Couple Things

As I am slammed by work today, this is going to be short.

First, as I went into the Post Office yesterday afternoon I noticed it is now open until 7 p.m. That's pretty kick ass.

Just as I was leaving I heard an ad on the radio for Mark Warner's Senate campaign and was reminded, like getting slapped with a cold, wet fish to the face, there actually is a Senate race going on here in Virginia. Then I had to struggle to come up with Jim Gilmore's name who's running on the GOP ticket. Yeah, 13 days out voters should not be scratching their heads and straining to come up with your name if you're running for a statewide office.

Do we really care if McCain's campaign spent $150k+ on Sarah Palin's work clothes? Seriously, total double standard considering how much men's suits cost. Despite this, even though they could just change the tie and no one would notice they're wearing the same suit, I'm guessing John, Barrack and Joe each have a closet full of blue and gray suits. Although...I don't know too many "regular" moms who can afford to drop that kind of coin at Nieman's and Saks. Well, except for this one.

Isn't that a funny picture? I Googled "wet fish" hoping for something to go with my "slapped in the face" comment and that came up. Seriously, how perfect is that?

I'm thinking about cutting down my TV. There are some shows I think could definitely be cut out of the schedule and everything else could be DVR'd and watched in one night. I hate to say it, but I think two of my favorites, Bones and House, may be at the top of the list.

Shows that'll stay: How I Met Your Mother, Sarah Conor Chronicles, Fringe (Walter rocks!) The Ex Factor (a new fav), Numb3rs and Life. Although, some of these may even get cut as soon as college basketball starts.

The reason for my possible sacrifice of Seeley, Tempe and Greg? Well, there's some professional development I want to do and it has to be done on my time. I can either cut into TV or sleep, and I already sleep less than most people I know.

That's it for today. Back to PowerPoint land.

She isn't real. That is what bothers me...don't claim to be real and then push your kid around in an insanely priced stroller as you wear your designer duds.

But she's donating them to charity when the campaign is over. They could have gotten more, for less, at Target.

I didn't know about the stroller, did the RNC really pay for a stroller?
