June 4: Shopping

I'm 1.3 pounds up. ARGH. At least my blood pressure is good.
So I was just sitting with Spooky in my lap, when Rich tapped at the window. This scared my aptly-named cat and he vanished, but not before tearing me up. Massive scratches on both legs, blood, (which I had to wash out of my nightshirt) and pain.
Later in the day we went shopping, by which I mean we went to IKEA. They have lots of lovely stuff but the only thing that would do for part of a wedding present was some heart-shaped ice cube trays. (I suppose if it's heart-shaped, it isn't a cube.) I saw lots of things we might use (if only we had a mansion.) It was interesting, though. Then we went next door to WalMart. I didn't think I'd find Gabe's present there, since our local one didn't have anything wonderful... but there was a Mater ramp that looked like fun. Only then we found the Lightning McQueen sleeping bag. I called Vince. "I'm standing in the store with a Mater ramp in my hands, standing in front of a Lightning McQueen sleeping bag, what do I want?" and he told me I want the sleeping bag!
Later I went out to get a box to mail photos in, and I went to Bed Bath and Beyond. I couldn't find ice-cream sundae fixings, but I did get an idea: I'll put together a "root beer float" basket.
This evening Juan, from Fairfield, came to check out the carpet pad job. He brought his kids, who are just the wrong ages for this house (what, 5 and 11 year old boys, 7 year old girl?) They played the piano and then I got out Nana's treasure chest which enthralled them. They took 4 necklaces (one for Mom). That was nice! And Juan will come to do the job on Sunday.
Paul McCartney took a gratuitous dig at President Bush, no doubt because he figured it would please 0bama. I bet Bush has read more books than Paul McCartney during those 8 years. (And what was 0bama doing with him anyway?)
Michael Silence: "I'm not surprised that mantra is still hanging around. I mean, do you think they want to talk about the last 18 months?"
America, electing Obama because you didn't like Bush was like shooting yourself because you had a head cold. People who continue to diss Bush now are standing over the corpse and arguing that the cold was really bad.

Well, it's not like Bush went over to England and gave the Prime Minister a DVD collection. That would have been really stupid.

Could have been worse, Dean. He might have given the Queen an iPod loaded with his own speeches and pictures from the inauguration. Can you imagine?

I've never picked up any of the telltale clues which would make me think that Obama is a well-read man.
For that matter, I've never picked up any indicating that Sir Paul is, either.

Bush has an MBA from Harvard. McCartney did not graduate from high school. Nuff said.

No, you're stupid...
