Collected thoughts and unfinished masterpieces from the past week or so, that are MUST reading, that probably should have been tweets, and that show the true depths of the disorganized mind.
MSNBC: I like NOW with Alex Wagner. Haven’t watched the new cable show they just hyped, but I want to watch The Newsroom on HBO. I need to automate the process of turning the TV on and off so it is off unless I’ve scheduled a program into it that I really want to watch. I do not want to record it. I wonder how I do this?
The partisan Bull Pucky that is the Republican Party”s refusal to govern and to just be all political all the time has to stop. The partisan crappola is supposed to stop the Wednesday after the election.
I wish I could like Nancy Pelosi, for the arm-in-arm walkout yesterday, but her taking the investigation of the Bush Administration per its behavior in Iraq off the table after the election in 2008 makes it impossible for me to trust anything she does.
Finally actually purchased my Amtrak tickets to and from BlogHer ’12. Been wanting to take a mini-sabbatical and write for several days without the concerns of animals, house, and husband. I need to have some uninterrupted time just working from the bloggy lobe and the writer’s neural net in my head. No, I’m not afraid to fly. I just enjoy trains. The trip I took to the first BlogHer BET in March of 2011 was by train from Tucson to San Jose. The leg of the trip from L.A. to San Jose along the coast was amazing! I’d do that trip again in a heartbeat. The Texas Eagle that I will take from Chicago to Tucson is NOT a scenic route, but I still plan to enjoy it to the fullest and take advantage of the time to write.
The corporatization of almost any public institution leads to evil.
I have so freaking much to do in the next couple of weeks….but I will conquer my lists, tasks, and so on and have a great visit with family, a productive BlogHer conference, and an amazing writing journey on the train home.
Don’t steal content!
The featured image is from a professionally purchased graphics pack, that allows commercial use of imagess, that was gifted to me by The Hubby, bless his pointed little head, somewhere in the far past of “like ten years ago.” I enlarged the sign the woman in the image is holding and added the text on the sign using GIMP.
Thanks to The Word Nerd for reminding me that we should talk about this issue on our blogs.
