Have you done your patriotic duty, yet?

No, I haven’t run in awhile.  I’m feeling it, too.  I need to get out there and put in some miles, there just isn’t enough time in the day for me—or, more accurately, I’m not carving out enough time in the day.  Between school, work, church, the garden, the house, and a myriad of other projects taking 30 minutes to go torture myself is just not particularly high on the list.  I’m going to figure it out, though.  Marathons don’t run themselves.


Speaking of gardening, the looper worms are back.  One of those little bastards just about destroyed one of my sprouts plants.  He’s dead.  Damn dead.  And any of his friends are going to starve to death thanks to BT.  Micro organic pest solutions are so wonderful and I don’t have the slightest problem with killing so many destructive little worms.  Broccoli is popping up, sprouts are forming, lettuce is still producing prodigious amounts of yummy salad, and I’ve GOT MY FIRST TOMATO!!  Yes, a little Roma tomato has formed on its bud.  I’m so happy I could pee.


From the brief reports I was able to hear this morning the appearance of US naval vessels near a ship that was under threat from pirates caused the pirates to back the fuck off.  Hmmm…    Interesting turn of events.  Meanwhile the UNSC finally lived down to expectations and couldn’t even muster the relevance to issue a resolution, merely a statement.  Hooray.  At least they’re tacitly acknowledging that their resolutions don’t really mean anything if nobody is willing to enforce them.


Finally, have you done you patriotic duty?  Today is, after all, the last chance to file your income taxes and be, as Joe Biden would say, a patriot.  While you’re at it, be sure to send in an extra few bucks—especially if you think taxes should be higher.  After all, if you really think taxes should be higher, you shouldn’t need a law to be enacted to require you to pay more in taxes.  If you REALLY think taxes should be higher, then you should be willing to just volunteer to pay taxes at the rate you THINK they should already be set at.  And I know people are just lining up to pay more in taxes—that is, after all, what you voted for.
