Beef Bourguinon Day 2

STILL fucking tasty.
Hmm. Do I stay and watch the Sux game? Or do I go engage in some retail therapy to calm my playoff-expectin nerves?


I am so desperate for freaking baseball that I may voluntarily watch the Sux-Twinkies tonight.
Jesus. Wednesday can't get here fast enough.


Saturday's game is at fucking NINE PM.

Big Fucking Surprise

The Ruthugs just derailed their own "sent-from-heaven" bailout plan. *rolls eyes*
And this *was* surprising: Washington Mutual Inc has been seized by the Feds and sold off to JP Morgan. W.T.FFFFFFF? And their investors are SOL. I used to work for WaMu. Hated it, but I worked in one of the corporate offices for the DVP of HR.
Dear People Who Think Republicans are Great, Moral and Fiscally Responsible:
Please go shoot yourself. We are in the worst recession I have ever been alive for. And whose fault is that? YOURS. ALL YOURS. Because last time I fucking checked, Clinton left office with us all in the black. You fuckers SPENT AND/OR STOLE EVERYTHING YOU COULD AND PRAISED JEEBUS WHILE DOING IT.


Welp, the Cubs won - with Bobby HOWRY no less - last night in 10. Glad SOMEBODY stepped up.
This means: the Phillies stay 1.5 games up on the Mets in the NL East, with a magic number of 3 (?). Mets have fallen into a TIE in the Wild Card with...the Brew Crew, who pitched CC Safathia on three days' rest (for the second time, and they'll probably do so AGAIN against us later this weekend).
The Dodgers have a magic number of 1 (ONE) against the Diamondbacks. Yee haw. I want those snakes ELIMINATED, bitches. This is not because I think the Dodgers would be an easier opponent - not at ALL, hello Manny! - but the thought of there being any possibility of us having to go to Chase Field sort of makes me want to HURL.
Playoff picture is still very cloudy with less than a week to go.
We get to play the team with the worst record. I'd like that to be the Mets, but meh. Right now the Mets are in a dogfight with the Brewers for the Wild Card. Fairly certain the other matchup will be Dodgers-Phillies though. That's fine with me. They can go beat up on each other.
Oh, and Minnesota pwned the Sux last night AGAIN. HA HA HA HA. God, I really hope we can get rid of all this ridiculous speculation about a "Red Line Series" (the Red Line, for you non-Chicago folks, is the eLevated train line that runs from Howard on the North side, hits Addison (i.e., across from Wrigley) and eventually goes to the 35th/Sox stop way down on the South Side before ending at the Dan Ryan). So I think the Twins are within a half game? Maybe? If they win tonight I do think they go up on the Sux. Red Line Series? Bad, Bad, BAAAAD idea. Chicago would be a war zone. Fucking Daley wants the bars in Wrigleyville to stop selling alcohol after the 7th inning stretch. What's he gonna do if the Sux make it? Have everyone check in their guns at the bar entrance? Eh?

This is hopeless. I did not get selected to get tickets.
I checked stubhub to be outraged about prices - and was. Near THREE HUNDRED just for fucking STANDING ROOM.
Fuck everyone

If you want to reach something in life
You ain't gonna get it unless
You give a little bit of sacrifice

Dear GAWD I am fucking AGGRAVATED. I am *NEVER* *EVER* going to the Walgreens at the corner of 176 and 43 for photo developing/ordering photo CDs.
First time they gave me the WRONG order. Today? The machine busts down and the moron doesn't tell me that my order won't be ready until I fucking pester him.
I call back to check on the status, because it "won't be long" - machine STILL down.
You fuckers, I have pictures of Zambrano's no-hitter AND I WANT THEM. NOW.
I told the guy if he doesn't have them done in half an hour, he can ditch the order because I am going ELSEWHERE.

And now Palin is threatening RUSSIA with WAR?!
Someone, PLEASE toss this dozy bitch into the fucking Bearing Straight, PLEASE.

What day is it?

Well, unless you're a complete moron, you know what today is.
I'm not sad, I'm angry if anything.
Angry because seven years later ...
-- fear is still being used as a tactic to keep the Republicans in power. Lest anyone forget - it's while on THEIR watch this attack happened. They were warned about Al Q and Bin Laden well in advance of the attack. They chose to do nothing.
-- For all his bullshit posturing about "dead or alive" and "mission accomplished", Bush STILL HAS NOT caught Bin Laden or accomplished anything! Why? Because if you catch Bin Laden, you can't use the Boogeyman to scare sheep into submission. They might try to catch BL now to say "yay, we did it, now vote for us again"
-- How many thousands of US soldiers dead in an UNJUST war in Iraq. Hussein would never have had Al Q. Why? Because he was a totalitarian dictator! They would challenge his authority, and there's only room for one. Afghanistan was legitimate - that's where Bin Laden was. Iraq was a complete lie.
-- How many MILLIONS of Iraqi dead?
-- How much national wealth poured into Iraq while people here suffer, lose jobs, no health insurance, lose loved ones, national disasters (like Katrina) here...?
-- McCain uses a backdrop showing the attacks during his speeches. Yes. He actually did. USING THE ATTACKS FOR HIS OWN PERSONAL GAIN.
-- Blackwater and other contractors making large financial gains on the blood, sweat and tears of others
-- "Weapons of Mass Destruction" my ass.
-- Valerie Plame
-- LIES LIES LIES and MORE LIES and on and on and on
Fuck Bush. Fuck McCain.

I could really kill for some serrano jam right about now.
Mmm. Salty goodness.
Must have been that damn Andrew Zimmerman show in Spain yesterday. Yes, I know he's a doof, BUT the Spanish food!!

Holy shit, did he really say that?

I saw this over on LOHO [ http://inaleagueofherown.com ]  I mean, yeah, we say it all the time (and oh was it fucked up on Saturday to see him hit a HOMERUN and CHEER FOR HIM), but BOB?!

I found the "missing" money I had lost a couple weeks ago in my trouser pockets this morning. Around $24 dollars.
I am so looking forward to yoga tonight. I need something to put me in a better frame of mind after all this sports and politics related asshattery. I'm bringing my yoga teacher an "I <3 The Riot" t-shirt. Too bad the Cubs aren't freaking winning. Poor Wendy. She's been on the cover of the Trib and/or the Sun-Times with her husband at Cubs games. (They've got season tickets.) I saw the one from the 2003 NLCS debacle and her face was buried in her husband's shoulder.
That's about how I feel.
