Utter Uselessness

"They told me to call...."

A five word clue that I'm about to embark on a fruitless conversation with someone who is as ill-equipped as they are unprepared.  

I mean, I have no doubt "they" told you to call, but surely there must be a reason for the call besides this vague command from some unidentified "they."  

Is there something you would like to accomplish?  Oh, you don't know?   Well, then....

Tell "them" you called and have a nice day.

Stuff

The Nuggets lost in the first round again.  Jeff Hanneman from Slayer died.  Iron Man 3 is in theaters this weekend.  It's been a pretty crappy week.

But when it comes to marijuana policy, we're doing alright.

Check this out:
The Senate Finance Committee still has yet to vote on a bill that sets a 15 percent excise tax and a 10 percent special sales tax on recreational marijuana.
The State's going to get 10 points on every legal marijuana purchase.  Now them's some terms.

Allergies

Ah, what a strange spring it has been. Weekly snowstorms, cold temperatures, and then when it clears, as it did late last week, an allergy attack of biblical proportions. It started on Friday afternoon with the sniffles. By Saturday, I had the sniffles, a cough, and my eyes wouldn't stop watering. I left work early and drove home with one eye closed. All the trees and grasses figured that they might as well get pumping on the pollen; it is almost May after all.

I slept most of Sunday, getting up long enough to take a shower (I took probably five of them that day) and drink some water. Monday, I put the fever in hay fever and had to drag my sick ass down to Walgreens for some acetaminophen. It reduced the pressure behind my eyeballs enough to at least watch some TV.

Today is the last day of my weekend and while I feel 100% better, I'm still at 50% capacity. I've managed to do some things around the house, like making my bed, but all the big garden stuff...again delayed.

 They say it's going to snow tomorrow, not much, but hopefully enough to exact some revenge on the flora that has been attacking me. Stupid plants...

Cons Conning Cons (But No One Else)

Here's a video of an Alex Jones flunky discovering what it's like when people stop being polite and start getting real.
I can't say that this is the best way to deal with brain-addled conspiracy nuts, but it does seem to be the most appropriate.
