We are supposed to get a foot of snow here. All at once. FOMP! Foot of snow in one second.

So, Maggie tells us to sleep in, stay warm with our partners. Stay home, in warm clothing, drinking something warm, in front of the computer. Personally, I like hot lemonade.

This will not happen. Aisha will be up before dawn and off to work. She...

That was a fun couple of days. The only one who really did much better than I expected was Dr. Ben Carson, who may be angling for a VP position, or maybe another elected position. He is not really poised for a presidential run. I do not happen to think that Rand Paul really wants it right now. Ted Cruz gave a great speech, but...

I think Sen. Paul - and Sen. Rubio, for that matter - are trying to decide between running for president or defending their Senate seats.

This is the draw all the fans wanted. What would have happened if the draw was less favorable?

It is a funny old game, as Sir Ian says, and anything can happen, but, down two goals with three away goals against going into the Stade Louis II, this situation is probably not manageable. One might wonder if the man in Denver is so interested in...

I normally do not do the homework, unless I am interested. Like how I would survive The Purge.

Now, we are asked about our favorite books and authors. Unsurprisingly, they are about the fall of the Roman Republic. I do not normally like mysteries, but the SPQR mystery series, by John Maddox Roberts is amazing. These are excellent detective stories, and the political intrigue revolving...

Interesting, I will wish list some of these and check them out when I can.
ericwine:
The McCullough books are amazing.  Her research on the subject probably would've gotten her a PhD if she'd done it in a university.  It would have been interesting to see her take on the Julio-Claudian dynasty and even the Flavians, but alas, 'tis not to be.  (Actually, I think even the last book wasn't originally in her plans!)

We just got home about 15 minutes ago.

I had a great time with Aisha and Wendy tonight. It was a full day, doing all the tourist stuff. A nice lunch, and a good dinner. Then, Wendy took us to a kind of underground club. Go through a few doors, and you reach a lounge which is smoker friendly, and serves very cold beer and...

Almost a month ago, Vi asked me if I had gotten something from Governor Bush, because she had. Sure enough, I found a feeler from Governor Bush. This means he had made up his mind months ago, if he was looking for campaign workers and grunts so early. Other people who had worked on campaigns also got some. Not Kristina, who wrapped herself around Governor...

I am back. Was I ever gone? I suppose somebody noticed that I paid twice last year. Did I miss anything?

I have reliable internet service, once again.

Now what has been going on?

Well, we took the Senate. That is nice. Obama will veto almost everything. That is what "compromise" means to liberals. Do everything they say. It is not the Senate's job...

YAY! Finally. I was going to ask you something too, but I fucking forgot what it was about...oh well. :S

Merry Christmas, and I wish y'all a safe, healthy, and prosperous New Year. I do this now because I will not be around to wish you so later.

I simply do not have reliable internet service. I should have this resolved in the second week of January, so I will rejoin then. I will be going grey for a week or so.

Fare thee...

With Cabo being comprehensively smashed, and in a state of chaos, we need a new place to go.

We chose Lake Tahoe. Mainly because we found a great house to rent. Private, with a large pool, and fenced off to allow the girls to sunbathe nude. We have, so far, been unable to coax Wendy out of her thong yet, but, maybe this time. More...

I had a buddy go there last year, it is quite expensive.....and also in the middle of nowhere.

Well, I suppose we should all watch Braveheart tonight and yell "Freedom!"

Or not. We will know tomorrow.

strongbhoy:
Yeah......my friend is pretty upset about the result. Actually, all of them are. They were all for independence, now Scotland doesn't really exist anymore to most of them.

24 is one of my favorite tv shows, and, with Directv, I can watch several episodes over the weekend, Aisha, while she likes the adventure, and believes that Islam is truly dangerous and antithetical to the ideas the United States was founded upon and stands for today, acknowledges that Muslims are the obvious choice for bad guys on the show. Having gown up in Saudi...
