My MacBook Pro is officially dead; it will join my 2001 Ford Taurus in the machine afterlife (i.e., getting cannibalized for parts and "living on" in other pieces of machinery). It hath not been cast into the lake of fire; nor hath it gained eternal life. Verily, I say unto thee, don't EVER drop a 5.5-pound MacBook Pro. It's like an elderly person slipping and falling on the ice. The long-term consequences can be devastating.
As I type on my wife's antiquated Dell desktop, I await delivery of my Lenovo laptop (I couldn't afford another Mac -- not for the time being). More on that later.
Let me just say that I am thoroughly enjoying seeing the arrogant O'Bummer administration get its name and reputation pummeled due to the disastrous roll-out of the Obamacare website. Even formerly friendly, sycophant allies like the New York Times have published critical pieces in recent days. Ironic, isn't it, that this brilliant Harvard law professor who's supposed to be so much smarter than the rest of us has as his "signature achievement" a train wreck of a law, something that's the butt of jokes. LUV IT! Much more on that later.
Today I will enjoy some hops-n-grains (the chilled, liquid variety) and take in the Michigan State Spartans at Illinois. Illinois is only 3-3, but has one of those dangerous mobile quarterbacks (Nathan Scheelhaase) who at times can give fits to MSU's defense. This guy is the real deal, with a gaudy 65 percent completion rate and the wheels to pile up huge rushing yards. I am not comfortable going into this game, but maybe it's just because years of heartache and heartbreak as a Spartans fan have conditioned me well. More on this game later.
Enjoy the weekend, folks. I won't be doing any in-depth blogging until I get my own machine and things get back to normal.
