Republ..NO!!!! Better things.

Well my despair at the lack of ethics in a certain American currently-in-power-but-hopefully-not-for-long political party post is all ready....and I can't quite summon the gorge to post it.

*gag*

The whole thing makes me kind of sick to my stomach

SO

With a good ostrich imitation I am turning my back on the whole mess.

Can I just say that one of the things I find pathetic about being an adult is that I am excited and happy to have a day when I can catch up on work and homework. That is just pitiful sad.

We have been invited to join a team of castallers maybe....you know, these guys....I am pretty excited, though there are a whole lot of ifs before we get to doing it.





Maybe we should send the nominees off on this sort of training...could help with non-partisan team building don't you think?

I am SO OBSESSED!

Moving right along....youngest started it off, but it would be cool...I am a little taller than average here though, not sure how that would work.....not something you could learn anywhere....I could add another highly local sport to the ones I've participated in....Ice canoeing in Quebec city, racing in the Family Island regatta in traditional (sort of) Bahamian fishing boats and now maybe this...kinda cool I think, if we pull it off.

I *hope* the current party in America is out in just over 20-some days!

Hi, Oreneta! I found you through an expat blog directory. I am current an American expat living in Germany, but have a sneaky suspicion my husband might take a job in Barcelona late next year. So, I'll be following your site with extra interest over the next year or so. No pressure or anything. ;-)

I think that looks likes fun. Maybe a little scary, depending on who's on the bottom...but fun.

Hmmm... how far up do you have to be?? I think it is a good thing that you are younger than I...LOL!

No worries, that certain not-to-be-named-person is outta here soon! It will be replaced by our first president since Kennedy with more than a 2 syllable name. "That guy" is wayyyy ahead in the polls.
