10:09 pm: Sliding Time 1
After I got offline last night, I watched TV and beaded until midnight when I slept for three hours in the recliner. Spirit was there at the beginning, but not at the end. Then I read Wednesday's paper and watched two hours of shows I recorded Tuesday and beaded. This brings us to 6:30am and I decided to read in bed for a bit and then take the trash and recycling out and have lunch.

I ended up getting sleepy about 8am so I got up and dressed and took the trash and recycling out. I went on for breakfast at Bob Evans. I haven't been there in quite a while so I had the sausage gravy biscuits and could only eat about half of it. The server wanted to send the rest home with me, but I said no.

I got home about 9:30am and sat in the recliner for a bit with Spirit while I decided that giving them wet food (normally right after I get up) would be better then than when I actually get up. I gave them snackies, too, but as I headed down to the bedroom to read before sleeping, Spirit was on top of the rectangular end table, yelling at me. Usually when I give them that meal, I sit in the recliner for at least a half-hour with her on my lap and apparently she expected that.

I read until noon and went right to sleep. The cats got their dry food meal when I got up at 8pm. So I'm up three hours. I hope to stay awake until 3pm Friday.

The Republicans wanted people to have more say in what their agenda is, so they put up a website where the proposals are truly weird. For example:

"A 'teacher' told my child in class that dolphins were mammals and not fish!" a third complains. "And the same thing about whales! We need TRADITIONAL VALUES in all areas of education. If it swims in the water, it is a FISH. Period! End of Story."

I think that's a troll, myself.

I didn't get these first two replies -- I wonder if LJ had problems.

No, if you look at more on the forums, they're all a little nuts.

Obviously this person likes to keep things simple.

Like ritaxis, I suspect a troll or an attempt at sarcasm. :)

That is a possibility. Especially during the Bush Regime years, it's often difficult in this 21st Century to tell the difference between the spoof and someone who means it.

No, if you go and read the forums, or even Milbank's picks at quotes, which that one was, you can see that a lot of people are not very bright.

Wouldn't surprise me a bit if that fish/mammal thing was true, I've come across equally "intelligent" remarks before - and that was before the internet.
