Well, I must admit that I am enjoying this here being on vacation thing. In fact, I could get used to this leisurely lifestyle quite easily (but alas, not the attendant poorness sure to follow).
Since I seem to thrive on routine, I’ve made a little one for myself to be followed on all days except this one (because a dental appointment at 8:30 blew that away). Otherwise, I plan on going to the gym every morning, spending 1/2 an hour on the basement organizing my mess, doing a short meditation and straightening up. Oh yeah, and maybe once or twice fixing my husband an actual dinner meal. As I told Snapper, I can be domestic for short spurts; otherwise, my head explodes and I have to run to the nearest bookstore or Starbucks. Thus, the house will be tidied up in spurts to as to avoid messy explosions (and create more stuff to clean. It’s a vicious cycle, you see).

Commentary on recent events:
Pete Rose: This column in the Washington Post says it all.
“Rose says he’s “not built” to “act all sorry or sad or guilty.” Well, if he can’t even act that way, with his whole future hanging in the balance, we can be sure he’s incapable of actually feeling that way. Our prisons are full of people who aren’t “built” to feel remorse or guilt or sorrow at the damage they have done. This attitude is a pathology, Pete, not a bragging point.
Even more chilling is Rose’s using the word “it” twice, instead of “I.” The truly contrite person would instinctively say, “I’m sorry I did it and that I hurt people.” Instead, Rose says that “it” did the damage. And what is “it”? Well, “it” is the investigation, the exposure of his gambling, the scandal. In other words, like any unrepentant scoundrel, he’s mostly sorry that he got caught. He still hasn’t come to terms with the deed itself. “
I truly hope that they don’t allow PR into the Baseball Hall of Fame, no matter what his achievements. To do so would only cement the fact that there are NO consequences to his actions. The article above goes on to mention that Rose’s admissions now are only motivated by money. He has a book coming out and wants to stir up sales. Stuff like that I cannot abide. I despise phony asses with the heat of a thousand suns.
Britney Spears: Child, what the hell are you doing??? How stupid is this girl and who are those who are supposed to be managing her? They ought to be fired, pronto. Like she isn’t really at the top of (her) world now – looks, (some) talent, etc … and she goes and does this dumbass stunt? Geez. Swear to God, those celebs live in an alternate universe.
Michael Jackson: Please. Just admit you are beyond any help and go hide away in Neverland (minus the young boys) and leave us be.
Anyway, I’m loving vacation. And I get my hair cut today too! Thank heavens. I was looking wicked shaggy (Imagine that!)
Peace out, yo.
