Rant, in the key of me…

Well, Wolf made it though her surgery ok and is taking it easy at home, which is a big relief for me.

I haven’t heard anything from Zeze so I don’t know what is happening on that front.

Other than that, it’s more of the same here. I took Friday off and decided that, while there were things I could be doing at work Saturday, it wasn’t a requirement. See, I put in over 230 hours at work between the 5th and the 28th and I needed some time off… Well, still need, but there are things I have to do there that no one else can/will do.

I got a call from Aryntha while Jae and I were at the liquor store Friday night… I was in need of a glass of Glenmorangie and Jae wanted rum and coke for ‘drunken anime night’, which is where Jae and I unwind with an adult beverage and watch anime, which usually makes far more sense after you’ve ‘had a few’.

So Aryntha and Rai trekked over here and we wound up watching Monty Python’s “And Now For Something Completely Different” and three “Family Guy” episodes rather than anime as the only “TV” like devices Jae and I own are computer monitors. And while my 20” LCD is quite nice, it’s tough to see sub titles from across the room on it.

So everyone except Aryntha had a few drinks, watched a few movies, and by the time they were over both Jae and Rai were fairly tipsy.

As always when Aryntha gets around Jae the topic turned to religion and politics…

Jae is probably the only decent Christian (though he won’t admit it) Aryntha gets within forty paces of, and Aryntha has been on a big “republican’s suck, separation of church and state, neocons are in power, Bush is the redneck pope” kick for, well, one and a half terms now and seems to be on a crusade these days. But Jae took it in stride, and while he’s mentioned to me that every time he and Aryntha have been in the same room/car/hallway/space all Aryntha does is needle him on religion, he’s ok with that.

But I still have to mention this to Aryntha and get him to back off a little.
