It really sucks that I would ever find myself agreeing with anything that Fidel Castro has to say.

bq. Bush, charged Castro, could be having a difficult time “distinguishing between relevant and inconsequential information.”

Apparently the non sequiturs that the President threw around a few weeks ago regarding how proud Castro is of his healthy prostitutes were (read for it?) plagiarised from a college student’s web site. And, they were paraphrased badly at that. Go figure.

Are there any fact checkers working for the White House? Any at all?

Well, last tile post until I get some photos online, anyway.

The tile dudes finished up this morning, the kitchen sink is in place, and all is right with the world. Except, of course, that the two women I talk to at work have left me. One to Georgia and the other to the next building over. The one who’s going to Georgia is the one I’ll miss most. Why can’t this company keep any interesting non-retired people? Almost every one of my coworkers is 50 years old and annoying as shit.

I’m supposed to be at work. I should have been there 90 minutes ago. Instead, I’m waiting for the tile guys to come back and do about 30 minutes of work they should have done yesterday. I hate home improvement projects.
