Musings

  • I’m sad to say that, even after months of lobbying on my behalf, I will not be chosen as President Trump’s pick to take the open seat on the Supreme Court.
    • That’s probably a good thing.
    • That whole “Fell asleep trying to read the statutes on distilling of spirits while doing research for Irish Woman” thing is probably what torpedoed my eligibility.
  • Recently, our cable company gave Irish Woman a great deal on internet, TV, and phone which brought our bill down lower than just having Internet.  So, we’ve gone back to cable TV.
    • I’m thrilled to say that now we have access to all of the infomercials, political rants on sports channels, and television shows about home decorating, making illegal moonshine, and sifting through the over-stuffed homes of dead people that we could ever want.
    • No, really, I’m thrilled.  Can’t you tell?
  • Girlie Bear asked me to purchase this tee shirt for her today.
    • Being the indulgent father I am, I purchased it.
    • I also wished her luck doing all of the pushups she would be told to do for wearing it.
    • When she asked why she would be doing pushups, I replied that her ROTC instructors were actually good at war, while she was merely an energetic puppy showing her teeth.

    The tee shirt was almost a Battle Bunny reference.

    Based on my reading of the law some years ago, don’t distill at home.
    And a quick google check finds this.

    Music to accompany reading the link would be Meghan Trainor’s song, No.
    In theory you can apply for permission to distill at home as motor fuel.

    Snicker. I rocked a “Shut up and jump” shirt to an elective PT my first semester in ROTC.

    Got some looks until a I tactfully informed the cadre that I was prior enlisted and considerably more than five jumps.
