Sorry, I can't help myself

Right now the NY Times is running a picture of Saddam Hussein on its homepage and under it is this story lead-in:

Could a New Strongman Help in Iraq?
Many ordinary Iraqis now crave a leader to end the country’s chaos, even at a cost to due process, human rights and democracy.


My thought? Send them Dubya! He could live out his dreams. If he doesn't get killed within the first five minutes!

Light at the end of the tunnel

I feel like I'm finally pulling my sh*t together, after being discombulated for most of this year. The office is cleaned, my bills are paid, Inception is done, a web project that's dragged on since May is done, and almost every day I strike off at least one item off my To Do list. I was in quite a rut but I think (knock, knock, knock on that wood) I'm climbing out!

Today was a nice mix of accomplishment and leisure:
  • Read up to p. 100 in Strange Robby, the Outworlders' book group monthly selection.
  • Breakfast at Alon's with Caleb and Daniel.
  • Outworlders' book group meeting
  • Finished Inception and launched it online
  • Watched Alien v. Predator over at Caleb's
  • Nice ratatouille dinner by Caleb, followed by tea and chocolate
  • Entered receipts into financial software

There are still some major items I need to attend to, but the load on my shoulders is feeling so much more reasonable.
