Jasper Madness


Jasper watches my NCAA tournament picks go down. Way down. Next time I think I'll let him make my picks.

I Can Name That Tune

Unfortunately the Nevada System of Higher Ed expects me to work today and so I haven't been able to spend much time on this. It's harder than I thought it would be. Looks like I have my evening cut out for me. via freakgirl

Too Bad

"Americans aren't disenfranchised because our leaders won't count votes in a couple of states. They're disenfranchised because our leaders aren't doing their jobs. They're disenfranchised because after working hard to support their families and to raise kids who understand the difference between right and wrong, their leaders do exactly the opposite.

In the cases of Florida and Michigan, I've patiently listened to all the moving arguments about why there should be a "do-over," but quite honestly, they're not arguments at all. They're excuses. If this race wasn't so close, or if these states offered a combined 36 delegates instead of 366, do you really think anyone would care? Of course not."

Well said!

I've become either lazy or boring since I got back from Mexico. Nothing exciting going on here. Wake up, go to work, go home, laze around, go to bed, wake up, go to work....

I did go over to the new mall at the Palazzo because I was looking for some Sugar. My friend Laurie had it in Mexico and I decided I must have some. I found I could buy it at the Forum Shops or at the Palazzo and decided to go to the new place. The mall was very elaborate and obviously high end, but kind of dark and there weren't many people there. Partly because I can't afford to shop at most of the stores and partly because it was pretty boring, I don't think I'll go back soon. There were signs for the openings of a few nice restaurants though so that might entice me back. In fact the dining page reads like an advertisement for FoodNetwork Chefs.
