's time to go to bed when you try to comment on someone's blog and it takes three tries to type in the correct secret code.

I watched American Idol the other night for the first time in years. It's truly a horrible show. I think Paula Abdul has rapid cycling bipolar disorder, and those other two judges are a couple of tools.

My cousin John in Los Angeles called last year, begging me to find seeds for him to plant a chili pequin bush. The chilis are very hot and about the size of a raisin. I bought a few plants, hoping to harvest the chilis, dry them and send him the seeds. Trouble is, I used 20-20-20 plant food on them and the chilis turned out to be the size of smallish jalapenos. I wonder if the seeds will turn out freakishly large chilis when he plants them?

With gas prices so high, local commercials for car dealers have quintupled, especially those dealers specializing in trucks and SUVs. Anyone who'd buy a full size truck or SUV at this point has to be certifiably insane.

Why can't scientists create a breed of cat that never gets bigger than a three-month-old kitten?

I got a combination laser level & stud finder for my birthday. So far, all I've used it for is a totally sensational cat toy.

Mother's Day is Sunday, but my mother is so old her mind is slipping. She thinks I'm her little sister, so I hope the Mother's Day card I got her doesn't confuse her.

I think common ivy could be adapted for use in war. The renegade ivy in my yard could completely ensconce a platoon of tanks in one day.

I wish I liked country music so I could support the Dixie Chicks by buying their CD's. Lead singer Natalie Maines has bigger balls than white trash Toby Keith could ever dream of having. Besides, he looks like the type who'd have incredibly stinky feet.

Some music mogul needs to plan a Woodstock-sized, televised concert that concentrates on condemning the Bush administration and the war. Either that, or someone should produce a "We Are the World" style video with lyrics that skewer the hell out of this bunch of crooks we are stuck with in Washington.

I love this post of yours! Every one of your random thoughts could be the basis of its own article.

Another of my "Mary Reviews" was posted last night. This was the lengthy one I was afraid wouldn't make it:

NOT "Sisters: Reloaded", May 11, 2006
Reviewer: Mary Jane (Casper, WY) - See all my reviews

Gotta run. Errands to run, money to burn in my gas tank. Y'all have a nice weekend, and Happy Mothers Day to you all! Go Kinky Friedman!

I haven't a truckload of country music, but I find the Dixie Chicks to be wonderful-- incredible instrumentalists,great harmonists, witty writers and song selecters... what more do you need? I have 3 of their cds...

I had a lover who used to punish me when I pissed her off by playing country music CD's when we were riding in her vehicle.
On the way back from the coast once, I was tortured by non-stop Willie Nelson and Dixie Chicks.
I associate it with rednecks, trailer trash, drunks and punitive, passive aggressive women.

I don't.

Come to Texas, honey.
One night in a honky tonk bar and you'll see what I mean.

Wouldn't it make you feel better to place a bet when/if Bush's ratings drop to the lowest in US history? I'll take a bet he'll drop below Nixon and Carter before the end of September.

Those chili pods will grow regular size chilis, don't worry.

Didn't Tony Snow's first press conference cheer you up tremendously? And the whole Dusty Foggo thing is fabulous.

And now that you're my aunt instead of my sister, I'll make you a big ole sugarless shake for Mother's Day.

Karen Zipdrive said...

Hey sis/niece--
If Rove gets indicted as the rumors are indicating, I'll bet Bush's ratings sink to the low 20's by July 4th.
Tony Snow is a horse's ass. He acted like a rank amateur during his debut. He's gonna hate this new job.
And Dusty Foggo may turn out to be Dusted Faggo by the time this scandal shakes out.
Hey, I got a DVD of Brokeback Mountain for my birthday. You think Mom would like to watch it?

On another note:
If Bush doesn't pay attention to polls that reflect what the American people think, why does he want to tap our phones and read our e-mail?
I can make it simple for him.
He can call me and I'll be happy to tell him exactly what I think of him.
He's got my number, I'm sure.
