Unemployed. Maybe retired. Not sure.
He’s getting a life lesson here, Shop for medical supplies at the dollar store (according to the text on the packet) and you get what you pay for. Did you buy the brain there too?
Hey, I didn’t know of it till I searched on her name and the word “roses.” Published 1998, apparently out of print now, but several copies available on Amazon as pre-owned.
Heh, funny thing just happened, considering the topic at hand. I just looked down to see a trickle of blood on the left side of my right wrist. I’m taking one of the stronger blood thinners, for about eight more months if it does it’s work properly, but I bruise easily and absentmindedly scratching an itch can result in a little flow of blood. I haven’t ruined any clothes yet, but there’s a bed sheet to replace… but I’ll wait a little past eight months from now to do that.
Thank you for the book suggestion, and I am sure you are right that I’d like it. I’m now not short of books I’m sure I will like but the ones I already own will likely take the rest of a normal life span to read. Now, if I were Saint-Germain…
I know that. But the joke doesn’t work otherwise.
I read the first Saint-Germain book by C. Q. Yarbo, but not “Blood Roses,” if that’s the reference. I know that some accounts feature him drinking a concoction of blood and wine. Such a fun guy at parties.
Parker, what a treasure. I especially like her poems about dropping out of school and about suicide. But what a display of wit was her telegram to her editor [I think he was her editor] who was expecting to receive a manuscript from her even though he knew she was on her honeymoon. He telegrammed her asking, and she sent back… Well, I think it might be too “earthy” to repeat here. But easy enough to discover if you haven’t seen it before.
How about if the Biden’s son connection is somewhere between vaporous and imaginary? In any event, even if true, his son has not been charged by anyone anywhere with a violation of the law in this case. The whole affair is too ambiguous. Biden’s boasting account sounds more like a poker bluff than an actual revocation of the deal. The next to last sentence sounds like he was actually surprised that it worked.
Having said all that, I am not supporting him for the Democratic nomination. I think he would have made a good president right after Obama, but I think that ship has sailed. He seems out of his element and is coasting on good will.
Read a bit about Shokin and you’ll see it was for the good of Ukraine that he was fired whether Biden urged it or bluffed about it or not. But if he did, he deserves a “Patriot of Ukraine” badge.
Don’t think I could exist without it.
It won the Pulitzer for non-fiction in 1975 when she was just 29 years old. I’ve read all of her books, some more than once.
The “get me dirt on Biden” thing has not been conclusively connected to the current complaint. It’s been speculated about, but at this point we don’t have all the pieces of the puzzle and the ones we do have don’t make a complete picture.
And the Manafort connection might be seen as working with “anti-Ukraine” rogues rather than working “with Ukraine.” The politician Manafort was supporting was leading a pro-Russian party, as in “Ukraine really belongs to Russia.” And he actually fled to Russia when the evidence against him began to stack up.
