Out of the Blue

So it's September already? This seems especially distressing here in the BlueTower, since it serves as a reminder of how our moving process has dragged on, as we started gearing up to move at some point in January. How protracted this has become is in even stronger focus, since this is also the Labor Day weekend here in the U.S.A., which marks the unofficial end of summer. The good news is that we are close to ready to put the house on the market, but there's even more downside, as the house we were most excited about possibly buying is now listed as "pending," so our delay has probably cost us this opportunity.

It annoys me that I know who Alex Jones is.
It does make you feel like wire brushing your brain when some simpleton mentions him. I feel your pain.

I saw a segment* on his show about Osteen recently, and despite being inclined to agree with the general sentiment, the whole thing was off putting. The guy doesn't just come off as an ill informed raving lunatic, but seemed very inauthentic to me, just looking to jump off into the deep-end with whatever topic one of his listeners with anger management issues called about. He's a nutcase, but he's also a charlatan.

*Note this is the first time I've seen his actual show and not as part of a news segment discussing him.

It's funny, when his wife filed for divorce, claiming she didn't want her children raised with a daily diet of right-wing lunacy (A Jones works from home), that's exactly what Alex told the court: "It's an act! I'm not really that way!"

RE: Osteen. I love how a supposed Christian pastor has to be shamed into being charitable and helping people.
I'm a smoldering volcano of virility. At least, that's what I tell myself.
