Another First Monday
Well, it is Monday and I’m back in the swing of full-time unemployment. I swept out my room in the basement today and arranged the furniture around a bit. Sue lent me a box fan that I can get in the window, to provide valuable late-summer-in-Chicago cooling. After much interstate bureacratic process, my unemployment claim should be validated and checks will soon be on the way, the claim period properly backdated. Yay.
Grandma treated me and Uncle John and Bert and Jane to brunch at Le Peep this morning, in Evanston, on the idea that Bert is another year older today. The French toast was darned good. Not Sam’s Cafe in Champaign good, but darned good for sure.
I spent a lot of time today in e-mail proof-reading resumes and cover letters for Yayoi. She moved to a new place on Sunday, and she doesn’t have a phone line yet, much less Internet access, so she was chilling with the ol’ laptop down at Green Street Coffee House. After much of this helping someone else find a job, did my laundry and got started trying to write up ideas I want to implement on a future web site. The idea is if I can write down the ideas I have a better chance of implementing them, and of recruiting external resources to my cause. We’ll see how that goes.
Meanwhile, Salon.com reports that I can retain my faith in the legal system, as U.S. District Judge Denny Chin smacked Fox down for being shrill and unstable. We can add that to the fact that Mister Alabama-Supreme-Court-Chief-Justice-Ten-Commandmants man has been overruled by his peers on the Alabama Supreme Court, and last I recall he’s been suspended because he apparently has a hard time following the laws on the United States of America. I can relate. But then we expect a bit more of the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Alabama, especially if he thinks he’s so fucking pious. Well, maybe he thinks he’s a little too so fucking pious, but I mean, who does he think he is? Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Alabama? That’s still a few ranks down from Moses.
I mean, it’s Alabama for Christ’s sake.
