- As it's supposed to be in the upper 70's today I dug out my favourite summer shirt from last year. It still fits just fine, but, well, I'm not sure what happened because it's just kinda blah. Last summer I couldn't get enough of it and gladly wore it whenever possible, but now it just seems so average. I ask you then, what happened during those few short months to turn this wonderful piece of haberdashery from a beloved treasure into a blah piece of clothing? Oooorrrr, is it that the shirt is the same but I've changed as a person? Is that what they mean when they talk of personal growth? Am I maturing?
- It's a real bummer that the Kentucky Derby winner broke his leg while running the big race last weekend. First, how do you break a leg while running unless you're on steroids or something??? Right??? So the old adage "cheaters never prosper" really does hold true here. Secondly, and the real tragedy here, is that the horse was only weeks away from being retired to some nice horse farm out in the country where all it would have to do is hang out and fuck. I mean, the poor animal has worked hard all his life for the big payoff, the retired stud life, only to break a leg and screw it all up. I imagine that's why they're spending a metric fuckload of money to try to fix his leg. It's not that they care about the poor little horse, they just don't want to miss out on the pimp money.
- Lunch today will be a chicken sandwich, along with some leftover Italian chicken -n- pasta salad. The chicken-pasta salad is just great, and quite simple to make too. You know, I'm kinda starting to dig on this lowfat high carb diet. Plus, as an added bonus, I'm going to run out to the store for a big box of Runtstm for dessert. Fat free those Runtstm are, yep, nothing but pure flavour.
- I got a DVD from the library last night on the history of the mob. I only watched about 15 minutes of it before I fell asleep, as I wasn't feeling too well, but they're claiming that the mob actually started during the prohibition years. Now, I knew they were big in the bootlegging business back then, but I didn't know that's when they really came into power. Funny how you never know the side effects of things, like prohibition giving power to the mob, or invading sovereign countries in the middle east increasing terrorism. I wonder if our "leaders" ever think about these things before they take action?
