Wednesday!? Already!?

Okay, whoever keeps messing with the time machine needs to just cut it out RIGHT NOW!

Interesting happenings of late?

Well, let me ask you this--do you know how to make a minor bureaucrat exceedingly happy?

Give him a BRAND NEW PLASTIC SLEEVE for his identity badge, that's what! Got one yesterday and I am quite proud of it. The last one I had finally split where the clippy thing goes on, so I was deathly afraid of losing it, lest I not be able to get into the building and not be able to get to w-...hmm.

I sense a missed opportunity.

In other news, dental appointments yesterday afternoon for three-quarters of the kids. Read a Time magazine, which I haven't done in years. And now I remember why. Although I'm sure that Time's editorial board would vigorously deny it, Entertainment Weekly is actually better written, and serves up more actual news. If nothing else, it's much less self-congratulatory and self-absorbed.

Anyway, back to work.

First of all, welcome back to semi blogging. Second, unless things have changes at dentist offices, the Time you read is probably the very same issue you read the last time you read one.

If they were hammering Reagan's tax policies, that should probably confirm it for you.

Bummer ... no update on Goofus and Gallant?

EW does have prettier pictures. It is incredible to realize how much "Time" has slipped, when it used to be THE news magazine. I guess it did not keep up with the time(s). Or maybe it has something to do with it's rabid liberal bias?!?

Thanks! As for the magazine, it is one of those peculiar things that was dated February 27, 2006, yet for some reason was speaking of the Turin Olympics in some sort of odd futurist-past tense. They seem to think that Sarah Hughes might be a big hit at/during the Olympics that were ongoing at deadline time, yet completely over with by publication time.

And they call it "Time" magazine?

Silly dead tree people.

And sorry for the lack of G&G updates Marc--gotta work on my priorities.

As for "news," Time is nothing more than an opinion magazine. Which is fine, but rather silly for them to keep trying to act impartial.
