Rats, Rats, Rats

Doesn't it just figure? I got addicted to "24".....I watched Seasons 1 through 4 on A&E (bless 'em, they ran them in sequence on Monday mornings from 8:00 a.m. through 12:00 noon until they'd run all the way through Season 4). Then Season 5 has turned into a disappointment.

They assassinated former President Palmer, leaving President Doofus to flounder about helplessly. Our only hope is that his First Lady, the always-wonderous Jean Smart, will smother him with a pillow and take over the reins of government, saving us from mounting frustration with her husband's never-failing idiocy.

Oh, yeah, think about it. President Jean.....and she appoints Jack Bauer as Attorney General. Cool.

Oh, well......away from the Land of Bauer and back to real life. I've bought an MVOX speakerphone and downloaded Gizmo. Now I'm just waiting to hear from Kris to see if she's got her set up ready. Finally, a chance to talk to her for less than $60 a call. (So THERE, AT&T!)

Tomorrow there's going to be a baby shower for Randy's newest granddaughter-to-be. I will be conspicuous in my absence. I bought gifts. I will wrap them. I will give them to Randy for delivery directly to his son. I will not, however, waste my free time on a Saturday to attend a baby shower and play stupid games and watch other people eat cake I can't have. I don't do showers. Haven't for many years now. I think instead of a shower invitation, people should just send out notices saying "I'm having a baby. Buy me something." That would be much more honest and much less grief.
