a bad shot

The National, which is usually impervious to slings and arrows despite the media's attempts to demonize the club, has hit a bunker shot as far as I am concerned.

I don't care for the fact that the Augusta National Golf Club felt the need to publicize the two newest members of their club, one being Condi Rice (whom I very much admire and wish had run for president four years ago, but I digress). 

Despite the fact that the info is "out there" for folks to find if they really wanted to, it seems as if the prestigious, private golf club usually maintains as much privacy as possible for it's members. A fact, I am sure, they appreciate when they travel to the Garden City for a few rounds of golf.  Private doesn't mean private anymore?

I think if they decide to invite lady golfers to their club, it is their prerogative, but this recent publicity stunt is a cheap way of pandering to the media.  It is a drop of blood in the water to incite a feeding frenzy.  Wonder if Martha Burk will sit down and hush now?  I doubt it.  This exacerbates political correctness in the world of golf. 

Is there no where for us to escape it?!?

In review, I am glad Condi Rice is a member at The Augusta National, I just wish it didn't have to be so gaudy and splashy and common.  The end.

Why, oh why, does milk have to splatter that far when the cup tumbles to the dining room floor?  I mean, our dining room is almost 200 sq ft.  Really?!?  It wasn't even that much milk either. 

let's go to the hop

So King was finishing up the last touches of putting his basement office back together after the flood from the torrential rains happened.... and #5, who is just sure she will be attacked by roaches and spiders if she steps on the first step to go downstairs, hollers down to her Daddy,

"Do we have any more huler hoops down there?"

Apparently we have some leftover hula hoops from a certain 17 year old's 13th birthday sock hop.  Sad.  Also, I think I may be featured on an upcoming episode of Hoarders: Buried Alive.

Thinking she wouldn't wake anyone, the oldest was trying to quietly tiptoe around the house to get ready to leave for her morning softball practice.  Only, she forgot the alarm was set. 

Now we all have a case of jello legs. 

Upside: alarm still works.

brown ain't done jack for me

Dear UPS~

On July 23rd I ordered some medicine from CVS dot com.  You brought the package all the way to my town and then ...what?.. handed it over to the USPS to be delivered?!?!?! 

What the cuss?!?!?!!  Is this a normal procedure? 

Well, anyhoodle, I haven't gotten the medicine yet.  11 days!  Why didn't you just deliver it like you do any other package? 

pffft.  Stewpid!

ps- USPS, I am mad at you, too.  Big Dummy.

No 5 just admitted to me that she used to think grilled cheese sandwiches were called "girl cheese sandwiches."
