3609 Fairy dancer

Wednesday, September 6, 2012

I have the body of a Corvette. A '66 Corvette.


From the WSJ Law Blog:
"A federal appeals court on Wednesday blocked a Minnesota campaign finance law that it said overburdened corporations that want to spend money to influence elections."
Think about that a bit, especially the last five words. Full story at the above link.


Beautiful!  I swear I can see a spirit dancing inside.


I dislike people who think fashion is more important than substance, so forgive my commenting on Michelle Obama's clothes, but too often I think her clothing is too tight across the bust, and it hurts me!

I get pain in my breasts every time I look at hers.  I feel like I can't breathe.  There's something weird about her bra - it seems to flatten her on the sides.  It looks like it hurts.  It makes it difficult for me to see or hear anything else.

Free the girls, Michelle!  Let them breathe!


My new Kenmore refrigerator arrived last Thursday.  I like it.  But it arrived with the doors hinged on the right.  I had ordered it hinged on the left, and I'm sure the salesman noted that because he asked me to verify the order before he hit Enter.  The delivery guys said they couldn't change it, it should have been done at the warehouse, so I'd have to call service.

Now, understand that one consideration that went into this purchase was the availability of service.  Sears services everything they sell, as opposed to, say, Sam's Appliance Sales.

It has taken me four days, four phone calls, a trip to the store to talk to the salesman, a threat to return the damn thing because what was delivered was not what I ordered, and two attempts at online chat --- to simply schedule a service call, and they can't come until the 12th.

I am spitting nails.

(I did look at the manual to see if I could do it myself, but the directions mention a certain "set screw" that doesn't seem to exist.  There's nothing but smooth metal where the arrow in the illustration points.  Hercules looked, too.  He couldn't figure it out, either.  I'm beginning to wonder if that's why the warehouse guys didn't do it - they couldn't figure out how.)

Uh, yeah. Sears. I didn't say anything after your post before said you'd already bought it. But I don't like mine. I got a cheaper version and the drawers are like nails on a blackboard when they come out.

I keep willing it to die.
