#3554: "Time has run out."

Israel and US are apparently working at cross purposes.
Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu got into a diplomatic shouting match with US Ambassador Dan Shapiro over US President Barack Obama's handling of Iran's nuclear program, saying "time has run out" for diplomacy.
I expect that Israel has resources telling them that Iran is getting very close to having functional nuclear weapons, and if that's so, something's got to be done soonest lest we all wake up with bricked computers.

Romney tours New Orleans before it even occurs to Obama that he ought to have done that first. Ace points out that Obama is technically the head of FEMA, so....

Obama being too busy campaigning to do the typical "leader" thing is pretty damned funny.

That bottle of Cholula hot sauce I bought a couple of weeks ago? It's already half gone. It's mild enough that you can use plenty on tacos or burritos, and it's got an excellent smoky overtone to its mild pepper flavor that can't be beat.

I used to be able to eat pepperoncini right from the jar, but after some stomach troubles in the 1990s I lost my asbestos tongue. (I can still eat "Three Mile Island" wings from Hooters, though.) More than a dab of Tobasco vulcanizes my mouth, but this stuff is really good.

Which is why I've used so much of it.

...I've been dabbing it on pork rinds as well as having it on tacos/burritos, which is why I've used so much of it. I've never used hot sauce this quickly.

Yesterday was pretty tiring, what with the phone call from the recruiter, getting paperwork dealt with, and so on. I was too excited to sleep, so I ended up sleeping after the phone call, and kept being awakened by telemarketers and other things.

You'd think I could at least get to sleep at a reasonable time, but no, when 5 AM came around and I still hadn't fallen asleep I took the other half of the Xanax tab I'd taken with my usual bedtime pills.

So, now I feel like a zombie. *sigh*

Tomorrow is September. Two thirds of the year has passed already. WTF.

  • #7607: Oh, yeah

    Had another opportunity today to play Pat Metheney's "Spring Ain't Here", because it snowed for most of the morning. But yeah, "global warming"…


    Some fatuous pinhead on the radio said that Chicago was ready for "looting and other forms of protest". But you know what? It's fine. We no longer…

  • #7605: I don't even need lettuce any longer

    See, the tacos I make at home blow away any tacos I've ever had anywhere else. Lettuce used to be necessary, but now it just gets in the way, so I…
