(Memo to BFM: Damn right he doesn’t, and for the exact reason that you guessed.)

Oh my God…four days with the bitch mother, which was hell enough, pills or not, and then back to this pissant little town and this shitty job. And just when I was feeling centered being back in Chicago. There are some things you just can’t buy, and a little mental tranquility is one of them. Of course, I attempt to simulate it every day at the tune of $75 a month for prescriptions, but it just isn’t the same, you know. Fortunately, I was able to survive the three-hour wait at Kansas City on the way to Chicago (thank God that the smoking areas aren’t cut off past the security area), the forty-minute wait on Sunday morning to get through security at Midway (and for once I wasn’t stopped for further security checks, which I always am at Midway for some reason), and the fact that the flight back to KC was completely full with an excessive amount of crying children, which drives me crazy. Thank God for the AbFab Christmas Special being uploaded. Edina and Patsy always give me a smile. But it isn’t enough to counteract this cold that I have.

The Daily Pulse, 12.29.04

In Memoriam: Susan Sontag. She could be a bitch sometimes, but she worked hard as hell for basic human rights.

Nacho wins it for Rangers – Google News

I didn’t think that Mexican food was that popular in Glasgow. And how do tortilla chips and jalapenos contribute to a victory? Intense farts by Rangers distracting the Motherwell side or something? Well, the Scottish can be that crude…

…and here we go with another Wednesday in Paradise, the last Wednesday column of 2004, in fact. Yeah, big whoop, I know, but considering my track record with Wednesday columns when I’m on evening shift (and still with a cold), it’s special. What isn’t special is that the rumors going around right now are that we’ll be working on Friday. As much as I love double-time, I detest being in a f*cking plant on New Years’ Eve. So let’s just get on with it…
