Why I love Democrats

Ok, that was supposed to make you smile. If it didn't then you don't me very well. The Birdman knows - so I know he got it. Anyways, to give you an update on my sit-eee-a-tion I am on haitus. I am not working. The company terminated my contract early and although it did piss me off the way they did it (I learned how horrible my manager really was) I have since thought it through and am now HAPPY it all happened. You see, even though I collect a military pension every month I found out yesterday I am still entitled to unemployment benefits. Is this a great country or what? No wonder those immigrants want to invade. So, unless something happens and my application gets denied I am going to take some time off and still have money coming in. Enough to support our household and we'll be fine. What a great concept! I stay home, eating bon-bons and watching worthless daytime TV all the while I am perfectly capable of going out and finding a job, but I am going to collect instead. Now, seriously - I am going to look for a job. It's not like I'm not going to do what I have to do. I will diligently search. I would cheer "Go Hillary" really loudly, but I'm afraid someone might think I'm dead serious.

So, what to do with all this extra time - THAT IS THE QUESTION. Well, do not fear Campers. I have some ideas! For starters, read. I haven't read a book in I don't know how long. I had a list of books I wanted to read and I'll be damned if I can find it. I think I left it in the desk at that place I used to work. Damn. Oh well, I'll start a new one. I'm thinking of starting with something serious and important. No other book is going to mold my mind for the upcoming months like one of National importance. So with that in mind, I am going today to buy...

Love me some Stephen Colbert. =)

Ok, I'm totally digging AvMan's new site. I'm jealous I didn't think of it first. But he has more interesting things to post and share than I do. Mine would be filled with kittens and puppies, horses and romance. And seriously, how much of that can we really tolerate?

SONG OF THE BLOG: "40" by U2. This song needs no explanation. It just is.

Photo of the Blog: This isn't my stash. This doesn't come close to my stash. See how sick I really am?
