Sorry, no W. Porn Today

"Bush Exposes Himself on Tape" -this was the AOL headline yesterday. Not that I want to see any W porn, but the actual story isn't anywhere near as funny as I first thought it would be.

Although W. is a nincompoop in many, many ways, it always makes me giggle when I come across a "conventional wisdom" about him that didn't prove true. For example, how many times did you hear pundits insist, "Bush is going to 'find' Bin Ladin/ the WMDs in Iraq the week before the election!" Nope. Didn't happen.

Besides, everyone knows that Bin Ladin is working at a 7-11 in NJ. (drum fill.) And if you want WMDs, there's a nut-job in North Korea who keeps jumping up and down and waving his hands in the air, screaming, "Yoo-hoo, over here!" But I guess we're going to let China wipe him out when he gets out of line. They deserve their share of the fun too.

This world has just become too goddamn confusing.

On a happy note, this is the 10th anniversary of my first date with Jennifer. I've shared almost a third of my life with this precious angel. It was a Tuesday. We went out to dinner where I impressed her with my flaming wallet trick (whatever happened to that thing?) and then we saw Pulp Fiction. How's that for romantic? On a bizarre note, almost every girl I've gone out with, I either met or had our first date on a Tuesday. Weird.
