Domo arigato


Like a Japanese salaryman who works for nothing but the glory of the company and is pleased by the simplest of perks, I was amazed this morning how much more convenient my new parking space is.

Until yesterday I was forced to park far, far, far away from the entrance to my building. (OK, maybe just far away.) Every day now, for almost three years I've slogged underground through the dank and dim G-3 level of my office complex's parking garage. Spring, summer, fall and winter, all my days began with the same spelunking-like trek.

But not today my friends. Today I parked a glorious four spaces away from the underground elevator lobby and was out of my car and into my holding cell...ah, I mean cube, in three minutes flat.

Serenity thy name is new parking space.

This makes me wonder, just a little, if the two knuckleheads running for president who are currently flaming each other in the media about who's the more "regular" guy have any concept about what it means to work for a living?

Both started out pretty regular, and have since made good on their own American Dreams, but do people with seven homes or million-dollar homes really think they're going to convince the rest of us that they're anything like us?

The next thing you know they'll be asking Hillary for tips on how to do shots at the corner bar.

Disillusion thy name is presidential candidate.

The real delusion is perpetrated by the American people who consistently utilize the "who would you rather have a beer with" standard in making voting decisions which necessitates this most ridiculous political pander to be "regular."

Zip, just one more in the list of reasons I will greatly expand on about why we really need a "None of the Above" choice.

Ref - never, ever, understimate the decision-making ability of the American electorate.

I'm working on something now I hope to post in the near future as a conservation topic. But more on that later...

A parking space? That's all it takes to make you happy?

You must have been an easy kid to entertain. In the Matrix.

Oh, don't get me started on how people vote for "who they'd rather have a beer with." We picked Bush. A teetotaler. That's how smart we are.
