Get it off your chest day

Aside from the wars, the bush administration, Foley-gate and all things political, what’s bugging you right now?

Well, I just read that now John McCain is blaming Clinton for North Korea's nuclear weapons. When are these Republicans going to practice what they preach and take some responsibility for their own actions, or lack thereof? I mean, Bush refuses to negotiate, apparently the Republicans see that as appeasement, so instead of working to stop Kim Jong II's nuclear ambitions, they do nothing, nada, zip, zilch, zero. Clinton's been out of office for six years you clowns, be adult, take responsibility and do something other than find a way to blame your policy failures on a guy no longer in office. That's what infuriates me now.

Thanks for letting me get that off my chest.

Well PoP you pretty much eliminated everything that is bugging me right now. Other than the the topics you eliminated I am pretty happy.
I'm a little bugged about the amount of travel I am having to do now and the lack of time for my hobbies. I can feel the resentment when I step out into my garden at home. My potter's wheel won't speak to me and my golf clubs are hiding and won't show themselves. Nothing monumental but sometimes you would just like to do what you want to do and not what you have to do.

Oh boy...........I get to vent. Trying to be positive on ones blog during this time of uncertainty is always a challenge. I think I have, so far, been able to put forward calming pix and reassuring words. I will continue to tell true stories of my past and present that show the world in a favorable light...but as long as you asked;......Social Security cut my benefits for the next year by 250 bucks a month because they said I made too much money BEFORE I took retirement. The Teamsters, of which I was a member in good standing for 15 years said I cannot draw a pension til I'm 65 so I dont have that money coming in either. Those are about the only two things I can complain about. My free perks are still there..........The sun rises every day and so do I. I am able to walk and talk and take part in society and coffee still tastes good. Life is good and maybe getting better....in November. Thanx for asking; I feel much better now.

Water heater bit the dust last night. Nothing like a Ho bath to start the day. And had to crawl under Mrs. P's car to extract a limb she picked up when she went off roading to avoid an idiot on the way home last night. And it looks like rain for the Prince's soccer game tonight. Sigh.

Mornin' pop- thanks for asking.

In addition to what you said, POP it sucks to work for a medium sized manufacturer that is heavily dependent on the auto industry. Not exactly a secure feeling. The booming bush economy isn't evident here in Michigan. Being a supervisor to a bunch of immature 40 to 60yr olds isn't a real joy either.
But life is what you make it, and today I am looking forward to traveling with my Daughter to watch T-Bone kick some ass in eigth grade fottball. and yes, I DO tailgate at 8thy grade football games.

aside from the political? er... can i please at least start there? can i please whine and moan about how much it sucks to not have anyone to vote FOR in this blood-red district? 'cause you know, being reduced to voting against someone is really giving me a dull throb in the back of my head anytime i think about it.

other than that, i'm hugely pissed at CNN's early morning blurb about the woman in Virginia who's trying to dissolve her adoption of a very troubled teenager. This story is so complex and heartbreaking, and they devoted maybe fifteen seconds to it - with two words of substance: "abuse" and "bipolar." they gave a longer report a bit later, but most folks here don't tune in for the long haul. it was another way to catch the attention of the masses for a half a second, another way to reinforce the misconception that bipolars are unwanted. being bipolar itself, that pisses me off to no end.

blogged about it yesterday. still miffed today. plus, you asked. (thanks for that, by the way!)

Bugging me? other than the NSA, you mean?

Microsoft's BOHICA plan for delivering IE 7 to you whether you want it or not.

Not having had work for the first seven months of the year. That pretty well sucked.

My perpetually aching feet.

Other than that, paraphrasing a famous fictional mobster, it's nothing personal, it's just... no, not business... it's just living in a growing fascist dictatorship that bugs me.

That I can't work from home, and actually have to drive to the office every day. I want to work from home, I can work just as well from home. But no. I have to drive to the office.

divajood, working from home has its good and bad points. For one thing, your work is always right there... always. And whoever you're working for knows right where to find you. There's no "work" and "home"; there's only "here." On the other hand, I wouldn't trade for your situation. Right now, the sun is shining on me from my office-at-home window; the refrigerator is 10 steps away, ...

Not much, really. I'm too tired to be mad anyway. I got so mad last month that some people are still leaving me alone -- which of course, reduces the chances of something or someone bugging me.

Funny how that works...

In general, American apathy to anything that does not pierce into our jaded attention span. Dafur for example, along with a Congress lacking such a backbone that prevents it from stopping our civil liberties from eroding away. Heaven forbid we have to devote a minute to something other than the Oscars, Superbowl, or down here a NASCAR race.

I can't believe we have 27 more days to the election, and the heat has been turned up on everything. My stress level is already soaring through the roof, and there's going to be more to handle everyday between now and then. I dread what the republicans will come up with next.

Aside from political... let's see...

I hate the way they have an extra round of Baseball playoffs now, instead of the regular season, then one playoff series for each league, then the World Series. The playoffs drag on too long, and there are more opportunites for the Cardinals to break my heart and lose (those dirty birds).

Also Christmas is coming (starts the day after Halloween now, doesn't it?). Instead of 2 months of humbugging I'm now up to 3. Give me a break.

Well, I wouldn't complain, but when you ask so nicely...

My boss is being a grumpy old man. I am tempted to put a bottle of ExLax on his desk when he's not looking. Yes, it's that bad.

My feet are swollen more than usual, my cough won't go away and don't even ask me about blood sugar or blood pressure numbers, lest I become a USPS employee.

It's raining. Again. And cold.

I want to get a pedicure, but I'm afraid that with these swollen-up ballons on the ends of my legs, the pedicurist will run screaming.

And there is no sugar-free chocolates left in my desk.

I'm going to toss the rotten apple here, and say the thing that bugs me most is Democrats refusing to go along with implementing Mexican border security. This should be done before there is any other guest worker program or earned legalization program. But the Democrats won't do it becasue they are hoping this policy will translate into Hispanic votes. This is what will cost them either this election, or will minimize the gains they do make. Or, if they don't change this, it will be one of the main things, if not the main thing, that will get them defeated in 08, even if they do win this time around.

Well my ex wife is a real POS, my youngest daughter is supposed to be taking some meds for anxiety and she wont make her take them. It is so frustrating to try and implement something at one house and not have someone else do the same at their house.

A freaking Psychiatrist told her she has to take the med everyday! What more does it take to get this woman to listen to a professionial?

The general level of anxiety seems to be sickening me. Hot flashes. Worries about my elderly mom, who lives with us, in addition to the blasted outside world. That's a painful sandwich of concerns...
