More Food for Thought

Food for thought on this beautiful Sunday morning:

One teenage boy can consume copious amounts of food. Soon, I'll have three teenage boys. The question really is, where do we put another refrigerator?

Madoff goes to jail, finally. Will he actually spend serious time in jail, or get the fluff treatment most white collar criminals get? And, do you get to wear Armani in jail?

Why is March such a tease?

How is it that executives who have brought a company to the brink of total collapse, as in AIG's case, get 100 million in bonuses? And more importantly, how do I get a job there?

How do you get an eleven year old to use soap?

How do you convince an eight year old an entire roll of toilet paper is not necessary after one bowel movement?

When will someone go to jail for approving torture? Read today's "Tales from Torture's Dark World" in the NYTimes. How did we let this go on? Will we ever own up to the horrors of the Bush administration? Will anyone ever go on trial?

The sun is out, the dog is eyeing me for a walk. I'm going to go think about these things, hold the silly and the serious, trying to stay balanced in my understanding of the world.

Re the 11yo and soap, take him out back and hose him down. Or see if he likes body wash.

Wrt the TP, switch to Scott. An enormous quantity won't plug up the toilet as bad as the thicker stuff.

Wrt the economy: just keep stocked up on canned food, bottled water, and ammunition.

Wrt where to put the kids' food: You'll have to take the deer carcass out of the freezer and put it in the garden shed to make room.

Wrt balance, you have the perfect friend at hand: the stuff dogs worry about is so simple that it puts us to shame.

Any more problems/ Just ask.

Me, I'm bewaring the Ides of March and going back to sleep.

Well, we're having a very dreary, rainy day in Maryland, and I am having a hard time answering life's most basic questions. Such as, should I get off the computer and clean the bathroom, or should I surf on over to

you know?

deer carcass... I knew I had to move that. damn.

dog loved her walk today. I would say she had a shit eating grin on her face but she doesn't eat shit. unlike a couple of the other dogs we saw along the way. yuck.

sue, is how I start every day. life is too short not to laugh at cats diving to take a bullet or demanding better food.

hope you got the worlds problems all sorted out. we had our first truly warm day in maine (alright, high 40's really does seem warm!) and i had such a case of spring fever! i even propped the door open at your house while i was painting to let some fresh air in! now, if only the snow would all be melted, most likely another week or more before that will happen.
