I Know You're Asking

Q: Does Kat have anything original to say or is she just going to agree with other clever people?

A: No and Yes, just until my brain fog lifts. Outlook is cloudy.

A New Day

I quote Don The Baptist in his eloquent post:

I voted for John McCain today and he lost. I have to say I'm dissappointed. And yet, its a historic day for America. Barack Obama is this country's first black president. Just forty-five years after Dr. Martin Luther King's "I Have A Dream" speech on the Mall in Washington DC, that dream is seeing true fulfillment. To that I say amen. The people of my generation can stop bemoaning American racism. It no longer exists in any meaningful way. This election has nailed that coffin shut.John McCain's concession speech was nothing but class and a fitting valediction for the man. I wish President Elect Obama a great presidency. I pray for his safety. Most of all I wish for an end to the tit-for-tat, You-dissed-my-guy-so-I'll-diss-yours-politics of the past sixteen years. Can we get on with our normal lives again?

Fortune Cookie Wisdom

I just opened a fortune cookie and it held election advice:
Stick to things as they are, distrust novelties.

Although not schooled in foreign languages, I'm pretty sure "novelties" is the Chinese translation of Barack Obama.
I'm just sayin' . . .

My Time Zone

Once again, like obedient little soldiers, we've changed our clocks back 1 hour. Why? Because the government said so.

With the arrival of standard time the big lie returns: We got to sleep an extra hour. No WE didn't! Who came up with that crap? There were 24 hours in each day before and after this exercise in futility. We won't lose an hour when daylight savings time returns either. I hate to break it to you- no, that's not true, I love to set people straight.

I don't enjoy darkness at 5 PM. When it's dark so early I put my pjs on. Once I have my pjs on I get sleepy and go to bed. That means I awake at 4 AM. Guess what? It's STILL dark! It's like living in a bat cave.

Beginning next spring I will refuse to change my clocks either forward or backwards. Hawaii and Arizona don't change their clocks, why do I have to? In fact, I'm going to choose my own time zone. I will call it the Whatever The Hell Time I Want It To Be Timezone.


After watching non-stop political ads, listening to talking points and talking heads, I slipped into a coma only to emerge and discover IT'S NOT OVER! This has been the longest campaign in the history of the world.

How long after January 22, 2009 before it starts again? Hey People! Let us take a freaking breath!
