Shoot Me Now

I was going to start this post with the opening sentence beginning with:

Have you ever had one of those days where you're certain that someone or something is out to get you?

but after typing it out and looking at it, I realized that unless you haven't had one of those days then you're obviously living in a bubble.

Well.....today wasn't exactly one of those days that qualifies the usage of quotation marks, but it wasn't one of my nicer days either.

It started this morning when I was trying to get my daughter out of bed and ready for school. Typically, the only two known things that suceed in this endevour where I normally fail is my wife or the suitable application of high explosives.

Once my daughter was out of bed and starting her morning routine, every time that I'd speak to her she'd.....not quite bark at me, but her tone of voice was starting to make me feel like an idiot. Normally my daughter isn't cruel, mean, or harsh, but I just seemed to be getting the wrong tone from her. Well, I decided to minimize my talking to her just to avoid making a weird situation worse.

The rest of the day sort of went like that: not mean, cruel, harsh, but it seemed like everything that could irritate me actually did. And most of this 'action' was while I was at school.

Here's a typical example:

If you're walking along a sidewalk and come to an intersection (where you have to get to some destination across the street), what would you or any other typical person do:

  1. Stop, look both ways, and then cross the street, or
  2. keep walking without breaking your stride straight out into the street since you're obviously the most-important-person-on-planet-Earth and cannot be bothered to concern yourself for your own safety?
Well, it would seem that most of the students that I encountered at UCSD today were opting for the second choice.

Seriously - practically every person that was walking near me as I was driving around the campus was just flat-out walking out into the street and not looking around. Or even worse: they were looking for oncoming traffic, see me coming along and still proceed to walk out into the street. This happened so many times that I lost count.

And honestly.....there were a few times that I almost didn't stop since I'd be doing the world a favor my taking them out of the gene pool.

But I didn't; if they were in a crosswalk that was marked on the street, then I'd be charged with murder or manslaughter since they were 'legal'. Besides, I'd also have to get out and clean the splatter off the hood of my truck.

Today was a slightly varied version of those days where I know for a fact that all of the stupid people in San Diego are coordinating with each other to purposefully impede me as I attempt to go about my business.

Ugh....just shoot me now.

Please Don't Make Me Pay

This is probably complete crap, but if it's legitimate.....she's got some balls:

Paris pleads to avoid jail

PARIS Hilton has urged fans to sign a petition to keep her out of jail because she "provides beauty and excitement to (most of) our otherwise mundane lives".

The 26-year-old was ordered by a Los Angeles judge on Friday to report to a county jail by June 5 to serve a 45-day sentence for violating the terms of her probation in an alcohol-related reckless driving case.

Hilton's plea, on her MySpace website, came as her lawyers filed a notice with the court indicating their intent to appeal.

The hotel heiress urged fans to join her in a desperate plea to California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger to keep her out of jail.

She wrote on her blog: "My friend Joshua started this petition, please help and sihn (sic) it. i LOVE YOU ALL!!!!!"

The petition reads: "Paris Whitney Hilton is an American celebrity and socialite. She is an heiress to a share of the Hilton Hotel fortune, as well as to the real estate fortune of her father Richard Hilton. She provides hope for young people all over the US and the world. She provides beauty and excitement to (most of) our otherwise mundane lives."

"We, the American public who support Paris, are shocked, dismayed and appalled by how Paris has been the person to be used as an example that Drunk Driving is wrong...

"This petition is to ask Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger to pardon Paris Hilton for her mistake. Please allow her to her return to her career and life."

Besides the spectacular grammar, I.....well, I don't really know what to make of this. If by chance it's real, then Ms. Hilton has got some balls.

Normally, I don't really get into celeb-crap, but here's a spot of advice for the heiress: do the time and stop getting hammered. You've got enought money to hire someone full time to drive you around.

And for those of you that are really, really, ridiculously interested, the petition can be found here.

Kicking Over the Anthill

This is in the news, but Michelle Malkin has a TON of coverage on the FBI's latest kicking over of an anthill of domestic terror plots.

And bear in mind - this one is only ONE that's been announced.....imagine what else is 'in the works'.....

I'll be curious to see what (if any) action(s) are taken by the DoD in increasing security at the entrances to the military bases here in San Diego.

More later.

Kids are B-A-D

Just when you think all possible outlandish statements have been flung into the public arena, along comes another set of loons:

Children 'bad for planet'

HAVING large families should be frowned upon as an environmental misdemeanour in the same way as frequent long-haul flights, driving a big car and failing to reuse plastic bags, says a report to be published today by a green think tank.

The paper by the Optimum Population Trust will say that if couples had two children instead of three they could cut their family's carbon dioxide output by the equivalent of 620 return flights a year between London and New York.

John Guillebaud, co-chairman of OPT and emeritus professor of family planning at University College London, said: "The effect on the planet of having one child less is an order of magnitude greater than all these other things we might do, such as switching off lights.

"The greatest thing anyone in Britain could do to help the future of the planet would be to have one less child."

In his latest comments, the academic says that when couples are planning a family they should be encouraged to think about the environmental consequences.

And if this had been a televised announcement, I wonder if they could have kept a straight face....butt monkey ready to launch.
