I had lots of entries on my friends page over the weekend.

Had a good weekend. Once again I went out taking pictures Friday night while Tandra worked. Then just bummed around on Saturday. Yesterday was the greatest though. Miah and his dad Bruce and I all went out to Santa Fe Lake with our bikes and cameras. We went biking and took pictures of us biking. I'm a little sore, but not as bad as I thought I would be. We certainly have to get in shape. And I flattened a tire, which means I have to get a tube and get it fixed by Wednesday. Since we all know Wednesday is biking day, and it appears the weather will be conducive to riding this week. WOOHOO! Our first biking Wednesday this year!

Yesterday I decided to weigh myself. This is something I only do when I go to the doctor's office since I really don't care. Last time I was weighed, I was something like 150. That was a long time ago, and I know I've put on weight because I had to get all new pants with a size 36 waist, up from a 32 and the occasional 34. So I figure I'll weigh myself now, and then weigh myself again in the middle of the summer or even at the end of the summer to see if biking helps me lose any weight.

I weigh 180 pounds. I can't believe that. I mean, on the bright side, I carry it well. I never would have guessed that, but still. My frame is too small for me to weigh that much. Guess I'll be hitting the new stairstepper machine that Tandra bought for $20 at an estate sale in addition to riding once or twice a week.

All we are saying... is give war a chance

The U.S. and Britain today have aborted efforts to advance the U.N. resolution calling for Iraq to disarm, and it's FRANCE'S FUCKING FAULT. Bastards. Fucking Jacques Chirac and his beret-wearing chumps are obstinately blocking any vote that would allow the U.N. to go to war against Iraq. Makes you wonder what France has invested in peace over there.

Anyhow, tonight Bush will go on T.V. again and tell Saddam to either leave Iraq or face war, so it looks like there will be war because you KNOW Saddam's stubborn ass isn't going anywhere. That jives with what I've heard around here. At my work, we manufacture things that the military uses, and our orders have been at record levels in the last week or so. Everyone is predicting action very soon.

Everyone is closing their embassies in Baghdad and moving their ambassadors out of the country. U.N. officials are leaving the country as well. The United States has ordered all government dependents and nonessential staff out of Kuwait, Syria, Israel and the West Bank and Gaza in case of possible retaliation by Iraq. U.N. weapons inspectors flew five of their eight helicopters to Syria on Sunday and then on to Cyprus today after an insurance company suspended its coverage.

Here we go again. They better pop that motherfucker's head this time around. I hope pictures of Saddam with a hole in his melon get wide press circulation.
