The behind the scenes look…..

You’ve seen the pictures, you’ ve read the posts, and now you will get the behind the scenes look at the going ons of when the WGKOOT got together.  It started when I nearly died going to the airport to pick up Ohyo.  There’s a reason they say that highway 95 is one of the deadliest.  Then Tom and Ohyo went to pick up Dan and hilarity ensued.  I unfortunately had to work while our little buddies were here.  I would wake up and (very quietly as Dan was sleeping on the sofa) eat breakfast and dash off to work.  I would come home afterwards to make supper for the three who had been playing video games all day.  (In all seriousness I love to cook and entertain, so this was not a problem)  Cords were strewn all over my house.  They appeared from all over snaking their way over and under furniture to connect into little laptops producing heat into an already warm house (we are in South Florida here).  There were many inside joke to be had all around.  I truly believe that week that I heard every “That’s what she said” jokes there is.

We went on this nice little car ride to a beach a little while north.  The boys played in the water and left me to be EATEN BY KILLER SEAGULLS!!!!!  Thankfully Tom came to rescue me.  After that little fiasco we went to Disney World.  There were many cool and exciting things to be seen.  The most disappointing thing of the day was that there weren’t any corn dogs , but the sight of the spectacular Prince Caspian movie trailer made up for it.  Disney was very exciting with all the adventurous shows and the drive home was quiet and peaceful since half of us were asleep (which was quite dangerous considering Tom was driving while half of his body was asleep).  The rest of the week ended out as anyone would expect with much video gaming playing and some video game playing, oh and did I mention video game playing?  Come Friday it was time for our grande company to go home.  After they left, the dishes were done, the furniture re-arranged, cords were put away, and my refrigerator re-stocked, I sat down on my sofa and thought about how sad it was that once again silence reigned supreme.


The Park Formally Known as MGM

It’s time for a mega Disney update! Wooo! Ok I know that the trip that Ohyo, Dan, myself, and Sugar took last Tuesday is somewhat old news but I can’t help commenting on it anyway. If you’ve already heard the story you don’t have to read about it again that is your prerogative but be warned I withhold my right to call you a snob.

How much can we trust him?

For those of you not paying attention to current events, last night President Obama gave his first address to a joint session of Congress which once a President has been in office a year or more is known as the State of the Union Address. If you got a chance to listen to it, you may have heard a lot of things you agree with no matter which side of the isle you sit. This is because, as is usual, the State of the Union address is generally crafted to appeal to a wide audience. In this case it was well known beforehand that Obama’s speech would be modeled after those of Ronald Reagan. This should seem odd to you since the ideology of President Obama and President Reagan are about as polar opposite as is physically possible and does seem unlikely that the ideas of socialism could be presented under the shroud of conservatism but if you heard the president’s speech last night that’s exactly what you witnessed.

Bold Faced Lies

I just finished watching an episode of the fairly new Fox show “Lie to Me” where there are several experts who can tell by so-called micro-expressions whether or not a person is lying and while I’m not here to recommend the show it has got me thinking a bit more about lying. Lately lying has been a theme that just seems to crop up more and more. There’s lots of talk about A-Rod and if he’s telling the whole truth about steroids and there’s been tons of talk about Illinois governor Rod Blagojevich and his bold faced lies about selling a senate seat. Normally I’d talk about how President Obama went on national TV and lied straight to the American people about the stimulus bill, claiming that it absolutely had no pork and that it was a targeted bill at timely solutions. Today, however, I think I’d like to mention the sneaky lie…by McDonald’s.

I didn’t feel like it

Many of you remember a year or two ago when I had up and running and I was posting once a month if you were lucky and then this whole past year where I posted very infrequently on Why do you suppose that was? It certainly wasn’t out of a lack of things to write about. We’ve had more blog ranting fodder in the past year and a half than we’ve had in quite a while. It wasn’t because I had become less informed or because I didn’t care anymore. It was because I had become disillusioned with the system that had brought us here, and just lost the desire to write about it.
