High Weirdness Drifter


This has been an exhausting week for me and my head feels like my brains were replaced with meatloaf by demented pixies while I was sleeping last night. With all that has been in the news over the past 2 or 3 weeks it’s a wonder that all of us aren’t oozing ketchup from the cranial cavity. Instead of a long rant today, or poking fun at the politicians it’s time for a news roundup of the scary, worrisome and goofy news of the day. I'm so lazy and frazzled that I'm not even going to go through the effort of embedding the links. Ya'll will either click, or you won't. It's not important to make it look all "pretty" today. Cope.

Hurricane Humberto continues to give scientists the heebie jeebies as some of their computer models show the storm turning south, re-entering the Gulf of Mexico and taking the shape and form of a masked Mexican wrestler.

Disgraced former football player OJ Simpson is at the center of an incident in Las Vegas. No, there are no dead white women involved. In this instance it’s a bunch of sports memorabilia. Go figure. http://www.mercurynews.com/breakingnews/ci_6893101
