It's a delightful Saturday morning in these parts, and I'm hopefully going to sit in the sun hard for a good chunk of it. Javi is headed out to Canobie Lake Park
for the day...a friend's birthday party is going on up there.
It's been a whale of a week, hasn't it?
There's so much going on, but doesn't it feel like we've been here before?
I could write about the Boy Scouts today, but I've been doing that here for five years already. You all know my position, so I don't think another blog on the subject is going to help.
I could write about Mitt Romney.....but again, we've been doing that for the last four years. Even my unique position of having lived through the Romney regime in Massachusetts really doesn't give me any more special insights, so I think I'll leave that alone.
Massachusetts just came off a lengthy heat wave, and my hometown was under an honest-to-goodness tornado warning the other day. A friend back in town actually dropped everything and took shelter in his cellar when the warning came through. But Bob has already written a blog about that, so I'll skip it.
Although I'm sure we don't, sometimes it feels that the United States leads the world in massacres and shootouts. I've done crazy things like stand in line for hours for tickets, go to the first midnight showing, and I'm rather proud of my geek cred that I have seen all six Star Wars movies on opening day...including two first showings. (Episode IV and I) Nevertheless, Pam has already written a blog about that, even if it was last year. Rehashing that won't edify anyone any more.
So....that's what I'm not writing about today.
But that leaves me with nothing to actually write about....so instead, how about we all just take a deep breath, go outside and enjoy the weather, and maybe later, let's have some ice cream? It's been a hell of a week, I think we could all use a break.
