How about that? Think I can do it? Did I fail just by mentioning that I wouldn’t mention it? Damn.
Here’s a revelation: I think much of my interest in politics was driven by my vehement hatred of this administration and desperately wanting to see them get what I believe they deserve. Because I couldn’t give one rat’s ass about the brouhaha between Hillary and Obama. And it irks me that all the other things going on (oh, let’s see: Iraq, 4000+ dead, price of oil, housing, food rising, economy going to hell) gets tossed aside to discuss who wears fucking flag lapel pins. Always with the distractions. I hate that. The real issues get no coverage and it’s all just crap. So, yeah. All of it is a waste of time (for me). I may change my opinion again but probably not.
I believe I have seen more of Duty’s family in the past three weeks than in the past three years combined! :) His dad had some health challenges and we’ve been visiting more. One good thing about the DutyFamily visits is they are QUICK! A hour, tops. My family would consider your ass ruder than hell if you came and stayed an hour. (We’re Italian, dontchaknow?) This works out okay for me because even though they live an hour away, it’s more like an afternoon excursion than a whole day of visiting. And today we stopped by to see Aunt Nellie, Duty’s great-aunt (she’s 91) who is the sweetest thing that ever walked this earth. I love her to pieces. She told Duty she loved me more than him! heheh (okay, she said “as much as” but I heard “more than” so I’m sticking with that.)
And last but not least, GO CAPS! And Lauren was working the magic from heaven, too! I told her that if she wanted to show me her new magical powers, she’d have Semin score a goal in that game. And damn if he didn’t!! (The winning one, too, thankyouverymuch!) (Background: Semin was her most favorite player although I never knew why because we’d always make fun of him falling on his own with no one around to shove him or anything. That’s why I asked her to assist Mr. Semin with the goal (and standing upright!)) I’d like nothing more than to see them beat the Flyers ass in the upcoming game. GO GO GO C-A-P-S!
