There are always stocked spirits here. After the last two elections I'm afraid to think about this one for any time. How many heartbreaks can a person take?

January. That's when we really celebrate because whomever wins the presidency their last name won't be Bush.

The anniversary of King Haile Selassie's funeral - Eyrie eyrie maaahhhn!

Angie said...

Note to self: Close bookstore the day after election day so I can recover from too much drink and not enough sleep.

okjimm said...

Ok. It is off topic, like, wowsers &stuff...there is a topic on April Fool's Day!!!!.....but I have been reading quotes and I kinda liked this one...

'Whatever I take, I take too much or too little; I do not take the exact amount. The exact amount is no use to me.'

~Antonio Porchia, Voces, 1943, translated from Spanish by W.S. Merwin

It sounded so Randal-ish.

I will buy beer for everyone!!! But'cha gotta hurry...offer only good for the next ten minutes.

Freida Bee said...

You so could have written that cartoon. DId you.

Randal Graves said...

okjimm, won't get fooled again!

fran, we don't serve alcohol here. I don't know where you got that crazy idea!

LBR, but you do, dontcha!

okjimm, that is a great quote! If I ever decide to take something, I will definitely follow those words. As for the drinks, how about you offer to buy about 8 AM instead?

FB, oh hell no, that's award-winning Ted Rall. I just write bad snark and even worse poems.

okjimm said...

8am sounds fine. But I do live in the small pocket of WI that is semi-civilized. The Pubs do not open until 9am. So 8am it is just coffee, buddy. Coffee just gets me jittery, and then I have to drink beer to calm down.

dguzman said...

Like OKJimm, I'll start with coffee, so I can stay awake to drink as long as possible.

I fear we're gonna need it even more in the coming months.

Candace said...

Um, yeah - there's still some unopened champagne from the 2000 election.

Randal Graves said...

okjimm and dguzman, I'm never one to turn away coffee, but I drink so much, I never get jittery. That's probably a bad sign.

candace, this time, let's hope we're not reduced to letting fruits o' the vine age.
