The Sassy Sundries: My Week in Review

Here’s yet another mathematical accounting of things personal, political, and sundry in my life. I’ve stolen the idea from Boston’s Weekly Dig’s Bean Counter column. They don’t seem to have much by way of mathematical skills, either. Thanks to Before Girl for pointing out the error of my simple arithmetic last week. At least she doesn't pick on my pre-coffee comments.

I have a date with McIntriguing tomorrow evening. Plus Ten

According to Salon.com’s War Room, a recent Pew Research Center, the words most commonly volunteered to describe W are “incompetent” and “arrogant.” “Ass” comes in at number 13. Here’s to the Ass-in-Chief, our leader. Minus Three

I got to see Dear Prudence for the first time in ages. It was a good, if not nearly long enough, visit. Plus Five

Unlike the US Senate, the
House has a spine. This week’s debate on the non-binding Iraq War resolution gives me some hope that Congress might start standing up to the Administration. Plus Two

Meanwhile, the war rages on, and the Democrats are scared about being called weak on defense. Minus Five

V-Day passed without incident. Even

Winter weather finally decided to show up. Even though it was mostly freezing rain, I still got that snowed-in feeling. Plus Two

I had a nasty case of the flu. Minus Three

“Raspberry Beret” just came on my iPod. One. Two. One, two, three, uh! Plus One

Plus Total: 20
Minus Total: 11
Total for the Week: Plus 9
Last Week’s Total: Bad Math

At first I was saddened that I only rated a five compared to Mr.Ipants but then again... he has things to offer I could not possibly! LOL So I will take it. I believe it was in regards to the "not nearly long enough".

Dive, the seats are 20ft. from the stage! What do you think of his geetar playing?. I could watch his fingers work all night. Well, I suppose that would mean we would have to leave the lights on huh. Ok, well I could watch him in the morning! Hee Hee!

Oh, Dive. One of Prudence's best qualities is that she doesn't behave.
