Watermelon. Laziness. Racist.

G’morning, GN!

Hai, Sven…and heh.

I’m getting the impression there was some big televised political hoohah last night. Did I miss anything important? 😉

Shoot…that dusty old document’s gotta be more than a hundred years old; why is it still relevant?

And written by rich, privileged, racist, slave-owning white men.

Speaking of racism, I’m wading through an audio version of Harper Lee’s Go Set a Watchman. It’s awful.

OK, off to the pits.

Not surprised by that; if it were any good, I think it would have been published decades ago.

Finished off Harper Lee’s book on the way home tonight. The last few chapters weren’t too bad especially after Scout’s Uncle Jack smacks her twice across the face and knocks some sense into her.

But nowhere near To Kill a Mockingbird. Don’t hold your breath for the movie version of this one.

Sure Happy It’s Thursday, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Sven and Fatwa!

Fatwa -- I didn’t watch the political theater last night, either. I figured I’d wait to read about it this morning, when my political betters can tell me what to think.

Good morning! (in singsong voice) The best thing about the debate last night?
“The Martian” trailer!

I read the book this year and it was fabulous!

I. Cant. Wait!

Margaret Thatcher on OUR $10dolla bill? WTFuckebythenavele! I really picked the wrong week to stop drinking.

Drive-by:

Hai, Paddy and Cali!

Paddy --

I was hoping that all 11 debaters last night would take the stage by emerging from a tiny car; my understanding was that didn’t happen. 🙁

Cali --

As much SF as I read, I haven’t gotten to “The Martian” yet but it’s on my list.

Re the $10 bill, I like Harriet Tubman, a gun-owning Republican.

They had to scrap the car plan at the last minute because despite their best efforts, Trump’s ego just wouldn’t fit in.

My dad has heart surgery (again) tomorrow morning. Please take a moment and send a good thought — and a prayer, if you would.

Prayers for PapaK for a successful surgery. Prayers for the surgeons and nurses, and prayers for Brenda and her family for peace and comfort during this stressful time.
