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
