Anybody else catch the steaming of the Rice? Boxer raked her over the goals – Kerry did alright too – though he still remains so damned long-winded. I don’t believe anything Condi Rice says at all. And the constant allusions to her special relationship with the President make me sort of disgusted. I’m thinkin it’s less she’s his lover than she’s a spitting image of Mother Barbara. Right? Don’t all the stories about what a stern, tough mom Barbara was kinda fit Condi’s angrier-than-you persona? And I loved all the callers on C-SPAN saying that she’ll have problems because she’s a woman and some countries don’t like women (not continuing their logic with the idea that probably those same countries don’t like blacks). And why should that affect things?
I am determined not to watch the premier of American Idol. Every year I say I’m not going to watch until the final four weeks because until then it’s too frustrating to watch the truly talented not make it and the hideously awful slip through (John Patrick Can’t-Sing-For-Shit and that Sinatra-Wannabe-Redhaired-Dork, I’m looking at you).
Good God, I just got up from a long winter’s nap. Kitty slept next to me the whole time. It is very cold out and very windy and I think I might go to the cafe to wake myself up.
Got my resume on Hotjobs, Dice and Monster today. My boss said he’d take a look at my resume for me. Going to the doc tomorrow to get all my prescriptions re-upped for another 3 months.
Got 2 web design gigs in the hopper already – one has the potential to be a slow-burn over time. Got a call today from a longtime coaching colleague that may have a web project management gig for me as well – probably wouldn’t materialize for a while. Plus, I still have one client in the UK that hasn’t been able to get payments to me for a completed project.
I had the humidifier going during my nap so I’ve got this tropical oasis feel to the air in here (accented by the relentless radiators).
