Art imitates life?

There is an article over at BBC News which talks about an upcoming movie on UK digital channel More4 which depicts President Bush being assassinated.

In this article John Beyer, of MediaWatch, says the following:

"There's a lot of feeling against President Bush and this may well put ideas into people's heads."

As if people need a movie to give them ideas like that.

Then at the end of the story a spokesman for the Republican Party of Texas, Gretchen Essell, said:

"I find this shocking, I find it disturbing. I don't know if there are many people in America who would want to watch something like that."

She obviously hasn't been paying attention, has she?

I'm not saying I want the guy dead, that's just not cool but as a work of fiction I'm all for it. Hell, I wish I had access to that channel just so I could see the thing when it comes out.

You better Motherfucking believe it

In response to the current restrictions on air travel comes this:

Killing time

Had an interview today to transfer to a different department. I guess it went well. I won't know for about three weeks though.

Right now I'm sitting in a mall food court wasting as much time as I can so I can go back and pick-up my girlfriend from work at 22:00. Time is crawling... argh. The mall will close soon, then I'll have a whole hour to wait.

Oh well, was nice to have a day to myself that didn't get spent on the couch watching TV.

Why schedule an appointment

It's 08:30, their appointment window is 08:00 to 10:00. I'm here, they're not. I call the number on the account to make sure (it's early, someone might have overslept) and am told by the person on the phone that they will be here in 15 minutes.


If you can not BE HOME for the entirety of your appointment window then don't schedule the appointment in that window. We work seven days a week, surely there's one day that you can be home for a whole two hours. If there isn't then you obviously don't have enough time to use our service anyway.


*wait* *wait* *wait*
