Movin' right along...

Sorry for the dead air here lately, I haven't spent much time at the PC.

Apparently my office is moving today, so I won't have internet access at work for a few days. I've got most of the stuff boxed up. I have no idea where the new office is.

Also, I have an appointment with the temp agency on Thursday, so yes... we are moving the office, even though I won't be in it for 90% of the time. I don't get it either.

Also, sick to death of hearing about that "runaway bride" on TV. She freaked. She fled. And lets ponder, for a moment, why only attractive people get national news coverage? Cute children, women with a hook... Perfectly normal people go missing all the time. We had 2 young mothers go missing locally, I never saw them on CNN. I guess they weren't cute enough or their stories weren't compelling enough.

And another thing- If she "snapped" under the "pressure of a wedding" what do you stupid twats on the morning chat shows think you're doing by hyperanalyzing every little move she and her fiancee make. Are you not multiplying the "pressure" she's facing? Dumb fucks.

Heading to the Greenhouse after work today, and I can't wait. This is an annual tradition with my mom and I. We go, pick out plants for the rock garden, front bank, porch boxes, and patio. (Mom loves the flowers.) I lobby for another Peony and some more poppies (red ones)and usually get shot down. (I can't help it, those are my favorites.) I may commandeer some pots for basil & cilantro.

Also, in herb related news, I will, most likely, have a bumper crop of catnip and mint. I can dry some and mail it, or it does hold up reasonably well in towelling, for any who are interested. We don't use pesticide, or cultivate it. It just grows like crazy, all summer long.

Apparently one of the kids I used to babysit (changed his diapers, actually- yes, I feel old) is coming over to help mom plant this year. I won't be able to, because I'm working Saturday. (The codger corral owns my soul, apparently.)

Alright, off to go turn off Katie Couric (TV was on when I got here).

Seriously, ET. I mean, no, you shouldn't do that, and you shouldn't make fake phone calls to 911 when you realize your family has started a nationwide manhunt for you -- and you should definitely at least TRY to repay some or all of the monies spent by state and local cops plus the Feebs to find your ass -- but that doesn't mean the media should pillory you. (I read an article about fake kidnappings and how they aren't entirely uncommon about six months ago that stuck with me -- the only reason they're such a huge issue is the amount of money they spend on even a localized manhunt. Usually they are stress-induced, extreme reactions, not just an attempt to seek attention.)

I every once in a while accidentally encounter Bill O'Ugh Reilly on talk radio, and he was going off on his moral high horse about how it's all the fault of the Me Generation -- somehow I think people had stress induced psychotic breaks before the Baby Boomers, but how should I know...according to him, I'm part of the most selfish generation ever, so I guess I don't have the right to have an opinion.

I should have clarified- I don't think that the way she did it was right, and she'd better be making an attempt to repay the money spent on searching for her ass. A phonecall costs 50 cents, and she should have made the attempt.

My bigger beef is with the press First for, once realizing it was a non-story, continuing to lead with it days later (the Today show had another lead this morning about how she MIGHT have a press conference today). And second, for seemingly only profiling those who are attractive or sensational enough.

Enough of letting this story hog the spotlight, why not profile some legitimately missing people? (I'm looking at YOU, katie C.)
