The Wednesday Hump Day oasis is not a mirage, but a welcomed reality. After Super Tuesday, a mellow Wednesday seems entirely in order. A short trek over to AREA 51 at Lakes Cafe is the prescription for a relaxing evening and should prove to be the catalyst for some fun.
Obviously, the first cocktails of the evening are used to induce the answers for the ever growing world and social problems and they are usually resolved in short order. Most of the unresolved problems are usually shifted to the back burner as the cocktails usually begin to dominate the conversations.
Congratulations to the women of the United States of America. If there was anything that had a major effect on yesterday's primaries, it was the women's vote. My thinking is that women have always made it a point to express their opinions and now that there is a woman leading the Democratic national race for president, even more so.
As for Republican (loser) Mitt Romney, his statement yesterday that Mike Huckabee was a spoiler in the Republican race, was just another indication of how inadequate he is as a human being, let alone a presidential candidate. Perhaps the spoiler in the race is Mitt Romney, who has outspent Huckabee 10 to 1. Romney has used 35 million dollars of his own money and is barely ahead of Huckabee.
An interesting subject that arose last evening was the subject of proposed vice presidential running mates. There have been suggestions in the Democratic race, being as tight as it is, of a possible Clinton-Obama "dream" ticket. My personal thoughts is that this will not happen and I'm still looking at a Clinton-John Edwards possibility. The odds of this happening will lessen however as we get closer and closer to the Democratic National Convention.
On the Republican front, it is becoming more and more likely of a McCain-Mike Huckabee ticket. It was suggested however, although remotely, of a McCain-Colin Powell ticket. That would be a "dream" ticket if there ever was one.
It's Hump Day and, quite frankly, I've had enough of politics this week, and especially the political pundits. About half of these idiots can barely master the English language and I find most of them annoying and irritating.
The most recent outburst I heard was from (asshole) Rush Limbaugh, who said that John McCain was no friend to the Republican party and a traitor to the GOP. This annoys me no end and it obviously pissed of my pal, Beth, who lit into him in her journal, Nutwood Junction.
This reminds me of the fact that we have not awarded the Cats Ass Trophy (CAT) award to any of the deserving assholes who have earned it lately. For those of you who are not familiar with the highly esteemed and much sought after award, it is given to deserving people or entities who completely aggravate, defile, injure or generally piss everyone off.
Past winners include (but not limited to) O. J. Simpson, The Mattel Corporation, "Podium Al" Sharpton, Michael Vick, Rosie "O'Fat Ass" O'Donnell, and many other deserving people. The judges are myself and my trusty attack cat, Shithead, together with input from my readers. You may nominate anyone, any time. The winner(s) are announced on Friday. Here is a picture of the highly coveted award.
The Pictures: Driftwood horses, id est, horses made from driftwood for the hard of understanding, are among the pictures selected today. I've obtained some new monkey pictures, but no new ones of "Podium Al" Sharpton. Maybe I'll axe him to send me some new ones. As per my wont, there's always the "usual suspects" along some cryptic and blatant salutations.

The Hits Just Keep On Coming: Reflections On Life
1) Never raise your hand to your kids. It leaves your groin unprotected. 2). I'm in shape. Round is a shape. 3) I'm not into working out. My philosophy is no pain, no pain. 4) I'm still trying to figure out why kamikaze pilots wore helmets. 5) Do illiterate people get the full effect of alphabet soup ? 6) I've always wanted to be somebody, but I should have been more specific. 7) You have to stay in shape. My mother started walking 5 miles a day when she was 60. She's 82 now, and I have no idea where she is ! 8) One out of every three Americans is suffering from some form of mental illness. Think of your two best friend. If they're ok, it must be you ! 9) They show you how detergents take out bloodstains. If your t-shirt has bloodstains on it, maybe laundry isn't your biggest problem. 10) Ask people why they have deer heads on their wall and they say it's because they are beautiful. I think my lady friends are beautiful but I only have photographs of them on my wall.
That's it for today my little orange blossoms. More tomorrow.
