Have you ever fallen in love with someone you don’t know?

Does this happen to people or is it just something that you see in the movies. They say that all movies and sitcoms are based upon real life. Does that mean that aliens are coming to take over. Will they say “nanoo-nanoo” and fly in eggs.

Whatever does it mean?

The President is just a man

  • Kissinger tape: Nixon too drunk to speak with British PM
  • Kind of a scary article. Just another reminder that the people we call our leaders are human and prone to mistakes just like you and I. The problem is that their mistakes are not unlike those of pilots, bus drivers and doctors.

    They screw up and lots of others ending up paying a serious price.

    At some point we are going to have to redefine our expectations of the POTUS and begin something new.

    A good work ethic

    We hear/read discussions regarding the necessity and the desire to find someone with a “good work ethic.” It is a highly desirable trait and one that has multiple definitions because it really is subjective.

    Some people are good at sitting down at a task and just working at it until it is completed. They will not take a break or stop until they are done with what they set out to do.

    Others just can’t work that way and do what they need to do in bursts of energy, which is the way that I prefer to work. And then are those people that are just downright lazy.

    But a good work ethic does not mean that the quality of work is always as solid as the desire and effort to work hard. Sometimes you are placed in situations in which you are just wearing the wrong hat, you don’t have the right tools for the job. It requires a flat head and you brought a phillips screwdriver.

    That being said I am placed in a position all the time where my clients ask me to do their work for them. None of them have the balls to come out and just ask me to do it, but nonetheless they do. It makes me crazy. I have enough work to do without those lazy bastards adding to my workpile. If I wanted more work I’d tell Dubya to step aside and begin my own reign of terror. Bwahhahah.

    Madonna

    I am growing more and more tired of celebrities who have let fame color their perceptions of their importance in the world. Madonna is one of those people. Just because you have talent and business acumen you cannot assume to have the same skills in other areas.

    That is not to say that you cannot have an opinion, but I find her political views to be somewhat shallow and I find her involvement in Kabbalah to be irritating. It is a little offensive to see a person pick one aspect of your faith and exploit it for their own gain and that is how it comes across to me. I may be wrong, but I have little reason to think so.

    I suppose that it is fair to say that neither Madonna or I will lose any sleep over the other’s perception of each other.

    She is 45, how long can she keep this charade up and when does she change and adapt to circumstances. Maybe she will and maybe she already has. It doesn’t matter. If she feels so strongly about peace she can put her money where her mouth is.

    Midnight- And I cannot sleep

    It is a little after midnight on the day 22nd anniversary of my Bar-Mitzvah. At 35 I have a house, have been married for 8.5 years, have a 3.5 year-old son and another child on the way.

    No word yet as to the sex, other than it is a healthy baby. And so begins the start of my blog adventure. I cannot say where this journey will take me, or whether I’ll enjoy it, but for tonight I am willing to venture out into the wild and wooly web.
