HEY LOOK...Of course WE must be invited...

because we are footing the entire fukking tab!!

(Click to "large size")

WTF is this all about? I was raised by the old saying, "There is a time and a place!" And I don't see this as being either.

The U.S. economy has tanked, everyone is at the feet of the Congress with their hat in hand, people are losing their homes...and we could go on and on here. But this honestly isn't surprising, as Hank Paulson has to be one of the biggest idiots in the world, considering the mismanagement so far as to TARP funds. Can't he just slither away by January 19th - and we will never have to see his bald head again. (this is not an insult to bald men - I like most bald men!)

Now, Paulson is asking for the remaining funds allocated to TARP, to be released. I honestly don't think that is going to happen - as many have seen what a joke (fiasco) this has all turned out to be.


I tried to do a little shopping this morning, early afternoon...and now I am suffering severely. The pain in my back and shoulders is excruciating. I'm popping Naproxen as we speak. I just cannot stand or walk for long periods, or the consequences end up such as this. Actually, I am NOT really old. I will be 57 on Jan. 26th, but my body is rebelling against me. Years of abuse, many surgeries, which allow the arthritis to take over. But, I have that out of my system, no more pissing and moaning...at least for the moment.

It is 20* at the moment, going down to 16* overnight, with a wind chill of 7*. Argh.....this is so not my favorite weather. I can handle winter weather, such as snow at 35*, no wind chill, and no driving. Theson will be tickled to death to head home to cold weather - as I don't believe it snows in Egypt.

I'm glad I was able to finish the outside decorating before this dip in the temps. Thedaughter is off tomorrow, and I hope to FINISH the inside decorations. Then ON with the Holidays!

Enough for now...have a good evening all and Later..................

While I understand the outrage on the parties and the trips for AIG - as a former travel industry sales executive I know that the money was spent MONTHS ago. Hotels, reception halls, etc. have iron clad contracts. You pay if you cancel unless it is like 2 days after you signed the contract.

Can you imagine if it got out that they paid for the party by cancelling it? In Full?

I'd recommend heading south, but it's cold here, too.

I feel your pain. Literally and figuratively.

I was thinking the same thing as Mommy. Still - it's really a bad message. They are damned if they do, damned if they don't.

It's too cold where you are! It's 27 degrees here and I'm whining like a baby!

Have a good Saturday!

Just think of all those Billions as lovely parting gifts from aWol&Co. to his friends and campaign donors.
When it comes to winter, I either want to be where the snow stays on the ground for months at a time or no snow at all. In the areas in between, it seems like it is colder with no snow on the ground, cold and damp.

And something tells me that party isn't potluck, am I right??

It's cold here too, I know what you mean. My trick is to wear thin long johns or tights under my pants. Toasty!
