Mocking press releases. Heh.

I know it's not the point of press pool remarks to answer questions, but unintentional humor is good for me tonight. From IM:

I'm still trying to figure out why they released that as a Press Release, since, y'know, not only does it say _absolutely nothing_, it just makes Bush (and I mean Bush The Guy, Not Bush The President) look like a COMPLETE AND TOTAL JERKOFF ASSHOLE. I mean, geez. It's not new-news, but... man, you'd think he'd try to hide it better.

I think it's required to account for how Presidential time is spent.

Honestly, I'm just amused by the whole RIBS/RIBS/support the economy/RIBS thing. It made me hungry, doubly so because I am peevish that I was not woken up in time to join Himself and Gella supporting the Mexican economy today.

He _knew_ how excited I was about getting a Fiesta Jalisco in town -- the restaurant's other locations are in resort towns up the hill and therefore not justifiable to drive to when there's a panaderia at the end of my MIL's block, but FJ has stunning-like-a-blow-to-the-head decor like they took their inspiration from a whorehouse in Tijuana but have slightly decorator-done touches to their food-service stock melamine-topped tables. The important part is that their servers are norteños so I can order in Spanish and translate their jokes for Himself when they're in the kitchen area and think we can't hear them. (Himself is a a big fat gringo.) I think the restaurant opening doubled the Mexican population in Evergreen, too. Yay for that. Did I tell you the local high school got its first ESL student since we've been here (1991)?

Ah, I see.

And I have to admit, it sorta did make me hungry for ribs. But I think it has that effect on nigh-everyone.

Also: You should hit him upside the head for not takin' you to the restaurant.
