    My ED is losing it. Seriously. He really needs to retire.

    Losing it like the ED's a pain, or losing it "sad" like just getting to old to do it anymore?

    There is so much that I don't know that I wish I knew. Mostly history stuff, but other cool things like how to cook healthy food that still tasted like B-dubs, or what exercises to do for maximum results with minimum effort.

    I was going to post that lyric.

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
    From Kelly's Heroes (1970)


    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.
    From Electric Horseman (1979)

    looking at my schedule... oh look. Nothing going on tonight. Perhaps I will read a book, drink a cold beer, and relax.

    Third straight night meeting this week. Council committee meeting and I'm hoping one certain Councilman can't make it. Fingers crossed...

    You know that song "R E S P E C T... " blah blah blah?

    Sometimes when I am about to open Random Thoughts, I start to sing "R T D N TO TO" to that beat.

    I was very productive today. It might have had something to do with our email being down.

    Sad...getting old and losing his edge. I actually asked my boss if he was OK. She was hiding it, but I think she's worried too. She used to work very closely with him in her previous position, now she's running a division and in another building.

    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor
