well, I'm an ass

about a month back I lauded Senator Pat "No, Eff YOU, Mister Cheney" Leahy and Representative Henry "Wax yr corrupt ass" Waxman for their efforts on calling the current criminal element in the Executive Branch (i.e., the entire bleeping Executive Branch) on the carpet for one or two of their many malfeasances and assorted felonies. given that the pace of official business in the nation's capital swamp moves even slower in dead summer, a month is about a frog's breath in the life cycle of a Congressional subpoena.

it's not that I expected some sort of progress to have happened by now on the "let's actually gather evidence on one of these crooks" front. It's that I once again suspended my own healthy disbelief and expected anything to actually happen beyond a dumbed-down dog and pony show. I pulled the wool over my own eyes and thought we might just get ourselves a real live impeachment donkey show at the end of it.

HA! So funny!

so for this evening I will self-administer a hearty slap and remember that whatever goes on in Washington, No Good Will Come Of It. And that goes double for the Nationals.


checking in from the wilderness

I haven't posted here in about a month, mostly due to building a new business. I am posting over at the PetBlog as part of the rollout, though.

The transition from librarian to pet sitter hasn't been that rough. I've essentially been on a sabbatical - alternately of industry and sloth - since November 2006, and with the youngest of my kids about to start school (in about an hour) I am finally free and clear to get back into the workforce thing.

My on-and-off off-time has taught me one thing for certain: I don't want to be a librarian anymore, at least not in the traditional sense. In fact, my basic unsuitability for the World of WorkCraft has I don't think I could work for someone as an employee now without getting fired for insubordination or even malingering. So, a decade-plus since I embarked on learning what seemed to be the only career option for the likes of me - the pseudoscience of librarianship - I'm starting on another new Quest as an entrepreneur in the wilds of pet care.
