It's Been a Long Time, Rush Limbaugh

I've been kinda busy.

Actually, I haven't been doing much other than lounging around Karen's parent's house. But I have a plethora of loose ends to tie up, so let's get down to business:

Movie Recommendation from Penelope the Cat

Rent The Good German.

Speaking of Rush Limbaugh

Did you know that Rush Limbaugh has a subscription service? For fifty bucks a year you can listen to prerecorded radio at your convienience. You can also look at the variety of documents he references during his show and get access to his top secret "personal" email.

I totally want this.

Karen said no dice and suggested I find gainful employment.

I've Been Awarded

OK, months ago Reb, one of my many Canadian friends, gave me an "Excellent Blogger Award". Although I thanked her on her website a while back I haven't acknowledged this publically until now:

Dear Reb:

Thank you so much for the "Excellent Blogger Award". I'm sure this most high honor is probably of the same level of prestige as a Nobel Prize. Since Nobel winners get a million dollars, I'm assuming I will be receiving a similar amount. However, my check has not arrived. Do you have my mailing address? Karen told me she'd be willing to cash it for me, as I am a cat and do not have time for such frivolus details as modern banking. Just let me know what I need to do.

So what else can I tell you . . .

Karen and George
Karen is tense. She's stressed about the house stuff (long story). Anyhoo, Karen was driving to visit Sadie and me and the typical half hour drive took over an hour. You wanna take a gander at why? It seems that George the Sequel was in Houston for Dr. DeBakey's funeral. So traffic was nutty between the airforce base and downtown.
I think it would be a kick if George flew coach.

More Freaky Politics

Did you people hear about this?

Basically, all of the local congressmen (including former presidential candidate Ron Paul) were on a plane leaving Houston and heading to D.C., only to make a sudden emergency landing in New Orleans.

They were going to vote on an aviation safety bill.
The Big Announcement

Soon we here at I Don't Pretend to be an Ordinary Cat are planning to implement a new feature:

What the Crap Wednesdays
Basically, all the things we find annoying, bizarre, whatever will be featured every Wednesday. I've sent Karen out and about in Redneck Hell taking pictures. She's stockpiling some really awesome stuff.

However, she won't give me anything until after the house sells and we are moved.

But stay tuned, my friends, stay tuned.

Sunday Morning News Shows

OK, you know what the discussion was on ALL of the uberimportant Sunday morning news shows?

McCain's commercial.

Have you seen it?
Well, regardless let me give you my new favorite mantra:
"The three most boring topics of conversation are: Paris Hilton, Britney Spears, and the pigmentation of Barack Obama." -- George Will
And that's all I'm sayin' about that.
So Penelope, we've been watching CNN with baited breath, hoping you were safe during this "tropical storm". Are you nice and dry???
The answer to this question is, yes, I am quite nice and dry, still hanging out at Karen's parent's house. Tropical storm Eduardo was basically a bust, at least for us. Karen, who is still at our old house, which is way closer to the coast, is stuck at home, enjoying what has amounted to roughly a half inch of rain.
I plan to write more about all of this in a couple of days, as the whole experience is pretty ridiculous.
So stay tune, readers, stay tuned. . .

I'm looking forward to the first what the crap Wednesday.

I'm ALSO looking forward to WTC Wednesdays!

Reb said...

WTC Wednesday sounds like it will be fun.

Glad you are safe and dry and that Karen only got a bit of rain.

I can't understand why the committee hasn't gotten you your money yet! Oh, I know - there isn't any! Sorry to break it to you Penelope, but, it is like being nominated for an Oscar then not winning - such an honour! ;)

I need WTC...every day.

Welcome back to blogging, Penelope. You have been gone too long. I suspect you are mostly lazing around the parents house while poor Karen tries to sell her house.

Tell Karen I'm sending LOTS of positive sell vibes her way. My own house hasn't seen any action because it's been 105 degrees in Denver, and people don't like to go out and look for houses in that weather or something. Weak. All of them.

Mom In Scrubs said...

Yay! WTC Wednesday~count me in!

Lulu's current favorite saying is "Holy Cwapamoley!" So cute.

I haven't followed your blog long enough, I think... DeBakey forceps are what we used in surgery. Same Dr. DeBakey, I presume?
