doc brought home cheesesteaks for lunch. mmm, nom nom nom. there is a place that makes them like they do in Philly, the right way. we even had some cheese wiz so i got to make it a sloppy cheesey thing. made up for the fact the onion rings were weird. i let doc eat them. they were over cooked, but not burned, like they had been left in a slow oven for a few hours and then deep fried. the onion wasn't recognizable. strange. so, onion rings from Sonic, steaks from the steak place. you'd never know they had the secret to a great cheese steak. they are located inside a gas station, granted, a real swank gas station, but still. people don't look for authentic regional food inside petrol stations. usually.
the Asian markets are up, maybe the world doesn't really care that we're imploding politically. maybe the world has been waiting for this. Congress: The Great American Fuck-up. i wonder how our markets are going to open. though the markets hate uncertainty, and we have certainty here. our government is certainly shut down. gah!
seems i can't talk about it without making an ugly noise. ack! now they are talking about the Debt Ceiling on the news, like things can get any fucking worse. or can they. is Congress just trying to see how much damage they can get away with doing. maybe they don't want the country to succeed at all. maybe they want the US to fail and all of this moralizing is just a line to keep their constituents distracted while they dismantle the country. how do we know? it could be a vast conspiracy, perpetrated by the group first to yell, "Conspiracy!". they are really steering us toward a theocracy by dismantling every secular part of the government they can get a hold of. and no one will notice until it is too late.
or they're just a bunch of fucking out of touch idiots.
but i like the conspiracy theory, it's my first.
