Killer diller chiller

It was chilly enough down here at the foot of the Sandias. Up at the top, where Herself and friend Kelli were, it was downright wintry. Photo | Herself

The temperature was in the 30s this morning when I decided to go for a run.

Rogue killers trying to shove me off by subtly inflicting a chill that blossoms into pneumonia? Who knows?

I bundled up and got after it anyway. Tights, tuque, the works. A fella can’t burn daylight, however feeble, just chillin’.

    You’ve got to watch them rogue killers. They can pop up anywhere, wearing all kinds of disguises. Some even look like Arab hitmen. Go figure.

      Handy hint: If the embassy staff are all wearing clear vinyl raincoats, faceguards and rubber gloves, and you hear the sound of a chainsaw starting up, depart at once and with all possible haste.

    Come on guys, they are letting women drive. What’s not to like?

      Now they’re going to the trouble of concocting a tale about an interrogation gone horribly wrong.

      As Kevin Drum at MoJo notes, “I guess we should at least be grateful that the Saudis are now demonstrating enough respect for world opinion to make up a lie. It’s slightly better than telling us all to go fuck ourselves, which has been the basic Saudi story up until now.”

    Woke up this morning to 45 degrees and a steady rain. The mountains shrouded in clouds. We have had too much rain (I know, sacrilege) and clouds in the last 5 days for us desert rats. I’m depressed, but I did get a nice ride in yesterday. That new Co-Motion Carrera my tandem riding buddies got is fast and beautiful. A yellow Reynolds 853 missile. Sucking wheel, when I could hold it, for the first half of the ride.

    Back on the very cold plains of Iowa after a quick visit to DeeCee to check in with the wife who is hobknobbing with fellow Greek wizards there this month. Looks sunny and clear out there despite the 33 degrees – perhaps it’ll get warm enough for a quick ride on a bicycle? What will Fat Nixon do when it’s obvious to everyone our “friends” in Saudi Arabia killed and carved the guy up? Will he continue to blather on about how the arms sale (which in itself is pretty much BS) is too important to get worked up over? After all, to him this guy was an “enemy of the people”, right?

    • Patrick O'Grady Says:

      DeeCee? Yow. I hope you had yourself disinfected afterward.

      As for Darth Cheeto, what he “knows” is whatever the last adviser said to him before he opened his piehole. Mayflies have a longer shelf life than an idea slipped under his combover.

    One of your better lines Patrick.
