I just got in from the airport at around 2am this morning after a cross country flight  (and boy are my arms tired).

I was already cranky due to having to leave California and come back home to North Cackalacky in the first place.  Then I hit a snag in LA traffic and didn’t make the first leg of my flight.  Well technically I did make it, but it was too late check my bag so I said screw that, I’ve been down that road before.  Not a chance in hell.

So I re-booked a later flight on stand by, and did make it onto that flight.  Turned out that my connection into RDU was the same flight as before, so I got home at the same time I would have anyway.  But it was a pain.

Then I couldn’t sleep once I got home.  Worse yet, neither could Mom.  And she would not stop talking.

Would.  Not.  Stop.  Talking.

Then the electricity went out for no apparent reason overnight and screwed some stuff up.  Finally I fell asleep around 4am, give or take.  And then when I woke up this morning, my alarm clock said it was already past noon because I guess the power came back on while I was sleeping.  I thought to myself there’s no way in hell I slept until 12:50 in the afternoon!!!!  I jumped up and started running around like a mad man trying to get dressed ASAP and go get my shit done after having overslept…..badly.

Then I looked at the other clock.  The battery operated clock.  6:45am.

(sigh)

I thought about going back to bed, but by then I was too jazzed up from having panicked about the oversleeping thing.  Oh well.

So in conclusion…

I’m tired, sad, cranky, will not have access to legal weed for at least several months (though I did smuggle a small amount home in my carry on….LAX needs new drug sniffing dogs apparently)…. and oh so so so so happy to be home.

And I’m taking the low hanging fruit this week.

IT’S FLAG DAY!!!!!!!!

Flag Day

(from Wikipedia)

In the United States, Flag Day is celebrated on June 14. It commemorates the adoption of the flag of the United States on June 14, 1777 by resolution of the Second Continental Congress. The United States Army also celebrates the U.S. Army birthday on this date; Congress adopted “the American continental army” after reaching a consensus position in the Committee of the Whole on June 14, 1775.

In 1916, President Woodrow Wilson issued a proclamation that officially established June 14 as Flag Day; on August 3, 1949, National Flag Day was established by an Act of Congress. Flag Day is not an official federal holiday. Title 36 of the United States Code, Subtitle I, Part A, CHAPTER 1, § 110 is the official statute on Flag Day; however, it is at the president’s discretion to officially proclaim the observance. On June 14, 1937, Pennsylvania became the first U.S. state to celebrate Flag Day as a state holiday, beginning in the town of Rennerdale.  New York Statutes designate the second Sunday in June as Flag Day, a state holiday.

NCAA Baseball College World Series

Nothing tonight (sigh).

One bracket starts tomorrow, one starts Sunday.  SEC seriously representing this year.  ACC sort of showed up.  Sort of.  B1G and Big12 barely limped in.

Texas Tech or Mississippi State are my hopes to take Omaha.  Neither will.

Sadly, it will likely be Vanderbilt.  And while Vanderbilt is generally non-offensive to me in other sports….in baseball, they can just go ahead and die already.  If ‘Ville can get past them and into the winner’s bracket of bracket 2, they’ve got a puncher’s chance.  I’d be OK with that too.

Frankly, after the season they had, it is a crime against humanity that UCLA did not make it to Omaha.

 

Fuck you, Michigan.

 

No Pole Required But It IS  Optional

Enjoy…

 

OK, that’s definitely enough to get the little general to stand up and salute.

That’s All, Go Home

Fun Fact:  I own three different American Flags.  Yet I do not own a single flag pole.

That seems kinda stupid, huh?

Anywhoooo….

I’m out.

Love ya’s.

One Last “Nugget”

If you are too afraid of dying, you’ll never rise up and truly live.

Live your life.

NO REGERTS!!!!!!

Here’s a flag I stole from the Washington Monument in the middle of the night when I was 14 years old.

At the time, the flags were attached with a standard flagpole cleat as found in front of any school, although much higher.

Flags had encircled the monument for over 100 years at the time I liberated it. Two weeks later, lock boxes were installed over all 50 of the flagpole cleats. Today the poles have no cleats. Thank me, folks.

If you’re telling me impeachment is a bad idea because most Americans aren’t paying close enough attention to the impeachable offenses Trunp committed, then isn’t it fair to assume most Americans won’t even pay close attention to the impeachment proceedings themselves?

I’m firmly convinced that there aren’t enough Democrats in the House who would vote to impeach. It’s pretty clear to me that pretty much everyone in Congress on both sides isn’t worth shit and most Americans don’t care. Fuck it. Let this whole fucking shithole country burn.

To be fair, the exercises seem like the only non-surgical option there is for people who want to lose face fat because that seems to be the last to go. Not that anyone is losing weight.

scotchnaut

Face fat is the first to go. The stuff around the middle is the last. If you get with the program you’ll see I’m right.

I only just turned this game on, but from what I’ve seen so far I assume Brazil only fielded four players (including goalie) in the first half?
