’08 election in a nutshell.

Monday, December 22nd, 2008 @ 2:28 am | Uncategorized

Democrats gave the public serious candidates, Republicans gave them future talk-radio hosts.


p.s. I’ve been laid low by a particularly violent case of stomach flu this weekend…hoping to be pieced together well enough to fly out to Iowa for Christmas in the morning. If you recall, the folks don’t find much use for the Internet, so I’ll be appearing sporadically at best. Mike G. and I will be hanging out in Iowa City next weekend for a night of raucous celebration before I become a married man.

Happy Holidays to everybody, especially Lil’ Miss Samari, the best wifey-to-be the world contains, who is currently packing my bags while I am half-falling out of my chair, mouth ajar.

    If she can put up with you, Lilโ€™ Miss Samari must be an incredibly patient and understanding young lady — or perhaps a masochist; we can’t be sure.

    Why, Dana, I am an immense pleasure to spend time with. My words are honey and my touch fills one with warmth. Children run to me with arms open and laughing visages, men smile with good will and mirth, and women flutter their eyelids and brim with flattery.

    Getting to know me is the greatest thing you can do with your life.

    Thus, I marry the world’s most brilliant woman:)

    Jeromy: Apparently you’ve kept this blog of yours a secret from her! If she read that comment, I know she’d be howling with laughter. ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. Dana Says:

    And are you going to have the nerve to publish the wedding pictures? ๐Ÿ™‚

    *Howling with laughter*

    I will definitely link you to the wedding photos. With Mike G. and Jeromy on the dance floor it’s guaranteed to be a great time.

    Jeromy and Mike on the dance floor — together? Maybe you should be glad that same sex marriage isn’t allowed in Iowa! ๐Ÿ™‚

    But the real question is: With Mike’s broken hand, who will lead???? ๐Ÿ™‚

    As of this morning my hand is out of the cast. It looks like a catchers mitt and it doesn’t work properly yet but I’m glad to have it back regardless.

  10. Yorkshire Says:

    Good news Mike. Any results on the eye surgery?

  11. Yorkshire Says:

    Mike, are you going to get therapy for the hand. My wife had both of her wrist bones replaced six months apart and also tendon surgery. It took about two months of therapy to get them back in shape. She did them one at a time.

  12. mike g Says:

    Some PT for sure on the hand. As for the eye I’m still seeing “floaters” as they call them and flashes of light in the lower righthand corner. No idea when that is supposed to go away if at all. I just want to get this bullshit behind me.

  13. Dana Says:

    Mike, I had cataract surgery in 2003, and I still have a “floater” in that eye. It’s perfectly round and appears black, looks like a ยบ degree sign. Every once in a while I’ll think I see a fly buzzing around, but it’s the floater.

  14. mike g Says:

    See…I knew I was fucked when they told me they would go away in a few months.
