Monday Already? Crap.

Seems as though I just shut the alarm on the clock down for the weekend and there it is going off again, somehow tuned between radio stations so I get the worst of both. I forget to tune it in, maybe just as well, it is so annoying there's no way to fall back asleep.

Looks as though we'll be sprucing up the ol' shanty, AKA The Tiny House. Might even slap a new coat of paint on her, never know. Working on some drawers for the kitchen, the cheesy ones that came with the house are falling a part, damn you Dietz-Crane (the builders of Tiny House, using the term build loosely).

A few short days and we'll have the first African American president and so far it appears that's all he has going for him. Didn't take long for the senate to slam dunk his recovery plan, even his pals in the Dem party didn't seem too impressed. Fortunately I have the commemorative plate. Ok, it's paper and it was minted by the George and Weezy Jefferson plate company. Got a certificate and everything. It ain't for eatin' off of, just for lookin' at. Got the coins too, of course they're chocolate (no pun intended) and unfortunately are starting to prove chocolate and Arizona are not a good mix. Have to move them to the freezer before they become a commemorative puddle.

Watching the John Addams miniseries DVDs I got for Christmas - I already went through the Kung Fu ones my daughter gave me - they were great, but John Addams is a bit more realistic, though I have seen a couple parts where a little crouching tiger wire fight would pick things up. I just had to look, having read the book. Still trying to figure out why Gates wanted to attack Canada, unless he wanted to start his own Hockey team.

Have A Lion in the Whitehouse in the queue, will start that one soon. It is interesting to see how our republic was formed and how far we've strayed. Of course Jackson really bent the Indians over (Trail of Tears) so he won't get a life time pass to the local casino any time soon. Seems when they wrote the All men created equal part Women, Indians and slaves weren't included. Had to appease the South to get the Declaration passed and even Washington felt the Indians were just in the way. It has been interesting to see that a lot of the political skullduggery we have today isn't new, though I didn't read about any of the founding fathers heading out to the privy to pick up guys.

There's a couple other series that I'd like to get eventually. The Revolution and Generation Kill are tow of them and I suppose it is time to get Ken Burn's The Civil War on DVD - don't know how much longer the old VHS machine is going to hold out...

Hey, thanks for delurking on my blog today! The best part of Delurking Day is that I get to discover new and interesting blogs, and yours definitely fits that description!

I noticed a few Arizona bloggers on my list. Arizona is such a great, weird state. I love it!

Anyhoo, I'll definitely be visiting your blog again.

Of course you didn't read about the founding fathers doing that, they wrote the history books. All those 'tea' parties, yeah, that was just a euphemism for privy pick-ups.

it was probably not considered the thing to do to hang around the outhouse back them more then absolutely necessary. they probably pulled up that cloak and lurched through the back alleys...

Cheer up Phossy, its Wednesday morning here already, nearly the week end again. ♥

I have Gettysburg on DVD and Ken Burn's The Civil War, both interesting to watch. Have you seen Glory with Matthew Broderick, its really worth watching if you are interested in the Civil War. ♥

You still have a VHS? You be Old School, Daddy-O!

I boycott everything Burns and PBS does on principal. And I'd smack him if I met him cause of the way he parts his hair.
