Stream of (Un)Consciousness

It's been a while since I've allowed myself to sit here and let my thoughts flow. I've been so busy lately with things that have kept me away from the computer. This is a good thing in some ways, but I don't like not having enough time for blogging. Was that a double negative? Whatever. Just a bump in the road. Sentence fragments. Yeah, well...

I think Alito is hot. I like him. He's easier for me to look at and listen to than Roberts was. I couldn't get into watching the Roberts confirmation stuff. He looked too plastic or something. But even though Alito is rather 'common' looking I find myself attracted to something about him. Hmmm, if he gets on the Supreme Court there's another reason for me to want that gig too. LOL

Seriously though, this morning in the kitchen I heard on Fox that there was a survey about the Supreme Court that asked people to name 8 of the current Justices. The results were 0% statistically. So I tried to name them, and the kids asked what I was talking about. I could only think of 5 (remember this is less than an hour from waking up) and explained what it was. Then my almost 10 year old asked me if the Supreme Court ruled a certain way, even if it seemed against the law, was it still considered true? I said, well, yeah pretty much because the Supreme Court generally has the last word. I told them that I wanted to be on the Supreme Court.

"But Momma I thought you wanted to be a cop."

WHAT? "No, I never said I wanted to be a cop. But I did say that I wished I could give people tickets for driving bad."

"Then why do you want to be on the Supreme Court?"

What is this, a confirmation hearing? "Uh, because they have the last word." LOL

You wanna be a cop??? You'll have to find new ways to have fun!

Rae Ann said...

dh, no, I said I didn't want to be a cop. Not that there's anything wrong with that, of course. And they do get those handcuffs...

There is a lot to be said for having the last word! You will always be my favorite nominee!

My kid interrogates me too. But I am The Supreme Court.

Rae Ann said...

sylvana, yeah, last he interrogated me about a phone call. He's getting out of control, that one!

Rainypete said...

I'm not usually worried about having the last word. Unless it's a funny word like poop, or titmouse.

Hee hee!

Rae Ann said...

pseudo-intellectual lunatic, thanks! But I need to incorporate it more into my posts again like I used to do.

rainypete, yeah, titmouse is really funny!

That is funny and cute about your children. I saw that on Fox N Friends the other morning too. Sorry I haven't been over lately...I need to catch up.

I was happy to see Madman too...on my Alito post agreeing on this one. It has been a mad house over there with TROLLS....oh wow. anyway...trying to visit my friends. Hope you are recovered from your strep throat....Rachel here had it too...so glad I never got it from her.

You would have had my vote too, but you already know that. (smiling)
