My hearts just not in it tonight. Maybe its my cold. Maybe Im just in a bad mood. Or, maybe Ive just lost my interest in blogging As Im sitting here, looking at the screen though, I cant think of a single thing that I want to say.

Theres lots that I could write about like Bushs plummeting approval ratings and his desperate attempt to stop them, my dad falling off of his chair with a thud during our most recent baby shower, the fact that a friend of mine in Cincinnati made it through the last cut in this years Project Greenlight scriptwriting competition, or that my aunt just helped me to trace one branch of my family tree back to England in 1655 Its not that Im wanting for material. I just dont feel obsessed by the need to share any of it.

I think maybe its time for a vacation from blogging.

I may change my mind tomorrow, but right now thats what Im thinking about.

Here, before I go, though, is a ridiculous quote from the Reuters coverage of tonights primetime speech by President Bush.

He said one of the “unintended” consequences of Baghdad’s swift fall more than a year ago was that “elite guards shed their uniforms and melted into the civilian population” only to reorganize, re-arm and adopted “sophisticated terrorist tactics.”

So, let me see if Ive got this right – its not that weve been unsuccessful, its that weve been too successful. If it had just taken us a little more time to win the war, we wouldnt be in the situation were now in How fucking stupid is that? And how na�e is it to think that the only resistance our people are seeing in Iraq is from members of the former Iraqi military?

OK, maybe it doesnt really fit in here, but might I suggest that we start a nationwide movement to draft the daughters of George Bush?

Im tired and I just have ten minutes to go until my oxygen gets shut off. (Thats how Im enforcing my new curfew.) As of right now, it doesnt look like Ill be going to work tomorrow (as I type this, my right hand is webbed with snot and Im coughing like an end-stage tuberculosis patient). If thats the case, you might see me show up here at I know I said that Id probably be taking some time off, but tomorrows a new day.

    If I were going to plagiarize, I would plagiarize from someone that I can comprehend. I went to NCs website once and I was completely lost As for comparing myself to Larry Sanders, Im sorry if that made you cringe. In the future, I will limit myself to Fernwood Tonight comparisons. Sadly, Im probably more of a Martin Mull than a Gary Shandling.
