Is what I have had since Sunday, when Claire and Wendy took a taxi home. Typically, they only stay weekends.

So, it is quite nice to sleep on a full size bed, as opposed to the couch. The problem is I am sleeping along. Aisha is her queen size with Serena. She has been around long enough for Aisha's true face to show, as...

Yesterday afternoon, Megan and I came home to an empty flat. As soon as I unpacked, I went to the grocery store. Having acquired the necessary supplies, started on a big pot of chili. Ohio claims to have chili. They are lying like a Clinton. What they have bears no resemblance to chili. I made half my spicy atomic death ground zero now we're...

Ohio Chili is trying to be Detroit Chili aka Coney Island, and it's not, it's shite. Also --- Toure signed.

Seemed like a good enough speech. Then again, I was drunk. It sounded as if Trump would go a bit on a subject, then anohter, only to return later.

I will read it again on the airplane, No guarantee I will be sober then.

I am ambivalent on whom I will vote for. Not Clinton, though.

So, it is the last night of the convention, and the Meganator and I are not going. We will watch Trump while drinking and eating sandwiches we snagged from the oil and gas industry hospitality suite. I am sure they have a better one for VIPs.

The did have a keg, Miller, and after a few red Solo cups, not showing up tonight seemed like...

Actually, I will post what is really going on in the Politics group.

I had nothing to do on Sunday, but, on Saturday night, most of our little cabal went out for a steak dinner that somebody paid for. I told Megan, and she wanted a steak dinner, and wanted to go to Morton's, her favorite. I managed to get a reservation, very early...

I found today that Megan rented a car.

We are in a nice room at a mediocre hotel. The room included bath robes and slippers, which we can leave on the floor like towels and they will be replaced the next day. We have a mini fridge filled with beer and cider.

I met the others when I got to the luxury hotel all the...

Well, good luck, whatever it is they have you doing.

The previous two times I have been to the convention, I have been supporting candidates. I went with them. Now, I have no candidate, so why am I going? Probably, as the always perceptive @ericwine suggests, it is just a habit.

It turns out, the people who funded me to go to the RNC did not do it out of the goodness of their hearts...

Marching orders?  Now I'm curious what those orders are.  I'm still waiting for a surprise, preferably a pleasant one, but the Rules Committee didn't give me one.  If I were a delegate, I think I'd go home early.  As it is, my picking up a change of affiliation form a few weeks ago seems prescient.  And yes, where the HELL are our flying cars?  

RNC

Getting ready, slowly. for the Republican National Convention. I cannot tell you why I am going. It is just something I do. I am not a delegate. I am just going. Eight years ago, I went with McCain. Four years ago, I went with Romney. This time, I do not know. I did manage to get some funding. Never enough to pay for everything.

So...

Has to be the hand jobs. Or plain old habit? Having the Rodeo Clown (I generally refuse to say his name) as the nominee is about as uninspiring as can be.  Unless you're expecting an entertaining fight over rules changes, delegate abstentions and conscience clauses? (What they should do is require the nominee to have been a Republican for a certain period of time, like ten years.)

It does not need to be pretty. Just win, baby.

bgnckstyle:
Crazy to think that if it was the same format as past tournaments, they wouldn't have made it out of the group stage. 

We hate the British! Yeah! We hate them! We hate them so much we are gong to blow up parts of our own country! That will show them!

On the third, there were a few huge inverse stick burning pits. The people here have hired a barbecue team, and these pits have seen the better days. We grilled steaks, hamburgers, hot dogs, bratwurst, and miscellaneous...

Not going to talk about much right now.

Gliding on the highways in Aisha's Rover. Her's was one of the few wired at that time, and she has had to have it tweaked a few times. If you do not get this, why would you care?

Headed to a farm in south eastern Virginia. It is sparsely populated in the area, unincorporated (as...
