So apparently the Bush administration was so p/o'ed about the Democrat Party (sic) winning the Presidential election in November that they couldn't even stand them staying in the hotel next door. Now, I'm not 100% certain that this is true, but sadly I am 99% certain this is true. Are you kidding me?
So my wife had mentioned that she wanted black-eyed peas for New Year's Day. OK, I go to the grocery store to buy some groceries and remember that and think, "Hey, I'll get some canned black-eyed peas, add a little ham or something, and we can have it as a side dish" (I was making a chicken dish in the slow cooker).
Here are just some random notes about the Rick Warren hullaballoo currently underway.
There's been bitching from the left because of the text on the Saddleback Web site (since removed) stating that "someone unwilling to repent of their homosexual lifestyle would not be accepted at a member at Saddleback Church." It goes on to say that they're welcome to attend services, basically in hope that "God's Word" would "change [their] lives."
I have a rotten cold. It's mainly just a chest cold, lots of hacking and wheezing. It's gotten so that I've slept on the couch two out of the last three nights to keep from waking my wife up.
So I haven't gotten squat done the last couple of days. I started cleaning up the house a little bit today and wrapped some Christmas presents, which at least made me feel like the day wasn't a total waste.
Not that it's any of my business, not being a New Yorker or anything. But I've been thinking about this whole business with Caroline Kennedy's desire to take over Hillary Clinton's Senate seat. And after considering it for a while, I've decided that I think it would be a bad idea overall.
So here's this article. Short story: a public school teacher in Austin sees one of her students showing off his laptop with some operating system. The operating system, as it turns out, is Linux and the boy is handing out CDs or DVDs with a copy of the OS installation on it. The teacher freaks, thinking the boy's pirating software, and sends a rather scolding email to the person who gave the boy the disc, saying that there is no free software and encouraging piracy amongst children is a bad thing.
