My Copilot?


Although I am taking today off (crossing my fingers) I still have to get my staffing and call it in to my boss. If for some reason one of my stores isn’t staffed and I can’t find anyone to work I get to fill the spot. That’s what ownership’s all about.

At least that’s the lie I am telling myself.

If I owned it (solely) I would be closed one day a week.

And on holidays.

And quite possibly when I was on vacation as well.

Thus the fact that I work for someone else. Can’t make any money when you are closed.

Anyhow, I am sitting here making coffee listening to my 10-year-old whine and bitch about the fact that she has to go to church and spend the day with friends while the wife and I go to the Renaissance Festival.

“I don’t like their church, it’s boring” got the answer “just sleep through it, that’s what I do” from me which earned quite a sharp look from the wife.


I have all kinds of respect for other people’s superstitions faith and sometimes that respect comes shining through in the wrong way.

The kids had company over for supper the other night and one of the other children was talking about Jesus with one of our kids. He made the statement about God knowing when you’ve been good or bad so of course Santa Claus Comes to Town pops in my fucking head and I said “Hey, does he check his list twice?”

You better watch out
You better not cry
Better not pout
I’m telling you why
Jesus Christ is coming to town
He’s making a list
And checking it twice;
Gonna crucify anyone not nice
Jesus Christ is coming to town
He sees you when you’re rutting
He knows when you’re awake
He knows if you’ve been bad or good
So be good for goodness sake!
O! You better watch out!
You better not cry
Better not pout
I’m telling you why
Jesus Christ is coming to town
Jesus Christ is coming to town

So how about that Pope? Not Pope Al Gore of the Church of Global Warming but Pope Benedict. He’s on his U.S. Tour in the Popemobile right now. I was hoping to catch his show but it was sold out.

The wife just came in and saw I was getting ready to write something nasty about the Pope, when I really wasn’t so now I won’t. Why would I knock the the head of the largest hypocritical criminal empire in the history of the world? Particularly when they have a direct line to the ear of god. Crap, I might find bugs and shit attacking me were I to think bad things about his holiness.

I need to stop while I’m ahead…

Hey and if anyone wants to come hang, I’ll be at the ren fest in a couple of hours!
