Last night was a long one. A series of thoughts followed by other thoughts which were followed eventually by day break. I finally managed to doze off around six. Now I'm up with four and a half hours of sleep under my belt. I had forgotten what it was like to greet the new day from the other side. Right now I feel very lethargic, it's like the bad old days of shift work and I don't like it.
You will be happy to know that the RNC circus is in town. Up and running in Cleveland, the Donald is holding court and things are turning out as many expected.
Surprisingly one of the big winners at the RNC convention is Mr. Chris Christie. He has managed to get his face out there, only this time it's on the official Chris Christie Bobblehead. Now if this had happened before he stepped down from his presidential candidacy... No, it wouldn't have helped.
Enough of the politics, here are some real links.
Not to much is known about the goings on in this story. It appears that there was a dispute between some city workers trying to lay pavement down and an elderly woman. In the end the two sides would not budge with predictable results. This is a case of life imitating art, the art being a scene from Douglas Adam's Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy - without the destruction of earth of course.
Remember the old days where if you didn't make the cheerleader team you simply sucked up the disappointment and moved on? Well that was then and this is now.
One thing I learned about criminal activity back in the day was the golden rule. If you are going to do something stupid, illegal and where there may be interaction with the law keep your big mouth shut about it or, in this case, don't post it on FaceBook.
First there was "Don't text and drive. Now there is "Don't Pokemon and drive." Yes folks they drive among us.
Finally here is a link about a service that I hope and pray will catch on, an adult ice cream truck.
That's all from me up here North of Disorder.
