I am back at the humble abode as Yuppie sista finally came home from her little Vegas trip. Dad is at her house in San Diego and his beautiful cat is staying w/the whack job neighbor. This isn't the best place for him, but its the only place for him as he wouldn't make it through the four hour trip to my place, plus he is an outdoor cat who has never known the world outside that complex.
Dad was a royal pain in the ass, wanting to keep all his blackened, soot-filled, water-logged stuff...most of it can be replaced, his memorabilia (pictures, war medals, commendations etc) were fine and intact...and to me, that is what counted the most. Arguments ensued and everyone in the family....none of which actually came to Escondido to help, think I am a real bitch with a cold heart.
I have no idea what has gone on in the real world, could you guys fill me in on the important stuff? Did BP go bankrupt or actually do something right, did Obama rent a set of balls and kick some Republican ass? Did the Dem's call out the rightwing nutters who refuse to help those A LOT less fortunate than themselves and give them their paltry unemployment?
I haven't slept in 48 hours, I ate once in those 48 hours and I have never felt this beat down...but a little sleep and a bowl or two of medicinal herb might do wonders for me.
I have Olbermann on the telly and Rachel will follow...hopefully I will fall asleep soon and miss all the ugly details of how rotten life is here in the US of A for a lot of folks...
Oh, they id'd the meth freak...he was burnt beyond recognition. Seeing as how he burnt four families out of their homes..it's hard to drum up sympathy for him...they did find some kind of torch thingy that meth and crack folks use in the dining room...how they found anything intact in that place amazes me. Fire investigators have been crawling all over the place....which BTW..will be completely condemned as the roof is falling in on the two middle units. No fire walls between the units...so damage is from end to end.
The guy was a squatter in a foreclosed condo...the bank will be handing out checks soon we hope...but we aren't holding our breath.
Dad had NO renters insurance. Thank heaven we do...
