Inauguration In Thoughts and Images

Buh Bye!

Buh Bye!

Well, this picture just screamed for a caption to really say it all! I watched/listened to the inaugural with others at lunch in our offices. The internet was SLAMMED, well at least our network was at work with all the folks trying to tune in to the thing.

Obama’s speech was good. Short, pointed, and forceful. I really enjoyed the pained look (percieved) on W’s face as he made mention of such things as “science” coming back to the US, no more torture, and general re-building of the country in the eyes of its own populace and the worl.d.

Later on, when I found the picture above, I also located this gem:

Sith lord in repose...

Sith lord in repose...

Cheney was all slumped and looked, as a friend put it; “as though his soul was trying to re-enter his body after an eight year absence” haha. Well, I personally think he looks more like the Penguin here. Then again, I always saw him with a top hat and cig in a long stem holder. He never wore that monicle I sent him.. Damn.

All in all a good day for the people and the world. Now we just have to remember that Obama cannot do this alone. WE, the PEOPLE have to also pitch in here.

Lets go folks.

Innoguration Central

Innoguration Central

Well, as of noon today we will have a new President. After these last 8 years of deciet, bullying, illegality, and ourtight hubris, I hope that Obama can cleanse the infection out. First though, we must get through the innoguration without incident. I hope that this comes to pass and the country can move on.

Here’s hoping that nothing other than celebration happens.

Tense-ness at the homestead

Falling Down

Falling Down

So I come home today to find Semiotic in the laundry room here, shaken and somewhat scared and the source of her tension is a guy standing in the room too. This guy looks to be a bit older than me, close cropped grey hair, glasses, shorts and a t-shirt. On the outside he seemed harmless. However, he was rather intense, standing in the corner looking rather pissed off.

Semiotic whispered something about how he had been acting and I got the point, so I told her to go back to the apartment and I would sit with the laundry in the dryer. As soon as she had left this guy go’s over to the dryer opens it, hrupmphs, and then SLAM closes the dryer door. He then proceeds to stand in his corner and look crabby. So, I whip out my magazine and begin to read.

It’s then that this guy begins to show some pretty passive aggressive tendencies. He gets on his cell phone and starts to have a conversation (loudly so as I could hear) with someone about how he has a SIG220 and it’s a 1400 dollar gun and mumbles something about shooting after a string of epithets. The person on the other end then says something to the effect of

“What are you planning to shoot me?”

To which this guy launches into:

“No you fucker, we are going to shoot targets, what the fuck are you thinking?”

It’s at this time that I just look at him with a look of disdain that says;

“Yeah, big man, you have some self assurance issues as well as anger issues huh?”

He slams the door on the dryer after getting his 3 items out, and leaves. It was after that that Semiotic came back over and explained that this guy just went ape over his wash not getting dry and he was acting strange. She was nervous even though she had the Beretta in her pocket. I guess though, that she could not read this guy. What I got from him was that he is a guy living in an apartment complex and unhappy with his life. He feels that he has little control and perhaps had a bad day to boot.

All in all, he was full of shit and a prick, but, I don’t think a real threat. However, had he persisted more, I think I would have told him in no uncertain terms to cut it out, or he would find that SIG up his ass with me pulling the trigger til it went “click”.. Of course, my saying something like that could put me into his world huh? It’s more likely I would have told him to cut it out and had he would have left post haste.

One hopes…

So we started looking at loans for houses….
