The Sami That I Know And Love

Background: My husband had major surgery yesterday afternoon.

How I know everything is going to be ok: At 10:00 am today, he was well enough to traverse the hospital hallway explaining to anyone who would listen why the diet they had him on was wrong.

Confirmation of evidence: He sent his first visitor today out to get him a decent cup of coffee.

UPDATE: all of you good people praying for Sami should be saving some for his nurses.

UPDATE 2: Actually he’s doing very well. Tilapia and carrot soup today. He’s just slightly less charming than he was yesterday.


1. I have erected my Cloak of Invisibility on the deck.

Give it your best, lookyloos. I’m invisible now.

Maybe later I’ll drive over to the other street to evaluate the degree of invisibility the mosquito netting is actually providing. I might have to go with my original plan of hanging shower curtains  from the gazebo. One way or the other, I will not have the stares of the lookyloos invading my private space. Whatever it takes, lookyloos.

2. We had our front stoop redone and when the guys were finished, they erected a tarp to protect the fresh cement from rain.

Now there’s  a charming blue light that shows through the front windows. It appeals to me so much that it made me aware of how little the color blue is in my life. Maybe I’ll hang the tarp from the gazebo when the stoop work is done. Take that, lookyloos.

Matt Wiener, You Are On Notice

My favorite TV show of all time is Mad Men. Me and a billion other cable viewers. One thing I cannot tolerate is Leftwing ideology woven into a storyline.  Matt Wiener already has two stikes against him this season.

  1. The gratuitous knock against Mitt Romney’s father voiced by a former Rockefeller staffer signaling lack of confidence and ridiculing the senior Romney’s character*.
  2. The OBVIOUS remark “Forward” from Don Draper when Sterling Cooper Draper Price is at a financialcrossroads and the fate of the company hangs on a new account. Don gives a pep talk to the downhearted employees and ends with that single word of encouragement.

Jesus God.

I am telling you that I am not going to tolerate another thinly veiled reference to America 2012 that favors Obama or knocks Republicans.

*The big thing the left hates is a decent relationship and/or respect for one’s father. Bush/Bush=bad. Clinton/Jefferson = good. Obama/Obama = jackpot.
