Bits, Bulbs and Boners

Swamette usually has very good ideas. From vast, past experience Swami has learned that it is usually a good idea (sorry, I mean a great idea) to listen to The Lovely Swamette. Because we went a bit overboard for Christmas, Swamette thought that we should try to save some money on other things if at all possible.

This, however, was not one of Swamette's best ideas. In fact, this is the last time that Swami will try to save money by getting his dental work done by Zak the Yak's veterinarian.

Today was warmer than usual for this time of year, but that was good. Like a procastinatic yak, Swami finally got around to planting the daffodil bulbs that Swamette bought several months ago. [Hey, you try working "procrastinatic yak" into a sentence. And, okay, so it isn't in your dictionary; it still should be a word]. As I tried to explain to Swamette, this was my plan all along.

Well, Charlie Gibson of ABC just delivered a scoop of sorts during his coverage of President Ford's funeral in the Capitol in Washington D.C. As the camera was scanning the crowd in the rotunda Charlie was identifying various people; "...and there is Representative John Boehner of Michigan...". That was the first that I was aware that our representative had moved from Ohio to Michigan!

Actually, trying to anchor coverage of something like this, with multiple audio and video feeds, Swami will cut Charlie Gibson some slack. However, with President Ford's funeral, James Brown's funeral, and the execution of Saddam Hussein, all happening almost simultaneously, Swami has had visions of tired, wacked-out correspondents delivering something along the lines of:

"We have now received confirmation of the execution of "The Godfather of Soul." But before we bring you gruesome closeup footage, we will go to our correspondent in New York who will tell us why Saddam Hussein pardoned Gerald Ford. But first a few words from our sponsor, Big Bob's Used Dentures."

Perhaps The Swami should cut-back on the fermented yak milk and stick with the (very tasty) yak cheese.
