The time has come

Time to vote.

Top Five Fridays

Favorite of Fall:

5) Wearing jeans again (even though they don't really fit me)

4) Playoffs (except this year)

3) Not sweating as much when towing the trailer around town

2) It's almost time for eggnog!

1) Pumpkins

I have one pair of pants that truly fit me. They are made out of hemp by Patagonia, the greatest retail company in the history of the world. (They gave $10,000, iirc, to RHH a few years ago.) In every other style of jeans, it seems, I have a size 8-10 waist and size 12-14 thighs; European-sized brands like Lucky seem to be especially bad, but Gap jeans are lousy, too. Linda says it's because my quads are huge from cycling, God love 'er (in the parlance of our times), but I suspect it's a combination of weird things happening to my body after having two kids, and clothing designers hating women.

Top Five Friday; late because I'm bitter and angry

Random tidbits from the debate:

5) Joe Biden spends a lot of time at Home Depot.

4) Apparently one doesn't need to know the causes of a problem in order to solve it.

3) Bosniaks.

2) O'Biden

1) "Yooo betcha!"

For some actual analysis of debate, see this post and this one by Josh Richman.

If any of you out there don't believe in curses, would you care to give me some other explanation as to what the f*&% just happened???
