Clown in The White House, jokers on The Hill
Here we are, stuck in the middle of poo.
''Our house, in the middle of our street''
''Our house, in the middle of our (something tells you that you've got to get away from it)''
Middle of the road format radio stations are not my favorite...I prefer classic rock.

I first saw the water of Lake Geneva in the summer of '72, a great time to backpack through Europe with a Eurrail pass and a copy of "Europe On $5 A Day" by Arthur Frommer, first published in 1957 but updated and considerably closer to the target budget 15 years later than now. Target would be more like $5/hour as we travel 60 years later.
I first went to Geneva in 1991. My father worked at an embassy in Paris during the Cold War, and often had trips to Geneva for his work, but didn't tell my mother where he was going. I learned about this after he retired.
The best view of Lake Geneva and the Rhone River valley is from the Cafe Prafandaz in the canton of Vaud and above the village of Leysin. It survived my fondue rampage on the eve of my return trip to London after an extended stay in the Alpine village. Still open 45 years later.
I am fond of eating quality cheese and black olives with a baguette in a Parisian park.
Baguette avec fromage was a staple of the $5/day diet. Another tactic to make budget was to travel via train on overnight schedules, sleeping for free.
Mac n' cheese all the time [would puke now just by looking at it] to save up for a bimmer whilst in uni and, is quite the norm back then in my time.
Look to the fellow at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue as to the impact later in life from consuming excess Mac n' cheese at a younger age.
At a younger age, I never cared for Macs. Preferred Borgers.
Perhaps his favs are presidential food afterall? The guy loves to eat! Bacon, egg, and toast cups; fried mac and cheese bites; meatloaf sandwich; butter-basted rib eye steak; buttered toast crispy fishwiches; cherry-vanilla ice cream.
Swedish meatballs consumption at a younger age won't turn you into an Agent Orange septuagenarian.
Wilander was accused of hitting Swedish moonballs when he won his first French Open.
If you hit a moonball hard enough it will go into orbit around the Moon.
SexiSuri's love for moon balls is only surpassed by his love for Moon Pies.
Someone once said, too many pies makes a tart.
My favorite pie is a tart cherry variety.
Everton's Wayne Rooney promised her wife never to pay for another tart again so he shoplifted a packet of Cherry Bakewells.
Steelers owner Art Rooney promised his struggling city a champion they could believe in and he and his heirs have delivered Sixburgh times.
Al Davis and his heir have a habit of leaving Oakland.
At least GSW will stay in market when they ditch Oakland.
The Oakland Raiders have a long-standing reputation for extra special aggressive play and are one of four NFL teams in the beautiful state of California.
The LA Dodgers failed to win the World Series and match the championship of the NBA earned by the Golden State Warriors of Oakland.
Warriors of the Masai had to allegedly kill a lion as part of their initiation into warriorhood.
Initiation into the Delta fraternity in "Animal House" required the killing of massive amounts of beer and brain cells.
No initiation required to get into the sureshian fraternity?
U kan knot bee sirius! It is a very elaborate ceremony every new Vortexian must undergo before they are ready for life inside The Vortex.
How wood ewe deaphine eat, labourious?
It must surely be mind-boggling! I await with interest.
Seriously, still hoping to learn more.
Baptism by DollyJoeliet as he stands in waist deep Spray is the first step for every gnu Vortexian.
Gnus are also known as wildebeests.
Association with goats should work very well here at TTW.
Three of the four major team sports contested on the North American continent are organized into leagues. Only one is an association...The National Basketball Association.
I wonder how differently would these three have played with the more advanced racquet technology of today?
The poly strings allow bigger swings, more spin, and make net play more difficult. I saw Borg play his comeback match in Monte Carlo, which had a Fellini film atmosphere with everyone wanting to see Borg, where Borg stubbornly stuck with his wood racquet. It did not go well, despite the optimism of the Swedes I was with.
DollyJoeliet of the Spirits would have fit in on the sidelines, cheering for the Swede in his vintage Borg Fila pinstripes. On to victory for the Scandinavian Golden Eagle and then deservedly receiving an autograph on his Donnay Borg Pro Allwood frame.
I love the idea of free and good spirits in the background helping people be good to other people.
Guga seems like a free spirit who is good to other people.
