Do you guys have any idea how good apples and cinnamon smell cooking on the stove?
I'm still waiting for my robo-call. I got them from McCain during the primaries, but for the general??? Cheap bastard. (Just kidding, I know he has other priorities)
I have three new books. Well, they are new to me. I bought them used and they've been out for a few years... problem is... with this wealth of new reading material, I don't know which one to start on first.
Another quandary, do I go vote early, or do I do the traditional thing and join my neighbors and friends at the polling place on Nov. 4th? I'm thinking on voting early. Starting on Oct. 27th the early voting place is open til 6pm. That way I can go after Pete gets home from work and I won't have to ask for the car. He might even come vote early with me. Seeing all these long lines... I can only imagine what Nov. 4th will be like. Lord knows I don't want to have to stand in line for hours. That doesn't sound fun at all. I mean, it's good that so many people are voting, but still... election boards across the country should have been more ready for the large numbers of people who we've all known for months are interested in this election. Now they want to act like the numbers are totally unexpected. Puh-leeze!
Well, whatdaya know? Just got my first robo-call of the general election season! I'm so excited. Whoopee! Can't ya tell? It wasn't a McCain call. It was for congressman Paul Braun. It went something like this, "Hello friend, this is Pat Boone. Yes... Love Letters In Sand, Pat Boone. I'm calling on behalf of my friend congressman Paul Braun..." that's about the time I hung up. I listened long enough to see who he was calling on behalf of, and then, click. I never did like Pat Boone anyway. I think I'd vote for "the other guy" just because I don't like him.
The older I get the more like my mother I look.
Alan Greenspan, the former Fed Chair, was up on the Hill today answering questions posed to him by members of the House. This dude was the top money man in the nation, perhaps the world, for the better part of two decades. And the best he could come up with when asked why he didn't see this coming was "our models were wrong"!!! Come on! After all this time, that's the best you can do? Two decades of running the show and you can't even make the effort to come up with a half-arsed short story for us? All he has to say for himself is HE GOT IT WRONG?! The dude sure has got lazy since he retired. Sheesh. I want a refund. I don't feel like I got my money's worth.
I made some outrageously, awesomely delicious whole grain roti for supper tonight. I used whole wheat flour, Indian millet flour, whole grain rye flour and I used barley flour on the board when I was rolling them out. They turned out soooo good. Then I made pork and potato curry to go with. Darned good stuff! Hubby had a sausage and cheese omelet, not being a big fan of Indian food. I also made a batch of apple walnut tarts. The house smells so good. I can't describe it.
Now I'm going to go put my foot up and watch the rest of Hardball. Then I'll watch Keith and Rachel and then, hopefully, I'll be ready to fall asleep. See ya!
