Someone asked me about Uncle Horn Head and where that comes from... Pretty simple, really. Before I was married I would travel to NJ to visit friends for a night or two and sleep on the sofa. When their kids got up at dawn, or so it seemed, they would flick my ear and generally make themselves disagreeable until I stirred. When I got up to "impart some wisdom" my hair was matted on either side of my head and sticking straight up on top so the kids got to calling me, "Uncle Horn Head." They also called me, "Surfer Dude." But that's another story for another time.
Other things I'm thinking about as the weekend is set to begin...
-When is the Bush administration going to implode? There are several things I can think of now that could pave the way for a Democrat to return to the White House. To name a few:
The Plame Investigation. They are focusing on Cheney's staff here. One of his staffers will probably take the fall and be bathed in Halliburton stock.
The lack of WMDs. The recently discovered spying on Kofi Annan is intricately linked with this issue. I don't understand how people on the right can still support the Iraq War based on this deficient reasoning. Aggravating. Bush lied and our soldiers died.
The President's military service. Or lack of it. Bush's campaign chair, Racicot, said on NPR this week that Bush tried to volunteer for Vietnam. I'm thankful that NPR ran a correction/retraction this morning. What a joke. In the past month, the NPR reporter, Juan Williams, has been lied to by: Karl Rove, Dick Cheney, Racicot and Condi. If you only catch 25% of the liars, people will start questioning YOUR integrity.
9/11 Commission, Stolen Dem Computer Records and the list goes on...
-Will St. Joes go to 26-0? Phil Martelli is an unbelievably classy guy and his team plays in the same vain.
-Will Bill Murray win an Academy Award?
-Will they give Joan Rivers' plastic surgeon a lifetime achievement award?
-Can Arsenal continue their unbeaten streak to start the season?
-Will there be enough washers and dryers at the Laundromat tomorrow morning for me to do the ton of laundry I need to?
-Will I feel as good as I do now, tomorrow?
