If you stay quiet
And listen very closely,
You'll hear my day pass.
Egads! What a day this has been! The morning was occupied by a trip to WCCO radio for a short interview (during which I said, "Yeah," "uh huh," and "Definitely." That's all I said. No more, no less.) After the interview, errands were run and the baby was forced (forced!) into a nap. All that takes time. And now, I have no time left for the finer things, such as blogging. Apologies.
I do have a quick bit of advice, however. If you're planning on making a road trip this weekend (or anytime son, for that matter) and decide to eat at a truckstop, DO NOT order the turkey melt. I know they call it turkey, but friends: that ain't turkey.
Anywho, before I depart, here's Today's Joke:
Blagojevich says his impeachment by Ill. House wasn't unexpected, part of ongoing dispute
The Illinois House voted overwhelmingly Friday to impeach Gov. Rod Blagojevich, setting up an unprecedented trial in the state Senate on whether he should be thrown out for abuse of power.
The governor responded with what has become trademark defiance since he arrested on federal charges a month ago. He accused the House of retaliating against him for trying to help the people of Illinois and said he's confident he'll be "properly exonerated" at a Senate trial.
"The causes of the impeachment are because I've done things to fight for families," said Blagojevich.
"Specifically, I've been fighting for my family. I've gone above and beyond my duties as governor to make sure that my family got what they deserved. If I'm to lose my job for helping the people of Illinois, even of it's only four or five of them, then so be it. I'll just take my beautiful hair and go home."
