The DRV on my 32-inch TV didn't go where it was set to go. It didn't move from NBC to ABC. WTF? It never recorded LOST. But I have a 9-inch TV in my office with a DVR. That DVR worked properly. I am now watching LOST. It's a small screen, but it is LOST.

My washing machine, which is on the 3rd floor, flooded. Now, the floor on the 3rd floor and part of the second floor ceiling are water damaged.

I brought mom to her new place, a rehab center about 11 miles from home. She is much closer now. I can get to her within 20 minutes. It took me over an hour to go to the hospital. Speaking of the hospital, I have a long list of complaints to make tomorrow:

1. Mom needed assistance and it took them 2 hours to respond. I know, I was there.

2. They failed to wash her in the morning.

3. They never took her menu requests and she ended up getting food she didn't care for.

4. They left her sitting in a chair from 9 am till 3 pm. Never bothered to check in on her to see whether she needed assistance or go to the bathroom. They didn't give her the nurse button either. Also, they gave her her lunch at 3 pm. They had to reheat it for her. Is this a way to treat the elderly?

5. She was to be discharged, but refused to dress her. They wanted her to go to the new facility wearing her hospital gown. It was very cold out. When I complained, they told me that it was better for her to go in her gown,  as she would have to be dressed for bed in the new facility. WTF, it was cold out. Besides, they told me that she was not ill enough to travel by ambulance, hence I would have to drive her myself. This meant that she would have to sit in my car wearing a hospital gown with no underwear. Are these people barbarians? I insisted that they dress her. They did.

6. They had an inexperienced high school student take her down to  my car in a wheel chair. He didn't know how to assist her to sit in my car.  Mom was hurt in the process. How can they send an inexperienced kid to transport and  assist a person who just had orthopedic surgery?

7. Mom's blood pressure is low. She may still be bleeding internally. This means that they discharged her when she was still needing medical care. Not good.

My 92-year-old mom called and she sounded all shook up. Apparently, our refrigerator door fell and barely missed her. She surely would have died or some part of her body would have been broken severly if the door had fallen on her. I called the repair people. They can come out on Friday. Today is Wednesday. WTF? What happens to my food till then? Grrrrr.....

  1. Homosexuality is not natural, much like eyeglasses, polyester, and birth control are not natural.
  2. Heterosexual marriages are valid because they produce children. Infertile couples and old people cannot get legally married because the world needs more children.
  3. Obviously gay parents will raise gay children because straight parents only raise straight children.
  4. Straight marriage will be less meaningful, since Britney Spears's 55-hour just-for-fun marriage was meaningful.
  5. Heterosexual marriage has been around for a long time, and it hasn't changed at all: women are property, Blacks can't marry Whites, and divorce is illegal.
  6. Gay marriage should be decided by the people, not the courts, because the majority-elected legislatures, not courts, have historically protected the rights of minorities.
  7. Gay marriage is not supported by religion. In a theocracy like ours, the values of one religion are always imposed on the entire country. That's why we only have one religion in America.
  8. Gay marriage will encourage people to be gay, in the same way that hanging around tall people makes you tall.
  9. Legalizing gay marriage will open the door to all kinds of crazy behavior. People may even wish to marry their pets because a dog has legal standing and can sign a marriage license.
  10. Children can never succeed without both male and female role models at home. That's why single parents are forbidden to raise children.
  11. Gay marriage will change the foundation of society. Heterosexual marriage has been around for a long time, and we could never adapt to new social norms because we haven't adapted to cars or longer lifespans.
  12. Civil unions, providing most of the same benefits as marriage with a different name are better, because a "separate but equal" institution is always constitutional. Separate schools for African-Americans worked just as well as separate marriages will for gays & lesbians.
