When you are pro-war even the abortion doctors call you "baby-killer."


Obligatory Political Post

This Talking Points Memo guy (hello, rip off O'Reilly lately?) is totally short-stroking himself over seeing John "F-ing" Kerry at a rally.

Take a look at this:

"Success breeds success and confidence breeds ease and a relaxed manner. Both are evident here."

The guy wins the Iowa Caucus, which most everybody thinks is absolutely worthless in the grand scheme of things, and suddenly he walks 1" above the ground? The only thing he's relaxed about is not having to put his wife's artwork collection in hock in addition to his wife's house now that he's seen as the frontrunner. Naturally he will start getting an influx of cash negating the need to visit the pawn shop with his wife's tea set. The little-guy's candidate married old money and acts as though a philly cheese steak is covered in dog piss as he eats it. Meanwhile Bush drives himself around his ranch deep in Texas, slopping through the mud, bouncing the leader of Russia around the cab and is considered elitist out of touch with the common man? Ooookay.



Okay so everything is fine with our oldest daughter. She is now minus two tonsils, some unspecified amount of adenoids (deep inside your nasal cavity) and one front-tooth.

This all happened after an initial E/N/T consult Tuesday, and was all paid for by insurance from top to bottom. In fact we made money (Daughter got $1 in quarters from the Tooth Fairy for losing the tooth). My wife pointed out that had we been in Canada this would never have happened this fast, we'd probably be waiting for several months to get to the E/N/T and then more months to get the surgery.

Tell me again how we need socialized medicine in this country like up in The Great White North?

BTW we were shown the tonsils, all I have to say is ewwwwwwwww.

Back in Black

Yeah, Internet was restored last night. We negotiated an agreement with Comcast to get the outstanding issues resolved, which basically means we paid the bill — rather begrudgingly I might add.

Our oldest daughter is heading in today for a tonsillectomy and possible having her adenoids removed. Having strep throat 6 times since school started is not fun and qualifies her for this procedure according to an E/N/T Doctor. Hopefully this surgery will fix it (and potentially her breathing problems during sleep). She will be down for at least a week straight and will have to take it easy another week after that.

I never had my tonsils taken out (I am completely as I came from the factory) so I have no idea what it will be like for her. Poor thing. She has no idea what is going to happen and isn't freaking out at all yet. Shes only 7 so I am sure she will freak out at least once before and after all this in the hospital.

Well I was told to defrost the eeeeeevil gas-gusling baby seal head-smashing SUV. More updates later.
