Is Sarah Palin a Policitian or Stand-Up Comedian?

Without getting into a HUGE political debate (O-BAMA-O-BAMA), I must say, I'm confused. Is she giving speeches or perfecting her comedy routine?

Now, don't get me wrong. I like my politicians to have wit and charm. But I also like them to be able to speak about ISSUES without delivering a BADDA-BING after every point.

I just met this gal last week and she's already making me tired. Silly bobblehead.

I fear the average American will vote for her, thinking they're putting Tina Fey into office and at least she'll be good for a laugh over the next four years. Or maybe they think that was here on SNL.

My Brain Hurts

All I have been doing since Friday is stressing out about buying/changing airline tickets, travel dates, hotel reservations, talking on the phone to airlines and basically ripping my hair from my head.

I think I have a career as a travel agent in my future. Obviously, I have the experience. I know more about the available flights, schedules, and change fees than the representatives I'm talking to. Sorda.

I think we are sorted out now.

I hope.

FM REALLY believes there's a magic basket

Here was my schedule for Labor Day, Monday, September 1, 2008:
  • 6:30: Wake Up
  • 6:30-7:00: Drink coffee to wake up
  • 7:00-7:30: Get pretty
  • 7:30 - 8:15: Make breakfast for our golfing foursome
  • 8:15 - 8:30: Wait for foursome to show up
  • 8:30 - 9:00: Entertain foursome, eat breakfast, drink more coffee
  • 9:00 - 9:30: Ride a half hour in a taxi to golf course, while getting lost a couple times
  • 9:30 - 10:00 Rent clubs, get briefed on specific rules of tournament, organize bags, take a pee, buy water, smoke some cigarettes. etc.
  • 10:00: Walk to appropriate tee box
  • 10:15-10:30: Wait for foursome ahead of us to tee off.
  • 10:30 - 4:00: Play some really bad golf with a couple good shots thrown in to keep us coming back.
  • 4:00 -4:20: Unpack rental bags, bid our caddies good-bye, take another shower
  • 4:20 - 5:00: Drink beer in the clubhouse while waiting for food
  • 5:00 - 5:30: Eat semi-decent food, hungrily
  • 5:30 - 6:00: Award ceremony for those who actually played decent golf and booby prizes for those of us who didn't
  • 6:00 - 6:30: Drink more beer
  • 6:30 - 7:00: Wait for taxi to come and pick us up
  • 7:00 - 7:30: Ride home in taxi
  • 7:30 - 8:30: Take a "nap"

So, at 8:30 we discuss going for dinner, but decide to eat nectarines and pistachio nuts instead, watch a little TV and get ready for bed around 10:30. And, what does FM ask me?

"Did any laundry get done today?"


I am confused. Exactly who does he think has been doing the laundry for the last six months?
