I could have used necromantic skills last night to get Regis off Letterman so that Paul Morrissey could appear. Paul grew up across the street from us, his parents still live there. Paul is a commedian in LA these days, who got bumped off the show due to the boring Regis staying on all night. Website.

Can someone take my Friday next week, as I may still be in the hospital?

I’m here. For a little while. My wife’s brother is getting married tomorrow. I’m the best man and Sarah is one of the bridesmaids.

"Sunday is my birthday, so I am accepting birthday wishes and cakes."

Happy Birthday, if and when you get there.

Necromancer - I thought maybe it had something to do with vampires. Aren't they neck-romancers?

There once was a foreign policy of such inconsistency
That Jay Carney could only defend it as expediency
When pressed by Fox
At one of his talks
He said White House decisions are made by necromancy

Obama employs necromancy
As did Ronald Reagan’s wife, Nancy
For her, they were larks
But Barack channels Marx
And Joe Stalin when it strikes his fancy

Able to leap tall buildings with a boundless plan!
Able to outrun the truth with a continuous lie!
Against truth, justice and the American way!

Necroman!

Michael Scott has written a series of books about a necromancer. Not the Michael Scott from The Office. But the books are written for older children/teens and are interesting stories. I have decided to postpone my dental emergency since I have too much going on in the next few days and need a clear head and an unbruised, nonpuffy face to get things done.

I’m in the car en route to the frozen tundra for our niece’s wedding tomorrow. Xsteen is bridesmaid, xsboy and xsbaby are bringing up the gifts and xshub is doing a reading(he’s godfather to the bride).

It raises the question. “Begging the question” means to argue for a conclusion by assuming the conclusion in the arguments being made.

Not that the other Michael Scott doesn't produce quality work himself.

I’m not hurt. They’re having godparents read, cousins bringing up the gifts. No role for aunt by marriage.

Thank you for accepting it in the spirit I intended!

It’s a common misuse that bugs the hell out of people who know logic.

Wedding will be a bit of a tearjerker. Bride’s mom, xshub’s sister, died about 12 yrs ago, of breast cancer. Bride had her mom’s wedding dress made into a cocktail style dress for the rehearsal/dinner.

Saturday is a farewell party for our pastor who is moving on to another parish. Sunday is a celebration party for our new Deacon, who was ordained this month. It will be his first time on the altar as a deacon. I don’t know which party I want to attend more. Busy weekend, especially with throwing in my own birthday celebration. Add to that being taken off all painkillers till after surgery and I am already hurting a little more every day. Starting to limp again when I walk.
