This isn't worth a whole new post, but I thought it was interesting.

my morning so far....
4am - awoken by a mosquito buzzing my ear. He had feasted on my arm all night - I have like 5 red spots on my arm and probably the plague, the west nile virus, and hysterical pregnancy.

9am - the Citibank Fraud department calls...
My corporate card for work was just used for $4,000 at a Home Depot. WTF?
Kudos to Citibank for spotting that.

Now they send me a new card and an affidavit to sign saying that I didn't spend 4K on lumber or paint.

At first I thought they said "Frog" instead of "Fraud".
"Sir, this is the Citibank Frog department - as part of our Frog early warning system...."


Yea, I have that political fatigue.

Annoy us
Kerry's performance, in all three debates, I thought has been consistently the same - although during this last one, I thought he just seemed a little tired (imagine that).
As far as Bush, I think his best performance was the second one - maybe it was good for him to stretch his legs and walk around a lot. Last night's giggling frat-boy performance about annoyed the hell out of me.

I know this man has a bit of a sense of humor, but his delivery of zingers and jokes stunk last night. Being that the crowd was bound and gagged, it was if he would deliver the joke and awkwardly sit there waiting for the uproarious laughter that never came.
Bush's attacks on Kerry - "Liberal senator from Massachusetts" zing!
"Ted Kennedy" zing!
"tax and spend" zing!
Those were all great lines...
in 1988.

Pay as you go
I need to research this more, but I thought Bush's rebuttal to Kerry's statement was pretty inane.
KERRY: During the 1990s, we had pay-as-you-go rules. If you were going to pass something in the Congress, you had to show where you are going to pay for it and how....

BUSH: He talks about PAYGO. I'll tell you what PAYGO means, when you're a senator from Massachusetts, when you're a colleague of Ted Kennedy, pay go means: You pay, and he goes ahead and spends.

I wonder what Dan Quayle is up to these days?
