AMUSING: somebody at church suggested that perhaps the occasional flareups of the wifing unit's chronic illness are due to a witch casting a spell on her. His mother had apparently suggested it when she was visiting from the Old Country and he agreed it could possibly be an issue. GREAT. So now I have to go on a witch hunt. She wasn't there this week, which was good, since it's definitely a thing she would and did enjoy more being told about than being afflicted with. She was, at least until today, more willing to start coming back and just ignore, eg, the God-talking guy, but some nonsense has been floating around the news and it's like, are you going to spend half of your energy thinking about this stuff (she doesn't have much energy)? Because starting to think about it becomes quite consuming, apparently.
The Cubs run was fun while it lasted. I'm disappointed that Murphy didn't keep his streak going after this. I don't really care about these teams except for my distaste for the idea of the American League - it's not actually baseball. That said, I did listen to last night's game because, once it got started, I heard that it was turning epic. It was pretty fun. I'm listening to tonight's and not really caring. ADDENDUM A LITTLE LATER: okay, it sounds like there were some amusing plays, I'll have to see clips later.
My project isn't working well.
The Republicans are so depressing. I mean, I didn't like Romney, I didn't like McCain, I didn't like Bush, but if any of them won, I could see them as president. The Bush years were an unmitigated disaster - everything the conservatives complain about in schools is a result of NCLB - but they weren't so bad. I mean, we got into a terrible quagmire in the Middle East, but, honestly, it took like 12 years for that to really bite us in the ass, not like whatever war we get into next. That one is going to be horrible. And but like so that's what the problem is with the next GOP presidential candidate: this field is horrible and they're going to pull the trigger. None of these jokers can govern.
