Doing

Yes.  I haven't written.

It seems that the days are just running all together.  I cannot wait until this election is over.  The rhetoric is getting disgusting - from the Palin * McCain camp.  Assholes.

The Stock Market crap is depressing.  Money matters in any form act as a trigger for my depression.  I've had a great month, eh?

Thank God for "defined benefit" pension plans.  If my pension were subject to the fluctuations of the economy, I'd be up shit's creek.  The State of Michigan owes me a set amount of money per month for the rest of my life.  The young folks that are stuck with a "defined contribution" plan had better manage their monies wisely.  I sure as hell couldn't ever... 

Anyway, I'm still walking and losing weight and inches...

I love Mexico.  I love Billy.  I love living here with my companion.

Later.

Still

Day and night
sunrise and dusk
noon's blistering sun

Seasons

Polar

When you are where your mind is?
Does it?
Help?

Note to Self

I saw a Republican talking head on Chris Matthew's Hardball this afternoon.  The LIAR stated that Senator John McCain was "vindicated" in the Keating Five Scandal.  And, no one rebutted him and called him out for such a clear lie.  If calling a formal Senate reprimand was vindication then the guy is an idiot or a liar.  John McCain stood on the the floor of the Senate and admitted his guilt.

Let's see if any other Republicans try this shit.  They love to re-write history.  Sorry, you young asshole, I was alive at the time and I remember Mr. McCain's dishonor.

Dishonorable.

Swings used to be fun.

I have to admit that this time around I'm having some cycling that seems quick to change. It's those darn triggers. Money and lying liars. Black Monday and the weeks that followed have put me in a right mood even though my pension shouldn't be affected by all the turmoil. We will be okay.

Liars. John McCain and Sarah Palin sure take a lot of liberties with the truth. Verifiable. Frequent. Dishonorable.

I tried a change in antidepressants to save money. No deal. I'll skip a few meals out to take the chemicals that have been working for many years. My doctor agrees. He was concerned when he hadn't seen me in several days and actually sent my brother over to my house to get me to call him. I showered, dressed, and rode on the back of big brother's 4-wheeler, a popular mode of travel in town, to see the doctor. I'll be checking in with the doctor tomorrow after my exercise. The very end of my walk takes me by his farmacia on the plaza so we exchange pleasantries nearly every day.

I love to walk in the morning. My old routes are impassable due to the rise in the level of the lake. The beautiful and peaceful public park west of the pier is under water. I'm making 6 trips from the lake to the plaza now. I need to take a detour somewhere to make the walk more interesting. With my current rate of down-down days, I seem to be able to get out of bed and out of the house about 4 mornings per week. Yeah, me...

Muscle are being built and inches have melted away. I'm still somewhere around 95 kilos, but I've lost so much fat that I can get into some more of Billy's clothes. I just can't wear those extra-large shirts anymore. My goal is to get down to just under 90 kilos. If I carry my "extra" weight in my leg muscles, I won't feel bad. Nor, do I feel bad about cheating with an occasional sweet treat now that I'm walking off 26 years of being overweight and obese.

I got my monthly vitamin shot (injection or Jab for Brits) last week. I want some more carnitine ..... It gives me a little boost in energy while burning fat. Not to worry. I know when to stop serious dieting. I'll be addicted to walking then, and I'll be able to eat all the tacos, tamales, and bacon-wrapped hotdogs I desire. Mmmmm, maybe tomorrow, I will stop by one of the food stands near the big pharmacy on the main drag and indulge in something new.

I'm too depressed to rant about the election. I want it over.

I have some other ideas.

We know how that can go.

Quick Hit

Shuckin' and Jivin'

It was a shuck and jive.  Right from the start and includin' all the fuckin' g's she dropped.  The cutesy accent was phoney.  Go and watch a YouTube of Governor Palin when she debated other candidates for the office just two years ago.

And, the lies!  Jimminy Cricket, she sure does tell some whoppers, too.  Ask Andrew.

Look at this Wiki definition:

Shuckin' and jivin' (or shucking and jiving) is a slang term primarily used by African Americans. It refers to the speech and behavioral mechanisms adopted in the presence of an authority figure [1]. Shuckin' and jivin' usually involves clever lies and impromptu storytelling, used to one-up an opponent or avoid punishment [2]. Such behavior is believed to have originated in the era of slavery [3].

These folks are truley evil.  And, it seems, desperate.

Yessiree, cynical.

What?

I don't know why the United States Senate has "dropped in" mental health parity as part of the Wall Street/Main Street Bailout Plan.  It seems more appropriate for the parity issue to be voted on by its own merits in a single bill or insurance reform package.  Anyway, it just seems strange.  Welcome, but strange.
