The house is a mess.

The sink has arrived. The faucet is here. The tile is on hold, ready for pick up. The cabinets (we think) are here in a week. The contractor *might* show up on Wednesday, so we had to pull everything out of all the kitchen cabinets to get ready to have him tear them out. It's a mess. Not a fine mess. A fucking mess.

I am soothing myself by blasting Beanie Segal singing, "Rock the Mic." I tried to You Tube it up for everyone, but Beanie's record label seems to have a problem with sharing.

But on a happier note, this is the end:



Goodbye, George.

OPEN THE CHAMPAGNE AND LET'S PARTY!!!

Here's hoping we never have to hear him speak again. Last week I caught his final meeting with the press corps. EMBARASSING.

Regarding contractors - they aren't all horrible but like lawyers there are very few out there who are honest, hard working and reliable. My husband who owns his own contracting business represents this minority and consequently is busier than ever, even in this economy.

I just heard on the news that they will be showing Barack's Inagural Balls.

Hee hee.

Is it weird that I'm suddenly like "I feel sorry for they guy?" It's not his fault that he's an idiot. He did his best? maybe? okay...the "hope" has gotten to me. I suppose I'm being entirely too gracious....

I am getting a good giggle at the photographer's cruelty.

If anyone thinks that anything substantial is going to change, I have a bridge I would like to sell you. LOL

Look at all the "change" so far. Recycled Clintonistas!

hello gorgeous said...

I had to delete my comment about W. Issuing in a new era of good will, I'm too happy today to be negative. Even to you, Anon.

I love the photo. The uselessness of his hands--it says it all.

Jennifer said...

Don't let the door hit you on the way out!

Tami said...

HALLELUJAH! Hell, I'd rather have recycled Clintonistas with a new President, new ideas and new hope than recycled Bushtas anyday. If I recall correctly we had a surplus with Clinton (and staff) and Bush just F&%# that all up plus some!

THANK GOD it's over! I've been waiting for this day forever! Good ridance you moron. Good luck keeping your simple mind busy in retirement. Lord knows there isn't a whole lot going on up there.

Utopia starts today.

Puhlease.

It will be uptopia compared to what we just lived through with Bush!

If change is going to come, then stop the bushbashing already. It's a new era, time to be positive, open-minded and tolerant of all. Bush is a moral and honest person, and did represent our country, for better or worse. Move on........

Rachel said...

Hope the mess in your kitchen gets all sorted out and finished soon!!
Fingers crossed that your contractor decided against fishing!

Move on? Bush is not moral. He has blood on his hands and took a figurative dump on the Constitution. After 8 years of him taking our country in the wrong direction, people are allowed to not move on until he shows sincere contrition about his actions.

"Bush is a moral and honest person"

He did not have enough brain power to be either.

And more to the point: He was incompetent.

I hope he gets raped in prison.

The Left is still full of rage. Calm down, please.

Everyone wants change so bad but how can we create change when we can't respect one another? The disgusting disrespect for human kind is why we won't change and that shows here in these comments alone. One step forward, two steps back. It is sad how people can put down somebody and then support someone who says we should all come together as a nation. How can we all come together if we can't learn to respect one another? I know too many are going to say "respect is earned not given." I say bs on that. Respect is reciprocal. When we give respect, we also get respect in return. Try it!

Lolo said...

The "Left" probably is full of rage but today The Mall was full of joy, jubilation and celebration.

We were out tonight and when I toasted and said "Happpy America Day!!" every single person in the place raised their glasses and cheered.

No worries for you guys who are gagging on the swill of whatever it is that buoys you though. There are many, manymanymany places on the internets for you to commiserate with likeminded haters. It's plain that the author of this blog doesn't quite share your feelings and so, it's yet another place for us to crow with delight.

In the words of the Reverend Lowry "help us work for that day when black will not be asked to give back, when brown can stick around, when yellow will be mellow, when the red man can get ahead, man, and when white will embrace what is right."

Oh stop it, already.I am truly happy for you Obama supporters and see lots of good coming from this historic election. Truly. However, would it ever occur to any of you Bush bashing commenters that many of us in the art & design field supported President Bush? It's true. Just like we now support President Obama with the respect due anyone in the office.It is the height of arrogance & rudeness to resort to personal attacks against those who think differently than you."Moron"? "Idiot"? "You hoped he gets raped in prison"? Really? Since the election, I have adjusted my attitude, determined to be part of the solution in this country - despite my ideological differences with President Obama. I suggest those of you still sputtering negative bush bile do the same.

I watched. I was moved and filled with hope. I also believe that W meant well, but should never have been president. I am one of the non-believers, but I, too, am touched by the magic.

I hope he can continue to inspire, but fear that it's just a matter of time until he pisses much of America off for one reason or another. It's like the second coming right now. I hope it is. Good luck to you guys and all the rest of us.

Hopefully yours from Canada.

Susianna:

"Moron" in this case is a fact, not an opinion.

I for one will miss Dubya, but am very happy to have him back with us in Dallas! (no, really) I think No Drama Obama can only take a fall from where he is now. However, the inauguration was nice. Really disliked Michelle's ball gown, and she needs to steer clear of yellows. They make her look sallow. :P That is all.

And all those crazy Texans (in Waco) "welcoming George home"

God, that makes me cringe.

Anonymous said...

Are you serious?

I thought Michelle's ball gown was absolutely stunning!

The pair of them were a knockout!

Anonymous said...

He's all yours, Texas!

(I dare say, only Texas would take him.)

When he shows up (usually doesn't) around these parts, there are massive protests.

No doubt George will continue with his bloated, rape-the-earth, Texas-style high-livin'.

Moral? That is laugh out loud funny. I can't believe anyone actually believes that.

db said...

I love seeing threads like this on non-political sites. It's reassuring to know that everyone's thinking about the larger world, in addition to trying to prettify their immediate one.

I am so happy to see Bush go. And I don't think it's hating on him to be critical. He's not disliked for the color of his skin, or his sexual orientation, or his gender -- he's disliked because of his incredibly incompetent actions as president. Holding that against him is entirely fair.

I was dying of laughter when I saw the title of this post next to the picture of GW....you know that's what he's thinking as he walks out that door for the last time, "God, the house is a mess" (figuratively of course) "Come to think of it, so is pretty much everything else I touched is a mess, too!"

Thanks for the (possibly unintentional) laugh!

and George, Thank YOU for Standing up and defending our constitution and doing whatever was the right thing to do, but was not the necessarily popular thing to do, you are a good man George, you will be missed by many!

Iheartfashion said...

I can't believe anyone actually believes that Bush did what he thought was morally right. He is totally repugnant, and sullied America's (and Christians') name throughout the world. It will take decades to undo the damage.
Whew! Time to move on...
