Hmmm.... lots of comments on the two Cheney-shot-a-man posts today. I'm surprised people have found so much to say about it. It seems to me that this week was set to be the week when everyone talked about Katrina, which is a tremendously important political story. But then a gun went bang, and we had to look.
But today, I've been otherwise occupied. There was the usual law professing, then a trip to the oral surgeon for phase five -- it must be by now -- of getting a tooth implant. After that ordeal, I had to rush home to do the regular Wednesday work of getting a lot of junk out of the house, Thursday being trash day. Once again, I had two teenagers do the heavy lifting, taking things out to the curb, while I organized and sorted things in the house. This week, I did it while biting on gauze.
Amazingly, the basement is nearly done. It was only last Saturday that I was bemoaning the insane pile-up down there. Now, all the junk is removed, and the surfaces are clean. It doesn't even say "We don't need no education" on the wall anymore.
So, it's been a long day. It's time to eat soft foods, drink a glass of wine, and luxuriate in front of the television. It's a peak night for TV you know. It's not just the Olympics, it's "American Idol" and "Project Runway."
"Runway" is an especially big deal tonight, because the last designer is eliminated, before the final three are sent off to make a line of clothes for Fashion Week. I wonder if there will be any big excitement. It would be shocking if Daniel didn't make it, and surprising if Chloe didn't make it. You've got to assume that they want Santino, the most interesting character to make it, so it seems that Kara is the one who will have to go. But Kara has had some impressive staying power. So maybe Chloe will be auf'd!
