Circling the Drain
I don't know why i even came up with that subject line. Except that when i watch the media pundits i worry about the Democrats. And when i read everything that surrounds the new Waiting for Superman documentary by Guggenheim (who did Inconvenient Truth) i worry about the future of unions. And i worry about Obama and i still support him.
You know who should be circling the drain? Sarah Palin, the Tea Party, Dick Cheney, Newt Gingrich. Christine O'Donnell. the list goes one and on.
I don't really have much on my mind, so i'll just do a menu and appease louielouie with getting the scary angel photo off.
MENU OF THE DAY:
iPodding to: "Red Umbrella" by Forest Sun
The Best thing that Happened this week: hmmm. i have been sitting here trying to think of something. It's been a crazy week. I'll come back to this.
What i keep procrastinating about: I need to send a sympathy card to the wife of our former condo president. The one president i actually really liked alot.
My favorite commercial this week:It's the Subura commercial with the married couple who go camping on their honeymoon. and a storm comes in and pulls down their white tent. I think the couple is adorable. (And i just now went and found it on YouTube and put it up here since i still don't have a photo. )
Stupid commercial i hate right now: Those bear commercials with the Charmin toilet paper. I guess you remember it's Charmin because of the whole 'bear shit in the woods' saying, but those ads drive me crazy.
In my glass: i know summer is over but i am drinking a glass of South Austrailian viognier. It's very nice because it's not too sweet. It's a 2009 Yalumba.
About that wine: i was at Tacoma Boys and they had two different Yalumba viogniers. One had a price on it of $18 and the other was advertised at $10. But then i noticed that the $10 one was a 2009. the $18 was a 2008. However, this is a pet peeve of mine: the 2009 $10 bottle had a card on it that boasted 92 points on Wine Spectator. Only the vintage was the 2008 (which is the $18 bottle). So i told the girl they needed to put the card on the other vintage instead. And she did.
But secretly i was hoping she would sell me the 92 point $18 viognier for $10 but she didn't offer that. LOL.
so i bought the $10 one instead. And it's actually so good that i'm not sure i would have noticed the difference. I am a sucker for those little cards that talk about the wine. And i wish i had that job.
Book: it's still Pillars of the Earth. Did i mention this book was nearly 1000 pages long? So i've been reading it in between finishing Grey's Anatomy's last season on netflix. Today was my last DVD. That show is still really good. I think i have mentioned before that Christine, Sandra Oh's character is one of my favorites. I also love Alex Kurev, and Torres. But if i had to pick a #1 favorite, i might choose Bailey. I liked this season more because Katherine Heigel/Izzy is barely in it. Anyway, within 3 weeks i finished all of the season on DVD and will tear through Pillars in between working on Lost.
Where is everyone? I am not naming names because i always leave some off. But where are y'all? I wish i could check and see how many people look and don't post. It's that damn Facebook, isn't it?
OK, that's all i got. I'm outta here.
