I Need To......

.....pull my head out of my ass.

I have to shift focus. I am floating along on a sea of disappointment. My sense of ennui threatens to overwhelm me.

McCain lost. And right now I know he is focused on other things but it is really starting to bug me that he hasn't flamed whoever is talking smack about Sarah Palin.

I need to find something new to read. I've finished Barnett's "The Pentagon's New Map". Did you know the CNO has a reading list? So, where will I start? Wouk? Mahan? I really want to read that Admiral King biography. SB talked about it and King sounds like a guy who would appreciate a Swabbie Doxie like me.

I need to get back to the gym.

I need to get some stuff accomplished.

But none of that is going to happen today. I am going to pick up some lunch and go home and read "The Given Day" by Dennis Lehane.

Completely off-topic, but funny:

"Hey, Republican friend, did you see that news story on Bush?"
"Yeah, the MSM is so biased."
"Hey, Democrat friend, did you see that news story on Bush?"
"Yeah, the MSM is so biased."

The Admiral King bio sounds extremely interesting.

ADM King was a great SWO and a bad boy....there really is no better combo.

Being that it is the Birthday of the Marine Corps, I will recommend a book sure to keep you entertained.

Shooter is only for those who want to enjoy a good story.

Have you read Truman by McCullough? I highly recommend it.
