I love books. All books. But sadly I suffer from a terrible attraction to Stephen King, well I used to anyway. I just read his latest. Oh Lord he really has begun to repeat himself . In fact this new book was just a rehash of Rose Madder. The theme was the same but ofcourse the theme is always the same isn't it?
I think back all the way to Carrie in the shower and it's always been the same damn story. At least back then it was fresh.
I literally cannot remember anything about the new book. It was so utterly familiar it could have been any Stephen King book.I actually had to go find the damn book so I could get the title..Lisey's story. Some goofy woman in peril ghost story where there is always a happy ending and the bad guys or things get it in the end.
I am disappointed really or maybe I can take it as a positive? Maybe I am finally too damn adult to hear the same bedtime story over and over.
Or maybe the world is already way to scary to entertain the thought of supernatural savior's waiting patiently to save us all.
King also has a cross fascination with the end of the world except his version always has noble warriors for Good stomping around making the world a better place. I think I am just too cynical to believe the idea that a bunch of red neck Americans would band together in a cheery ethnically diverse groups to reinstate civilization.
It's more likely they would band together with huge weapon caches and blow each other up over who gets the tinned fruit at Walmart.

Congratulations to Bush for managing to stagger through a speech without mangling the language too badly and keeping that ridiculous asshole smirk off his face . What is with this guys inability to wipe that stupid look off his face? Is he really mentally deficient? He actually seems retarded. I heard him trying to explain how a flex fuel works...It was as if he couldn't grasp any of it and was trying mightily to talk himself through it..Out loud..To a room filled with scientists who spend all day working on alternative fuels.

Then I sat through an interview with three seemingly normal Americans who all agreed Bush was just wonderful, smart and funny and an all round brilliant President. All I thought was wow, they aren't kidding when they say the American education system is broken. If these three think Bush is brilliant they must struggle every day with brushing their teeth.

Bush's new plan is to get a few more thousand American teenagers killed and still there are some Americans that say hey, that is a wonderful idea! I mean as long as I don't have to do
anything right?

I think it's too late for Iraq.
I am all for cut and run. Yes, America broke it but so what? Let them do what they do best..Throw money at it for a few years and then forget about it entirely.
Iraqis will either get sick of killing each other or they wont, it's not our problem that these people really enjoy killing. In fact it might be to our advantage to keep them busy whacking each other. Keeps us off the radar.

okay so that's tired

I am tired.Tired.
But not that kind of tired where you fall asleep instantly.The other kind where you stumble around zombie like moaning I am tired.
This is the question in my head.
If you had a need for a big surgery would you really electively schedule it over Christmas? The kind of surgery if all didn't go well you could, well, die....
Why decide that Christmas would be the perfect time?
It's not like the surgery had to be done, you have lots of time.
I answered no .
Dying at Christmas means your family gets to hate Christmas forever. I mean you can't celebrate can you?
So, why?
Take out the "we don't celebrate Christmas anyway" excuse cause these people ? They all celebrated Christmas last year.
Yeah, I don't get it.
How about waiting okay? Give your family a break.

I want to congratulate President Bush for an incredibly insightful response to the mess in Iraq.
This is what rich people do. They just keep throwing money and servants at problems. It's not their money and hell, it's not their children.What do they care?
It's interesting to me that Americans hold their own children in such low esteem. Cannon fodder? Sure, why not..It's patriotic right?
I like my kid, I am not handing mine over to some ignorant, stupid, rich white guy so he can play war. But I guess Americans think it's just fine.
After seeing the teeming masses on American Idol it does make sense. Wow, America's future sure seems really American. I think voting for Bush would come easy to most of them, just as it did for their parents.
I do have to say when Simon called that kid a "bushbaby" I cringed pretty hard. I got what he meant , lemurs have large eyes and the kid? Well he suffered from an absence of lower face so yes, his eyes in contrast did look a bit large but damn..leave the kid alone you know? It's not like he wakes up every morning and doesn't notice okay? I hate the personal shit. Comment on crap singing. Leave the fat , big eyes whatever out. These kids , hell kids..They are over twenty.These adults are already unstable enough I don't want to hear about one of them losing their mind in a post office somewhere, especially if I am in the post office.

I have no excuse or explanation for why I watch American Idol. I just do. I enjoy the recaps much more though. Jacob at TWOP does such a great job. No, I don't watch with irony.

Okay , maybe I am tired enough to pass out.
