In just a few (well, a dozen) short days (or days, anyway), comes a truly historic day: the day that George W. Bush is no longer President of the United States.
Won't that be nice? To be able to wake up in the morning and think to oneself, "ah, George W. Bush is no longer President of the United States!". Or to be able to greet people proudly, saying, "Good Morning! George W. Bush is no longer President of the United States!".
It will be a great day for this country, and for the world. And best of all, George W. Bush will no longer be President of the United States!
Often overlooked in the excitement (about the fact that George W. Bush will no longer be President of the United States), is the fact that someone else will be President of the United States. In fact it was officially announced today that the next President will be a former Senator from Illinois, with the unusual name Barack Obama.
Although it may not be as historic and uplifting as the fact that George W. Bush will no longer be President of the United States, the inauguration of Barack Obama will also be a great moment for the country and the world. Millions, even billions, of people will be able to raise their heads and say proudly "not only is George W. Bush no longer President of the United States, but the new President of the United States, arguably the most powerful man on the entire planet, just like me, has ears the size of salad plates".
Enough to bring tears to the eyes, it is.
What else what else? Here's the federal bailout of the porn industry, which is noteworthy. Here's the book I'm reading right now, which is very good, funny, lucid, vintage. Here's another book that just came in the mail (thanks to certain gift certificates I got for Christmas), which has a marvelous title (and pretty good content also). And here's the language I'm learning (well, doing some serious refresher studying of), for the new project at work.
Python's basically Perl, with a confusingly different syntax. Sort of.
And here I am writing in my weblog! Isn't that fun? Everyone in the world can read what I'm writing! Well, everyone with an internet connection and web browser and all. Although the other ones could read it if someone who does have a web browser printed it out and gave it to them to read! Or if they were watching TV and someone pointed the camera at a computer with a web browser that was displaying it! For some reason!
Right now on the television is some program ("program") called I think "Top Chef", involving people cooking. It doesn't seem too painfully bad. I've heard that there are interesting things on television sometimes, but usually when I turn it on there's something painfully bad there. This "Top Chef" one isn't too bad, but it doesn't really rise to the "good use of time" level. Those ones where they like blow stuff up and all (the "Mythbusters" one and the "Dirty Jobs" one, and the "Prototyping weird exploding machines in a big warehouse" one) seem pretty good too (the little boy likes to make the television show those ones), although they take a long time to run.
Cooking people sure use bad words alot. Is it normal, when someone says "asshole" on television, to have the "BLEEP" noise cover up the "hole" part, but not the "ass" part? Seems a bit counterintuitive.
The lamb, apparently, was undercooked.
