    Why do they bother standing in front of an empty gallery reading speeches? None of them dare use the clips since Tip O'Neal insisted that the gallery be shown, lest they be made to look like fools by their opponents. They could simply enter the speech into the Congressional Record on paper. Who watches this crap? These are the things that bug me. And no, this doesn't belong in the politics forum.

    Oops. I forgot. You're probably allergic to them.

    Glad to hear it, friend. I'm allergic to penicillin. Hope that got wiped out, too.

    i don't like watching football -- too boring

    and that brings me to another thing -- enough with the baseball on PBS already -- put those crappy documentaries about it on ESPN Classic -- I think the pencil-neck baseball loving PBS viewer like George Will is exceptionally rare -- why stink up my PBS prime time with this junk -- they're showing one on Pedro somebody or other from Boston that was a pitcher -- WGAS, WGAF?

    no, I was just wandering past it -- my back hurts, so I'm upstairs in bed, and there is only local channels on that TV -- it annoys me -- even those horrible book review C-Span shows would be better

    even worse than playing on a football field? -- they strung the net across the upright poles -- God, strike me down now -- and it is GIRLS soccer, which is almost as awful to watch as high school girls basketball

    you know what? if you don't want a full-body scan at the airport, do everyone a favor and ride Greyhound . . . after that experience you'll be begging to strip down in exchange for getting on an airplane

    I'm in a good mood -- it must be the Vicodin talking -- I love the cold darkness of winter -- I can feel it in my bones

    :dontcare:

    you know what else bugs me? that you didn't use a picture of an ambulance with proper perspective -- it looks like its sliding on ice, but i can plainly tell from the pic that it is warm and dry

    now they're talking about freakin' Barry Bonds -- they should just extend Antiques Roadshow an extra hour -- stupid baseball

    I am wise beyond my years.

    I'm going to have to watch I'm Alan Partridge, Series One, for the fourth time in a week -- which brings me to another thing that bothers me -- why can't I get UK television here? It would be a simple matter to pay a monthly fee for it on Dish Network -- I can't even get it off of the BBC website without a proxy -- there have to be thousands of people like me here who would pay for British TV -- BBC America isn't enough
