Road Apples, #46

"Rushing" to Judgement - It's my personal opinion that anyone outside of mass-murders, people stupid enough to tuck a pistol into a pair of sweatpants and/or purveyors of dog-fighting rings should be able to buy into a sports team franchise. We are not talking about organizations that exist to promote the general welfare or do anything of any real importance anyway. What I'm referring to is, of course, race-baiter Rush Limbaugh's failure to participate in a group that was interested in buying an NFL franchise. Limbaugh had as much of a right to buy into an NFL team as anyone else would, but that's not the REAL issue here now, is it? No, the real issue is this: Limbaugh has made a career out of bashing people he does not like, but yet he himself has a habit of crying like a little girl (no disrespect intended to little girls) whenever something like this happens. This is a guy who has been race-baiting for years, and how cries "race" because his fellow investors decided that he was more of a liability than his money was an asset in this endeavor. Maybe he should have laid off the "Barrack the Magic Negro" parody.

Note to File: If you send your career bashing people, you shouldn't be so surprised that the have a tendency to fight back every once in a while.

Working for a Living - As I noted before, the 'heavy-lifting' portion of my latest assignment at work is over, and I'm pretty glad. We are rolling out a new Client Relationship Management application, and I've been the lead on the training component of the project. Part of that translated to the fact that we had about 100 classes to conduct in about three months, and I was responsible for a little over a third of the classes. The other three trainers on the project conducted the remaining 2/3rds of of the sessions. While I do have some more travel coming up, none if it will be as extensive as I've been going through since August. On the plus side, I have a ton of Hilton Honors points. On the negative side, I now have to get back into a routine that doesn't involve the same pace. Oh well, the pay is still deposited into my checking account every other Friday, so I'll definitely be able to adjust.

At the Moment - I'm listening to a few old Paul McCartney tunes. "Listen to What the Man Said" just finished and I'm now playing "Uncle Albert/Admiral Halsey". Man, this guy has talent to burn. In today's musical world where pop-tards reign, talent like Macca's just stand out like a black guy playing hockey (sorry, I must still have Limbaugh on the brain). It makes you wonder whatever happened to artists that write and perform their own material. Damn, I really do need to dig out "Band on the Run" and rip the songs onto my music flash drive.

Things to Do - Now that my exile in Hartford and Woodbridge has more or less come to an end, I have to set my sights on a few important things to accomplish of a more personal nature. This includes getting my eyes checked (I haven't been to the eye doctor in two years) and seeing my doctor about a problem that I think exists and which I think might need to be corrected early next year. Mind you I don't want to do the latter, but I'm thinking that some things are better left not ignored forever, and while the last work-assignment provided more than ample cover, it's over and I can't keep ducking forever.

Zombieland - I went to see this movie last night (by myself) and I have to say that I was entertained. Mind you if you are looking for a movie that has elements such as plot, character development, and cinematography, this isn't for you. If you like to see zombies getting killed in all manner of creative ways...or...if you just want to mentally check you mind out for about 90 minutes, then I highly recommend 'Zombieland'. Note that it's not for the kids.
