Grand Rapids Marathon


Today I ran the Grand Rapids Marathon. It took me 5 hours and 3 minutes. My legs hurt, but I did it. BTW, that's 26.2 miles of awesomeness.

Babies + Drill = WRONG!



At recent Republican rallies, they have been chanting "Drill baby drill!". Sarah Palin even mentioned it during the debate. Babies and drills do not mix. Babies should not be allowed to operate any power tools, and drills are probably one of the most dangerous power tools a baby could operate. Why do the Republicans hate babies? It is obvious what would happen if a baby got hold of a power drill. Besides the risk of serious damage to property, the baby could get hurt! The sound alone would probably scare the baby and make it cry.

Or do the Republicans actually want to drill babies? This is even worse. And they claim to respect life. Bullshit. What kind of sick agenda do the Republicans have if all they want to do is drill holes in defenseless babies? That is just un-American.

We have to stop these sick bastards. Vote Obama on November 4th, and lets stop these sick Republican bastards from hurting the babies.

Saturday: This is what happened

Golfed with Brian at Indian trails. Tom set up the golf outing. Also present: Mike, Joe, Nikki, Courtney, Samantha, Chris and a bunch of other couple of other people I didn't know. Brian and I went off first, and we golfed horribly. We got a fifty in best-ball scramble.

We sat in lawn chairs and had a couple beers and waited on everyone else to finish. They took forever.

After that we went to BW3s. I had an Irish beer, can't remember what it is called, on the recommendation of Alyssa, the blond waitress with very straight, very white teeth. Oh yeah, and I had a combo platter of ribs, boneless chicken wings, and fries.

Then I dropped off a machine at an apartment that smelled like pot. The Lexmark printer wouldn't connect. Outside, the guy was welding on the frame of a car.

Then I went to Founders and had two beers. It was Harvest Festival.

Deb called and told me to come home. On the way back I saw somebody run up on the curb and blow out their tire.

Dropped the girls to the movie "City of Ember". Deb and I had dinner at a Japanese Sushi restaurant across the street.

Saw a guy put his keys in his gas cap and go to lunch with his family. I put a note in there that said, "Why do you put your keys here?"

Fun Fact!

The first sentence of the Declaration of Independence is 71 words long:
"When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation."

PSA: don't shoot yourself!

Okay, this is setting a bad precedent. There was a story in the news about a 90 year old lady who was getting evicted. Sad enough. She goes and shoots herself. Even worse.

But here's the worse part of all: Fannie Mae erased her mortgage. What does that tell all the desperate, possibly unstable, end-of-the-rope people getting foreclosed on and evicted? "Shoot yourself, you'll get out of your mortgage."

I predict more of these "You'll never take me alive" stories. You can't get give people ideas like this.

Oh yeah, didn't MY friggin' tax money go to bail out Fannie Mae? I don't recall them asking me if this lady could get off the hook. I mean, no wonder they're going under, being all soft-hearted just because some old bag shoots herself. <--(I'm only kidding! Jeez)
