Internet Back Again!

I didn’t have to do anything to my husband’s alien blinking array in the closet, let’s hope all his machinations (routers et al) resolved their own issues without my intervening. Or, they didn’t do anything today and it’ll be a few days until the new tower goes up and he’ll be here tomorrow so he can deal with tech and I’ll do the rest.

My husband is a meat and potatoes or pasta with meat sauce guy. He has taught himself this Italian sausage and pasta dish that is good but gets tomato sauce everywhere, walls, stove et al. It is the only thing he makes besides toast, I’ve a photo from his mother of him making toast at age four. It took 30 years for him to learn to make a grilled cheese sandwich “so that’s how you do it” and he prefers mine.

When he’s away I make all vegetarian or cook fish. He can’t even smell fish cooking because of allergies. These are my indulgences. Yes, my watch dog/herder is here to save me as he’s only gone for hours.

Tonight, scallops (again) with sauteed potatoes and arugula. Perhaps some Limoncello gelato with one of the last lemon Girl Scout cookies as a side. Coast Guard is out. Something must be wrong.

Later, friend, Dee.

Denial and Weiner

Um, what I get from this is that Twitter is no different than other social or other media, including blogs or radio or tv interviews, papparazi or leaked information. This promising politician was caught with his pants almost down.

And his downfall, politically and with his wife, is due to te internet. Dear Congressman Weiner: Please look up John Edwards and his current presidential potential. And Weiner didn’t even get to meet the girl(s) or have a baby.”

He says he won’t resign. His constituency will have the last word on that.

Alpha males, are they? The ones whose wives put them through school then are exchanged for a younger model. That was the old version. Now anyone with internet access can send and receive dirty photos. I don’t care about the congressman because he’s an adult and hopefully the person he sent the crude photo to was over 18. I do care when high school kids don’t care what’s on their myspace, twitter, facebook or other account because they have no other emotional outlet. Hello, that invites pedophiles.

Hey girls, remember journals? Write in one, you may have a book someday. Don’t put anything online that you don’t want others to read now and well into the future. The best friend you hate today may be back tomorrow and you make nice, everything is forgiven and you have this tweet hanging out there saying you hate her.

There is a future, and everything you put on line will be there for everyone to see for eons. Your social networking sites are making sure they have a lifetime of data on you and everything you do, will collate it with how you shop et al to know you more than you mother does.

I do not appreciate Congressman Weiner’s indescretions but believe that’s up to his wife to judge. Right now I just think he’s an idiot for blowing what could have been a great public career. Best wishes for our elected members, Dee
