notmypresident: (1984 Is Now)
The oppressive heat can be good for something:  I was up bright and early to mow the lawn before it gets too fucking hot here to move.  I'm not sure I'll do a treadmill session today, as that might be overdoing it...

I wasn't up early enough to beat the bugs.  If only I could attract bears the way I seem to attract bugs.  Yuck...

I've noticed a lot more men in commercials sporting facial hair.  Even -- gasp! -- men with full beards, which is really, really rare in TV advertising.  From the barbarians in the Capital One commercials to car commercials (ex-football player Steve Young is still paired with that hunky goateed guy), facial hair appears to be making inroads.  My current favorite is the bearded daddy who ice fishes and then needs a new "press and seal" saran wrap to keep his catch fresh (and he's been fishing a lot).  I notice there's no wifey around to do the sealing for him...

I've also noticed the insidious trend of including religion in more and more news programs and commentaries.  It's greed-induced pandering, of course, but it's still troubling.  NBC appears to be the most adept at working religion into such a simple thing as hurricane coverage.  They even stooped to the point of devoting an entire hour to a modern exorcism in one of their "news" programs...

Though I hope I'm wrong, I believe Karl Rove will get away with everything.  I'm just waiting for him to turn that smug smile into a halo -- oh, wait.  Too late...

I'm overdosing on Jeff Wayne's Musical Version of The War of the Worlds. I fully expect the neighbors to come over any minute and ask me to please play something else...

But hey, at least I was singing tunes from "Wicked" while mowing the lawn...

Still no depos this week...

But, thankfully, there will always be the Favorite Bear of the Moment (okay, not always -- but pretty damned near to it).
