I channel surfed, trying to catch the ladies semi-finals at the U.S. Open - which was cancelled due to rain. So until college football started, I watched OLD U.S. Open matches (from '91 and '99). I so need a life.
With a massive headache (and neck pain), I still have babysitting duties to contend with, but thegrandson was playing at various neighbors houses, for the most part. I finally called him in to dinner around 5:30 pm, as I wanted him to "clean" the living room and his toy room. For whatever reason, my living room has become Lego Central. Two boxes of parts and constructed projects take up the tables, chair and couch. If nothing else, I would like to have a presentable living room, but to date...that is so not happening.
After thedaughter got home from work, I tried again at 8 pm (the scheduled time) to watch the U.S. Open - well - the Ghost Whisperer was on, so I assumed (bad idea) that there would be no tennis last night. When I started drifting through the channels at 11 pm - THE U.S. OPEN WOMEN'S SEMI-FINALS WAS ENDED!! WTF?!?!? I am a master at surfing the channels and I missed the match.
This morning, I find that Serena Williams was eliminated. I liked the Williams sisters when they were fledglings on the circuit, but as they became greater, they also became arrogant and snotty - losing me as a fan. Nevertheless, apparently Serena had a nasty time during the match, breaking her racket and garnering penalty points at one time. At the end, and she was losing, she had a foot fault, resulting in a double fault and loss of point - and she went off on the poor line judge, just doing her job. BTW, foot faults are rarely called, but not totally unheard of. On the video available of this incident, the crowd is so loud, one cannot really hear what Serena is saying to the judge, but it had something to do with cramming a tennis ball down her throat. TACKY! The end result, was a personal penalty, which lost the match for Serena. I'm OK with this, as I liked Kim Clijsters from many years ago, before she retired to become a mommy.
How about that "million-man Teabagger's March" in Washington, D.C., yesterday? The D.C., fire department estimate was between 60-70,000 people. Enough to fill a football stadium. But they claim victory and all the mantras that go along with fanatics.
I was really pissed over some of the signs that were revealed. One, I will not even post, was an anti-Obama sign on the ground with horse shite on top - and people were taking pictures of such a "wonderful sight." This is such an unintelligent bunch of cretins.
These folks have no idea what FASCISM really means!
Again, these people have no RESPECT!!
A prime example of REDNECK mentality!
The "GLENN BECK IS MY HERO" around this guy's neck - says it all - STUPID!!
As for "Muslim Marxist" - take your hate and go home fool!!
I wasn't impressed at all with any person who was stopped and interviewed. There were those who were promoting Joe Wilson and his claim of "you lie", those who refuse to let Obama touch their Medicare, and scream against Socialism.....more dumb, therefore.....FAIL!
