Chocolate Chip Muffins, Toddlers, and Freshly Mopped Floors–Oh My

The grandsons are here today while Mommy is at work and Daddy is doing his Guard service. Meemaw thought it would be a great time to whip up some chocolate chip muffins using the miniature semi-sweet chocolate chips.

Jacob whipped up the egg, oil and milk, then stirred it into the flour, sugar, etc. mixture. Then he stirred in the chocolate chips. They both licked the spoon, then Jacob went out to drive the riding lawnmower under Papa’s watchful eyes which allowed the muffins to actually bake since otherwise the boys would want to look at them every 30 seconds to see if they were done yet. I convinced both boys that it would be a good idea to eat those muffins in the kitchen. Soon there were crumbs everywhere and about 25 chocolate chips squished into the clean kitchen floor. *sigh* Could be worse, I suppose. It could have been squished into the carpet!

Update: Little 2-year-old Dylan asked for a paper towel and laboriously cleaned up every squished chocolate chip and some of the crumbs, then proudly announced “all gone!”

The boys are about to go outside to splash in a kiddie pool. Although it is only 18″ deep, I’m going to be sitting with them, closely supervising. There won’t be much in the way of blogging today!

About that Crap and Trade Bill….

Val Prieto (of Babalu Blog fame) said it best:

I had a list, but nothing on it could compare or even come close to meriting the incredible FUCK THE FUCK OFF that our esteemed Body of Congress led by those bastions of democracy – the Democratic party – deserves today.

For submitting the cAP and Trade legislation and for barring any amendments of the 254 or so that were proposed and for allowing a last minute, 300 page amendment shoved in at 3 am this morning thus not giving anyone anytime to read, digest, study or research same, You, esteemed Democrats in Congress, can royally and wholeheartedly FUCK THE FUCK OFF, you clicque of corrupt, disingenuous, socialist FUCKING MOTHER FUCKING FUCKING FUCKS. you have the lowest FUCKING approval rating ever in the history of this FUCKING country and for good FUCKING REASON, you bunch of thieving, conniving, lying sacks of FUCKING RAT FUCK SHIT MOTHERFUCKING FUCKS. Stop stealing our FUCKING hard earned FUCKING money for your own personal power and stop paying for your little FUCKING PET FUCKING PORK PROJECTS with our FUCKING SWEAT, you FUCKING PARASITIC FUCKLEECHES. You arent FUCKING sailors that have been out at sea for ten years at a FUCKING WHOREHOUSE with fistfulls of FUCKING FIFTIES, you irresponsible FUCKING WANTON SPENDING FUCKING FUCKERS. The United States of America isnt your own personal FUCKING ATM, YOU FUCKING LANDLOCKED FUCKING REMORAS. Each FUCKING dollar you FUCKING waste comes FROM MY FUCKING DINNER TABLE, FROM MY FUCKING SWEAT AND FUCKING HARD WORK. You are single handedly FUCKIMNG DESTROYING THIS FUCKING COUNTRY WITH YOUR LIBERAL FUCKING MOTHERFUCKING AGENDA, YOU FUCKING PSEUDOFUCKINGSTALIN S AND ONCE THE FUCKING DUST SETTLES, you better not POINT ANY FUCKING FINGERS, BECAUSE WE WILL ALL KNOW HO IS, FUCKING EXACTLY, TO FUCKING BLAME, YOU FUCKS. NOW FUCK OFF AND FUCKING DIE LIKE GOOD LITTLE FUCKING PARASITES

That’s a good start, but I don’t think he feels as much outrage as I do.

H/T Armybrat at GCP for bringing this righteous rant to my attention. I’m too busy trying to refrain from going to Washington in person to show our elected representatives how I REALLY feel* to even write about it at the moment.

*Rage at these lying, thieving dipshits that aren’t even reading what they’re voting on. I hope somebody on the Republican side slipped a 300-page addendum into the bill at the last minute requiring all the people that voted FOR the bill to be executed upon passage.

Cost of the bill for the average family: $12,161.50

Better start emptying out those piggy banks, folks.

Here’s the list of the congressmorons that voted for the bill. Act accordingly.
