Irony has a bitter taste

What a miserable day.

I couldn't read the news without feeling my lips curl back over my teeth; at first it was disgust, then anger. Those idiots will still be arguing over the throttle and the steering-wheel when the train has jumped the track into the canyon below.

It's not that I want him to fail; it's only that I know that he can't succeed.

So, I pour myself another coffee, add a few splashes of scotch, then make my way to the washroom for a brief session with an antique razor and a beard-trimmer. Afterwards, I plod back to the kitchen for a helping of the chili verde from last night. Creature-comforts.

The words "hope" and "change" make me want to vomit tequila-flavored rainbows, but they're precisely what I need in my life right now.

Well, I for one wasn't much interested in the national orgasm known as the inauguration. And I see some change on the horizon, but not much hope.

Anyway, I'm hoping you get whatever you need for a satisfactory life, Feral. ;)

And remember - no matter how bad things are, there's always someone else out there who has it a lot worse.

Thanks, Triton. I'm working towards better things, but I was caught in the shadow of the mountain of things to do. Things look a little better now.

It's like that old joke: How do you eat an elephant?

One bite at a time.

Feral Bestial One - Wow, you can vomit tequila-flavored rainbows? I'm so talent - less... *sigh*

Triton - Yeah, someone could actually know your name.. that's how bad it could be ;-)

Now, both of you, SUCK IT UP BUTTERCUP!

Orginally, I had written only "rainbows", but I rarely meet someone (locally, anyway) that didn't have a "tequila story". It's just a malicious substance.

We're all doing our utmost to suck it up here. Evidently, our leaders haven't totally given up on the "trickle-down" theory of suck. :)

Is that similar to the spit/swallow debate?

I didn't watch. And was glad I didn't. Even today, one day hence, I hear the tripe that was said there that day and I almost need to vomit.

Such grand, arching speech. Such uplifting, hopeful prose. Such empty vapid bull-shite.

Oh, sorry I forgot, I don't get a vote here. Because white still has yet to do right. Or some such rhyming reverend racist rubbish.

Well, that's part of the reason we have the Bible.

Except that the second time around, the "for real" time, there was no bible.
