micah holmquist's irregular thoughts and links
Welcome to the musings and notes of a Cadillac, Michigan based writer named Micah Holmquist, who is bothered by his own sarcasm.

Holmquist's full archives are listed here.
Sites Holmquist trys, and often fails, to go no more than a couple of days without visiting (some of which Holmquist regularly swipes links from without attribution)
Blogs that for one reason or another Holmquist would like to read on at least something of a regular basis (always in development)

Yesterday evening I was in the pet food aisle of a grocery store when I see a white guy that I estimate to be within five years of 45 with a Bush/Cheney 04 hat. Thinking that my buddy Max could use one, I say, "Hey nice hat! Where do you get it?"
"I bought it on georgewbushstore.com," he replies [link added, of course].
"Cool I'll have to check that site out," I say in a voice that reflected my indecision on whether to try to sound earnest or to make my sarcasm clear. "I sure hope Bush is reelected. I don't think we are going to have defeated the terrorists by the end of his current term."
"That's why we have to work hard to vote Republican," said he.
Not really sure why but at this point I raised a clenched fist in the air and said, "Vote Republican!" Then I walked away, unable to keep from laughing.
More amusing is the Gen. Leon J. LaPorte and U.S. Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld comedy team:
LaPorte: Thank you.***
What doesn't look funny is The Cat in the Hat movie.
