I call bullshit

"President Bush again defended his program of warrantless surveillance Thursday, saying "there's no doubt in my mind it is legal." He suggested that he might resist congressional efforts to change or expressly endorse it.

"The program's legal, it's designed to protect civil liberties, and it's necessary," Bush told a White House news conference."

Who am I kidding?

I'm not going anywhere tonight. In acknowledgment of that fact, I gave shadowdaddy the car, in the hopes that maybe he'll get home earlier. Really, I just don't go see bands at nine on school nights, and while I can say, "Ooh, I'd love to go to karaoke," fact of the matter is that it's not going to happen, as I'd only go if someone invited me (and drove). I can't even get excited about the idea of having someone come over and play games. It seems like going nowhere is really the right thing for tonight.

In other news, I have proven I still have the knack to cook rice, though judging from the condition of my rice and pasta bins, I've been letting things sit for a long, long time. Good thing I'd bought a new bag of basmati rice recently. And thank you, madame_heather, for providing me with tonight's dinner, albeit inadvertently.

In other other news, my second Richard Morgan book picked up right as I was getting off the bus to go to the Y, and I'm pretty excited about it.

A perfect world

In a perfect world I'd still have the copy of the Eurythmics' Love is a Stranger album I bought back in 1983. And it woudn't be scratched. And I'd still have the thumpy speakers the size of small bookshelves I bought back in 1986 with my Pell Grant. And I could be singing along with it in my living room right now.

Hmm. That's pretty good. Maybe I'll try for something harder now.
