Wow, NASA says that there was once a salty sea on Mars. Apparently, some rocks were formed by water. Wow. Imagine that. I wonder what happened between then and now. Maybe some simple life forms had idealogical differences, wiped each other out and scarred the planet in the process. Oh wait. I’m thinking about our planet.
The Bush Administration testified before the 911 Commission today sans Pres. Bush and Dr. Rice. I realized something while I was listening to bits and pieces. I realized that it’s going to be a loooooooooooooong election cycle between now and November. Frankly, I’m not looking forward to it. And Israel. Man oh man. It’s going to be bad. Very, very bad.
But nevermind that. Spring is here. The days are getting longer and there are warm days here and there. I’ll be heading out to California at the end of April. Hopefully, I’ll be able to take care of my things in storage. Maybe it’ll all just magically disappear and take care of itself. A la peanut butter sandwiches!
Okay, I’ll admit it. I’m just writing because it’s been a week. I don’t have anything in particular to say, in case you couldn’t tell. Actually, I have both an endorsement AND a warning. And about the same thing. I bought some low carb, low fat vanilla ice cream the other night. With frozen berries or powdered Ghirardelli’s chocolate and a little (soy) milk you can make some bomb ass milkshakes.
Well, on the side of the ice cream carton there’s a warning about some of the ingredients possibly having a laxative effect. I’m here to tell you not to ignore these warnings. What a day. I started it off with a mixed berry shake and turned into roiling and churning. It was a good shake, though. But man. I think I may have spent more time in the facilities than at my desk today. You’ve been warned and I’ve learned my lesson … probably. Exercise moderation or you risk unleashing the dogs of war.
Anyway, I’m going to do some reading or something constructive. Au revoir.
