Football with the girls away

One of the great pleasures of life is to watch football when your wife is out shopping with her girlfriends.  You know she won't be back any time soon.  I got my writing done early.  

Georgia plays at 3:30 against Tennessee, always a good one.

Sam's club

God is on the side of the big packages.  And Sam's has BIG packages!  It's so good for having more than you really need.  The Albany Sam's, though, does not have a liquor store.  No good!  Back at the library I got ost but found a favorite Agatha Christie.

Odd incident in DC

No real idea what that was all about.  The Congress is an excrescence on the American posterior.  Debt ceiling and government shutdown related??!!  Duh!

Shutting down the government

The oddest thing about shutting down the government is how little difference it makes to anyone.  Gee, you'd think most of those six-figure jobs weren't necessary!

The political gamesmanship is appalling.  Everybody's trying to be a hero to a particular constituency.  This particular shutdown is a perfect storm, coming as it does in the first days of Obozocare and in the middle of the debt ceiling debate.  Hmm, maybe all these things are related!?

October finally

Stayed up watching Monday night Football until almost midnight.  Then up at 4:03, which I thought was 5:03, because, oh, let's say I just hope I remember to change it tonight because I really don't want to get up at 3:03 tomorrow, thinking it's 4:03.

Good busy day, despite the tired flashes at the backs of my eyes.  3000 words, too.  Not as hard as I thought.  Not deathless prose, perhaps, but the living word.

It's obozocare day!  And the mountain labored and brought forth - a little spinning circle with an arrow on it.  And millions of lives are saved because they can't go to the doctor who, through sheer reductionism, would kill them.

End of the month

Those ends of months come around so slowly!  Only 18 more until retirement.  Putting myself back together.  Martha sent an email from Leiden, NL. September successful, though, in a couple of ways.
Found my E. Tufte graphic design book.  Lots of info AND white space.  Makes me want to design a book.
